Try a quick blast of compressed air into the headphone jack area. Worked great for me.

Denon AVR 789 no display


Time to send back to Denon (seriously). Hopefully you have a warranty on your product (I bought mine at Fry's and it took a few months for the warranty work to be performed). Good luck!

How do I set my receiver to read TV/CBL Dolby Digital. It is a AVR 789


The Dolby digital signal is outputted only through the Optical or Coaxial socket of the CBL box. you will have to get an optic fiber or coaxial cable depending which cable box you have and connect it to the digital input of the Denon receiver. The Denon's digital input are already assigned at the back. Eg: Optic input might be labeled CD so if you are connecting the CBL box to the optic input remember to select CD on the Denon to hear the cable sound, same goes with the coaxial input.

I had the unit set to a second zone that ran into a splitter for four different areas of my house. The second zone is not working, how do I test to see if it is the denon unit or the splitter ?


Plug something other than Zone 2 into the splitter, say, any tape out on the Denon. Keep it simple. Play FM.

When and if THAT works go back to the manual and analyze why Zone 2 isn't working. Observe the Zone 2 Output indicator. (Page 5)

You must have a TV or other speaker-capable device that you can run Zone 2 OUT to. Try that to prove your setup works.

I have a harmon kardon av 20. everything worked fine, lastnight i switched from my tv sound to the tuner and now no sound at all. i tried different speakers, and ohmed out my old speakers. any ideas?


For NO SOUND problems, FM is the best source since there are NO connections to get wrong. Or use built-in speaker test tones.



Find the manual and carefully evaluate every indicator on the face to make sure you understand what they mean and how they might affect operations. Look for Speakers NOT enabled, Muting ON, a Tape or other input inadvertantly selected. If you fail to find the errant setting, treat it like a new install and set it up all over again according to the manual.

Im trying to hook up my wii to my surround sound and i have a denon avr-789 and im hooking it up to the aux outlet and im only getting sound no video


Connect all of your cables to your display and then connect another set of cables to your audio variable out from the television to the input you wish to get sound from on the receiver. Then make sure your tv is selected to the input you plugged the wii into, for example, Front video or Video 1 etc etc.

Intermitting sound problems on Onkyo SR-705


Does it only happen when its being stressed (played really loud)? Is it hot? If so, is it well ventilated and away from other heat sources?

Somewhere in here is the answer.


"The AV receiver turns off as soon as it’s turned
on
• The amp protection circuit has been activated.
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately.
Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources,
and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected
for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord
and set the volume to maximum. If the AV receiver
stays on, set the volume to minimum, disconnect the
power cord, and reconnect your speakers and input
sources. If the AV receiver turns off when you set the
volume to maximum, disconnect the power cord, and
contact your Onkyo dealer."

That last sentence is misleading. I don't think they actually want you to play an active signal at MAXimum as a test. I think they mean with all sources attached and an idle one selected, like CD, crank the volume knob. If the amp is not in Protection mode you should always be able to detect some hiss up close.

For another thing, if it shuts down only with speakers attached the problem could be outbound at one or more of the speakers. I would isolate that piece somewhat before throwing my hands up and calling Onkyo. Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting. Disconnect certain speakers and try it again until you figure out which one(s) are involved. Then it could be the speakers.

NO SOUND


HI
>check the settings on the stereo and see if you have the correct setup: AV 1 ( DTS, Auto, Analog)
If you are using the standard RCA cable (red/White) = Analog
or try the Auto if you are not sure.

I hope this can help
Thanks

Surround sound from Sky +


Could be two things:

First you have to make sure the speakers are all active, there is a speaker button on the RXV361 front on the right I think but not on the remote, you need B setting for all speakers. You run the sound test from the set up menu.

or it could be that Sky is not showing the programme you are watching in 5.1 so you won't hear it from all speakers, you can force this by using the Music enhancer button of the RXV361 remote.

Hope that helps?
