    My AV32r SP is starting to behave erratically, it keeps turning itself off and on. Its coming up with error code 5. Doesn't sound too hopeful any ideas?

    regards Kevin

    Error 5 means that the SHARC failed to boot - bad news. However if the unit is turning itself on and off this maybe due to a power supply fault and this in itself is creating the SHARC boot failure. Either way I think it needs some TLC at IAG service.

    Thanks for the reply, the big question is it worth repairing or should I look elsewhere as IAG/Tag are not exactly filling me with confidence and my AV32r is the basic model. Any thoughts?
    Regards Kevin

    One option would be to buy new from HiFi Bitz or Sevenoaks Brighton
