Guess I am out of luck. Doing a reset is not clearing up whatever happened when the update failed. Still have not heard back from Marantz support. Looks like it is time to look for a new receiver.
Would love to be able to do that.
Tried 2 other hdmi TVs I have with no luck. Also tried connecting the analog monitor out to an old Sony Trinitron I have with no luck. At least there was no indication it was receiving the analog video signal.
Still no response from Marantz tech support. Was hoping to hear something today, especially after sending them a follow-up this morning. Have to give them a call I guess.
Don't understand what has or how this has happened. Was the receiver on the verge of failing and the failed update pushed it over the edge? What exactly is the DSP? Would that affect the video since the update apparently failed at the point of updating the DSP.
Sorry for the rant. Just very disappointed since I really liked this receiver.
The analog video out would only work with an analog video input. If you have tried multiple resets with no joy, the unit will likely have to go in for repair. Check Marantz's website for the closest authorized repair facility and give them a call.
Got response from Marantz about my no video problem and thought I would share it.
"Your issue is an odd one and it seems that the firmware lockup may have caused it, but an authorized service tech would have to verify that by checking the HDMI board. I would suggest trying a master reset (different from the microprocessor reset in the manual) and see if it clears any logic issue that the HDMI board may be experiencing. To perform this reset use the Zone 2 Source and M-DAX buttons on the front panel while powering on the receiver. (same procedure as the microprocessor reset)
If that doesn't correct it, then the 5007's HDMI board will need to be evaluated by an authorized service facility."
If the microprocessor reset does not clear a problem, then the Master Reset described above may do the trick. I have not had a chance to try it yet but think it is good to know about.
Regards to all.
UPDATE: Master Reset did not solve my HDMI board issue but it may help with some other problem. Regards.
Gonna have to figure this one out
Also tried unplugging power to receiver, no change either.
Could do a reset but don't want to have to completely set up receiver again. I'm assuming that this would have to be done
If you have a computer on the network, you can use the receiver's Web interface to save its settings to a file on the computer, and later restore them. See page 94 of the 5007's owner's manual. Before depending on it, though, you should use a hex editor (or something comparable) to examine the saved values to make sure they aren't all 0s. Sometimes the Save glitches. Saves and Restores aren't very fast. They typically take 10 minutes or so.

I'm starting to think latest update has an issue.
Following the suggestion to replace all HDMI cables I did. Ordered 4 new exactly the same cables from Amazon. Amazon Basic 6.5 Ft with Ethernet.
Swapped them out. WOW!! I must have had a bad cable somewhere because the picture quality increased significantly and have not had the black screen issue since. it was to the point of happening every morning when turning it on.
So moral of the story, check your cables. I somehow was using an old HDMI cable I didn't think was being used as the OUT to my LED Panel.
I am willing to bet this was my problem but spend the 19.98 for 4 new cables from Amazon. Its worth it and will likely fix your issues.
Hi I bought my 5007 recently because the adcom pre amplifier i was using blew a fuse and due to the fact that some of the solder had come off the join from the output for the tv only the audio part of it was working and I couldn't get to the menus to re adjust the volume levels for the power amps i have hooked up lol and when one of them is 50wrms and the front is 200rms this can be a problem lol so i had to grab something quick-it wasn't worth repairing the adcom since it only was a component video unit and the marantz came up at a price i could afford-anyway how good are the rear channels on these things are they really 100rms?
So what do you guys normally do when the lip sync etc on your picture is slightly behind the audio output-how can you co-ordinate the two- I have a 3 month old samsung led tv going straight from the hdmi input on the 5007 into the tv but now what? I've had a look at the cd rom manual but it hasn't been much help any suggestions?
If the audio is ahead of the video, the Audio Delay setting can be used, otherwise if it is behind, you may want to try connecting an optical cable from the device and use that input instead.
Sorry to keep bothering you- thank you for all your help jdsmoothie - I would be in a bit of a mess without the help you have given me- one other thing- does the Audessy setup still work if you have an external power amplifier connected to the front speakers-will it still do its measurements and also does it put the same processed information through the pre amp outputs?
Yes, it will do the EQ regardless of whether using the on board amps or external amps, and in fact because of the different gain structure, you'll definitely want to run Audyssey again after connecting the external amp.
Hi guys This is my lounge room here and I'm trying to sort out problems with where ive got speakers etc
placed- as you can see ive only got so much room but any advice on setup or feedback on what you would do if it was you setting it up would be appreciated. The front speakers are probably a bit big for the room but they came from another house so you have to work with what you've got-i put them about 80cm out from the back wall which seems to help them breathe a bit (they have the bass reflex ports on the back) but any ideas you guys have i'd be keen to hear
If the FL/FR speakers can be moved forward about another foot they would be better placed. Can't see the center speaker but as it is likely on a lower shelf below the TV, the coffee table is likely causing interference, so at the very least ensure the speaker is angled up towards your ear height. Also the side surrounds should more ideally be placed on 3'-4' stands so the tweeters are positioned about 2'-3' above your head.
Thanks again you've been a great help I'll get hold of some speaker stands and yea the centre channel is in under the tv like you said but i havn't tilted that up -that ones an easy fix :-)
I havn't run audyssey again yet but even by tilting that centre channel speaker slightly it dramatically improved the depth and with of the whole soundstage I was amazed I guess I hadden't seen dolby digitals full front soundstage set up really well-and havn't finished tweaking it yet! I havn't had time today to move my front speakers a foot like you suggested but I will give it a go-they are on floor spikes too which I think helps a bit but im keen to see how it all works out and I'll run Audyssey before i fire anything up. Thanks again and I'll put up on here how it all turns out you've been a great help.
It's not really worth fitting the two extra side speakers in a weirdly shaped room-it backs onto a dining room/kitchen(its not that big too) with an open wall like iv"e shown
is it? I thought it would be overkill in a room this size but again your opinion would be appreciated
I ran the audyssey setup again today moving the speakers forward about a foot like you suggested It did make the mids a bit cleaner so thanks for that and now that ive made the change you suggested about tilting the centre speaker up and it really did make it sound quite a bit clearer and defined in the whole front soundstage too - I was watching skyfall the james bond movie on blue ray to try it out-great soundtrack on that one it really showed how much it had been improved- You really have helped me to fine tune the new setup i have I really appreciate your help
