Question about Insignia Audio Players & Recorders
The only speakers i have hooked up to this receiver are two 8ohm bookshelf speakers. when the volume is up not even half-way, the receiver will shut off. like if i watch a dvd and there is a gunshot, the receiver will shut off. this doesn't seem to be normal and it's really quite frustrating. i'd like to return it, but it's over a year old now. perhaps this is a common issue with this receiver and Best Buy will fix it or replace it?
any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

the output transistors are blown in one or more channels also the driver transistors are blown in the same channel.
you can find this problem real easy using a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) on the continuity test(BEEP).
start be removing the amp section from the receiver and laying it on the table bench whatever no going from B-C and C-E if any beeb there junk and the driver transistors are also and there are a few resistors that are junk.
