DENON CDR-W1500 DISPLAY READS "DIG. UNLOCK" WHEN IN OPTICAL INPUT

When selecting the input to be in "OPT" optical recording. The display reads "DIA. UNLOCK" and the "D" is always flashing. The manual said to check all connections for the optical inputs and they are good. The optical cable is known good because I tried it on another digiatl recorder unit and it works. I can record in analog mode ok. The record display does not recieve any signal on the display when tring to record using the optical inputs.

SOURCE: denon 3801.cant display setup on tv

Hello gerrydav, What might be happenening is the refresh rate for your blu-ray is offsync for your preferred display. You should be able to change it by plugging it into another TV and playing around with the settings. If you have further problems please feel free to post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

SOURCE: No system configration display on AVR3300 since moving.

Make sure the two switches on the remote are all of the way to left most position before you try using the SYSTEM SETUP button - if the AVR is going into SETUP, the LCD display should be saying "SYSTEM SETUP". (I think that model does - most do).  also make sure that the Composite or S-Video on the TV's input 1 work from something else like a VCR, DVD player, ETC. rule out the TV and the cable first.

SOURCE: Can't record out from a digital input

It only passes the signal it see's. Digital for Digital and Analog for Analog. Try running a Standard analog RCA from your Cable box to the receiver then try and record. Hope this helps. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further.

SOURCE: Denon CDR-W1500 not recording

I had the exact problem and could not get any of the CR-Rs that I had to work. I looked up the code in the user's manual where it said the error means it's not a recordable audio CD and to refer to page 6. I looked at the front of the manual and saw that it mentions that the CD-Rs must be audio CD-R discs. I did some research online and found that there are in fact differences between CD-Rs that are just marked that and those marked as Audio or Music CD-Rs. I bought a set of CD-Rs that clearly had marked "Compact Disc Digital Audio Recordable" on the package. When I inserted this disc, I had no problems getting the recording to work. So, make sure the discs you use are clearly marked "Audio" or "Music". A computer burner won't know the difference, but your Denon recorder will.

Your original post said it was blank discs that didn't work.

Now it's ALL discs including pre-recorderd ones. THAT changes things considerably.

Is it audibly rotating the disc once it's loaded?

the input source you have selected is not working. If digital it might be a copy guarded source which the deck cannot read...

If you get fancier and are trying to record the optical output from a newer device like a 5.1 or 7.1 receiver although the signal will go through the MD deck cannot decode the advanced optical signal. There are adaptor boxes on eBay which decode 5.1 & 7.1 optical signals to an optical signal the older MD can read and record from.

Try selecting another source like analog RCA. The digital stuff I mentioned applies to digital RCA and Optical Cables like toslink.

I cant get the surround sound to work after connecting the Samsung BluRay Player to my Onkyo reciever using a optical digital connection or directly with the HDMI cable ?


Hi

You will have to assign the optical input to the input you are using, so for instance if you have plugged the optical cable into opt 1 on the onkyo reciever and wish to use the DVD input on the onkyo reciever, you need to go into the set of the onkyo to digital assignments or in/out assignments, dependent on the model, and select OPT1 for the DVD input. You can find out how to exactly do this in the onkyo's manual under 'digital assignments' or 'input assignments'.

The SIGNAL: ANALOG won't disappear even though I've gone through the menu and selected my input OPT: CD/DVD/TV whatever it may be. How do I get my optical input recognized by the receiver? Is it broken?


It will change automatically once it detects a suitable digital signal.

So yes it could actually be faulty but more likely you aren't sending a suitable format digital signal from the source. check the digital audio output settings on whatever device you are using
old dvd players will output PCM 2 channel digital or bitstream multichannel (dolby dig or DTS) which your unit can handle whilst new blurays will have some very hi bit rates -eg192khz 24bit. You may need to lower the output in the menus to get the Pioneer to accept them.

It is always possible the optic has got kinked or fractured, which causes light scattering/corruption and will cause the same symptom

Onkyo TX-DS939 optical selection problem help!


That coaxial, opt-1 and opt-2 are available only if they are not selected to some other channel. So you have to check if opt-2 is selected to Video-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,CD or DAT. Change that to Analog and then opt-2 is free to another device.

KS3102 Digital Optical Input Problem


What I did was turn on the system, don't put in any dvd in, or select an output 1 or 2. Press Menu on the remote, the display on the system display, not on tv should show Speaker, and other options. Select Input, select the one you want to use as the Optical Sound by press enter, then it will ask you on the system display input or optical sound input. Select optical input and press enter it will then say saved. You can then hit exit til goes back to where the display is back on main screen, or just wait til it exit by itself.

No digital to reciever??


This tv will only output the sound from a digital tv channel through the optical output when using the tv's digital tuner. So if you are connecting a DVD etc it will not output through the optical output on the tv. ONLY digital chanels through the tv's tuner will give you sound. Refer to the tv's owners manual for more info.

Din unlock means 'digital input is unlocked' meaning it is not receiving a signal on the **digita**l input you have selected. ( eg optical or single co-axial digital from another cd player etc) Check your connections and re-select the source using the front panel until you select the one you want. What are you recording from?
