    when I switch my denon amp on the power on/standby switch goes from red to green then after 2 seconds reverts back to red ! I can't get any sound out of it because it won't stay on - any ideas !

    Check the speaker terminals aren't short-circuited - you may have a stray strand of wire across them which is causing the protection circuits to cut in.

    In that case, I'm afraid it sounds as if a trip back to the dealer may be in order. The only other thing that might be tripping the protection circuits is if the amp is overheating, but assuming you haven't mounted it in an oven, that seems unlikely after 2 seconds ;-)

    Before you do, do look very carefully around the speaker terminals and make sure there aren't any stray strands of wire shorting something, even with all the cables disconnected - it wouldn't take any more than one single strand from within a speaker cable to have come adrift to cause a short that would shut the amp down, and that wouldn't be easy to spot.
