20 Most Recent Denon AVR-1706 Receiver Questions & Answers


try plugging in headphones and unplugging them. the headphone jacks have a tendency to have a shorted contact in them that cause the unit to think there are headphone plugged in all the time. Only true fix is to replace the headphone jack, but pluggin and unplugging can temporarily clean the fault usually.

Check all your speaker connections to make sure none have shorted out.
It appears the protector circuit is being activated upon startup. cut the power altogether to the unit before checking it.

Continuously stressing it with loud volume has succeeded in making an intermittent problem int a solid one.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

It's an RC-1000.

A simple web search for it found this...

There are probably others. Cruise eBay once in awhile, usually cheaper.

What's "too loud"?

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Hello

An audio/video with an HDMI 1.3 cable only travels one way from the AVR to the TV so you won't get any audio with an HDMI cable connected only to the Monitor Out jack. In order to get audio to the AVR from the TV (when there is no cable/sat box involved), you would connect an optical cable from the TV's optical out to OPT1 on the AVR. The default for the TV input source is OPT1 so you should be good to go.

Try the TV button on the back of the remote as well. If neither works correctly, then you might want to Reset the microprocessor. Also try turning HDMI-CEC on the TV to OFF.

GOODLUCK

Check the "Input mode" on the receiver for DVD input. Make sure the input mode is set to "Auto" if you still have a problem, post a reply and I can help you further

hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Its usually not a fault that you will see unless somethings burnt up. This is solid state electronics and you dont see this stuff go bad. But in the meantime try disconnecting the speakers and see if it still goes into shutdown and at the same time have a dc multimeter attached to the speaker outputs. If the unit comes on and you dont see any DC at all or very very little B+ on both speaker terminal sets then you may have a defective speaker. If you do see dc then thats why the protections comming on so you dont blow out your speakers. If you dont have any equipment or dont have any electronics experience I would then take the unit to a repair person for an estimate. Good Luck

Depends on your computer's sound capabilities. At a minimum you could use its analog headphone and microphone jacks as Output and Input, respectively and run them to a Tape loop on the receiver.

If you have compatible digital audio ports on your PC, conenct them to their respective corresponding outs and ins on the Receiver.

You either have an overloaded output or a shorted powersupply. If you have verified that your connections are not the cause then the problem is internal and will require service from a trained technician. Switching power supplies are notorious for going bad. Two of the main components are the FETs used for switching and the PWM generator.
