Static from right from speaker

I have a Denon AVR-1803 with a denon DVD-1600 connected to Boston Acoustic speakers. I am getting static from the right front speaker. I have changed the speakers over and the plugs and still get static from the right front ports no matter what speaker is plugged into this port. I took the amp into my supplier and he could not get the problem to occur in the workshop. I thought I could have had a problem with an input cable but even when I remove the cables from all input components so that there is nothing plugged in except the speaker cables I still get the static in the right front speaker. The static does not change with volume except when the volume control is turned down to zero then static stops. Some times the static will start when I turn the unit on. At other times it does not occur until the unit has warmed up. I also have a problem with intermittent crackling when I play CD's from my DVD player. This crackling does not seem to occur from any other component.

Hello, I think that you've got a problem in the relay circutry or a logic problem. tell ya what I ve got the service manual and schematic for the reciever. the engineers at denon where ahead of there time when this company started. they designed the equipment around what they wanted the specs to be for signal to noise and discrete audio channels. each of the sound channels from the component and composite inputs is given its own bus and amplifier channels. these paths are also common to the reciever/tuner outputs. one question though you mentioned that the composite/component video paths are not switching from the input to the output youve designated, and that the monitor checks good. do you have another video source,either digital or analog that you can input throgh another channel to see if it is infact a switching problem. try that and let me know. I can give you help with the switching circutry form the schematic if need be. believe me I know It took me about a week to track down the service schematic for this unit. Denon doesn't like giving out info unless you are an authorized repair center.

SOURCE: 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)

SOURCE: shuts off then red light indicator flashes, disconnected all speakers but still wont work

Hi, this is a power board issue. remove the cover and make sure that this unit doesn't have blow fuse. if the fuse is fine, you will then need to replace the integrated power/ main board.

It cant up-convert component to hdmi. Input and output has to be the same. However, you wont lose anything cuz hdmi and component are comparable

What wires do I need to connect my denon avr-1803 to the speakers

All you need is some speaker wire long enough to get to each of the speakers your running. Use larger gauge if your running big speakers hard and/or over longer distances. Otherwise a medium gauge (16) will do fine.
You'll also need all the cables required to connect external components.

How can I connect my I pod Touch to my Denon AVR 1803 reveiver?

Connect the 3.5mm cable to the iPod headphone output and the two RCA plugs into any unused analogue audio input on the Denon AVR 1803. Then choose the appropriate input on the Denon, press play and enjoy the music. Be careful about volume. Start with the volume on the iPad low and adjust to suit.
Cheers, Don.

Denon avr-3200

Check a few things first to narrow this down a bit. Disable the surround processing. If this clears up that channel, then the problem is in the processing area. If the static remains, vary the volume. Does the static change volume too? If so, then the problem is in the beginning stages of the pre-amp section and is likely a transistor or two breaking down. The parts for this would be in the $5 range. This would probably be considered a "major' repair becaue of the time required to hunt down the defective part.

I am getting static out of all speakers in my Denon AVR-682 Home Theater system even at low volume. Connections and speakers are all good. Where do I start to look internally for a fix?

Static could mean a few things.

Magnets on or near (tube TV's) the system could disrupt the signal.

Try plugging the speakers in one at a time with music going to the AUX in. Run through all your settings to make sure that nothing is abnormal.

If it's plugged into a powerstrip, try plugging it into your wall outlet.

201-762-6500 is their main number.
