AVR300 won't stay on!


Standard Member

I re-wired everything putting in my new TV, and now I can't get my AVR 300 to stay on! I turn it on, it stays on for about 3-4 seconds, then shuts off.

I've tried removing all connections except the power, and the same thing happens. It seems to me like it's in some kind of protection mode, shutting itself off after finding something it doesn't like in the start up process.

Anyone have any ideas?


Thank you

Unplugged everything - still no luck.

The store I bought it from said to bring it in and if they can't figure it out they'll send it to ARCAM for repair.

Sounds like I must have done something to make the circuitry go haywire - likely bare speakerwire or spades touching or the like... and I think I did cut power to the unit without while it was in standby...

Oh well. I'll have to live with the old Sony AVR for a while... thanks again for the help!
