After a couple of years of working fine, the front control buttons (play, fast forward, etc) do not work. Fortunately I can still use the remote for everything, but I was wondering if there was a way to reset the manual controls?
Re: Denon DVD 2200 front control buttons don't work
I have had the same problem. After disassembling and refitting the buttonpanels and it's connectors the problem was solved. Does not seem like a repair but in my case it still works for about two years now

I tried the above steps, but each time when restarting the DVD player, it said 'reset' and asked for the language to be selected again. Pressing the "Fast Forward Fast Rewind Fast Forward Up Down" sequence caused the player to lock up and require powering off at the wall.
I found on another web site that there are different initial sequences. Once I use the one for Region 2, it worked fine.
I found the instructions below on another web site, but it worked for me...
Make sure there is no disc in the player.
Turn on the player (you can use remote control or front panel, it doesn't matter)
Wait for "No Disc" message to appear on the TV screen.
Press the Repeat button on remote (plain, not A-B).
Press the correct sequence of buttons of remote according to the original region code of your player (it's on the sticker on the back panel of the player). FF = fast forward, FR = fast rewind.
Region 2 players: FF, FR, FF, UP, DOWN
Region 3 players: FF, PLAY, FR, UP, LEFT
Region 4 players: FR, PLAY, DOWN, DOWN, RIGHT
Region 5 players: FF, UP, DOWN, STOP, RIGHT
Region 6 players: LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, PLAY, LEFT
If you pressed the correct sequence, a small white number 0 will appear somewhere on the top right of the screen. The white number 0 of the same font and size as the "No Disc" message, so don't confuse with the red "not allowed" sign that would appear when you press a function that's not available.
Turn the player off and on again, then you can pop in a DVD of any region and watch immediately.
Sometimes when you unplug the set ffrom the wall power or a while 1-2 minutes, and then plug it back in the problem will resolve itself. The DVD may eject. If it does, check it for damage, warping or dirt. If this does not fix it- you probably should take it to a repair center.
Turn on the unit with no disc in the unit. The No Disc message should be visible Press the following keys in this sequence Repeat (not the A-B Repeat, just the plain Repeat) Fast rewind button (just below the Disc Menu button) Play button Down button Down button Right Button
The number 9 should now appear towards the left of the screen.
Open then close the disc draw
Turn off the unit and then on again. You should now be able to play DVDs from any region
Verify that the tray is empty/no disc in the player;
Shut down/off with the front panel On/Off button and not the standby;
Press and hold the Open/Close, Play and Skip Reverse (I<<) buttons;
Maintain pressing on the above buttons and Power-ON the player with the On/Off button, (again while still holding the above buttons till the "Denon 2910" disappears from the display);
pls wait till LOADING completes and the front panel would display 0:00:00;
Using the remote control, enter 7, 3, 1, 9, 4, 6, 2, & 8;
The Denon 2910 will go into standby mode. Soon as it is on standby, pls press the Standby button on the front panel;
Pls verify region free update by pressing the Stop and Skip Forward (>>I) buttons on the front panel. The display would show “Region_Ax” The x would be the former region number that the Denon 2910 is locked into;
Should it not work ouot as expected, pls redo all the above steps.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
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.
Just try to initialize THE plager again.
Without cd in the player switch on the power while pressing the Play, Open and Next Track button.
On the display it says " initialized" Ready.
