Pioneer SC75 turns off - blue light flashing
I have tried in the main SC75 thread but had no luck yet getting attention I suppose.
So, sorry for the repetition and noob question.
I just got back from a 3 week long trip, the SC-75 suddenly on audio segments that are a little louder - but played way beyond the maximum that was used normally, seems to turn off - with a blue light blinking on the front panel directly under where it says "iPhone".
It can be turned on again, so it does not refuse to turn on again.
I bought the most extended warranty I could get from Best Buy, but even that is probably expired by now.
Is this a "power protection" shutoff from the AMP? Is it realistic to even try to fix it - after all the amp is not new and may not have much residual value after over 4-5 years. Should I just forget it? It is a nice amp though.
What can be done?
Is it likely just a blown simple component that any pro can distinguish easily and fix for a hand full dollars in a few minutes, or is this type of diagnosis/repair typically very involved?
I have read people referencing some front panel button combination to try a reset of the protection circuit, but I did not find the right one yet for this receiver it seems - no difference at least - or not sure, since off/on will get it back to work temporarily.
Are there any diagnostic tools to narrow down the exact component that causes the problem?
Which "out" it is, and so on.
Any wiring or speaker problem that could have caused it instead if not the amp itself? - long shot, as the speakers and wiring have been unchanged for years, so there should not be a surprising problem.
