Denon DRA325R Bad Reception

My Denon DRA325R receiver has served me well since 1990. A couple years ago, the tuner lost its ability to pick up all but one or two FM channels. The EURAS site references a "continuous swith over MONO/STEREO. Resembles bad reception." problem, but I don't think that is the problem my receiver has.... Any thoughts on what it might take to fix it are highly appreciated. Thanks.

SOURCE: My AM radio reception does not work. I have a loop

You should buy an antenna amplifier. Here are some that work in-line and are designed specifically for AM radio:

SOURCE: FM antenna is not providing

If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

My better guess is a CMOS chip is either bad or there is a cold solder connection in the vicinity. If the power supply is bad, the receiver would not power up.

Intermittent Audio when set on "tuner"

You may have to ( first unplug it from the wall) then pull the top case.
Locate the tuner board , it will be the one with the antenna connections sticking out the rear of the rec'r.
If there's some way to pull the circuit board up and out of a socket/sockets , try that and re-install it.

Other than that I may be able to help you find a good tech.

Denon AVR 1705-no audio on TV

I have had the same problem and was told that it is a "board" inside. Essentially it has lost the surround sound ability and can only play things in Direct/Stereo. Mine is just over 2 years and I originally thought my kids had hit a button on the thing causing the issue...ended up paying $100 to trouble shoot it and confirm that it is internal and more expensive to fix than replace. Can't say that I will be buying a Denon again.
