If you have a multimeter you can check a couple of things.

I don't have the service manual right now, but will by Monday. So if I am wrong about anything please forgive me I am working off of memory and it ain't so good anymore (LOL)

First look at the amplifier board and the regulator board right in front of the amp board. You should see some components that are about the size of resistors and are yellow. Those are fuses.
there may be around 6 of them, give or take a couple, and spread out across the board, most in one area on the regulator board.
With the power off you can use your multimeter and check for continuity. Set the meter to measure ohms in the lowest setting. They should all measure very close to zero ohms. if any of them show that they are not close to zero ohms and they are open, they need to be replaced. I will get you the part numbers Monday if you need them. It is important to replace them with the same parts. After you get them replaced, you still may have problems. Fuses open for a reason, hopefully it will just be something minor like a little power surge or something and it will be fixed. If the unit goes back into protect (shuts off after you turn it on) you may have a bad amplifier IC.

If I remember correctly this amp uses part number PAC007A for the amp IC. It could be another, but I think thats it. The best way to check the amp IC's is to have the unit powered on and check for any DC offset. You can do that by checking the big 5 watt ceramic resistors for any DC voltage. They will be located right in front of the amp IC's and are white with 3 leads each and are rectangular in shape about and inch or so wide. Be careful not to short the lead to your multimeter across anything and make sure the negative lead is grounded to the chassis of the unit. If yo measure anything above about 0.05 volts on any of those leads it is abnormal. if they measure a large voltage like 40 or 50 volts the amp ic is bad for sure and will need to be replaced. Most times when they go bad all yo need to replace is the amp ic. sometimes the 5 watt resistor will open up as well. you can check those by measuring with the power off the resistance in ohms. Put one lead on one of the outside leads and the other on the other outside lead. It should measure almost like it is shorted. They are only 0.22 or 0.33 ohms, it is labeled on the component.
If you need them I can get that on Monday to.

Let me now if you need more help and don't forget to give me a good rating if this was correct.
If I was wrong, forget you ever seen this post (LOL)

KR-V6050 I cannot get audio to work on radio, video or any other setting. Also the red standby light stays on all the time, even when the power switch is turned off. Alan

Check the input / output connections are in the correct places. The red standby will stay on when the unit is off showing that it is ready for use. To confirm, turn the power off at the wall. The red light should go out after a few seconds.

My Pioneer VSX-517 receiver will not power up. Have checked power cord & fuse.

good start. the next is to chech standby voltage 5 volt, that goes to the microprocessor which will enable you to turn-on the main relay(12 volt)that powers up the whole unit. so if you cannot hear a click when you push the power button the the standby transformer capacitor and the 5 volt needs to verified. if this is good the relay - 12 volt and if this is also good the micro is bad. oops-hope it doesnt come to that. the micro is located on the circuit board mounted on the faceplat-a large many pins IC.

Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps2_bing.gif metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers2_bing.gif are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

Goes to standby with fast blinking red light after 5 seconds

From my experience you need to replace the Hi power module

Unit keeps shutting off

Protection circuit activating. Possibly a shorted amplifier channel or power supply fault. Take it to a Denon repairer

When i power on the device, it comes on but goes off about 5 seconds later.


1st thing to check is for GOOD speaker connections at both ends
and not mixing A and B speaker wiring.

A Denon is usually a good brand. Might be worth servicing if need be.

Returns to standby 5 seconds after selecting mode

check for shorted speaker wire strands at one end or the other. That can cause amp to auto-disconnect to prevent damage

Denon avr-2106 problem!!!

You're drawing too much power from it. Sounds like maybe your sub is hooked up wrong, double check that.
