A few days ago I was watching TV on my 5.1 Paradigm / Onkyo 808. It was CNN, and set at a very moderate volume, so nothing that should cause any issues. While watching with the remote in my hand, the sound totally cut out. After struggling with it for over an hour-plus, I feel like I tried everything...
1) Checked that my CBL/SAT and GAME inputs are both cutting out sound
2) Reset the 808 to factory default settings (via holding VCR/DVR while pressing standby)
3) Unplugged the unit for over 24 hours
4) Tried to rerun Audyssey speaker setup
Through all of the above and everything else I can think of, I haven't gotten my receiver to output any sound, even after resetting factory settings and running Audyssey right after that. It was working fine right up until the sound went out, so I can't imagine it's any sort of cabling issue (plus it's multiple different inputs having the sound issue, and none of the 5.1 speakers have any sound).
Does any of this make any sense relative to the other problems listed in this posting? I'm really confused and not sure where to turn.
For any feedback saying I'm just going to have it serviced, I bought the unit thru an Amazon 3rd party vendor called 6th Ave Electronics. Should I try to contact Amazon or 6th Ave, find a locally certified service provider, or call Onkyo direct and have it sent to them? Though I'd love a new unit, I'm really just looking to get my 808 fixed if it's truly faulty, and I'm willing to pay for it if necessary. Ugh.
My problem sounds a little different than the others posted, so any insights would be greatly appreciated!!!!
