    I have a Denon AVR-1907 receiver that randomly shuts itself down. Of course, the warranty has recently expired. Any ideas what may cause this?

    I have removed all of the speaker wires, and when I power the receiver on it will turn on, the display works, then it will turn off and the light around the power button will flash. If there is a problem with the amplifier, how do I get that fixed?

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.

When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.

If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.

If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.

On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".

If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.

I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.

If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.

If I can be of any further help, let me know.

Red power light blinking on my denon avr 1907, tried reset procedure, no speakers hooked up now and it still goes from green light to blinking red light and shuts off...Any clues?

This is a protection mode. The receiver protection circuit detects an internal problem like missing power supply voltage or blown channel and shuts down the receiver. You need to bring the unit to a repair facility.

The receiver will not stay on. Has a flashing

Need more info here but it sounds like you have a short one one of your speaker wires that is sending the receiver into protect mode. The other option is that volume is too loud on zone one or two especially of you have multiple speakers hooked up to zone 2 and the ohm loads are becoming unstable.

I have had my Denon AVR-1907 for about 20 months. About two months ago, it started shutting down and the On/Off button blinks red. Almost all the time it would clear by itself for no reason and then work...

You will have to check with a volt/ohm meter the + and - 15volt regulator ics in the power supply if they are off by more then 3 volts it will shut down as soon as it is turned on,and you still will have a flashing red light. also you may want to check the output transistors for shorts if your regulator ics are good.

I am having troubling hooking up my PS3 to my denon AVR-1907 receiver. I am using the PS3 component inputs and hooking them up to the "VCR" input.

Connect your component cable to the PS3 OUTPUT (there is no input) and connect that to the component IN on your receiver.
