Hello I have owned this reciever for about 3 years now. My problem is that the reciever shut off by it self a couple months back after unplugging and plugging back in the reciever continued to work fine. But just the other day the reciever cut of and will not turn back on. I tried unplugging and plugging back in but all I hear is a clicking sound as if the reciever is trying to turn on but will not. Also after a few attempts the clicking sound completely stops.I also disconnected all devices from reciever but no luck. It does not smell as if anything is burnt out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx in advance.

Re: Should I just Buy a new one?
You have a bad power supply or the audio output circuit has a short in it. You are correct by saying its probably betterv off getting a new unit. Most likly cost you more then a brand new shiny unit would . Good Luck

Usally When something like this occurs its because the amp cant handle the reciever. Meaning the reciever is pushing out more than what the amp can handle. As a safty feature to save you from blowing your amp or speakers the amp will shut it self down to minimum as you described. This also occurs when the amp over heats or doesnt have enough ventalation and once again as a safty feature to save your amp it shuts down. My first suggestion is to turn the "Loud ON" mode off on your reciever. As this feature can blow your speakers and can also cause this problem. Also do not use any factory settings on your reciever. It is almost always the bass in any given system that causes this so turn the bass down some on your reciever or on your amp turn it down and then adjust up and down from the reciever. Im sure you probably like the bump bump bump, I do to but your going to have to eiather buy an amp that can handle what your reciever is pushing, or turn it down a bit. You should also check the fuses for not only your amp but for the system under the hood near the battery. My own personal experience I have blown fuses when the system shuts down. Hope this helps
It's a lithium battery.I can tell .Have same problem sometimes. Either need to clean the contacts on the battery and drill (use Paslode tool cleaner,aereole spray) or get a new battery. Most of my battery powered tools are Ridgid, I like them and they usually hold up , but like any other brand they can be unreliable. I buy an average of 5 new batteries a year. Some last about 6 weeks , others 3 years.
You may have a colorwheel going bad. The bearings start going out and this is an indication of the failure. The colorwheel is located in the light engin e therefore you may want to get a qualified tech to look at it
http://www.geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=40540&thid=564949 Hoover only two years old and it stopped working! Posted by baby_nurse on May 02, 2008 My Hoover self propelled wind tunnel was working great until a couple of days ago when it started shutting on and off while vacuuming. I thought it was the outlet but when I plugged it into two different outlets it did the same thing. Then finally yesterday it just stopped working it won't even turn on when plugged in. I thought it was the switch but it is not. Is it the motor? Has the motor burned out? Do I need to buy a new one? Help!! Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover U6616-900 Windtunnel Bagless Upright I think you are right, if it is not the switch then it would be the motor. Does it smell bad like a burning smell? If so it is definitely the motor and then @ that point you may want to get an estimate for motor replacement, and keep in mind of what you spent on the vacuum versus what the cost of repair might be. My own rule of thumb is if it cost more than ½ of the price I paid for it then you have to decide – do I want to pay the repaired cost for the vacuum or do I want to purchase a new one. Just a suggestion... You may want to check with your local vac dealer.So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.hoover.comTelephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Don – The Vac Man Go Ahead.Use Us.
