Customer Question
Deion AVR-5308 attempted firmware...

Deion AVR-5308 attempted firmware update. Indicated 144 minutes so I went to bed. Evidently update failed. Now nothing works. I did On/Off-Standard-THX reset, but no help there.

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your AVR-5308?

About 10 years

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

On/Off-Standard-THX buttons reset

What update method did you attempt?

You will need to try downloading the latest firmware release from the Denon website and loading it manually onto the receiver:

Let me know if that works?
