Hi, i had to originally set this up a few years ago, but have forgotten how. Using a combination of buttons on the front panel, you can choose a TV system the unit will be pluged up to. If the incorrect one is selected, then bothe the OSD menus as well as the on screen volume indicator bar jumps. Can you advise on the remedy?

I'm assuming you have a cable converter box (set-top box) that you have hooked to your receiver. Check the box volume using the cable company's remote control. These boxes frequently have variable audio output, and if you turn the volume down on the box you'll have the symptom you're describing. When you press the volume up or down buttons on the remote, you'll usually see a volume bar on the TV screen. As you raise the volume, there may be a point marked by an arrow, which is where you should set the volume. On some boxes, when you get to a certain level the words "best stereo" appear, and that's where to set it. If your box doesn't have some indication like this just leave the volume set 3/4 or full up. Then the volume on the receiver should function properly with the cable TV input.
ensure that you have the reciver connected to a display monitor e.g t.v. set, there you'l be able to make all the necessary ammendments.use the video out or use the HDMI out to connect to your t.v.
which speakers are using for the avr 142?
en order to help out here a few questions need to be asked? Is the CBL/SAT connection VIA HDMI? Some HDMI signals will not pass CC and or On-screen display (OSD) via certain video modes. If all is analog video, not a problem, if mixed with component and HDMI and analog, you may experience issues. Let me know your thoughts and the best of luck.
Could need to be reset. Try unplugging it for a couple of Min's. it may reset itself. If not send me a message and I'll check the service manual for the reset procedure on Monday when I go to that hell they call work.
Your 635 will not display the OSD screen through component. You must use either s-video or rca. It won't upconvert the screen menu this route.
I had one up until a week ago. There are two outputs on the back specifically for the OSD screen. I used a separate old 13" TV with s-video to do my setups. Hope this helps.
Put the receiver in stand by mode (amber light) and hold on the tone button for 8 seconds. This will reset the receiver. After it says reset, let go of the tone button and wait about 30 seconds. Then hit OSD and you should be good to go.
Try putting amp to zone 2 go to set up menu for "variable" volume adjust and turn down the volume with the remote control volume buttons or use the volume control on the amp,this should work,i had the same problem with a YAMAHA amp and this worked.
If you have checked thru the owners manual and could not find anything helpful for getting the OSD working again, you may want to try this reset procedure at the end of this post and then try to get the OSD working again. The owners manual should give instructions on how to activate the OSD.
This reset procedure will clear all the setting you have made, so make sure you know how to put those settings back in again before doing this.
If you do see the video from what ever video device you have connected to the unit (DVD player ect. ) but you don't see the OSD when you enter into any setup menu, then this reset procedure may help fix that problem.
If you are not seeing any video from the video device connected to the unit, then you may just have the wrong setting for the output from the video out to the TV. These Denon's are very complicated receivers (which you must know, since you own this receiver), and an improper setting can be causing the problems you have.
Befor eyou do this, go thru the settings menu and look for a OSD setting and see if it is turned off. If so, turn it on. If you can not find anything for the OSD try using the set up on the display of the Denon instead of the remote.
Here is the reset procedure:
With the unit turned off, hold down these two buttons at the same time:
Pure direct + Direct
while holding those buttons down, then press the power button to turn on the unit. Keep holding those buttons down for at least 3 seconds after turing the unit on and the display should flash at about 1 second intervals. then you can let off the two buttons and the unit is reset back to the same settings as when it was new. You now will need to put all of your custom settings back in to the way you need them.
