Question about Arcam AVR-200 Receiver
I have a similar problem where the receiver turns off after about 3 minutes of turning it on. It started out infrequently, but now I can't use it at all. I am trying to find a service center to fix it. I live in Milwaukee, WI and the only place that carried Arcam shut down. So now the search is on.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

I had this same problem with my Arcam AVR300. I ended up shipping mine to an Arcam repair center and they repaired it and shipped it back for under $200. The problems were cracked connection on the start relay and they replaced power supply diodes. Very well worth it and now I can enjoy it again!

The problem (Known to Arcam) is with the some diodes in the power supply to the DSP board. Over time they do not work properly and the power fluctuation makes the sound distort. They need replacing (only once to a higher spec) if you contact Arcam they can advise you.

SOURCE: Arcam AVR300. When in surround
I'm going to assume there's nothing unusual going on here like bi-amping or speakers being driven by external amps on the pre-outs; and that the volume levels were not really high when it occurred. You would have pointed that out, right?
Is is possible that you may not notice the symptom on music or action unless you are really focusing on it?
On page E-13, step 2, what's your configuration?
Does this only happen with a certain digital source?
There are some interesting (mal)adjustments possible on this beast. ADV5 on page E-17, is one. If one source is acting up, would a 'wrong' setting here be responsible?
It's possible that a given digital source may drop out or degrade and if you also have the analog audio connected it may temporarily switch to that feed until the bitstream is restored.
Be sure any optical cables are run so they have no small-radious bends which would cause light signal loss.
I hope this either helps or stimulates an aha moment for you.
