Hello, and welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X’ll be assisting you today.
First, a brief overview of the process: This is a live chat format, so I’ll need to communicate back and forth with you. You’ve already paid a deposit or membership to post your question here. I am an independent tech, and am volunteering my time unpaid until our chat is concluded. At that time I’ll request you click the EXCELLENT smiley face to close out our chat. It is my intention to solve your problem with a quick, honest, and helpful answer and my goal is for a rating of Excellent Service. You may receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel I’ve earned a “10” rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to better meet your expectations.
Should you feel the need to provide a negative rating of Bad or Poor Service, please wait and let me know what I can do to clarify or more thoroughly answer your question instead. Remember, you are rating me personally, not this site or your product and a negative rating will not initiate a refund. Please know that not all issues can be fixed online; in those cases of a hardware failure, I’ll troubleshoot and diagnose the problem, and provide a practical recommendation for how to proceed.
My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Let’s get started!
Hi there, sorry to hear you're having trouble with the receiver,
I've been a Denon authorized dealer and installer for over 10 years,
if you can tell me a bit more about the symptoms, as well as the model number (it will start with AVR, for example AVR 1913), I can give you a better idea of what is going on, and repair options.
hi dear.. i cant remember the model right now.. i have to check out but im pretty sure that the problem with my receiver is a burned fuse because i connect the receiver and i was listening to music and it shut down..
These units don't really have fuses
is the light on the front flashing red, and it won't turn back on?
Normally if it has shut down, it indicates it has overheated, or is in a protection mode because there is a short in an attached speaker or component.
Will it turn back on? Or does it look completely dead (no lights, no display, no clicks, etc)?
it doesn't turn on
Okay, that tends to indicate a faulty power supply, likely a bad capacitor, though a fuse is a possibility, they rarely blow.
I can help you find a local shop, if you'd like to have it checked out,
The closest is
ok. thanks.. i would like to know an estimate that how much will it cost to repair.. do you know?
It really depends on the nature of the problem, which is why I was trying to get some more information about it.
If it really is just a fuse, which is to be quite honest, very unlikely, it could be around $50-100 (most shops have a minimum labor charge).
If it is an internal defect or protection mode, it could be upwards of $300.
Chances are that if the receiver is more than 3 years old, and out of warranty, it would be cheaper to buy a new one than to get it fixed.
If you can get back to me later on with the model number, I can walk you through some troubleshooting steps and you may be able to fix this without having to take it in for repairs.
im gonna look for the model and i will get back to you.. thanks
i have restored in my garage so i have to take it out to look for the model#.. thanks again..
