Re: AVR 1803

There is a thermal non resetable fuse built into transformers primary. There are two leads from a connector that go to Primary of transformer they may be yellow and white leads. If there is no continuity between these two wires Transformer is defective. With Power unplugged pull connector and measure with ohmmeter. Fuse is buried pretty deep inside transformer and some technicians can get it out and replace it but it is not easy.

How can I connect my I pod Touch to my Denon AVR 1803 reveiver?

Connect the 3.5mm cable to the iPod headphone output and the two RCA plugs into any unused analogue audio input on the Denon AVR 1803. Then choose the appropriate input on the Denon, press play and enjoy the music. Be careful about volume. Start with the volume on the iPad low and adjust to suit.
Cheers, Don.

Receiver shuts off when trying to play a dvd in the dvd player.

Just a hunch - what's drawing power from the two convenience outlets on the back of the receiver. They're only rated for 120watts, that is, nothing like a TV.

I doubt this has anything to do with the source you're playing (unless you have it cranked to "11"). If I understand you correctly you said turning the TV on and off causes the problem. There's a clue.

No sound fom optical input

Do you have your TV hooked up, so you can see the AVR-4800 system menu on its screen (if not, see the manual). You need to go down to the digital input menu item where you associate each component with its input source, whether it is coax, optical 1, optical 2, ..., etc.

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

Denon AVR 1803

Hello, I think that you've got a problem in the relay circutry or a logic problem. tell ya what I ve got the service manual and schematic for the reciever. the engineers at denon where ahead of there time when this company started. they designed the equipment around what they wanted the specs to be for signal to noise and discrete audio channels. each of the sound channels from the component and composite inputs is given its own bus and amplifier channels. these paths are also common to the reciever/tuner outputs. one question though you mentioned that the composite/component video paths are not switching from the input to the output youve designated, and that the monitor checks good. do you have another video source,either digital or analog that you can input throgh another channel to see if it is infact a switching problem. try that and let me know. I can give you help with the switching circutry form the schematic if need be. believe me I know It took me about a week to track down the service schematic for this unit. Denon doesn't like giving out info unless you are an authorized repair center.
