Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver

Open Question

Wii, Family Ski, Denon 3805, screen flashes to black

My wii is connected to my Denon via a component cable and my TV to my denon via another component cable. The wii menu's are fine and so are wii play and wii sports. If I play Family Ski it flashes to black then after a few seconds returns to the game; it is almost if the sign is lost and then the TV finds it again.

If I use the composite wii cable through the Denon I get the black screen flashes in the menus and the other games.

Has anyone had similar problems; is there a way round this?

If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.

It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.

I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.

I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).

I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.

Just waiting for them to arrive.

An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.

Hope thats of use!

After connecting the Wii cables, connect a video cable to the "monitor out" connection to a compatible input on the TV.

SOURCE: no picture with cable to denon AVR-589

Long and painful answer!!! However, in the end, you need to bypass HDMI thru your receiver and go direct to the TV. Connect Digital Coaxial or Optical for audio to your receiver. Your version of HDMI in your receiver is not compatable with today's HDMI version. Yours is 1.1a and the current version is 1.3b going to 1.4. If you want detailed info as to "why", just google "HDMI 1.1 problems" you can read for hours! Sorry for the bad news! However, it is what it is. Hope this helps. If you need further help with setup, post a comment and I can give you further help.

Make sure you didn't get the video line out confused with one of the audio lines.
If using composite video the connection should be yellow and the left and right
channels should be red and white

Wii to a AVR 1610 via DVR input


"A" (single) component cable? Really? Not composite?

The source determines the aspect ratio of the video. If you decide to change it, that's your choice but it isn't accurate. 4x3 is intended to be shown 4x3. A circle will be elongated if you stretch the image to fit the screen.

Disregarding the black bars, is the geometry of the image correct? If so, why can't you just go with it?

If you want to change how the TV treats it, you'll have to refer to the TV's manual and controls.

No video


The Denon does not down scale you can not plug a DVD or other device in to the Denon using HDMI and have it come out Component, if your projector only has Component video inputs you must use Component video connections from the DVD and Cable box to the Denon

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

How to Connect HDMI Components with AVR 3805 as Hub


In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:

Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.
