SOURCE: Denon AVR-3802 Front Left and Centre channel not working right

I work at an authorized Denon service center and have repaired lots of Denon receivers including this model. So bare with me, and trust that I really do know what I am talking about.

The first thing you need to do is find out if those two speakers may be at fault. You can do it very easy by disconnecting them and connect two of the known good speakers into the channels that the bad sound is coming from and then connect the suspected bad speakers in where those good speakers were connected to.

If the same speakers still sound bad, you know that you have a couple of bad speakers. I think that it is likely that the speakers are OK, but it is a good idea to make sure.

If the sound from the suspected bad channels is now still bad with the two good speakers, you have an internal amplifier problem or you have a problem on the digital board.

For your sake, I hope it is the amplifier that is giving you this problem, if it is, that can be fixed by a good audio technician.

If the problem is the digital board, you may be in for some real headaches. Not that many audio techs are very good at troubleshooting a digital board, its not their fault, it is just a very difficult job.

In either case, it will need to be looked at by a qualified technician.

I hesitate to tell you this, but the problem sounds like a digital board problem. In some rare cases, a technician with excellent soldering skills can reflow a couple if the memory IC's on the digital board and restore proper operation. If the technician is top notch and isolates the problem to a specific IC on the digital board, they can replace that IC and you are good to go.
But in most cases, the technician will not even bother trying to troubleshoot the digital board because it can take hours of troubleshooting, and just order the board if it is available. Most of them are available from Denon, but they are very expensive. Normally the part alone is $200 to $300 and I have seen many times where it takes months to get it.

You can also send it directly to Denon's factory service center and that will get your unit back much quicker. They have direct access to the boards, where-as the authorized service center must order it thru one of the Denon parts distributors and they do not always have them in stock. so you end up waiting for a long time.

If you need to send it to the Denon factory service, let me know and I will email you a return authorization form, this must be faxed or emialed to Denon with the proper information and then they will fax or email it back to you with the RA number which must be written on the outside of the box before shipping it to them.

I hope that this information wasn't to overwhelming, but if you found it helpful a good rating would really be appreciated. It helps to keep the experts on FixYa motivated and willing to answer the questions people have even it the answer is not very good news.
I received an "inappropriate" rating from somebody who just wasn't happy with the truth, and most people never even bother to rate our answers. But that's another whole subject.

let me know if you need more help.

SOURCE: No sound from Sub.... from my Denon AVR-2700, not AVR-3300, Yeah its old!

Most of Denon receiver are on screen configuration. There should be an onscreen output in the back of the receiver, connect the video cable from that output to the tv and press the oncreen button on the remote to config. There s/b an option to turn the sub on. good luck

I need to know the quality of the speakers on the TV. Try unplugging it from the speakers on the TV and plug it into the souround sound speakers only and see if it plays differently. Double check your sourround sound and makes sure you did not reverse a wire.

Conncet a sony sub to a denon reciver


Depending on the model, there are two ways to connect a subwoofer to an amplifier, receiver or processor. The best way is to connect the subwoofer to the SUB OUT or LFE output of a receiver, but some subwoofers can be connected to the speaker level outputs of the receiver or amplifier.


1. How to Connect a Subwoofer to the Subwoofer Output


The preferred method of connecting a subwoofer is through the LFE or Subwoofer output (SUB OUT) of a receiver. Almost all home theater receivers (or processors) and some stereo receivers have a subwoofer output. The LFE (Low Frequency Effects) is a special output for subwoofers and is often labeled 'SUBWOOFER' not LFE. 5.1 channel programs on DVD discs have a dedicated .1 channel output with bass-only content that is best reproduced by a subwoofer. Connect the output of the LFE or Subwoofer jack to the Line In jacks of the subwoofer using a single RCA cable (the two jacks on the left in the photo). A 'Y-Cable' may be necessary to connect the LFE output to both the left and right channels of the subwoofer.

