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).

Turn up the volume on the left or right speakers or turn down the center channel volume to meet your preferences. There should be a setting for that in most receivers.

It seems that the main sound processor comes into an error and so seems a fault on the board. Since checking for a component level solution is very tricky as the access is not friendly, what could be done initially is to remove and reset the boards, check for faulty connectors that seems to vibrate and bring in these faults. Check the solde joints of the connector pins on the board. Check and solder the processor IC and the allied circuits. If the fault seems to disappear when the set heats up then you must check using a magnifier.Check the solder on the audio driver outputs of the center, main , front and rear are clean.
If not refer and proceed with consensus as a false move can cripple the set.

There is no capability to switch to front "B" speakers, the second "front" speaker output allows for bi-wiring a single pair, or running two speakers with identical outputs.

No sound out of right main when watching DVR/TV or VHS


When watching TV or VHS the sound should be stereo and therefor come out of the the 2 front speakers. I suspect you now have sound out of the left front and the center speaker which indicates you connected the center speaker to the right front speakerterminal and the right front to the center terminal.

Just check if all speakers are connected to the correspondent speakerterminal.

If this is correct and the problem persists, try to connect another speaker to the right front terminal to see of the terminal or speaker is not working properly. If another speaker does work on the same connection, your right speaker might be damaged which might not be heard when listening to 5.1 because of the surround sound.
