    Reference my last comment.
    I held down the buttons and tried to reset several times . On the last attempt there was a loud popping noise and a small puff of black smoke.
    It safe to assume the thing is toast .

    I have had the Ceoln10 for 7 over since months now. This happened to twice already. Not sure why. I just unplugged the power for a few minutes and plugged it back again. I had to do this two times, the red light blinked again after the first unplug, then it worked.

    I have an older integrated amp that banks on startup for maybe 2 secs then turns solid and is fine. Is this normal.

    Yep, the reset tip works on my Denon I rescued from the tip. Using a different set of buttons labelled surround located in the same spot.
    Thanks mate!

    I had a Denon AVR-1707 and the man who bought it from me told me it happened to the receiver. I'm telling him about this vídeo. Thanks.

    Even though this is an awfully old video, it helped me fix my receiver. I didn't think about factory resetting it, d'oh. Thanks!

    Hey thanks for sharing. I have a 589 and it’s doing the same thing. Just replaced the 7815 transistor and the two capacitors. Didn’t fix it. I noticed the two transistors you pointed at are on the side of the head sink. Mine has those two plus two on the ends of the heat sink. So now I gotta pull the CB out again and tackle those two transistors. Question though. How does that other CB unplug. I tried for ages to get the two sockets to release and I could not get them separated. As you,know it’s impossible to get the transistors off with the other CB in the way. I don’t want to pull too hard in case I break something. Cheers
