Re: The AVR-3300 power-off to stand-by mode

You have a blown amp or a leaky cap and the unit is going in to save mode to avoid destrying the unit.

Take it in for a repair. I don't think it should run more than $50-$75 for a fix depending on what component is bad.

AVR 270 Receiver turns itself off immediately

Disconnect all speakers from Zone 1 and see if it stays on. If it does, you have a short on a speaker (probably cable). If not, you might have a blown output transistor on Zone 1. I have a DENON that I am fixing that does this, but only when I turn up volume. Creepy. Good luck !

Hum created by Denon AVR-3300

Look for bad electrolytic capacitors. Swollen up on top or leaking, puffed out on bottom. If they look alright, you will need a capacitor tester to see if any have dried up. That's the first thing I check for hum.

Unit turns on for about 5 seconds and turns off with stand by light flashing

you have shorted output transistors which is causing the unit to go into protect mode. You can try factory reset by turning off unit then holding down speaker a and b buttons then turning back on.

Denon AVR-3300 has a buzz from all 5 speakers during warm up.

Depending on the location you're living, try to connect a good ground to your system might solve the problem

Unit''trips'' off shortly after powering up

Disconnect ALL of the speaker wires from the back.  Turn it on again, if it still trips, then the unit needs to be repaired.  If it does not trip with no speaker wires connected, turn it back off, connect 1 speaker at a time and turn it on, when it does trip, that speaker that you just put on has a short somewhere, it could the be the wire or in the speaker.
