Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Did the receiver gave you through the firmware update an error message ? Have you performed a factory reset already ?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Have not performed factory reset. I think the update went through only because the error message went away. It use to show ue22.
UE22 error is a defective DSP chip issue on the digital board. If the factory reset does not restore the audio, unfortunately the Digital board in the receiver need to be replaced which might not be cost effective since the part is around $150-180 + Labor around $120. The part number is ***** currently not available.

Reset didn’t work. Sounds like a bad chip. Thanks for your help
