I suggest you run self diag. press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.
ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink
you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

HDMI compatibility issues continue to plague the industry and this more than likely is the problem. There are a couple of ways around this.Some people insist on "hot rodding" the dvd and tv by hooking up directly to each other avoiding the receiver all togeether (I do this).But you lose functionality and it makes things more complicated for other family members. Your best bet is to use RGB and Digital audio cables.You won't notice any quality loss and there is a possibility it will look better.

If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.
Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....
I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.
I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.
Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?
This note is on Page 11 of the manual:
Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor
"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.
