Hello. Please let me set the facts correctly. The specs on your receiver are 75 watts per channel into 8 ohms (20-20,000 Hz) at 0.08% THD, with 2 channels driven.

What this means is, you're pushing the receiver beyond it's limits. You will need a much larger, more powerful receiver to satisfy your need for power.

You can't compare your old receiver to this new product. Even the volume control indicator, actually works the opposite of what you may think. The control is actually acting as an attenuator(through a microprocessor(computer inside your receiver), so you will notice the numbers going down, as you're turning it up. When you turn it up in volume, the display shows you the lack of attenuation. It's just a different, more technical way of saying the same things.

Bottom line is, this receiver is not nearly as possible as you may have thought.

Most likely cause of a receiver shutting off when turned up is a bad speaker or speaker wire.
As far as having to turn it up almost all the way, that is the norm on most new receivers today. Most receivers no longer have a true preamp section, which means you have to run the main amp much harder in order to get a decent sound level.

SOURCE: Avr Shuts down at high volume

It does that because there is a safety feature in all the newer devices. If your system is turned up to high you would blow your audio outputs or speakers. That's why it shuts off.

SOURCE: AVR 2807 shuts off at high volumes

I had the same problem. Rebooting did the trick. Reboot the unit per the instructions provided by another user on the main page. Here they are:

To reboot, turn receiver off by the small on/off button, not the big standby button. While off press the night and pure direct button at the same time and keep holding them with your right hand while pressing the small on/off button with your left. You will see your receiver menu flash. When you see it flash let go of the night and pure direct button and the receiver will reset it self to the radio station 87.50. The receiver's microprocessor has now been set back to factory.

SOURCE: avr 3806 power shuts off when volume turned up

Hello david 420

It looks like your receiver's high-speed protection circuit is being activated. It is definitively not a fuse. When a fuse pops, you have to physically replace it. When the protection circuit is activated, the speaker output is cut off and the power supply indicator flashes. There are a few reasons why this happens:

1.- Your speaker wire connections are loose. Whether they are banana plugs or bare wire ends, make sure the speaker terminals on the back of your receiver are tight using clockwise turning.
2.- Verify that your speakers have an impedance between 6 and 16 ohms. Your receiver was designed to work with that impedance range. Any impedance lower than 6 ohms will activate the protection circuitry.
3.- The receiver is used at high volume levels over a long period, which results in an
extreme temperature rise. Improving the ventilation conditions around the unit might help alleviate the problem.

If after complying with these suggestions, problem is still present, you might need to have the unit checked by a professional for possible circuit failure.
Hope this helps. Let me know.

SOURCE: Turning volume up on my Denon AVR-485 AMP causes it to turn off

Speaker Impedance:
When speaker systems A and B are used separately, speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 ohms can be connected for use as front speakers
Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the same time if their impedance is less than 12 ohms.
The protector circuit may be activated of the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes with an impedance lower than specified are connected.

SOURCE: connected denon avr 1800 reciever to new hd tv. i

If you connect your tv's audio output to the reciever's audio input in the (TVor video section) using audio cables only---red & black or red & white) then select TV or Video on the front of the reciever depending on which connection on the back that you use it should work fine!!

How do I get HDMI cables to sync or talk to each other. We had this problem when we hooked up an Apple TV box to a Denon AVR-E400 and our Sony HD TV. We were told to disconnect all HDMI cables unplug


Personally I would use an RCA cable and hook up the AVR.
((RCA out of TV to AVR audio in))
((cable box HDMI cable output to TV HDMI Input1))
(As far as the AppleTv I would use a separate HDMI Input2)
If your AVR has a dvd or blue ray player Hook up a
HDMI cable out to another Input HDMI3 of the TV
using separate inputs on the tv will allow your surround system to be
used on all modes(CABLE,DVD/BLUERAY,APPLETV)

My AVR-E400 sub woffer not working through the Denton system


AVR-E400 has an RCA subwoofer output. This is a line level signal that must be connected to an ACTIVE subwoffer (has its own power amplifier) Also the source must contain subwoffer signal (5.1, 7.1, 9.1 surround sound etc) You will not get subwoffer signal from a stereo source such as audio CD, non-dolby type TV etc. Cheers, Don.

Denon avr-1708 receiver heats up and shuts off when volume turned up passed 0.0db or +0.5db. i am running 6-8" sonance 6oh speakers and have a fan blowing across the top of the receiver. it only...


Are you trying to kill it? A device has only so many emergency shut-offs it can withstand.

How are the spaces around the top, underside and back for ventilation?

0 dB isn't normally 'normal' volume.

I wonder if the fan is a self-defeating work-around because the noise might make you want to crank it up so higher so you can hear it.

Apple TV? Is it a dynamically-compressed audio signal? That would raise the average volume.

does it only shut off on high volume or a loud noise?

Denon AVR-1604 too large front speakers blew the avr


Try disconnecting the speakers at the receiver. turn it on radio or any other source and turn up the volume. If the receiver still shuts of, there is an internal capacitor issue and needs serviced. More than likely though, it's a speaker problem. If the speakers were underpowered and at max volume, chances are the damage was to a voice coil in one of the speakers. If the receiver continues to stay on without being connected it's ok. check your speaker wires as well. Frequently loose braids on wires touch each other and create very little resistance until turned up, more volume, more resistance. Then the receiver puts itself into protection mode so no damage will occur. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further.

My AVR 2803 shuts down when volume is at medium or above.


too big a speaker load,unit sensors shut unit down when speaker impedance gets too low . and draws too much current at hi volume.A bad woofer or tweeter voice coil burned by sudden excess volume can cause this,also partially shorted speaker wires.
