OK.....there was a strange thing with this receiver......make sure that you are not on " headphones only ". Had a customer with the same problem. As for the fan, it doesnt run constantly. It only runs when the amp is hot enought to require extra cooling.....HOWEVER....there was a problem with the fans on these units, so much so, that Denon released a modification for the 3300 including a new fan and some upgraded circuitry.

If the unit is not flasning " protection ", or " overload" should be OK., however I would spend a few bucks and get the fan mod installed.....these are good sounding units and ecen though it does not have Dolby PL II, and DTS-ES, I have owned a couple of them and find that they sound better than most new ones. Get out your owners manual and look in the headphone section. If memory serves me well, there is even a way to do it with the remote. Good luck.... Rob

Avr3300 denon receiver sound cut in out

The problem is in the audio output section, or cracked solder connections on the main printed circuit board. But! check the speaker wires for shorts first, if okay! you will need a professional to take this further.

  • if you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver, AVR-3300 ** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
AVR-3300 RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Your TV sound is on the

I have an avr 3200 can it use 2 coaxial inputs and how good is the sound quality compared to newer avrs

Denon being one of the best names in the biz and this being an upper-crust modfel, I'd say anyone without a 'golden-ear' would be hard pressed to t\distinguish its sound from any other amplifier in existence.

The Denon site doesn't list and AVR-3200, but the AVR-3300 has 1 coaxial digital audio and 3 optical digital audio inputs.

If you're looking to run multiple coaxial devices and there aren't enough inputs this is what I do...

Helpful hint: Coaxial digital audio cables can be joined using an RCA cable splitter so they can share a given input or distribute a given output to multiple places. You just have to remember to have only the DESIRED units turned on when sharing or there will be digital confusion on the buss and it will result in silence or horrendous noise.

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.

No sound from new sony bravia to denon avr 1610

TV's are not your best source of audio. Get the TV-related audio digitally from the source, NOT the TV.

Denon AVR-3300 component channel switch burnout?

hi there, i don't have a solution unfortuantely, but i may have the same problem. I have a denon 2802 av receiver, i bought it second hand and I can't seem to get the component video in / out working. Are you supposed to just plug it in and it works? Because I can't find any buttons or settings to select component in / out as my input / output sources?

No sound from Sub.... from my Denon AVR-2700, not AVR-3300, Yeah its old!

if the subwoofer is on in the reciecer settings then maybe the amp is not getting the signal or the amp is not amplifying
try unplugging the output of the sub then turn off the reciever for a min. then turn it on wait , then plug the sub in
if that don't work then test the sub output with a stereo that has a audio input
also test the subwoofer with a audio output to it( only a positive and a negitive wire for sub)

Intermittent audio output

It's quite possible one of the relays is failing that is part of the switch between audio output choices.  Do you notice any output difference between a certain output (i.e. dvd, tape etc)or is that point arbitrary?
