The remote (RC-903) for my Denon 2802 is not working correctly. Pressing the Off button turns the unit off, and volume can be controlled from the remote. But pressing the On button does not turn the unit on, although the red light on the remote blinks when the On button is pressed. Likewise, pressing the input source (e.g., DVD, VDP,etc.) buttons on the remote does not change the input source on the receiver.

Batteries are new, and I've tried using the remote within 1 ft of the receiver.

Does anyone know what might be causing this problem? Thanks in advance.

If the remote has a "Main" zone setting, make sure it's set properly, otherwise, check the AVR Owner's manual for the procedure to reset the microprocessor.

There is no Main zone setting on my remote. I reset the microprocessor following the instructions in my owner's manual...unfortunately, that did not correct the problem with the remote. I appreciate the suggestions, though. Any other ideas? Thanks.

Have you added any new device to your setup as it's possible there is IR interference causing the issue? Also, if there is a lot of sunlight in the room, that can cause a problem as well.

No, we have not added any new devices. There is a lot of light in our room, but the receiver has been in the same spot for 10 years, and this problem just started occurring. And, if I'm understanding your point, the problem occurs both in the daytime and at night. Thanks.

Check the manual to see if there is a procedure to reset the remote. You might want to also try simply unplugging the AVR for a few minutes. Otherwise, another option would be to get a Harmony remote and download the 2802 remote codes from the Logitech database to it.
