@Daniel Avila You may want to edit and remove that price tag, this topic and I believe every other on this side of the forum is no price talk allowed. Personal experience here I was “warned” by a mod once doing the same.

Thanks, appreciate it. What do I lose by doing that? Getting up from the couch? : )
Ugh, I've been looking at a 4K TV and am just realizing my SR8012 won't support 120HZ, VRR, etc.

Can I drive the picture and HDMI 2.1 through the TV directly and somehow get just sound to my speakers from the SR8012? Or am I screwed?
If ARC or EARC do not work out, run a optical from your devise to the receiver and HDMI direct from the devise to the TV.....

Hey guys I have posted this elsewhere as well but my Marantz SR8012 has the dreaded .5 second blinking red light. It turns on for a few seconds and then one last 'click' and it immediately turns off and starts blinking red. People have told me it could be a power safety issue or that a component died.

I am able to navigate in the little menu for the first few seconds but then 'click' and it turns off. Think it might be possible for me to fix this this on my own? Do you know of any resets or tricks I could try? Nothing else is plugged in when this happens.

I'd love to get this bad boy working again but I'm unsure if its worth the trouble.

If doing at least 5-10 microprocessor resets (see post #4) does not resolve the issue, then send in for warranty repair if still within 3 years of purchase date, otherwise if not, if purchased with a credit card, check if the card offers a 1 year extended warranty as a free benefit.

What exactly is "5-10 microprocessor resets"? Someone else told me about a master reset but that also confuses me.

Refer to post #4.
I had a similar problem and hand to do a factory reset after a power failure. You will loose all your settings. Hopefully after you do this things will work. If you are using the MultiEQ app you will be able to restore your room correction if you saved it.

Sadly Holding down the power button with the Game and Info settings does nothing.

It is a little tricky to do it. Make sure power is off when you hold game and info. It may take a few tries.
See instructions below. I was about to give up and it finally worked.
My apologies, I was able too get "initializing" to appear bur even after 5/6 of these resets it still turns off. Some power protection is still being tripped it seems

I would carefully check all your speaker connection wires. You could have a short somewhere with wires touching at the receiver or speaker end.

So, it seems like the PS5 doesn't play nice with the SR8012. Cannot get it to passthrough 4K 60Hz HDR. My options are 1080p 60Hz HDR or 4K No HDR.

I know they will upgrade the HDMIs to HDMI 2.1, or at least that is what I read. Does anyone know if they will upgrade the firmware to include the "Speaker Preset" feature where you can chose between two different speaker configuration settings?

The SR8012 is a 2017 model. It will not be upgraded to HDMI 2.1 nor get the "Speaker Preset" feature. You must upgrade to a 2020 model (eg. SR8015) for these features.

It will be impossible to upgrade to HDMI 2.1 because of hardware but Marantz could offer two different speaker configuration settings through firmware. I heard that they updated the firmware last week but I don't know if they included the two speaker settings. While the 8012 was introduced in 2017 it still was current until recently.

Again. These 2018 models are not receiving the "Speaker Preset" feature. Not even the current "flagship" 2018 Marantz AV8805 received it. Only the 2020 Denon/Marantz models received it.
