Any suggestion will be of great help. Thanks in advance for the help.
I have the Panasonic AE4000 and the prepro version of the SR7005 receiver (pretty much the same but with no internal amps) AV7005, so I guess I'm better qualified to respond than most. The image indeed goes black from time to time and I've noticed it seems triggered by certain images, namely a bright flash of light in a scene or fades to black and especially fades to white.


A sudden bright flash might occur in a movie with a scene showing a strobe light, which is not terribly common, however fades to black and fades to white are quite common at the ends of TV commercials.


There's nothing that can be done to fix this, as far as I know, I just live with it. HDMI has many problems and the industry has always taken a finger pointing approach to "solving" the issues: if you consult Marantz they will point the finger at Panasonic and claim the problem lies with them, and if you consult Panasonic they will point the finger at Marantz! Especially considering all these models are discontinued at this point, I'd be surprised if any engineers at either company are spending any time at addressing this problem. I also later bought the Panny 7000 and it has the same issue, BTW.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass, etc., any more than we pick the ending of a play. High fidelity means an unmodified, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original artist's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..

Thank you @M.Zillch and @jdsmoothie . I don't think extender is a problem, the same works fine with pioneer VSK model.
I brought a standby pioneer A/V receiver. I love Marantz for its sound though, that's the reason I wanted to see if someone from Marantz forum can help me out or faced similar problem.


@M.Zillch - This doesn't happen as a flickering and it is random. doesn't happen only when I watch blu-ray or high definition movies or during any action sequence. It happens for no reason every 2 minutes even while watching some channel over DTH. Sad part is even when I just play songs from laptop through HDMI this happens. Annoying it is because my whole family looses interest while watching a movie.


I have to restart the A/V and re-plug the laptop to A/V and it works fine for 2 to 3 minutes, before the problem crops again.
isn't the firmware released for Indian and Singapore Marantz av7005? Does the update loop mean I cannot upgrade the firmware anyday?
