Harmon/Kardon PM655 Integrated Amplifier that takes an excessive amount of time to warm up? Can it be repaired? Answered

Seems the longer it sits unused the longer it takes to come on.


it probably takes time to charge capacitor(s)

so every time you turn it off, it slowly starts discharging the capacitor

there is no problem with that feature.... my Pioneer vsx-d711 does that too
- it takes a couple seconds for it to turn on

If my TV is off for more than 10 seconds, it takes 15 to turn on.

It's 6 months old...
