Question about Denon AVR-681 Receiver

1 Answer

Receiver Problems I've had this receiver for approximately six years and have never had a problem with it. Recently when I tried to turn on the system it simply won't turn on. I know it's receiving electricity because the red standby light is turning on. Other than this light turning on, there is nothing else happening. Thank you

The main power supply may have failed, and or the output stage may have failed. If the output stage failed, there will most likey be damaged parts in the driver stages.

Most likely the fuse is okay because the standby light is coming on.

This is not something you can fix at home. You can take the set to a service center that is familiar with the make and model of your reciever, or call the manufacture to find their authorised service rep, and have them make an estimate for you.

HDMI Error/HDCP Error


Hi, Try replacing the HDMI cable. My Guess is that you have a bad cable connection or connector. If there is excessive heat on cable connectors this could be bad. Cooling fan or other heat source
Good luck.

I fixed it myself. Didn't realize that I loosened speaker cables on the wall panel when I moved the receiver and two were touching...

Hi. I am picking up a buzzing sound. I have had this receiver for years with no problems. Any clue?


Most likely a ground loop. Troubleshooting is difficult.
Completely disconnect devices one at a time starting with the satellite or cable box. Listen for when the hum disappears. If you have recently installed a source (cable box etc) start with that. Have you recently installed any light dimmers? Cheap dimmers can also cause ground loops.
If it is in the cable or sat box you should try to get the incoming line grounded at the demark.
Or try this:

I have a Denon receiver, had it for a couple years now and has worked perfectly. Last week I was watching a movie and all of a sudden my receiver shut off and it blinked a red ring of death. I let it rest...


Did you recently move any speakers around or any items near the speaker wire connections?
It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorting which is causing the receiver to go into "auto protect" mode. Check all of the speaker wire connections on the back of the receiver and at all of the speakers to make sure the wires are not touching or close enough to possibly touch.

Sounds like the power supply or associated module. Definitely fixable, but probably needs a technician.

Overload...


Pioneer posted this on it's Canadian Web Site:

Poor wiring connections, bad wires or a bad speaker may cause this. As you increase the volume, you will increase the amount of current you are drawing from the receiver. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following:
  1. Disconnect each speaker wire connection. Inspect for any frayed or damaged wiring and replace it.
  2. Check the impedance of the speakers; make sure they are properly rated for your stereo. In most cases, they need to be 8 ohms. Only a few Pioneer receivers will support lower impedance.
  3. If the problem still continues, try these steps:
    1. Turn the receiver off.
    2. Remove one speaker.
    3. Turn the receiver on.
    4. Increase the volume.
If the receiver overloads, repeat steps 1-4 (selecting a different speaker each time). If you disconnect a certain speaker and the receiver no longer overloads, have this speaker checked at a service center. It could have a bad speaker component, like a tweeter, sub-woofer, or even a bad crossover.

Try a complete RESET by completely switching OFF mains power and leaving for at least 40secs. before commencing a new setting-up procedure.
Let's know if this does work it back to normality!
