Standby light won't turn off on receiver r 840. Tried doing what manual says and turn off autostandby mode but still light stays on. do you turn off ? i have tried everything..or does it always stay...

"Standby" means the unit has wall power but is not yet turned ON by you. When you turn the unit ON, the Standby light should extinguish and other signs of life should be evident.

It is basically an indicator that there is potential life in the unit. If it ever truly turns OFF, that is a problem.

Standby light remains on for Harman Kardon 5 disc CD player

Modern electronics stay in standby mode when you turn them off because certain circuitry must remain powered up to be alert for remote control signals. In essence its always awake looking for the remote to send a signal at which time it will turn on the rest of the circutry and fully power up the unit. It is not a fire hazard and the LED's used now days have lifetimes of several thousand hours. You can plug it into the switched outlet on your reciever if you wanted to. However be sure that you do not exceed the rated wattage for the switched outlets. You can determine this by figuring out the rated wattage for the outlet(s) as it will show this rating near them and it will show the wattage required by your cd player on the back of the unit somewhere near the power cord.

I had the same problem. I can't fix it, and neither could RCA customer service. The only way I could think of was to find a surge protector extension cord that had a on/off switch to make it easier to turn on. Another solution might be to buy a cheap wall timer, the kind you use to turn lights on/off. That resets it every day and it should be OK.
