    Hi, my amp displays "poweringoff" within 5 seconds of being turned on.
    I'm fairly certain this is the protection mode, but I don't know how to
    reset it. I know that some models have a combination of two buttons you
    hold while powering it on, but I can't find any info on this model on
    the web.

    I don't have the SM, and I'm not sure I want to shell out 15 bucks to
    get it. If that doesn't fix it, I don't have the electronics skills to
    go any deeper -- at that point I'd have to take it somewhere to be
    looked at, and the 15$ would be a waste. Does somebody happen to know
    the combination for this model, or maybe some common ones that I could
    try that might apply to the 810?

    Much obliged!

    I have a note at the back of my bench that says " To reactivate system
    control processor, press 'ADVANCED SURROUND' and 'ENTER' ( by jog )
    together for 2 seconds ".

    I'm pretty sure that this was for a Pioneer that I was having similar
    trouble with, but it is likely that if yours is going into protect mode,
    there is something actually wrong with it.

    Probably wasn't for the same model - I can't remember now - CRAFT's disease
    and all that ( !! ) but worth a try, as often, the same codes do for more
    than one model from a manufacturer.

    This problem can be caused most commonly either from overloading the unit,
    or by shorted finals. I'd be sure to check for shorted speaker wires. These
    units if I recall correctly use a STK like hybrid IC output device, and I
    have seen several output failures.

    To reset the protection circut press and hold the Advanced Surround and
    Enter puttons simultaneously for at least 2 seconds. If the unit resets,
    then goes back into the shutdown mode, you are most likely dealing with a
    bad output IC.

    Well, I don't have those buttons (Adv. Surround & Enter). I have:
    Class, Memory, Band, MPX, Speakers, Midnight Station - & +, Tuning - &
    +, Direct, Monitor, Digital NR, DSP Mode, Signal Select, Dolby/DTS, and

    I've tried a few random buttons while powering up, no luck.

    I'll have a look and see if I've got a manual for it, but don't hold your
    breath ...

    I appreciate you taking a look. I'm kinda tight on funding atm, and my
    current stereo died on me -- if I could get this one working, that
    would be amazingly good luck. It's got video and optical ins, both
    features I really needed and my old stereo didn't have 'em. Because I'm
    running audio from my pc, I get a lot of "power hum" using analog
    lines, so the optical is virtually a necessity.

    Finally got round to checking through the manuals, but haven't got one for
    that model - sorry.
