Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, the SC-N8 are speakers. Determine and re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the amplifier / receiver that powers these speakers.
Still, is the amp / receiver that powers the SC-N8 completely / electrically dead now? ...plugged in into any known to be good outlet?
Appreciate the post back and pictures Clare.
Please check the back of the receiver. It would have a name plate with the model number; something like an RCD-N8.
And it would appear to be an internal hardware issue.
I reviewed the repair / Service Manual (not the Owner's Manual) and there is a 4A fuse labeled F801 inside that may have blown (most likely). It is also possible (likely) for the thermal fuse (TH801) to have failed and/or any of the standby / power supply circuit components (least likely).
Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron?
I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, there is no quick-n-easy fix and neither is there a workaround; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.
The standard warranty would be for 12 months on parts and service.
The only listing for New Zealand would be:
Glad that the above information may serve your purpose.
Good luck and thank you too for the opportunity to share the information.
