Check all connections and the balance settings. (Left / right/centre) If these are ok, the output system on the amp has probably failed. Denon are a good unit. See if there is an Agent or Amp specialist nearby that you can take it to.

I recently purchased a new Denon AVR-391 receiver and am having a problem hooking up my subwoofer. It seems that the Denon has a pre-out RCA looking output and my subwoofer uses conventional speaker wire. ...

Your sub-woofer apparently does not have an amplifier built into it. This type requires you to use your front left and front right speaker output to got through it to your regular speakers. It is called a passive sub-woofer for that reason.
To set it up, Connect your front speakers to the "output" of the sub. It should say "to speakers" on it.
Then connect the Speaker Outputs for the left front and right front on your Denon AVR-391 directly to the Sub. It should say on the back of the Sub "to amplifier".
Here is some theory you should know, if you don't already know it, that will help you get a satisfactory result in setting up this system.
There is a condition on setting up all speakers and subs that not everyone know. It's call "phase alignment". Phase alignment (A Good Thing) refers to all of the speakers in a system moving in the same direction (in and out) at the same instant in time. This gives you much clearer sound and better response from your sub-woofer.
Phase Cancellation (a bad thing) is when some of the speakers are moving out and other moving in during the very same instant in time. It causes problems in sound.
Here is how to handle it:
On the back of the receiver the speaker terminal outputs are colored Red and Black. Black is considered negative and Red is considered positive. On the back of the Sub woofer and on the speakers the same colors apply. MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS GO BLACK TO BLACK AND RED TO RED WHEN CONNECTING UP THE SPEAKER WIRES.
The system will work either way. But you will have severe bass loss if the woofer wiring is out of phase because of phase cancellation.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,

"Phase Cancellation"

The left side main output won't put out any sound on my Denon AVR-900.

connect your right speaker cable to the left output, if the sound comes out then the problem is on the left speaker ( the cable or the speaker itself ), but if still no sound, then the problem is on the power output of the unit, need to repair them

Denon avr-2500 left main speakers very quiet.

The Denon 2500 was one of the best ProLogic receivers built, it was a work horse and very little ever went wrong with them.
To make sure you're only supposed to hear right & left speakers, press the Stereo button on the remote. Also recheck your speaker connections - this is the single most overlooked connection problem folks have.
Check the balance control to make sure it's in the center position

Make sure the Tape Monitor is not engaged.

Then, check to make sure that the Pre-Out, Main-In jumpers are connected properly on the rear panel.
If that is not the problem, try pressing the Tone Direct button on the remote (aka Tone Defeat on the front panel).

Denon AVR-3300 Center Chanel Sound Problem

My guess is You have dried out electrolytic capacitors causing failure. These receivers when they get over 6 years old start drying out fluid in capacitors especially on regulator p.c.b. causing noisy supply lines. I work for Authorized service center in Michigan If you need repair and Shipping to Michigan is economical let me know

First, check your balance control and make sure that it is centered. Next, you might have anything from a bad output relay or fuse to a bad driver/component...accordianman
