Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver
After my house was hit by lightning my Onkyo receiver will not output any sound. Tried different speakers, tuner mode, I do hear some noise coming from the subwoofer but no real sound.
If your receiver was connected to any power source and that power source was not a surge protector strip there may be damage to the receiver as lighting travels. Another thing to consider is the fact that many people will put their equipment on surge protectors but the cable is still connected to the TV etc...This is just another avenue for the lightning to get into the home and blow up your system. I always disconnect any cable from my computer and TV. The power source from the wall is also unplugged when there is a storm just to be sure. Surge protectors are limited in their use as well. I don't believe they can take too many lightning hits. It is best to change them out.
