    Spent most of the day setting up new AV gear only to find that my new out of the box Yamaha RXV1400 will not "fire up". As soon as I switch on the unit it immediately reverts back to standby.

    I guess this is the circuit protection kicking in (?) but having checked all connections as "clean" (speaker cables on banana plugs), I am at a loss as to what might be causing this.....

    Retailer closed now until Tuesday, so any help in the meantime would be welcomed:rolleyes:

    No - I stripped back each connection, one at a time, but still the amp cuts out. Any further views - do I have a duff amp?
