I have my HDMI DVD hooked up to the receiver and it has been working for several months. Now, the receiver does not recognize the DVD by reporting NO SIGNAL. I check the digital inputs assignment and checked for loose cords. Any ideas. I even checked my DVD to make sure it is set up for HDMI. I worry my cats may have touched something on the front of the receiver. Also the receiver recognizes the satellite, tv, etc. Please help.

Re: DVD no signal HDMI
Loose or crack or cold solder joint holding the socket of HDMI.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small
holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the
other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked
or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected
(hanging by a thread). When the TV turns on heat would be generated which would
be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer
provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to
re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.
Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly
probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is
possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections"
except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to
the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold
Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced
buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in
addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....If this solution help you understand the problem :rate as fixya..

Hi S MArr
There are several input HDMI connectors and most often only one out put ---connector. Make sure you have connected your output HDMI to the TV/Projector and the DVD to one of the inputs and chose that input on your AV receiver ! Do not forget to turn on the DVD too. and give the Receiver and the TV some time to recognize and setup themselves to the signal.
Thanks for clarifying that for me. The simple answer is the Denon home theater isn't able to convert the signal from your Bell receiver into an HDMI compatible format. You'll need to use either S-Video or the regular yellow cable to connect your Home theater to the television. The HDMI out provided would only work for the internal DVD player. This is a limitation of HDMI, not a problem with your home theater. You need HDMI in (or DVI in) to get HDMI out.
My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
I had the same problem and I managed to solve it. It was because the HDMI was set to 1080i and my TV isn't HD. Default HDMI is 480p. You can check your current HDMI setting on the front panel of your DVD. There should be a button with the words "HDMI select". Next to it there should be 3 values. If the current one (a green light shows which one is selected) is not 480p, change it. To change it, make sure your sd-5000 is on, but not reading a DVD. The press the "HDMI select" button on the front panel until the selected one is 480p. This worked for me.
(I had the same same problem without the reading slowly part. On one TV, the sound and video weren't working, and only the video wasn't working on another TV)
