Whenever I was putting the receiver back into the cabinet I bumped the digital input cable. It came out of the back of the receiver and the little door over the plug in for the cable came off. I have the door and the spring but it looks like the black framing that goes around the outside of where the door goes is cracked. I was told that I could use the #2 input but I would like to fix the broken one too.I don't know what to do with it. Also is this a good receiver when you mainly use it for music and not surround sound?

Re: Small Door on Digital input came out.
It is going to cost way more than it is worth to have repaired, but a local repair shop will be able to fix it. It will require unsoldering from the circuit board and soldering another in its place. The connector itself is not repairable, just replaceable. Leave it be dont worry it wont hurt anything!
Very nice amp for either music or surround, but when you play music, put it on two channel mode or stereo mode for the best 2 channel sound.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your home theater receiver has a digital optical input, run a digital optical cable from digital optical OUTPUT on TV to digital optical INPUT on receiver. If receiver is older and only has analog inputs, you can get an 1/8 inch to RCA cable(red/white), and plug 1/8 inch side to an output on back of TV and plug RCA side to aux input(or CD or cassette input) on back of receiver. DO NOT PLUG INTO PHONO INPUT! Either one of those cables can be found at Walmart, radio shack, or best buy, etc. Digital Optical cable is definitely the best choice, but I just used the 1/8 to RCA setup to hook up a Sony led to my brother's early 90's Pioneer receiver(not the ideal setup, but will work). Hope this helps.
The Dolby digital signal is outputted only through the Optical or Coaxial socket of the CBL box. you will have to get an optic fiber or coaxial cable depending which cable box you have and connect it to the digital input of the Denon receiver. The Denon's digital input are already assigned at the back. Eg: Optic input might be labeled CD so if you are connecting the CBL box to the optic input remember to select CD on the Denon to hear the cable sound, same goes with the coaxial input.
This problem has 3 possibilities, that your tv audio output is already damage or the cables that connecting to your tv and digital reciever is loosed or damage and may be your digital reciever sound pre amplifier is damage. Let's start to your tv, try to use a dvd player or cd player and connect it directly to your tv audio video input, or you can remove the connection from the digital receiver and use a small piece of wire then connect it to your tv antenna input and set your tv mode to aerial tv.If the tv produces sounds your tv is ok. To wire connection, first try to check all the cables that connecting to your tv and digital receiver specially the input, output connection,If wire is ok. Then the digital receiver has the problem try to contact service provider and ask if your digital receiver has a warranty.
Hi, How to connect your cable to your home theater system depends on several factors. So what I'll do is try to cover all of them. If your home theater RECEIVER has various types of inputs then there will be several ways to do it. If your cable box has various types of outputs there will also be several ways to do this. Let's start with the basics. All cable boxes that I have seen have Red colored and White colored (RCA type) stereo outputs. This also applies to any stereo or Home theater system which will have multiple inputs of the same type and color. If you connect a cable between the cable box's Stereo Outputs and into the cable (or satellite audio inputs of the Home Theater system. Then Switch the Home theater input to the same input, that will work.
If the cable box has an coaxial digital output ORANGE "RCA" TYPE PLUG) and the receiver has the same, connect a single RCA connector between the two. Then go into the input menu of the receiver and change that to digital as opposed to analog. (The red and white ones)
If the two pieces, Receiver and Cable box have optical connectors (little black square door with a red light behind it). Use that and set up the Receiver to receive a digital audio input. With either the coaxial or optical connections used. You will have full surround sound when it is being broadcast.
Another possibility is that the receiver has discrete RCA input connectors for Left and Right Front, Center, Left and Right Rear and Sub Woofer. Again, if the cable box has these, have at it.
The last one is really simple. If your equipment is relatively new there will be an HDMI connector on the back of the Receiver. If there is one on the cable box, which often there is for HD cable. Get a single HDMI cable and connect the two together.
I think that is all I know about the subject. It might be a good idea to print this little article I wrote for you and use it as a reference while looking at the back sides of your home theater receiver and cable box. I hope I've been a help to you. Please let me know. Best Regards, Mark
The Denon apparently has an automatic selector to choose the digital input over the analog input if both are present (my Pioneer does this). The random switching is telling you the digital input is intermittently dropping out and coming back. You don't say if you're using the optical or coaxial digital interface. Coaxial is less prone to connection problems. If you use optical, make sure the ends are clicked in and there are no small radius bends in the cable. Tight curves reduce the optical power. Either way, check the connections and wiggle them to see if you can cause the problem to return.
Possibly a bad cable, but not likely its a 'wrong' one. Any RCA-style cable will do for SPDIF coaxial digital signals. Try another one. Are there other Digital Coaxial inputs you could try to prove the function?
You may have to configure your Digital Inputs so the receiver knows Digital Input 1 is Coaxial.
There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.
HI, make sure the audio out put on the ps3 is set to hdmi and set to stream dolby digital,aac, dts, etc,then set audio input on your 696 to hdmi,also check that audio out for hdmi is set to off in the hardware menu on your amp,if you still have problems use the optical out on the ps3 as the ps3 does not out put hd master audio or dolby true hd only pcm, you will still get dolby digital.
The receiver that came with your speakers should have a digital input for a dolby digital source. On the back of the receiver it's probably labled "digital coax" or it could be an optical as well.
Your new Blu-Ray has these outputs on the back. it's as simple as getting the correct cable and selecting that input on the receiver.
To make sure you get the right cable, look at the back of the receiver, and the blu-ray. Look for the digital input on the receiver, and get a cable that matches that. It's either a single RCA cable, or an optical.
So when done, you will have the HDMI or Component out from the Blu-Ray going to the TV, and the digital audio going to the receiver. To hear the sound through the receiver, just go to that input on the receiver.
From the Sony site
"The word UNLOCK may appear in the display if there is a problem receiving a digital audio signal. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.
Ensure the correct input is selected to receive the Audio/Video (A/V) from the appropriate source.
Ensure a digital cable is connected to appropriate DIGITAL jack.
Ensure the other end of the digital cable is properly connected to the A/V source.
Ensure the A/V source is set appropriately to output a digital signal.
NOTE: The A/V source may have a DTS setting that needs to be turned on, or a DPCM setting that needs to be set to Dolby Digital."
