Question about Denon D-M51DVS System

1 Answer

Unit automatically switches off

In the process of playing a DVD my Denon D-M51DVS system automatically stops playing the DVD and switches to stand-by mode (flashing orange light) The time between turning the machine on and it turning itself off seems to shorten as it continues to play the DVD and thus the machine gets hotter. I have tried to make sure the machine has enough space around it in case overheating is the cause of the shut down problem but to no avail

Maybe all you need is to dust off the DVD player's pickup. I have had this happen several times with several players. After dusting the pickup, those players are still in service.

DAEWOO/DVN8100N / After you put dvd in slot to start the play process , it will not load the dvd. it will close, start, stop ,( no disk) in display window. what is the fix?

Clean its optical pickup lens. Insert a lens cleaning disc into the machine, and play it. It will clean the optical lens automatically. If this do not help you, the optical pickup unit should be replaced.

Denon AVR 886 only shows analog input

Are your speakers able to handle the 886's power. I have the same reciever and changed by speakers as the Denon would turn off instead of frying the speakers.

As for the digital, have you used the option to change your audio feed and video feed. (for example - I'll show photos through the front input but use the CD -digital for music. Maybe the audio feed is locked onto an analog input. Just a suggestion.

Denon dvd player freezes in the same place on certain dvd's also sometimes willnot start to play disc unless re-inserted several times. Model D-M51DVS

sounds like its stoping during layer switch, if the player is old its needs to be cleaned. its best to clean it once every 20hrs or so. if you do not have a disk cleaner you should go buy one first. if the player is new return it and get the best dvd player you can buy for any amount the toshiba xde. this player is phenomenal, the best you will be amazed. no i dont work for toshiba but ever since they started making hd dvd players(i know they stopped)there players have become the best. trust me if you dont think so just return it. no harm done. if you want a blu-ray get ps3 I dont like them either but i have to admit after buying (for movies only)my third blu-ray player it is by far the best one. almost as good as the toshiba on standard dvd playback but not quite. good luck.

Theis is a known problem by Denon, you need to get a "patch" by denon to fix the problem. If you hook up to the other video out sources there is no problem (but no HD either)
