Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Denon AVR-1505/485 stopped outputing video.
I turned the power switch off, waited, then turned it back on.
Now the receiver doesn't power up.
The display is blank; power indicator is off. It seems dead.
SOURCE: hooking up ipod
THe easiest way to hook an iPod or any other personal audio player to almost any audio receiver is to pick up a cable having a stereo miniplug (like the plug on your earbuds) on one end, and two RCA plugs on the other end. You should be able to get this cable from almost any electronics or discount store for under $10. The miniplug goes in the iPod's earphone jack, and the RCA plugs connect to an unused input on your receiver. Inputs marked "AUX" or "CD" are a good choice, or even a "TAPE" input. Set the iPod to about 3/4ths volume and adjust the receivers controls for desired volume.

SOURCE: no surround on Denon AVR-485
when you say all your speakers do you have multi house audio or do you mean just your surround speakers? if just your surround spkrs not working with Ipod have you turned the surround field to 5 ch stereo?

If your Time Warner Cable box is old enough that it has a DVI output it may have HDCP (copy protection issues) with the receiver. If you are having to use a DVI to HDMI adapter to connect to your receiver (output from Cable Box to input on Receiver) then it's very likely your cable box may have may not output the signal because it detects the HDMI repeater in the receiver.
The two best options to correct this are:
1. Connect the DVI to HDMI cable directly to the input on the TV, you lose the convenience of the video switching in the TV, but it will solve the problem. Then connect the digital audio output from your cable box to the receiver, although you've probably already done this.
2. Contact your cable provider and check into the possibility of them swapping out your cable box for a newer model that would have an HDMI output. This would be the best option since the HDMI output on the cable box would give you both the Digital Audio and Video through a single HDMI cable.
Let me know how it works out for your, or if you have any questions.

* The speaker terminals are shorted -- Disconnect speakers one at a time and try again.
* Ventilation of the unit is inadequate
* Has been running at too high a volume with inadequate cooling

Disconnect all speaker wires on back and then turn on. If it happens again, it's most likely a power supply problem. If it doesn't happen again, it was probably crossed speaker wires.
