Question about Denon DRA-397

1 Answer

I have a Denon DRA-397 Receiver. It was stuck with the "Panel Lock" but I followed the instructions here to hold the "B" and "Mode" buttons while powering on. It unlocked the panel. Now the Reciever is stuck in "Tuner" function and the "Function" knob does not change it to CD/DVD or any other "Function". I tried power off an on again and I tried the remote to no avail. Help....

Check for a reset of the receiver. If no mention in manual you might want to check with the manufacturer for a code . If nada then the electronics are fubar and you are SOL.

SOURCE: denon receiver (DRA 397) will not speak to iPod dock

IF YOUR NOT USING A DENON IPOD DOCKING STATION IT WILL NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY.
YOU CAN CONNCET OTHER TYPES OF IPOD DOCKING STATIONS BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE CONTROL THROUGH THE DENON AND ONLY CONNECT THE AUDIO FOR THAT DOCKING STATION TO THE DENON AS ANOTHER SOURCE INPUT

SOURCE: I was trying to reset my Denon AVR 689 to default

Hello,

To reset with the unit OFF but plugged in, press and hold the speaker A and B buttons and while still holding them press the POWER button. Continue to hold the speaker buttons for another 1 to 2 second.The display should all light up and flash at 1-second intervals. If not flashing, try again.

I hope this helps

Cannot disable panel lock

This may not work, as it appears to be for a different model, but it states:

How do I unlock the panel on my DRA-397?

Power the unit off using the On/Off button. (not the larger On/Standby button) While the unit is powered off, press and hold the "Speaker B" and "Mode" buttons. Without releasing those buttons, power the unit back on. This will unlock the panel.

The scren says panel lock on. how do i get out of this mode


Denon panel lock was not supposed to be supported on this model, somehow yours is. We need to reset the microprossessor.
as denon manual states:
switch off the unit by pressing power.
keep both speaker a and b pressed and turn on the unit by pressing power.
check that the entire display is flashin at 1 sec intervals and release buttons.
the mircoprossor has been reset.
if step 3 does not work start over again.
the receiver will go back to factory defaults.
let us know if further troubleshooting is needed.

Cheers!

Remote lock on


This worked for me, but I'm sure tired of constantly searching for ways to fix the problems I encounter with my Denon DRA-397. When it works, it's great, but I don't have a degree in electrical engineering. Why can't they produce a user friendly trouble shooting guide?
