Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders
When I push the standby switch to turn on the receiver it turns green, then flashes a few times and I hear a click, then it turns red (off)

This is a very common problem with denon receivers of the 2001-2-3 vintage. On almost every one, there are 4 little "surge" resistors in the power supply. These werent quite robust enough from the factory and one day would just burn open for no reason. Well, actually there is a reason, the "surge" that happens every time you power the unit up eventually weakens the resistors and then they pop. You need to take this to a denon service shop as I GUARANTEE they have seen this before. They need to check resistors in the picture, locarde above the **** rectangular connector. Resistors numbers R141, 142, 148, 149: These resistors when measured, should be less than 10 ohms each. If they are more, then they are blown. If they are blown, then have the shop check the channels for blown output transistors. If the outputs are OK, then these resistors should be replaced with 1 ohm 1/2 watt metal -film flameproof resistors. You might need to be prepared for a large bill, because the entire unit must come apart to replace the resistors, however, just checking them takes only about 10 minutes... Good luck and don't try this at home. Rob

If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.
It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.
I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.
I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).
I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.
Just waiting for them to arrive.
An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.
Hope thats of use!

It's probably NOT the capacitor.
I repair these kind of things for a living.
It's most likely a power transistor or two.
And it shouldnt cost 300 to fix either..Unless the tech is incompetent.
Dont let someone rip you off

Did you try to reset the unit? Resetting the unit has fixed every problem I have ever had......turn off unit.....hold down A+B at the same time then turn the unit back on...hold buttons for roughly 3 seconds....Let me know if it works.
