    On the back of this receiver I don't see any preamp RCA's I was talking to someone and they told me to turn it on and see if I hear the relay click, unfortunately I turned it on and didn't hear the relay at all.So I must have bigger issues.

    I can't remember off the top of my head if this amp even had relays to kick on at start up but I can be wrong.

    But as mentioned, check the PRE-AMP out and MAIN IN jumpers on the back. It may not have any hooked up and you can just use a pair of RCA cables to connect it properly. Or, the receiver may
    have a switch on the back for connected pre amp and main in as well.

    No, the 9340 has no "pre-out", "main-in" RCAs. If the relay's not clicking, the usual suspects are DC at the speaker outputs, or an issue with your power supply. Without knowing your level of expertise regarding repairs and if you're going to dive into this yourself, I'd suggest building a DBT (Dim Bulb Tester). One can be built in a 2 gang box. A DBT will let you know if there's a short somewhere and if so, it'll protect the issue from cascading. You're also going to need a DMM (digital multimeter) and a service manual for the unit.

    If you decide that this repair is out of your area of expertise and would rather have a competent tech look at it, you can solicit this forum for suggestions of techs in your part of the country/world. If however you DO decide to tackle this . . . don't be in a hurry. :)
