When I play a dvd, the picture will start to fade in and out (flicker) and then eventually go to no picture at all . Only audio. I'm not planning to go to a Blue Ray player for a couple of years. Is it worth trying to get repaired?
Standard dvd players are pretty cheap. Hardly worth repairing. Under one hundred dollars in a lot of place and I have seen new ones on ebay for under fifty dollars after shipping. Your model sells for about 60 -115 on ebay used.

If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an
HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the
PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care
of the video side.
Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3
menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the
Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to
setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to
play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is
setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you
have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.
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.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT CABLES FOR THIS INSTALL, GREEN, RED, BLUE FOR COMPENENT VIDEO AND RED AND WHITE FOR AUDIO UNLESS USING THE OPTIACL OR COAXIAL, FROM THE DVD PLAYER TO THE AMP OR TV.
ON THE FRONT OF THE DVD PLAYER IS A HDMI BUTTON PRESS THIS BUTTON UNTILL OFF IS DISPLAYED AND YOU SHOULD HAVE PICTURE
