It's going into protect. Unhook ALL the speakers and see if it still shuts itself off. If so, then it will have to be taken in for service.

Blinking standby light on Denon

could be a couple things. Either a blown channel in the amp, or a bad voltage regulator. would have to investigate further with a meter to find out.

No power output or standby light flashes.

Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?

if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

Goes to standby with fast blinking red light after 5 seconds

From my experience you need to replace the Hi power module

Has power but keeps switching to standby

Disconnect all speakers at the receiver and turn it back on, if it stays on post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot further. If it still cuts out, it needs to go to service for repair. Hope this helps.

What is the master reset code for the denon avr 1508?

Turn the unit off by main switch (not a standby button).
Press and hold "Speakers-A" and "Speakers-B" buttons and turn on main switch.
Display blinks.
Release the buttons after 3 seconds.
Receiver is reseted.

Denon avr-2106 getting hot shutting down

Normally when this happens it is because the impedence load is too small. This unit requires 8 Ohm speakers. If you connect 4 Ohm speakers, it will work, but work harder and generate excessive heat. If the heat is too much, the unit will enter protect mode and shut down. Once it cools off, it will work again. In your case, if the speakers are the correct impedence, check for crossed wires. If that is the problem, running the unit at higher volume levels should cause it to shutdown sooner.

Keep us posted,
