Question about Denon AVR-1803 Receiver

DVD Audio Output Stops

This weekend while watching movies through the DVD player, the audio stopped. Video was fine, no sound. So, I switched the audio out from the DVD player and from the "DVD Audio In" to the "CD Audio In", and switched the input selector on the receiver via the remote. Everything was back to normal working fine. In the morning, I switched the connections back to the "DVD Input In" and it worked fine for about 30 minutes (a much shorter time than before) until it stopped. I switched the audio cables back to the "CD Audio In" again and it is working fine.

Is this a heat problem?

Is it correctable?

Will it always do it now?

Should I send it for service, or cycle through the CD and Phono audio inputs first until they all die then send it in?

Am I losing any features/quality by using the CD or Phono audio in channels?

Thanks so much!

Re: DVD Audio Output Stops

Hey Kelby,

I've had a similar experience where a DVD movie would be playing and suddenly my Denon would just shut off, I later discovered that my rear speaker cables were not correctly installed in the back so the reciever recognized it as a short and would just shut down. Just make sure your rear speaker cables are correctly installed (right to right and left to left and with correct positive/negative placement) and see if it still does it. If it's still happening, then I wouldn't know what it is. Good luck.

Tv screen turns black and red when playing through pioneer receiver

Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.

But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.

try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.

I hope this helps.

I hooked up our Onkyo TX-SR607 system a few weeks ago and have watched several movies, but now I cannot get the Hitahci PH35811 TV to sync up to get video. I get audio, but no picture when we try to watch...

Are you routing the video into your reciver from the dvd player? If so route the video directly into your tv. It won't fix the initial problem but you will get picture and sound to watch dvd movies.

TV has no picture but has sound

Did you say you went in to DVR set-up and checked the component out audio option? I have had similiar problems with motorola dvr boxes and once I was able to enable audio output option the dvr digital output was fine. Find the manual for the model dvd and this may cure.

DVD movies do not play

A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.

Audio problem when connecting to a PS3

It seems the Denon and PS3 don't play nice together on DTS. If you take off the DTS setting, then the PS3 will use DD and you'll get surround for games and movies.

Does not decode Dolby Digital 5.1 from my cable box

If you have an HDMI cable plugged into the cable box it may only output 2.0 on the digital audio output. Set the HDMI audio to off or 2.0 and then set the cable digital out to Dolby.
