Yamaha RX-V1000

Today my RX-V1000 won’t power up. I’m going to tinker around and see if I can get it going again but my skills I’m this area are very limited. If I can’t get it working is it worth paying to fix or should I just get a new receiver? I am leaning towards the latter, especially given the lack of HDMI capabilities, but I was wondering if there was any reason to try to keep the old thing working.

I would search the web in case it's gone into power protection mode. There will be reset instructions

It looks like this receiver is 17-18 years old. I'd say that's a very good run. Many receivers bite the dust before then. It's worth trying a reset as mentioned but I'd also agree that a new receiver is a good option. The RX-V1000 sells for about $100 used so it's not worth repairing unless it's something minor and the cost is less than that.
