Denon AVR-3801 lights up,makes rapid clicking noises when amp tries to turn on. Clicking stops but unit doesn't play & sometimes the unit turns off. Occurred after lightning storm. What to do to fix?

Probably damaged by power surge. If you do not have experience diagnosing and repairing electronic circuits as well as having access to schematic diagrams then this is not a repair for you. Failure to replace all damaged components may result in damaging new parts.

I have a Denon AVR-3801 but the remote is broken. Where do I send it for repair?

Remotes aren't worth repairing; they're replacement items.

A universal remote is the easiest to obtain.

Original replacements may or may not be available for this older equipment. Try contacting Denon customer support. If they have one, you may have to order it through a local dealer.

If you really want the original remote, maybe you can find a local tech who can check the battery connections and the output LED and possible fix it - but expect to spend $50 or more.

Poor DTS/DD5.1 from the AVR-3801

I also run 2 AVR 3801`s in my home, These are nice receivers, excellent build quality, about the DTS and DD 5.1 not up to par, I would check the Menu speaker set-up, be sure and make sure you have rear surrounds set up at surround speakers, NOT the rear speakers, they are for a 7.1 configuration, then set up the white noise test signal to balance all 6 channels, you need to have the powered subwoofer balanced properely, if no results of improvement then check your digital connections, I would recomment the fibre-optic, but the coaxial works also with great seperation signal, last I would investigate the playback unit of the DVD or DTS CD player, something in your set-up is amiss and you can acheive outstanding surround with this model of Denon, I can attest to this for my past experience setting up HT systems even with High End Outboard processors I always am amazed at the 3801 output quality, remember the 5 ch stereo is a Matrix DSP not even close to a true digital sound, and as for more amp power sure it always helps to have extra but the 3801 are true 105w @ 8 ohm 0.05 THD and are real, should power you Missions, the next level are denons 4800`s and 5800`s at 125 and 175 but I would stick with the 3800 and be content. Hope you have some better results after tweaking your settings.

How to switch the Danon AVR 3801 sub woofer on with remot control

What you are going to have to do is somehow get this to a monitor, and use the remote "setup" to get to amp assignment where the subwoofer yes/no option is located.
