The lights on the front panel of the Denon 3910 disappear after about 2 seconds and reappear when any button is pushed on the remote or dvd itself. The dvd appears to be playing but there is no output/ picture visible on the tv.

Re: No picture output
Have there been any changes to the systems configuration? Has there been an electrical outage or lightning strike in your area? If the answer to these are no then check the video connection to the tv ensuring both ends are secure in their ports.Ensure the tv is on the right input source for the type you are using. I know this may all seem trivial but sometimes the obvious is the easiest solution. I am assuming you have audio but no video. If you are still unable to make a picture on that tv try another one to isolate the fac t that it is the dvd player itself that is faulty.

Denon has for some reason removed this function from their user manuals. However The manual does show how to do a manual reset of the unit. This may correct the issue.
With the Amp OFF but plugged in, press and hold the speaker A and B buttons and while still holding them press the POWER button. Continue to hold the speaker buttons for another second or so. The display should all light up and flash at 1-second intervals. If not flashing, try again.
This should reset the unit back to factory state with the front panel lock disabled.
THERE ARE ONLY TWO WAYS THE TV SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO THE DENON,
1. MONITOR OUT OF THE DENON TO AN INPUT ON THE TV.
2. AUDIO OUT FROM THE TV TO AN INPUT ON THE DENON.
ALL YOU DEVICES CAN BE CONNECTED TO THE DENON IF #1 CONNECTION IS USED OR ALL DEVICES CONNECTED TO THE TV IF #2 IS USED
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.
You can try this reset method, if it doesn't work it will probably need service by a professional. Remeber that all setting will be lost, make sure you know them so you can put them back in after you are finished.
At the player stop condition, press 3 buttons for DVD operation (“PLAY”,”OPEN/CLOSE”, and “ SKIP”) until “INITIALIZE” appears and disappears in the display. (“Initialized” appears and disappears on the TV screen.) ******All user setting will be lost and its factory setting will be restored when this initialization is made. Be sure to memorize your setting for restoring again after the initialization
By now the person who asked this (eleanorr) has certainly solved her problem, but in case anyone else has this same question: It *is* on, as the color change on the Power button indicator light shows. Most likely, the receiver is fine; it's just that your front-panel display is off! 1. Check the DIMMER mode by pusing the buttom on the front panel -- it may be set to OFF. 2. Push the PURE DIRECT button on the front panel (or remote control)
-- it may be ON, which turns off almost all of the front-panel
display. (Alternately, change the AV source, which turns Pure Direct
Finally the problem was with the HDMI cable. When I pushed it in on the TV set the problem disappeared. It seems the connections must be quite firm on the HDMI cables otherwise anything may interfere to the sound.
