    I went to play ome music on my system today, as I do every morning, and no sound came out. I verified the following:
    All components connected(check)
    Speakers turned on from reciever(check)
    Speakers connected(check)
    Tried all volumes with not even a light hiss near max volume in stereo or surround.
    I can't even hear any static when I try to tune into AM/FM stations.

    The menus and everything work fine though and all my settings have not changed.

    I believe the amp is dead. Is there anything else I should do before I contact futureshop? I do have an extended warranty on it. Are they more likely to repair or replace it? If they did replace it, would this be a good time to upgrade the reciever since I could sell the replacement at a good price and then throw a few hundred dollars on top of that towards a new one?

    Did you check the rear of the receiver for any reset buttons of fuses? It is very unlikely that the amp just died.

    Luckily it turned out to be a false alarm. The amp started working when I unplugged for a while then plugged it in. Not sure what exactly happened, but I'm pretty relieved.
