Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver

1 Answer

Recording out of my Denon

I have an issue recording out. I have my denon hooked up to my turntables and want to record my records onto minidisc. I am aware that the digital outputs on the 3805 are just passthru but even when I hook up the analog cables to the TAPE OUT jacks I dont get a signal ??? I am seriously lost for answers and have tried everything to get an output signal. Is there a button I have pressed or something ??? Any help would be appreciated.

No, if you have nothing on the tape out, there is a problem I'm afraid with the preamp section of this receiver. the tape out should always be on, no mater what mode is being used. Good Luck

Vinyl recording turntable

The Denon will act just like a standard tape recorder. It should have an audio in, for recording. If that socket is connected to the audio out of a tape socket on your receiver, the Denon will pick up the signals that are sent to your receiver from whatever source. All you have to do is follow the instructions for recording on the Denon then. If you have lost the user manual for it, it's free on-line.

In my DENON DP-300F tone arm don't come back after playing record. It just stays in the end of record? How can i fix it?

A lot of decks don't actually do that anyway. But if it previously did this then it's probably a mechanical problem. Removing the bottom of the turntable might show up the cause of the problem.

Hi,I have just bought a Denon dn m991r second hand and I am having problems recording on analog.I press record and DIGITAL IN starts flashing on display,I press play/pause button but nothing happens no...

Go here - . Get the owner's manual. Read it.

The preset mode changes whether you record analog or digital.

Assuming nothing is jamming or is bent, the weak eject is probably why the guy sold it to you. It can't hurt to take the cover off and watch what happens.

Why can't I get my turntable to sound right on my

Turn table? You mean like records? lol
The output of record players is different voltage than like cd players, etc...
Does your stereo have input for turntable or are you hooking it up to an extra rca input? I had mine hooked up wrong before and it did same thing.

Sorry, but it's around twelve years old and spares are no longer available. The only fix is to trplace it with another used MD deck.

You can see the specs of yours and compare it to others at, later models are far better as they have MDLP capability and some even have NetMD functions for digital file transfers onto MD's.

Connection/configuration issue: I have a Denon

Just confirming my understanding of your connections :

1). The DVD1800BD output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVD-in HDMI.
2). The DVD/VHS recorder output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVR-in HDMI.
3). The DVD/VHS recorder input (S-video and L/R Audio) is connected to AVR3808's DVR-out(SVideo and L/R Audio).

What other inputs have been connect to your AVR3808?
Does the recorder have Component Video inputs?

Please also connect DVD1800BD's output(Component video, S-Video and L/R Audio) to AVR3808s' DVD-in similar inputs and try recording onto your recorder.

Actually, its possible that you may be having a HDMI HDCP communication issue(High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) with the source product (DVD1800BD). First check with the source equipment manufacturer for any updates to their products.

If HDMI video is not passing through your AVR3808, you can connect it thru the alternate connection method I have mentioned above.

If the connections/recording still does not happen with the added anolog cables, then let me know , we can trouble shoot it further.
I hope the above helps.

Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

Output from Denon D-700?

Hi ...

If there's a tape monitor in/out on the D700,turn the tape monitor on and connect the "Play out" phono jacks on the 700 to the line-in on the computer. Spark up the turntable and you should be able to listen to the vinyl on the PC while recording.
