Ok, So I have seen the so called solutions here which amount only to troubleshooting; 1. shorted speaker wire, 2. wrong speakers, 3. bad ventalation/overheating.
Then the final solution of "get service"
WTF! Just tell us what is burned out so we can cut the chase and know what we are talking about when we go see a tech so we dont get ripped off.
Mine is stuck in protector mode. I have left it unplugged for over a month and it is still stuck. I have tested the fan and it works. I have unplugged all the SONY speakers that it came with from it. Nothing gets it to reset. There has got to be a way.
