Purchased denon AVR-689 in 2009 worked fine until the other night while watching tv the receiver started turning itself on and off

Phantom OFF may be a self-protection mechanism. Phantom ON would be a poltergeist or other remote control command from somewhere.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

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.

My left ear phone isn't working and I just bought them 30 minutes ago

The earphones you purchased have a factory defect. Explain your problem to the store that sold it to you with proof of purchase and they will more than likely give you another pair of earphones or a refund.

How can I use my Marantz 4070, Quadro Integrated Amplifier as an amp for guitar, microfons and so on?

you need to buy a small mixer like the 4 channel beringer (about 90 bucks) you would plug its output into the inpur of your Marantz and will then be using it as a power amp. It should work great and the little berringer even has phantom power I believe.

When i plug in my condenser, and the phantom power is on, none of the pan knobs are turned left or right, but for some reason when i talk into the mic, it is panned to the left. and when i record it does...

There is not enough information to go on here. A condenser mic is usually connected via XLR connections and receivers done have thaty type of input. Where is the phantom power coming from. Perhaps the wiring of hte XLR is incorrect for the equipment being used. (There are 2 standard connection styles). Can you update this with the equipment being used and how it is connected?

My RX-V490 Amp. has no audio from Centre speaker.

Is your center mode set to "Phantom" instead of "Normal" or "Wide"? That would split the mono Center channel program and mix it equally with the programs for both front speakers so your brain would believe it's in the center.
