Question about Yamaha RX-V620 Receiver

1 Answer

Can't view picture, but can hear sound

I have S-video from TV to Receiver, and I've triple checked that the DVD is connected to the proper place, the switch on DVD player is set properly for my connection type and that the channel on TV is correct - I know because I hear sound from the DVD on TV speakers when it's on AV1. It's weird because I can hear the DVD no matter what channel the TV is on...?


I don't have my Yamaha remote anymore, so maybe there is a setting I have to change there?


Can I use my TV's (philips from same year as receiver) remote? Where do I find the code to program it to the Yamaha?


Thank you for any answers.

Re: Can't view picture, but can hear sound

Are you trying to record TV signal onto a DVD, or are you playing back? What make & model is your TV and DVD player/recorder?

My hdmi connection for dvd & cable have both stopped working. The receiver is flashing

Unless you've been pulling it in and out, it shouldn't go bad. I assume you've checked to be sure it's properly connected.
HDMI cables should cost less than $20. If you were talked into a $100 cable, you were taken advantage of.
HDMI has a function called HDCP. The TV source and TV have a conversation over it to make sure that only an approved device (your TV) is connected to the cable. This is for copyright protection reasons.
Have you recently connected a new source (cable box, DVD player, whatever)?
Your problem can be in the TV, the cable or the source.
Try substituting for each to determine what's failed.
If you have your TV now hooked-up with component, you may have discovered that there's little or no difference in the picture

RE: Denon AVR 3300 - I cannot get the system setup menu to display on Phillips P50PFP5332D tv screen? All connected components work and sound great, but I cannot see Denon's Setup menu on tv to a

I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv.
The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source.
Hope that helps!

We recently purchased an AVR 146 receiver and have attempted to connect our DVR satellite receiver, a DVD player/recorder and our Hitachi (non HD) TV, plus a surround sound system to it. The surround sound...


This is how the connection is suppose to be, DVR "OUT", to TV "IN" using the RCA plugs, then press AV on the TV. If this is how you connected it, then maybe there is something wrong with the video wire (Yellow).

As for the DVD, you need to connect an Audio wire separately because the component Red + Green + Blue wire only stands for video. Audio is Red and White, this must be connected for you to get sound from the DVD.

To connect the Audio for your DVD player, connect Red and White wire to Audio "OUT" of your DVD player, to "AUX" in of your AVR 146 receiver, then select AUX on your receiver and sound will come out from your DVD through the receiver.

I hope this is not complicated for you. This connection is simple, all you need is to understand the basics which is OUT and IN. If you want to watch DVD on your TV, this means the DVD will be good OUT to IN of the DVD. The same goes for audio.

If you don't understand, please let me know so that I can direct you further.

Good luck.

I have a Yamaha RXV-365 AV receiver. When I connect my Bluray dvd I only get the picture and no sound, I have an optical cable fitted into the back of the tv and placed it in theback of the reciever but...

You must connect from the Bluray both HDMI and SPDIF to the receiver, and turn TV volume down. TV does not send the sound
from HDMI inputs out digitally, only sound from TV channels.

No sound unless VIDEO signal is plugged into receiver

Connect the DVD player audio with digital coax into the digital audio connection as you described and the DVD video directly to the TV. Now switch the input mode on the receiver to DVD. Then switch the video output mode on the TV to correspond to the input you plugged into. Any source in 5.1 dolby digital or dts should now work properly and have picture too.

Unable to get surround in dvd mode but can hear thru tv speakers?

Is your DVD player hooked up to a surround sound receiver, or directly to your television?

HDMI connections

The three inputs will all carry picture and sound. You then will definitely picture out to the TV but sometimes, depending on the manufacturer, no audio because it is assumed the the AV receiver will handle all of the audio duties therefore no need for audio at the TV.

Lost picture on my AVR-2807

There is a video select button on the receiver. Press it and it toggles through all of the video sources. Keep pressing it until the display says video=source.

Best Way ti connect a Denon AVR-1602 Surround Sound system with a Bell Express View Satlite reciever and Plasma TV

lets see, 3100 has no digital out, so you need analog inputs for the audio. Best picture with the 3100, use S-video. Digital input for the DVD sound and S-video in for picture. OOPS....does your TV have a S-Video input ?. If not then you have to use the RCA standard video type connector, as this particular denon doesnt do up or down conversion to or from S-video to old style RCA.

Sorry for the late response.....Rob

PS.....the HD bell wont do you any good with this receiver nbecause it doesnt have component video inputs. Enjoy Bells' superior picture with regular TV . Its way better than cable. Rob

DVD should be connected to an input on your tv not the monitor out.
