I have just received a pair of Denon DN-s3000 and plugged them in. They were from america and i plugged them in in the UK. The lights came on for seconds and everything died. I have bought an adaptor now however when i plug them in there is no power or anything. Do you know if they have a cut out switch or anything

Re: no power to decks
Sorry to say but you may have destroyed the units. USA uses 110volt. Uk is 240volts. There may be circuit protectors, pico fuses, internal fuses, and transformer fuses that have failed. replacing them first is the first approach to getting them going again. An adapter plug is not what you need. You require a step-down transformer to reduce the voltage supplies to 110volts. Check on the units also. There may be a voltage selector switch that you can select the right voltage for the UK. Be careful with how you go. Mains voltage kills. If you are not sure then please go to a tech and have them check the decks over for you. Good luck

In working with consumer electronics a lot of years, the pickup, mechanism or CD section is not always at fault but people that are trying to work on their own equipment make assumptions that may not be correct. If you put in a new CD player then the other issues as with all wave soldered equipment can be bad solder joints and even bad solder at joints where the connectors are as these get a lot of activity in a repair. Look at the PCB well. I have fixed a lot of equipment by resoldering bad or broken joints. Check around power transistors and those larger drive transistors for these broken joints.
Depends on what you want to record and what capabilities the other equipment has - analog audio passed through the Denon and/or digital audio from it or another device, like a CD player. There are both Inputs and Outputs.
Treat it like a tape deck: It will have analog input from the receiver's Tape Out jacks and it will send analog playback and monitoring to the receiver on the Tape In jacks. (Page 14)
Ditto for compatible digital connections. (Page 15)
You can find the manual on Retrevo.com. Just register and download it. You're going to need it to make use of the machine anyway.
Try this: 1. While holding "Title", Press Stop to enter what Denon calls "presetting" mode. 2. Press Track Search Reverse or Track Search Forward until you get to 20, which is the presetting mode for Single/Continuous Play. 3. Press Play to toggle between Continuous and Single Play. 4. Press Stop to exit Presetting Mode. Hope this works! I just finished a belabored job without Single Play on this unit. I have been searching for the answer too. I don't have access to the deck to try it, but I think this will do the job.
