Question about Denon AVR-1604 Receiver

No sound on digital inputs

Hi, When I have a digital input, either COAX or optic, I am not getting any sound in any mode. This includes stereo, 6 ch surround etc.
Analogue input and tuner is all OK, but only on stereo or direct but not in surround.

When I have a digital input, the 'digital' on the display is shown indicating a digital input, but nothing going to speakers.

The relays click in, but no sound on either speaker.

Test tone also not working.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Dave

    Thanks! FM works OK. both front speakers work. I have proved the speaker connection as when I put an external input into the 5.1 input all speakers work fine. I also tested with a friend that if I put an optic signal in and connect the optic out into his amp, it works OK.



    I suspect DSP card as there is no voltage on either speaker on the header to the CPU board. I tested this by putting the test tone on, and checking voltage.



    I have also verified the 5V regulator on the DSP board is OK.



    Any clues would be muchly appreciated!

Hi there, in regards to your problem the only thing i can think of is that you have to go to settings and select the channel for each digital output i.e. aux then optical 1 you must turn it on . then it should automatically switch to that when it detects the digityal signal.

First of all, you don't identifiy the hardware.

Second, DVD 6 CH INPUT is analog so how would the device KNOW if all 6 channels are present? ONLY a device with the required 6 analog channels should be connected there. That input typically bypasses ALL internal digital processing.

Elaborate more on the digital source(s) that are failing and assure us you have looked at/exhausted what the manual says for setting them up.

My surround sound speakers don't work. No power


LCD will display which speakers are active. And this depends on 2 things: the source signal and decoder mode.
If source signal is stereo, only front L+R speakers are used. For 5.1 signal (for example DVD over HDMI / optical/coax spdif) all speakers installed (which are not set to None) are used.
To listen to stereo input signal using all speakers, switch decoder to enhancer mode.

Most TV's have a MONITOR OUT connections, sometimes called audio out.

This may be either analogue (RED / WHITE) or digital (optical or coax) simply run these back to the receiver's input and you should be good. Many TV you have to go into the menu and disable your TV speakers and enable audio output.

Pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround


Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

Connecting new tv to DRA-685


you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).

Technics surround sound system


Use whatever TV sound output conforms to your receiver's input. If an optical or coaxial digital sound output is available, that is the way to get 5.1 surround sound through the SA-DX1050. But you have to assign the correct input (COAX, OPT1 or OPT2) to the selector (TV, DVD, CD). See pp 12-13 of the operationg instructions for D-Input instructions. If you don't have the manual you can download it at Panasonic.com.
