I am sorry about this issue and would like to assist you! Please try unplugging the receiver for about 10 seconds. If the receiver is plugged into a surge protector please try plugging it directly into the wall. If this does not resolve the issue please send me a PM so that I can further assist you. Thanks!

Found it was not plugged into a surge protector but into a multiple outlet extension cord. Now direct to wall will let you know if it happens again by DM. Thank you.
