Question about Denon AVR-1803 Receiver

1 Answer

Zone 2 speakers will play from tuner but not from cd player

I really need some help. I have a Denon AVR 1803/883 receiver hooked up to two zones. The main zone is set up with Bose speakers operating from a powered subwoofer. I also have two outdoor speakers hooked up to Zone 2. Everything was working fine until I replaced my CD player. Now the CDs play in the Main zone when the receiver is set to DVD, and the Zone 2 speakers do not play from the CDs at all, whether Zone 2 is set to DVD or CD. Strangely, the Zone 2 speakers play fine when playing from the tuner or the TV audio. Almost impossible to get to the wiring behind the receiver as it is in an enormous wall unit about 4 inches from a wall behind the wall unit. I can get some of the components out from the wall unit, but not the receiver, Too many wires connected to it with almost no slack. Please help. Jerry

    MY problem is very similar. My Main zone speakers will play from tuner, tv, dvd but not cd. My Zone 2 speakers play from Cd just fine.

    Indoor speakers work great.... except my outdoor speakers stopped working altogether, regardless if TV, DVD, etc is selected. Wiring is all brand new and working properly. I hit some buttons on my harmony remote and screwed up the whole thing. You need a degree in rocket science to work this remote and system. Please help.

    I've had the exact same problem and I believe I know what's causing the problem. I'm pretty sure that I read in the owner's manual (still available online) that the zone 2 speaker output only handles analog signals (i.e. radio turner, some tv outputs, some cd outputs) but not digital signals (most cd/dvd outputs, digital cable outputs, etc.). I couldn't get anything to play on my Zone 2 speakers until I switched my receiver over from "auto-select" to "analog" and even then, I could only hear the radio tuner. Thoughts?

    My Zone 2 speakers stopped working from the TV/DBS source, while they do work from the Tuner source. Everything worked fine a few days ago. I don't know what has caused the change!

Try to check the audio setting of the player. If you user using optical or coaxial then the audio out put format setting should be Raw other wise it should be PCM. You will see the setting if you go through the menu of the player

Why won't my CD Player won't play CD's?


the laser that reads the cd is probably dirty - if you have a can of compressed air - insert the nozzle into the cd player and blast away any dust and debris - if this doesn't help - there are cd cleaning discs available at any major retailer - just insert the cd and it cleans the laser - worst case scenario - buy a new cd player - the prices have really come down - I replaced mine with the trim kit and wire harness for $100 - only took about 1 hour - but you do need to buy the Ford stereo removal tools (available also at any good stereo store)
