AVR-745 Firmware upgrade

I was upgrading to the newer firmware and while downloading the upgrade to my Receiver the computer froze halfway to the update. Had to rreboot the PC and turn on the receiver again however all I get now is standby mode with no display. Tried resetting Reciever but only powers up to standby mode.
Is there hope or am I doomed...warranty is expired.

Power off using the main power button behind the door for 10 seconds. Turn the unit back on and place in standby (amber power light). Press and hold the "SUR MODE" and "TUN MODE" buttons and the same time until the unit resets itself. You should be good to go after that.

I have done an update in the past/ ONE Thing/ you do not attempt to do an update at the same time you download the firmware update.
You always download the update/ Open/ Read the instruction and follow them as directed.
An Yes/ it is possible that you might be doomed/ but I would go back/ Download the update with out being connected to the reciever/ Open the download/ Make a folder for it to uncompresse to. Choose that folder when prompted as to where it is sent when uncompressing.
Then go to that folder and READ EVERYTHING FIRST. There is a folder in there that is named to read first.
Once you have read it/ you will see that it is easy to do/ and see your mistake.
I believe that if you try it again, (even though your reciever info is screwed up) it will take the full update.
Sorry about the caps/ I am not trying to yell or what every they say about caps. It just is really important to read everything first. If you don't think you understand what you read/ Read it untill you do understand it. Do more research until you do.

HOW TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE


There may not be any facility to update the firmware for this model without taking to the service center. This model does not have any device input like SD card or internet connection that would enable download of firmware upgrade. The later Denon models have this capability.

You will have to consult the local Denon service center for advise.

Denon AVR-1912 firmware upgrade failed


I'm having the same problem, Denon has taken down the firmware upgrade for yours ( and mine) AVR-1912. My receiver is also stuck in the update fail loop. Supposedly they will have it back up, but I don't know the timeframe.

Lots of others are having the problem with the firmware upgrade. Go to
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1334369/the-official-denon-avr-xx12-model-owners-thread/16380

and that should help you out, though I can't say how much. I've gone as far as resetting the microprocessor, but it keeps trying to update, and then fails...

DENON AVR-1912 PS3 ISSUE


You might just have a handshaking issue between your PS3 and your receiver. See if there are any firmware upgrades for your PS3, Receiver or both. This usually takes care of the problem. If not - your receiver has a 2 or 3 year MFG Warranty. Have it checked out or exchanged.

I have Harman kardon AVR 630 and I have trying upgrade for better performance but during the upgrade the problem occured. I have contacted the harman service it seems a lot of money required.


If it failed during the upgrade after it flashed the memory and before it reinstalled the new firmware it has to go in for service. And it will be over 100 USD. est.

Firmware upgrade failure


Try this for the reset
First turn the unit off then
hold down the "Pure Direct" and the "Direct" buttons on the display at the same time. And while you are still holding them down turn the unit on with the power button on the display.
this should reset the microprocessor.

You will need to put all custom settings back in.

Let me know if this helps.

Cant get rear speakers to Work AVR 745 7.2 Surround!!!


Another way to solve this rear speakers problems is to go to the equalizer and have the system recognizes the sound coming out of all speakers. The AVR 745 comes with a microphone on the stick, using that to run the manual equalizer. It is the manual equalizer will set the rear speakers.

PS3


Avr 745 HDMI only output 1080i not 1080p. Your PS3 is capable of 1080p. You have to adjust your PS3 to 1080i then your screen will work. I hope Harman will come up with the upgrade for HDMI that can output 1080p otherwise you have to suffer or stuck with 1080i. Hope this will solve your problems.

DVD wont play in colour


First we need to know how you are relating the video problem to the receiver. What video inputs are you using from your DVD player to the receiver, and from the receiver to the display you are using. What display are you using? The receiver does not control or modify any video sources... it only selects (switches) them, and is basically just a pass through.
