Question about Denon AVR-1801 Receiver

2 Answers

I have a problem with my volume control. I was playing a disc when suddenly the volume increased violently and I had to turn the system off. When I turned it back on my volume control will not go beyond '10' which is too loud for playback. The usual volume I listen too is about '30' or so depending on how old the recording is. I have tried resting the system and allowing it to cool however the problem persists. Could you please help.

    Thankyou for your assistance. My volume control button does turn but the volume does not progress beyond '10'. It does go lower to lesser volumes. The volume control responds to my remote but also does not progress beyond '10' the same as my volume button. The display on my receiver I have noted shows 'ANALOG'. Is this significant?

Hello,

Ok first, try disconnecting the power source and everything connected to the unit and let it sit for fifteen minutes. This should perform a soft reset...if you have HDMI connections that could be a problem as well. By disconnecting all connections to the unit this problem could be inadvertently cured as well.

Second, take the top off the unit and use a very good magnigying glass; check to see if you have any obviously damaged electronic components...the damage should be obvious to even the untrained eye.

If the unit is still under warranty, consider returning to manufacturer for repair: http://www.usa.denon.com/ServiceCenterLocator.asp

HTH,

This happens if the button of volume getting loose or getting stuck up and not spinning properly.so check out if the button is easily spinning and actually functioning to increase or decrease the volume when you spin the button.many times the internal connection of the button becomes loose so it only works for some extent but does not work properly. and the other problem is the internal hardware problem in the board.as you mentioned that suddenly the volume got increased without doing anything.so it can be short circuit in the circuit board.its not a major problem just a minute short tracking on the board due to which any of the electrical component supporting the volume settings is got blowed out.you just require to open the unit and replace that faulty component from the board.and this will clear the problem.if not familiar you can get it dome by local electronics repair technician.its not a costly issue to get repaired if a short circuit or a internal button problem. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

What causes audio to suddenly increase to maximum?


Volume in modern systems are controlled by a single IC. If that goes, it makes the volume functions go wonky. The IC can be found by tracing the wires from the volume control, or following the circuit if it is mounted on a PC board.

Can't hear the skype ring when a call comes into my computer.


If you're missing Skype calls because you can't hear the ringtone, it's time to crank up the volume. There are three different ways to increase the ringtone: within the Skype client, within your operating system's volume settings and by adjusting your physical speakers or headset. You might find it necessary to adjust all three settings to get the proper volume. You also must set your Skype status to "Available," because a "Busy" status disables the ring from incoming calls.

Launch Skype. Open the "Help" menu. Select "Options." Select "Audio Settings" from the left sidebar of the Options window. Find the "Speakers" listing. Uncheck the "Automatically Adjust Speaker Settings" box. Slide the blue volume slider to the right to increase the volume. Press the green play button to test the volume. Skype plays a default ringtone to test the sound. Adjust your computer's sound settings. Windows users, click the speaker icon in the taskbar located at the bottom right of your screen. Move the slider up to increase the volume. Mac users, open the "Apple" menu. Select "System Preferences" and click "Sound." Drag the slider to the right to increase the volume. Turn up the volume on your speakers or headset. Desktop speakers can be adjusted by turning the knob on the front of the main speaker. Headsets sometimes have a small button that can be pressed up and down to adjust the volume, depending on the model.

Sub seems to not get louder with volume increase. It seems to be overpowering at low volume or boomy then as you increase volume the front main speakers seem to take over.


Try adjusting the frequency cut off of the sub and also play with the gain control on the sub. Turn your system up to where your front speakers are sounding as you like. Then try adjusting the sub to match the fronts so you have a good balance and blend.

Volume will just blast real loud


If you have a remote control , unplug the lead from the volume control (at the back of the machine) and instead of it plugging into the Inrfa Red control unit in the base of the cabinet, plug it straight into the amp volume input.
There has been problems with the remote that does what you are suggesting so this will prove the point.
