Denon avr-888 problem with the receiver shutting off

Whenever i go to put the surround system on the tuner for FM radio, it cuts the power off when i turn it up, meaning the entire receiver powers down once the volume is up a decent level. anyone have an idea about why this is? the surround works on everything else just fine with ipod and the TV surround, on the tuner it works great with the 3speakers but when all 5 are on it cuts off like that

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.

When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.

If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.

If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.

On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".

If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.

I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.

If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.

If I can be of any further help, let me know.

How good are you with electronic repairs...? Do it if only you are confident...

The way you describe you problem it seems more like poor solder connections somewhere on the board. Usually these are at the voltage regulators where there can be some heat. Also, look for any connections that appear to be grasiny or have rings and resolder them too.

Alternatively, suggest that you take it to the Denon service center closest to you.

Best of Luck..

Have Denon AVR-2313ci receiver. FM tuner quit working; will tune in 50 MHz steps, on every step "stereo" and "tuned" are lit but no sound comes out whether actual station or not.


There is no module per se. Tuning is accomplished by applying a voltage to the tuner chip and their associated circuits. It needs to be repaired by a Denon service center.

I can't seem to get the tuner to work on my Denon AVR 2803 receiver.


It can't hurt.

You will lose all your settings though. So you'll have to set the amp up again from scratch.

Before you do initialise, let's just check.... You plugged in a FM or AM aerial, right?

It seems you are not unfamiliar with censorable abbreviations.

RTFM and go through all the settings again.

Your unspecified external devices all have settings, cables and (if digital) the ports on the Denon may need to be assigned.

I have a Denon AVR-1707 with a center, 2 front speakers, and surround sound back speakers. When set to FM radio, all speakers work. When set to TV, only one side speaker works. Any ideas? It worked fine...


Follow the sound back to its source. FM is internal so it can't possibly have a cabling issue.

I imagine your TV sound ultimately originates from a cable box which has a nice juicy digital output that the Denon could use. Why route audio through a TV, like the manuals tell you, when you can get it straight to the best audio device without a detour to a TV and its dubious audio electronics?

I'm not familiar with this particular model, but it should be a option (or button) labeled "input", or "input mode", or "signal mode". Can you see on display "ANALOG" or DIGITAL when you switch receiver to TV in?

Problem to find radio station on tuner?


Hello,

FM ( at least in the USA) only goes 90.1-90.3-90.5 and so on.
This is how stations are separated.
There are no stations on 90.4 or 101.6 and so on

Loss of sound on the Denon AVR 2807 a/v surround receiver when I turn on and off lights in my house


Finally the problem was with the HDMI cable. When I pushed it in on the TV set the problem disappeared. It seems the connections must be quite firm on the HDMI cables otherwise anything may interfere to the sound.
