    Thanks musingteg, I have an avr 1801 which just exhibited the same problems. It looks like my R141, 142 have blown. You suggest checking the output transistors as well. I believe they are the ones in the image. Could you confirm? Thanks for your help!

This is a very common problem with denon receivers of the 2001-2-3 vintage. On almost every one, there are 4 little "surge" resistors in the power supply. These werent quite robust enough from the factory and one day would just burn open for no reason. Well, actually there is a reason, the "surge" that happens every time you power the unit up eventually weakens the resistors and then they pop. You need to take this to a denon service shop as I GUARANTEE they have seen this before. They need to check resistors in the picture, locarde above the **** rectangular connector. Resistors numbers R141, 142, 148, 149: 75f69d7.jpg These resistors when measured, should be less than 10 ohms each. If they are more, then they are blown. If they are blown, then have the shop check the channels for blown output transistors. If the outputs are OK, then these resistors should be replaced with 1 ohm 1/2 watt metal -film flameproof resistors. You might need to be prepared for a large bill, because the entire unit must come apart to replace the resistors, however, just checking them takes only about 10 minutes... Good luck and don't try this at home. Rob

If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.

It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.

I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.

I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).

I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.

Just waiting for them to arrive.

An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.

Hope thats of use!

The receiver has an internal problem like bad power supply or burnt channel. You need to bring it to a local repair shop or mail it here.

Zone 2 on my Denon AVR 1804 only works with an analog input. Apparently it was designed that way. WHY?


Because in order to use a digital input, the unit would have to completely power on. Zone 2 is designed so that it can be used with the main power off.

My friend has a Denon AVR-1801 receiver that is stuck on ''Standby'' and does not seem to want to fully power up. Can you give me some general directions to look before actually shipping it off for some...


hello there could be number of things if i was repairing it i do visual check first with a good light 1 check for burn't parts resistor cracked transistor bulging capacitors if seems ok then i check underneath the board for a dry joints these can cause a lot of problems . if that seem ok then i try and find a bit more info i'e schematic diagram this when you will need to test the components and voltages .i hope you get somethink sorted good luck

Denon avr-2106 problem!!!


You're drawing too much power from it. Sounds like maybe your sub is hooked up wrong, double check that.
