Denon Receiver 2808 - No video but Sound
Hi guys! Looks like we all paid too much for such a dud amp! I am having problems myself with my 2808. I've assigned HDMI 1 for my DVD (which is my Blu-ray - Samsung). My TV is a Samsung too. I bought this amp in 2008 and I am now just getting this intermittent problem.
I will be playing my movies on blu-ray and all if fine and then 3 weeks later I get Sound but no picture. I did the PCM option and I messed with all settings to rectify the issue but no success. The last time I fixed it was turning the amp on and off twice in a row (due to frustration and hammer in the garage) and it somehow kicked the video back on. But, now it's not doing it this time around (hammers still in garage).
So, I don't know. Usually this is going to be a trasistor or cap they say back in the day. The circuit is weak and something is failing maybe due to heat, but let me say this, this amp is rarely used. I only use it for blu-ray and in saying that maybe got 50 hours use in the 3 years - seriously. I take good care of my stuff, I even blow out the dust with a small compressor and make sure no moisture gets in. So, I too am lost for ideas, but I am smart enough to not run to a shop, this is just a sad waste of money.
I think I will go down and buy a cheap Yamaha from Best Buy (Canada where I am at) and just use the Denon for music, at least it will do that right!!
I am not sure if I will be back on this forum, as I am searching for solutions for this problem with No video but sound.
I've checked my cables though and maybe something I've noticed though, the picture actually did not come on directly ooops, maybe it's the darn player now!! I feel like a heal but the reason I may have not mentioned this was I took the Samsung blu-ray up to my other TV and it connected fine.
But, the issue has to be the HDMI 1 input is faulty, it's not loose and not the cable or tv it's the amp for sure.
We certainly live in an age where everything is suppose to be better but whoever said, "they don't make em' like they used to" is right on!
Good luck to all and God speed on fixing them! Yamaha here I come!
