Sonicview 8000 HD Power Problems Two Green led's and an Orange led

Posted by on 1:04 pm in Reviews | 4 comments

My SonicView 8000HD went dead two days ago. There nothing on the menu screen beside a red light blinking anything you press a button on the remote or on the receiver. At this point I was surprise that in less than a year, this expensive receiver was dead. Ouch. I jump to do my research on Google, and I found out that it’s very common problem with them.

Aruba it’s the place to go for a great Caribbean vacation. The island has perfect weather and the people are just wonderful. Steph and I spent 7 days in Aruba for our honeymoon, and I’m glad we decided to go there. We stay in a small place call The Mills, not a very fancy hotel, but on my personal opinion it was the best choice we made. It was walking distance from the high rise hotel, at the beginning of Palm Beach area. The next day we rent a jeep and did some shopping and then the fun began. We went to the California Light...
