Did you try the procedure I outlined above? From what you describe it appears that you have not eliminated the speaker wire as the problem. There may be an intermittent short or an electromagnetic effect in the wire, thus delaying the time it takes to affect the receiver.
1. Does your receiver run (i.e. does not
go into blinking mode) with nothing attached
for at least 10 minutes?
2. If it won't run by itself for at least 10 minutes. Stop
. It's an internal problem that needs hands-on evaluation from a tech.
2. If it does run by itself, follow the procedure I suggested in the post above yours. If you want to take a shortcut regarding the wire test, just use a different speaker wire-- preferrably new if available. Connect only one
speaker wire at a time.
3. If the receiver starts blinking with the new wire attached then you've probably eliminated the faulty wire scenario-- because what are the odds of a new (or several different wires) all being defective?
4. So, assuming the speaker wire is not the problem, you need to see what the wiring does on the other
speaker terminals in order to eliminate the possiblity of a short at any one of them.
If you follow the procedure I outlined above, detailing the results in your reply, I can tell you more.
