Question about Denon DN-S1200

Open Question

Hi, I have a Denon DNS1200 that recently has started giving me problems... It has started to randomly 'stick' sometimes after minutes of use and sometimes after just seconds! I say 'stick' and not stop cause although the music stops its as if you've held the platter down. As soon as this happens I can get no response from any key on the deck. I cant eject the disc or do anything!! I've now got to the stage where I cant use this deck anymore cause its just not reliable. The only way I can get it ti start working again is to either turn the unit off completely or sometimes if I slightly lift the platter it seems to release and start again??? Can someone please help me? Thanks, Rob

The tact switch behind the panel is being pushed in by a defective front panel button, the small switch is bad behind the button, or the volume control IC is bad. Good Luck

SOURCE: Does not recognise disc

Try to change the laser unitKSS-240A (opticals). In most cases problem solved. The "zik-zik" sound is made by the motors in the unit as the laser tries to read the CD.
Caution, after installing the new laserunit remove the short circuits on the laserunit itself. This it put there just to protect the laser from static energie faulure during repair.

SOURCE: Shutdown protection? HELP please

All of the Denon recievers I have repaired (over 100) that shut down after a very short time are going into protect mode. The display lights up and after about 10 seconds the display goes out and the standby led blinks red.
I have found that they have one of 3 possible problems and they all require that the reciever be taken apart and fixed at component level. No way to tell what your problem is until it gets put on a bench and troubleshot.

Problem 1. This is the most common problem. One of the front channels shorts out. On the big heat sink the front channels are at each end. It is the front left channel (close to the display) This requires that the output transistors be replaced as well as some driver transistors and some resistors and a capacitor. Lots of work for a blown channel. Denon has put out a bullitin to upgrade the bias transistor and change a couple of resistors to help compensate for this failure. That channel overheats more than any other channel.

Problem 2. There is a resistor that is right next to the preamp board that opens up. It is a 10 ohm 1 watt resistor and when it opens, it causes the unit to go into protect.

Problem 3. The +12 volt regulator fails. It is in the power supply area on a smal heat sink right next to the -12 volt regulator. Generic part number is KIA7812 It also causes the unit to go into protect.

Most decent repair shops can fix these from about $120 up to about $200. Depending on which problem it is and how fast they are at finding the problem. Most charge labor by the hour.

SOURCE: Denon 3910 won't load some dvds/cds and vibrates while trying.."disc error"!

I have the Denon 2900 (about 4 years of use) and until recently, suffered from the same (growing) problem. CD's were very difficult to start/read. I recently found advice which I tried and was succesful with. It was manually cleaning the laserlens. I took away the outer housing by unscrewing all off the on top (6), side (4) and the back (2) bolts. After that I took out the top plate of the laserunit which took two very little screws taking out. Now you are looking at the cd-tray with the lens. Take a very soft and clean cloth and moisten it a little bit with clean water (be very carefull with the moistening, don't allow any waterdrop to come out of the cloth into the laserlens while cleaning! Carefully clean the lens and dry it with a dry part of the same cloth. Replace the top plate and the outer housing and the player will recognize the discs like it's new again. Good luck!

You're drawing too much power from it. Sounds like maybe your sub is hooked up wrong, double check that.

We have a DENON L.C twin transformer amplifier PMA-735R that has an input selector that freaks out now and again. Recently it has gotten worse, it just goes back and forth between tuner and cd etc. for...


Hi Readers to of Fixya,
This entry is January 22, 2016.
I own a Denon PMA 735R which I bought new in 1999, it is very good Amp; starting about a few years ago the input selector would occasionally randomly jump from CD to Phono to Tape etc., but would always end up back at CD so it was not terribly annoying until a few days ago when it started happening all the time. I am a very knowledgeable electronics person (I built musical keyboards at one time) so my thought was just that it was a dust problem and I started with that premise. I fixed it using an Electrical Parts Cleaner spray and here is how I did it:
I unplugged it, removed the CD input RCA cables and removed the L & R speaker cables and took it off its shelf and set it on a towel on my soft sofa; I removed the casing by unscrewing four big silver screws on the sides (my model is silver) and the three small black screws on the back top; I removed the Input Selector indicator knob on the front and the Record Out Selector indicator knob and the Volume knob, I then removed the small nut that holds the three of them tightly in place to the front panel; I then stood it on its back so that the front was facing up; I then sprayed my Electrical Parts Cleaner spray into the Input Selector indicator post liberally and then put the knob back in place and kept turning the indicator back and forth for a few minutes to work the cleaner inside the post down into the circuit board connection; I did the same with the Record Out Selector indicator post and I did the same with the Volume post; I then put the small nuts back on the three posts and tightened them; I then put the knobs back on the three posts; I then stood it back on its normal upright position and put the casing back on and then the screws; I placed back on its shelf and hooked up the cables and switched it back on and played my CD's, it has been working perfectly fine. The whole process took less than 30 minutes.I hope this helps.

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.

It's a cable or connection.

The Denon apparently has an automatic selector to choose the digital input over the analog input if both are present (my Pioneer does this). The random switching is telling you the digital input is intermittently dropping out and coming back. You don't say if you're using the optical or coaxial digital interface. Coaxial is less prone to connection problems. If you use optical, make sure the ends are clicked in and there are no small radius bends in the cable. Tight curves reduce the optical power. Either way, check the connections and wiggle them to see if you can cause the problem to return.

First, check ignition system...cap, rotor, wires & coil. You may have some arcing going on there. If plugs are not recent, take a look at them as well...even if they are good, they can often tell you which cylinders are having a problem (wet with fuel, heavy deposits or just "different" from the rest) You may not hear the fuel pump come on all the time if the pressure in the line is not bleeding down. I would take a look at the relay first (power in & out). If fuel filter is more than 1yr old change that. (routine maintenance regardless of problems) Pressure test system if in doubt. Make sure idle air system is clean and do a quick test on crank sensor (a known problem area). likely something here will get you going.

Is the vehicle wanting to turn over? If not at all, look at the ignition switch, sometimes the contacts wear down and intermittant problems arise, such as not starting or car will die while driving.

Shutting off


i have the same problem...laptop randomly shuts down, but its even done it within a minute of turning it on so i don't think its a heat issue. Sometimes it'll run for over an hour with no problem and never shut down, but other times it randomly shuts down sometimes within a minute, sometimes maybe 10 mins, sometimes 30 mins or more ...its maddening! i'd love to find a solution if anyone's found one. Thanks.

Denon AVR-1803 shuts down


I am a Tech in Michigan and have worked on lots and Lots of Denon AV Receivers. These units have Protection circuits for Overcurrent, Dc Protect, 15v Regulator inbalance, Rail Voltage Inbalance, Low Ac Voltage, Low Standby Voltage and Thermal Protection just to name the ones I remember. My guess is you Probably have either Poor Intermittent solder connections or Amp is not Ventillating Properly. Make sure you leave room above Receiver to Vent and You are using no Less then 6 ohm speaker Impedance per ch. Refer to Speaker Impedance chart on back panel . kstahl65@att.net
