“** Think the AVR is defective? Reset the microprocessor a few times.”
Just wanted to say Thank you for the above line in your ID byline.
I got a Denon AVR-3310ci used on Ebay. It was listed as is untested and was at $60 plus $20 shipping so on a lark, I thought I’d bid $65 just to see how long my bid would last. To my surprise, I ended up with it for $62 plus $20 shipping. Well, when I got it, it would turn on and stay on but no sound. I went into setup and tried channel level and got sound from the FL speaker and could adjust the volume for that channel, when I switched to the center channel I still got sound coming from the FL speaker and so on for all channels. I saw your reset comment and decided to try it waiting for 4 flashes before removing pressure on the 2 buttons but without success. I figured I had just purchased an expensive boat anchor. I noticed “….a few times” so I tried it again but again without success. I decided I had nothing to lose so I tried reset again this time holding the 2 buttons for 10 flashes and it worked! I have tested the 7 channels and GUI and tested a blu-ray with excellent results.
Again, Thank you for the suggestion. Next time I think I will be a little more cautious tossing a bid on Ebay though.
