The buttons assigning DVD, TV, VCR, etc suddenly changed their assignments. DVD was now TV, VCR was now DVD, etc. I don't think it all happened at once either. Now I can't get sound from the...

There are facilities to CHOOSE the digital assignment. I've seen where extended power loss will randomly lose custom settings. Open the manual.

When i play my PS3 game the receiver shorts out and shuts off at random points...also does that when watching a movie will just randomly turn off and short out


Cutting out on the sound is usually a blown IC on the circuit board of the unit itself. This can also result in the player turning off randomly.

Take you receiver to your nearest electronic repair shop, let them replace the blown IC.

This should do the trick.

Kind regards

Humming sound when watching tv,but not when watching dvd's

It wounds like you are getting interference from you tv to the receiver. You can try a few different things here.

1. Connect the tv output into another input on you receiver to see if it isnt the channel on the receiver.

2. Try a different set of cables between the tv and receiver. Faulty cables can give you problems.

3. Connect the cable from you tv to a different device. (another dvd vcr blue ray etc.) This will tell you if its the receivers or the tv.

Yamaha Receiver sound cuts out with Dolby Digital.

Your problem is related to HDMI technology not the Receiver. HDMI in it's current version 1.3b has worked out 90% of the current problems being reported by HDMI users. it's a problem with HDCP digital copyright protection and the recording industry not wanting us "consumers" to duplicate or record their DVD's. Your receiver and every other receiver with version 1.1,-1.2, & 1.2a just don't cooperate with BluRay and even HD Cable or HD Sat receivers. If you just purchased this receiver recently, return it and get an 09' model or equivalent with 1.3a or 1.3b HDMI technology. If this unit is "un-returnable" then, what needs to happen is you need to run component video and digital audio to the receiver OR Run your HDMI directly to your TV and run a Digital Coaxial to your DVD audio input on the receiver. Depending on how many sources you are running to the TV via HDMI will be limited to the TV's capability (how many HDMI inputs)

Now, if your TV is 50" or smaller, the difference between running HDMI and Component is unmeasurable to the human eye. So, if you have to run component, don't sweat it! just use good cable, ie. Monster, Phoenix, Translucent etc. I do theese installs every day, and I still prefer Component or DVI if available over HDMI. They just haven't proved the reliability to me yet and we're three years in! Hope this helps

Denon avr-1909 crackling sound while watching Uverse HD.

It may may the the AT+T box is really not compatible with the AVR or the Pioneer.

Check the specs on those input/outputs for the Ubox and the receiver.
See if they agree. If so, try another hookup method like HDMI ( which carries the audio too)

Sound cuts out- cable tv

I had the same problem when I installed the new HD Comcast cable box (DCH3200), initially with my CRT through RF, then with my HDTV through HDMI. Problem solved when I replaced the box with the Comcast RNG110 I got from my local Comcast. It is a neat miniaturized box and it works extremely well on HD. There is no power switch on the box so before activation do not forget to put it on with the remote (cable, power, the green light will come on).

Sound cuts out.

I had the same issue with the front right speaker randomly cutting out. Thought it was a loose solder joint however upon taking it apart i found that something near the back panel was shorting out. While apart i found that wiggling the rear panel would cut in and out the speaker. Also the fan would turn on when the speaker worked, which until i took it apart i didn't know it had a fan. I removed the back panel by taking out several screw the hold the cable plug-ins. once the panel was out i insulated it with electrical tape then used a utility knife to cut out all the cable connector holes. I also took out a couple screws on the main board so i could lift it a bit from the back and ran electrical tape over the solder point for the speaker connectors. Put it back together and haven't had any cut out's since. I now notice that the fan now runs all the time exept when i press mute. I also hear a single tap noise for a second when i mute or turn off the receiver. I can certainly put up with that though. Hope this helps someone else, I put up with the speakers cutting out for 6 months before i got around to taking it apart. Also those bannana plugs are a rip off, I went to future shop to buy them and couldn't beleive they were 25.00 for two pair. That would mean it would cost me 75.00 to do my 5 speakers. Thats more than i paid for my dvd player. anyhow i didn't buy them and just used bullet connectors, pack of 10 for less than 5.00, not made of gold but they work fine.
