I was watching TV last night when I heard a "thump", guessed it was someone shutting a car door outside. Five minutes later I heard it again but louder, this time I went to look and I found my beolab penta 1s powered on but no display in the centre. I then noticed the standby light on the Beomaster was off. Initially it wouldn't power on and then it did, just once. It's now dead, and does not come on by remote or input or front panel.

 

Guidance, best guesses welcome.

This may or may not be relevant but I have also had an irritating crackle in both speakers, independent of volume for many months but hadn't got around to investigating. Could this be something on its way out which has finally gone.

 

Odd that it came back to life just once last night.

Open it up and see if something looks suspect - remember to disconnect it from mains.

If you are lucky, it could just be a blown fuse. Otherwise, I would suspect capacitors on the power board first.

A blown fuse would be lovely but it came back on briefly and fuses, once blown, tend not recover.
