Question about Arcam AVR-100 Receiver
Led light is not on and it will not turn on, tested lead and all is ok?
SOURCE: We just purchased an LG,
Actually, it doesn't have ANY digital outputs. Just what do you require one for? Name specific models and functions when replying.
Do you think the TV NEEDS optical audio from the receiver? Maybe the TV could survive on just analog audio from the video source, while the GOOD audio goes to the ARCAM since the ARCAM is going to do the hard work of managing and driving the REAL speakers.

Generally speaking, an amp smokes or tries to protect itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.
