Question about Denon AVR-1707 Receiver
I am unable to achieve desired frequency on DENON 1707 purchased in USA. Like unable to stop on channel 95.00,104.00Pls advise if any unlock or programing needs to be done
Hook up a Small piece of wire Coming off the #00 ohm input for ant also put it in Mono mode first and you should be able to Hear Hiss Then tune Let me Know ttech

Hi, There should be a very light thumping sound when you power off or power on the receiver. If none, then it is possible that as you posted, the receiver is broken. 3 possible areas where the receiver might be having some problem(s) are: 1. The speaker protection circuitry. This might have activated which is indicative of another possible problem(#2); 2. Your amplifiers are dead; 3. For some reason, audio muting is activated. this is normally caused by the microprocessor not detecting any intelligent audio input and mutes the audio before going into the preamp stage. Examples of this are when they FM signal is weak there are more hiss than intelligent sound. But as you posted, there seems to be a station that it has locked into and an antenna is installed. If resetting the unit and trying other signal sources such as CD player or MP3 player, or even your fingers on the positive end of an RCA plug and likewise trying the different RCA inputs and selecting the source as the case maybe, and you still do not get any sound reproduced from the speakers, then it is probably safe to say the your receiver needs some repairs. Since this involves electronic circuit diagnosis, probably soldering and replacing some components, perhaps your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some idea/help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: can't find a radio frequency
check if the antenna is connected right. I assume it is FM. If AM and SW there are different antennas. Make sure the ends of the antenna connecting to the receiver unit is stripped. Best of luck

SOURCE: I have a Denon AVR-1707
Follow the sound back to its source. FM is internal so it can't possibly have a cabling issue.
I imagine your TV sound ultimately originates from a cable box which has a nice juicy digital output that the Denon could use. Why route audio through a TV, like the manuals tell you, when you can get it straight to the best audio device without a detour to a TV and its dubious audio electronics?

Tips for a great answer:
See the swection on "Listening to the radio" on page 24 of the manual...
You can switch the AM band tuning steps between 9 kHz and 10 kHz.
The initial setting is 9 kHz. Please set the AM tuning step frequency to match the AM band tuning step frequency in your area.
USA and Canadian models 10 kHz
Other models 9 kHz
Press MEMORY while holding down TUNER.
Note: All the preset stations are erased when you switch the AM band tuning steps.

Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.
1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.
2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
To search for stations in the currently selected band,
press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.
• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.
