SOURCE: Denon DRA-555 Memory won't hold set FM stations when powering up

Most probably the memory capacitor / battery inside soldered to pcb

SOURCE: FM antenna is not providing

If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

My str de 925 will no lock on a radio station


Insure that the antenna is connected securely on their respective antenna

input, Stations will not lock , if the signal is low.


For FM :

• Wire antenna is applicable if your distance to the nearest FM

is about a km or less, other wise use a VHF TV antenna.


for AM :

• These antenna is directional, you may need to extend the wires

so as to receive AM stations.

I can receive FM stations properly. I cannot receive AM stations at all. Only a static sound. I disconnected the AM antenna leads and used an Ohm Meter. The meter read full continuity when I touched...


you may be in an area where am stations don't come in,, am uses straight lines of frequency where FM uses a modulated signal, which travels much farther, I bought a antenna signal booster from radio shack for a few dollars , and was able to get the stations, some pretty static filled though, but the more local ones came in ok, another thing to check is that the unit is plugged into a grounded receptacle ,

Radio stations have shushing sound


Cheap table top radio is mono. Your Denon is not getting a good signal so you are hearing noise. You need a better antenna (roof type) or the antenna needs to be moved and aimed in another direction. Try moving it while the station is tuned. You can also switch the Denon to mono and it will reduce the noise at the loss of fidelity.
