Question about Denon AVR-3300 Receiver
I have had this receiver for about 10 years now (same one my father has, of which he has no problem of course), and about a year ago it started to make static noises (crackling also) and would start to loose sound.
The input does not matter and also the sound output (stereo, DTS, Dolby, 5 channel). I can literally type the front of the receiver (no harder than a flick) and the sound will come back on for a short period of time.
Also, I took the casing off and noticed that the fan is not running which I assume is not good, but that aside, whether it is 3 minutes in or 3 hours in the problem still persists....any ideas? thanks
The Denon Curse.......the connectors that the input boards ( up and down if your receiver is in the normal position ), plug into one of the 2 main boards on the bottom. These connectors are suspect and need to be cleaned and re-soldered. Same with the board that runs from the input side of the unit ( right behind the front panel, running across the unit ) to the amplifier board. Denons were HORRIBLE for bad connections with these. This is an involved repair requiring the entire thing to be pulled apart. It is not an afternoon job for a do-it-yourselfer, take it to an authorized Denon repair shop, as I GUARANTEE that they have seen this problem many times for all models from 2000-01-02-03. Good luck..... Rob
