Needs to be reset or fuse blown. Take to repair shop, cover has to be taken off and fuse replaced. You could fix it yourself but the warranty won't be honored. Do it yourself electronic shop should have a replacement fuse, may have to be soldered in place. Repair shop, should cost around $30.00 to $45.00 to fix, price of fuse $4.00 to $6.00. Your choice.

SOURCE: Denon DRA-37 Receiver-Remote lock on. Need to unlock.

Refer to the "Initialization of the Microprocessor" section of the manual (page 16 of the PDF version of the manual).
1) Turn the unit OFF using the On/Off switch (not the standby switch).
2) Depress both the Speaker A and B switches, and turn the Power ON.
3) The entire display should flash at 1-second intervals. The microprocessor should be reset, and the remote should be unlocked.

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.

I have acarver receiver mxr 130 receiver no sound output to speakers but desplay is lit

I know this is a old post but check all your connections.

There is a common issue with a lot of these recievers that have no output and typically it is the protection relays out to the speakers that fail. There is a person on ebay that sells these replacement relays. link is here. thanks

It might be a problem with the cable you are using itself. Check the connection and try a different cable. What kind of cable are you using for audio?

Digital Audio Input isn't working

try to reset the receiver (note: all your settings will be lost) :
1 Switch off the unit using the main unit's power switch.
2 Hold the following SPEAKER A button and B button, and turn the main unit's power switch.
3 Check that the entire display is flashing with an interval of about 1 second, and release your fingers from the 2 buttons and the microprocessor will be initialize

assign inputs if necessory and check sound again. If no luck your receiver most likely has a problem with digital board and you need to send it to a repair facility.

Front display is totally dark. AVR keeps operating.

Do a soft reset. Turn off the system using the main switch on the back of the unit, then unplug it for 3 minutes. This should fix it.
Also consider investing in a power stabilizer as the avr is quite sensitive to power fluctuation.

Looks like the Power relay is switching off and on by itself. Chances are that a power capacitor might be going weak. Get in touch with a Harmon technician to fix this.

I have this onkyo receiver and while we were watching tv, the audio just cut out and never came back. we've reset the receiver, checked the connections and no sound anywhere. when we power up our system,...

My SR607 also cuts out from time to time. My experience is that this is an issue of overheating, and protection circuits shut the thing down. Once it cools, seems to work ok. I have plenty of space around the unit, but still it seems to overheat, especially when playing hi-def / digital audio material.

Twice now my Pioneer VSX-819H has shut down. Can not get any power to it. The first time I'm sure the phono pre-amp caused a surge. I no longer have it hooked up. The servicer said nothing was wrong and...

I found this for the VSX918, 818. Perhaps it's similar.

The power does not turn on. • Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.
• Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.
The receiver suddenly switches off and the power indicator
• After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

Resetting the main unit
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the ADVANCED SURROUND button, press and hold the
STANDBY/ON button for about three
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ‘
ST –’. OK?
shows in the display.
4 Press SOUND RETRIEVER to confirm.
appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.

Sound cuts out- cable tv

I had the same problem when I installed the new HD Comcast cable box (DCH3200), initially with my CRT through RF, then with my HDTV through HDMI. Problem solved when I replaced the box with the Comcast RNG110 I got from my local Comcast. It is a neat miniaturized box and it works extremely well on HD. There is no power switch on the box so before activation do not forget to put it on with the remote (cable, power, the green light will come on).
