HELP! Denon Receiver AVR 1905 only plays stereo.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Bit of an amateur when it comes to the home theater department. I've had the same receiver and simple setup for the past few years: Denon AVR 1905 w/sony speakers and a sub. Recently I took my receiver out of storage, hooked up all the speakers, sub, record player xbox etc. only to find that I can only get sound out of the front L and R speakers when the receiver is set to stereo.

When I switch to 7ch or any other surround mode, silence. No output whatsoever.

I blew a fuse prior to putting it in storage which I just recently replaced with the proper ampage. I blew the fuse when I (stupidly) plugged my vacuum into one of the two power outlets in the back of the receiver. I don't recall if at the time the surround still worked. I know I continued to use the stereo as usual and I think I would have noticed not having surround.

I have reset the microprocessor and still nothing.

Is there a setting I may have accidentally enabled? Is there something I can do at home to diagnose the problem? I know having it serviced and repaired at this point would probably end up running significantly more than I'm able to spend.

I can provide any more information necessary. I'd really love to get this thing back operating, I miss my system. Any help is appreciated.

THANKS!

I suggest you do a factory reset and then play the receiver test tones used to set levels. That will tell you whether the basics of the AVR are working. If so, then try attaching playback equipment.
