Receiver sometimes goes into protect mode for unknown reason

Summary: When the receiver works I like it but Starting about six months after getting the receiver I have had it go into protect mode (red flashing power button) about 50% of the time I try to start it up. I have tried a few different approaches to fix the problem but none have worked. It sounds like I have to take it to a repair shop now which may or may not be worth while. Just wanted to warn that the Denon receives seem to have reliability issues.
Don't order refurb from onsale.com (sold through amazon)

Summary: I needed a simple receiver for a secondary TV room. I got a refurb AVR1312 from amazon, sold by onsale.com. After a couple of days the device stopped outputting any sound to speakers or headphones. I requested a return from Amazon, who directed me to onsale support, who directed me to Denon support, who told me that since onsale.com is not an authorized Denon reseller I'm SOL on Denon's 1 year warranty, and they advised me to return it to onsale.com.
Summary: musste zurückgeschickt werden aufgrund ständigem Anspringen der Endstufenschutzschaltung,Ansonsten leicht zu bedienendes Gerät mit guter Verarbeitung und einfacher Fernbedienung - Schade drum!
