Earlier today I sat down to watch "elimidate" that I had TiVo'd a couple of nights ago. I press the button to power on my system and things start to power up, but my RX-Z1 comes on for about 5 seconds and then it shuts off. Naturally, I tried it a few more times, but only ended up with the same results. I consulted the troubleshooting section of the textbook of a manual the unit came with. It listed 4 potential problems that I attempted the fixes for, but I had no luck. The system is not overheated. I even unplugged it and let it cool with a fan on it for an hour and that didn't help. It isn't due to speaker wire shorts because I triple checked everything. Has anyone come across a problem like this? What was the cause, and how much was it to fix? I guess if the problem is terminal, it would be a good reason to upgrade to the RX-Z9. Any help would be appreciated.
