Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Headphone socket I have a Denon 1906 receiver. A headphone plug came apart inside the headphone socket, now the receiver thinks there's headphones plugged in all the time, so I can't get any sound at all. Do I need to have the whole socket replaced?

    The headphone socket is mounted on a small PCB separate from the main PCB unit. The socket itself is completely enclosed in plastic, so I can't push the piece out from behind.

    I'm thinking the only thing that can be done is to have the socket replaced, but I don't know if it's a proprietary piece that Denon will charge loads for. Also, I heard their service takes months and I'm not prepared to wait that long.

    Will the entire smaller PCB need replacing, or is the socket a generic part that could easily be removed and replaced?

    1. From the bottom

    2. No, it's all black, and appears to be completely sealed

    I am in England. I'm not speaking from my own experience on this repair matter, but several people I've spoken to have said getting their equipment repaired through Denon has been a nightmare. Long delays, etc.

    Sorry about the 'Thanks for trying' rating. I had no idea it was perceived that way!

Hi twelvetwelve

Are you able to get access to the rear of the socket and use a small screwdriver to push out the parts of the plug that have come adrift inside the socket? You may have to actually remove the socket from its PCB to get access. If you cannot remove the offending parts, then you may have to replace the socket. There is not alot more that you can do unfortunatly.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

    Hi again, The socket is supplied as a spare part without the PCB, and although quite common socket 6.5mm stereo jack, , may be difficult to source a generic part to fit the pin layout and switching options required for your unit.
    I have over the last 25 years repaired several different units with your problem, and have not had to replace a socket yet!!. There is generally a way to sort it out without replacing it. If you can bear with me, I am sure that we can come up with a solution. A couple of questions for you.

    1. Does the PCB mount from the bottom or the rear of the socket.

    2. Does the socket has a clear plastic top.
    I am downloading a service manual from here as we speak to help me to help you sort out the problem. My business Brisbane Electronics Denon authorised service agent here in Brisbane, Australia for 17 years till 2003. You would have had no problems or delays with service from my own point of veiw. Where abouts in the world are you?

    A thanks for trying rating generally is reserved for a poor response to a question raised in this forum. I am certain that I have more to offer you than a "Thanks for trying" rating accomadates. I will continue to assist and help to sort out the problem with you if you are able to upgrade the rating that you have given me. :)

My p.c does not get any drivers for my sansui bluetooth headphones.

If you have other blue tooth devices working correctly, do a search for new devices on your blue tooth software. Pair the headphones using the blue tooth software.

They won't sync with bluetooth iphone 6

Probably you won't be happy with my answer but sometimes happens. If won't sync, you can't do anything.. A question of "conflicts" and compatibility. I never could sync my LG headphones with my cellphone even if it did sync perfectly with a Samsung Galaxy III!

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?

Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:

To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.
