Re: receiver shuts off at times

There is some leakage of DC voltage getting to the output section. DC voltage will cause the protection circuit to kick in and shut down the amp. This should be a relatively simple repair and cost about $15-$30 in parts plus the local labor rate.

My receiver just shut off while watching a movie and won't turn back on. I checked the only fuse i could find. Where to go from here.

Press and hold the "straight" and "Tone control" buttons and press power. This should release the protect lock that the receiver is in. If it shuts back off immediately, then you most likely have a blown amp that will need to be repaired.

Receiver shuts off at times

Those recivers are usually preety good oones with little to no problems. Its just when it gets a certin age it extends its life. You can take it in to a technician to have it serviced, mostly you have cracked solders on the board which will accout for the problems you are having. there might be a few things that need changing but basically your recuver is good it just needs servicing thats all.
Or if you prefer you could get a new one.. BUT YOU CAN JUST HAVE THE CURRENT ONE YOU GOT SERVICED..

a service wil include
re-soldering cracked or loose solders on the board
changing a couple of stuff, maybe capicators or resistors and unlikely an ic.
dusting it

So just take it in to a technician for a service cause its reached it life span ,,

I am wondering the same thing. I expected more bass when watching a movie but it seems the only way I can have lot's of bass is in Stereo mode, the rest of the settings do not have much bass. Hope we find a solution to this as I am disappointed at the moment.

After watching DVD for 1/2 hour to an hour, it goes into an "overheated" mode for lack of a better term - it shuts itself off! If we wait for a good while, we can use it again. WTF?

It has to have enough air around it, and not in an enclosed area.
Remove anything that might be on top if it, especially another device.
Once free and clear with good airflow, which is no less than 6" clearance from the vents more is better, clean all dust you can from it.
It also must have efficient speakers connected with a compatible Ohm rating.
Also reducing the volume will help...if not an option do one or all of the following.
If you are using a subwoofer, increase the crossover frequency setting on the receiver. Bass frequencies require more power from the amp, thus creating more heat.
Turn off any bass boost, equalizer, or tone controls. All of those require more amp power...creating heat.
You may also want to consider using a small desk fan near it...blow it right into the vents.

When watching a movies or playing xbox my avr220 powers down when ever there is a boom in the movie or games or tv this just started about 2 months now

Something is getting overloaded.

When this happens:

Is it running hot? Find out why.
Is the volume set extremely high? Turn it down.
Are the speaker settings proper for the types and bass handling capacity of your speakers? Set them appropriately.

I have a Denon receiver, had it for a couple years now and has worked perfectly. Last week I was watching a movie and all of a sudden my receiver shut off and it blinked a red ring of death. I let it rest...

Did you recently move any speakers around or any items near the speaker wire connections?
It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorting which is causing the receiver to go into "auto protect" mode. Check all of the speaker wire connections on the back of the receiver and at all of the speakers to make sure the wires are not touching or close enough to possibly touch.

The receiver sound shuts off

There is a problem with the receiver that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output amp section. This is detected and the protection circuit shuts down the receiver. Yamaha uses coupling capacitors between sections to prevent this. If one of these is defective, it would explain your symptom. This should be a relatively simple repair for a repair shop. Expect $10-$25 for parts plus the local labor rate.

Reciver need to adjust bass or trebel

Hi Brent

hhmmmm, I searched through the manual to find this info for you. It appears that the tone adjustments are initiated by the "tone" button on the REMOTE. I could not find any reference to there being a button to do same on the front of the unit. Odd, but there you go.
  1. Use the tone key(on remote) to get "tone" up on the front of the unit.
  2. Then using the multi up-down keys, turn the "tone on".
  3. Once you have got to here, use the tone key to select "bass" or " treble"
  4. Using the multi up down keys, adjust the tone controls to your liking with the multi up down keys
you can download the manual from

Just enter your email address and away you go. Good Luck. A "FixYa" rating would be great for my time to research this for you.
