Hi Keith,

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Technician: ITPeter, Engineer replied 2 years ago

The orange light indicates that the system is in standby mode, and the lack of a blue light indicates the system is not getting sufficient power to turn on correctly.

Technician: ITPeter, Engineer replied 2 years ago

There may be a fault with the Standby button if the system is not turning on or responding, so try using the Standby button on both the remote and on the system itself.

If there is no response using either method, then it is likely that the internal power supply circuitry has suffered a fault and the system will require a repair.
