We where watching a movie last weekend and the display started to flicker and than went blank. The receiver works fine sound/power wise. Is it worth opening anything i can fix? I'm pretty good with a solder iron. How much would this cost for a new display!
Well since I just saw this note and it has been months since you made the posting it is probably irrelevant at this point. I had the same problem and it is easy to fix if you are handy with a soldering iron. Unplug and remove the front control panel from the unit. In the control panel are 3 circuit boards, 2 piggy backed on either end of the center/main pwb. You will have to remove knobs from the front to access but once you remove the boards you will see the way the 2 outside boards connect. They plug into the main board and if yours is the same as mine you will see that the plug connectors have become loose at the solder connections. I resoldered mine and all works fine. The connectors are small so be careful when soldering. The way these 3 boards connect is problematic in my mind and I can't imagine that all of them will not eventually have problems.

Disconnect the outside speakers "at the speakers" then turn back on. If the problem persists, disconnect the speakers at the back of the receiver and try again. If the problem stops "at the receiver" check your terminals and make sure no braids are touching each other. If the problem stops when you disconnect at the speaker, chances are good it's a bad voice coil from moisture. Most "outdoor" speakers with a brand name on them have a pretty good warranty. Good speakers have a 10 year warranty and the manufacturer will replace. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you some more
It will be a button on the remote.
Best option is to go through the manual looking at what all the buttons do - one will be a blank the display option to "save power" or to "turn off as many unnecessary electronics as possible so you get as clean a sound as possible".
A bit of a wank feature really, but they build them into it...
If you can solder, examine the pins for the display itself. In particular, look at the pins at either end. These are the power and ground pins. These often develop poor solder connections. Try resoldering these pins and update this with the results.
Check for bad connections on the display pins themselves. Specifically, the ones on the ends are the power/ground pins.
Let us know if that resolves the problem. If not, we'll look further into the circuitry.
try to connect the receiver to a tv via the monitor out from the receiver to the tv. you may be able to see the OSD (on screen display of your settings) change the function on that to turn on the front display. alternatively look on your remote to see if you can turn up the light of the front display.
if these don't work possible that the light of the display has blown.
