    Watching TV the other night when the amp decided to crackle, pop and then emit a lightening type light from underneath. It then carried on as normal!

    I checked the amp and all the connections seem fine, I then did a speaker test and the Rear Left seems to have stopped working.

    Has this ever happend to anyone? If it has whats wrong?

    As usual this happened 18 months after I purchased it, so out of warranty. :thumbsdow

    Looks like a new amp is on the cards im afraid. Have you got household insurance as you might be able to make a claim under it.
