Has anyone ever heard of a static discharge severely affecting a receiver? I have the Onkyo TX-SR601 receiver and in the winter when it is dry and the static is "flying" from my fingers I have a problem. I didn't thing much of it at first but this is the 3rd or 4th time this has happened now. I walk over to get a remote, dvd, tape etc. from my component rack and a blue spark hits from my finger to the metal rack and shuts off the volume of the Onkyo. I have to shut the receiver down and turn it on again to get the sound back. Is this going to hurt my equipment? Is there an easy fix? I never had this problem before with other components.
