Hello and sorry you're having problems. Are you saying there are currently no signs of life at all on the device (power light lit or blinking, etc.)?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no sign of life checked and replaced fuse,plugged into a different socket now and it powered up and this was through a home theatre protection unit that can make safe power/sat/cable/ and lan safe with a lifetime warranty which has now failed on this one connection point.

simple things get overlooked

You lost me. Are you saying when you plug it into another outlet (always the first thing you should try), that it works just fine?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i had to unplug something else as all 8 positions are taken on the home theatre and because everything else worked it got over looked.working and sounding normal plugged into other socket.

Excellent and I'm glad to hear that. With no signs of life the first steps would have been to try another outlet (or bypass the surge protector- as they are prone to failures), or if the issue went beyond that- then the AC fuse inside of the receiver would be checked. I'm glad it was a quick fix. If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click a POSITIVE RATING before you go- as it's how I am credited for my work.
