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!!!

Re: AVR3803 reverting to 'standby' and will not play
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.

Most likely cause of a receiver shutting off when turned up is a bad speaker or speaker wire.
As far as having to turn it up almost all the way, that is the norm on most new receivers today. Most receivers no longer have a true preamp section, which means you have to run the main amp much harder in order to get a decent sound level.
Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.
this isn't my area of expertise but if you really wish to play resident evil, go on doperoms.com and go to emulators, choose a psx emulator and then download it then you can download any ps1 roms like resident evil and play them for free on your computer. it doesn't take a powerful computer, these games will run on an iphone 3g, leave a good rating if this helps

The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?
Does it still power up for a little bit or so with no sound what so ever?....I there is no dents in it or metal pushed in causing cracked connector boards....I can take it off you hands for a couple parts I need ...because your transformer and 2 resisters are shot and it will cost almost as much as the unit cost's.
I do have a brand new never opend $649.99 Denon AVR-788 for $365.00.
And 2 used AVR units Denon and Onkyo.....ALL HDMI
Your set is probably old enough to have a code set on most "universal" remotes.
I don't know in which country you reside but remotes for under $10 US are available from nearly any major store such as Walmart or Target and I suspect at equivalent stores elsewhere.
I have a sansui 19" LCD TV+DVD I had to attempt multiple times turning the TV on to get a picture. The sound was fine. This kept happening when I would go to turn on the set the TV kept playing fine with picture & sound but after the 2nd attemts I turned it off & then tried to turn it back on which took multiple attempts, it kept playing for a few minutes then the picture went out but the sound was still there. The set is not yet 2 years old.
