I'll try to fix it. Hammer didn't work, so I'm thinking it must be electrical. Pesky fluxing Mylar capacitating diodes I'm sure...
Some of my handy work with the laminator at work.
Nice work

Technically, it is not a hammer, it is a fine adjusting tool.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

If it is under warranty repair thats a no brainer because it is probably newer tech and up to date. If it had sentimental value or was something I could use for any system susch as an amplifier I would have a pro fix it unless the cost of repair would be as much or more than buying new.

Onkyo TX-NR809 HT receiver
HPS-4000,SR-70, John Allen, Klipsch Heresy, Speakers for L.C.R.
QSC GX-5 power amp for L+R mains
Chase Home Theater PRO-10's for surrounds
Behringer EP 4000 pro amp for the Danley DTS-10 tapped horn sub
Oppo BDP-93 universal BD player
Toshiba HD XA2 HD dvd player
Sony VW-VPLPRO1 1080p PJ
Cinema White 1.0 gain 106" fixed frame screen
Dish network with 2 Hoppers and 1 Joey

Unless it is a very simple repair I would send it in if under warranty, if the warranty has expired and I had detailed instructions on how to make the repair I have no problem taking something apart and trying to fix it.

if under warranty send it in only after some trouble shooting first to make sure it's the component that's brock and self unfixable , out of warranty call repair shop and if cost is reasonable send in and or if possible get parts and fix myself .
