My Denon AVR-1611 is no longer outputting sound. It just emits a hum when I turn up the volume. Nothing has been moved or disconnected. Does it sound like the receiver is pooched?

what happens if you change to the Tuner and dial in a know working station?

You got kids or pets? Check all the selectors, try a radio station. CD, etc... unplug it, count to 10, plug it back in... try everything again..

I had a similar problem with a Denon 1610 halfway through watching a film and had to finish watching using headphones.

So check if your headphones socket works, if it does try blowing in it or better still use a can of compressed air. Sounds ridiculous but a build up of dust in there somehow shorts out the sound.

I didn't believe it either when this was suggested but it worked.

I hooked a DVD player up and I now have sound, so it must be something to do with the recent work Telus did to update us to fibre optics TV. I will investigate further. Thanks for your replies. Will also try the compressed air trick.

if the dvd play . is it fiber optic, coax, or hdmi then check your new tv receiver. it might ask you if you want to output sound trough hdmi, or bitstream.
because bitstream is coax or fiber optic . and if using hdmi, you will have to set it to audio trough hdmi.

I second the recommendation from Splityew. I've done it twice to bring my Denon back to life. It's apparently a fairly well known issue as I originally came across the solution outside of this forum. Holding a vacuum nozzle close to the headphone jack worked for me.

Good luck!

:lol:
Doesn't the noise get in the way of the music?

Found the problem. A dongle plugged into the back of the PVR had come loose. System works fine now. Haven't lost faith in my Denon. Thanks for your help!

In NA yid derived slang... it's called schmutz. Keep the schmutz off yer 1/4' jacks.
