SOURCE: no sound coming from subwoofer

Your receiver does not have a power amp to drive the speaker in the subwoofer while your other amp did. With this receiver you need to use a powered (active) subwoofer which has it's own power amp in it. You can either change out your subwoofer to a powered (active) subwoofer, or keep using your passive (unpowered) one and add a power amp between it and the receiver. The easiest way to tell a powered subwoofer is to see if has a place to plug it into the wall. If it does, it will most likely work in this situation.

SOURCE: flashing word "Protector"

Usually a protect fault will indicate a bad transistor in the amplification section. I suspect that the control circuit is sensing a fluctuation in the power supply and going in to protect mode. (assuming that the protect circuit itself is working properly) If a voltage is too high the unit will go in to protect mode to prevent damage to the speakers and the rest of the unit. I would take the unit in to a local repair shop and get a estimate of repair charges. Expect a 60 to 80 dollar repair charge depending on how many parts need to be replaced and what the repair labor rate is in your area.

SOURCE: My Sony STR-DE685 Receiver out of the blue now has

In receivers, there are different power supplies or power supply outputs for the receiver and amplifier sections so you can have separate failures with one area not affecting the other. From your description, I think the (probably lower voltage) section for the receiver has either lost a cheap filter capacitor or a regulator IC. Neither of these are expensive parts but I can't know what labor costs in your area might be. An honest tech shouldn't ask more than ~$100 US for that kind of repair.

Mum pressed some buttons on amp now the amp wont respond to the original remote or the universal remote. buttons wont work, batteries good and lights up. is there a button that blocks ir signal?


Looking at the user guide it appears that the amp has a standby mode.

See not below on turning standby on. Question can you see the standby light flashing.

I would also suggest using function on the amp to remove any possible issues with the remote.

One would expect the system to return to normal operation by pressing the power button again. If not what do you see on the display.

Note:
Press 1 to turn on the receiver.You can also turn on the receiver using 1 on the remote control. When you turn off the receiver, press 1 again. "STANDBY" flashes on the display panel. Do not disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead) while "STANDBY" is flashing. This may cause a malfunction.

Denon 1312 makes clicking sound will not turn on


If the front display does not light up at all when the press the power button, it is usually either the main power fuse or the power transformer. If the fuse is blowing, that usually means a short in the amp section.

do you mean the blue light on the power button? it sounds like your radio's switched power input (usually red) is hooked up to a 12 volt constant source.
