My receiver has been working great, one day the speakers started to squeal and then silence. I realized the input display was cutting in and out and finally staying out. After numerous variations of cable changes, input modes and aggrevation, I started to here the input circuit clipping. It tries to come on, but nothing. Microprosser has been reset, didnt help. Initial turn on everything works for about 5 min. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
Well it's been 2 weeks since my last post about having the same problems. No static, popping sounds or complete loss with a single tone! WooOoOoOo! Turns out it was airflow only. I have about 6" headroom above the Denon now and I also leave the door open on my media center (glass) whenever I turn on the Denon. Also of note, my media center has an open back.
I have recently experienced front left, center and front right speaker audio output problems. First it was the front left completely off. I would wiggle wires in the back thinking it an input cable issue. I changes my HDMI cables, but this did not apparently change the symptoms. I resorted to gently tapping on the cabinet and noticed audio changes in the front 3 speaker levels including hum from the center speaker with weak sound.
A long story short, I used the speaker levels tone test on manual to check the levels while tapping, slapping then almost pounding on the rear top of the receiver in an attempt to restore my front 3 channel outputs to their full volume levels. I am now convinced that the problem lies in poor connectivity between the power amplified modules and the speaker output terminals. I have seen this in Pioneer receivers and actually resorted to re-soldering the modules to the circuit board after seeing cracked and open solder joints. Without knowledge of the internals of the AVR-887, I am confident this is a similar scenario and I will have to g inside to effect the permanent repair. Not looking forward to disconnecting and reconnecting my A/V plant and the risk I will have to reprogram inputs etc. to get it all working again. Such is the bother for an A/V hub setup in a cabinet.
I wouldn't look for anything more complicated such as the internal processors and A/V switching circuitry. The highest current pathways are the most susceptible to this breakdown for audio output. However, if anyone has found another problem area, please let us know!

These are the codes that I have from a few extra sources. They are for ALL Denon receivers/tuners: (3 digit = 262,307)For the AVR all numbers consisting of a 4 number code, all begin with a "5". Here they are: 5006, 5048,5054,5085,5129, 5130, 5131, 5132, 5133, 5134, 5152, 5159, 5160, 5168.I was able to get my 529 rc to program some of the features but I will go back and try other codes that may have a better "fit" and operate more features. Hope this helps!
You might have the polarities on the speakers crossed, check all speaker connections to make sure the pos and neg are connected correctly. If they are crossed, this will cause the receiver to short out, thanks
Try this, turn off the unit and remove the AC power cord from the electrical outlet, Hold the AUTO button and PCM button and plug the unit back into the electrical outlet, if the display starts flashing with 1 second intervals then release the 2 buttons, this initialized the microprocessor
the problem you have seems to be on programing the master effects to get to it go to main menu and see the distribution and effects you want to hear on you home theather.remember that home surround needs some decoders to send the sound where the images come and its right built in....
first check speaker connections for a short.Something usually is touching either at the reciever or amp.The receiver goes in protect mode when there is a short.If that does not work the receiver may be trying to push more watts than capable
I'm dealing with the very same frustration. Best I can tell, the problem with my setup is that this model (avr-887) can't pass component video input out through HDMI. Can anyone confirm that?
Prior to setting up the Wii, I'd only been using a single HDMI output from the denon to my tv/monitor.
The only solution I've found is to add a component video output to the monitor -- which is unfortunate. I'd much rather have only the single HDMI out.
Would love to hear if there is a way to set this up without having to add the additional component output...
I have one and the same thing happened. try resetting your microprocessor and if that does not work, then check the wiring of the speakers. if that is working fine and no wires are touching then I unplugged everything and was still having the issue. took it in for service and it was found that the transmitor was shorted as the speakers that I was using was too high in ohms. it is possible that it could be your caps also if resetting the microprocessor does not help. You can find out how to reset the microprocessor from your manual. If you have the Denon avr 887 with the system turned off hold the power on button and the speaker A and B at the same time for a few seconds. This is compatible to rebooting your computer. Hope this works for you as this was and is my husbands favorite past times.
