OSD not working (black screen)

Hi,
I have an AVR 635 bought in february 2006.
I used OSD interface on my TV frequently until one month ago. Since then I did not tried to used it until 2 days ago.
When I connect to OSD I see now a black screen, no text, instead of my blue screen.
I made the following actions:
- I changed the wires
- I modified the resolution of my TV (Panasonic Viera HD)
- I changed connections in TV and AVR using Video and Composant connections
- I resetted AVR
- I upgraded AVR CPU to 5.15
- I resetted the remote control

I still have the black screen.
What is happening? How can I solve my problem?

Thanks.

Your 635 will not display the OSD screen through component. You must use either s-video or rca. It won't upconvert the screen menu this route.
I had one up until a week ago. There are two outputs on the back specifically for the OSD screen. I used a separate old 13" TV with s-video to do my setups. Hope this helps.

Can't access osd on screen display from remote control


Have you checked to make sure your TV is on the correct input?

It should be on the input the Receiver is connected to in order for the OSD to appear .

Seems you set it to "Stereo Direct" mode. This is an analog only mode, while you are using a digital signal. You can change this with the mode button.
Press menu, on the main menu screen 1, scroll down to stereo direct. Turn this OFF.
This should solve your issue!

Hello, I have an denon avr-3801 and have the same problem that my set up will not pop up on the display screen. one expert on here said it can be disabled on the remote, and to enable it. How do you do...


The setting on Page 26 says it only turns OSD off for messages other than the Menu Screens. If you could turn the menus off how would you ever turn them back on?

If you are using only component video, see page 10, 3rd bullet.

"The AVR-3801’s on-screen display signals are not output from the color difference (component) video output jacks (MONITOR OUT)."

It needs an s-video or composite path for the OSD.

Gui does not come up on screen


Possible causes & solutions, in order of simplicity:
1. Wrong input selected on TV - Reconfirm you have selected the input corresponding to the receiver's MON. OUT connection, e.g., component video, S-video.
2. Wrong output set on receiver - Reconfirm you haven't previously selected an output on the receiver that is unavailable on your TV, e.g., on some receivers, HDMI cannot be used for on-screen display. The front panel may show the setting as a backup for no on-screen display. If not, you may have to reset the receiver to factory defaults -- find out how to do this in the manual.
3. For component video or HDMI only -- Output signal from receiver may be set to a mode that the TV cannot process, e.g. 720p for a TV with only 480i/480p/1080i capability.
4. If the receiver is a high-end model with "Pure Direct" or similar settings that have been selected, the video circuitry and possibly also the OSD may be unavailable. Try switching to a normal setting or another input.
By the way, the usual term for the menus from an AV receiver is "on-screen display (OSD)" -- not "GUI (graphical user interface)," which is more appropriate for computers or cell phones.

On-screen display (OSD) isn't coming up because you're only viewing picture from your Blu-Ray player. You need to switch TV input over to your receiver to get the OSD. But you probably figured that out by now. Don't worry, I've done that before too.

Avr5800 with no on screen display


With some receivers, the on-screen display is limited to a specific video output from the receiver to your TV.

I'm not 100% positive if that's the issue with yours, but it's likely.

If you're connected via Component or HDMI out, you may want to try S-video or composite video.

If that doesn't work, consult Denon to find out which output does your OSD.

My new Harman/Kardon AVR 154 has no sound and the blinking light cannot be fixed because I cannot get the OSD blue menu to come up on the TV screen from the remote.


Do you have your receiver output connected to the input on your TV? For example, if the receiver is in connection number 1, is your TV set to connection 1?

720p output doesn't work


The problem might be that the set can not handle the change in signal. Try setting the AVR-247 to 720P first then turning on the set. Or manually set the TV to receive 720P then change the AVR. TI believe that you have a connectivity issue where the two units are not speaking the same language at the same time. Update this with your results and please post the TV make and model.
Thanks,

Arcam AVR 200 OSD


Hi

Think you might have to use composite video out for the OSD menu to appear. Think I heard somewhere S-Video out doesn't work for.

Haven't tried yet on my own, but I will in time :)


Cheers,
Simon
