Denon AVR-1705 no sound to speakers but will to Headphones

I've been using the Denon AVR-1705 for 2 years now, and the audio out to the speakers no longer works, I've tried it on multiple inputs. There isn't even a faint hiss. However I can get audio out from the headphone jack on the front. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Do you have the tape monitor selected?
    Are there any Internal menu settings that are stopping the speakers?

    Let me know...Thanks

I have repaired many of these Denon receivers over the last few years.

Since the headphones work, that means if you dis-connect the speakers it will turn on and not go into protect (when power cuts off a few seconds after turning the unit on).

The most likely problem is a bad speaker. to find out which speaker is causing the problem, do this.

Start out with just one speaker connected and then turn on the unit. If it turns on and plays music, you know that speaker is good.
Now turn the unit off again and add another speaker and keep the first speaker connected. Once again, if the unit plays, that speaker is also good.

Keep doing this same procedure one speaker at a time. As soon as you connect a speaker and then try to turn on the unit and it goes into protect, the speaker you just connected is bad.

To confirm that this speaker is the bad speaker, dis-connect all speakers and only plug the suspected bad speaker into a speaker jack that worked with one of the other speakers.
If the unit still goes into protect you know then that you have found the bad speaker.

If the unit still goes into protect, that speaker is bad and you will need to take it in for repair or replace it.
make sure you use 8 ohm speakers. if i remember correctly these Denons can use 6 ohm speakers, but those are harder to find and most home speakers are 8 ohms.

If the unit does not go into protect and that suspected bad speaker plays in one of the other speaker jacks, what you really have is a bad channel in the amplifier, the channel that the suspected bad speaker was previously connected to.

If you find out you have a bad channel, you will need to take it in to an repair center. Preferably an authorized Denon service center. There are not very many of those around. I work at the only authorized Denon service center in the entire state of Michigan.

If I can be of more assistance, don't hesitate to ask. And a good rating is always appreciated. :)

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working

If no sound coming through Zone 2, steps that worked are below. Layout: Denon AVR-988 running in 5.1 mode with patio speakers designated as Zone 2: 1) check that patio speaker wires are connected to Denon's back surround speaker terminals, 2) check "Menu then "Manual Setup" and scroll to check that "Amp Assign function is set to "Zone 2". You won't get Zone 2 sound unless this is chosen in this instance. Also check the volume settings in the "Manual Setup" to ensure you haven't turned sound down by -40 DB or limited it. Now try turing on Zone 2 sound either on front panel or on rear of remote. If you still have no sound, what worked for me is there's a Zone 2/Rec Out pushbutton on front left top panel by round input knob. This must be set to "Zone 2 Source" and not "Rec Out Source".to avoid diverting the signal to the Rec Out jacks. Keep turning the input select button until it reads "Zone 2 Source". Then turn on and this should route the signal to your Zone 2 speakers. srhfish

You need to do digital input assignment. Go to SETUP, DIGITAL INPUT ASSIGNMENT, set OPTICAL 1 for your input (DVD).

SOURCE: Analog output from digital input for Denon AVR 3803

On the Denon AVR-888 (and I presume others), you have to put the unit in "record" mode. This is covered under "Other Operations and Functions" in the manual. Here are the steps:
1. On the front of the unit, press the zone2/rec select button
2. Turn source select until "recout source" is displayed
3. Turn source select to choose the input source

Hope this helps.

Denon receiver problems


Check sound from headphones. These models have been known to have bad headphone jacks that make the unit think there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. Sometimes just plugging in headphones and unplugging them will fix it for a while.

Try plugging is a set of headphones and then unplugging them. These models have a problem with the headphone jack thinking that there is headphones plugged in even when there isn't. This will mute all audio to the speakers.

I have a Denon AVR 1705 and can get a tv picture and no sound or sound with no picture. Is there a setting or selection that I am missing to have both.


Sounds like the sound inputs have been reassigned to another input-

You'll ideally need the instructions to give a fuller idea of how you adjust these and all the options it gives you

My very old Denon AV Receiver (DRA-55V) works fine except that one of the channels sounds 'gated' or thuddy and staticy...music is heard (in all sets of speakers and headphones) but quality in one channel...


check your speaker A - B channel push-button switchces. They tend to get worn and contacts internally corroded after all these years <!-- from fixya rte -->

I have a Denon AVR-488..Can you help?


Sounds like you may be clipping your speakers. Check all speaker connections and make sure they are not touching, at all. If you are not using speaker ends and are simply twisting the wire and connecting to the speakers, just one strand touching the other post will cause this. Good Luck

Denon AVR-1705 Missing Video Functions?


Hello,

What you need to do is connect all your devices to the Denon Using the best connections (Yellow Video=OK, S-Video=good, Component green-red-blue=better and HDMI=best. if you do not have a DVD that upconverts to 1080i or p when using HDMI, I would use component cables where available from your devices to the Denon other wise use the next best connection available and if connecting digital audio make a chart of all connection so you can setup everything when your ready for programming the Denon

Denon AVR 1705-no audio on TV


I have had the same problem and was told that it is a "board" inside. Essentially it has lost the surround sound ability and can only play things in Direct/Stereo. Mine is just over 2 years and I originally thought my kids had hit a button on the thing causing the issue...ended up paying $100 to trouble shoot it and confirm that it is internal and more expensive to fix than replace. Can't say that I will be buying a Denon again.

Denon AVR-3600, Sound issue on one side only


sounds like you may have a bad tweeter in your speaker. change the right and left speakers and see if the problem persists in that same speaker. if so, you have a bad speaker.
