Question about Denon DVD-2500 DVD Player

7 Answers

No sound with Denon DVD-2500

I have a Denon AVR 3300 with a Denon DVD-2500. Both about 10 yrs old. When I try to play a DVD, I have video but now get no sound. If I turn the volume way up, I can hear faint sound--like program from somewhere--maybe the TV, but not the dvd.  I tried several discs, same result. Also tried the VCR and audio works fine, so I'm thinking it's the dvd player and not the amp. Suggestions?

The "faint sound--like program from somewhere" is an interfeerence problem related to a bad shielded video cable.

Also the sound but no video is probably because of the cable.

Just replace the cable that connects from DVD to TV.

Hi there
Check the audio jacks at the back of the unit to make sure that the phono leads are in the correct output source.
Also hook the DVD up to the TV using a standard scart lead to rule out the audio output on the DVD player itself.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

As it was working properly before and now suddenly it has stopped giving sound fron dvds.thgis indicates as the unit is 10 year old it can be the problem of any thing got short in the circuit board which is making this problem of no sound/other wise the cables are either fauly or got looser or not connrected properly or the socket in which the cable is connected is got loose internally.just remove all the external cables connected to the unit and clean the cable pins and sockets  make them absolutely dust free.then reconnect every thing and check out. thanks.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your post "but now get no sound" indicates that it was working before and just recently had the "no output audio" fault. It would be appreciated if you could pls post back/describe how the DVD 2500 is connected to the AVR 3300. Of particular interest would be which input of the AVR is used by the 2500.

Initially, you can try:

  • relocating the 2500 connection to any of the other inputs of the 3300;
  • play the 2500 with the 3300 either in 5-CH STEREO, MATRIX, STEREO or DIRECT but not DOLBY DIGITAL, DTS nor DOLBY PRO-LOGIC;
  • likewise, if possible do not use any of the DSP "effect" modes;
  • playing an ordinary audio CD on the 2500.
Pls post back result(s) of above tests. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Assuming you play the same DVD dics which were working fine before. When the sound gradually decrease and eventually no sound the cause is sound IC gone bad. YOu can change this chip in a local repairing shop.

I think your DVD disc has DTS system in sound and your sound system is 10 years old so could not process its sound.
You will get good sound if you play Dolby Pro Logic DVD disc.

    Please check dvd audio connections as is it optical cable or RCA cable used.
    You can confirm sound connection by playing an Audio CD in same player.

Try the Denon website itself,if ur DVD player still in the market,their website will let u print it a coppy for free.Not anymore on the market look for their phone toll free number 1-800... call and talk to their custumer service department and pay them a fee.They should send u out a coppy.

My go video dvr4400 does not play homemade dvd's


Usually it isn't the speed of the homemade DVD but the type. DVDs come in four different formats:

DVD+R
DVD-R
DVD+RW
DVD-RW

Some DVD players will play all formats and some don't. Your manual should tell you. Do you know what formats are available for playback on your Go video?

Have an AVR-2807 with a Toshiba DVD and Harmony remote. Havent played a DVD for a while and tonight when I try, I get picture and no sound. If I move the input to CD I get sound but I lose picture. ...


Have you changed the connections recently? If so, maybe something got plugged back in differently.

Otherwise check the AVR-2807's System Setup. There is a menu to associate different video inputs to each of the audio inputs. Probably the input with sound doesn't have the right video input associated with it, though I'm not sure you can associate a video input with the CD input... which tells me maybe the connections got changed?
