Question about Audio & Video Receivers
Nakamichi ta3a receiver has a blinking green light next to power button & no sound will come out of speakers. We don't have the right headphones to check if it's just a speaker problem, but the speakers work with our other receiver.

Ok... I'm still new to the HDMI input. But I'm going to take a shot in the dark on this one.
Please don't rate me poorly for this, by the way. I'd rather you don't rate me at all as I am not proposing a solution.
This is a guess. I'll be honest about that. So here goes... :P
I read through the manual a bit. (Click HERE for the manual.) I started thinking to myself about your situation...and noticed that you seem to be focused primarily on the receiver itself.
What about the Satellite receiver? Have you checked it to see if you might have to manually switch the audio output to your HDMI output? I know you have video and all, but many devices won't assume that you're switching BOTH the video AND the audio outputs. Sometimes you have to manually switch one or the other, depending on how you're connected.
I would check the SAT receiver to see if you have to switch the audio output to go out from the HDMI output on the SAT receiver.
It has always been my experience that when the speaker icons flash on the audio receiver and you're sending a digital signal to it, the receiver is in fact NOT receiving a signal...
...which obviously means that one is not being sent to it.
Please let me know what you come up with. Again, this was just a shot in the dark. But I am curious either way. :)
Let me know!

Did you make sure your Speaker A or B switch is pushed in? This happened to me a few times where I thought the receiver was broke, but someone had accidentally turned of the speaker A switch...

I have repaired many of these Denon receivers over the last few years.
Since the headphones work, that means if you dis-connect the speakers it will turn on and not go into protect (when power cuts off a few seconds after turning the unit on).
The most likely problem is a bad speaker. to find out which speaker is causing the problem, do this.
Start out with just one speaker connected and then turn on the unit. If it turns on and plays music, you know that speaker is good.
Now turn the unit off again and add another speaker and keep the first speaker connected. Once again, if the unit plays, that speaker is also good.
Keep doing this same procedure one speaker at a time. As soon as you connect a speaker and then try to turn on the unit and it goes into protect, the speaker you just connected is bad.
To confirm that this speaker is the bad speaker, dis-connect all speakers and only plug the suspected bad speaker into a speaker jack that worked with one of the other speakers.
If the unit still goes into protect you know then that you have found the bad speaker.
If the unit still goes into protect, that speaker is bad and you will need to take it in for repair or replace it.
make sure you use 8 ohm speakers. if i remember correctly these Denons can use 6 ohm speakers, but those are harder to find and most home speakers are 8 ohms.
If the unit does not go into protect and that suspected bad speaker plays in one of the other speaker jacks, what you really have is a bad channel in the amplifier, the channel that the suspected bad speaker was previously connected to.
If you find out you have a bad channel, you will need to take it in to an repair center. Preferably an authorized Denon service center. There are not very many of those around. I work at the only authorized Denon service center in the entire state of Michigan.
If I can be of more assistance, don't hesitate to ask. And a good rating is always appreciated. :)

Check the speaker wire. Sometimes it can just be loose in the terminals and cause distortion. I have had the problem before.

Hello there Ed.
For anyone that has ever had such an issue with a MARANTZ SR series (6001. 7001. 7002. 8001...etc...) issue a question and I do HAVE the answer.
I could be just anything, or just the low quality binding posts used by MARANTZ for that.
Please describe to me in details how you've connected your speaker wires at the back, and give me description when and how did this problem came up.
