Denon AVR-1803 shuts down

Hello Gents,

Recently, after 3+ years of ownership, my Denon AVR-1803 shuts down after about 10-20 minutes of viewing a DVD. I can power it back up, then it usually shuts down again, usually after about 10 more minutes, but sometimes longer. What's going on here? Why is it doing that? It has plenty of ventilation/air circulation, is not exposed to sunlight, and is not played at loud levels.

Also, when viewing some DVD's, even newly released ones, it choses "stereo dvd" or "Dolby D" instead of letting me chose other options like PLII. What's the reason for that?

Thanks for your anticipated response.

    Ditto, here. My unit shuts itself off at will. Pressing the "on" button on the remote turns it back on again -- but this is frustrating.

I am a Tech in Michigan and have worked on lots and Lots of Denon AV Receivers. These units have Protection circuits for Overcurrent, Dc Protect, 15v Regulator inbalance, Rail Voltage Inbalance, Low Ac Voltage, Low Standby Voltage and Thermal Protection just to name the ones I remember. My guess is you Probably have either Poor Intermittent solder connections or Amp is not Ventillating Properly. Make sure you leave room above Receiver to Vent and You are using no Less then 6 ohm speaker Impedance per ch. Refer to Speaker Impedance chart on back panel . kstahl65@att.net

My receiver will sometimes quit having surround sound in the TV mode. The guy I bought it from usually gives me an easy sequence to follow to turn it back on, but he has left town. Thanks

The reciever has built in overvoltage and overcurrent sensing, its similar to the lm78 monitering chip you find on many pcmotherboards, unfortunately it could be the chip itself causing the problem or one of the other symptoms is causing the reciever to shut down. check all cabling, check your electrical power source. I.E. ,I just had a weird problem with my PC 0ne of the cooling fans was drawing to much current and it was causing intermittent symptoms.

How can I connect my I pod Touch to my Denon AVR 1803 receiver?


The best way to connect an older IPod or other MP3 player to the AVR-1803 is to use a 3.5 mm (M) to RCA audio cable. This will work for audio on all IPods (and video on some of the older IPods). Here's an example: http://www.amazon.com/3-5mm-Audio-Video-Cable-iPod/dp/B000STBSU4 . Connect the 3.5 mm end to the headphone jack; the RCA plugs go into one of the AVR-1803 RCA inputs.

For some IPods, try a connector like this: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Unlimited-iPod-Connector-Cable/dp/B000CBFVXS . This connects to the docking port on the IPod.

I hope this helps.

Connect the 3.5mm cable to the iPod headphone output and the two RCA plugs into any unused analogue audio input on the Denon AVR 1803. Then choose the appropriate input on the Denon, press play and enjoy the music. Be careful about volume. Start with the volume on the iPad low and adjust to suit.
Cheers, Don.

CHECK IC101 AND IC102 THESE ARE THE + AND - 15VOLT REGULATORS. iF THEY ARE OFF BY MORE THEN 3 VOLTS IT WILL SHUT THE UNIT DOWN/IC101 IS THE +15V AND IC102 IS THE -15V IF THESE VOLTAGES ARE GOOD THEN THE UNIT IS GOING IN TO THE PROTECT MODE AND YOU WILL HAVE SHORTED OUTPUT TRANSISTORS. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.

Shuts off then red light indicator flashes, disconnected all speakers but still wont work


Hi, this is a power board issue. remove the cover and make sure that this unit doesn't have blow fuse. if the fuse is fine, you will then need to replace the integrated power/ main board.

Receiver shuts off when trying to play a dvd in the dvd player.


Just a hunch - what's drawing power from the two convenience outlets on the back of the receiver. They're only rated for 120watts, that is, nothing like a TV.

I doubt this has anything to do with the source you're playing (unless you have it cranked to "11"). If I understand you correctly you said turning the TV on and off causes the problem. There's a clue.

There is a thermal non resetable fuse built into transformers primary. There are two leads from a connector that go to Primary of transformer they may be yellow and white leads. If there is no continuity between these two wires Transformer is defective. With Power unplugged pull connector and measure with ohmmeter. Fuse is buried pretty deep inside transformer and some technicians can get it out and replace it but it is not easy.
