Denon AVR-4802 multi-zone problem.

I can't get sound out of my rear speakers when the amp assignment is switched to multi-zone. I suspect it has to do with the volume in the zone but have no way to adjust it other than the menu options: variable, -40, 0. The original remote is long gone. I've been using a Harmony 670 but I can't find a multi-zone volume adjustment on it. Unless anyone has the solution my next step is to find a dealer and try to ''learn'' the commands.

I had the same questions and still can't believe there isn't more information on the topic. It's crazy how much marketing Denon devotes to their Multi-Zone features yet offers very little reference materials on the actual set up. I guess most customers don't use the fearture? Here you go:

-The Multi-Zone on the Denon 4802 is analog only. If you are running digital coax or fiber you will have to run a second line that's analog (eg RCA red/white) from the source to the Denon in order for the signal to to make it to the Zone 2 speakers (regardless if it's Pre-Amp out or direct connect to the Zone 2 speakers from the multi/SB speaker outs. Regarding the Harmony question, I had the same problem with my Harmony 880 and wasn't able to find an answer after multiple searches. Luckily I figured it out when I deleted the receiver from the Logitec device list and started over. Connect the remote to your computer, launch the Logitec Harmony Remote Software, click the Devices tab, hit the Add Device, pick the device type & manufacturer from the drop down list, enter "AVR-4802" under Model and finally hit the Next button in the lower right corner of the UI. The next page solves the Harmony Zone 2 control problem. You will see a message "To use your device in additional zones/rooms, click the checkbox...." Make sure Room 2 is checked (mine was not), update the remote and you're done. The Harmony Device menu you will now contain a second receiver icon called "receiver 2." Hit "device" on the Harmony, choose "receiver 2" and you will gain control over Zone 2 including volume.

Good luck!

Are you running a 5.1 surround sound setup? Be sure you set amp assignment to surround speakers Not Rear surround speakers, this is disabled when multi zone is assigned to 2 zone setups

Switches off after five seconds.AVR-590


There are a few things that could be causing this to happen. The first thing you should do is check all the speaker wires connected to see if they might be touching each other somewhere. What you are describing sounds like there might be a short. Also, is the receiver well ventilated? What is happening is that it is protecting itself but shutting off.The 590 is going in to Protection Mode due to some fault it perceives. The quick flashing red power light (as opposed to a slower flashing light) would indicate either speaker wires touching another terminal, driving 4 ohm speakers to loud, or amp failure.

Denon avr-1603 switches itself off


HI,
Fist of all you have to disconnect all the speakers From AVR. Then switch ON the AVR . If its working normally then any of the speaker or any of the wire to the speaker is faulty. If so connect the speaker back one by one and check on which speaker connection does the AVR shuts off. That speaker or the wire to the speaker is faulty.

If the AVR is not functioning properly even after removing the speakers(shuts off) then there is internal fault with the amplifiers stage. Normally Dry soldering on the amplifier circuit board or any of the output stage is faulty. To rectify the same need professional support.

I was given a Denon AVC 3020 amp that was connected to a Denon AVR 1082 receiving. The receiver is working fine but I can't seem to reconnect the amp back nor can I use the amp independently from the...


So you want to slave the 3020 to the 1082, right? Use the Pre-outs on the AVR to feed the amp. I imagine the AVR manual, which I cannot find, talks about that.

Protection circuit operates when CD is played


are you playing a cd which you recorded at a higher level? if so, you are overdriving the amp. you may want to check some of the setup menu items which could contribute to this. it also could be caused by a driver or component in a speaker which is getting maxxed out, which is easier to do with the cd source than any other in some cases. denon protection circuits are quite sensitive. good luck

Denon AVR 1706 Powers on display then shuts off lght blinks red


replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. i had the exact same problem with mine and once i replaced the capacitors it powered up and stayed on and worked perfect.
these capacitors tend to fail as they're of poor quality.
this fault is very common on denon receivers, especially the later models.

hope this helps?

1-check sound input source(dvd -tuner-deck)and confirm that amplifier is assigned to sound source-you must check source with it is cabels.
2-check sound output with it is cabels(speakers).
3-if every thing is fine your amp has a problem and needs to go to service center.
