    A DVD player reads digital data from the disc and writes it out through SCART, Composite HD or HDMI. There should be no possibility of traditional "tracking" such as one might find with an old fashioned video player. Can you describe the symptom some other way? Is the image moving up or down the screen, or is it offset? Are there any peculiarities in the colours? Do you get strange blocks/bright coloured squares in the picture?

Hello!

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.

Hi matthewgk,

It's been a while since I have used my unit and it is not plugged in presently but this may work as I recall having a similar issue a couple of years ago. Try pressing the 'input mode' button on the main unit (or on the remote) to cycle through to AUTO rather than ANALOG. If you still have issues you could try cycling through the DVD remote menu (usually on screen) and selecting the input source type while AUTO is shown on the receiver.

Regards
Matt

How to reset my Denon DN-V210 DVD Player to factory default?


Hi Jason,
I have just bought this unit and have been using the menu recently. The only ways i can see to do it would be to either, (as you say) plug it into a HDTV, or navigate the menu blind and hope for the best. 
If you press SETUP on your remote once to get to the menu setup screen and then push the RIGHT navigation button 3 times this should take you to the system setup screen. Then push the DOWN navigation button 4 times and then push ENTER. At this point it asks you for a 4 digit password to reset the unit which is a factory preset, 5555, so type that in. This should then reset the DVD player to factory settings.
Hope it helps,
Nick

I just doesn't load/read CD's.


I had the same problems with my four year Denon DVD-3910 and the only solution to it was to replace the laser unit with a new one.

There are some repair service on EBay that offer new laser units for only about 50 € and are also willing to change the laser unit for an extra charge of just 30 €.

After this replacement your Denon DVD-3910 will work fine again.
