Marantz SR6001 AV Surround Receiver - Blinking Standy Light

Unit just shut off - standby/power light starting blinking rapidly.

Unplugged unit to see if it would reset - to no avail. Standy/power light still blinking rapidly.

Any ideas? Marantz SR 6001Power and StandBy Light came on and is blinking Rapidly. There is a review at CNET that slams this receiver. Do not Buy. Actually looks to be discontinued. Marantz is requesting we send in for repair and we will be lucky to get it back in 6 - 8 weeks

    Can anyone tell me how to reset the protection circuit WITHOUT sending it in for repair? If so I will happily pay the $9.99. I Know my way around a circuit board and a VoltMeter. Is there a way to disable the protection circuit? The nearest repair facility is quite some distance and I do not want to go there

    same exact problem. I have requested help from Marantz

    I have the same problem that got triggered due to a short speaker cable. But I have already removed the shorted wire but not able to find a solution to reset the protection circuit..

    If any one have a solution to reset the protection it would be great as in India, Delhi there is no direct support for Marantz even.

    the protection circuit has kicked in because there is a dc overflow or there is a short

    I would start looking on the power amp for the problem

    you cannot disable the protection circuit , it is protecting the rest of the circuit , if you did bypass the protection circuit you will just burn somthing else out

    look for a short in the power amp , that is the most likely cause of the protect circuit but other components need to be tested to make sure , like an electrolytic capacitor , bad resistor , thats where the problem is most likely going to come from

    this is the protection circuit, it needs repair

    I have found a standby mode reset code for another Marantz receiver and it worked fine for my Marantz SR4003. Just press Surround mode + Exit + Clear simultaneously and the receiver should perform a hard reset. You will lose (part of) your setup settings, but it should at least come out of its standby mode in this way.

For resetting sr6001: When power lights blinking, press "clear" + "pure direct" + "7.1 ch input" simultaneously for 3 seconds.

My sr5004 marantz receiver has gone into standby with the indicator is blinking how do i get ride of it

If the red led is blinking fast (8x/second) the power supply is likely damaged and the unit will need to be serviced. If blinking slow, the most likely cause would be a shorted speaker connection. To help find the cause, unplug everything including the power and speakers. Connect only the power and try to turn the unit on. If the light doesn't blink, you know you have a shorted connection. Power off and connect the inputs and then power back on. If the light is not blinking, you know the problem is with an output connection. Just find the bad connection by process of elimination.

SR5004 amp on standby mode (red light blinking twice a second) / cant get it out of stand by mode

I am having the same issue as well. If you press "clear" "exit" and "surround mode" all at the same time, it will come back on. It seems to be an overheating issue. If you put a fan on it, it helps, but does not fix permanently. Anyone have any ideas for a permanent fix?

Send it for repair. The receiver has a problem with power supply or a bad channel.

Reciever not working

Are all the speakers GOOD and all connected right?
If so then you have at least one blown output amplifier module.
