Question about Denon AVR-1602 Receiver

1 Answer

No sound from optical or coax digital inputs

Back ground:
Had system for many years with no problem. Just got a Topfield PVR and decided to use the coax digital input for the audio (as it was not being used). Connected it up and assigned coax to spare channel on denon 1602. No Sound.

Fault finding:

  • Checked that coax output on Topfield was working - it was.
  • Tried a different spare channel on Receiver - no sound.
  • Tried an already used channel (DVD) with coax input - no sound.
  • Changed DVD input back to optical and now it will not work.
  • Reset the microprocessor as detailed in manual - this is where it gets interesting. The default setting both the optical and coax worked with the default setting (ie optical assigned to the TV input and the coax assigned to the DVD input). However the sound out was only Dolby Pro-logic, not DTS or Dolby digital.
Any help wold be appreciated.

You have to use the system setting using the remote and turn on the inputs you want to use. Hope this helps.

No sound on coax audio input from HDTV


Check your settings on your tv. You may have to turn off the internal tv speakers in the setup menu in order to get any audio output from the jacks on the back.

I have the onkyo tx sr502, onkyo dv sp402e with the speakers..etc.. i'm trying to set up the whole thing to a normal television. that is, what cables go from what components, out/inputs..etc..and which...


Hi troy my names Josh i would be glad to be able to help you with your setup. First things first some people have a preference with they way they like things and for one do myself. I set up and intstalled my home theatre. I have receiver much like yours. On the back of your reciever you should have multiple inputs of coarse some for sound some for video. Your sound inputs would include digital optical, digital coax, standard analog which of coarse is the red and white RCA inputs and then a multi in which i doubt you have. So lets start simple If you have satalite or some form of cable i would assume you have your reciever box feeding a signal to your tv and the same for your DVD. I would recommend for your sat. that you connect your picture and sound strait to the tv rather it be component video or s video or standard video source or connect then for your sound strait analog to your tv thats just Red and White RCAs which will give you your sound to your tv. Repeat the same for your DVD depending on the kind of inputs and number of inputs you have on your TV. Now for the sound to your reciever. I ran digital sound from both my DVD and my Satilite to the reciever which means on the back of your recievers providing you have a similar configuration you would look for a plug on your dvd player that says optical thats your digital to run sound to your onkyo and the same for your sat or cable if you have a box look for either digital optical or a single digtal coax output that will also be ran to the onkyo for sound. You should only have two cables running to the onkyo one fiber optic from your dvd to the onkyo and one digital coax or fiber optic to your onkyo depending on the number of those inputs you have on the back of the onkyo you can run it how ever you want.

NAD T743: The digital channels stop working after a short time.


Hmm, sounds similar to my problem. Analog input and FM seems to work but all coax/opto input are dead ( for me there isn't a buzz).
Have you, fredrik648, solved your problem?
Anyone with ideas what to do?

Thanks

Hooking up multiple components to HTR 6030


Once you have installed all the cables to the system, you will need to go in to the Yamaha's system settings (see owner's manual) and assign the audio inputs accordingly. The DVD input will need to be set to the optical input # you have selected. Optical and digital coax are not preset in most cases. Once you get to the input selection assign the digital # for DVD and then exit out. You should begin to hear the audio immediately. If not you missed a step. I do this for a living and every unit has its own routine you need to learn.  Enjoy the system Rob

Having trouble connecting my blue ray and tv to my yamaha receive and surround system


Must be an HDMI ?

If yes use the HDMI DVD input on your receiver ( from the Blue Ray using a HDMI cable )
Then use an HDMI cable from receiver to TV.

That should work for image. Sound would only work directly from TV, to have sound on receiver:

Use either optical or coax cable to direct digital sound from blueray to receiver.
Best is optic, depends on blueray or cable availability ... Coax = RCA cables @ 75 Ohms, use of a spare RGB would work find (using only one of three color available let's say using Red only) or try with any RCA cable.

direct cable from blueray to receiver ( Digital inputs at far left looking back of receiver num 7 in owner manual, choose DVD )

If no sound from receiver check Audio select from option menu ( set to auto )

Any specific question about this procedure ?

or guess you already found out,

Enjoy :-)

No sound fom optical input


Do you have your TV hooked up, so you can see the AVR-4800 system menu on its screen (if not, see the manual). You need to go down to the digital input menu item where you associate each component with its input source, whether it is coax, optical 1, optical 2, ..., etc.

Connecting new tv to DRA-685


you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).

Sound from digital input(s cut out


You are probably correct. The input switcher IC or the power supply feeding the Optical switcher is most likly got a problem. The cost to diagnoise a problem like this could cost you with a repair, more then you could most likly get a new reciver for. Its a shame of all the great technology that gets thrown aweay in the dumps every day. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread.
