Pull the top on the receiver; it's usually 7 or 8 small phillips screws. Once you pull the top, look where the AC cord enters the unit. (make sure it's unplugged) and there should be one or two fuses. If they are coated fuses, you need a meter to tell you if they are good or bad. Put a meter on resistance/tone and your probes on either side of the fuse, if you hear a tone, the fuse is good, if you don't touch the two probes together to test your tone and check again, if still no tone, you have a bad fuse. You should be able to get a replacement at Radio Shack or any Electronics Parts store. If your fuses are good, you've got a service issue and it needs to go out for repair. Hope this helps

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.

Denon AVR-1908 won't power on

Are you getting a standby light at all? Is it flashing? Do you here a click when you plug the unit in? If the answer is no to all of these then you blew a fuse. If you do have soome sort of standby light, then your set is in protect mode. More than likely for a blown channel. If no lights, but you ar egetting a click, you could have a bad transformer. Use a DVM and see if it is open or not. Good luck

Standby light is on but will not power,just keeps flashing up power on then go back to standby.

Try disconnecting everything from the Denon including the power. Leave it off all night. Next morning plug in the power only and see if it will come up ok. Then power down (into standby), connect the other stuff and power on.

Standby flashing

Thats the protection circuit kicking in, overheating is rarely the problem, check your speaker wires for shorts. If it does that with nothing connected you have a bad amp board :(

Denon avr-2106 problem!!!

You're drawing too much power from it. Sounds like maybe your sub is hooked up wrong, double check that.

It happens sometime with low voltages. Try putting in a voltage stablizer in the path and test it. If it works, get a high quality component to give you correct voltage.
