Have owned the 2105 receiver for only 4 weeks, pretty happy with purchase. But yesterday I was listening to a rock cd at medium levels in 'stereo', then decided to flick to 'direct' via the remote. The amp immediately cut out, and the on light turned to flashing red. I pressed the standby button, expecting it to reset. There was a small pop sound from within the amp. Now it wont start beyond a couple of seconds of trying to boot up - the green lamp changes to flashing red. I did a power down, double checked (then disconnected) all speaker and input leads, but no go. I don't reckon the amp was being stressed at all when it gave up. There were no stray cable strands at the speaker terminals - I have banana plugs throughout. Speakers tested out ok an another amp. It is now in the local repair shop. But should I have tried another reset trick via the speaker A/B buttons - as I've seen in another thread? Has anyone else experienced this problem in the avr range?
