Center channel problem

Sound circuit card has likely failed. Without the proper electrical tools (oscilloscope) it is hard to fix. Take it in and see what they say it will cost to repair. Take to at least two different shops.

What is the best way to set up my 5 inceling speaker system room size is 18x15 TV is centered on 15 ft wall 10ft ceiling ?

place your subwoofer approx 1m or 3 feet away from your media player, then one speaker below your TV, the other two in either corner in the front and the other two in either corner at the back of the room. try not to mount them too high, approx 3 feet off the ground or the same hight as your head when seated. this will give you the best sound quality. if the speaker is the front or back seem a little far you should be able to set the volume on each of them. if the back is further than the front then set the back speakers louder than the front ones or vis versa.

Dennon gets hot shuts off

how are your four outside speakers hooked up? If you have four speakers hooked up to only two output channels on the receiver, the receiver is sensing a short and shutting down to avoid damage to the amp.

Denon goes in to safe mode when i turn the volume

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Component video problem. Hi I got the Denon

Just fixed this myself - made my head hurt to figure out. 1. Switch to a setting (say DVD). 2. Watch the AVR screen as it switches. You'll see the audio and video settings. For example, Audio = DVD, Video = DVD (Mine showed Audio = DVD, Video = DBS even though is was set correctly using the SETUP for audio and video)3. Under the round control knob on the left, push the (tiny) Video Select button. 4. Turn control know to choose the correct video source
Your system should work right. Mine did.
