That's is terrible news. Is you dealer able to swap your unit for another unit? I'm asking because I'm not familiar with the SquareTrade warranty.

Have you tried a microprocessor reset?
Marantz factory reset
HOW TO RESET THE UNIT
Should the operation or display seem to be abnormal,
reset the unit with the following procedure.
This unit is turned on, press and hold (at the panel) the MULTI
+ SPEAKERS A/B buttons simultaneously for 3
seconds or more.
Remember that the procedure will reset the settings
of the function selector, Surround mode, delay time,
TUNER PRESET etc., to their initial settings.
I have the sr7002 and it was a great upgrade from my Onkyo 705. I was disappointed to learn that neither the 8002 or 7002 can apply Audyssey equalization to incoming HD bitstreams (TrueHD or DTS-HD) due to a lack of processing power. It didn't stop me from getting the 7002 because it sounds great without Audyssey equalization.
