Moving house and getting rid of a number of odds and sods.  This lot as per title. Located in Paraparaumu and would prefer not to send them anywhere (i.e. pickup preferred), although the Onkyo and Panasonic are in original packaging.


(SOLD) Panasonic HWT260GN Freeview twin tuner 1TB HDD recorder - $100 ono

Simply haven't watched any FTA TV since we got back from walking the length of the country 18 months ago!! (Changes one's view of the world - a bit like Covid-19)! Goes as expected


(SOLD) Onkyo TX-SR705 HT receiver - $100


This has been my daily driver for TV-based viewing for a number of years now. As far as I know everything works, although the volume button on the remote can be a bit temperamental when trying to turn volume down (there is a technique!!).  It did have a set-up mic for auto speaker setup but I can't seem to find it


Brother HL-5240 mono laser printer - FREE to a good (or not-so-good) home


Again, just don't use it now.  Not sure how much toner is left but otherwise it goes fine. Like many cheaper lasers it does suffer from paper curl a little which makes it interesting trying to print long documents! But, hey, its free :-)

I'd be keen on the receiver.  Will be in touch, just need to see when I can get down your way next.
Are you ever up towards Palmerston North?

Bargain at that price I reckon, I've had my one for ten years now and it's been bullet proof.

I still have in everyday use the lower spec SR576 model. 

 

I've replaced all the capacitors on the hdmi board and it sorted the issues I had around that. 

 

Went bang once and lost all eprom settings, but came right after a power off/on.

 

Not perfect but impressive to still be going some 10+ years later pretty much the same as day one.

Yeah, there was a lot of talk about the boards failing and heat issues also but mine has been faultless since day one - maybe I'm just very lucky.

The issue is real so you're just lucky if you haven't had it yet.  The hdmi board sits flat/horizontal above a hot section of the device below.  The heat rises up and eventually stuffs the components there.

 

Keeping it well ventilated can help but eventually I had connectivity issues by hdmi and had to replace the capacitors on that board.  Was about $5 max in parts and some time, so no biggy.

 

Not sure that I have anything going into that via hdmi anymore come to think about it.  Whole world has changed now with on demand apps and smart TVs etc, so I have way way less AV devices nowadays.

 

 

 

Sorry to take this thread off topic!