2. How to Connect a Subwoofer to Speaker Level Outputs
Some receivers and amplifiers do not have an LFE or Subwoofer output. In this case you can use the speaker outputs of the receiver to connect the subwoofer. Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs of the receiver to the left and right channel speaker level inputs on the subwoofer (the speaker inputs on the right side of the photo). Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs on the back of the subwoofer to the left and right channel front speakers.

Hope it helped..

I just received a Denon AVR-4308ci receiver. I have two passive subs in my system. The receiver only has one powered output. Since I am not using the surround back speaker outputs can I use these for the...


Sure, if you want to hear Surround Back program material coming from the subs without midrange or tweeters. (Sarcastic) Of course, the LFE program material will still be going into a black hole somewhere.

Run the subs in series with each other -
Sub Amp negative to 1st speaker negative;
1st speaker positive to 2nd speaker negative;
2nd speaker positive to amp positive.

Run the speaker level adjustments routine and enjoy.

Just for giggles, try what you were thinking about. You won't hear much from the sub(s) unless you programmed the Surround Back channel as full-range and then have something like the Apollo 13 launch for program material. Normal audio won't send much low-frequency material to those channels. The optimal place for subs is on the LFE or sub channel.

Hi all i have a Denon DRA 455 with Eltax Linear 6.5 wich is 8ohms i have a sub but no sub output, apart from sharing power between them, how can i hook these up please? thanks


You did not state if your sub is a powered sub or not, but if you use the "B" channel for your sub, it should work. This is possible if the denon will work with "A" channel and 'B" channel on together. The back of the Denon should have two sets of speaker outputs. Connect the "B" channel speaker outputs to the sub. The "A" channel will still drive your 6.5's.

I don't have a powered sub! +other problems.Denon 2308


Unhook the sub ! center speaker is for front sounds like the people talking. and a sub is for the bass like a bomb going off SO hook your sub to the sub out on your reciever. As far as the vcr..are the vcr inputs on the denon yellow? if so thats a video in (or) out but if its red or white thats for the vcr sound .

I need to set up 4 pair of speakers, two zones. all ceiling mounted.


Okay! all ceiling mounted speakers. I don't know about 4 pair of speakers.Here is the load down:
First pair of ceiling speakers would be left and right front from speaker A or Main output behind your receiver.
Second ONE,but a pair would be connect to the center channel output as your center speaker.
Another pair would be connect to the surround sound left and right(NOT surround BACK left/right.)
Now,you have 5 channel setup at this point,you still need to purchase a power subwoofer to the SUB PRE-OUTPUT behind your Denon receiver.

For Zone two,you would need to connect your other pair of speakers to surround BACK left and right output.
Go to your Denon MENU button,depending on which model you have,some of them will have an on-screen display feature(you would need to have a composite video cable connect from the video output behind your receiver to the TV video input in order to use the on screen menu.)If not,you would have to it view on the front panel of the A/V receiver.
You need to read the detail on how to setup the video and audio as well as distance and DB for the receiver through the menu button.
I will be frank with you,if you are an amateur,Denon is NOT easy to be setup on the first time.

No sound from Sub.... from my Denon AVR-2700, not AVR-3300, Yeah its old!


if the subwoofer is on in the reciecer settings then maybe the amp is not getting the signal or the amp is not amplifying
try unplugging the output of the sub then turn off the reciever for a min. then turn it on wait , then plug the sub in
if that don't work then test the sub output with a stereo that has a audio input
also test the subwoofer with a audio output to it( only a positive and a negitive wire for sub)

Tuning speaker system denon avr 2400


You need to check on the operation of your receiver regarding the use of the subwoofer output line. If it does not satisfy you, better get a better receiver or A/V control pre-amp system with lots of features in the subwoofer circuitry. Google (internet) might help you with your specific model.

If your tv is putting out mono you will only get the center and sub speakers. This can be because the tv is only mono, or the output is set to mono in a menu of the tv. If you have cable or sat run the digital audio out to you receiver; it usually sound better that way anyhow. Set your receiver to Dolby mode for best sound.
