Question about Denon AVR-2106 Receiver
It is most likely that you have a shorted output channel or a supply resistor that sometimes opens. The smell you had was probably a resistor opening up. This could be a couple of resistors in a output channel or the supply resistor mentioned above. In either caase, it is something that would require an experienced technician to repair. If you have a multimeter and soldering iron, I could help you to determain the exact cause. But it would require very good soldering skills and if the problem is more than just the supply resistor opening it would require the replacement of 2 output transistors, 6 to 8 resisitors, 3 driver transistors, 1 capacitor, all for repairing a shorted output channel. I have repaired many of these Denon receivers and it takes an experienced technician about 2 hours to complete the repair. It is very common for these Denon's to have this problem.
If you are up to the task, let me know and I will direct you to the proper components and give you the part numbers you will need to complete the task.
But beware, it must be done perfectly the first time, and if you miss just one bad component and then turn the unit on again, it can burn up all the components you have just replaced.
Do not continue to try and turn the unit on any more since it is going into the protect mode, doing so can cause more components to fail from excess current being drawn thru the bad channel every time you turn the unit on again.
Let me know if you need more help.
