First try swapping the leads on the problem speaker with one that works(if it works you have a amp/receiver problem,if not,check the suspected speaker wire with a continuity tester or multimeter set in the infinite ohms position) or you can just swap it out with one you know is good.unfortunately without knowing the exact type of speaker & configuration i'm limited on the advice i can give you.if this does'nt work then let me know,& i'll research the problem further.thanx for using fix-ya.please rate all replys.

Denon avr2805 no sub output

I think you need to set the front speakers as "small" in speaker setup menu.

My amp keeps going off after having been on for about half an hour. The top of the unit feels very hot, could it be overheating? If so, can it be fixed? Regards,

If the top is very hot, I would check the impedance on the speakers to see if any are of them may be shorted or in a low ohm state.
Use an ohm meter and look at the speaker ratings.
If you have an 8 or 4 ohm speaker and it's reading 1 or 2 ohms, that's the problem.
Check at the speaker^s connectors if possible with the unit off but speaker connected.
If you have a dead short on any of them, disconnect and reconnect the leads at both the speaker end and the amp end.
If none are a dead short, disconnect the speakers and measure again.
the speakers should read whatever their rated impedance is.

My e470 main speaker on the front speake does not work. Ive checked the wiring and memenbrane al all is in order. Does it mean the speake \r is blown. Can I have it repaired or buy a new speaker if so...

It's not clear what BRAND of speaker we're talking about here. If it's JAMO...

It IS bi-amp capable. Is the jumper in place?

You could disconnect the jumper and measure its resistance of the main speaker with an ohmmeter, dead short or open is a dead speaker. Something around its specified impedance would be normal. Take a small battery and just briefly touch the speaker leads. It should make a static-like sound. If it DOES, go back to the wiring checkout.

I am using my speakers connected via the front speakers panel on the back of the machine, I don't know if it matters but they are connected as left and right using "A". So, my left speaker is...

I presume you have proven the channel is dead by trying multiple sources, swapping a different speaker onto it and that the balance control is NOT all the way to one side; headphones don't work either and we're down to proving it's dead before you take it in to a tech, right?

There is the slighest chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

If it still doesn't work you might want to prove if its a low-level signal loss or a high level amp failure. One way would be to run an RCA cable pair from the Tape Out to any other device (even a TV with speakers) you might have that accepts an audio input. If IT can't detect receive the DEAD Channel you

My2308 CI went dead. Changed the outlet, and power cable. Still dead. What should I check? Or should I bring it in?

Check the wiring to the speakers and amp, if no change, it indicates audio output ic problem. I recommend a technician to further examine the unit.

Of course it can be repaired, but not by us and maybe not economically. Take it to a tech.

Try disconnecting the speakers and a new fuse. Maybe it's just a speaker shorted. Low probability.

All Speakers suddenly dead

The internal audio amplifier is most likely dead, as it drives all speakers and the headphone output. If this is still under warranty, I would go that route. If not, it may be cheaper to buy a new receiver. Parts and labor can be will have to take it to an electronics repair shop for an estimate.

Harman kardon just went dead

You may have overloaded it. Let it rest and cool down. Check the resistance on the speaker to make sure it is in spec with your amp.

Make sure someone didn't accidentally mute it or bump the audio in source wiring.

Make sure your speaker choice (A or B or both or none for headphones only) is correct.
