Maybe so if I took your comment the wrong way. But I still have a very nice receiver sitting here that possibly could be repaired by someone at a reasonable price. That is all I am asking. I did get it to power on. Problem is it will only stay on for about 10-12 seconds then it shuts back off and the red standby lights goes into a blinking mode.
Owners manual says when the power surge protection is activated it will do this. The manual also says to try this to correct:
Disconnect everything from the receiver. Uplug it from the wall for an hour. Turn the volume all the way up to max, then plug it back in.
I did that and it still turns off. Manual says if the above does not work then there is an internal problem and it needs to go back to Onkyo Repair Ctr. I would like to find someone here on this forum who thinks they might be able to fix it. I would be glad to pay a fair and reasonable price for the labor. Is there anyone out there who could help me out??????? Thanks for your help.
