PIONEER SCLX71 HAS JUST BLOWN UP!!
ARGH!!! I have just been watching 'The Incerdible Hulk' on sky hd and my brand new Pioneer sclx71 av receiver has literally just blown up!! I thought it was a special effect from the film until the the smell hit me and obviously the tv screen went black!!
The receiver is more than well ventilated and was actually cool when I touched it- had only been switched on for about 25 mins! There was a loud bang and a bright flash that came from the top of it (I think) when it occured...great...I've only had it about 3 weeks!
Maybe it was the hulk that decided to do it... "don't make me angry..."
I bought it online from MultiZone Av- hopefully they will have another one to replace it with as everywhere else was out of stock and I think they were the last place I tried that had any left when I bought it about 3 weeks ago!!
