Disconnect the main power to the receiver and let it set for 15 minutes or so, this will allow the capacitors to discharge fully. If the receiver did not suffer transformer damage, it should turn back on. If you don't have a good surge protection unit with line conditioning like Panamax or Furman, get one! It will save you $$$ in the long run. Hope this helps.

Frank Fulton's unplugging solution worked for an AVR 110. It was unplugged for 24 hours and then powered right up. I believe problem started with a lightning strike and not surge protector. Excellent solution for me.

2002 ford windstar van- left front door window won"t work what to do?

Might have to open and see if the powerr comes to the unit. If not there can be a break inthe door hinges section where the main power comes in.
If power is present but not the control, it can be failure of the switch control, failure of the logic control IC, failure of the motor.

My amp lights aren't all coming on. the green power light is on. but not the blue light behind the lanzar logo. the light turned on earlier when i checked it to see if it worked.. and now. 3 hours later,...

Make sure that the remote switch is activated by the head unit so that the relay trips to contact making the amp come on.
SO make sure you have the auxillary power to switch on, use a multimeter to check the + 12 volt when the head unit is switched.
If there is power and still the amp is not working check onthe main fuse or the relay drive inthe amplifier.

The panel where you turn on the oven does not work. it wont come on at all so we cannot use the oven

First reset the breaker to reset the stove. Sometimes that will work since the oven does seem to be newer. If not the clock control sounds like it is shot. It is a very easy a repair to do yourself. Here is a link for the breakdown of your unit, And the clock at about 50.00 off retail from anyone else:

My sony wega screen went pink & blue then black now the stand by light keeps 5 times and tv will not turn on

This is usually indicative of a power supply or power board failure inside the unit. Unfortunately there is no easy fix and you will need repairs. Please contact Sony to see how you can go about getting a repair scheduled, or check with a local TV repair shop in your area. Sony's number for this department is: 239-768-7547

Power surge in the neighborhood, due to rain storm, caused the unit to not turn on compressor. Fan works but compressor will not turn on

can be failure of the starterr relay which is coupled with the compressor. remove and check, if bad replace. If power goes to click in the relay and the compressor does not work then it is the failure of the compressor.
Estimate the cost of overhauling to the cost of a new one. make sure that power is on to the compressor before it can be confirmed.
Also checck the resistance from the outside and if there is coil leaking or open. check the capacitor also which can be faulty and will not start the compressor.

Your amplifier is having a serious fault within preventing further damage to the amplifier. If could be a failure of the output mosfets, failure of the predriver, failure of the bias to the output mosfets, short inthe speakers- check this out- fault inthe error amp section for wrong current indiication or malfunctions in the mother board. All of this will need careful location of the fault by checking ont these stages. Porceed only if you are competent or seek help. Good day

Muting engaged on power up

This not muting, but protect mode. This means that a problem was detected internally and the unit has shutdown to prevent further damage. The most common cause of this is a failure of the output transistors. Expect a parts cost inthe $20-40 range for this repair.

Condenser Unit not working

Check to see if there is any board in the outside unit with a fuse .Maybe the fuse popped causing the unit to stop working .
Also check to see if you are getting 24 volts on the thermostat wire going to outside unit .
