Re: Denon AVR-1705

It's probably NOT the capacitor.
I repair these kind of things for a living.
It's most likely a power transistor or two.
And it shouldnt cost 300 to fix either..Unless the tech is incompetent.
Dont let someone rip you off

Re: Denon AVR-1705

Seeing that its bleenking red it letting you know that the main capassitor to the transformer has blown and if you keep it pluged in it will in a short time allow the transformer to smoke and it can overheat and catch on fire.....NO GOOD. Its 1 of Denon's problem's....I see it quit often.
it will cost around 300.00 to fix.
Please let me know if I can Take it of your hands for the need of the left channel on another one.

By the way LET ME KNOW I do have 2 new Denon's an Onkyo and a Harmon Kardon I can give you at a cheeper price around 369.95 for a AVR788
Email or call me and I will give you 45.00 off ...OK...PayPal and 630-742-6587

AVR 1705 Denon shuts down to standby mode w/red light flashing

Hey, greetings.
First, disconnect all speakers. Try to turn on. If it does you have a short on spkrs. If not, turn off and REINITIALIZE. Find the right way on Google "(your model) factory reset". Normally you hold down both spkr buttons while you turn on, wait for flashing screen, 3 seconds, release buttons. If not, you need a tech. Could be shorted output transistors, but after many of these units it is usually the + or - 15 volt supply regulators. LUCK.

I have a Denon AVR 1705 and can get a tv picture and no sound or sound with no picture. Is there a setting or selection that I am missing to have both.

Sounds like the sound inputs have been reassigned to another input-

You'll ideally need the instructions to give a fuller idea of how you adjust these and all the options it gives you

Denon AVR-1705 Missing Video Functions?


What you need to do is connect all your devices to the Denon Using the best connections (Yellow Video=OK, S-Video=good, Component green-red-blue=better and HDMI=best. if you do not have a DVD that upconverts to 1080i or p when using HDMI, I would use component cables where available from your devices to the Denon other wise use the next best connection available and if connecting digital audio make a chart of all connection so you can setup everything when your ready for programming the Denon

Denon AVR 1705-no audio on TV

I have had the same problem and was told that it is a "board" inside. Essentially it has lost the surround sound ability and can only play things in Direct/Stereo. Mine is just over 2 years and I originally thought my kids had hit a button on the thing causing the issue...ended up paying $100 to trouble shoot it and confirm that it is internal and more expensive to fix than replace. Can't say that I will be buying a Denon again.

Denon avr-2106 problem!!!

You're drawing too much power from it. Sounds like maybe your sub is hooked up wrong, double check that.

No Power

I mwas gonna suggest that you need the speakers attached but you stated later that it did the same thing with the speakers attached. The unit switching off after it checks its self is NOT a normal thing. TAKE IT BACK BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!! GOOD lUCK
