Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders
I have fixed 3 shorts on my de845. 2 have been caused by cracked solder joints. they were speaker cutout problems...yours most likely is the center channel relay on the main board. take the thing apart. you need to get to the back of the main board and re-flo those solder joints. get your geeky pc buddy and do it together(buy him a sixer). its really not that hard...just a bunch of screws. disconnect everything from the main board including the front plate. be careful with the ribbon cable...mine is hurting at this point. not meant to be removed so many times. put it in straight. my leads bent, but was able to straighten them. there are 5 relays together, one for each channel. they are white cubes and prb a little smaller than the tip of your finger. its the 4 leads on each of these that you want to take a soldering iron to . i'm not sure which ones the center channel so do them all in that area. it may be hard for you to tell which leads they are so just go overboard and at least get everything in the vacinity. i did all component leads because who's to say another's not ready to go bad. you've gone this far. touch the heated up tip to all the leads at the very end of the barb. you can reflow the solder without actually touching it. the metal lead will get hot enough. hold it until the solder liquifies, then let it cool. do this on a flat surface. my other fix once was a re-seating at the speaker switch a,b,a+b on the front plate. there are 2 boards plugged together there. i bent the leads slightly so they seated in more tightly. if your left or right front goes out, sometimes thats an easy fix...try b if you're using a, or the opposite. don't forget the speaker cables. if you're using both zones then you prb already figured out you need to re-flo! test and cross your fingers. good luck.

IF YOUR NOT USING A DENON IPOD DOCKING STATION IT WILL NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY.
YOU CAN CONNCET OTHER TYPES OF IPOD DOCKING STATIONS BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE CONTROL THROUGH THE DENON AND ONLY CONNECT THE AUDIO FOR THAT DOCKING STATION TO THE DENON AS ANOTHER SOURCE INPUT

Tips for a great answer:

It is an analog STEREO-only receiver so it is NOT compatible with multichannel or even digital audio. The TV is irrelevant.
Re: the iPhone:
Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.
