Denon AVR-2106 high pitch tone when using video/audio inputs
Periodically, after being on and performing normally, my Denon AVR-2106 audio signal becomes a high pitch tone. This happens both with the TV and DVD player. I have periodically attached my Ipod to the cd input and never had the problem. Nothing makes the high pitch tone go away except turning the receiver off. Typically this happens just once but some times twice. No matter how long I leave the receiver on it never happens more than twice.
Any ideas as to what could be wrong?
Other than this I really like this receiver.

This depends on the signal source. If it is digital, from a digital receiver, the audio will be either S/PDIF or Optical and the video will be a yellow RCA connector (co-axial). If analogue, the audio will be two RCA connectors (red-right and white-left) and the video will be component (green, blue, red RCA) Alternatively you may have a composite audio/video signal (yellow) which is both audio and video. Of course you must be sure to choose the inputs into which you have plugged your signal source. Cheers, Don.
Make sure the control feature is disabled on both units so that they are not trying to send control signals to each other.
Secondly make sure your input is configured to hdmi for both audio and video within the receivers on screen menu The receiver usually auto senses the digital audio signal but doesn't automaticly know that it should use hdmi for video.
From the manual of your Denon page 41:
-It is not possible to select HDMI input signals.
• When playing HDMI video input signals, the analog video signal of
another input source cannot be selected for the HDMI video output."
Check your speaker wires on zone 2 and look inthe manual for speaker configurations with zone 2. you may have a speaker conflict. If you still have an issue, post a comment with your speaker setup and I'll help some more. Hope this helps
So you have no sound on any Inputs? This makes a difference, if it works on some inputs but not others. For a factory reset - turn the unit off by the ON/OFF button (not the standby button) hold in the SPEAkER A & B buttons at the smae time, while pressing them turn the system on by the ON/OFF button, wait about 3 seconds and the unit should reset everything.
TV has Component input (Green,Red,Blue) connect as follows: 1.Connect Component Video and Audio cables from the Cable box, PS3, DVD or Sat box to thea Component Video and Audio input on the Denon (TV/DBS, DBS,VCR1 VRS2, VDP or DVD). 2.Connect a Component Video cable from the Denon to the TV Component Video input. 3. If you do not have a cable or sat box and have a cable from the wall to the TV you must take an RCA(Red&White) audio out of the TV to an input listed in #1
