I came back from visiting my parents this weekend to discover my denon 3802 seems to have packed in.

The power light flashes when i switch the power on and it won't respond to anything, other than when i fiddle with the input knob a green led comes on at the surround speaker a indicator, quite what that means i dont know.

I've tried taking out all the speaker cables and turning it on but that didnt work, does this mean its just died? :( i hope not because i can't afford a new one at the moment!

Is it possible to turn off surround A and start surround B.
Long shot, I know :(

Have you tried a microprocessor reset?

IIRC, a flashing power light indicates a system error. There's a section in the manual on how to do a reset.

The last thing to try is to disconnect everything, and double check that there isn't a stray strand of speaker wire shorting something out, then try another reset. Check the mains plug, and try a different wall socket as well.

If it still doesn't work, it's probably a faulty output transistor/IC, or a faulty overload protection device (thermistor). A decent AV electronics engineer should be able to fix these faults for £50 or so.

Disconnected everything again, tried a different power point etc but nope, its dead :(

Is it worth opening the top? My warranty/gaurentee or whatever would be long gone by now I would have thought and since i'm getting it repaired anyway..

I wouldn't open it, unless you really know what you're doing.
I doubt you'll see anything and you risk doing damage.
Especially if you're looking to get it repaired.
It ain't worth it mate, I've been there and you start thinking "hmmm, that doesn't look right". Next thing you know, it's "oh :censored: "
And I know a little bit.
