If the display never lights up at all, even for a few seconds, the main power transformer is the most likely problem. I work at a Denon authorized service center and repair lots of these Denon's, including this model.

The transformer should be checked to make sure, but it is more comon than anything else.You can also check the fuses inside the unit. Make sure the unit is not plugged in when you open it. It has several glass fuses, but the one close to where the A/C goes into the board is the one to check first. If the problem is not the transformer or fuse, it could be any number of things in the power supply. If the main fuse is blown it will do the same thing.

If you can determain if it is the power transformer I can give you the part number. I can also tell you how to check the transformer if you have a multimeter. Just let me know how you want to resolve this. It is reccomended that you take it to a service center for repair if you do not have the proper tools to repair it. If it is the transformer, the only tools you need are a number 2 phillips screwdriver and multimeter or ohm meter. The repair cost is around $200 to $250 for the transformer depending on the mark up of the part and the labor rates of the service center.

Some service centers give free estimate's or charge a small fee for an estimate. This might be a good alternative to find out if it is the transformer if you cannot check it yourself. Just don't tell them you are fixing it yourself and just want to know what to replace. I have seen some places sabotage equipment to teach people a lesson for trying to do it themselves. I have never done that, but I have seen it before.

If you have found this information helpful a rating of FixYa would be appreciated. It is the only reward I get for helping peple for free, and great way for you to say thanks.

Let me know if you need more help,

    Don't even try to put another in, it will just blow also.

    You really need to get it looked at by a service center. It may be the transformer has a shorted primary, or maybe even something else like a output channel blown or something in the power supply. But it does have a serious problem, no way to know for sure without troubleshooting.

    Sorry it wasn't something easy.

    Let me know if you need more help.

THAT would depend on the unspecified audio outputs of your PC. Access the controls for the Sound Card and make sure they're turned on and up, then cable whatever it has to something on the Denon that fits it. Neither device knows or cares that the other is anything more or less than a standard audio device or self-driven speaker set.

I tend to agree that the LED is loose on the foil connections. You can certainly test it by shining it at a camcorder and observing the viewfinder. Most, if not all, video units can "see" the light coming from the led if it is functioning. An easy way to test this is to use another remote that you know is working and do the 'corder test. ....accordianman
