Question about Denon DVD-3910 DVD Player

1 Answer

No Audio/Video output with DVDs

I have suddenly lost all video and all DVD audio output from my 3910 (I cannot even display the setup menu on video monitor). But I can output audio signals from CDs. I am using D-Link (v3) for the audio and RCA interconnects for the video, and all of the panel indicator lights show normal function. I've triple-checked the setup, and everything seems to be correct. The problem does not lie with my surround sound receiver or with my video monitor since I can produce audio and video from other sources. Why would I be able to get audio over D-Link from a CD but not from a DVD, and why no video from the player of any kind? I've used the player for a year with no issues--this showed up out of the blue.

Tf d Ihave a tf dvd7100 I am trying to hook it up to my tv to plac a movie cd

Before connecting the the DVD to your TV First of all you have to the audio out put of your for the do the following using the setup menu.

Press SETUP button of of the DVD player to show "setup" menu. Select the audio setup the select the digital out then change to OFF from SPIDF/RAW.

Here i have added a picture which shows how to hookup the dvd player to a TV. Its for the same model that you have .
to make the connection you need two codes
1. 3.5mm stereo to two RCA (for audio)
2. 3.5mm mono to single RCA(for video)
connect the first cord to inoptical/audio and second one to video output of the dvd player.
connect the cable which comes from the video out out of dvd to the video input (yellow) of your TV. then connect the cable which comes from the inoptical/audio of the dvd player to the audio input of the TV (red and white ).

You have to select the input of your TV by pressing the AV/ source selection on the remote of the TV. check where you made the connection on the tv AV 1 or AV 2. then select the corresponding input. hope you will get it worked.

Also Added the image of the cable that you need to make the connections.

Hello. I have my HK connected to a new Sony TV. I see the video pic but hear no sound. I've made sure the TV speakers are on. Not sure what the problem is. Thanks

Check the connections you have made between the tv and dvd player, whether you have connected the audio output of the dvd player to your tv.
if its ok the go the system setup of you dvd player and then go to the Audio setup.
In the audio setup select digital output and make it to PCM.
exit menu and test

How do I play DVD on the BlueRay player?

According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.

I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.


*Model Features:
* Full HD 1080p Video Playback
* Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi - 802.11n
* 7.1 Digital Audio Output
* Backwards Compatible (see below)

* Plays Blu-ray and DVDs, Audio CDs, MP3s and Jpegs
* Multi-Channel 7.1 Audio Output via HDMI
* Playback and Enjoy Media via back USB Input (JPEGs and MP3s)

* HDMI 1.3
* Component Video (YCrCB)
* Composite Video
* Stereo Audio
* Coaxial Audio
* Optical Digital Audio

I hope that helps somewhat.

Unable to properly connect the DVR with our specific A/V system. Request a current/new manual for this device (RCA DRC8030N) since we lost our original owner's manual. Would like to connect the TV with...

I do exactly what you are trying to do. I take the outputs from my cable box (3 cables: comp video, left audio, right audio and plug them into the 8030 respective input sockets (input 1 on the back). Then I have the output video cable going to the TV. I connect the 2 audio outputs on the recorder to my stereo input for both audio channels so that the audio comes out the stereo system speakers. I use the AUX input to the stereo system for this. If you are using the RF from the source, then I think the same output from the recorder setup should work for cabling. Make sure the 8030 has all the right inputs/outputs selected in the main menu setups.
I hope this helps.

Volume is too low.


good day, not so familiar with this model but try this.

1) try to check in your DVD remote controller if it does have a + and - buttons indicating volume , if does have this features press + button to increase the sound output

2) if remote commander doesn't have this features try accessing the " SETUP" menu. most probably there would be a button in your dvd remote indicating this button "SETUP"

3)once you've access the setup menu, there would be a dialogue box indicating ( Video setup, Audio Setup, display setup, parental lock) insome cases it will show you a display picture of all this menu

navigate the dialogue box and look for "audio setup" once you've access this part there would be options and controls where you can change the volume/audio settings .

I can hear cds and see video on my hp dvd 1040i multiformat dvd writer but I can not hear audio to the movie/dvds i have rented.

Sounds like you might have a setting that is incorrect for DVDs in the setup menu.

Grab your DVD player remote and press the SETUP button. Navigate to the audio menu. Make sure Spdif is turned off (unless you're using an optical cable for your sound), that the audio stream is set to PCM (standard for CDs) or RAW, and turn off any Dolby/Digital Dolby/Surround Sound/etc. Now play a disc.

There's also another way if your remote has an AUDIO button. While the DVD is playing, press the AUDIO button and you should see a small windo that pops up that will tell you what the audio is set to. Press the button and wait a couple of seconds between presses to see if the audio starts playing.

Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.

DVP642 DVD Player is only working in Audio mode

Mine does the same. Cannot get a picture using the Yellow RCA output. Use an S-video cable if you can - it should still work. If you get a black and white picture using the S-video output, go to MENU > VIDEO page and change the output from PyBywhateveritis to S-video and the color will come back. I only found out mine was broken when I needed to use the s-video cable for something else and tried switching to the Composite Video (RCA) to no avail no matter how many cables or TV inputs I tried.

Audio and video is not working in my dvd mplayer

sometimes on the remote itself there is a video button to change over to diffrent mode, but at least should hear audio because thats on a totally diffrent output. i would try using a diffrerent output on the dvd player such as svideo, what were u using before on the out, was it component or the standard video out such as yellow output, you will have to use process of elimination..
