Question about Denon AVR-2800 Receiver

Very low sound on TV and DVD no tuner

I just purchased this unit used and I don't think I have it hooked up properly. Do I need the video in and out from the TV hooked up. My TV is a Sony about 10 years old, does not appear to have a video out. I only have 2 speakers so I don't need surround sound.

PROSCAN PS27123 TV directions how to hook up dvd player

First, I strongly urge you to purchase a short HDMI cable IF BOTH units are equipped to utilize them. Run HDMI "out" from the player and hook the other end to HDMI "in" on the TV. That will avoid all this angst you are experiencing now since HDMI carries audio and video at a high resolution.

If you must use the RCA cables, make sure they are coming out of the"out" jacks on the player and going into the "in" jack on the TV. Now, I feel strongly your problem has to do with the "input" or "source" button on the remote. You MUST have it set to DVD player. Play with it. It's imperative to, with the remote, select the proper source - which in this case is DVD player, rather than, say, cable box, computer, etc. By the way, even if you use HDMI, you'll still have to do that, and you will also still have to select the correct input (sounds maybe like you have 3). Good luck!

I am unable to record digital tv channels on my LG RC389H dvd recorder. I have a new tv with a digital tuner and have hooked them up but unable to view any digital tv on my LG player only the old analogue...

The RC389H is only deigned to receive standard TV signals, not digital. If you are routing through a straight cable line you usually can't access anything above 100 if you don't have a digital tuner. Try using a cable/satellite box if you haven't already, this bypasses the requirement for a digital tuner because the cable/satellite box has one of it's own.

How do I connect a dvd player with surround sound?

This depends on how you have it hooked up. You're going to need a Tuner. A simple method is to connect only the Yellow RCA cable (or composite cables) to your T.V. Then connect Red and White RCA cables to the Tuner/Surround sound system you're using on which ever input you're comfortable with. I.E. CD/AUX/TAPE..etc. Change your tuner to that input, and you should get your surround sound through the speakers. Make sure you change the input on your T.V. to what ever video source you got the wires in. If your tuner allows you to hook up a video source to it, you can just hook it up to the tuner and run the DVD player off the tuner only. The first option helps avoid confusion if your tuner isn't set up for any other devices to play video through it.

Please recheck the model. It looks like it is the DVP33040V/17 model.

You said you cannot set or play DVD/VCR tapes.

1. Is this unit hooked up properly to your TV?
2. Is your TV set to its correct viewing channel?

This is the tunerless model so the very basic way of connecting this to the TV is using the composite cables (yellow/red/white). Then find the correct viewing channel on the TV. Note:IT IS NOT CHANNEL 3 OR 4. It depends on your TV make. Most of the time it is called AV, VIDEO, INPUT, SOURCE, EXT, AUX, GAME,etc. Most of the time, the TV remote control has a specific button with those labels. You can also check your TV manual how to get the VIDEO channel when using the composite cables.

Furthermore, if you would do recordings, you will need an extenal tuner (cable box or satellite box) for this unit. You have to connect an external tuner box using another set of composite AV cables - that is:
AV out from the cable/satellite box to VCR IN on the DVD/VCR.

just hook up a vhs or dvd player from home that has tv outputs, but you would need a power inverter for the power supply of the vhs, then put the vhs audio and videos outputs to the dual's input: the auxiliars. make sure the vhs has channel changing.

No picture or sound - think the tuner is bad

You may either have a bad tuner in your TV (not unusual for Sony's) or a broken connection near the tuner on the flimsy circuit boards they're using on this model. The tuner requires about 30 volts DC to work, and this may not be reaching the tuner due to a crack in the board connection. You probably have several A/V inputs that can be used for cable video and DVD video and your owners manual should explain how to connect them clearly. The outputs of those units go into the inputs of the TV set. It's That Simple!
