Re: unit switches itself off
What you are describing is the protect mode. These Denon receivers go into the protect mode for several different reasons.
Bad speaker connected - disconnect all the speakers and see if it stays on then when turned on. Disconnect speakers with power off. If it stays on then you need to find what speaker is bad and get it repaired or replaced. You can figure it out by connecting one speaker at a time with the power off and then turn it on. If it stays on, the speaker just connected is good, connect another speaker and try again. When you get to a speaker that causes it to go into protect you have found your bad speaker. Always turn unit off in between when connecting speakers. If the receiver turns off with all speakers disconnected you have another problem which will need to be diagnosed by a service center unless you have the proper tools and some electronic troubleshooting knowledge.
There are a couple of other reasons why these Denon's go into protect. A output channel is bad, a voltage regulator is bad, a supply resistor is open. Those are the 3 most common reasons for these.
I work at an authorized Denon repair center and fix a few of these every week. Unless it is a bad speaker it will require a lot of work. They are good receivers and normally worth the cost it would require for repair. Replacing the unit with another one of equal quality will almost always cost at least double the repair cost. There is no way to know just what the repair cost would be without troubleshooting it and then knowing exactly what parts need to be replaced. My shop would charge anywhere from $95 to $250 for this symptom, it just depends on which of the 3 most common problems is causing it.
If you have at least a multimeter and know how to use it, I can helpp you with figuring that out. If it has a blown channel the cost is the highest. The other 2 common problems only require 1 part each, a resistor which is less than a dollar, and the voltage regulator which costs only a couple of dollars. The blown channel requires many parts to be replaced and takes much longer.

Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.
Hi, it seems to be ,you have a possible wrong connection..I may I recommend you to check the connections in accordance with my model connection procedures given below and correct if something is misconnected..
I believe Your Television ,vcr and dvd player all connected to each other thru Technics Receiver itself (not directly connected to each other ) and whenever you want to listen/watch any of it ,you make a selection thru Receiver.. ** in order to do this both DVD and VCR 's "2xRCA audio" and "1x RCA Video" cables for "IN" and "OUT" should go to Receiver separately ..("IN" goes to "OUT" of other ..pls remember,Always reverse connected ) ** Additionally your RECEIVER's prefably only "1xRCA Video Output " should go to TV to watch the video of both DVD and VCR (audio will come thru Receiver.)
Ok, now Since you successfully connected your Receiver to play video on TV (one way only ) ,here is the second reverse action to listen your TV on Receiver ** you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " of your TV .( every TV has different type of Audio out jacks ) ** to "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input" of your Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the necessary cables on your hand ) ** than just switch to
respective mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver .. There you go..Tv sound are on the Receiver .
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Hi,here is my simple solution... To listen your TV on your samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit ** to "AUX input "
or "TV" OR "Any input" of your dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input" ** than just switch to
respective mode on dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI .. . There you go..Your TV sound is on the dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the TV (tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your dvd player.
Hope this helps!..if more he?p requires pls let me know.. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Your unit being stuck in standby mode is an indication that its having a power problem. Remove it's plug from the wall, wait for about 30mis, fix it back into the wall, then turn it on again. If its still stuck in standby mode, then the power supply board in the unit is the cause of the problem.
The power supply board might be defective and maybe that's why the unit won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the unit because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the unit might not come on.
To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.
Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.
Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure. Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps metal case. Check that first. It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2. If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.
usually that is an issue of cabling and/or the monitor. The Marantz units are pretty darn stable. Check your setup to see if it is upconverting.
If you can, try a new HDMI cable to the TV. You could also try the second HDMI out, to see if there might be a problem with that particular output port. You can also try a different HDMI port on the TV.
Another thing to try is to directly connect your DVD player to the TV. If your cabling is all in walls, etc, you can get an HDMI coupler at a big box store for $15.00 or so. That will tell you if it is any of the cables, the DVD player, or the TV.
My configuration: ZONE 1 (living room) DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV
ZONE 2 (living room) DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV
Problem: ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)
Symptom: I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.
Solution: 1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button. 2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds. 3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO. 4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.
I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.
