I purchased this receiver as a backup for when my other receiver got sick. It did and I hooked this one up but couldn't get it to show any kind of a display and was guessing in the dark as to what was happening. The instructions showed to push the 'main menu' on the receiver and I never found a menu button of any kind on either the receiver nor the remote. Anyway, do you work on them? This was fresh out of the box and all I could hear was the subwoofer with, again, no display. If you don't work on them could you tell me who in America does, please? I live in Arkansas and would like to know where the closest repair center would be from here. Thank you for your time and any trouble this may cause you.

Are there interior fuses other than the F8AL250V fuse at the power plug? I plugged a record player into the phono hook-up using RCA wires and the eternal speakers crackled very loudly, I then heard a pop then the smell of of burning/melting or possibly a fuse blowing... It now shows PROTECT on the display screen.
When connecting an external audio source. The volume control should always be at the lowest to prevent a sudden blast of sound. Please check your warranty options and send the unit for repair
Watts per channel?
I recently bought this Pyle Pt796bt amplifier/receiver and it does seem to retain its memory when you power off and on. If I adjust levels such as center channel, surround channels, subwoofer level etc, when I power it down and then power it up again, these values default to its factory settings. How can I retain my settings without having to do it everytime I power up?
