Hi Gents,


I finally connected with the man who was selling the AVR-1612. He's been somewhat unreachable as his Daughter's graduation was this week and he just sold his house and needs to buy a small apartment or Condo quickly as there is a short possession duration. So we made arrangements for me to pick it up without testing it this afternoon as he was out looking at Real Estate.


Itried to turn it on, and simply, it doesn’t work. When you power it on itlights up for a second or so, but then before you hear any speaker relay lockin it powers off. Then it tries again. And again, etc. The whole time the greenlight around on /standby button is blinking. This goes on continuously until youunplug the unit or timely press the on /standby button. It does this withnothing connected to it , 2 speakers connected, 3, speakers or 5. One time itdid latch at random and I was able to play some music through it and an FMstation worked. But as soon as I connected an HDMI cable so I could startlooking at Menus on a monitor, it shut down again and now is back in the samemode.


I’vetried every combination (including resetting the microprocessor) but nothingmakes it work. It’s now well after midnight and I’m tired.


Whatshould I do next?


Thanks for the assist.

Regards,


Jim

I sold my friend my older 2312 and he wants it for just a garage unit. What is the best way to set this unit for easy use for a novice user? He has no idea how to use it and just wants it for garage tunes and outside deck music. He has indoor and outdoor speakers, so how can I set it to run the out side speakers on a different set up? Can I amp assign it to the surrounds or can I set them to zone 2? I am actually a little confused myself. He said he want the outside speakers to not always be on. I have never used zone 2 or 3 or set two different sets of speakers so I am a bit lost myself. I have only ever set my Denons for home theater use only. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks Reef

First thing he should do is to reset the microprocessor (p. 144 Owner's manual). This will also reset AMP ASSIGN to the default of 5.1 + Zone 2 so he can connect his 2 outdoor speakers to the Surround Back speaker posts and pass any networking audio or external sources connected with an analog cable (in addition to HDMI if there is a garage TV).

Thanks for the advise. I will reset it on my next visit.

That's where I'm headed. I did check out the repair costs and they exceed the cost for the AVR-1612.


I'll return it to him for Recycling.

Regards,


Jim
