    My surround system just started to have a problem. The standby/o
    switch flickers between a green "on" light and a re
    "standbylight" and won't power up. I downloaded th
    service manual, but I can't even get into the diagnostics program.
    I'm not sure what to do. I've searched the net quite a bit and foun
    that other people have had the same problem with this unit. I'm to
    cheap to send it to a repair shop. Can anyone recommend a website o
    resource to help diagnose the problem

    Has it been unplugged and left to sit? Sometimes, Microprocessors just
    lose their minds...Happened to My Cable Box twice.

    We use it just about every day. After the incident, I have had i
    unplugged for three to four days and still doesn't fix the problem

    Just about says it all. Unless this is a common problem with discussions etc
    going on out there, you're probably unlikely to be able to repair it

    Maybe time for a new unit - hopefully not a Philips.

    For Surround receivers I recommend Yamaha, Sony, Denon, and Onkyo.
