Have you checked the scart leads. They are really good at causing these kinds of problem.

You need to do the input assign. The receiver doesn't yet know that you plugged a cable in to one of the Optical ports.

If you have done the above, then the next thing is to check the amp's Mode button. This cycles the input between Optical and analogue audio inputs.

Maybe start with speaker test tones to verify the hardware instead of messing with live audio modes.

BTW: the powered subwoofer is supposed to be driven by the 'Subwoofer' Pre-Out.

What input are you using that allows audio when you select EXT IN AND the other modes? That is a specialized analog input for 5.1 analog equipment ONLY. (Page 32)

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead

Just moved and got mine hooked up last week. Was working great and now I can't get anything. The reassuring "click" I've always heard when I switch between inputs is gone. Anyway enough about my issue, what specifically are you having trouble with?

this fault is very common on denon receivers, especially the later models.

hope this helps?

I cannot access the setup menu on the unit display or via the s-video monitor out -- everything was working fine a few days ago. I have reset micro, unplugged all night, reset again, and still cannot get to the menu in order to correct connections, esp for digital. My problem is on the avr5600 but seems like this happens on many of the denon units
