Question about Denon AVR-1604 Receiver

Open Question

No sound on Denon AVR-1604

I turned the unit on and I am not getting any sound whatsoever. Working backwards, I checked the speakers on another system and they work fine. I then checked the speakers with the speaker wires hooked up to another amp and they work fine. So I've concluded that the problem is in fact with the receiver. I checked all the connections and tried to run a speaker test and nothing happens. Help !!!!!

If your tv is putting out mono you will only get the center and sub speakers. This can be because the tv is only mono, or the output is set to mono in a menu of the tv. If you have cable or sat run the digital audio out to you receiver; it usually sound better that way anyhow. Set your receiver to Dolby mode for best sound.

I have repaired many of these Denon receivers over the last few years.

Since the headphones work, that means if you dis-connect the speakers it will turn on and not go into protect (when power cuts off a few seconds after turning the unit on).

The most likely problem is a bad speaker. to find out which speaker is causing the problem, do this.

Start out with just one speaker connected and then turn on the unit. If it turns on and plays music, you know that speaker is good.
Now turn the unit off again and add another speaker and keep the first speaker connected. Once again, if the unit plays, that speaker is also good.

Keep doing this same procedure one speaker at a time. As soon as you connect a speaker and then try to turn on the unit and it goes into protect, the speaker you just connected is bad.

To confirm that this speaker is the bad speaker, dis-connect all speakers and only plug the suspected bad speaker into a speaker jack that worked with one of the other speakers.
If the unit still goes into protect you know then that you have found the bad speaker.

If the unit still goes into protect, that speaker is bad and you will need to take it in for repair or replace it.
make sure you use 8 ohm speakers. if i remember correctly these Denons can use 6 ohm speakers, but those are harder to find and most home speakers are 8 ohms.

If the unit does not go into protect and that suspected bad speaker plays in one of the other speaker jacks, what you really have is a bad channel in the amplifier, the channel that the suspected bad speaker was previously connected to.

If you find out you have a bad channel, you will need to take it in to an repair center. Preferably an authorized Denon service center. There are not very many of those around. I work at the only authorized Denon service center in the entire state of Michigan.

If I can be of more assistance, don't hesitate to ask. And a good rating is always appreciated. :)

Well,i can tell you are not very focus,cause you posted Denon AVR-2807 with Bose AC 15 problem,but under your details,you put down AVR-5807!
First of all,it is so unfortunate that you are NOT able to gain and experience to true ability in sound for this wonderful receiver when you are using a dual tweeters speakers and expect to have good sound separation as a TWO WAY speakers(a tweeter and a midrange-for true high frequency and mid frequency sound separation.)
Secondly,you have defeated the audio configuration of the Denon AVR-2807,since all your speakers are control BY the Bose subwoofer.
Now,i could show you a way to hook this up,and it doesn't matter how you connect them, they are the "bicycle tires" installed with a "Porche"engine if you know what i mean.
If you want a good recommendation for your "beast",i will more than happy to show you the way!
Cheers,

Only red light is blinking on my denon avr 1508


It sounds like you overloaded the Denon avr with too much resistence from the speakers. Please check the total resistence of the speakers before you connect them all. Also check that the speakers or their wires are not shorted!

Protection Light Flashing


You will need to measure the output transistors as well as the driver transistors or IC's for shorts, as it is a DC voltage that will trigger this protection circuit. If you have a PDF of this service manual, I would like to take a look at it and to tell you what to check.

Was it a good buy


Have you ever heard of Quad, I bought my 33/303 set up 30 yrs ago! still sounds great. If you can find Tannoy speakers (Reds or Golds) for sale, a good pair will cost more than they did nearly 40yrs ago. Good equipment should last a long time.

If you like it keep it and enjoy the sound, set it up the way you like it and have fun.

Hope this helps, thanks for using Fixya

Denon AVR-1604 too large front speakers blew the avr


Try disconnecting the speakers at the receiver. turn it on radio or any other source and turn up the volume. If the receiver still shuts of, there is an internal capacitor issue and needs serviced. More than likely though, it's a speaker problem. If the speakers were underpowered and at max volume, chances are the damage was to a voice coil in one of the speakers. If the receiver continues to stay on without being connected it's ok. check your speaker wires as well. Frequently loose braids on wires touch each other and create very little resistance until turned up, more volume, more resistance. Then the receiver puts itself into protection mode so no damage will occur. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further.

Denon AVR -1604 Powers off after 3 seconds


Check in the amp section for a short on the output transistors. It may need a resistor or two also. I doubt that it would be in the power supply.

Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working


time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals

now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).

B Speakers: Rear A Speakers and Sub stay on


First, check you wiring. Have you tried to turn off all speakers then turn on only the "B" set?

Might also be your "surround" settings. Try a "2" channel mode if available.

GL!
