Hi everyone,


This is my first time here, and wonder if someone might be able to assist. I bought an AVR 4311 yesterday but the display is constantly giving me a message that it's waiting for upgrade. I decided to connect the receiver to the internet; all was ok. It was updating nicely, counting back from 6 mins, 5 mins, then all was cancelled and this process has now gone into a continuous loop. It gets to 4 mins then aborts. I did not interrupt the connection in any way at the time so wondering what is causing this.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

Welcome to AVS Forum.


There are two types of firmware information notices, an "update" (fixes) and an "upgrade" (new feature), the latter referring to the Airplay "upgrade" which can be done after you're able to successfully "update" the firmware. If you don't have a "wired" connection from the AVR to your router, ideally that is what's best for firmware updates/upgrades. Regardless, as noted in the Owner's manual p. 106, either press/hold the ON/STANDBY button for more than 5 seconds, or unplug the AVR for a few minutes at which point the AVR will attempt the update again.


Also note there is a dedicated Denon AVR-4311CI Owner's thread ---> http://www.avsforum.com/t/1274153/the-official-denon-avr-4311ci-avr-a100-thread-no-price-talk/0_50

Thanks very much for your reply; much appreciated. I did try your suggestion but it is caught in this endless loop, it would seem. I do have the connection via ethernet cable; it acknowledges the update, counts back from 6 mins, then stops at 4 mins and goes back into the loop, over and over...

I get the message: Please wait, update retry, then Ether IMG, Updating 6 mins... back to the loop each time. It won't go down beyond the 4 mins...

Very strange...

Hi,

Did you eventually get this resolved? If so, how? I have the exact same problem. I have turned off update and upgrade notifications ( quickly when it cycles) to no avail as the loop continues. Unplugging does not do anything either although I will try several minutes vs seconds next time. Should really have a "try again?" prompt or something. Has been looping for a few hours now, very frustrating. Anyone else find a solution? AVR unusable at this point.

Thanks,

Ron

Hi,

Like Huey's, the registration for AirPlay upgrad was done first, then install/upgrade process is started, then stuck in loop. Another thread here suggested the "turn off notification" which has been done with no effect.

Thanks,

Ron

¿Did you try a fabric reset?

he means factory reset, was probly using a smart phone and it auto corrected his spelling , incorrectly i might add. Look in you manual on how to do a factory reset.

Thats what I meant, the problem is not my phone, its my english because I am from Spain.



Try the factory reset, see if you can get it to go back before you where experiencing the problem.

Thanks guys, I have tried the processor reset to no avail. I have now read that ther might be way to reset the internal network card, I will try that next . Have to wait agin until safe to do so, right after reboot. Any other thoughtsZ.


Thanks

For those interested, holding the up and down arrow and power at the same time resest the network card (I think) and stopped the AVR from the infinite loop so it least now I can use the amp. Not sure where I go from here but traveling for a few days so it will have to wait.

Thanks,

Ron

Thanks for the network reset information. I was having trouble connecting my 4311 with AirPlay and that did the trick. Typically I would go straight to the owner's manual, but Denon manuals are infuriatingly confusing
Thanks for your tip!

Anyone still searching for dilutions on this as I was just now, this information still works. It just saved my receiver today.

As a reminder, the UP/DOWN arrow reset not only does a Network Reset but also does a microprocessor reset so unless you have a backup of the config.dat file to a PC file, the AVR configuration will have to be completed again as well as running Audyssey again.

My 4311 has been sitting unused for the past 4 years, but I guess this is good to know for future reference.
