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.

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.

ViewSonic 19" flat screen monitor goes black - intermittently


Hi,
There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed.
Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this.
Best wishes,

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.

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 :)
