I got the call from my kids saying the Denon turns on then turns off and the little red power light starts to blink. When I got home the same thing. The small red light above the power switch is usually always on. But when the reciever starts to turn on it goes throught its normal startup of clicks and everything lights up and right when the sound usually starts to come out of the speakers the reciever shuts off and the light starts to blink. When you press the power switch it just stops the blinking light and it goes back to solid and the whole process starts over. I thought it was the surge protector so I plugged it in different outlets over the house same result. I could not find anything in the manuel about the blinking light but nothing. I thought maybe it was overheating so I checked for that but nothing. Any help would be great I can't afford a new reciever and the money I spent on this one Iexpected it to last 20 years.
