Question about Denon AVR-3300 Receiver

1 Answer

Intermittent audio output

The AVR-3300 will work great for a while then loses audio output when I switch sources. I've discovered when I wiggle the Adio/DSP card the sound comes back. But then the problem repeats, sometimes hours, sometimes days later. I examined the board and found what appeared to be an intermittent ground connection and thought I had it fixed. But a week or so later the problem returned. I'm using it in analog mode only, so the problem apparently has nothing to do with digital processing. Any help appreciated! Ken

Re: Intermittent audio output

It's quite possible one of the relays is failing that is part of the switch between audio output choices.  Do you notice any output difference between a certain output (i.e. dvd, tape etc)or is that point arbitrary?

I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv.
The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source.
Hope that helps!

No sound from new sony bravia to denon avr 1610

TV's are not your best source of audio. Get the TV-related audio digitally from the source, NOT the TV.

Denon AVR-3300 component channel switch burnout?

hi there, i don't have a solution unfortuantely, but i may have the same problem. I have a denon 2802 av receiver, i bought it second hand and I can't seem to get the component video in / out working. Are you supposed to just plug it in and it works? Because I can't find any buttons or settings to select component in / out as my input / output sources?

Harman Kardon AVR 325 randomly switching inputs

Step one would be to ascertain exactly what the failure mode is - which input(s) aggravate it, what kind of connection, etc. Narrow the scope a bit.

The clicking and fickering sound like it's struggling with an intermittent source connection. When it starts flickering see if you can change the problem by wiggling the cables one at a time.

Do any of your video sources have multiple attachment types connected at the same time, say, hdmi and component, but to different assigned inputs?
