Default Fried Denon 3311CI

After a power surge and outage Tuesday my faithful treasured Denon 3311CI was cooked. Trying to get it repaired but there is a lack of quality repairers on Long Island. I called Best Buy's Magnolia shop repair center which is an off-premises facility with a 3 - 4 wk delay and an approx quote of $400-450. for power amp transformer. Replacement cost approx $1200.00.

Sounds like a good time to invest in a good UPS system.

A bit too late, but it will protect for the next time.

I have a Monster power center which didn't trip off so I'm thinking the beast died of natural causes just coincidental timing. I've been looking at a few on EBAY the only thing that scares meis the shipping, not the cost but the actual handling UPS on LI is not the best when it comes to handling.
Thanks for the heads up, I was hoping to find one closer to home so I could pick it up.

I would be contacting Monster about this, they state that nothing can get through their protection centers.

Old style power transformers do not just suddenly go bad, it takes quite a power hit, or major overload to fry one.

If you think it is the power transformer and can find a part number for it, you may be able to find one to replace it from this place.

I found a high-end Audio-Video repairer he says that the high power Denon units have been known to experience this kinda problem he's awaiting Denon to get back to him with repl cost. I also contacted that ebay seller with my concern with shipping re: packing.

Rizzo, accidently touched two speaker wires together when moving stuff and AVR was on (idiot me) heard a huge 'pop' and now my Marantz is in red light flashing protection mode. Blew something. Gonna go back to my Pioneer Elite AVR in storage until I figure something out or get a repair cost.

Heard from repair shop the problem was in the HDMI circuitry evidently it was passed thru the cable box cable via the HDMI output and that was the reason the Powerprotector was not included. I just ordered a new Denon AVRS540BT from accessories-4-less due in on Thur. Also just switched to Altice one cable service.

If it came in via the HDMI source then get one of these hummers.

Well worth the price.(don't forget to ground it)

It may be a good idea to look further into the product:


Question:

How do you property ground the unit? It comes with a ground cable but no instructions.

Answer:
You can't from what I can tell. Its snake oil.

By Mpire on August 31, 2016


I grounded to the AC ground in the outlet by using a grounded plug and only attaching the ground wire.

By Mackiver on August 31, 2016

Connect the loose end to something that is connected to ground.

If you have a satellite receiver or cable box, then it's coax shield is grounded, you can then get a ground block (make sure it's made for a satellite system if your using that one) and then run a ground wire up to the AV receivers ground connection.

Or if the AV receiver has an FM antenna input then the ground on the coax shield from that will do the trick.
And lastly if the AC wall socket if a 3 way type (U shaped ground socket) then the center screw is a good ground, but you may need to remove any paint form the bottom of the screw head, and I would also use a wire connector that will keep any loose wire out of the AC sockets.(if you use stranded wire)



DO NOT use the AC neutral as a ground.......This is a no no.
