I have a Denon AVR-1603 that when I power it up it goes through its self check and then goes into safe mode. The "ON\\STANDBY" continues to flash. Are there any resets or anything that I can do? Any ideas would be great!
Disconnect each speaker one at a time while turning the unit back on in between. If the receiver stays on then the last speaker you disconnected has a short, or some other problem. It could be the speaker, the wire, some type of interference, etc.
If it's not a speaker then do the same with each source (unlikely, but possible).
Even then you may want to consider a newer model as repair is likely to cost at least $150-$200. A newer model will include HDMI, and possibly Audyssey even networking (depending on the model), all of which would be nice upgrades.
