Denon AVR-2803 : No sound from Zone 2 Speakers

After working great for 3 years when I tried to turn on Zone 2 (lately) the whole AVR unit shut off. I reinitialized the microprocessor (per the manual) and now I can select Zone 2 with the unit remaining on. However, I still can't get any sound from any of my Zone 2 speakers (Zone 2 volume is up enough) from any source. Thanks.

    Are you running the system in 5.1 surround or 7.1 surround? If you are running it in 7.1 surround, the unit will allocate the power for the second zone to the 2 extra speakers for 7.1. You man need to change the settings in the menu to allow this.

Could be bad connection. Try to tight connection cables on receiver and TV.

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.

When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.

If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.

If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.

On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".

If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.

I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.

If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.

If I can be of any further help, let me know.

You have to switch your remote into Zone 2 Mode. It will be an option on your remote. Once you put it in that mode, you can change the source just as you would Zone one.

One or the output channels is probably bad you can check for a short on the output transistors using an ohm meter. Make sure that the receiver is un-pluged. The ouput transistors will be on a large heat sink.

Check your speaker wires on zone 2 and look inthe manual for speaker configurations with zone 2. you may have a speaker conflict. If you still have an issue, post a comment with your speaker setup and I'll help some more. Hope this helps

Try a reset to factory defaults and reprogramming your preferences. Time consuming, but sometimes things go bung inside the microprocessor controllers.

Avr-5700 One of my channels is crackling. I was told some kind of reset would help.


You can reset your reciever by completing three simple steps

1.Switch off the unit using the main unit's power switch

2.Hold the following DIRECT button and STEREO button, and
turn the main unit's power switch on.

3.Check that the entire display is flashing with an interval of

about 1 second, and release your fingers from the 2 buttons
and the microprocessor will be initialized.
If step 3 does not work start over and attempt again. Be aware this will reset all setting to factory defaults. Hopefully this helps.
Thanks.

Denon AVR 1609 volume Zone 2


Logitech recommends that zone 2 is controlled using device mode on your Harmony remote. Controlling zone 1 and zone 2 simultaneously within activities may lead to the AV Receiver turning on and off unexpectedly as you switch between activities. For example, if you try to turn on zone 2 within an activity, it may turn on or off zone 1 and vice versa. Controlling zone 2 in device mode will prevent this from happening.

My reciever is shutting down completley when i try to turn on the second zone. i tried rewiring it but it still does it could it be the reciever or do i just have the settings incorrect?


if the reciever shut down with zone 2 on, zone 2 volume at -3 and nothing connected to zone 2 it needs repair if not reconnect the speakers to zone 2 speaker connections and make sure you do not have more than 4 pair of speakers with impedence matching volume controls or a impedence matching speaker selector box
