Question about Denon AVR-5805 Receiver

Main Zone not Working

I have the Main zone and Zone 2 in use with Zone 3/4 dormant...while watching TV today the Main just went dead. Zone 2 continues to work fine with no issues. No sound at all comes out for the Main. I have unplugged the power cords for 20 minutes and the issue remains. Any help would be appreciated.

VERY nice system! But, it practically needs a cooling system of its own! So, the very FIRST thing to check is to make certain there is plenty of OPEN SPACE around the receiver. SECOND: Make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (Denon says 6 ohms is okay; I still recommend 8.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Your Denon's internal overload protection system is designed to do precisely what it is doing, to prevent permanent damage. In general, shutting-down, then re-powering the system after several minutes usually resets it. However, if there is a problem, this will continue, AND YOU RUN THE RISK OF DOING SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE MACHINE!] Before you take this monster in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. With as many as 22 speakers connected, this could take some time. But it MIGHT be worth it. 1) Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! 2) If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the left front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Denon is a very respected brand, and will give you a LIFETIME of service. Hopefully one of these simple fixes will work for you. GOOD LUCK!

zone 2 volume can be adjusted by zone2 remote control (small one which came with the unit) or by main remote control if you switch it to zone2 mode. My main rem control has a slide switch i have to put in zone 2 position to operate zone 2 amp.

I want to output blu ray dvd output in zone 2. Denon AV 4308

correct. in order to enjoy your digital sources in any zone2 configuration, an additional connection has to be made to the analog input from and for each of these devices.
some receivers wont allow internal xm, sirius and ipods to work in zone2 because they are input to the digital board and thats what your stuck with.

My Denon AVR2308 is frustrating me. I am running two zones (5.1 in main and zone 2 out of rear surround). I have made the audio setting to allow Zone 2 on/off, but i am stuck on how to turn sound off in...

Unfortunately the AVR2308 does not have the zone 2 video output connector needed to pass video to a second zone. The AVR2808 was the first receiver in that year lineup to offer a video output to a second zone. There are many different types of video outputs on that receiver, but they are all associated with the Main zone. This is why you loose the video when you shut down the Main zone. With respect to your Zone 2; the small remote that came with the receiver should have all the power and volume features you need to operate Zone 2 while keeping the Main zone turned off. The only audio that can be passed to Zone 2 though has to be in an analogue format (using the red and white RCA connections). This receiver does not pass digital audio onto Zone 2. Best of luck!

Denon AVR-2309C1 will not play sound through

Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot

How do I set a LaCrosse WT-961 (B) watch?

This watch automatically sets itself. I you live in the eastern time zone, you just have to wait for the watch to receive the signal then it will set itself to the correct time & date. The signal is strongest at night between the hours of 10:00 pm & 2:00 am so it normally takes over night to set. Sometimes the weather interferes with the signal so I tell people to give them a couple of days to pick up. Also if you are having trouble receiving the signal try placing the watch by a window. If you do not live in the eastern time zone try these instructions:

Hold down the button for 2 seconds until the time zone abbreviation & zone flash the keep pressing the button until your correct time zone is displayed. Then wait about 8 seconds for the watch to return to normal display. Then you just have to wait until it picks up the signal & sets itself. I hope this helps.
