Question about Onkyo TX-NR801 Receiver
I am pretty sure that this is going to have to go to a repair shop, but what could it be and how much coul dit cost to fix? The receiver was dropped in a move. It was in a box, but not very well packaged (should have done it myself!). It took the hit in the back of the unit where the powercord goes into it. I took the cover off and could not find anything loose or visablt broken. When you plug it in and push the power button the only thing that happens is the standby light comes on. Ant help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I don't want to be the one to say it, but there's a reason for the sticker that says 'no consumer repairable parts within.' If you have an electronic tech for a buddy, let him/her look at it.Shop time will run anywhere from $45-90 hr, with a 1 hr minimum. As low as prices are these days, consumer electronics are now 'throw it out, get a new one' items. Do us all a favor if you trash it. RECYCLE it. Take it to Goodwill, you local solid waste dept. just don't let it end up in a landfill.Odds are it's something simple but it'll cost to find out.

This is how to reset the receiver to factory default- not sure if it is the same reset you would do for an amp error:
Resetting the system
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver's settings to
the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the front panel STEREO/A.L.C
button, press and hold u STANDBY/ON for about two
The display shows RESET?.
3 Press the front panel AUTO SURR/STREAM DIRECT
The display shows OK.
4 Press HOME THX to confirm.
OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver
has been reset to the factory default settings.
Note that all settings will be saved, even if the
receiver is unplugged.
Unfortunately, amp errors are usually not fixable and require you to bring the receiver on for repairs or just buy a new receiver.
THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH! I basically got through the 1st step or so and the thing came right back on like nothing had ever happened. Although, I think what ended up working for me was actually pressing and holding the STANDBY/ON button with the AUTO SURR/STREAM DIRECT button together for a few seconds....I didn't have to reset to factory settings, nor did I have to do step 3 or 4.
Now the receiver is working just fine like nothing ever happened. All of the input AND output speaker channels all seem to be functioning normally and in peak form, and I've made sure that I have the area around the receiver well ventilated. So....thank you, again...for getting back to where I really wanted to be without having to go through the hassles of disconnecting everything and having it serviced with possible $ and time expenses.
