Question about Denon AVR-4308CI Receiver

1 Answer

No surround back channel - damage during transport

Have a Denon AVR 4308 Receiver - updated to Version 4308A. Bought the receiver three weeks ago and it has transported in a bag by plane where it has been dropped. The back panel is slightly bend where the speakers are connected. All is working except the surround channel back right. As I am living in a remote destination sending it back to the dealer or Denon is not an option. Any idea how to check what is broken and eventually how to fix it? Measured already with a voltmeter - no output at that channel. All other channels are working fine despite being pressed in around 4mm more.

    Thanks for your feedback pinout. Will try to take it apart and check the board. I have previous experience in electronics but photos of the inside would help so I know what to expect. Any idea where to find those?

    Thanks! As far as I can see the plastic strip has to be broken??? Is that a warranty seal as it is fitted without screws? Thanks so much for your valuable assistance!!!

I think your receiver has cracked main (amplifier) board close to surround back channel terminals. Need to take apart the receiver remove the board, inspect it and resolder cracked traces. Unfortunately it is not so easy to remove that board and probably you need to bring it to a repair shop.

    Have no picture but here is an instruction.
    Unscrew, disconnect and remove front panel.
    Remove 10 screws at binding post terminals located on back panel under plastic strip.
    Remove screws of main board and screws of heatsink. detach connectors from main board. Carefully pull main board with heatsink toward front of the unit. You will need to cut several plastic clampers keeping the wires. Good luck.

"Video Select -It is not possible to select HDMI input signals. • When playing HDMI video input signals, the analog video signal of another input source cannot be selected for the HDMI video output."

I just received a Denon AVR-4308ci receiver. I have two passive subs in my system. The receiver only has one powered output. Since I am not using the surround back speaker outputs can I use these for the...


Sure, if you want to hear Surround Back program material coming from the subs without midrange or tweeters. (Sarcastic) Of course, the LFE program material will still be going into a black hole somewhere.

Run the subs in series with each other -
Sub Amp negative to 1st speaker negative;
1st speaker positive to 2nd speaker negative;
2nd speaker positive to amp positive.

Run the speaker level adjustments routine and enjoy.

Just for giggles, try what you were thinking about. You won't hear much from the sub(s) unless you programmed the Surround Back channel as full-range and then have something like the Apollo 13 launch for program material. Normal audio won't send much low-frequency material to those channels. The optimal place for subs is on the LFE or sub channel.

5ch/7ch stereo in 5 channel mode


Front panel button engaged for 5 or 7 channel operation? Also check front panel rear surround speakers button is engaged. Should get you back to 7.1 unless you have changed the rear surround speaker setup for a 2nd zone, also be sure you have a 7.1 DSP setting enabled.

Check the center channel speaker and the surround sound audio settings. If you do not have a center speaker, it needs to be set to off on the receiver.

Denon 4308


ok sounds simple you ran the lines threw the tv instead all lines should be ran threw the sterio

see once you turn tv off this cuts the outputs out so now no sound will happen
your sterio should be equipted to take inputs of tv
you want everything to be inputed threw receiver thats why they call it a receiver the outputs on tv goto inputs on receiver
you need to redo your wireing so that this which i described is correct again

Loss of sound on the Denon AVR 2807 a/v surround receiver when I turn on and off lights in my house


Finally the problem was with the HDMI cable. When I pushed it in on the TV set the problem disappeared. It seems the connections must be quite firm on the HDMI cables otherwise anything may interfere to the sound.
