Question about Denon AVR-3300 Receiver
The receiver had been working fine until yesterday. Now when I select a mode like the 5 channel stereo or "matrix" it sounds really scratchy from all speakers. It sounds fine if I switch back to stereo or direct (but the sound only then comes out from the front left and right speakers). I disconnected and reconnected all the speakers. This is true for playing even the radio. Is the receiver busted and can it be fixed? Did we do anything to cause this problem?
Thanks for your help,
It may sound silly, but can you check all your speaker cables again and confirm whether they are connected to the right connections. please check all cables as also the severed one and please repair it also.
Now please go to the system-set-up and do an auto setup and set up your speakers. Listen to the test tones and confirm that they are coming out of the correct speaker.
Once these are set, then if still there is mismatch of sounds, then we could further trouble shoot.

read your manual well and double check all your connections,make sure the remote is working, check the battery contacts in it too. If you haven't got a manual, obtain one.

Ohhhhhh, so it has NEVER worked for YOU and it needed fixing when you got it. That changes everything. And you don't have the manual??
You can find the manual on Retrevo.com. Just register and download it. You're going to need it to make use of this unit anyway.
Make sure everything is connected correctly.
Look it over and play around with it. Speaker setup needs to be done before anything else. Did you get the microphone that comes with it? If not, go to page 23 and start there.

I'm pretty sure you mean "LFE + Main".
You need to identify the speakers to the receiver as Large or Small regarding their bass-handling capacity more than their actual size.
"LFE" removes the possibly overloading bass in a given speaker channel containing 'small' speakers and sends it to the subwoofer.
"LFE + Main" is sort of explained on page 29 "Bass Setting". The intent of LFE+Main is to task your subwoofer with the bass that ALSO exists on all other speaker channels regardless of their ability to handle it all by themselves. As you can imagine, this might make the subwoofer respond to sonic events that are actually supposed to be directional from, say, the rear channel(s). In that case the event might seem to come from wherever the sub is located instead of the intended direction; or at the very least it might seem to come from both places which is probably not what the sound engineers intended when they recorded the piece.
Having full-range speakers 360-degrees around PLUS a subwoofer, I don't subscribe to the 'bass-is-non-directional' school of thought. If you've ever felt the concussion from and subconsciously glanced toward one of the speakers after, say, a huge explosion, the system is working.
