Question about Denon AVR-886 Receiver

1 Answer

My unit will not respond to the remote control. I performed a reset, which worked only temporarily, now I can't get any control from the remote. Everything on the unit works fine, but I would like to adjust some audio properties. Is there a way to do that without the remote? Is there a process to re-activate the remote?

I know this may sound stupid, but have you changed the batteries in the remote? they may simply be almost dead!

    open up the remote (if it's not under warranty) and check to see if the emitter LED has a cold solder joint or if the battery terminals have cold solder.

    An easy test for a remote is to point it at a webcam or camcorder and press a button. The led should flash almost white in the video stream.

HOW TO INSTALL BATTERIES Remove the lid in the rear part of the remote control unit.

Control seems to be working but unit not responding.


Check your remote control by using a camera or cellphone camera as your eyes to confirm if the remote control is ok. Point the remote control transmitter to your camera and check if a light emits in your remote control transmitter. If no light then the remote control is defective, but if the light is present then the remote is ok and the unit receiver board itself is defective.

Check also if there is a reset or rst button on the remote control, press the button and test the remote.

- Check if the battery is ok.
- Some remote control have reset button, you can find it at the front or back at the compartment of the battery push the rst button with pin or ballpen to reset it and try.
- Some remote control have selector switch in both remote control and at the board inside the unit. Try to transfer the switch button from A to B and also at the board inside the unit and reset the remote control and try.Or need to reconfigure the remote control to select the frequency.
- Try your remote control to other unit with same brand as yours to confirm if your remote control is really need a replacement. If it works then your receiver board in the unit is need a replacement. Or if wont work then you have to buy a new remote control. But if you have no budget then try to switch on the unit using emergency button to operate the unit.

It is not responding


This is one of the best solution to do, look for unit who have same model as your unit( to your friends or neighbors) and test your remote control. If it wont work in another unit with same model then the remote control is defective, but if it works then its the receiver.
But try this solution first, if there is a reset button in your remote try to reset it then try the remote to your unit.

Note: sample only(reset button can be found either infront or at back of the remote control inside the battery compartment.)
