Question about Denon AVR-3802 Receiver
I need to setup for 2 zone opeeration and the setup screen will not appear. I tried to reset the microprocessor and it did not work, it would not start up with the buttons held. Please help.
Those are not compatible speakers for this unit. The Denon receiver does not have any speaker outputs for that type of speaker.
The Denon speaker outputs are full range outputs. Your speakers are not designed for that, they need an amplifier that has seperate outputs for the highs and lows.
By using these speakers you will probably damage them and they will not sound very good as well. The tweeters will end up fried and it is also likely that if one of the speakers goes bad, it will blow one of the channels in the amplifier.
If you really want to do it anyways, and don't say I didn't warn you, you could connect them using the "A" and "B" speaker outputs. Connect the woofers on one set, lets say "A", and the tweeters on the other, lets say "B". Right channel "A" would be the woofer and right channel "B" would be the tweeter for one speaker.
When listening to the unit you would need to engage both the "A" and "B" speaker to hear anything from both speakers, there are buttons on the display for the speakers marked "A" and "B" and in the display you would see little icons that light up when the speakers are engaged.
I can not stress it to you enough that this is not a good idea to use these speakers with this type of receiver. Do this at your own risk and be prepared to pay about $150 to $200 for the repair bill after the amp blows a channel.

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3802 Problem
Check that your speaker cables are not touching each other at the amp end and also at the speakers as this will cause the amp to shut down.
hope this helps.

I had this same experience and after hours of attepts to fix it (including the suggestions on this site) I found that the company that installed and set up my system literally disabled the "set up" on the remote so that it could not be changed. To fix this (and/or confirm that this may be your problem) reference page 39, "all reset functions" to reset your remote back to factory settings. As soon as I did this and hit "set-up" -- the set up menu popped up and worked appropriately. Hope this works for you!

Are you connected with video cables to a tv or "monitor" this is more than likely were the setup is visible for speaker configuration, input assignment etc, most denon receivers work this way so I would suspect you need to re-check the video connection until a set-up picture appears.

Was it put into standy from the remote control and then just turned off at the wall? This can be a common cause, as it will be stuck in standby
