A sound spike should not heat up the unit enough to shut it down. There is another problem. What is the time frame for the shutdown? Is it only after the unit has been running for a while?

Similar situation as previously described with the Denon AVR-1508, but mine will shut off after about 10-12 minutes the first time around and then ~2 minutes after it is turned off and then back on. Unit...


Most new receivers have a fan on the back, if you have one check to make sure it is working, most won't activate until the unit gets warm, other issues are bad solder connections on the audio outputs causing intermittent shutdown, as a final inspection check speaker connections to the receiver and speakers.

Hi,

Try a hard reset first unplug all the cords from the ck and allow the unit to reset for 30min and then plug in the cords back.

AFTER 2-3 SEC THE AMPLIFIER SHUTS DOWN AND THE ON/OFF BUTTON FLASHED RED sOME ADVICE?


Check to make sure the speaker wiring is secure, failing that! the audio output stage that drives the speakers is the problem, you probably have a short and the safety shutdown circuits have be activated to prevent further damage. It will need a technician to remedy the situation.

Dear sir, The denon AVR 3300 receiver quits after playing a while; somtimes it quits after an hour,sometimes after 2 hours! Can you tell me how the sleep timer functions..... Thank you Cees van...


There is no sleep timer on the 3300. You are experiencing an "over heat" shut down. The 3300 is notorious for over heating at almost any volume level. It must be vented constantly with an external fan pulling air completely through the cabinet. Don't use it at all until you do this. The internal fan is week and will start to make noise from too much heat. Replacing the Denon fan will not solve this either. See my other posts about this issue.

2.If speaker core wire touch each other Protection circuit is activated


Even applying power red flashes 0.5 seconds interval

THE UNIT WILL KEEP SHUTTING DOWN AFTER IT IS GOING FOR A WHILE. NOT JUST THE AUDIO ALL POWER IS LOST.


Typically this is because of heat generation. There are protection circuits that will shutdown the receiver when it gets too hot. There are many reasons for this. Can you update this with the make and model please? That will help to determine the possible causes of the heat shutdown.

Thanks,
Dan

Denon avr-2106 getting hot shutting down


Normally when this happens it is because the impedence load is too small. This unit requires 8 Ohm speakers. If you connect 4 Ohm speakers, it will work, but work harder and generate excessive heat. If the heat is too much, the unit will enter protect mode and shut down. Once it cools off, it will work again. In your case, if the speakers are the correct impedence, check for crossed wires. If that is the problem, running the unit at higher volume levels should cause it to shutdown sooner.

Keep us posted,
Dan

Denon receiver shutdown


Try turning down your tone controls. Like your bass, treble, or your equalizer. If you hear too much tinny or hissing sounds, the treble has to be turned down, or turn down the upper bands controls on your equalizer to the optimun level. If you hear too much bassy sounds, your bass control has to be turned down, or the lower band controls has to be turned down to the optimun level. If you are planning on turning the volume up, you may have to turn down some of the tone controls to the optimun levels, otherwise, your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers. Also make sure you speaker wire polarity is hooked up right. Red wire on the + red terminals, and the black wire on the - black terminals. Also don't have the volume turned up too high to the point where your receiver would have clipping or distortion, or else your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers.

If this don't help, then there may be something wrong with your receiver or your speaker.

Well I do not know how is on your model, usually it is all on the same mainboard. if its transistors you change the transistors , or there may be a thermic swithch that turn system off.
You should also consider that may be a fault on some of the control chipset.
A problem of this kind won't be an easy DIY unless you have a good background.
I do not have diagrams or schematics for your model, If I find some, I will send them tomorrow.


Leave your denon unplugged overnight, place it away from other devices, until you fix the problem.

Give me your location if you also need directions for local service support.

I will post back tomorrow
