My Denon AVR-X4000 looks like it is need of replacement. My wife decided to try and play with the surround wires in the switchplate in the wall, and managed to touch the banana plugs together while the receiver was outputting sound.
The circuit protection kicked on, however I can't get it to turn off. Now (even with every cable disconnected from the back), whenever I turn the unit on the circuit protection kicks in and turns the unit off after a couple of seconds.
I've tried leaving the unit without power overnight, and I believe I have reset the microprocessor.
Looking for feedback:
1) Unit is WAY out of warranty -- so is it worthwhile looking at getting it repaired (and any suggestions on how to do that)
2) Would a comparable unit be the AVR-X4500H (I only have 5.1 speakers ATM, that I hope to replace with a TBD
setup in a couple of years).
3) The cheapest I have seen it for is $1,000 (from an unauthorized source on Newegg) -- and I think I am willing to forego the warranty to save $600. Unless anyone else has a suggestion.
I think I need to do something in the next week or so, as my display doesn't have built in speakers, so we're limited to streaming content on the computer ATM.
Any feedback/suggestions would be great -- I'm not really tied to any course of action.
