I'm looking for some help with my Denon DRA-545R receiver. I've owned this receiver from new and have not experienced any problems until the last few years when it started having issues starting up. I replaced a capacitor (C645) after finding this thread:

which resolved the startup issue but now I have no sound from either the speakers or the headphone jack. The issue I'm experiencing appears very similar to that described in this thread:

However, there appears to be some differences. Some include:

• No 'hum' when contacting VR301​
• I don't believe this unit has experienced a power surge​
• The unit appears to be operating at a normal temperature​

I've tried to work through the AAC thread above in diagnosing the problem but I think the reason for no audio may be different and I am unsure of how to proceed at this point. I'd really love to repair this receiver in part because it has sentimental value. Any help at all is greatly appreciated!
