    Home stereo automatically cutting off?

    I have a Sharp receiver that has worked forever but just decides to cut off as soon as I turn it on now...anybody have any input on what might be wrong with it?

    How long is forever?

    Could need replacement of caps, or just bought the farm because of low-quality soldering work or PCB traces...

    See that's the thing, I honestly can't tell. I mean I've had this thing forever and I'm not sure why I had it wired the way I did but I had both speaker's (rated @ 6ohm's) wired in series to only one channel on the back of the receiver but I'm not sure if that would be the cause, because like I said, it's worked like that forever.

    Loud, how much for your onkyo?

    Two 6 ohm svc speakers wired in parallel = a 3 ohm load, correct?

    Na I was just asking that question because I gave up on the receiver. I got extremely bored tonight and pulled a 250watt power supply out of my old desktop, wired it up to a 4 channel amp I had, and used the speakers from my old receiver. Just got confused because each speaker box (I have two) has a 6ohm tweeter and a 6ohm mid-bass driver. So I was thinking that I was putting a 3ohm load on each channel. Then again, I have no idea I think I might have over thought it all lol. Please correct me if I'm wrong...
