Denon AVR 2802 - Unit Turning Off

Recently my 2802 has started to cut out when playing movies in surround sound. This happens at all different sound volume levels. Unit has also had a problem when sound is turned up to around 20 watching TV or listening to music. All cables have checked, but unit cuts out all together. Happens whether listening in direct mode or stereo.

Any help would be appreciated. Watching movies just isn't the same.

If DIGITAL sign blink, this mean DSP board is defective. It will cut the sound on the AMP section. DSp is maybe defective.

No sound

check speaker conections. disconnect all the speaker wires and use one speaker that you know that works and connect it to each channel one at a time. most surround sound stereos will not go into surround mode unless all the speakers are connected so make sure stereo is in 2 channel mode to start testing. check all fuses sometimes amp fuse is seperate from power circuit and denon uses relays in 99% of thier units.

Hi, I have a denon 2802 av receiver. My Dolby decoder seems broken, the doby-display-indiactor is blinking as soon as a dolby signal is receiced. resettting doesn't help. DTS is still working. Anaybody...

The processor that creates the surround is all on 1 chip so sounds like a software issue.

Call Denon to see if they have a firmware update for your unit this usually is free and may fix the problem

I cant make the coaxial cable work with surround sound

Coaxial cable does not support 5.1 dolby surround sound. You could try setting the unit to Stereo Output instead. Also you could use RCA cables instead.

Technical Problem on my Denon AVR 2802

How good are you with electronic repairs...? Do it if only you are confident...

The way you describe you problem it seems more like poor solder connections somewhere on the board. Usually these are at the voltage regulators where there can be some heat. Also, look for any connections that appear to be grasiny or have rings and resolder them too.

Alternatively, suggest that you take it to the Denon service center closest to you.

Best of Luck..

After playing my AVR-2802 Denon a while approx 3-4 hrs the sound output juts turns off, after letting it cool down a while it will resume playing ok , then repeats the cycle of loss of audio output.

Seems to be a heat related issue, when it " cools down " awhile it resumes audio output? Be sure you are allowing air circulation around the receiver, I am note sure but I do not think Denons have inboard fans, you could try a ciculating air fan on the unit after playing it for a couple of hours if the receiver feels hot.

Avr-2802 constantly restarting itself and flickering on and off

check all speaker wires from the receiver end and the speaker ends. Just the smallest strand of copper could be touching something it should not be touching. Make sure all copper is in the speaker post and not hanging out. The receiver is getting a short and shutting off to protect it self. This could have happened since you were just plugging things in.

If "Digital" sign blink on front panel, it means DSP do no start properly. If DSP do not start, main UC mute audio. Change IC, AT49LV002-70TC (IC 817 ) at DSP board (Denon P/N: 262 3010 006).

No sound from my brand new speakers

I am assuming you have tried new speakers on used unit on both A & B choices. Have you tried your new speakers with old 2802? If they work OK with old unit, you have problem with amplifier in used unit. Take the used 2802 to a reputable shop and have it thoroughly tested. Perhaps it is just a loose connection.
