Question about Onkyo TX-DS676 Receiver
Lightening recently struck near our home. My Onkyo receiver is plugged into a Monster 3600 power filter. However, after the lightening strike, my receive now generates lots of noise and popping when I turn the volume up. Also it will pop, then show "protected" in the display, and an internal fan comes on. Is my receiver cooked, or can it be repaired?
It depends on what happened to the receiver. Have you tried to connect up the unit to the wall socket yet, without the Monster power strip? If that does not help you, and the unit still gets pops and goes into protect mode, you have an issue with one of the output stages in the amp. I'm afraid that this type of repair can only be diagnosed by a tech who knows how to trouble shoot solid state amplifiers. You may also contact Monster cable, as if you can get the tech to agree with you on the cause of the problem, most of the Monster Cable power strips come with a warranty against this problem from happening and will pay for the repair. Good Luck
