composite video signal (what Marantz calls "video", aka "yellow RCA jack") from some turned on video device you know is functional.
Wait, strike all that, if I am reading the chart correctly (and it is perplexing at first, but I think I get it now) menus are not offered with or without signal to the composite video out under ANY circumstances.
I happen to discuss an undocumented, trick way to get at least a black and white menu out of the AV7005 in "composite" form, I'm pretty sure earlier in this same thread, are you trying to use my trick
method? It sounds to me from this that you are:
When that didn't work I tried the convert feature to use just one of the component outs (green) with the composite cable. That worked a couple of days ago, but I haven't been able to get it to work since.
Did you change the master input, by chance? Keep in mind that if you turned on "Video Convert" on some input other than the one you are currently using that it may not be set to "on" on the present one. It, like most things on this unit, is a per
input selection. Check to be sure it is "on".
Check all that and report back.
P.S. Again, trying to get a menu from a dead input is the hardest. Do you have an active component video device? That should be easier, again see the chart on p 108.
