Question about Denon AVR-1905 Receiver

1 Answer

Denon avr-1905 I have the 1905 Denon & about a month ago  it started to switch back & forth from Dig To analog. This was annoying because every time it did that the sound goes off. Well I turned it off for a couple days then back on & it worked fine for about 2 weeks & started it again. No it just stays in Analog & cuts off. This happens even when I listen to the radio. Is this unit dieing? is it worth having it fixed?

    i have the same problem as koma74. the unitis useless. i have done everything i can think of to fix it. gone through all the settings tried different connections even tried just using it as a pre-amp. i have descovered that sometimes just wacking it a few times on the top fixes it. if it doesnt help its the good old unplug and wait a few hours. briliant when your in the middle of watching a film. not good denon!

We have a DENON L.C twin transformer amplifier PMA-735R that has an input selector that freaks out now and again. Recently it has gotten worse, it just goes back and forth between tuner and cd etc. for...


Hi Readers to of Fixya,
This entry is January 22, 2016.
I own a Denon PMA 735R which I bought new in 1999, it is very good Amp; starting about a few years ago the input selector would occasionally randomly jump from CD to Phono to Tape etc., but would always end up back at CD so it was not terribly annoying until a few days ago when it started happening all the time. I am a very knowledgeable electronics person (I built musical keyboards at one time) so my thought was just that it was a dust problem and I started with that premise. I fixed it using an Electrical Parts Cleaner spray and here is how I did it:
I unplugged it, removed the CD input RCA cables and removed the L & R speaker cables and took it off its shelf and set it on a towel on my soft sofa; I removed the casing by unscrewing four big silver screws on the sides (my model is silver) and the three small black screws on the back top; I removed the Input Selector indicator knob on the front and the Record Out Selector indicator knob and the Volume knob, I then removed the small nut that holds the three of them tightly in place to the front panel; I then stood it on its back so that the front was facing up; I then sprayed my Electrical Parts Cleaner spray into the Input Selector indicator post liberally and then put the knob back in place and kept turning the indicator back and forth for a few minutes to work the cleaner inside the post down into the circuit board connection; I did the same with the Record Out Selector indicator post and I did the same with the Volume post; I then put the small nuts back on the three posts and tightened them; I then put the knobs back on the three posts; I then stood it back on its normal upright position and put the casing back on and then the screws; I placed back on its shelf and hooked up the cables and switched it back on and played my CD's, it has been working perfectly fine. The whole process took less than 30 minutes.I hope this helps.

I have a Denon 2800 hooked up to a Pioneer DV-C302D and while DVD's thru the Denon, the sound will come on and off. At the same time the Denon will be switching between analog and digital mode. Is one of...


It's a cable or connection.

The Denon apparently has an automatic selector to choose the digital input over the analog input if both are present (my Pioneer does this). The random switching is telling you the digital input is intermittently dropping out and coming back. You don't say if you're using the optical or coaxial digital interface. Coaxial is less prone to connection problems. If you use optical, make sure the ends are clicked in and there are no small radius bends in the cable. Tight curves reduce the optical power. Either way, check the connections and wiggle them to see if you can cause the problem to return.

If you've changed it's location or added speakers, or placed anything on top of it since the problem started then consider that it may just be over heating.
