Re: denon reciever

Sounds like you are exceeding the maximum power output of the receiver. Try disconnecting some speakers (and switch to A-only mode if your model has multi-zone) and see if that makes a difference.

On-screen display (OSD) isn't coming up because you're only viewing picture from your Blu-Ray player. You need to switch TV input over to your receiver to get the OSD. But you probably figured that out by now. Don't worry, I've done that before too.

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.

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.
