Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver
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.
