Question about Denon AVR-683 Receiver

1 Answer

My denon receiver AVR-683, is part of a home theatre setup with a computer. When we play TV, we get audio with a display of "digital". However, when we play DVD's, we get no sound and the display is "analog". Is there a way to switch to digital for DVD's?

Yes. You have 2 options:
1 - if the dvd player has an HDMI connector then this is all you'll need. Just make sure that in the menu the HDMI is set as the source of the sound.
2 - if the player hasn't a HDMI connector then you must use the TOSLINK - the optical ling. For that you will have to buy a special optical cable and set the TOSLINK as the source of the sound from the menu.
The exact procedure on how you change the audio source in the menu is explained in depth (and on several pages) in the user manual of the Denon.

My DENON AVR-4308CI HOME has no sound. Everything comes on as it should and unit looks great but no audio comes out. It's had off and on issues since I bought it, but firmware helped with some. Now, no...


This may require quite a bit more info. Verify that there are no shorts in the speaker connections to the Denon - it has a short detection circuit that will shut down the audio amps in the event of a short. If you are using optical or coaxial digital input for you audio - verify that the correct digital input has been assigned to the component selected on the Source Select dial: Menu > Source Select > Assign > Digital. If this is an HDMI connection go into the HDMI setup menu and select Audio: AMP: Menu > Manual Setup > HDMI Setup > Audio > AMP. If it is set to TV the audio passes through the AMP without being decoded and goes to the TV instead: there is no 'Both' setting.

RE: Denon AVR 3300 - I cannot get the system setup menu to display on Phillips P50PFP5332D tv screen? All connected components work and sound great, but I cannot see Denon's Setup menu on tv to a


I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv.
The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source.
Hope that helps!

Denon AVR-2309C1 will not play sound through


Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot

Denon AVR-688 Dolby Digital issues


IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO CONNECT ANALOG AUDIO IN ADDITION TO THE OPTICAL, COAXIAL OR HDMI AUDIO CONNECTION. IF USING OPTICAL OR COAXIAL CONNECTIONS BE SURE TO CONFIGURE IT IN THE RECEIVERS DIGITAL ASSIGNMENT AREA IN SETUP.
ALSO, ON THE FRONT OF THE RECEIVER IS AN INPUT MODE BUTTON, PRESS THIS BUTTON UNTIL AUTO IS DISPLAYED

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

Denon AVR-683 won't stay on


replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. i had the exact same problem with mine and once i replaced the capacitors it powered up and stayed on and worked perfect.
these capacitors tend to fail as they're of poor quality.
this fault is very common on denon receivers, especially the later models.

hope this helps?
