I just got a Nad 712 off ebay. Upon initial setup, after plugging in and turing the receiver / preamp front power button to put it in standby mode, the led faintly shows a flashing mute indicator.
Once turned on, the mute indicator turns off, but the led is faint and there is no output from the stereo.
Is there a system reset for this unit? Is there a way to turn off mute without a remote? What is wrong? Should I claim DOA and try to get a refund?

It sounds like the CD player is going into standby mode. When this happens it is usually a power supply issue. Look for bad capacitors or solder joints in the power supply. If you don't know what a bad cap or solder joint looks like, take it to a NAD repair shop.
A 712 is not set up to use an Ipod USB dock. You can buy a dock that will use RCA jacks into an old stereo - Apple sells them, others too. Then the Ipod sits up and you can look at it. Or you can buy the 1/8" stereo plug to two RCA plugs that Radio Shack has been selling for 30-40 years, plug one end into your Ipod headphone jack, and run the two RCA plugs into your Aux input. That costs about $5, and is easy as pie. An Ipod will play through any old receiver, but the USB docks will not plug into them.
On my system the bulbs burned out some time ago. Today, I bought a pair of 12v micro lamps at Radio Shack (part 272-1092). Then removed the board behind the display and replaced the bulbs. This required some soldering. The bulbs have held up for more than 6 hours, so I do not think they are going to burn out.
