denon receiver keeps shutting off and blinking red

  • I have had a denon receiver for 7 or so months and have had no problems.  recently, however, that has changed.

    my current problems:

    1.) every so often, denon will just stop recognizing my ipod.  to fix it, I have to unplug and replug denon back in for it to recognize it again.  it is annoying, as I have to moving furniture around to get to the plug.

    2.) just NOW, denon will not stay on for more than 5 seconds.  after being turned on, it immediately turns off and blinks red.  I read online that wires could be touching, or it could be a bad speaker connection.  even after disconnecting ALL wires from denon, it is still turning off after 5 seconds and blinking red.

    any ideas? thoughts?

  • i just ended up calling and got an answer.  thanks.

  • Moved to home audio ...

    Would you mind sharing what the solution was, in case anyone else has a similar issue?

  • the rate of the blinking red eye is variable, depending on the issue.  in my case, it was blinking approximately 2 times per second.  *I THINK* i was told this is likely a faulty amplifier, which will need to be replaced.  i forget exactly what he told me, but 2-times-per-second-blinky-red-light is not a good thing.  

    after i was told my poor denon was in need of repair i didn't even bother asking about the ipod issue.
