Doh. Direct Tv was installed two days agao. Hi folks, So I just ended up picking up a Pioneer Elite VSX-33 receiver, and have stumbled across a problem that I, well, never considered prior to buying any receiver. Overheating comes from a demand for more current than the power supply can deliver. Can be watching a source and it'll cut out (go to black screen) and then cut back in after a few seconds. I have a Pioneer vsx-60 Elite overheating issues. Receiver is hot to touch, switch the receiver to my spare one (luckily I'm only using 3 out of 4, so always have a spare) and it'll work fine. The receiver is overheating while it is OFF. Make sure your speakers' impedance isn't too low for your receiver (which probably isn't rated for less than an 8-ohm load on each channel). I have an old AV Receiver, as above and when I play CD's/ listen to the radio for a while, it overheats and shuts itself down. Problems with Denons overheating is well documented over the internet. Some receivers have heatsinks that cool down certain components, and yours is probably overheating, and the audio processor is dropping out. Has anyone else had this problem? Please would someone help me to fix this problem. When it is OFF, it makes a humming sound. When it is OFF, it makes a humming sound. Hence my belief it's the receiver. I already have it raised on "stilts", and the cabinet is open in the back and front so there's good air flow around it. I just did a test and had the receiver running watching a movie and then also just on cable for about 3 hours running. I've been getting an overheating message on my Genie. A short circuit has no impedance. It has 7 speakers hooked up to it and video running through it. Current demand goes up as impedance goes down. What else can I do to keep it from getting too warm? It is on a shelf of it's own, in a wall unit with air circulating above it (10cms) and down both sides (+- 3 cms each side). The location I want to put this receiver is not large enough to keep it from overheating.

A good strategy when using fans to ventilate electronics is to have 2 fans: 1 fan at the bottom to pull cool air into the enclosure, and 1 fan at the top to push the hot air out. It could possibly just be an internal clog or external blockage with debris in the fins of the radiator. From 1st hand experience, they are prone to over heating and the receiver will go bad quickly if you don't have good air flow. Part of the issue is overheating receivers. With a Denon AV receiver particularly you need good ventilation. I left mine on accidentally overnight and it went bad. This issue has been addressed in Version 4.9.
