Our TV/DVD player was working fine since we bought it in March of this year. We use this unit to play DVD's continuously in our reception area. Last week we pulled out the DVD to put in another one and it stopped working. We have tried other DVD's and now it will not accept any of them. Is there something we can do to "jump start" it or does this need to go into the repair shop? If so please give me listing of the repair shops in the zip code 92111 area. thank you.

Cleaning DVDs that look like a DVD with a small brush on them will rarely work. After unplugging unit try opening unit and using a Qtip and rubbing alcohol try VERY GENTLY cleaning the optic on the player. If this does not work player will need to be replaced.
lens could be the last option to check, most common problem with portables is, the drive motor, try to change it then play it, still problem continues, then change the lens, it should solve your problem
found out that signals from both remotes were on same waveband
moved dvd player tp differnet tv in diferent room and bought new dvd player to couple with LG flat screen
Not a technical solution bit did the trick
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 you were using RCA cables, you may have had them hooked up wrong. I know this may sound like an easy fix, but I still hook them up wrong from time to time. Especially if there are more than one set of RCA hook-ups on the back of the unit. If you were using a S-video cable you shouldn't have to use RCA cables, if you had both hooked up that could cause your DVD/VCR unit to not work properly and only get a partial feed to the TV. I hope this helps a little. Good luck.
This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.
Wish I could. I have the 4600 combo and the VCR works fine. The DVD stopped working many months ago and just yesterday started working fine again. Worked fine for two days and then stopped, picture froze, and all I got out of it, is the picture is loading. Wont give me back my DVD nohow, so have opened the case and stole it back. Tray will not open at all. Trying some repairs, will holler if succesful
sounds like you need to clean the laser lens. Try using a disc cleaner first and if that dosent work then take aprt and find the laser lens, take a clean q-tip and put a little alcohol and swab the lens very carefully Good luck
