It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.
When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.
If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.
If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.
On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".
If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.
I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.
If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.
If I can be of any further help, let me know.

SOURCE: Denon AVR 2106 clicking noise
I like when a user is observant and curious. That will help immensely in resolving this problem.
What source(s) are always involved with the problem?
You imply it is observable with output video to the TV - "only when there is movement on my tv screen and it stops in still screen". That sounds like a digital pathway problem of some sort as any data errors would eventually escalate to something audible or visible to you once the hardware and correction algorhythms are exhausted. The clicking inside the receiver could be its efforts to resynchronize with a bad data stream. Hence, I'd like you to isolate the ins and outs that fail all the time and find the probable single source of the problem.
Try this: put a digital source on and select/deselect it for listening or viewing. Does it make the click in that brief time it's 'thinking' before you hear the source? That would be the 'normal' sound. My Pioneer does it once per source switch. Repeated clicking would mean it's struggling.
I'm betting you have an optical or hdmi cable that's flaky or not in tight and straight. Or, if only one extternal source is involved we follow that back.

even if the wires are not touching they can still arch. make sure there is no bare wire showing ie. cannot see any unshielde speaker wires. id unplug then replug back in

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.
