SOURCE: Denon AVR-810 going into PROTECTION mode

It sounds like there is a problem with the differential circuit. The bias I am not sure about, as every unit is different. You should get the service manual to be sure or call Denon and see if they can give you an idea. Good Luck

If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.

It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.

I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.

I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).

I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.

Just waiting for them to arrive.

An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.

Hope thats of use!

SOURCE: Denon AVR-1508 Receiver problems - cuts off and goes into protect mode

Usually when the unit runs for a while before shutting down there are two possibilities:

1) There is a small amount of DC current present that effectively heats up the speaker coils enough to cause a temporary short circuit that kicks in the protect circuit.
2) The output transistors or bias transistors are sensitive to heat and breaking down again causing the protect circuit to kick in.

A few experiments to try:

1) Does the time to shutdown change depending upon the volume level?
2) Is there any background noise coming from the speakers? Listen to a blank tape for example. Is there a hum or any other noise that you would not normally expect?
3) If you have a DC voltmeter, check for any voltage between the speaker lines.

Update this and we'll try to narrow this down.

Try to reset the unit: hold "speaker A" and "Speaker B" buttons and power on the unit. Display will be flashing, release the buttons after 3 seconds. If the problem still there, most likely you have bad digital signal processing (DSP) board - send the unit to repair facility.

Switches off after five seconds.AVR-590


There are a few things that could be causing this to happen. The first thing you should do is check all the speaker wires connected to see if they might be touching each other somewhere. What you are describing sounds like there might be a short. Also, is the receiver well ventilated? What is happening is that it is protecting itself but shutting off.The 590 is going in to Protection Mode due to some fault it perceives. The quick flashing red power light (as opposed to a slower flashing light) would indicate either speaker wires touching another terminal, driving 4 ohm speakers to loud, or amp failure.

disconnect speakers then try again if still shutting down you will have bad outputs.

Denon avr2312ci shuts off and blinks red


Yes that is why. The receiver is protecting itself from an un-stable load impedance which causes current/voltage spikes through the final amplifier components and proportionally through the input where the protection relay is (click),. Do not continue using the amp until you have repaired or replaced the blown speakers. A rule of thumb is to maintain 8 ohms on each speaker wire plugged into the amp. Keep that in mind or eventually you will damage it.

My avr-688 will shut off out of the blue and will flash a red blinking light


It sounds like it might be the overheat protection problem described in this thread. http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=622921&thid=3736114 Your amp has a thermal protection circuit which shuts down the receiver to prevent damage from overheating. Most often this is due to using speakers with an incorrect ohm rating, such as using 4 ohm speakers in a system designed for 6 ohm . It can also occur from using 6 ohm speakers in both the A and B front channels at the same time. If you have speakers attached to both the A and B try removing one set and check if this makes the system stable.

After days of frustration the real problem was with the cable box. It needed a firmware update. Following forum advice I disconnected the cable box power cord for a few minutes, reconnected it, allowed the cable box to reinitialize. Turned off receiver and TV. Turned TV back on and set it to HDMI connection, turned on receiver and all worked fine. Great picture and sound.( Needed to buy an optical cable to go from the cable box to the receiver to get sound from the speaker system. )--the dirtybird

IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO CONNECT ANALOG AUDIO IN ADDITION TO THE OPTICAL, COAXIAL OR HDMI AUDIO CONNECTION. IF USING OPTICAL OR COAXIAL CONNECTIONS BE SURE TO CONFIGURE IT IN THE RECEIVERS DIGITAL ASSIGNMENT AREA IN SETUP.
ALSO, ON THE FRONT OF THE RECEIVER IS AN INPUT MODE BUTTON, PRESS THIS BUTTON UNTIL AUTO IS DISPLAYED

Stuck on standby


Unit is in protect mode there are a few problems that can trigger protect mode the most common is blown channel (shorted outputs). Sometimes one of the 15v regulators may go bad causing imbalance of supplys triggering protect mode. Also sometimes a bad solder connection could cause unit to go into protect also. I work for Denon authorzied repair center in Michigan if your nearby and Shipping to Michigan is economical let me know kstahl65@att.net
