Denon AVR5805, main zone not working

The main zone is not working on my Denon AVR5805. 

It appears that it defaulted to “Zone 2” output only. When I select the DVD for the audio source it displays:

DVD :Ext.IN-1  Multi CH IN.  Before, it always displayed the DVD for the main as I named it.   Other menus (OSD, Parameter, Setup) also appear to indicate just for Zone 2.  I have tried with no success to restore to main.

Is there are reset or a way to restore or go back to the main zone?

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-4802R automatically shuts off in multi-zone mode

i had the volume of the multi-zone tuned too high and was attenuating it in an external control box. Once i took the multi-zone volume down to -25db, the problem went way. My main zone was operating around -35db so did not have the problem.

SOURCE: Denon AVR-2105

If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working

time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals

now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working

If no sound coming through Zone 2, steps that worked are below. Layout: Denon AVR-988 running in 5.1 mode with patio speakers designated as Zone 2: 1) check that patio speaker wires are connected to Denon's back surround speaker terminals, 2) check "Menu then "Manual Setup" and scroll to check that "Amp Assign function is set to "Zone 2". You won't get Zone 2 sound unless this is chosen in this instance. Also check the volume settings in the "Manual Setup" to ensure you haven't turned sound down by -40 DB or limited it. Now try turing on Zone 2 sound either on front panel or on rear of remote. If you still have no sound, what worked for me is there's a Zone 2/Rec Out pushbutton on front left top panel by round input knob. This must be set to "Zone 2 Source" and not "Rec Out Source".to avoid diverting the signal to the Rec Out jacks. Keep turning the input select button until it reads "Zone 2 Source". Then turn on and this should route the signal to your Zone 2 speakers. srhfish

I had the unit set to a second zone that ran into a splitter for four different areas of my house. The second zone is not working, how do I test to see if it is the denon unit or the splitter ?


Plug something other than Zone 2 into the splitter, say, any tape out on the Denon. Keep it simple. Play FM.

When and if THAT works go back to the manual and analyze why Zone 2 isn't working. Observe the Zone 2 Output indicator. (Page 5)

You must have a TV or other speaker-capable device that you can run Zone 2 OUT to. Try that to prove your setup works.

I want to output blu ray dvd output in zone 2. Denon AV 4308


correct. in order to enjoy your digital sources in any zone2 configuration, an additional connection has to be made to the analog input from and for each of these devices.
some receivers wont allow internal xm, sirius and ipods to work in zone2 because they are input to the digital board and thats what your stuck with.

My Denon AVR2308 is frustrating me. I am running two zones (5.1 in main and zone 2 out of rear surround). I have made the audio setting to allow Zone 2 on/off, but i am stuck on how to turn sound off in...


Greetings,
Unfortunately the AVR2308 does not have the zone 2 video output connector needed to pass video to a second zone. The AVR2808 was the first receiver in that year lineup to offer a video output to a second zone. There are many different types of video outputs on that receiver, but they are all associated with the Main zone. This is why you loose the video when you shut down the Main zone. With respect to your Zone 2; the small remote that came with the receiver should have all the power and volume features you need to operate Zone 2 while keeping the Main zone turned off. The only audio that can be passed to Zone 2 though has to be in an analogue format (using the red and white RCA connections). This receiver does not pass digital audio onto Zone 2. Best of luck!

Denon avr 3805 2 zone configuration, I added optical sound from TIVO and now zone 2 is not working. I did the test of the speakers and they all work. I have configured the main for 5 channel stereo.


Zone 2 needs an analog input to work, if you pulled the analog from tivo, put it back on. Digital will not pass on zone 2. If your analog is still connected as well, go into your receivers settings for audio and select "auto" not "digital" Check the settings on tivo as well. make sure it's audio output is set to "auto" if available. If it's not, it's default is "auto" and will output simeltaneously on all outputs. Hope this helps. If you need more help, post a comment and I will help some more.

Denon AVR 1609 Receiver Zone 2 has no sound


you have to change the power amp assignment to zone 2, you must also have Analog audio connections to the Denon from your devices.
Try this put your remote in the zone 2 mode, select tuner in zone 2 and turn zone 2 volume up to -10

Denon AVR 883 Audio glitch


More than likely the protector circuit is getting activated... You can't go below 6 ohms on the surround back which means you need 12 ohm or higher speakers for outside (since the two outputs for surround back/zone2 are in parallel). As a simple diagnostic test, disconnect one speaker and see if the sound survives longer than 2 seconds.
