Unit is in protect mode there are a few problems that can trigger protect mode the most common is blown channel (shorted outputs). Sometimes one of the 15v regulators may go bad causing imbalance of supplys triggering protect mode. Also sometimes a bad solder connection could cause unit to go into protect also. I work for Denon authorzied repair center in Michigan if your nearby and Shipping to Michigan is economical let me know kstahl65@att.net

Units dc protect mode is probably activating due to Blown channel (shorted output transistors) I work for a Denon Authorized repair Center in Michigan If shipping to Michigan is economical let me know kstahl65@att.net

SOURCE: denon avr 2105 died (3 times) dead AVR2105 faulty avr-2105

If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.

It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.

I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.

I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).

I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.

Just waiting for them to arrive.

An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.

Hope thats of use!

SOURCE: Denon AVR -1604 Powers off after 3 seconds

Check in the amp section for a short on the output transistors. It may need a resistor or two also. I doubt that it would be in the power supply.

SOURCE: Turning volume up on my Denon AVR-485 AMP causes it to turn off

Speaker Impedance:
When speaker systems A and B are used separately, speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 ohms can be connected for use as front speakers
Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the same time if their impedance is less than 12 ohms.
The protector circuit may be activated of the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes with an impedance lower than specified are connected.

Denon PMA 6.5 amp keeps turning off and the green light flashes if the volume is turned up more than a quarter...please help


I have seen this identical problem before.
It was a problem in the connection points of the speaker wiring.

You could try removing every cable except the powercable.
Is the device having the same problems if you try that?
If not, you have found your problem
if so, unfortunately whatever it is, you should contact Denon or a local repairshop.

How can I connect a subwoofer to this device (denon pma-520) http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/denon/pma-520.shtml?destination=node%2F14208


Look around for a subwoofer which has speaker level inputs.
Something like this;

The only safe way to do this us to connect the sub to one of the other speaker outputs using a "speaker selector" switch. For example, you would go out of the receivers left speaker output, into the selector switch then out of the selector switch into the sub and the left speaker. There really is no other way.

Hi, i have a Denon PMA 735 R amplifier which shuts down when volume increases suddenly.


Sounds like you have output transistor problems. Does it have a red protection light that comes on when it shuts down? If it does it will need serviced.

I have a Denon PMA 500V amplifier. all of the output fuses were blown so I replaced them but the unit still doesn't work. Any suggestions?


hi.
Did you checked balanced impedance?load speaker impedance vs PA output?or PA might over driven,causing a trouble on the pre-amp to power amp circuits and components damage,
need to recheck related components on the pre-driver up to main output section,

Note: That,blowing of fuses with the same rating is an indication of trouble/shorted in a circuits that driven on it,

Thanks and good luck

My Denon PMA-900V integrated amp has distortion in the left channel. When it is cold it is very minor, as it heats up and is played at louder volume the distortion is much worse.


The good news is that it's in one channel, which means you have the right channel parts to compare it with. Now the bad news whatever causing it and it's likely to be a semi-conductor (transistor or IC) has to be replaced. However finding it is easier than you might think. For a start it's going to be hot to touch. And you can get get it to stop being hot, while the amps on, so correcting the fault, for a while. You do this by spraying it with Servisol Super Freezer spray. You have to have the amp running for this. Find the left channel amp and wait while it goes bad. Then spray (one at a time) any part you suspect. If the sound returns to normal, you have found the faulty part! To prove it spray the same in the right channel. That shouldn't change.
You can get the freezer spray from your local electric parts shop (such as Maplin UK).

Hi , I have a denon pma-2000r amp in it stuck in stand by mode, i don't have original remote control, is it possible to turn it on without remote control or reset to factory settings? Many thanks!


That model shouldnt be stuck in stand-by
Are all the speakers connected?
If it wont properly turn on then there is a fault being detected. Could be disconnected speakers / bad speaker or a power supply issue

Denon Amp (PMA-700AE) ignores the signal from CD Player DCD-700


If you can follow the circuit from the input of the cd play socket inside the amp itself you might come accross a Memory Retention Capacitor that supplies an IC. If you do. I can't for certain say one will be there, I would replace it, it might be the cause of the lost memory of your device.
If you don't know what a M R C looks like, they are like electrolytic types, but haven the appearance of being squashed. The value will be low only 0.22uf etc and the volts very low say 5.5. The PC board marking will be different to a normal capictor.
