Question about Denon AVR-1601 Receiver

Buttons not working

Yesterday my reciever decided that all the buttons on the front will not work. Even the power button. However, everything works perfect with the remote. I don't know if one of my children hit some buttons that locked the front panel???? Any body with information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks -- Andrew

Have you checked whether the front panel of your reciever hinges down or up if it does there may be a cut off button under there which when operated will let the front panel buttons work again

SOURCE: Front Panels buttons don't operate the correct function


Have you powered the unit down completely at the wall socket(disconnected) for 30 mins. This allows all program registers and functions of the microcontroller stages of the amp to fully reset. If may have a corrupted program counter for a power flip. Try this first,and if it does not help, get back to me here. If it sorts it... then FixYa :)Cheers

SOURCE: some buttons on my remote

Looks like your remote's circuitry has been affected by an external physical agent.Maybe you should get it replaced.
Thank You.

I bought sj-5501 Sharp fridge . Yesterday I have no lighting on the front panel display of the refrigerator The refrigerator works right What could be the reason ? Thanks,

You can try one of these;

1. Hold down "Energy Saving" and "Lighting" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds (or top left & right buttons). Display panel returns immediately

2. press the Freezer and Ref buttons at the same time for 8 secs and Bam!!!! Bac 2 normal!

3. pressed the power freeze and vacation buttons for about 3 secs and it worked

4. I held the top left and top right soft touch buttons on the screen itself (which I think is the power save and the lighting buttons) and held for about 8 - 10 secs and it reset

Hope it helps. Its in the combination of two buttons pressed simultaneously. Try your luck.

Sharp tv no picture

I HAVE THE SOLUTION!!!! My 52" was doing the same thing. It would work and then picture will go to snow and no inputs worked, the remote didn't even work! I would have to power everything down (Reciever, PS3, etc.) then it would work but no telling how long. Even touching the TV where the buttons are made it go to snow!! THIS IS WHAT YOU DO. Take the back cover off. Where the side buttons are, there is a board in there and it is touching the metal frame. Take something like a credit card and cut it enough so that it will not be sticking out, get some electrical tape and anchor the card to the metal frame so it will not fall out of place. You're basically protecting the board from touching the frame!! Put the back side back on and screw in place and your all set. My TV has been working perfectly ever since.

Model KUDS30FXSS1 Kitchenaid dishwasher control panel stopped working at the end of a cycle.

I had a similar problem: unresponsive buttons, then the 1 hour wash button led was on but the other buttons weren't working at all.
I power off for more than 30 seconds and after that everything return to normal.
Thank you for the hint!

2006 Trailblazer LT with power everything. Driver door & buttons (window & lock control) got very wet yesterday during heavy rain. Everything worked as of 6:00pm yesterday. This morning though,...

I think you're in luck. There is a recall for the master switch due to this very issue. Act like you don't know what's wrong, they'll need to replace it to an updated one that won't be so prone to water infiltration.

Sampo DVE-611 apparently powers up from front panel switch (w/red light) LCD display, etc. No other buttons work, incl. eject. Remote completely unresponsive. Unit shuts down about 10 sec. later. Anyone...

After several power ups, the front panel buttons eventually "woke up". Replaced remote, and everything's working fine. Not sure why the front panel was temporarily unresponsive.

Buttons not working

No solution but mine did the same thing yesterday for the first time, however I didn't drop mine. Like you, the only button that works is the power button. So frustrating!

The buttons on the front don't work.

Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?
