Denon AVC-A1SE in protection mode

Hi,
Current status: Amp goes in protection mode when switched on. On/Off light keeps blinking.

Problem: Left channel gave loud hum, the amp when in protection mode. Gave to service centre for repairs. Worked for few months and same problem came up. This time it burned left channel midrange B&W speaker that needed to be replaced. Service centre was of no help.

Request: I have adequate knowledge of electronics and if yor are able to guide me precisely, I may be able to repair the amp.

Thanks for help

Hi,

After thorough cleaning of the speaker leads, PC Boards etc, I desoldered all the leads of the main two power transistors of the Left channel that had given problem earlier. Switched on the amp and bingo, it did not go in protection mode which confirmed that the two power transitors were the culprit. After checking the voltages and values of some other vital componenets vis-a-vis remaining left channels, it was confirmed that the circuitry was okay. The power transistors were checked again and found to be okay as well. I then took a chance and resoldered not only these two Left channel power trnasitors but also resoldered all the leads of all the other power transistors as well.

The amp was switched on again and this time also it did not go into protection mode. The amp is working fine. Problem could be either dry solder or short of power transistor leads by stray solder waste strand. There was no need to change any part which was great.

Thanks for help anyway.

The numbers of the transistors thay you need to replaced are on the transistor themselfs. Just take out the bad transistors and get the numbers that you need. I ALWAYS replace the output, driver and bias control transistor myself. One thing to keep in mind, if the number on the transistor starts with "A or B or C or D or K" you need to add "2S" in front of that number when you order it. Now that this problem has repeated itself, double check your wire and speaker. They can cause this problem.

Denon avr2312ci shuts off and blinks red


Yes that is why. The receiver is protecting itself from an un-stable load impedance which causes current/voltage spikes through the final amplifier components and proportionally through the input where the protection relay is (click),. Do not continue using the amp until you have repaired or replaced the blown speakers. A rule of thumb is to maintain 8 ohms on each speaker wire plugged into the amp. Keep that in mind or eventually you will damage it.

Red power light blinking on my denon avr 1907, tried reset procedure, no speakers hooked up now and it still goes from green light to blinking red light and shuts off...Any clues?


This is a protection mode. The receiver protection circuit detects an internal problem like missing power supply voltage or blown channel and shuts down the receiver. You need to bring the unit to a repair facility.

When i tun on my DENON avc-2800 amplifier it comes up with 'protection'. How do i fix this


Please see the link below for an explanation of Protect mode. Specific to your model, the output transistors are likely to be shorted. This particular model will shutdown the entire unit if any of the channels have a problem. Without actually seeing the unit and taking some internal measurements, I cannot state for sure the parts required for repair. I would expect a parts cost in the $20-$40 range minimum.

It's likely that you have shorted some speaker outputs, I had that problem and sorted it. Unfortunately it does mean replacing some output transistors..the devices are dificult to get to just to add insult to injury. They are the devices that are mounted directly onto the large heatsink and solder connected to the bottom circuit board. You only have to change the matched pair that you have blown....tricky to identify which ones without some electronics knowledge. The power output section does have some fuses to protect it but sadly these do not appear to be fast enough to stop "one" from damaging the power output stage if you unfortunately short outputs. The transistors are available from Farnell, use pin compatible replacements SAP15N and SAP15P.....all the best. Doctor Bill

I have a Denon AVR 887 surround sound receiver head unit in my living room. Today I was putting in new speakers, and it worked fine for about5 minutes, then it shut off. Now I keep getting a red flashing...


If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.

It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.

I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.

I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).

I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.

Just waiting for them to arrive.

An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.

Hope thats of use!

Stuck on standby


Unit is in protect mode there are a few problems that can trigger protect mode the most common is blown channel (shorted outputs). Sometimes one of the 15v regulators may go bad causing imbalance of supplys triggering protect mode. Also sometimes a bad solder connection could cause unit to go into protect also.

Denon AVR-1508


sounds like overload protection
turn the volume all the way down, then turn it on
if that doesn't do it you may have a short in one of the speaker lines - try disconnecting them one at a time
