My denon AVR 1913 will not connect to the internet/network as set up connected to the router. there was no problem with this one week ago, but following a power outage last night, i cannot connect to the...

Sounds like you have given it a good shot. Hopefully the power outage did not 'brown out' which causes damage to some devices. Here is what I would do. With everything connected and powered up, do a hard reset of your modem/router by pressing the recessed button for 10 secs or so. Then log on and re-enter you user name and password and allow DHCP to find all the connected devices. Reserve addresses if you want to. This has worked for me when I had a similar problem. Good luck!

Do not know how to connect power supply

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. - rules

Unplug all electronic cords connected to the computer.

At no time during the installation should any cords be connected to the computer.

Remove the screws holding the computer cover case, and remove the cover case.

Locate the computer power supply box, which looks like a large box out of which a bundle of wires run and connects to the power cord jack on the outside of the computer case.

Unplug the power cables from the internal devices connected to it.

Be careful not to damage any of the sensitive control boards or devices inside the computer, and be certain to remember--write it down if you need to--what devices will need reconnecting to the new power supply when you finish the installation.

Unscrew the power supply from the inside of the computer case and remove it. Check the original power supply's red voltage switch for the correct setting.

It should read 120 or 240 if you live within the United States.

Confirm this setting as the correct voltage setting for your power outlets.

Make sure your new power supply gets set to the correct voltage setting before you install it.

If it cannot be set to the correct voltage, do not proceed with the installation or you may damage your computer.

Return the new power supply and buy one that is compatible with the voltage requirements.

Install the new power supply, reattach the screws that will hold it in the proper place inside the computer.

Reattach the power cables that come from the new power supply to the devices that were connected to the old power supply.

Make sure all of these connections are firmly in place before you turn the computer back on.

Reattach the computer power cables and all the cords connected to the computer during normal operation, but do not close the computer case yet.

Keep your hands clear of the inside of the computer case as you attach power cords and peripheral devices.

Turn the computer on and observe the performance of the computer without touching anything inside.

Do all the computer fans function normally?

Does the computer operate as well as or better than before?

If you feel that the computer behaves normally and you do not encounter any problems, turn the computer off, remove all the power cords and peripheral cables once more, and close the computer case.

Then reattach the power cords and peripheral cables and begin using the computer.

Check for errors if you encountered any problems starting the computer or if it would not start at all, unplug all the power cords and computer cables connected to the computer and look inside.

Make sure that you connected all the correct power cables inside the computer securely and did not miss any.

If you have confirmed this and the computer still doesn't start or operate normally, call your computer manufacturer or a professional computer repair shop for assistance completing the installation

Only the sub-woofer is on , not the other speakers

Did it ever work and then spontaneously fail; are are we starting with a new unit and may not have it set up correctly?

If the latter, see page 5 in the manual on speaker connections...

Connect the speaker cables.
Confirm the colors of the tags on the ends of the cords.
B For White tags:
Connect cords to grey terminals.
For Blue, Black and Red tags:
Connect cords so tag colors match the terminal colors.
Cords with white and blue tags are for high frequency.
Cords with red and black tags are for low frequency.
Incorrect connection can damage the unit.

Where do I plug in the white and yellow cords into my computer ?

The white and yellow cords are av hookups (tv, stereo, etc.) You need to use the USB cord to connect the camera to your computer. Or, you could insert the card into a separate card reader and plug that into your computer.

Canon Not recongized by Computer

Try to change the USB connection type in the camera menu. There are several types like Mass storage, Pict. bridge, and the one you need is most likely PTP. Anyway, try all of those and maybe it will work. That is the most common problem when connecting cameras to Vista based systems.
