Hi I have that model AVR 151. Since last week when I tried to switch on the divice the yellow light is blinging only, divice is not coming to power on mode.&nbsp; Kindly reply with right solution to resolve this issue

Asked by: Prajeesh
Hi Prajeesh. Please try a reset as the first step. Here is how to do it: In standby mode, press and hold the front-panel &quot;Surround Modes&quot; button for at least 5 seconds, until the RESET message appears on the front-panel display. Note: After performing a processor reset, wait at least 1 minute before pressing any source selector buttons. If this solves the issue, all is well. If not, next step is to disconnect everything from your receiver, even the power cord. Then re-connect the power cord, and try to switch the receiver ON again. If it now works, re-connect all your speakers and sources, one at a time, and switch the receiver ON after each one. There is a chance that the problem will suddenly reappear, and then you will know which external device is causing the problem. If it still cannot switch on, it must go to service at a repair center.

Hello.&nbsp; I have the HK151 and the ON / OFF buttons on the remote control do not send the signal to the receiver, even though the selected source&rsquo;s button lights up.&nbsp; What is the problem? Should I get a replacement of the remote?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Please try to press the button &quot;AVR&quot;, before trying to power on/off the receiver with the remote control. This should work. If not, please contact our Customer Support for additional information.

What is the differnce between the AVR 151 and the AVR 151S? Also are there any system updates available for this unit?

Asked by: The Dr
Hi The AVR151S is an upgraded version of the AVR151. Even though it has the same features, the internal components have had upgrades, such as the memory and the processor. The S in AVR151S stands for Spotify, which is the only added feature to the AVR151S. You can now use Spotify Connect on the AVR151S If you are looking for software updates for your AVR151, I would like to advise against installing these, if you do not have any issues with the AVR151. Firmware updates won't add any features, nor will it upgrade the hardware. If you however are experiencing any issues with your AVR151, please contact our Customer Support team, and they will be able to tell you if, for that specific issue, a Firmware update would solve it, or if you may need to have your AVR serviced at an Authorised Service Partner.
