Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I think I ran into this problem. If you have all RCA cables going into the back of your reciever you may be shorting it out. For example: I had my cable box plugged into my receiver via RCA component video and RCA audio cables. Since the cable box has a earth ground and the TV has a seperate earth ground, my box was shorting out and when it didn't short out it was sending out a 60Hz "Hummm" when I turned up the volume on the reciever. Then I purchased all HDMI and fiber optic replacement cables. Damn was there a difference. No more Humm and no more shorting. Hopes this helps.

I installed a 4" fan to the rear of the receiver and plugged it into the switched outlet. Never had an issue
with over heating by using installed fan.

If you look at the manual, there are steps detailed to reset the receiver. This usually happens if the receiver becomes very hot. Try resetting and you should be okay.
The other problem is short circuit on the speaker wires. Check the speaker wires again.

The unit most likely blew up a capacitor. If you look in through the slots on the top of the unit you should see 2 big black caps (C6901 and C6902) with shiny silver-ish tops. I should also point out that you probably flew up a 125v 8A (F901) glass fuse on the board that the AC cord plugs into. The glass fuse can be found at Radio Shack, but the caps are a bit more troublesome to find. They are 10,000uF 69v and thats just not a standard part, so you may need to up the voltage requirement and buy a 75v cap. Total to fix the amp yourself: Should be about $35 with shipping.

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings., Thanks, JT
