Expert:  Louie replied 2 months ago.

Appreciate the additional information.

Perhaps an HT-RC230? ...or an SKS-HT230?

Have you tried a RESET of the HT-RC230?

How do u reset it
Expert:  Louie replied 2 months ago.

Consider a RESET. A reset is both a test and a try of a fix. As it implies, a reset would force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches and config errors but would include memories, presets and user preferences. After a reset, the initial setup would have to be performed. If have not been done and should you venture to try: Please click / tap HERE.

May have to be done a number of times.

This is very critical - a reset however would not be corrective of an internal hardware concern; but it would be confirmed. In some instances, it may even expose/cause other issues.

Ok tried reset manytimes still going to standby
Expert:  Louie replied 2 months ago.

As posted above, then it would be indicative of 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 perhaps a soldering iron?
