I have hooked up both AM loop and tried several different 75 ohm FM antennas(including the supplied antenna) to my Denon AVR-2301CI. I can receive AM broadcasts just fine, but cannot even receive a hint of FM station, even the local stations,.... just white noise.

Again I have tried several different FM antennas without luck. Does anybody have any suggestions? Is there some local/distant setting for the tuner that I have missed?
Thanks for any help!

The FM Tuner should just work when the antenna is connected. First try powering OFF and unplugging the AVR for a few minutes. If still no joy, you could try resetting the microprocessor (p. 70 OM); however, that would return all settings to their factory defaults and require you to run AUTO SETUP again. Was the FM Tuner working in the past and now no longer works, or did you just get the unit as a used/demo unit?

Think your AVR is defective? Check the Owner's manual and do a factory reset 4-5 times if necessary.
