Hi I have a marantz sr7001 receiver that is acting up. Once in awhile when on standby the power goes out and if I unplug it wiggle the power cord and plug back in it will power back on. Does that mean I have a bad power cord or something else. Once on everything works fine. Also it started to happen when moved it to a smaller spaced entertainment center. Im thinking the cord got bent being in a tighter space. Tia

According to the user manual for the sr77001 at http://us.marantz.com/DocumentMaster/US/DFU_SR7001_SR8001_final_eng.pdf the back panel drawing of the sr7001 looks like this:




I see a female connector for an IEC power cable that lacks a grounding pin. AFAIK that means that a regular IEC power cable (for example found on PC's, business machines and some home appliances including heating pots) can be used. Finding a replacement locally should be reasonably inexpensive and easy. Therefore the logical troubleshooting technique is to obtain a replacement cord and see what happens.


I have built and repaired PCs literally by the thousands and occasionally the problem is the power cord, but unfortunately less frequently its the female jack on the piece of equipment.

Best Buy generally has a tub of power cords in the customer service area. I'm sure you could negotiate a cheap price for one there. I hope the cord fixes your issue.
