Denon AV2808 help wont turn on


my amps been working fine for ages , today it was all on ok but all of a sudden i just noticed it was off i dont remember turning it off yet when i try and power it on nothing happens even tried a different cable and still nothing.

What could be wrong ?

A long shot but maybe the electricity supply to the wall socket has failed. You could check this by plugging in a lamp or trying the amp from a known good socket.

Have you checked the trouble-shooting section of the users' manual?

Ah - see the problem is solved

Yeh, it's a strange quirk of Denon to put the main on/off at the front and on such a tiny switch - the standby one being huge !
Much better to have it at the rear next to the power cord like most other manufacturers, I would think.
