    If the unit still does this with the speakers disconnected it needs
    repaired.
    There is more likely a failure in one of the audio output channels that
    needs troubleshot and repaired.

    Repairable by you? If you have the equipment and knowledge required to
    safely and accurately troubleshoot the failures in circuit and then replace
    the offending parts.

  3. The symptoms you describe do not indicate to me that you are likely to be
    able to repair this yourself.

    Either get it to a competent shop, or you may just consider a new receiver -
    yours is still a "mid-fi" model - a newer one would have the latest
    features.
