Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, Sorry you're having problems.
You were talking to a computer before, so sorry about the strange questions you were asked.
Now that said, do you have an FM antenna connected to the back of the Denon?
Also if you switch to AM and crank the volume, is there any static, buzz, etc. - anything at all please?
Also, just to make sure here - you're trying to tune an FM station, not XM/Sirius or HD radio correct?
I'm unsure why you're unable to reply, but if trying to use the FM tuner, please observe that the basics are covered:
1) Coaxial cable plugged into the Coax FM antenna jack, or straight piece of wire connected to the 75 ohm plug on the back of the receiver.
2) Using the Source dial, FM is selected and the station pulled up is in Stereo (otherwise the receiver will MUTE the signal).
If those have been checked AND it is indeed the FM SOURCE your'e referring to (and not XM or HD radio) the we would want to next try a reset of the microprocessor.
To reset the processor (which does JUST that and can cure issues like this) shut the receiver Off. Then press and hold the "SPEAKER A" and "SPEAKER B" buttons on the front of the unit together, while pressing power once. "Please Wait" should then be displayed on the front of the receiver which indicates that the processor has been reset.
If you're STILL having the same problem once those things have been checked (steps completed) then this would point to a hardware fault that's occurred within the tuner, and this is something that can happen with no outside catalyst involved. In that case you're generally looking at between a $150-$200 repair for this issue, which may not be cost effective on a 30 year old receiver that can be replaced for almost the same cost. However if you would like to locate a shop you can use the link below to find one in your area:
Alternatively, if you'd rather seek a replacement in lieu of repairing this one, I would suggest the unit at the link below as being a comparable receiver:
Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.
