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 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

    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

My Denon dvd-2910 does not play 5.1. It is connected to Denon AVR-3805. It plays just stereo. The center, back channels and subwoofer don't give any sound


Your Denon DVD-2910 produces left and right audio output. Your Denon AVR-3805 generates 5.1 channel output; therefore, 5.1 channel output may not have been selected or the AVR-3805 may be defective.

Trying to connect HP M9060N and Sharp Aquos through Denon AVR 1508, only get 'no signal' response. Have HDMI 1 set to DVD, HDMI 2 to AUX, HDMI 3 to TV, which is order of HDMI outlets on receiver.


Depending on your TV inputs, you are better off to run video componenets through TV first then, connect TV to reciever via digital optical. Recievers have video pass through but, noyt the best route. You can use TV's menu to choose what you watch and, only have the one output from TV to reciever. Make sure you scan through TV and reciever menus to make sure you are selecting the right channel.

Can you tell me what are the functions of the two hdmi inputs, and the one hdmi output ,as my cable only works via the tv to the dvd player and a coax from dvd to the coax on avr, so hdmi on avr is...


Let's treat this as TWO functions - audio and video.

Your best video would be HDMI output (audio & video) from the cable box and EACH other video source (BD/DVD) directly to your TV and receiver. But, I'd still WATCH the video from the direct TV connection. The fewer intervening cables and electronics, the better.

Your best audio performance will come directly from each multichannel source via a digital (HDMI, coaxial or optical) cable to the receiver. I would LISTEN to audio through the receiver for best quality.

See a trend here? TV's best at video; receiver is the master of audio.
And neither one adds much by handling the other. Usually the opposite.

You mention coax. Do you mean coaxial digital audio????? As coax is also shorthand for the thick black cable bringing video to most cable boxes, connecting antennae to TV's and such.

You don't actually define what the problem is. Only YOU can be the judge of what 'better' is.

There are a multitude of (mis)settings you should master before declaring a hardware problem. I'd dive into the manual.

Connect denon 1709 to my tv


I will assume that your TV is an HDTV capable unit. Since I also would assume that the Denon AV1709 is properly setup in your listening room/Home Theater. You will need to purchase one HDMI cable from the Denon to the TV input. This cable must be long enough to go from the Denon to the TV with length to spare. The more money spent on a better quality HDMI cable will pay dividends on how much better the screen will appear. On the back of the Denon is an HDMI output labeled "Monitor Out" that the new cable will go into, and the other end of the cable will go into the TV input labeled HDMI. On the remote I would search for a button labeled "Input" or "Source" and on the screen I would look for the input that would reflect the same input you put the HDMI cable into in the TV. If your TV doesn't have HDMI inputs see if it does have "Component input" on the back The information will be similar but will reflect the different Input and Outputs you may need to use. The cables will be more complicated but they are color coded just for you. Red goes to Red, Blue goes to Blue, Green Goes to Green. Enjoy Re-Post if you need further information.

I have a Denon AVR-3808CI A/V receiver, a Samsung HL67A750 DLP TV, a Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player, and a Motorola HDPVR for the cable signal. I have connected the Blu-ray player and HDPVR to the Denon...


You will have to disable one or the other. Most likely the source because not all disk"s will be recorded the same. If a disk was transfered from film to digital poorly, this will show up as a grainy look on your tv, not much you can do about that. I would set your tv the best possible and go with that, also if your tv is capable of 24fps use that setting.tweaktv.com can help you with your tv setting. Use Progressive Mode on you blueray and your dvd also.

Denon AVR-488 , problems routing cable box through receiver to tv


If you don't have one, the manual is available online: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/AVR-488-OM-E_101.pdf

Suggestions:

1. Reset to default values. Per page 36 of manual: 1. Turn off Power. 2. Press Power while simultaneously pressing Speaker A and Speaker B. 3. Once the display starts flashing at intervals of about 1 second, release the two buttons.

2. Make sure you have AM or FM radio reception. This makes sure your speakers, amps, etc are connected and working correctly.

3. Connect DVD player to HDMI 1 in and TV to HDMI Monitor Out.
Play a known good DVD that works when you connected the DVD directly to the TV via HDMI.

Select the DVD/HDP input on the receiver and play the DVD. You should not have to perform any input assignments, etc. It should just work, as HDMI1 is the default system setting for DVD.

4. If possible, obtain a STB with HDMI out & repeat step 3 using the HDMI2 TV/CBL input. Keeping the signal path all digital (HDMI) will give you a better picture quality than forcing several analog to digital conversions (component video is analog).

4A. To use the component connection, first test by connecting the STB directly to the TV via component video/audio if possible. This tests that the component video output of the STB is working correctly.

Next, remove direct connection and connect via receiver. Connect STB to receiver as shown on page 13 in manual. Connect component video output from STB to component video input #2 (tv/cbl) on receiver. Connect the STB audio output to the corresponding tv/cbl audio inputs.

Make sure nothing is connected to the HDMI2 input or to any other TV/CBL inputs (composite video, s-video, digital coax audio).

Now select the TV/CBL input and turn on the STB. You should have both audio & video.

No Video from Denon AVR-588


It cant up-convert component to hdmi. Input and output has to be the same. However, you wont lose anything cuz hdmi and component are comparable
