Problem with shut down
As per suggestion I am reposting this here
Oops the name of the receiver didnt carry over- I have the
I recently purchased this receiver- I just moved into a new house and my bedroom has speakers built into it as does my bathroom. I got the receiver refurbished from amazon and set it up with the bathroom speakers being zone 2. It will play those speakers up to about volume 49 (which is not that loud) - anything higher than that and the receiver shuts itself off (protection mode). I figured maybe I had messed something up so I had a professional installer come out and look at it, he couldn't get it to work as zone 2 but ran the bathroom speakers into the same port as the regular front speakers and it seemed to be working (though not multizone). Then this morning it shut off and went into protection mode again. Looking around online there seems to be many people having the same problem, some recommend going to a Dennon repair place but there is none in Nevada. I should note that prior to this I used my roomates old receiver and it ran all the speakers fine (but was not multi zone) so I can't imagine its a speaker/wire problem.
I have about one week before my amazon return period is up- so my question is is there something I can do to fix this? If not does anyone have a rec for a lower end multizone receiver?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks
To answer the questions asked there
Where are the most reports of common failure? Is it general shutdown or zone2 use only?
I can play the main zone (the 5.1 in the bedroom) at ear shattering volume and it never shuts off. It only shuts off when I play the bathroom speakers in zone 2- those play up to about volume 49 (which is not that loud) and once I go louder the receiver shuts off in a minute or less
Start with the basics. Can you connect just two speakers to the main zone front and play loud in each room by itself?
Is it a failure only when using zone2 or only when both zones are being used at the same time? Try to isolate what
connection scenarios work and what changes/additions were made to cause the shutdown.
It will shut off with just zone 2 when wired that way. This morning when the speakers were all set to the regular 5.1 (with the bathroom speakers doubled in) it shut off after about 10 minutes of playing (at not a loud volume)
