Can't get video to show on TV

Have had this unit for some time and worked great. A guest over to a party went click-crazy on the receiver and now I can't get the Sony Television to show video from either a DVD player or from a Digital cable box via the Denon AVR-1803 receiver.

Specifically, I have been using the same input (Video 4) on the television, and tried all others to no avail.
The TV (Sony Bravia) will play a game or video directly cabled into the side TV input ports (Video 2)
This makes me think it is the receiver. However, I can hear the audio from both the DVD and cable box inputs via the receiver to the speakers. Just can't get the video to appear on the Sony anymore.
I have tried resetting the TV. No change. I don't know if resetting the Denon would help as I can't find the method for doing such.
None of the cabling has changed in any fashion from when it did work.

    I'm a little thick, perhaps, but are you talking about the Sony TV or the Receiver, and precisely how does one find the particular menu and menu options? I would like to try this....

  • Jeff dole Nov 16, 2008

    Tried using all the inputs on TV with DVD on, and that doesn't get it working.

    Reconnected everything - no difference.

    Tried other suggestion - nothing doing. Still no video

Try pressing the TV input buttnon with the Receiver and the DVD on, until you catch the DVD signal.

Check all cables at the back, eventually try using replacement cables.

Ensure that the DVD output setting is set on the same line out connected to the TV, as this devices usualliy have two different output lines.

You need to go into the set-up menu and make sure the proper video output is selected.

    It would be helpful to know what type of video input you are using. Is it the composite (yellow RCA) or the S-video (black din cable) or component (3 RCA cables red, blue, green).

    The function that you are using for each video device must have the proper setting for it.

    Do you have the owners manual? If so, there are complete instructions on how to set up the video inputs and outputs. It is a little confusing to figure out without the manual. I will look for one and see if I can find the proper procedure for it.

    What I can tell you even without the manual is that the video line you are using to go from the receiver to the TV must be set properly in the receiver for output to the TV, and the video lines you have frm the DVD or other devices must be set right for the function they are being used on. The remote and the receiver both have a button for the menu.

    While you are on the proper function (DVD) setting for the Denon, try to use the "Video Select" button which is right next to the tuning buttons on the display just below the LCD. Have the DVD player turned on and the TV also set to the proper video line that is coming form the Denon, then press the "Video Select" button and see if that changes the output to the TV. Watch the display of the Denon also while you do this, it should have an indicator light that shows what video source you have selected. If you know which type of video you are using for the DVD lpayer, make sure that is what the display is indicating for the video output.

    I will now see if I can find an owners manual for you to use in PDF format.

A simple composite video connection from its Monitor Out to the appropriately-selected input on your TV may resolve that.

Old receiver won't work with new HD TV

This looks like a great receiver for its day. I think you can keep it in service until you get into SACD, DTS or some of the other nearly obsolete but awesome audio formats that exist.

Most people use modern AC receivers to also manage video switching between multiple digital video/audio sources such as HDTV and Blu-Ray. Personally, I run mine with the videos going straight to different inputs on my TV and the audios going into different inputs on my receiver. Yes, I have to switch two things whenever I switch video sources. Life could be MUCH worse!

In actuality, there is little real need to have the TV attached to the receiver for much more than a basic video output, which this unit has, so you can observe its On Screen Displays, mostly for setup.

To address your unit and modern TV's... your limitation appears to be that it does not have an HDMI port or two for those possible hi-end AV inputs that you have not mentioned owning. If you do have them you'll actually have to do like I do and think a moment when changing video sources. The horror! As I said above, I would not consider that a show-stopper. The three digital audio inputs (two coaxial and one optical) might be plenty and of the right types for your equipment mix, but there are no 5.1 analog ins or outs for the real high-end audio formats, but you may never want nor encounter them. You can probably live without 5.1 analog.

Without knowing more about the TV in question it's hard to answer what the Best Buy guy told you. If the TV has a standard S-video or composite video input this receiver will work with it for basic video and your other HD/DVD sources can fight for whatever inputs the TV has available.

Best Buy would probably like to sell you a new receiver but I think you'll keep this one online for awhile.

Harman Kardon AVR 325 randomly switching inputs

Step one would be to ascertain exactly what the failure mode is - which input(s) aggravate it, what kind of connection, etc. Narrow the scope a bit.

The clicking and fickering sound like it's struggling with an intermittent source connection. When it starts flickering see if you can change the problem by wiggling the cables one at a time.

Do any of your video sources have multiple attachment types connected at the same time, say, hdmi and component, but to different assigned inputs?

My resolution is very low and I am unable to adjust. I have brand new monitor . Verified working great. Was told video driver could be corrupted? was great allday then just went crazy.

Try reinstalling the video card if you have the drivers from the control panel. It will be in System then Device Manager. Look for Display Manager and right click then choose update driver and follow the prompts.
