Question about Denon AVR-1706 Receiver

1 Answer

No Power Hi - I have bought a brand new AVR 1706 and not sure if the system is working properly or not - so before I return it , appreciate if someone could clarify -- with nothing (no input/output ) connected to the receiver, what should the standby lights (around the On/Standby) switch be doing.. when I switch the system, and press the ON button ..the RED light comes on..when I press the RED button , a GREEN light (which is normal)comes on ..the only problem is that GREEN light flashes 3-4 times and then the changes to RED again ie the system returns to STANDBY mode. IS that normal? The system exhibits the same behaviour with speakers (not sure of their impedence) and ipod connected. Pls pls..someone help and suggest a remedy before I hand the system back . PS I have tried re-setting the micro processor too , asper the manual - and have had no luck

Re: No Power

I mwas gonna suggest that you need the speakers attached but you stated later that it did the same thing with the speakers attached. The unit switching off after it checks its self is NOT a normal thing. TAKE IT BACK BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!! GOOD lUCK

My denon avr-1706 is going into protection mode immediately after turning on. whats the problem?

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.

Denon avr-1706 receiver just shuts off

This sounds like the amps protector circuit has been activated due to thermal overload. switch it off for an hour or more to let it cool down, make sure your spkrs are connected properly, don't parallel. Try using a fan on the unit to get that heat away. Get a techie friend to give the insides a once over, and clear away any dust that has built up.

hope this is of some help,
Cheers Kimbo.

Denon AVR-1706 Left Front and Rear speakers stopped working. Any suggestions?

go into the settings menu and do a sound test using the recievers pink noise tester to test each speaker connected, if while doing this test you still get no sound from those two speakers check connections, make sure speakers are not blown.
if speakers and connections are good then the reciever needs repair

Humming sound (speakers)when HK AVR is powered up.

In my case the buzz was only on front speakers. There are 3 capasitors (100uF/25V) very close to the cooling ribs of 3 regulators in the power supply. In my case the C922 was bad.

1706 Red ring of death

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.
