I'm not familiar with your unit. However, this is normal, since the "sub" is encoded separately in movies. I have a separate sub for my front speakers. Or if you know what you're doing you can redirect the front signal to your sub by using a switcher when you're listening to cds, then switch back to surround when watching movies. But again, you have to be experienced in the principle of A/V configuration.

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.

If DIGITAL sign blink, this mean DSP board is defective. It will cut the sound on the AMP section. DSp is maybe defective.

The sound goes on and of when watching a movie


see the cause and fix it: God bless you
  1. Check if the TV and Amplifier (if connected) is turned on and set correctly.
  2. Check if the TV, DVD player and Amplifier are connected properly.
  3. Make sure the TV, DVD player and Amplifier volume are not set to Mute.
  4. There will be no sound output during Reverse Play / Pause / Step / Slow / Search.
  5. If the DTS soundtrack is enabled in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc Menu.

While watching a bluray the player will lose sound and video will sometimes freeze. any suggestions


This is an indication that the Laser Pickup Assembly is the problem. Put a none blue ray dvd movie and let it play, if it plays through without a hitch it proves it is the Laser Pickup that has the issue. You see the blue ray disc requires more precision and velocity to show the higher resolution.

Insignia blu-ray player only plays music cd's. Ejects BD's.


Try to clean the player using a bluray cleaning kit. Dont use the dvd cleaning kit as a few can cause problems. Look at packages and see if they can be used on blu-ray players.

If this does not fix the player call Insignia immediately as the laser can be broke and will be expensive to fix. These players have a one year warrante so you should be covered

Insignia blu-ray player only plays music cd'


I would need to know which Insignia Blu Ray player you have to get a better idea of what potential problems you may be experiencing. Model number should be NS-XXXXXXX.

It sounds like the loader is failing, the lens is scratched/dirty, or the firmware isn't performing properly.

Recomendations:

Try using a Blu-Ray cleaning kit to clean the lens. Don't use a CD or DVD cleaner kit since these are too harsh for the Blu-Ray lens.

Try updating the firmware to the latest version by going to www.insigniaproducts.com and searching for your model number. Updates allow for more functionality of your player as well as greater compatibility with Blu-Ray discs and other disc formats.

Hope this helps!

Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine


Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.
