Marantz AV receiver SR5004.Advice needed
« on: June 29, 2020, 06:45:11 PM »
Good day to everyone.
This receiver's power led flashes once every second when i hit the power switch, and refuses to turn on.
If anyone could help with some advice before i send it in for repairs to HFX systems. Im in the Northern cape and i want to try to prevent sending it with the couriers to JHB. Hfx is also not cheap when it comes to repairs and no one in Kimberley wants to repair it. I have zero experience in this field.
I have disconnected all cables going to the amp besides the power cable and still no luck.
Thank you

No, I'm referring to resetting to factory default.

Standby LED flashing fast or slow?
Anyway, try the factory reset: Switch off the unit. Then hold down Surround, Exit, Memory & Clear buttons all together and then switch on the power.

I tried all of the above no luck but while reading the owner's manual they suggest using the remote to turn it on an it worked.  Wow i am so relieved thank you Andile and Maruis. I hope it stays this way. Thank you guys.

By the sound of things you need to clean the insides of the power button . @Bravick (Gideon) is in Kimberley , ask him if he would service the unit for you .

Glad you are sorted,

On agents, HFX, they arenít always unreasonable. (Depends on what parts needs to be ordered). A friend had sent an older model unit and paid R1600 including new parts.
