My friend has a Denon AVR-1801 receiver that is stuck on ''Standby'' and does not seem to want to fully power up. Can you give me some general directions to look before actually shipping it off for some costly repairs? Thank you!

Denon AVR-3200 wont go into standby mode

Not sure what you mean by standby mode. The power button on most of the audio remotes I deal with merely turns the equipment on and off.

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?

if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

Check if none of the speakers wires are shorting.

This is sometimes an indication that the speakers are loading the receiver amplifier. Take the speaker connections out one by one (making sure you mark these with some stickers so that you know where to connect back) . Each time check if it moves out of standby. If not put wire back on.

Good Luck

Denon AVR older receiver but worked fine; now

Did you try to reset the unit? Resetting the unit has fixed every problem I have ever had......turn off unit.....hold down A+B at the same time then turn the unit back on...hold buttons for roughly 3 seconds....Let me know if it works.
