Question about Audio & Video Receivers
SOURCE: No Power
I mwas gonna suggest that you need the speakers attached but you stated later that it did the same thing with the speakers attached. The unit switching off after it checks its self is NOT a normal thing. TAKE IT BACK BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!! GOOD lUCK

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.
When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.
If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.
If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.
On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".
If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.
I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.
If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.
If I can be of any further help, let me know.

Try unplugging the entire unit and letting it sit for 5 minutes. See if this helps. If not, you need to do a complete reboot, which will cause you to lose your settings, but will probably solve your problem. To do a complete reboot, you will need to hold down two of the front bottons on the front panel. I'm not sure which, so either consult your manual or see other posts here which describe the reboot process for Denons. Hope this helps.

First lets make sure the remote is in the right mode, in the center of the remote are two slider switches, one on the left and one on the right
make sure the one on the right is in the Audio position and switch on the right should be in the cd position if this does not help check out the link and page 25

It's probably NOT the capacitor.
I repair these kind of things for a living.
It's most likely a power transistor or two.
And it shouldnt cost 300 to fix either..Unless the tech is incompetent.
Dont let someone rip you off
