Reciever first lost volume but still showed reseption.Turned receiver off than tried to power on again.It will not fully turn on. Powers up to show Sirius Logo than it beebs and repeates the power up boot - this continues indefinitely. Please advise - if service tech is needed please advise as to where I might be able to go for service if it is not something I cannot do myself. I live in the Buffalo New York area.
I have the same problem.
The final soultion as per Sanyo tech support and Sirius tech support is that radio is dead and there is nothing you can do. It has to be sent in for repair. You can call Sirius and they can direct you on how to best handle the servicing.
The gottcha - as always - is the radio only has a 1 year warranty, so it costs more to repair it then to buy a new radio. Hopefully you are still covered by the warranty. This radio is a real PoS btw.
If your lucky, you are still covered by the warranty.

Hello Cindi, If the audio does not come on for a short period of time this usually indicates that there is an issue with the audio relay. To try to fix this, I would suggest a reset of the unit. After resetting I would also take another step of doing a power cycle. To do this you will unplug the unit from the wall for about 10-15 minutes to draw out all of the stale power in it. If these two steps do not address the issue then the receiver would have to go in for service. Thanks, FJD
I had the same problem - Onkyo had me reset the unit by holding down VCR and pushing the power button. Make sure you record your settings before doing this - as the unit will be fully reset. This solved the video problem for me.
If the receiver is powering off/on, there may be an issue with the power supply. Have you unplugged the receiver from the electrical outlet? If not, unplug for 10 seconds and plug back in. This will reboot the receiver and have it reacquire the satellite signal. If the lights do not illuminate after plugging the receiver back into the electrical outlet, please call 1-800-333-3474. We need to replace the receiver.
The receiver may be too under powered for your speakers or the speaker ohm's may not be matched for your amp.
The reason it is shutting off is likely because the amp is becoming overloaded. At lower volumes the amp can handle the load of the speakers, but at higher volumes the power supply of the amp can't keep up with the power demand the speakers are pulling.
If you were previously able to turn the reciever high without turning off, then there is likley something wrong with the amp or possibly a blown speaker.
Try measuring the resistance of the speakers if you have access to a multimeter. They should normally read 8 ohms for home speakers, but some common home speaker impedances in order from (I'm assuming) most common to least common are are 8, 4, 2(bose), and sometimes 10 or 12 ohms. The lower the number of ohms, the more power the amp will need to put to the speakers and the more chance you could be overloading your amp.
A fuse breaker or resetting electronic componet device attaced to the audio receiver protects the amp & speakers for destruction! The quality of the amp ,spkers& spks. wires help on choosing for protection shut downs! Of course at 10 volume you risk all of the amp in the receiver , buy a higher quality brand reciever ,intergrated amp, single amp . BE CAREFUL AT THE HIGHER VOLUME RATINGS YOU RISK HEARING DAMAGE! FOR REAL!
Go through the process of setting up the remote again instead of trying the volume first use the power off button. In my experience, Sony receivers can be picky and power cycling "will" insure the code set, then try the volume.
