Odd problem with my A/V receiver

I currently have a Sony STRDG910 as one of the A/V receivers in my house running my home theatre setup. I've had it for 5 years, but I think the model is about 6-7 years old by now.

Everything was working fine (although I was always a little underhwhelmed by its surround sound output) until last night. I shut the TV off, then decided to turn it back on again, and the A/V unit wouldn't come back on. Not with the remote, or by pressing the button directly on the unit. I unplugged it, and plugged it into another location on the power bar, and it came on and worked fine, but then when it was shut off again, it wouldn't turn on again. So I plugged it in directly to the wall, and same thing, would turn on one time, but when shut off won't turn back on.

Any idea what is going on? I've ordered another receiver (this Yamaha RX-V571BL as a replacement, as I'm fine with doing an upgrade on 5-7 year old electronics, but just curious what my issue might be?

Oh, and any thoughts on what I bought as a replacement?

Re: Odd problem with my A/V receiver

Sounds like the power supply is dying. Which has got to be over 50% of all electronics deaths.

Generally, I would say Yamaha > Sony by quite a bit. But I haven't happened to listen to either of those units.
