Denon Receiver repair shop in Dallas?

I got this receiver from a friend, with it only having the issue of sometimes blanking out video, after some time of use. It has done this a couple times, and come back on, but the last time it went to snow and stayed that way. i had to let it sit for a while, and it came back to normal. Is there anywhere in DFW that anyone can recommend to fix this cideo issue with the receiver?

Have you tried contacting Denon and seeing if they have any authorized repair shops in the area? I would go that route myself with something that expensive.

This is going to sound crazy to some, but over the years, I've had rotten luck with the reliability/durability of Denon products.

I would weigh the potential cost vs. value of the receiver. Might be better off replacing the unit other than the fix and replace cost of a video board.

Everyone says Denon is God. However, I've never had an issue with any of my Onkyo receivers.

Especially since I can get an onkyo at cost!

You can 'reboot' the receiver. Try that, it will reset it to factory settings.

My Denon got into some funky mode where it wouldn't play through FL and FR speakers in stereo mode. There is some hot key combination that you hold down for a few seconds which 'reboots' the receiver and puts it back in factory default mode. I had to google to find it.

may be the hdmi cable after further research. many people have the same issue on the xbox 360 forums when running an hdmi cable longer than 10'.

it is an hdcp error aka handshake issue. i need to try to switch the two cat 5 cables over to cat63 on the hdmi extender, maybe add a repeater, or move the equipment next to the tv, opposed to the opposite side of the living room. i did hard reboot the receiver though. thanks andrew.

when using all the same connections and my new ps3 it only did it once, unlike the multiple times with the same dvd in the 360; and it was for a split second, not really long enough to complain, like the several seconds on the 360.

here is a thread about it:

Not to me. At work we seem to get more busted Denon shit then any other brand.

Product sheet (Denon AVR-2807) indicates that it is HDMI 1.1 Compliant and HDCP is supported.

Therefore, it is most likely the receiver is bad. Toss it and get an Onkyo.

I am keeping the receiver for audio, and getting an hdcp compliant hdmi switch on monoprice for $30.

I rather upgrade to an led tv before the receiver

I have had more trouble with one of my Integra's(Onkyo higher end line) then I have my Denon. Can't go wrong with either one though.
