Denon DRA 275 - will not turn on

I have an older Denon receiver (DRA 275), up to this point absolutely no problems. One day, it doesn't seem to turn on. There is still power going to the unit as both the switched and unswitched AC plugs in the back still work. So I figure it's a fuse or somethign for the display or main on/off switch. Is there an internal fuse? Any other suggestions?

    Same problem. 5 amp/125 watt fuse blows as soon as power is turned on. Help please.

    Product blows fuse 4A/125V when powers on. If I disconnet the 4 wire connector to the main board, everything is OK. So I suspect that I have a short on the Main board. Any suggestions for a fix?

SOURCE: Standby light stays red and will not turn unit on.

Try to reset the macroprocessor. Unplug the unit from AC, hold both buttons SPEAKER A and SPEAKER B and plug the cord in outlet. After display flashes several times release the buttons. No result? - repair shop.

Right on!
Jumpers was my problem. Luckily I had a pr. of short RCA's because my NAD jumpers were too small to reach across.

Listen for a relay clicking inside. It you hear it but get no power, it is a problem with the relay. If there is no click, it is probably the power supply.

I have a Denon DRA 397 receiver and when I power it up the standby light goes on but nothing else powers up?

If you are not pressing the power button on the remote that may be the problem

I am a comercial electrician. My company installed 2 Denon recievers on a job and 1 has gone dead. There is power to the unit but no power to the recepticals on the back. Is there a reset or a fuse?

Are they "switched" recepticles? I believe they are but, the picture I'm looking at is too small. This is the manual for the unit;
This is the link:
Just glancing at the manual, of course it doesn't mention a fuse but, I'm quite syre if you pull off the cover, there is a fuse or two on the circuit board. Anyway, I wasn't trying to be smart about the "switched receticles and, you probably already knew but, if they are switched recepticles, they will only work when the unit is turned on.

My denon DRA-295 does not remember stations I set to memory when completely turned off. If on standby all goes well. A month after the problem mentioned above the tuner started to modulate reception and...

My better guess is a CMOS chip is either bad or there is a cold solder connection in the vicinity. If the power supply is bad, the receiver would not power up.

This worked for me, but I'm sure tired of constantly searching for ways to fix the problems I encounter with my Denon DRA-397. When it works, it's great, but I don't have a degree in electrical engineering. Why can't they produce a user friendly trouble shooting guide?
