Hi, I'd like to use my Denon receiver (AVR 1603/683) at overseas where the power source is 220V. Can I use 200W step down voltage transformer betwwen the 220V plug and the receiver?? Is it safe to operate without damage? Any other/better solution in order to work properly?

I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv. The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source. Hope that helps!
Had a similar issue, replaced the receiver three times in first month. The fourth time it had to go back to Denon. They returned it saying no fault. Also replaced HDMI cables etc...real head scratcher. Turns out it was the tv. The system can get discombobulated if the receiver, tv and source are not sequenced correctly. This is due to the HDMI protocol, Power up sequence should be receiver, source tv. Once video is lost it has to be rest. With system powered up and tv displaying no signal, remove HDMI cable at tv. Turn off tv at outlet and leave of for 2 minutes (this rests HDMI port, important to leave off long enough!.). Turn tv on and reconnect HDMi...all should be good.
Poor Denon, I blamed them when it was my Sony Braiva all along....bad Sony
hi there, i don't have a solution unfortuantely, but i may have the same problem. I have a denon 2802 av receiver, i bought it second hand and I can't seem to get the component video in / out working. Are you supposed to just plug it in and it works? Because I can't find any buttons or settings to select component in / out as my input / output sources?
Check the polarity (+/-) of the speaker wires. A typical receiver will try to cut the power to the speaker if it's feeding it too much power or too little power to preserve the speaker and/or receiver. That may be the clipping you're hearing. If the wires are reversed, this can cause the same thing.
Your unit was probably damaged in shipping. Denon is a nice unit! Do you hear any clicks when you hit the power button??? You should hear two relay clicks. You should hear the power relay click at power on and 3 to 5 seconds later you should hear the speaker protection relay click if your audio amp section is ok. If you hear both relays click then your display circuit is at fault. Open the unit and look for breaks on the front pcb (behind the display) and on the main board in the power section ( where the fuses are ). Good Luck!
