This afternoon, I discovered my CT-17 lit-up like a Christmas tree. Every input/output LED was on, and the volume knob was rotated full-up, and its LED was also red. This was, of course, odd, since the unit is normally in standby mode, with only the red light in the upper-left on.
I rotated the volume knob back to full-down, but it immediately rotated itself back to full-on. I tried using the remote to power the unit on/off, but the unit wouldn't respond to the remote (yes, fresh batteries). So, I manually power-cycled the unit. When it came back on, the LEDs were still lit, and the volume knob was red and rotated itself back to full-up.
I've unplugged it, and removed it from my system, hoping that all it might need is to cool off. It was pretty warm, for some reason.
Can anyone give me any hope that my trusty CT-17 hasn't died? I've had it since it was new, and it's been a great match to my Kenwood Basic M2A amp.
