Denon AVR-3802 Front Display problem

I've had this receiver for about 7 years. Everything functions fine, but the front display shows gibberish, completely unreadable characters. The characters do change when I select different sources or processing, but none of it makes sense. It's almost like it's trying to display a different language on the front display only.

The onscreen display works fine, but I have to switch TV inputs to a non-digital source to view it. I've searched but can't seem to find any information.

    Thanks for the quick repsonse Dan. I'll try as soon as I can get the unit out and see if this helps. I do think the problem started after a strong thunder storm moved through.

This can be either the display itself or the display driver IC havng problems. Something as simple as poor solder connections may cause this as well. Without seeing hte unit, it is difficult to say what the real problem is. If you can solder, try resoldering all of the voltage regulator ICs in the unit. These look like transistors and will be marked 7805 or 7812. If the voltages drift too low because of bad connections, the ICs can get "confused" and not work properly.

Keep us posted.

    It is also possible that the chip that controls the display got smoked a bit because of the storm too.



    Keep me posted.

Pairing code for Denon AVR-3802 and Dish remote to enable remote to work the volume from the Denon surround system receiver.


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts. .

Denon 3802 connected to blu ray player but playi g dvds, how do i get dd 5.1?


You cannot get 5.1 sound from DVDs that are not encoded with 5.1 sound. They may be stereo, which will only send sound to the main front L/R speakers.

AM,NEED REMOTE CONTROLL DENON AVR-3802 HOW I,BUY?


I had the same problem. Unfortunately Denon no longer mfgs. the remote for this receiver,
their solution is to offer a remote for a "similar" model. Problem is it doesn't work on all the
functions for the AVR-3802. My solution was to purchase an aftermarket universal remote
(Logitec Harmony 550 in my case}. The cost was a little less (approx. $90) vs. the price
quoted by Denon (somewhere around $120), and it works on all the functions.

I don't know if a budget priced remote (All-in-one, etc.) would be able to do th same.
There are several different programmable remotes on the market that should do the trick,
Logitec just happens to be one of them.

Good Luck

Display on Denon AVR-2307 won't work


It may seem obvious, but have you checked the display dimmer settings? Under the front cover is a button marked dimmer. Pressing it cycles through progressive display dimness settings until it goes off. One more press goes back to full brightness.

Check that your speaker cables are not touching each other at the amp end and also at the speakers as this will cause the amp to shut down.

Make sure your receiver is set to either "auto-select" or "digital" rather than "analog" (button on front display).

Set up


You don't need to fake it with a VCR - on the back left side near the bottom there is a Monitor section with an RCA connection and an S-Video connection. Connect one of these to an input connection on your tv and switch your tv to show that input. Select the AMP setting of your remote and press Setup.
