Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, the described symptom and error code points to an internal hardware issue. 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?

Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Likely suspects after a review of the repair/Service Manual + schematics would be on:

  • • speaker terminal(s) connector JK5400 (least likely);
  • • low or missing amp voltage(s) ± 30V & +12V (less likely);
  • • cold solder (likely);
  • • failed amp module output IC5001 (most likely).

Will you attempt a DIY?
