    Hi all,

    I have owned a Denon AVR 1610 for the last 5 years or so, it has been great.

    Unfortunately as of last Sunday, it won't power on any more. There is no red light around the power button, nothing to indicate any power is getting to the Amp.

    I have tried:

    1. Swapping the power cord to one that I know works.
    2. Taking the cover off and checking the power connections, and the fuse on the power board.
    3. Spraying compressed air to get rid of surface dust around the power board.
    4. Resetting the microprocessor as per the manual instructions (this was a long shot).

    None of these things have had any effect - the fuse is perfectly intact.

    I guess Im just looking to see what my options are from here.

    Would the unit be economical to get repaired? If not, should I just go out and replace it?

    I suspect since it only cost me just over £200, labour costs alone would probably make it not worth repairing.

    Would it be worth anything in its current state?

    If it does turn out replacement is the best course of action, I won't be too disappointed as I did not pay much for it, and it has been a fantastic unit over the last 5 years.

    Many thanks for any advice.
