storm fried my H&K AVR-65

Any place that can repair this receiver?

It won't come on. It was $1k.

Does it have an easily serviceable fuse that you can check?

You spent $1K on a receiver and didn't have it behind a quality UPS?

I don't see a fuse anywhere on the back.

It was on a UPS.

What kind of UPS are you using? That's unusual for a voltage spike or a brown out to get past the UPS and reach the equipment. They filter spikes and brownouts along with just being a battery backup.

I use a Geek Squad 875 V/A UPS and a APC unit. They have worked great during all the recent storms we've had.

And most UPS have some sort of equipment guarantee. You may want to look into that.

The MOV's in surge protectors wear out and then you lose protection.

You will probably have to take the chassis apart to find it.

if you cant get it fixed yourself, lesson learned and move on, it's time to upgrade. besides, that receiver is 10 years old now!
