Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question


My denon amplifier has been over heat and now it doesnt work anyway. I found some burned parts inside and need to change that parts but i can't read the parts specification. I want to know the specification of parts that has been deffective. Could you please send me a copy? This is my e-mail add: [email protected].


Thank you... Hopefully you will help me to my problem.

SOURCE: Denon PMA-520 amplifier clicking noise

Sounds to me like a bad capacitor, but not sure. I would look inside for any slightly bulging capacitors or capacitors whose plastic wrappings have melted or shrunk or cracked (most caps are cylindrical). Please unplug first and be careful inside there and do not touch anything. I actually came across your post while looking for info on what I think is the same amp my brothers had but blew, and I was going to ask if they still had it so I could repair it. I've been very successful at repairing my electronic equipment such as Altec Lansing Model 95 speaker crossovers, power supply in Emu Emax II, and almost everything else in my studio.

Well, it seems you have your finger on the source of the problem. If accessible, try some tuner cleaner inside the potentiometer.

SOURCE: Denon PMA 700 AE maximum phono input signal

Why? Are you contemplating connection of something OTHER THAN A PHONO CARTRIDGE to it?

Be advised, only a phono cartridge should be connected to a Phono input. There's more going on behind it than just voltage step-up.

My thermal light on my 1000/1 amp comes on too often

This means your amp is in "protect mode" this light indicates that your amp is having a short circuit or loose of power.
Check your cables, if they are secured & no exposed wire And most important of all, check your voltage reading, it must be above 12v.
Loosing voltage in car audio is the number1 factor of heat/thermal problem & fire.
When an amp looses voltage, heat builds up inside it. Too much heat will make the amp be on "protect mode", excessive voltage drop will cause the amp's circuit board & other parts to be burned.
So, always watch your Voltage, either with a plug-in volt-meter or with a fuse holder & voltmeter.
Hope this helps.

Color is off and can't adjust the blue convergence on my 55 inch philips rear projection

If the blue component of the picture is bow-tie shaped, you probably have a fried convergence amplifier (CRT type sets only). They are inside two modules in the typical CRT type RPTV. Each one has three amplifiers inside, so you have two for each color. If the blue CRT shares an amplifier from each module, you will need to replace both. I recommend replacing both anyway because they are notorious for having a high failure rate and you won't have to guess which one has the blue amplifiers. Check the resistors connected to the middle pins of the amplifiers - sometimes they get burned out when the amplifier fails.

The part number on the convergence module is STK392-nnn, where nnn is a three digit number indicating the variant specifically used in your set. Some of the variants are rated for a higher current than others, and some have different pin arrangements. Make sure you get a name-brand such as Sanyo or Samsung; there are some unbranded Chinese copies out there with poor reliability. The typical price is $12-$25.

The modules are black plastic slabs about 3" wide by 1 3/4" high, with the bottom corners trimmed off at a 45 degree angle. A row of pins comes out of the bottom edge and go into the circuit board. They are mounted on some sort of metal plate or radiator to dissipate heat (heat sink). When you replace them, apply a very thin even coating of thermal transfer grease to the metal plate on the backside of the module, and clean off the old grease on the heat sink. You want only enough grease to ensure a "wet contact" between the parts; more than that will actually reduce heat transfer. While replacement is straightforward, it does require skill at reworking soldered connections on circuit boards.

The hardest part will be restoring convergence since you tried to adjust it. Be patient, and try to get the convergence points square to each other so the picture isn't distorted. Adjust each one a little bit at a time. There is some interaction between the adjustments, so what you do on one part of the picture affects other areas.

My Denon PMA-900V integrated amp has distortion in the left channel. When it is cold it is very minor, as it heats up and is played at louder volume the distortion is much worse.

The good news is that it's in one channel, which means you have the right channel parts to compare it with. Now the bad news whatever causing it and it's likely to be a semi-conductor (transistor or IC) has to be replaced. However finding it is easier than you might think. For a start it's going to be hot to touch. And you can get get it to stop being hot, while the amps on, so correcting the fault, for a while. You do this by spraying it with Servisol Super Freezer spray. You have to have the amp running for this. Find the left channel amp and wait while it goes bad. Then spray (one at a time) any part you suspect. If the sound returns to normal, you have found the faulty part! To prove it spray the same in the right channel. That shouldn't change.
You can get the freezer spray from your local electric parts shop (such as Maplin UK).

Suddenly after 8 years there is no sound coming out of my Denon AVR 2802 Amp. The inputs are right it is on Auto to pick up digital inputs and none of the inputs are working, really annoying. I have heard...

Actually, Denon used a thermal fuse in the primary of the power transformer. Have a tech check the primary winding and see if it's open. if so , have it bypassed

Can not get a spark on my 1987 volvo 740 gle non turbo changed coil and still no spark please help thanks

check your voltage amplifier for the spark, it sits on the inside of the fender , look in your manual. If it is not grounded to the metal well it will not work right. Remove it and clean the back side, fine steel wool
does well. Or it may not be working

It amplifies the low level signal from the computer to a level that the coil can use to generate a spark

I have the benefit of having a spare one for testing.

It would not be the first one that had that problem

The other thing to check is the little coil in the distributor . It needs replacing every 100000 or so there is a spec for the resistance through it and the plate it mounts on can be loose.


Find a small shop that knows volvo's and mention these 2 problems

Hello I bought a Denon PMA-500 Amplifier. When I turn it on the light indicates on for some seconds and after that is shuting down (goes back on standby). Do you have any idea why? Thanks for your...

it could be that there is a kind short circuit , check that the speaker wires are not touching each other the metal part should be max 1cm long , and check that the plus is connected to the red clamb and the min to the black clamb , check also that it can loose it heat

if it still doenst work it must be sent / brought to a dealer

My insignia amp wont work

Try removing the capacitor and discharging it with a .5 watt (radio shack) light bulb, and then reconnecting it in the same fashion.(before hooking it back up to the amp place it in line with the capacitor until the cap reads 12v with a multimeter or capacitor display) The capacitor will conduct but not store a charge for the amp if not properly charged before making the amp/capacitor conection. and therefore shut down or not start at all.
