^^
The most common problem is a loose speaker wire from one post touching another post. Is the red light flashing quickly (eg. 2x/sec) or more slowly (eg. every 2 sec)?

The E300 is a 75W AVR so that means it will output roughly 75W into 2CH and roughly only 60W into 5CH; however, on average your speakers are likely to only draw <10W/CH.

Nor will you likely see it on any brands site. If the marketed rating on an AVR is 100W/5 or 7CH, take that to mean 100W/2CH.
