Question about Denon AVR-3802 Receiver

Open Question

Digital input assignments - reset

I hat do change the digital input assignments on the AVR-3802. But after a few tries one after the other was not recognized anymore. Now all three optical inputs are "ignored" which means although an optical source is connected the receiver takes the analog input instead. Before I send the receiver for repairs I'd like to try a microprocessor reset which may solve the problem but how do I do this? I cound not find anything in the manual about this.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

SOURCE: Connecting DVD player to AV receiver

If you've done that already and still no response from your system, I would suggest to take back to the place where you bought it and ask them to check it for you. Tell them that you follow the user's manual to the "T" but still unable to make it work.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: wiring speakers to denon avr 3802

Those are not compatible speakers for this unit. The Denon receiver does not have any speaker outputs for that type of speaker.

The Denon speaker outputs are full range outputs. Your speakers are not designed for that, they need an amplifier that has seperate outputs for the highs and lows.

By using these speakers you will probably damage them and they will not sound very good as well. The tweeters will end up fried and it is also likely that if one of the speakers goes bad, it will blow one of the channels in the amplifier.

If you really want to do it anyways, and don't say I didn't warn you, you could connect them using the "A" and "B" speaker outputs. Connect the woofers on one set, lets say "A", and the tweeters on the other, lets say "B". Right channel "A" would be the woofer and right channel "B" would be the tweeter for one speaker.

When listening to the unit you would need to engage both the "A" and "B" speaker to hear anything from both speakers, there are buttons on the display for the speakers marked "A" and "B" and in the display you would see little icons that light up when the speakers are engaged.

I can not stress it to you enough that this is not a good idea to use these speakers with this type of receiver. Do this at your own risk and be prepared to pay about $150 to $200 for the repair bill after the amp blows a channel.

Check that your speaker cables are not touching each other at the amp end and also at the speakers as this will cause the amp to shut down.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: No sound from optical or coax digital inputs

You have to use the system setting using the remote and turn on the inputs you want to use. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No audio on Denon AVR-588 from digital sources

If it is set to automatically detect connections then by default it will send signal to the one with the highest bandwidth, much like back in the day when you might have S video and composite connected simultaneously to the same input. So if you have your HDMI input assigned to DVD it will output that over optical or coaxial.

Hi Expert, My Denon 3802 receiver's digital inputs are not functioning. I can't get any sound from de digital coax nor from the optical input. What can be the case here ?


Not knowing if this is a sudden onset or setup issue I recommend you hit the manual and (re)check the digital source assignments. Also, any Tape Monitor activation will effectively silence digital inputs. Familiarize yourself with the controls and their interactions.

You must TELL it it has back speakers and assign the amplifiers for them. It's in the manual. Page 10-12.

I am trying to connect my new PS3 slim to my Denon AVR 590 and some odd reason I can't get any video signal from my Receiver... Something I am doing wrong?


Double check your inputs on the denon some are assignable, Check cables for looseness hdmi cables are prone to this since they are digital. make sure tv is on the right input and if it is try changing it to a different input "sometimes inputs/outputs go bad"

Using monster


Hi, You will need to go into the menu of the AVR to change a few settings. To get into the menu -
  1. Make sure you are on an input of the TV that is connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO output of the AVR (I imagine you already have this hooked up)
  2. Using the Denon remote that came with the 1907, filp it to the back side and open the door that covers more buttons.
  3. Press the System Setup button
  4. Go into the AUDIO SETUP
  5. Make sure the DIGITAL INPUT ASSIGNED is set to none for the audio input you wish to use for the PS3.
  6. Going back a menu to VIDEO SETUP, make sure that the COMPONENT VIDEO you are using is assigned to the AUDIO INPUT you are using.
That should fix your problem. If you need more clarification or this did not work feel free to post that on this question. Good Luck

Connecting Sony BDP S550 Blu-ray player to my Denon 3802 receiver.


The only thing you need is an optical audio cable (toslink) connecting the Blu-ray blayer with one of the three inputs on the AVR3802. Then assign this input in the system menu to the input you like (e. g. DVD) and that should be it. The Receiver automatically detects the sound format from the Blu-ray and changes from stereo to DTS, DD5.1, 7.1 or whatever.

Denon AVR-3802 Front Display problem


This can be either the display itself or the display driver IC havng problems. Something as simple as poor solder connections may cause this as well. Without seeing hte unit, it is difficult to say what the real problem is. If you can solder, try resoldering all of the voltage regulator ICs in the unit. These look like transistors and will be marked 7805 or 7812. If the voltages drift too low because of bad connections, the ICs can get "confused" and not work properly.

Keep us posted.
