Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Expert:  Nathan replied 2 months ago.

Are you saying it won't turn on at all?
Does the red light on the front flash, or do you hear any clicks?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
no click just standby
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 months ago.

So the light won't flash, and it won't even attempt to power on?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

Thank you for confirming.

This is a protection circuit kicking in to protect the receiver from damage.

This could be caused by a short in one of the speakers or components, thermal fault, or an internal defect in the amp itself.

You can try a few fixes yourself. To begin, power the receiver off, and disconnect all speakers and components. Try to turn it back on in Tuner (am/fm) mode and see if it will stay on. If it does, power off and reconnect 1 speaker, then power on to test again. Continue this process until you isolate the speaker or component causing the problem, or until everything operates normally.

Let me know the results, or lack thereof, and I’ll advise further if needed.
