Hello and sorry you're having problems. How long have you owned this receiver for and when did the problem occur? Also has the receiver ever shut itself off in the past?
Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The receiver is 3 years old. The problem occurred about ten days ago. Its never shut itself off before. Its not used more than a couple of hours a week.
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks for the reply. In order to rule out an external fault in the speaker wiring, or the voice coil of one of the speakers, can you please unplug the unit from power, then disconnect ALL speaker wires (label them if you need to), and then plug the receiver back into power to see if it will turn on?
