Question about Denon AVR-1803 Receiver

1 Answer

I need help in connecting my audio video system correctly once and for all.

I just moved my system to another area in my house so I disconnected all cables and labeled wires so I wont make any mistakes when I reconnect it. Well, I guess I did something wrong so the dvd player has no video and but it has sound. Anyway I just want to get it all right once and for all. Ok, I have a Philips wide screen plasma, JVC dvd player, sony dvd-video player, comcast cable box and 2 front and a center speaker. Right now the tv is playing via vcr1 6 ch. It used to play by tv/dbs, what happened?

    I have moved and am setting up my system from scratch. I have dvd sound but no picture from player. Got new surround sound speakers working. Ipod works. But, I can't get cable through the receiver or picture from dvd. My tv is a 50" Vizio. I have the dvd working through s-video and I have tried both s-video to the tv and r/w/y rca cables. My cable box only supports rca output.

The free phone call at gmail doesn't work

Google offers free calling online via its Google Voice service and your Gmail account.
As of the date of this publication, the free service only applies to calls made to phones within the United States.

Activating the service requires modifying your Gmail settings.
Once you've changed the settings to enable outbound voice calls to phones, you can make calls from Google's dialing system through the Gmail "Chat" area.

Set up a headset, or microphone and speakers, on your computer to use during the call.
Sign in to your Gmail account.

Click the gear-shaped icon at the top-right corner of the screen and select "Mail settings" from the drop-down menu.

Click the "Chat" tab to see the Chat options, then set up your voice chat features. Verify the audio settings in the "Voice and video chat" section, then click the circle to the left of "Enable outbound voice calling with Google Voice" and select your default country in the "Call Phones" area.

When finished, click the "Save Changes" button. Scroll down to the "Chat" area in your Gmail and click the "Call phone" option to open the "Call" window that features the dialer number keypad.

Check that the flag to the left of the phone number field in the "Call" window matches your country so that Google Voice dials using the correct country code.

If it isn't the correct flag, click the down arrow to the right of the flag and select the correct one. Enter the number of the phone you want to call, then click the "Call" button to dial the number.

When you're finished, click "End" to disconnect the call or wait for the other person to hang up; the system automatically disconnects shortly after.

How do I re-connect a VCR/DVD player to a Bravia? I have (!) video output and (1) audio output wire from the VCR unit and have tried a number of combinations without success connecting to the back of the...

The DVD/VCR player should have video (Y) plus right (R) and left (?) outputs that connect to corresponding inputs on the rear of the Bravia TV. You should be able to press the TV/VCR button on the remote to select that device as the input source.

Need directions on how to hook system up to tv


Check the back of the system, you will find Video out, then Audio out (left and right). Connect the yellow cord to video out, and the white & red to Audio out appropriately.

Then connect the other end of the yellow cord to "Video in" at the back of the TV, then the red and white to audio in at the back of the TV.

After connecting as directed above, turn on the TV, then turn on the system. On the TV remote control, press "AV" or "Source" depending on what is written on the remote and there should be a display. If there is no display, press the "AV" or "Source" on the remote once or twice more and there should be a display of the receiver's welcome screen on the TV. You might also need to press "Source" on the system's remote if there no display.

Let me know if you don't av display even after following the above steps. The above is the correct way of connecting so it should work.

Note; The White and Red cords stands for Audio left and right, while the yellow cord stands for Video. The yellow is suppose to allow your system display on the TV screen, while the Red and White is to bring out sound.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Get video but not audio.. may have cables connected improperly??

It's either cables not connected correctly, or the TV that you are connecting it to is muted or the audio source isn't correct (for example running thru an external audio system). Try connecting it to another TV in the house and if it works, then you'll know if it is or if it's not the DVD player itself. Also try a different audio cable. If it's RCA plugs (typically, the older style with Yellow, Red, and White colors on the connections), it's odd for them to fail, but not sure the connections you have.

System blowing fuses. Probably didn't connect it back up correctly. Need a wiring diagram or schematic.

If you refer to its manual it will show how to connect and how NOT to connect speakers. No other connection will cause fuses to blow. Disconnect the speakers as a start and see how that works out.

Need to look at recever from the back

Yeah - that's a tough one. We've all been there before - often more than just once, too. There's no easy way to do it - you're just going to have to "**** it up" and gently twist the unit to a point that you can stick your head in enough to actually see the connection panel. If there's room, shine a bright light into the area and use a mirror to assist making the connections or disconnections you need.

If the mirror method doesn't cut it - you'll have to move it. Once moved, make the disconnects and connections you needed to do and reconnect any connections that pulled out when turned. You might consider labeling the cables to match the name of the jack on the amp that they're connected to - to make it easier next time.

If you have to do the whole thing over and your amp is in an enclosed cabinet, you might want to remove the back panel. Use 4 to 6 strips of wood each about 3/4 to 1 inch square by 3 or 4 inches long and secure them with screws to the cabinet, then secure the back panel to these wood strips with screws. The purpose of this is to allow you to work on the amp interconnections with other components easily from the back. Cables that leave the cabinet need not be passed through holes, as there is an opening all the way around the back panel. This helps allow heat to escape very nicely. You can slide the cabinet out and remove a half dozen screws and get to the rear of the amp very easily any time you need this way.

Good luck!

When turned on, all lights are green but tv can't pick up the xbox 360 on any channel.

have u checked the setting on the video cable to make sure it's on the correct setting? It has tv--hdtv. If you moved it from one place to another and had to disconnect it and plug it back in, make sure all the connections are correct. Check your cable and make sure no pins are bent inside the cable housing.
