Put the faceplate back on, then insert a paperclip into the tiny pinhole reset button located on the lower left hand corner of the faceplate, for 10 full seconds (count them out) and release. Let me know if you're still having the same problem.

George- were you able to try those steps? Are you still having the same problem?

Hey it worked to reset the unit but now it's stuck on standby. What now?

Thanks. Um, the what now part is hard to say as it indicates this unit has failed/is faulty. I'm assuming you've tried using the source button to turn it on yes?

I've turned it on and off. Goes to Stanby once on.

The receiver has issues internally. How long have you owned it for and when did this occur?

You've given me the info I need. Thanks Aric.

You're welcome. I was asking when it occurred to see if maybe new speakers were connected, or perhaps a wire was pinched behind it, but if you've confirmed it's not that, then it does indicate the unit needs replacement.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Also, before you go, could you please click a POSITIVE RATING (by scrolling all of the way to the top of the page, and clicking 3-5 stars), so that I am credited for working with you today?
