    I got my new HK7200....working great, but still VERY NEW
    to it.

    I had the big screen pulled out while setting things up &
    was still tweaking stuff.
    I mention to my GF that I eill be able to put it back soon.

    I go to the dentist, come back & she had shoved tv back
    to normal spot.....now no sound at all through receiver.
    Still worksd through big screen, but just flashes
    L & R on the speaker selector......


    I want to cry..............


    What do I do.

    Cam,

    It sounds to me like she pulled off some connection(s) when moving the TV back into place. I think you gotta' pull the TV back out and see what wires are underneath it, and not plugged into the receiver.

    Hey Robb......before i posted, I pulled the tv back out & checked everything....I get sound from DVD to TV, but not
    DVD to receiver.....heck, not counting spreakers, there are only 4 wires plugged into the receiver & only one comes
    from the DVD player. [​IMG]

    Cam,

    If it's a toslink cable you still may want to check that it hasn't come loose. After that, run through the settings on the receiver again. I'm sure it's something simple. Receivers definitely top the list of overly complicated pieces of gear.

    Cam,

    I think we are all overlooking the fundamental problem here. And that is making sure the GF keeps her mits off your gear!
