don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but....i use a sr-5002. i've had it about 6 months. last night our power blinked, and after i reset the surge protector everything was back to normal except for the receiver. the "standby" light was blinking fast but it refused to power up. after some forum reading i found out that it was in "protect" mode and that earlier models could be reset by unplugging and letting it set for a few minutes then plugging it back in. unfortunately, i guess i have a newer version which apparently was changed so that once it goes into "protect" mode it can't be changed back except by marantz itself or an authorized repairman because if there was damage done it could do more damage by turning back on. anyway, i get all that, but my real questions is if there is some way to keep the receiver from going to that mode every time there is some sort of disturbance with the power? it's under warranty but it's a pain to have to take it to get changed back every time and eventually the warranty will run out. i've looked into some power conditioners/surge protectors but i don't know if that's the answer. any answers/suggestions?
