New home theater receiver soon?

Anyone ever have this problem before?
I have a 5.1 Onkyo home theater receiver, it has to be about 7-8 yrs old now. Was about $500 new. Still sounds great and fits all my needs. However as of late the left front main channel is acting up. Sometimes all the other channels work fine but this one does not start up. To get it to go back on I simply turn up the volume to about 40 and it kicks in and I can lower the volume and it will remain on. Typically happens on start up so far, not all the time either. Amp sound like it is going? already checked all connections including the speaker wires.
Knowing me I will probably wait until the volume up trick stops working but was just wondering if this is typical of a dying amp.

swap the speakers and ensure its your amp that's the problem.

Does it happen on every input? After the speaker swap, that would be the next thing I check. Sounds like the receiver, but you gotta be sure before dropping the coin on a new one.

I have an old Sony thats similar. When you first turn it on, it's fine. Then as soon as you touch the volume, really loud static just comes out of one or two channels. Turn it off and back on. It's fine. Happens mostly in the winter.

Swapped speakers, same thing. I'll deal with it until I have some money burning a hole in my pocket. Not that mad, I had this thing forever and it got tons of use.

If it's 7-8 years old, I assume it's Dolby Pro Logic and not a digital amp?

Huge, huge difference between Pro Logic and current formats. I couldn't believe the improvement moving to a modern amp. I'm betting even a cheap one would sound better than an 8 year old Pro Logic amp.
