Thanks

Whoa! Could this be any more vague? To get an accurate answer, please post the model and the steps you are currently using and are not producing the results you are expecting.

Just trying to help you get an accurate answer.

Sorry about that. My model is a 3801. I am just simply pushing the "test tone" button on my remote, and if I go through the on-screen display still nothing happens. Upon trying to rectify the problem last night I noticed that I have a hum coming from my speakers on either setting (stereo/7.1). It's odd because the hum wasn't there last time and I haven't made any changes. I tried unplugging my sub, my satellites coaxial input, and moving my components plugs around without any success. The hum stops when I turn either my amp or receiver off. It also stops if I mute my receiver or change the input to PCM (no audio though).

Sorry again about the ambiguity. I was in a hurry.

Thanks for your help

It is likely you will need to get into the set up menu and find the part of that menu that has the test tones. Then the test tone button should work.

Just going out on a limb here - did you crack open the manual and sneak a peek? ;\)

yes I have looked at the manual many times even though I am very familiar with this receiver, having it for so long. I cannot run the test tones through the on-screen display either.

I forgot to mention something else regarding the humming noise. It gets louder when the microwave is being run. Even if I switch everything to my separate 20 amp circuit I still get a hum.

It sounds like the hum may be unrelated to the test tones.
If nothing else works you may want to try resetting the receiver. There should be instructions on how to do it in the manual. Usually you have to turn on the receiver while holding down a couple buttons. However, you will lose all your settings if you do this.

When I push "test tone" on my Denon 2805 remote nothing happens either. I've always gone into the setup menu.

Push Setup on the remote.

Scroll down to Speaker Setup and select the Enter button to enter that category.

Scroll down to Channel Levels and hit Enter.

Select either Auto or Manual. I like manual as I can then go from speaker to speaker at my own pace.

Then scroll down to Tone Start and select Enter.

Of course you need an SPL meter to help as well.

Your steps may be different for that model.

I tried that. The "test tone" button on my remote has always worked. I just purchased a SPL meter :-). That's how I found out my current problems.

I just found out that when my satellite was hooked up last week, the technician somehow changed my cables around so now I get audio for my DVD and CD player when my receiver is set to CD(no audio from my DVD player when set to DVD on the receiver). Would this cause any problems?

As you probably know I'm handicapped and can't switch my cables around etc. This is one of the times when owning a home theater really sucks. I have to wait for competent hands :-)

Thanks

Just spoke with my friend on the phone who was trying to rectify this problem with me last night. He reminded me that when he unplugged the coaxial cable from the back of my satellite receiver and plugged it back in, there were odd noises coming from my speakers, feedback?. It also happened when he disconnected and reconnected the coaxial at the joiner where the cable enters the house.

Trying to be as detailed as possible

Wow, I'm not sure what to say, maybe someone else will chime in. To bad one of us Axiom buddies does not live near you. \:\)

There is also the reset option of your Denon, to set it back to factory defaults? If you look in the troublshooting section in the manual, it describes how you hold down a few buttons near the main power switch, while you turn off/on the unit. This may help, not sure...
