that sounds strange. your receiver is not that smart to work out the differences between movie and music dvd. more info would be good.

Connecting Kindle Fire to Denon receiver

Assuming that you've tried a different HDMI cable, tried a different input plug and you weren't watching a 1920's silent film..its possible that the front middle speaker is the issue? try and see if there is sound coming from that speaker, its usually where the voices from movies comes from.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D510 reciever with 5 speakers and sub. The sub keeps making continual popping sounds at higher volume levels when watching movies, tv etc. Have to turn most of the way down. Also,...

Manuals help a lot.

Tell us about the speakers. Maybe they're not compatible.

As far as what to expect to hear from surrounds, that depends on the sound engineering.

Test tones for speaker setup will get it all dialed in. Page 17.

sounds like you have the polairity reversed on the speakers
and yes it does make a difference
check polairity also make sure unit is well ventelated
you wouldnt use your compouter if it was inside a card board box
so make sure the reciever can breath also
recievers get too hot and they start blowing chips off the board

Reciever wont stay powered on

I fear that there's no easy fix. Sounds like the power supply or the board which controls it is bad. If you're not an electronics repair person, it'll need to go to a repair shop.

Marantz sr18ex clicks on and off while watching dvds.

I'm not familiar with Marantz receivers but sounds like it could be intentionally cutting out either because it's overheating or it's afraid it might blow your speakers. Two basic things to try:

1) Leave it off for a few hours
2) Turn the volume way down so you can just hear it - not sure if the cutout is intelligent enough to take this into account but worth trying...

Also, any chance you have it in a closet or cabinet without adequate ventilation? Does the area where it's sitting seem especially warm? If you don't have enough air movement then overheating is far more likely.

Good luck!

Volume Control

I had the same issue, there is a Late night mode on the remote that minimizes the volume of a loud scene so you don't have the constantly adjust the volume. Works great if you are trying to watch a movie while others are trying to sleep.

TX-DS575 reciever

Normally you hear a clicking sound coming from the inside when you turn on your amp. That's the sound of the magnetic circuit breaker (switch). If you tap your amp to turn it on, and if the amp gets turned on after you did it:), then I suppose the problem is on the relevant switch.

Should I just Buy a new one?

You have a bad power supply or the audio output circuit has a short in it. You are correct by saying its probably betterv off getting a new unit. Most likly cost you more then a brand new shiny unit would . Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread
