    I have a three year old kenwood receiver that suddenly for no reason won't power on. I'm not too sad because now the wife will let me upgrade. I have a surge protector, but for the recent rash of thunder storms I have just been unplugging everything until its over. Could this plugging in and unplugging have damaged it? What other electrical things do you guys know of that could damage a reciever? Power surges? Do receivers have fuses that I could just replace? It's old, but I don't want to spend a lot for a quick, cheap repair that i could do myself. It is well taken care of and is well ventilated. I'm at a loss. Anybody?

    So, no lights at all?

    I'd pop the hood and make sure that all of the fuses look good before tossing it.

    Maybe a local repair shop can diagnose the problem for $25, then give you an estimate.

    Good Luck!

    agreed with colin.

    open it up (unplug it first!) and take a look.

    somewhere near the power-supply (or where the cord runs into the back) you should see a small fuse. check it out and see if it's blown.

    heck...it's worth a shot...
