Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Had my surround system shipped cross country. I have it plugged in now and the power light is on indicating it's receiving power, normal for standby mode. However, I push the power button and nothing.....system doesn't turn on....when I unplug the receiver the light goes off, plug it back in and the light goes on, never turns on though....any idea? Nothing was heard jiggling around when I picked up/was carrying it...

Hi,

Largely depending on the brand & model (as well as features), some receivers will not allow power on if it senses a fault which may include but not be limited to (built-in protection):

  • internal fault such as a loose connection or a short;
  • external fault such as speaker not connected or wires shorted;
  • systems glitch, simply unplug again for an extended period of time before trying again;
  • there are even instances when the AC plug is simply plugged the wrong way.
If it were an internal fault, would of course require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back brand and model, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

All of a sudden stopped working and won't turn back on. been 12hrs. when power is pressed, it turns on for 2 seconds and then standby lights blink again and it turns off


This could be caused by a direct short circuit on the speaker outputs. Try disconnecting all the speaker connections at the back of the receiver and then power back on. You can also try a factory reset by holding the surround mode + clear button for 3 seconds.

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?


if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

Try unplugging everything, including your speaker wires. It's possible that you have a damaged or crossed cable or wire causing a short that activated the receiver's internal circuit. It might have also reheated.

Let the unit sit for an hour. Plug it in (just the power), set the volume to minimum, and turn it on. If it stays on, the issue MIGHT be with a wire or connection, so you should examine all of the tires for damage or crossed connections.

Turn the receiver off, unplug it, reconnect the wires and cables. Plug it back in, make sure the volume is set to the minimum level and turn the receiver on.

The subwoofer is not working on our Bose 5.1 surround speakers.


First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.

Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.

So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.

Reciever won't power up


HI, this amp may need to be reset. also, i would check the voltage selector on the back side to make sure the switch is set to 110-120v. once this is done, you will need to reset the microcomputer. here is the procedure.


The microcomputer may malfunction (unit cannot be operated,
or shows an erroneous display) if the power cord is unplugged
while the power is ON, or due to some other external factor. If
this happens, execute the following procedure to reset the
microcomputer and return the unit to its normal operating
condition.

Procedure- Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, then
plug it back in while holding down the POWER key.

ok, after this reset, if your receiver isn't operational, it may have serious damage to its power board.

Brand new avr588 receiver is turned on....is on for five seconds and then cuts off to standby


Hi donnie025,

I can't believe you haven't received an answer before now.

The red flashing light normally indicates that the protection circuit has been tripped. It can be caused by something as simple as a short in a speaker wire. Even if there is one strand of loose wire that makes contact with the back of the receiver, another wire, etc. it can cause a short. To protect itself the receiver will simply shut down.

1st. I would suggest disconnecting all the speaker wires from the back of the receiver. Then turn on the receiver (obviously you won't hear any sound) and see if the receiver does the same thing. If it does you should try disconnecting all of the source components (DVD player, Cable box etc.) and try again. If it still does it the receiver is bad and needs to be serviced or exchanged if you still can.

2nd. If the receiver stays on after you disconnect, then turn off the receiver and connect one speaker at a time, then power on the receiver at test it after connecting each speaker. This way if it suddenly shuts down after connecting a speaker you know which speaker or wire to check.

Let me know how it works out for you, I hope this helps if you haven't figured it out already.

My denon avr-1906 amp will not turn on correctly. When the standby button is pressed the indication surrounding the button flashes green but when you hear the relay click in for presumably the power amp,...


The amp is shutting down to prevent further damage. This is what is sometimes referred to as protect mode. There is a problem with the final stage of the amplifier. The most common parts that fail are the output transistors. Figure on $15-$40 in parts plus the local labor rate for the total repair cost.
