    I've had Sony ES stuff since 1994 and bought the N9000 amp - E9000 controller and S9000 SACD / DVD player a couple of years ago. Unfortunately the N9000 amp packed it in and has the  "red blinking light" issue and the amp is dead.  I'm looking for the "Sony guy" in the Pacific NW to take all 3 components to and have the amp fixed, the controller updated and the CD / DVD player looked at and checked. It all goes into a cabinet that is fan cooled and a real job in getting stuff in and out so, I'm doing everything at one time.

    Any advice on who to take this to?

    It is quite a common problem with the N9000, its usually just a few components that need changing.
    As far as a repairer goes i cant help, but any repairer should be able to assist you

    To add to Mr_Mod's comment, mine had this problem and it was only two resistors (R220 & R221) that needed to be replaced. Most of what I've read about the blinking red light was fixed by replacing them.

    It's an incredibly easy fix (if that's all it is), whoever you bring it to you might advise them about the common problem with those two resistors (R220 & R221).

    I see here that I posted that solution back in July of 2005.

    if you can get them out of your "cooler" i bet you could solder the res. in.. you would feel like Dr. frankenstein and she would be alive by your
    own doing....!!!!

    Thanks very much for the advice - I'm of the opinion to take it to the "expert" " (any guy with a tool box 50 miles from home).
    One more question;

    I've heard that the E9000 is up-datable, know anybody to take that to in the Pacific NW?

    I appreciate you guys taking your time to answer the quuestions.
