Denon AVR 2500 won't tune

I can't get my receiver to reliably tune fm or am. Sometimes, briefly, it will pull in a station very clearly, but if I change the station it won't tune anything again. On auto mode, it's muted. On manual, it's pure static. I've moved the antenna around, no help. Is this common in Denon receivers?

SOURCE: Lost audio for no apparent reason

Try unplugging your HDMI cable from the AVR I would like to see if your AVR is trying to use HDMI out instead of the composite. Next try plugging each device directly into your television, this will isolate the issue and tell us for sure whether or not it's the AVR.

SOURCE: Denon receiver AVR-3300: Unstable source selection

Very important you have run system set up menu it configures your receiver with inputs analog or digital,speaker size,input,room correction etc Different input modes can be selected for the different input sources.
The selected input modes for the separate input sources are stored in
the memory.
q AUTO (auto mode)
In this mode, the types of signals being input to the digital and
analog input jacks for the selected input source are detected and
the program in the AVR-3300’s surround decoder is selected
automatically upon playback. This mode can be selected for all
input sources other than PHONO, MD/TAPE and TUNER.
The presence or absence of digital signals is detected, the signals
input to the digital input jacks are identified and decoding and
playback are performed automatically in DTS, Dolby Digital or PCM
(2 channel stereo) format. If no digital signal is being input, the
analog input jacks are selected.
w PCM (exclusive PCM signal playback mode)
Decoding and playback are only performed when PCM signals are
being input.
e DTS (exclusive DTS signal playback mode)
Decoding and playback are only performed when DTS signals are
being input.
r ANALOG (exclusive analog audio signal playback mode)
The signals input to the analog input jacks are decoded and played.
t EXT. IN (external decoder input jack selection mode)
The signals being input to the external decoder input jacks are
played without passing through the surround circuitry Your remote is searching for inputs because you did not properly run system set up!!! Here is a link to your manual [PDF] AVR-3300/1 3.3E*

SOURCE: Denon AVR-1100 receiver "PROTECT" mode

replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. i had the exact same problem with mine and once i replaced the capacitors it powered up and stayed on and worked perfect.
these capacitors tend to fail as they're of poor quality.
this fault is very common on denon receivers, especially the later models.

hope this helps?

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CONNECT MY SPEAKERS AND I HAVE BUT THE TV IS NOT BEING PICKED UP BY THE RECEIVER. DENON AVR 1800.


Have you looked at the manuals for the Denon and the TV?

TV is a visual output, not an audio source, unless you tune stations through its antenna.

Struggling to get my tuner working on the AVR-3803 - not sure what is wrong. just not getting any sound from the speakers. everything else works


Perhaps you aren't tuning any stations. That would be a good first step toward audio. Install an antenna, too. "Tuned" and "stereo" are indicators there is a listenable station tuned in.

Denon AVR 1910 - no sound from v-aux or tuner


The tuner is the best source for testing audio issues from a receiver since it uses an internal source for audio. This problem could be two separate issues. Check the tuning in the tuner to make sure it is on a station that you are receiving. The newer Denons will not play any audio is the station is not coming in. Be sure your antenna is connected and tune the station to one that comes in clear.
What source is hooked up to the V. Aux? If an iPod it is common that the volume on the ipod is down .

Can't get clear sound when not in "bypass" mode on Denon Pro Logi


From the FM radio mode, from your remote press the speaker button to make sure just the front speakers are on, make sure surround is off and use the tone cotrol button on the right side of the amp to adjust the bass and treble. That should clear things up a bit

Can't find a radio frequency


check if the antenna is connected right. I assume it is FM. If AM and SW there are different antennas. Make sure the ends of the antenna connecting to the receiver unit is stripped. Best of luck
