Denon DVD 2910 - No HDMI output

My DVD291 was modified by PatsConnection in Canada for better 2 ch. audio quality....I just upgraded TV to HDMI compatible (from DVI). My problem is that even after resetting to factory specs - via code from video.. I run player to stereo (2ch) integrated amp, so I get audio signal, just no video. Question: is it possible that during mod - the HDMI input was disconnected and not re-connected? Is this something I could remedy fairly easily? Many thanks for any guidance! -Steve

    I have the same problem. Ik just bought a new samsung plasma hdmi version 1.3 compatible and full hd(1080p). Now i want my dvd 2910 to connect with it. And gues what, no hdmi connection detected. I have tried it to another lcd screen en also no hdmi connection. I have also reset to default factory settings. Guess what.... no connection.

    Next step: I have downloaden new firmware for the dvd 2910 and run it to my player. Still no hdmi connection.

    I had contact with my denon distributor and they couldn't help me either, they said i must contact my dealer but what can they do? I really don't know what to do anymore...

SOURCE: Video performance question

The 2801 (I used to have a 2803) is just an AV receiver, so it doesn't do any video processing.

If you get a DVD player with HDMI or DVI output, you'll be better off doing what you said - bypass the receiver for video and connecting the video directly to your TV, and the audio to your receiver.

It makes things less convenient since you can't switch inputs only with the receiver's remote, but you'll get a much better picture.

If you really need to control the whole system with a single remote, consider getting a Logitech Harmony remote or something similar. They're very convenient.

SOURCE: no HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???

You can also use a digital coax cable (color orange) to go into coax 1 for DVD coax 2 for cable box. Just make sure to set the coax in input settings. The coax cables are a little cheaper than the optical cables and work just as well.

SOURCE: Denon AVR 1705-no audio on TV

I have had the same problem and was told that it is a "board" inside. Essentially it has lost the surround sound ability and can only play things in Direct/Stereo. Mine is just over 2 years and I originally thought my kids had hit a button on the thing causing the issue...ended up paying $100 to trouble shoot it and confirm that it is internal and more expensive to fix than replace. Can't say that I will be buying a Denon again.

SOURCE: Denon 2910 CD player malfunctions

By this time I figure most peoples warranties are expired. So give this a try:

1 Open the case.
2 Turn the unit on and load a disk.
3 On top of the disk transport, you will see a black disk trying to spin as it reads the disk. You might notice that it is a bit quite as the display goes to 00H00M00S. It should be fast and a bit noisy.
4 Try loading a disk again, except this time, try to help that little black disk spin. It might take a couple of attempts, but I was able to get my 2910 working again.

The last year I've had to do this 2-3 times. But it works. From what little I have read, it may just be an issue with lubricating the right part with the right oil. I've narrowed my choices to PTFE 3n1 oil, Lithium oil, or silicone oil.

now I just need to find the right places to oil.

There should be quite a bit of noise and speed

I have red,yellow& white come out my dvd and only white & red plug in on the back of my tv how do i make that work and which source and channel i put the tv on

Red and White are audio, yellow is video. On the back of the TV there should be a yellow jack if it takes external inputs. There are two ways to connect your Blu-ray Player to your amplifier. Via HDMI output: Connect the player's HDMI OUTPUT to the corresponding INPUT on your amplifier using an HDMI cable. If your amplifier has an HDMI OUTPUT, connect that to the HDMI INPUT on your TV using an HDMI cable. See if these links help.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,

Denon Dvd-2910 only displays black and white on the tv screen


this is not a serious problem. It just has to do with visual compatibility.

Change the DVD display to Pal or NTSC and set that of the TV to Auto or pal.

You might find the PAL/NTSC on the DVD remote, or on the button of the DVD. If it is not there, then Check display settings of the DVD.

As for the TV, Change to Auto or Pal from display settings.

Take care.

Can I connect this player to a hdtv?or do I need additional cables because it is only playing in black and white

Basically -yes; the picture quality may not be to your liking (there are ways to minimize this).
First let's get the units 'talking' to each other. There is no info showing re: the HDTV you're using, so I'll keep things generic.

Easiest: if both units have RF cable connectors (the old screw in cable TV types), hook 'em up with a short piece of cable, and make sure that the channels out & in match (they are ch. 3 or 4).

Next up: Look for RCA jacks for out & in on both units. The colors will be yellow, red & white. The yellow is video, the red & white are audio (lt. & rt. channels) Check the jack's labels to be sure. Fire up the player, and run the set up- Sources In on the TV, and follow the prompts to get both sources 'seeing' each other.

Better quality: Look for S Video connectors on both units (they will be round with 1 square & 3-6 round pins). If you have these & a cable, hook 'em up; you'll also have to do seperate audio connections too. With S video you'll have to check the TV's source menu, and go from there.

Best quality (short of HDMI): at the Video Output & Inputs of both units see if there are 3 RCA jacks (usually grouped & 1ea yellow, green & red (colors can vary due units ages)), match 'em up red->red, etc. this is important since this is how the colors will be displayed!! Now You also have to hook up your audio too. Again, fire up both units, with this type connection the TV may automatically detect the new input; otherwise let the units detect each other and go from there.

Out of the methods above, only the 'S' Video is a specialized cable; for the RCA type cables, regular Audio type cables will work. If there is a lot of RF interferance upgrading to better quality and shielded cables may be necessary.

I hope this helps out.

Hooking up Blu Ray player with HDMI to plasma TV (HDMI ready). Question has to do with audio. Normally would run HDMI cable from player to TV and use optical cable to receiver for audio. This is based on...

Run the HDMI to the receiver then from the receiver to the TV. There is no video loss when doing this and the TV can still do any type of fancy processing on the signal if you want it to.

This way you get the full audio experience and video.

Mistracking on dvd player


It turns out there is a problem using hdmi cables with integrated amplifiers Denon dvd players (the 1940 series) - the hdmi cable processes the visual signal before the audio signal. Therefore there is what appears to be a lip syncing problem because there is a short 'time delay' between the visual and audio signals. I would advise anyone to simply use an AV reciever as they incorporate time delay technology so the visual and audio signals are in perfect sync. Luckily, Richer Sounds, where I bought the intergrated amp gave me a full refund, no quibbles or hassle. I would like to add I am unsure if the problem lies with just the Denon 1940 hdmi dvd players and intergrated amps or ALL hdmi players. Also, I was trying to achieve a simple 2 speaker set up with the amp.

The forum on What Hi-Fi document this problem with much better clarity and technical explanation that my understanding of the problem. However, the lesson learned is, if you want any speaker set up with your dvd player, use a dedicated AV reciever.

Best Regards, Graeme Young.
