You need to call Onkyo and have it sent in for a repair. Unless you are technically inclined, I would not advise opening the unit and checking for a blown fuse or burnt resistor, which would be the step to take if you are technically inclined. Be VERY careful when you open the unit - the capacitors still hold very voltage and bridging those capacitors before they are fully drained could result in very serious shocks or burns. Another option would be to take it to an authorized reseller and have them take a look at it.

    What do you mean, they talked you through?

    If you want the receiver to work, the correct step will be to call Onkyo and have it sent in for repair. Like I said before, unless you are very technically inclined, I wouldn't advise opening the unit and looking over the power supply board, as this will not only void your warranty but is also potentially dangerous. I'm not sure why you rated my solution as "Inappropriate" - it was most appropriate and in fact the correct advice. Please remedy this mistake.

    Given the lack of information about the circumstances surrounding the problem (was there a storm? lightning might have been the culprit. are you sure the unit is plugged into a working outlet?), I can't offer any advice other than call Onkyo, and no one else is going to be able to pinpoint your problem when all you say is "I pushed the power button, it does not work".

    Did you verify the receiver is getting 120V? Power?

Won't power on

Check on the back panel for a fuse. Usually a black knob with a curved arrow going 1/2 circle. push in and turn counter-clock wise or unscrew to release the fuse. Hopefully it has one like that. Easy to get to. Hope it has that, if not...idk. Oh yea, don't go by eye determining if its good or not, use a multi-tester to know for sure.

Remote will no longer power on Onkyo HT-S3500. Once I turn it on manually, the rest of the functions work properly.

I just had this same issue. I tried to change the batteries for the factory remote that came with the Onkyo HT-S3500 (remote: RC-799M). Still no luck. It would not power on with the remote, despite the light flashing and the and all other remote function working. If I powered on the receiver manually, everything worked (except power on/off).
I just pushed a button on the remote labeled "REMOTE MODE RECEIVER" and viola, the remote now powers the device on and off and works just like usual. Not sure what the heck happened, but I would suggest pushing that button on your remote.
