video randomly cuts out on Denon AVR-1712

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a new denon avr-1712 receiver. I have my appletv2 and ps3 hooked up via hdmi to my tv. Using all HDMI. I notice that my tv would randomly cut out at times leaving a blank screen and then come back 1-2 seconds later. This happens randomly. I'm not sure what the problem is. Could it be my HDMI cables are old or incompatible? I am using Belkin HDMI cables. This problem doesn't happen when my TV is directly connected via HDMI to my ps3 or appletv. I don't know if I should return my receiver for another one. Perhaps a bad unit?

Anyone else experience this blank screen issue with their denon receivers?

Seeing as quality HDMI HI Speed cables can be purchased from forum sponsor Monoprice for about $5/each, you might want to try replacing the cables first. Next would be resetting the microprocessor, and finally if still no joy, replacing the AVR.

For more information on your new 1712, join us in the Denon XX12 Owner's thread linked in my sig. You could also try the HDMI reset procedure listed in post #3 of the XX12 Owner's thread linked in my sig.

I will try replacing the HDMI cables 1st to see if that fixes it. Hopefully that could be the problem.

You are not alone. Another one here. Signal periodically cuts out for a short time. Occurs on the hd player and also the hd TWT cable box. Replaced cables with WireLogic 9 Foot Sapphire gold plated high speed HDMI Cables. Have reset 1712. Exchanged cable box. Problem persists. How is Denon at addressing issues on the AVR's (this is my first Denon since an MD in the 90's and do like it)?
Thanks, David

The cable box issue is quite common with all brands of AVRs and can be resolved by bypassing the AVR. If the HD player has a "Deep Color Output" setting, then set it to OFF.

Thanks JD,
The Samsung BD-D5500 does have a deep color setting - will check that tonight. In theory the 1712 supports it over high speed cables and doesn't look like it can be switched off there... With only the BD player connected to the AVR, was able to recreate the problem. Ditto with just the the SA 4250HD cable box (adjusts resolution to broadcast, not locked on 1080). Don't think the SA 4250HD has a setting for deep color. Can't really bypass the AVR - TV has only one HDMI in and the sound on it sucks... Could try composite cable to the AVR though for the SA box.

You would bypass the AVR for video only ... in your case having to use an HDMI switch and then also connect an optical cable from the cable box to the AVR for surround audio. As you suggest, you could also connect a component and optical cable from the cable box to the AVR as well although doing so you would lose the ability to pass the cable box video/audio through to the TV when the AVR is in Standby (which is why most prefer going the HDMI to TV/optical to AVR route).

Maybe tied into the auto-lipsync. Turned that off and had not had a video drop in days...

Is the Auto-lipsync on the AVR or TV?
