Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver

1 Answer

My RC-969 will not turn my AVR-3805 on or off, even with the amp power button in standby mode. All other functions are normal. Any ideas?

    The receiver retains all functionality without the remote AND all other IR functions on the remote function normally.

    Note: This programmable remote does not have normal "buttons" for most functions except unit on/off. It is a touchscreen remote. However, there is the normal on/off buttons at the top of the remote that are supposed to turn the receiver on and off. They do nothing! They used to work! The touchscreen portion is programmable, but doesn't seem to accept program inputs. The on/off buttons are not programmable. I've had the unit for several years. Time for a new remote?

First will the receiver still work and have all functionality without the remote, Such as if you use the controls on the unit?
Cause if the remote functions normally to change a tv or control a dvd player. Then the ir sensor on the receiver may be at fault. But if you can provide me with some more information on the unit. I can instruct you through just about anything on it. Thanks, Midwest-tek

    To test if the remote is working on those buttons that are at the top. Take a Camera phone, turn the camera on, then have someone hit the buttons and look on the camera phone to see if it light up white. If it lights up on the screen of the cell phone camera then the remote is still working and all buttons are sending there I/R signals

Denon AVR-3200 wont go into standby mode


Not sure what you mean by standby mode. The power button on most of the audio remotes I deal with merely turns the equipment on and off.

I have a AVR 3805 running my theater room. I'm not getting sound. How do I reset it? My sound guy did that once before and it worked. He cant get here for 2 days though... Any ideas


Turn off main power, press "direct" and "pure direct" simultaneously while turning main power on. The display starts blinking, reset is done.

Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working


time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals

now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).

Denon RC 969 Remote .Not Lighting up anymore ?.


These remotes are known to be weak, Denon is aware of the problem, here in the Netherlands they've sold out. Spare part no longer available. Try an older remote to an Denon AVR. these will work for say, 98% and are more reliable.

Component out doesn't work on Denon AVR-3805


You can try resetting the unit, it is a procedure that can make things start working again. Be aware that it will put all settings back to factory defaults, and you will need to go thru and set everything back up again. If it does not work, then you most likely have a component failure that will require serious electronic troubleshooting and this would be best done by a professional.

Here is the reset procedure.

1. Turn power off with the main power switch on the front display, this should make the red led go out. There are 2 power switches on these Denon's. One is a bigger switch and is used most often, the other is a small mechanical switch that is normally left turned on at all times.

2. Hold down the "Direct" and "Pure Direct" buttons together (both at the same time) and while holding them down you turn the power back on again with that little power switch you just turned off.

You should see all the lights in the display light up and then it will turn on to the default setting which, if my memory is right, will be the tuner at it's lowest setting.

Then go thru and reset everything back the way you like it and need it. Make sure that all the video inputs are properly set for each function so you are not trying to get a composite signal out of a function that may be set for S-video or something like that.

Hope this is some help for you.

Denon AVR-3805


It's likely that you have shorted some speaker outputs, I had that problem and sorted it. Unfortunately it does mean replacing some output transistors..the devices are dificult to get to just to add insult to injury. They are the devices that are mounted directly onto the large heatsink and solder connected to the bottom circuit board. You only have to change the matched pair that you have blown....tricky to identify which ones without some electronics knowledge. The power output section does have some fuses to protect it but sadly these do not appear to be fast enough to stop "one" from damaging the power output stage if you unfortunately short outputs. The transistors are available from Farnell, use pin compatible replacements SAP15N and SAP15P.....all the best. Doctor Bill
