The receiver marantz 2238b was on at moderate level when I moved on of the speakers then it just stopped I wonder when I was moving the speaker if the wires touched causing the problem of no power.I h the receiver marantz 2238b was on at moderate level when I moved on of the speakers then it just stopped I wonder when I was moving the speaker if the wires touched causing the problem of no power.I hope I did not blow my marantz.Also to be honest I am very illiterate when it comes to electronics

I have a feeling that what you fear has happened has.
If the wires to a speaker touched together that would have caused a short circuit and an overload. Now it could be that the amp detected this and either blew a fuse or shut the system down. The worst case outcome is that the short blew the main output device.
You can check these things yourself. First unplug the unit from the mains then take the top cover off. Locate where the power goes in. The see if you can see and fuses. You might have to look on the PCB for parts marked "F" in letters and numbers on the board. Also look around for any part that might be damaged. You might even be able to smell it if it burnt up.
Also look at all the parts on the metal heat sink. Inspect them for damage.
Check all your wiring before reconnecting the unit, especially if you have found and eliminated the cause.
If you find small glass fuses in the unit and you replace them and they blow again, then one of the parts on the main amp (heat sink) has shorted and needs to be replaced.
