Re: power light on, unit will not turn on with push...

When power was intermittant, were there any other discrepencies or audible power deprivation to the speakers? Your problem has many possibilites from fuses to major amplifier problems to common power supply failures. Being intermittant then dead may still be a simple fix, but not without some physical intervention of test gear. Sorry, Jaszy

Denon AVR-1908 won't power on

Are you getting a standby light at all? Is it flashing? Do you here a click when you plug the unit in? If the answer is no to all of these then you blew a fuse. If you do have soome sort of standby light, then your set is in protect mode. More than likely for a blown channel. If no lights, but you ar egetting a click, you could have a bad transformer. Use a DVM and see if it is open or not. Good luck

My ARV 340 has power (yellow light is on) but the blue light doesn't come on to turn on unit.

The receiver in protect mode, check all speaker wiring to be sure there is no short, if okay! the audio output semiconductors are probably shorted or loading down the system. I highly recommend a professional for this job.

I have a Denon 1708 receiver. When I push the "on" button, either on the unit itself or using the remote, the light flashes green for a few seconds, then flashes red. When it turns red, all of the info...

Your result indicates the unit is not passing its power up self test. The first thing to try would be to remove all connections to the unit and try to power up. If it still mis-behaves, the unit has an internal problem best left to pros unless you're pretty good digging through circuitry. If it comes up stable, then reconnect things one at a time until the issue occurs again. Detach the offending connection and look for issues in the cables or the connected unit.

blinking power lights are a factory setting to inform the customer there is an internal electronic fault. and the unit needs to be repaired by a service pro in 99% of cases the owner can do nothing to fix it.

Won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate

Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

Not powering on

1. The power cord is not completely insered. 2. the impedance selector switch on the rear panel is not fully set to the upper or lower end - (set it when the unit is in the standby mode) other then that, you will have to call for a service.
