I have a denon avr-1705 receiver which keeps shutting down and going into "standby" mode. I had the same issue with a yamaha rx-v590. I have a denon ipod plugged in and 4 speakers in to the "A" and 2 speakers for surround rears. what is causing these problems?

In my opinion, 4 speakers in to the "A" is basic cause of problem for both receivers. There should be Two Speakers (R and L) in A-Speaker as per manufacturer recommendation with correct impedance like 6 or 8 ohms.
Putting extra speakers actually lower the impedance and final amplifier output section becomes hot due to consumption of more current and got problem/ damaged. For that reason, protection circuit got activated and shut down receiver instantly to avoid further damage until bad parts got replaced.
Both receivers/ amplifiers need visual check by technician to replace defective output transistors/ chips to fix the issue.
Let me know if you have additional question.

    ok, thanks for the input. I am confused as to why the receivers have 2 separate Right and Left inputs, though. I switched half of the speakers to the "B" (and run them together with A) and have not yet experienced the same problem.

    Left and Right are two channels for stereo amplifier, these are exact same but separate circuits in receiver to drive two speakers at a time for good sound quality.
    Speaker-A is for 2 speakers that calls main speakers and Speaker-B arrangement for another two but internal impedance matching system put left speakers and right speakers in series to avoid output amplifier overload and to protect them from over heat.

AVR 1705 Denon shuts down to standby mode w/red light flashing

Hey, greetings.
First, disconnect all speakers. Try to turn on. If it does you have a short on spkrs. If not, turn off and REINITIALIZE. Find the right way on Google "(your model) factory reset". Normally you hold down both spkr buttons while you turn on, wait for flashing screen, 3 seconds, release buttons. If not, you need a tech. Could be shorted output transistors, but after many of these units it is usually the + or - 15 volt supply regulators. LUCK.

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,

Denon AVR-1705 Missing Video Functions?


What you need to do is connect all your devices to the Denon Using the best connections (Yellow Video=OK, S-Video=good, Component green-red-blue=better and HDMI=best. if you do not have a DVD that upconverts to 1080i or p when using HDMI, I would use component cables where available from your devices to the Denon other wise use the next best connection available and if connecting digital audio make a chart of all connection so you can setup everything when your ready for programming the Denon

Denon AVR-1705

seeing that its bleenking red it letting you know that the main capassitor to the transformer has blown and if you keep it pluged in it will in a short time allow the transformer to smoke and it can overheat and catch on fire.....NO GOOD. Its 1 of Denon's problem's....I see it quit often.
it will cost around 300.00 to fix.
Please let me know if I can Take it of your hands for the need of the left channel on another one.

By the way LET ME KNOW I do have 2 new Denon's an Onkyo and a Harmon Kardon I can give you at a cheeper price around 369.95 for a AVR788
Email or call me and I will give you 45.00 off ...OK...PayPal and 630-742-6587
