Evening, I hope someone can help....... Have suddenly started to suffer from a problem with an AVR250. It has suddenly decided not to output any sound from any source. I've checked and triple checked all the inputs.outputs and everything is fine. It started yesterday when I changed input form Tuner to PVR then the sound died. The relay(?) sounded like it was flipping over but nothing came out. I worried, panicked and checked every input and source, as any rational owner would, but to no joy. I left it off approx 2 hours then tried again. No sound appeared from any input, until I pressed the 'direct' button 'on and 'off' a couple of times, this seemed to free the problem and sound resumed on all sources . But, I'm afraid to say, we've had nothing at all today . Has anyone else had this problem ? If so any help would be fantastic. I've had to resort to digging the old Alpha 8 amp out of storage to facilitate music and tele. Many thanks in advance and I'll be 'phoning my dealer first thing tomorrow. Cheers Dickster.
