Unit shut off. Why doesn't it turn back on?


Unswitched power has nothing to do with the power supply of the receiver. Look for blown fuses or a failed component on the power supply.

When on FM tuner, stereo stops playing after a few minutes


Right then sounds like the connection from the aerial lead into the receiver - check out the socket where the aerial plugs into!

Is it loose at all or could there be a bad connection inside the unit.
Get the cover OFF and investigate yourself before you rush down to that very friendly repair man along the street.

My Denon Stereo Receiver (DRA-345R) (quite an old model but has worked perfectly up until now) has a very static reception on AM. FM is fine. It started when I had my DirecTV upgraded with a Genie (whole...


it's obviously getting interferance fronm that whole house broadcast unit (not abnormal!) best and only thing you can do is to move the stereo to a place where you can get the MOST am stations the loop ant. is exactly what it says it is a loop of wire with two ends..both ends connect to the ant. input on the back of the unit..however if that whole house broadcast unit is the devil then an ant. no matter what or how it's made will only recieve more static not built to reject static! so you've got to move it unfortunately ..fm is a totally different band obviously fm isn't being affected by that whole home broadcast unit..you're lucky! on that count

Denon dra 345


There is a site listed below which has links to the service manual.I would look at the capacitors to see if any are blown and need to be replaced. If you have some that are indeed blown, then it can't get the energy it needs on demand and will heat up. Caps are easy to replace and you can tell they are bad if they are swollen, bulging on the top, or leaking. Cheap and easy fix and I presume you meant Denon in the text, lol.

FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...


If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

AS SOON AS I TURN ON MY DENON-395 RECEIVER IT TURNS OFF


I REMOVED THE AM LOOP ANTENNA. AND THE UNIT WORKED. TO MAKE SURE THIS WAS THE PROBLEM I REMOVED AND REPLACED IT SEVERAL TIMES. EACH TIME IT WENT OFF AND. I THEN PUT ON THE FM INDOOR (WIRE) ANTENNA. THE UNIT BEGAN TO PLAY BEFORE EVEN BEFORE I CONNECTED IT. JUST GETTING IT CLOSE TO THE FM COAX. MADE IT WORK.

Denon DRA 345R. no fm reception.


Hi...

What are you using for an antenna?
Also, do you have aluminum siding or aluminum sheet in your house insulation?
Steel roof? Any of those will kill reception.
