    I hope someone can suggest what is wrong with my friends amplifier ?

    He has a high end Denon AV amp (can't remember which model), it is about 4/5 years old and has started to shut down immediately he switches it on ?

    It powers up, all the lights come on, the DD light shows up, as does the error/ overload light - then the thing goes into standby mode...

    What causes overload and what should he do to fix this...?

    many thanks....

    DIsconnect all inputs and speakers ... does it still shut down immediately. If not then reconnect everything one by one, making sure the connections are good and not touching the case or any other output (this is especially relevant with speaker cables).

    Failing that ... well I don't know ... contact a dealer for advise / repair.

    Failing that, try to initialise it.
    See the manual for how to do that.

    Seems like a short like the other users suggest remove all imputs and speaker cables and then switch on. Get a multi-meter check cables etc.Seems more or less Speaker fault.
