Question about Denon AVR588 Receiver
I purchased a new avr588, got it home, plugged everything in, pushed the power button and waited. the screen came up, it said "AV SURROUND", then said "RECEIVER" and then it cuts off with a blinking red light standby button. Can anyone help?
I can't believe you haven't received an answer before now.
The red flashing light normally indicates that the protection circuit has been tripped. It can be caused by something as simple as a short in a speaker wire. Even if there is one strand of loose wire that makes contact with the back of the receiver, another wire, etc. it can cause a short. To protect itself the receiver will simply shut down.
1st. I would suggest disconnecting all the speaker wires from the back of the receiver. Then turn on the receiver (obviously you won't hear any sound) and see if the receiver does the same thing. If it does you should try disconnecting all of the source components (DVD player, Cable box etc.) and try again. If it still does it the receiver is bad and needs to be serviced or exchanged if you still can.
2nd. If the receiver stays on after you disconnect, then turn off the receiver and connect one speaker at a time, then power on the receiver at test it after connecting each speaker. This way if it suddenly shuts down after connecting a speaker you know which speaker or wire to check.
Let me know how it works out for you, I hope this helps if you haven't figured it out already.
