Did you try this....

In the event of a power outage, the RV-8 will display a BROWN
OUT!! PRESS STANDBY message. To turn the unit on, use the
STANDBY button. For more information, see “POWER
MANAGEMENT” on page 3-3....

POWER MANAGEMENT ON, OFF

"Setup" >> "Power Management"

Opens the POWER MANAGEMENT menu, which is used to automatically
put the RV-8 into standby mode during brownouts.
When set to ON, the RV-8 detects low voltage levels or a momentary
loss of power and puts the device in standby mode. In the event of a
power brown out, the RV-8 will display a BROWN OUT!! PRESS
STANDBY message. To turn the unit back on, use the front panel
STANDYBY button.

When set to OFF, the RV-8 will attempt to function during a
momentary power loss, however software settings may become
corrupt and need to be reset.
When the RV-8 is in standby mode, pressing the button turns the
unit on and activates all zones that were active in the previous
operating session.

The RV-8 does not power on.
1. Make sure the rear-panel power switch is set to the | (“on”)
position.
2. Attempt to power on the RV-8 with the front-panel Standby
button and remote control On button.
3. Examine the power cord to ensure a good connection between
the rear-panel AC input connector and the wall outlet.
4. Check the electrical circuit and breaker.

I have access to the Lexicon service guys, but will need a bit more info to assist in tracking this down.

1) Have you noticed any pattern to when the unit fails. In other words, does it tend to fail more readily after being on for a while, or is it consistant in behavior regardless of time?

2) Does the volume level of the unit change the total time before failure?

3) If you uinplug the unit for 1/2 and try using it, does the behavior change?

Please update this with the answers and also, if you could post what has already been done by the service center, that would help as well.
At this point, I would be suspicious of hte 5V line and/or the microprocessor internal controls. I'll research this a bit and try to get you more details as well.

Thanks,
Dan

It sounds like a source slecton issue. Try the following and if that does not help I would start with a simple stereo setup and source and work up from there.

The RV-8 is powered on, but there is no audio.
1. Make sure volume level is audible. Volume level can be
increased with the front-panel volume knob or the remote
control VOL �� and �� buttons.
2. Make sure audio has not been muted. The message “MUTE
ON” or “FULL MUTE ON” will appear in the on-screen and
front-panel displays when audio has been muted. To deactivate
mute, press the Mute button or adjust the volume level.
3. Check the INPUT SETUP menu DIGITAL IN and ANALOG IN
parameters to ensure the appropriate audio connector is assigned
to the selected input.
4. Make sure the RV-8 is receiving an audio signal. To do this,
follow the instructions that begin on page 2-29 to open the
STATUS menu for the current input source. Hint: (Use the "STAT2" Button on the remote.)

I believe this unit employs an optical sensor to detect tape end.
Clean this off to. It looks like a transparent post positioned along the tape path. Reset the counter to zero and fast forward tape to end. Rewind, and try to play tape as normal

Hi, there
Since your unit has a CD player, the problem with both the turntable and cassette deck is probably due to the rubber belts that turn both mechanisms losing elasticity or have broken over time (or in the worst case scenario, turned to goo). I don't know your model manufacturer, but turntables often have a clip, or some sort of apparatus, that you can remove to lift the turntable platter up and off. If you can do that, you will be able to see what shape the turntable belt is in. For the cassette deck, more intricate disassembly is required. Replacement belts for both can often be found on eBay or other online sources.I found a video for an ion turntable that might have a similar belt system.

Hello Billy, obviously your STR-K502P, has problems in the main power supply, control you have to remove the cover and look for a fuse indicated as; F901 FUSE (6.3Amp / 125V) and fix it is burned, if so, before replacing it, you would have to get a lamp holder and an incandescent lamp of 200 watts, the old lamps that bring filament, and connect the cables of the holder lamp to the ends of the fuse holder, the lamp replaces the fuse (serial lamp), you connect the STR-K502P to the power network and turn it on, if the lamp turns on completely and stays that way, it is very likely that there are components damaged and are generating a short circuit, in this case I suggest you look for a specialized technical service
If, on the other hand, the lamp is turned on and off or the intensity of the initial flash is reduced, this would give a guideline that there is possibly no short circuit, you can test the operation of the STR-K502P in this situation, if you can hear it, then replace it the fuse, its value is 6.3 Ampere / 125Volts
Once this is done, do not use the STR-K502P, without first checking all the cables and connections of the speakers, corroborating that you do not have any short circuit in them
I hope you can solve it

Hola Billy, evidentemente tu STR-K502P, tiene problemas en la fuente de alimentaci?n principal,controla tienes que sacar la tapa y buscar un fusible indicado como; F901 FUSE de (6.3Amp/125V) y f?jate se esta quemado, de ser as?, antes de reemplazarlo, tendr?as que conseguir un porta lamparas y una lampara incandescente de 200 watts, las viejas lamparas que traen filamento, y conectar los cables del porta lampara a los extremos del porta fusible, la lampara reemplaza al fusible (lampara serie), conectas el STR-K502P a la red de energ?a y lo enciendes, si la lampara se prende por completo y se queda as?, es muy probable que haya componentes da?ados y est?n generando un cortocircuito, en este caso te sugiero que busques un servicio t?cnico especializado
Si por el contrario, la lampara se prende y se apaga o baja la intensidad del encendido inicial, esto dar?a pauta que posiblemente no hay corto circuito, puedes probar en esta situaci?n el funcionamiento del STR-K502P, si logras que puedas escucharlo, entonces reemplaza el fusible, su valor es 6,3 Amper/ 125Volts
Hecho esto, no utilices el STR-K502P, sin antes controlar todos los cables y conexiones de los parlantes, corroborando que no tengas alg?n cortocircuito en ellos
Espero que lo puedas resolver
