Question about Denon DVD-2910 DVD Player
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 Denon...no 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

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.

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.

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.

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
