Question about Denon AVR-2500 Receiver

1 Answer

Denon avr-2500 left main speakers very quiet.

Just bought this gorgeous receiver at a yard sale - they said it worked perfectly - it does everything great EXCEPT the left main speakers, front and rear are almost silent. The volume control works but it's 1/100th the volume it should be. All other speaker outputs work fine. I've got no documentation, but I do have tools, a dvm, and a soldering iron, so if somebody knows why this channel seems to be only preamped, or how to further t-shoot it, I might be able to fix it. Thanks in advance for your help!

The Denon 2500 was one of the best ProLogic receivers built, it was a work horse and very little ever went wrong with them.
To make sure you're only supposed to hear right & left speakers, press the Stereo button on the remote. Also recheck your speaker connections - this is the single most overlooked connection problem folks have.
Check the balance control to make sure it's in the center position

Make sure the Tape Monitor is not engaged.

Then, check to make sure that the Pre-Out, Main-In jumpers are connected properly on the rear panel.
If that is not the problem, try pressing the Tone Direct button on the remote (aka Tone Defeat on the front panel).

I have just bought some Tannoy MX1 Speakers to hook up to my AVR-2500 receiver & am wondering what quality/AWG/Impedance rating etc Speaker Wire I should purchase to connect them?


Any speaker wire from an electronic shop will do the job. The bigger the wire core (dia) the better. Talk with the techie for more advice.

TMI.

This is strictly a remote control failure.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.
Or look on eBay, usually much cheaper if available.

Another thing would be to make sure the receiver's remote eye isn't picking up infrared from anything else in the environment.

The left side main output won't put out any sound on my Denon AVR-900.


connect your right speaker cable to the left output, if the sound comes out then the problem is on the left speaker ( the cable or the speaker itself ), but if still no sound, then the problem is on the power output of the unit, need to repair them

Denon AVR-810 going into PROTECTION mode


It sounds like there is a problem with the differential circuit. The bias I am not sure about, as every unit is different. You should get the service manual to be sure or call Denon and see if they can give you an idea. Good Luck
