Hi Folks,


I think I know the answer this one, but figure I throw it out there just to make sure.


I have a Denon AVR-3300 Receiver, I had it in a cabinet under my TV and as feared, I believe it overheated.


The unit powers on fine, everything lights up correctly and makes the same "click" sounds when the speakers engage after power up, but no sound. If I fiddle with it enough, volume, input, etc, sometimes I can get some sound to come out of it (fades in) but its weak and if I switch an input or change anything I lose it again.


I've had the unit for many years and got good life out of it, probably time for an upgrade anyway, but I figure if anyone had an idea if I could get this unit working again, I'd like to try and save it.


Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance!

Doesn't that unit have pre-outs for all channels? If so, and if repairing it is prohibitive (assuming the damage is in the power amp section), you could add a 5-channel power amp to it. The problem I have with things like this is finding anybody to even look at repairing them. So far, for the 'light' repairs I've needed, I've relied on myself. So far, so good (except for my SX-1050 which is still screwing with me!
)
