Try pressing and holding the "tuner preset ch +" and "tune - " buttons and pressing power. The entire display should light up and blink. This should stop the firmware retry loop.

Denon AVR-3801 lights up,makes rapid clicking noises when amp tries to turn on. Clicking stops but unit doesn't play & sometimes the unit turns off. Occurred after lightning storm. What to do to fix?


Probably damaged by power surge. If you do not have experience diagnosing and repairing electronic circuits as well as having access to schematic diagrams then this is not a repair for you. Failure to replace all damaged components may result in damaging new parts.

HOW TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE


There may not be any facility to update the firmware for this model without taking to the service center. This model does not have any device input like SD card or internet connection that would enable download of firmware upgrade. The later Denon models have this capability.

You will have to consult the local Denon service center for advise.

I have a denon avr-400 receiver. When running a firmware update, i got the error message: Connection fail:03. Now, my receiver is not working. stuck in this endless cycle of failure messages. Help


Hello,

Unfortunately a failed firmware update will result in an inoperative unit. The solution is to update the firmware directly to the chip. Not a DIY solution. A local Denon repair center will be equipped to do that for a nominal fee. Your unit is a bit older to get much help from the main company.
If you are handy you need a chip burner and the proper setup and then force the firmware onto the chip. Lot of computer guys may have that around to help.

Good luck

Denon AVR-1912 firmware upgrade failed


I'm having the same problem, Denon has taken down the firmware upgrade for yours ( and mine) AVR-1912. My receiver is also stuck in the update fail loop. Supposedly they will have it back up, but I don't know the timeframe.

Lots of others are having the problem with the firmware upgrade. Go to
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1334369/the-official-denon-avr-xx12-model-owners-thread/16380

and that should help you out, though I can't say how much. I've gone as far as resetting the microprocessor, but it keeps trying to update, and then fails...

My AVR 391 goes on Standby and freezes there.


Seems you cannot fix this issue yourself. If the unit is still under warranty, Denon will replace a chip which has a flawed firmware. The unit cannot be updated remotely and a physical repair is necessary.

Sound and video goes out periodically for a a couple of seconds every few minutes. Power stays on, all sound and video stops.


I am assuming you are connected HDMI?
This is a common problem when connected with HDMI. HDMI checks for HDCP codes every three seconds and if it doesnt get the proper response from the devices or repeater (amp) it will drop the connection and ask again in 3 seconds. If it receives the proper key it will display the signal again.
Have you tried the firmware update? http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-4308CIFirmwareUpdate-Web1128.pdf
I hate to say this but HDMI is not perfect yet so there may not be a solution to this except to drop your inputs and outputs to component video and digital audio. The only source that will be effected from a resolution stand point is a BluRay which can only display 720p or 1080i (not 1080p) when ran through component video.

Denon AVR-3806 keeps losing video signal. The audio signal is still good. What could be the problem?


If your using HDMI, pull it from the receiver and run directly to the TV, then run optical or digital coaxial to your receiver. It's referred to in the industry as a "Handshake" issue. It has to do with firmware and hardware of your receiver and continuous ridiculous updates from the recording industry to protect copyright. Hope this helps. If you still have issues, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot further.
