Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I purchased my Denon AVR-987 about 16 months ago from Circuit city and did not purchase the extended warranty. I has been working fine, until just recently, The on button blinks, then turns off automatically. I can't get it to stay on. It seems like some sort of safety thing. I have been able to get it to stay on a couple of times when it is very low on volume. Then when you turn up the volume, just a little, it automatically shuts off. Or when I have been able to get it to stay on in Sterio mode and very low volume, then I turn the surround mode on, it immediatly turns itself off. I don't know what to do. I don't know if it is broken or if there has been something changed where some safety shutoff has been enabled. Does anybody know what this is? or what I should do to get it to work?

In all likelyhood, there is a problem with one of the surround amplifiers. With the volume really low, there is no current draw in the amp section. This unit requires service. Expect a parts cost in the $20-$40 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost.

Denon AVR 789 no display


Time to send back to Denon (seriously). Hopefully you have a warranty on your product (I bought mine at Fry's and it took a few months for the warranty work to be performed). Good luck!

I have a denon avr-4802 receiver. I am looking to purchase new speakers for this system, but don't want to put too much into the speakers. Will the speakers from a denon s-302 work on this receiver? ...

Page 10. The S-302 uses a proprietary D-Sub25 system cable to the DSW-S302 subwoofer. Don't know if or why it has more than 2 active conductors. The other speakers have removable cable ends so they might work just fine.

Use the twin phono audio out on tv to twin phono audio in on Denon AVR-1707 this should work absolutely fine as long as your using an analogue input on the tv if HDMI you would need to purchase a Digitial to analogue audio converter. Hope this helps

Protection circuit momentary activation. Not heat/speaker problem


Is it possible for you to lower the source level? if yes go ahead...

There is an automatic Dialogue normalisation function in Denon which is activated to reduce overly bright input signals. ( most movies have wide variation in sound levels and therefore this function is avaialble). (see page45 of your user manual).

When your system worked fine with the AVR 2808CI, then why is it giving problem with AVR 3808CI....???? You must ask Denon.

Protection circuits are activated when:
1). There is rise of internal temperature.
2).Core wires of the speakers are touching each other or a core wire is sticking out of the terminal and touching the set's rear panel or the speaker itself has a problem.
3). Speakers with an impedance other than specified are being used.
or
4). the set is damamged or has bad solder / dry solder connection .

If your AVR is new, please do not accept, the set could be faulty. The protection circuits should not be activated unless any of the above happen.

You must know, at times the protection circuits are not fast enough and it could burn some of the transistors on the power output circuit. With time, the solders on the circuit board could give way and give you problems later on.

You must sort out with Denon if the AVR is under warranty.

Best of Luck.

DENON AVR 2308 no longer works only after 3 weeks of purchase!!!


You need to get more details. What component has failed that makes them believe that a surge caused the problem. There is usually a thermal fuse inside of the main power transformer that CAN be effected by power surges. WIthout more details, I really can't rpovide any ammunition for your claim. Please request exact details from the servicer.

Thanks,
Dan

Cant Access System Setup on Denon AVR-588


Are you connected with video cables to a tv or "monitor" this is more than likely were the setup is visible for speaker configuration, input assignment etc, most denon receivers work this way so I would suspect you need to re-check the video connection until a set-up picture appears.

Denon avr-1907 sound from TV stopped working


Help with hooking PS3 to a Denon Receiver. It worked before, but I had to move everything to a different location and when I hooked it back up the PS3 has sound but no picture. I have it hooked directly to the receiver with and HDMI cable (the receiver is hooked up to our cable box which is directly hooked to the tv via HDMI cable).
