Hi everyone, I am new to the site and hoping to get some help from all you guys that know what your doing. I just bought a used Onkyo sr-800 setup that has the ht-r550 receiver. Well after hooking it all up and trying to test it out and mess with the settings the receiver started to shut off on its own. So me being the idiot that didn't know that is was entering safe mode I continued to turn it back on and then finally some smoke arose from the receiver. Well I unplugged everything and tried turning the receiver on and it does come on for a few seconds and then shuts back off. So I called the repair shop and they said they could probably fix it but I would need to get an estimate. Do any of you know what could have burnt up? Do you think its something that will cost me more then what the receiver is worth? I need some advice cause I am not sure what to do. I am so bummed out cause I was so excited to get it then this happens Any advice or help would be great. Thanks to all of you in advance!
