20 Most Recent Denon AVR-1507 Receiver Questions & Answers

Before you send the unit to the service center, check the wiring. Make sure that the speaker wires don't have loose strands that are touching each other or touching the rear panel of the AVR-1507. Check all of the speaker wire connections for loose strands. Since the receiver is minimally used, you could try vacuuming out any dust from the interior of the unit. Note: if the receiver is still under warranty, opening the case to clean it will void your warranty.

If the problem persists, a service center is the best option unless you are very skilled at fixing electronics. Manuals Lib does have a service manual for the AVR-1707, AVR-1507 and other models. However, there is a notation that individual illustrations may not match the receiver being worked on. A Google search can lead you to this manual.

I hope this helps.

Because the sound is only faint says to me that the power amp that controls the left channel is faulty. You need to look at the device(s) on the heatsink and probably replace them.

unplug it, let it set for about 15 min., plug it back in and see what happens. Hopefully it will recycle itself. If that fails, with your theater remote, you can pull up it's functions screen on your TV, and probably return it to factory default settings. That would be a last resort for me before seeking professional help. Good luck. . .

Are you using normal impedance speakers? If it worked correctly before, and even better if you can connect the old speakers back to verify the receiver works correctly, would give you a clue.
If the new speakers are a difficult load (below 4 ohms) it may overload the amplifier and it will shutdown to protect itself. You need to provide more info to access correctly.

Removing all speakers and using a headset will also validate the operation of the receiver.

Good luck.

you should be able to use a rca to mini-plug cable and hook up to the audio out or headphone jack on your pc

Your receiver has a customizable setting for volume limiting control, up to +18dB maximum.

Find your system setup button either on the front panel of the receiver or the remote control and press it, then press enter. On the display it will show number one, a two and a three. 1 is for speakers, 2 is for input and 3 is for option. You want to select number three.

Use the right arrow key to highlight number three with the cursor and press enter. Use your up or down arrow key to select the next item that appears on the display in a list. The first thing listed is the setting for the volume limit control. Use your right or left arrow key to select a limit up to 18dB which is the maximum, or select off, which is also the maximum. Then press enter.

Yup, don't guess, read. Lots of things to set.

If it's self powered and accepts a standard RCA Line Level LFE Pre Out input, you're good to go.

If not, tell us more about the sub.

I'VE seen this error many times, if you need an actual transistor changed, you will want to visit the local electronics repair shop. Many computer shops may also be able to repair your problems. I would recommend that bringing in physically to a shop would be your best choice. The Denon AVR-1507 7.1 is far too expensive to simply replace for a bad set of resistors, transistor, or capacitor, ensure that you realize this is something that some be seen in person to repair.

It depends on what wrong is with the receiver. If there is bad DSP (digital surround sound processing) board better to buy new receiver. If it is just bad channel it can be repaired below or about hundred dollars. It could be also just simple cold soldering joints. You need to bring it to a repair shop and get an estimate.

It sounds to me like the unit is probably over heating. Receviers produce alot of heat, make sure that it is in a well ventilated area and if needed add a fan.
Good luck

This is a common question on this site. Amps of all types have protection circuits to keep them from doing a self meltdown. Testing follows this logic. 1. Remove all speaker wires. 2. Keep the volume down - all the way. 3. Turn the unit on. 4. If it does not trip off, then there is a problem either in a speaker or the wiring. a. Reconnect one at a time until/unless it trips off b. That will tell you where to look further.
If it does trip off, then there is an internal circuit issue in the amp and probably requires professional help to fix.
