Denon 2910 CD player malfunctions

My CD's will not play on my Denon 2910 anymore. The DVD's have no problem and play fine (sounds and picture). However, when I enter a CD, the display indicates " loading" and then jumps to 00H00M00S. To the left of the time indiactor the word "progressive" is lit up in red.

I have no idea what th eproblem could be. Can anyone help?

I have the same problem with my Denon DVD-2900. The unit stops loading/reading next cd that i put immediately after finishing 1 cd. I have to repeatedly re-load the disc or switch off the unit for a while to make it play a disc again.

No problem with dvd and sacd discs though.

Denon dvd 2500 wont play movie

The Denon DVD-2500 will not play Blu Ray disks - DVD and CD only. Make sure you're using the proper disks.

The Denon DVD 2500BT however, WILL play Blu Ray disks.

Which do you have?

Progressive scan problem

You need to clean your laser lens my friend. If that does not help, I'm afraid then that your laser assembly is going bad and on its last leg. The first clue to this is that you stated that the Cd's work and the DVDs do not work properly. The laser, when it gets weak, starts to mess up on the Dvds first but the Cd's will soon follow. Good Luck

The video output doesn't appear to be working. I can play a dvd but all I get is the sound, no picture. when I select set up, again, no picture. how can I resolve this ?

double check to see if your cables are fully seated in their sockets, also if this still isn't helping try doing a manual check of the cables themselves your video cable might have gotten pinched and separated.

Denon Dvd-2910 only displays black and white on the tv screen


this is not a serious problem. It just has to do with visual compatibility.

Change the DVD display to Pal or NTSC and set that of the TV to Auto or pal.

You might find the PAL/NTSC on the DVD remote, or on the button of the DVD. If it is not there, then Check display settings of the DVD.

As for the TV, Change to Auto or Pal from display settings.

Take care.

Power is on door tray will not open with manual or

the possible problem of it is a defective mpeg board or the belt in tray to make it open if the motor have a supply to turn the motor the problem is the belt but if it has no supply from the mpeg to the motor the defect is on the mpeg board

Unlock Deno 2910


Initially, pls try:
  • Verify that the tray is empty/no disc in the player;
  • Shut down/off with the front panel On/Off button and not the standby;
  • Press and hold the Open/Close, Play and Skip Reverse (I<<) buttons;
  • Maintain pressing on the above buttons and Power-ON the player with the On/Off button, (again while still holding the above buttons till the "Denon 2910" disappears from the display);
  • pls wait till LOADING completes and the front panel would display 0:00:00;
  • Using the remote control, enter 7, 3, 1, 9, 4, 6, 2, & 8;
  • The Denon 2910 will go into standby mode. Soon as it is on standby, pls press the Standby button on the front panel;
  • Pls verify region free update by pressing the Stop and Skip Forward (>>I) buttons on the front panel. The display would show “Region_Ax” The x would be the former region number that the Denon 2910 is locked into;
  • Should it not work ouot as expected, pls redo all the above steps.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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

This is supposed to be common with all portable players, but only with certain discs. Are you getting this on all discs, or just on some? Good luck
