Cant Access System Setup on Denon AVR-588

I purchased a Display Denon AVR-588

When I finished connecting all cables and turned it on, I could not access the System Setup Menu. Tried using remote and buttons on front panel. What am I missing?

    Yes the Receiver is connected via HDMI to my TV. I think the AVR-588 System Setup Menu appears on the front panel display of the Receiver (per manual). I purchased it as a display model. To get to a setup menu I also tried resetting the microprocessor by pressing the power button while also pressing speaker a and b buttons on the front panel. No matter how long I held them down it did not reset. I still have no access to the setup Menu

    Figured it out, there was a headphone adapter jack plugged into the front of the unit which, for one reason or another, disabled the system setup menu...Crazy

    Bought a second hand AVR-3803 that seemingly was a demo model and has been factory locked from accessing system setup features- I did reset the remote but there is a Denon supplier secret power on sequence required to achieve this - like power off and then on by for example pushing the 3803 SURROUND MODE and SURROUND PARAMETERS buttons together in simultaneously - this is not declared anywhere on the web and it appears only Denon and Registered Suppliers know this code - not sure if the EIA RS232C interface and its protocol allow access the the setup? Are you able to perhaps supply the power on front facia push button sequence to achieve the factory reset on the 3803

Are you connected with video cables to a tv or "monitor" this is more than likely were the setup is visible for speaker configuration, input assignment etc, most denon receivers work this way so I would suspect you need to re-check the video connection until a set-up picture appears.

How to connect Denon avr 1804 connecting to roku hd


I connected by Roku to a Denon 1804 Receiver this way:- I plugged the cable that came with the Roku into VCR2 input jack of the Denon. (I used VCR2 because it was available).- Using the remote from the Denon, I made sure the slide switch was on "Audio." (See page 20 of Denon Manual).- I pressed pressed the System Setup button- *System Setup appears in display of Denon- Using the cursor buttons I scrolled to menu Digital in Assignment- I set Menu item 16 Coaxial to VCR2 since that was the input jack I used for the Roku. - After making the selection press the CH Select Enter button to save- To exit the System Setup press the System Setup button again- When using the Roku, select the input source as VCR2 (or whatever jack you used). You should now have sound through the Denon.The most important step is to read the Denon manual starting on page 20

RE: Denon AVR 3300 - I cannot get the system setup menu to display on Phillips P50PFP5332D tv screen? All connected components work and sound great, but I cannot see Denon's Setup menu on tv to a


I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv.
The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source.
Hope that helps!

Denon AVR 588 7.1-- Sound setup questions


This reciever does not decode the audio through HDMI, the HDMI ports are simply a pass-through. To get audio you need to connect an optical audio cable from the PS3 to the reciever also. I figured this out after 2 hours of trying to get audio from the HDMI cable. Here is a link that shows the different audio formats supported through HDMI by the different Denon models. It looks like the AVR-788 is the lowest model that supports audio through HDMI. Hope that helps.

No HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???


the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv
