DTS audio chip needs replacing or reballing.?

Can someone recommend a proven electronics technician to do this kind of work in Auckland please. The machine is a Onkyo TX-NR809 < huge thing.

How do you know for sure that it's the chip that's faulty?

Looking on YouTube found heating the chipsets on the HDMI board and the audio works. I heated only the DTS chip.

Avalon may replace the HDMI board for $90 if it's under extended warranty with Onkyo.

Thank you Pyro, I just sent them an email. I don't want to oven heat this board. Besides this, I do not have a fan forced oven.

This machine is not under warranty. Maybe they can help anyway, they have my email now. Is there others in Auckland who do this kind of work?

There is an extended warranty on some models of Onkyo for hdmi board faults.
