System lights up when plugged in but stays in stand-by mode
My Sherwood RD-6500 Receiver will light up when plugged in. By this I mean I plug it in and press the power button and everything looks OK. The next step has always been to press the stand-by button in order to get the reciever to truely 'turn on' (i.e. produce sound and use the buttons). As of right now all that happens is it stays on standby mode even when I push the standby button as though it was frozen.
Earlier today I was moving it from my house to my dorm room and made sure to take extra care in terms of handling and transporting it. There is a possibility that a drop of water may have gotten in to it through the top vents but I doubt it did. Even if it did, it would've dried in the time it took for me to move and unpack.
If you guys know of anything I am not doing, please let me know!!

The TV has a coaxial digital (SPDIF) output, and the receiver has two coaxial digital inputs available. Simply connect the TV's output to the receiver with the appropriate cable (shielded cable with RCA plugs) and select the input on the receiver. The TV manual says you only get digital output when watching a digital channel. The manuals for both your TV and receiver can be downloaded from the manufacturers' websites if you need copies.

I was playing around with my Sherwood RD 6513 and adjust the the output level to its maximum, amongst other settings. This limited my output on the amp to a maximum volume of 65 not 90+.. Anyway i pluged in the microphone and done another 'auto setup' of the volume levels and distances, and this allowed the volume to exceed 65 again!
Also if you have an external source such as a DVD player - i would assume you have already checked its output volume setting?
