Re: No radio

Techman is right. If you are keen about listening to Radio broadcasts, and are happy with the quality of sound from the Denon, I suggest you buy a sepaerate Radio Reciever, and feed the output signal into the Denon AUX inputs. You will again be able to listen to your fav stations at a cost less trhan the repair of the Denon.

Re: No radio

The front end is bad on this reicever. Your going to need special equipment to trouble shoot this problem, as Its all RF. It is most likly not worth repairing as a shop will most likly charge you more then its worth

I have an old Denon stereo receiver DRA - 565 RD. Do you know how I can connect my iPhone to the receiver to play music from my iPhone?

You need a 3,5mm male stereo connector to RCA male jacks (see attached image). Plug the 3.5mm jack to your iPhone and the RCA jacks (red & white or red & black) to your Denon Receiver's CD in or Tape 1 or 2 PB (at the rear of the unit). Then select the input where you plugged the RCA to (front of receiver: CD / Tape-2 / Tape-1). Hope this will help. 25303676-z0ul41frrnrex4ege2epffps-1-0.jpg

My Denon Stereo Receiver (DRA-345R) (quite an old model but has worked perfectly up until now) has a very static reception on AM. FM is fine. It started when I had my DirecTV upgraded with a Genie (whole...

it's obviously getting interferance fronm that whole house broadcast unit (not abnormal!) best and only thing you can do is to move the stereo to a place where you can get the MOST am stations the loop ant. is exactly what it says it is a loop of wire with two ends..both ends connect to the ant. input on the back of the unit..however if that whole house broadcast unit is the devil then an ant. no matter what or how it's made will only recieve more static not built to reject static! so you've got to move it unfortunately is a totally different band obviously fm isn't being affected by that whole home broadcast're lucky! on that count

Blows fuse

It is most likely the audio output semiconductors have shored, check all speaker wires for shorts, if okay! I suggest a professional to assess the situation.

FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...

If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

My Denon Audio precision am fm DRa 435R Reciever will not stay on station very long. After about 30 or sometimes 45 minutes it get off station. I have it set to a local FM Station, 97.9 and it plays good...

OK,this is a fairly common problem with digital tuners, I get them from time to time in my shop, you see, what is happening is the voltage that's used to tune the set, usual;y stays rock solid, your device however is drifting off station due to this voltage changing, usually it is in the powers supply or the actual tuner itself. It can be bad capacitors, bad IC's, bad transistors, bad tuner module. Sometimes it maybe a "Dry Joint" too.
The only fix is either a replacement PSU or Tuner or indeed maybe both? One simply cannot tell exactly without examining the unit.

You need to take this unit into a Denon repair center and ask for a "Quote" as to costings etc. Once appraised of that one can proceed from there?
Contact a Denon head or local office and ask them there, for a referral to an authorised service center.

No sound to speakers with power on

OK. That tells me that the output section is good. This may sound silly, but check to be sure that the tape monitor switch is not on.
