DENON CDR-W1500 DISPLAY READS "DIG. UNLOCK" WHEN IN OPTICAL INPUT

When selecting the input to be in "OPT" optical recording. The display reads "DIA. UNLOCK" and the "D" is always flashing. The manual said to check all connections for the optical inputs and they are good. The optical cable is known good because I tried it on another digiatl recorder unit and it works. I can record in analog mode ok. The record display does not recieve any signal on the display when tring to record using the optical inputs.

Hello gerrydav, What might be happenening is the refresh rate for your blu-ray is offsync for your preferred display. You should be able to change it by plugging it into another TV and playing around with the settings. If you have further problems please feel free to post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

SOURCE: No system configration display on AVR3300 since moving.

Make sure the two switches on the remote are all of the way to left most position before you try using the SYSTEM SETUP button - if the AVR is going into SETUP, the LCD display should be saying "SYSTEM SETUP". (I think that model does - most do).  also make sure that the Composite or S-Video on the TV's input 1 work from something else like a VCR, DVD player, ETC. rule out the TV and the cable first.

SOURCE: Can't record out from a digital input

It only passes the signal it see's. Digital for Digital and Analog for Analog. Try running a Standard analog RCA from your Cable box to the receiver then try and record. Hope this helps. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further.

SOURCE: Denon CDR-W1500 not recording

I had the exact problem and could not get any of the CR-Rs that I had to work. I looked up the code in the user's manual where it said the error means it's not a recordable audio CD and to refer to page 6. I looked at the front of the manual and saw that it mentions that the CD-Rs must be audio CD-R discs. I did some research online and found that there are in fact differences between CD-Rs that are just marked that and those marked as Audio or Music CD-Rs. I bought a set of CD-Rs that clearly had marked "Compact Disc Digital Audio Recordable" on the package. When I inserted this disc, I had no problems getting the recording to work. So, make sure the discs you use are clearly marked "Audio" or "Music". A computer burner won't know the difference, but your Denon recorder will.

Your original post said it was blank discs that didn't work.

Now it's ALL discs including pre-recorderd ones. THAT changes things considerably.

Is it audibly rotating the disc once it's loaded?

Aren't getting sound from Denon AVR 788 hooked up to PS3 via optical

Did it work through cable leads.?
Could be an output problem, could be an input problem at the PS3, could be a dicky lead.?

Rule out the 1st 2 by testing another piece of equipment through that lead or into the PS3.

If something else works through the PS3's optical input AND through that optical lead,
then it must be a problem with the optical output on the Denon.?

Vinyl recording turntable

The Denon will act just like a standard tape recorder. It should have an audio in, for recording. If that socket is connected to the audio out of a tape socket on your receiver, the Denon will pick up the signals that are sent to your receiver from whatever source. All you have to do is follow the instructions for recording on the Denon then. If you have lost the user manual for it, it's free on-line.

How do I set my receiver to read TV/CBL Dolby Digital. It is a AVR 789

The Dolby digital signal is outputted only through the Optical or Coaxial socket of the CBL box. you will have to get an optic fiber or coaxial cable depending which cable box you have and connect it to the digital input of the Denon receiver. The Denon's digital input are already assigned at the back. Eg: Optic input might be labeled CD so if you are connecting the CBL box to the optic input remember to select CD on the Denon to hear the cable sound, same goes with the coaxial input.

How do i hook up a PS3 through my denon avr1905?

ONCE YOU CONNECT THE OPTICAL CABLE AT THE DENON, YOU ALSO NEED TO CHECK THE AUDIO SETTING FOR THE INPUT USED AND MAKE SURE OPTICAL IS SELECTED AND LAST ONCE YOU SELECT THE SOURCE INPUT USED TO CONNECT THE PS3 TO THE DENON PRESS THE INPUT MODE BUTTON ON THE FRONT LEFT OF THE DENON UNTIL YOU SEE DISPLAYED THE WORD AUTO, THIS SHOULD GET YOU SOUND AS LOND AS THE PS3 IS OUTPUTING AUDIO OVER THE OPTICAL

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3

If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

Onkyo TX-DS939 optical selection problem help!

That coaxial, opt-1 and opt-2 are available only if they are not selected to some other channel. So you have to check if opt-2 is selected to Video-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,CD or DAT. Change that to Analog and then opt-2 is free to another device.

The message Dig.Unlock Means:
"There is an incomplete connection of the digital input jack during
digital input recording, or the input signal is not being input properly
due to some other factor."
