If you have the owner manual check for reset and reset the unit. If you don?t have the manual unplug the power cable for a wile and then try again. Good Luck Toufic Malek

SOURCE: Denon AVR-1602 Overheated!
Hold on......there are 4 small resistors in the power supply that open up ( no longer work ). This is a VERY COMMON PROBLEM for 01-02-03 model Denons. They are "flameproof" resistors, so when they burn open, there is no trace of a problem, they look normal. This pic is from a 1601 which is almost identical. The resistors are missing from the picture, but you can see where it is marked R 141, R142, R143, R 148.
If your shop measures across these resistors and they are more than 10 ohms, then they are blown, and this is your problem. These should each be replaced with a 1 ohm 1/2 watt Metal Film Flameproof resistor. You must also remember that the little 1602 is NOT a professional unit, designed to be cranked for hours on end. It is a home theatre receiver.
If this solves your problem, be happy and dont beat your receiver to death. .....THIS BEING SAID.....the other reason that these blow is because one or more channels are blown and drawing too much current from the power supply. IF that is the case, be prepared for a big bill. DO NOT try and fix this yourself, as the entire receiver must be taken apart , right down to the bare chassis to get this board out. Leave it for a professional. Have them check the resistors first, it only takes about 10 minutes to get the cover off, check the resistors and put the cover back on........hope this helps... Rob

SOURCE: Denon AVR 2106 clicking noise
I like when a user is observant and curious. That will help immensely in resolving this problem.
What source(s) are always involved with the problem?
You imply it is observable with output video to the TV - "only when there is movement on my tv screen and it stops in still screen". That sounds like a digital pathway problem of some sort as any data errors would eventually escalate to something audible or visible to you once the hardware and correction algorhythms are exhausted. The clicking inside the receiver could be its efforts to resynchronize with a bad data stream. Hence, I'd like you to isolate the ins and outs that fail all the time and find the probable single source of the problem.
Try this: put a digital source on and select/deselect it for listening or viewing. Does it make the click in that brief time it's 'thinking' before you hear the source? That would be the 'normal' sound. My Pioneer does it once per source switch. Repeated clicking would mean it's struggling.
I'm betting you have an optical or hdmi cable that's flaky or not in tight and straight. Or, if only one extternal source is involved we follow that back.
