Hey irobot, could you please share how did you fix the "no video" problem after SII9573CTUC replacement? I'm having exactly same situation..

Also did you have to reflash the firmware on the chip?

hello irobot, I'm having a problem with my STR-DN840 unit which has a "protector" mode. I tracked down that SiI9573CTUC is shorting 1.2v to GND and 3.3v to GND, so i'm going to get such chip off of Ebay for 10 bucks and replace it. Have you used a Heat gun to desolder and install the chip so the GND pad underneath got soldered to PCB? I hope that after I replace the chip it all will work.

Success . . . got things resolved! All working fine now.

I also now have a Yamaha RX-V477 and a Sony STR-DN1030 that have the same problem . . . HDMI is decoding audio properly, but I have no video out. No OSD either. I had them on my bench for other problems, so I was surprised to see this same issue when testing.

These units are also using the SII9573CTUC chip . . . I am losing all confidence in Silicon Image (and this chip in particular).

I'm wondering if this is HDCP related . . . although I would expect the OSD to work . . .

If there are any HDMI experts out there, feel free to jump in with any comments or suggestions.

is it a BGA or does it have the pins 'folded' under the chip? Mask off other areas with foil and use a heat gun. Itll come off eventually. To solder, flux the pads, tin them and set chip onto pads and hot air it again until you see it 'move' onto the pads.

Had no sound/video from HDMI ports on this unit. I replaced the HDMI xcvr IC, Silicon Image SII9573CTUC.

Now have sound, is decoding audio program material fine, but no video. No OSD either.

Any ideas? Is their possibly firmware that runs on this chip? Or do I still have a problem elsewhere?

Sony says this chip is non-replaceable, but only because I think it has the bottom of the die exposed for soldering onto top-side ground plane, which most shops are not equipped to do.
