Hi Chris,

Have you checked the amperage output; on other threads about (I think it
is a receiver model) several people have found that when the component

to start, the power supply is still showing sufficient voltage by
measurement but not supplying enough current to start the component.

Can you source a supply of 18 volts and maybe 2amps or so?

Just a suggestion :)
