Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Is sound coming out of the denon in the other zones?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it works with regular speakers just not my sonos speakers though the connect

Thanks for confirming,

do you have any other sources (cd, tv/cable, etc) that are working through the sonos as passed through the same z3 denon connection?

No

Okay so nothing is working though z3,

Are you sure you are setting the z3 source mode correctly?

Can you tell me exactly how the sonos is connected to the denon, or better yet send photos so I can check the connections?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question

You're plugged into the wrong spot on the denon,

move them over a set to the right, you have them on cdr/tape, you want them on z3

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question

Also are you having the turntable connected to the Phono ports on the back of the denon?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question

Okay I didn't see anything connected there,

but move the sonos over to the z3 ports,

make sure you set the z3 source mode to phono again, and make sure the sonos is set to the analog in

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question

z3 needs to be on phono also,

just like the main zone,

so press the z3 sel button, then rotate the source knob to get it to phono (or use the zone remote)

We got it to work! But the display light keeps turning off in the denon. Is this a setting?

It dims after awhile after you change a setting, that is a normal function

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
do you know if we can select to turn off the regular speakers and just use the sonos or do we need to unplug them?

Yes you can turn off the main zone,

either by powering off the main zone from the remote,

or just setting the main zone to a different input where there is nothing connected.

The remote is very difficult to understand. How do I set the main zone to a diffent input?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Never mind. I just turned down the volume on the amp. That worked. Thanks for your help.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Can you email me a copy of our chat?

The main zone is done with the big remote, by just pressing any of the source buttons at the top (cd, tape, etc).

Or, just going up to the receiver and turning the source knob. It will always change the main zone by default, unless you specifically press the z2 or z3 button first.
