Question about Denon AVR-3803 Receiver
My receiver is about 2 years old and has been used very little. I set it up at my new residence and was playing it rather loud (but not nearly as loud as I had in other demonstrations). The unit tripped what the manual describes as a "protector circuit", and now it will not play at all regardless of settings. When turned on, all the lights come on briefly, then the lights go off without making power. The manual says if I do everything it suggests (which I have) and nothing works, then send it to a Denon service center. Does anyone know how to reset or otherwise defeat this? There is no service center for 300 miles. HELP!!!
A componet sounds like it has blown out or shorted in the output circuit. There are no user replaceable parts im sorry to say unless you know how to trouble shoot and repair solid state circuits. A protection circuit is there so you dont burn up the speakers, as if the speakers did not have a relay to take them out of the circuits, a shorted output device would fry the speakers.
