Question about Denon AVR-E400
I have the avr-e400 just got it today my dad played it and it shuts off at a certain volume and why do I have to turn it up to like almost all the way before it even begins to have solid loudness it has 185 watts per channel what the use if I cant play it loud I used to have a Yamaha eciever that did the same thing took it to shop they said circuit in power supply board was bad can that cause this issue
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!
