Denon 3808ci was reinstalling the unit into its cabinet, heard a pop, no flash or smell, when i used the soft power to switch the unit off. it still powers on and the display seems to be working. it will change inputs, but i can not get any audio or vidieo, digital or analog. previously i had some problems with a non working hdmi input and i may have been pluged into it at the time of the incident. i also lost audio on a diffrent hdmi input but the video was ok i swith to multi channel audio until i could look at it and it worked that way. any help that you may have will be much appriciated

My denon 3808ci reciver has sound out put when you connect head phones but nothing coming out of the speakers when the head phones are disconnected?


hi,
In all receivers when you connect the headphone it will swich off the speakers. Its normal. When you use the headphone there is no need for external speakers its the principle behind this. .
ok

How do I configure my denon avr3808ci to play 7:1

First, you must have all 7 primary speakers plus a powered suboofer attached. Page 9

Page 25 describes how automatic detection and adjustment is achieved. Page 28 for manual speaker setup.

Assign digital inputs. Page 39.

Then feed it appropriate 7.1-compatible material. page 40

Dish HD-DVR connected to a Denon 3808ci via an HDMI cable. Problem is periodically, the screen goes black for a split second and then comes back. Rewind and play again the blackout doesn't repeat. When...


Your'e losing digital data from Dish or the DVR. Since even live TV is through the DVR it is always a potential problem when anything glitches. That it doesn't repeat on immediate rewind/playback says the data made it to the hard drive ok.

The Denon is only defaulting back to an analog audio feed upon loss of the digital (preferred) one.

If it affects the video AND audio simultaneously the cause is something common to them.

I'd look at HDMI cabling into the Denon from the DVR.

Don't blame the Denon just yet.

My $.02:

I'd skip the video right past the Denon to the TV/Monitor even if it means using component cables instead of HDMI, but keep digital audio coming in from the DVR. Added cabling and connections never improve anything. Plus, HDMI cables are expensive.

It would be interesting to see if the problem comes back and affects only the audio or the video.

If you use optical cable make sure it has smooth flowing curves and no small-radius bends that would lose light power.

I was watching a movie on my denon avr-3808ci and all of a sudden it made a loud sound and it shut off. The power button was flashing red and wne I tried to turn it on, the power button would turn green...


probably one of your speakers has blown.. disconnect them all. turn the reciever on.
if this works turn it off connect one speaker and turn it on.. keep going until it goes red...
when you find the speaker discennect all the other speakers keep this one connected and confirm that it is this speaker giving issues.

if the amp doesn't come on with all speakers disconnected, remove the visual outs and start it with nothing connected. isolate the issue if this works. otherwise it might be your amp.

NO GUI displayed


I had a similar problem with my Denon 3808 after it had the protection circuit tripped. First all I would get is a blue screen with sound, then after powering the unit off I got the display back, but all of the on screen GUI menus were gone. I could tell that the menu button worked because display located physically on the recever worked. I reset/rebooted the system (follow the directions in manual) and everything came back. Be aware by resetting the system any customization you have done will be lost. Hope that helps

What is the right rs232 cable to connect a Denon 3808CI reciever and a Phillips RFX9600 serial extender


OK LOOKING AT THE SPECS FOR THE EXTENDER YOU DO NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS, WHEN USING THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS YOU NEED RS232 CODE STRINGS TO CONTROL THE DENON OR ANYOTHER DEVICE THROUGH THIS EXTENDER USING THE RS232 CONNECTIONS.
IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CONNECT AN I/R EMITTER FROM AN MINI JACK I/R CONTROL PORT ON THE BACK AND THE OTHER END TO THE I/R WINDOW ON THE DENON
