    Hi,
    I just purchased a Denon 1920, and connected it with a scart lead, I'm now getting a hissing sound coming from the tv's speakers,
    I never had this problem with any other DVD player before. And I'm using the same Scart cable.

    If I connect my old DVD player, then the hissing goes away, but as soon as I reconnect the Denon, the hissing comes back.

    I have tried 3 different scart cables, that did not help.

    You can hear the hissing as soon as you switch on the dvd, A disc does not need to be inside to hear the hissing.
    The hissing is not very loud, but it is annoying, as you can hear it in quiet parts of the dvd.

    I have been in the sound options, but none of them have helped.

    Should I return the Denon

    Hi,

    Thanks for reply.

    They have given me a new one, but they did not check the old one out first.
    I hope that the new one will be ok.

    I'll post back after I have tested it.

    HI, Guys


    Ok, The second unit is just the same as the first unit, IE the hiss is back :thumbsdow

    Could the problem be that i'm using an crt tv and not an lcd tv?
    IE My TV is not digital??

    Any ideas?

    Thanks......

    Try a different cable. Do you get the hiss from other sources via scart?

    Yes it's probably the cable and i've had this before with other equipment. You need to snip the Audio pins 1 & 3 at the display end of the Scart cable. This should help or sort it out completely. If the cable is an expensive one you may feel uneasy about doing this, so it's upto you.

    In which case buy yourself a £2.99 job from B&Q and do what I say on that. At least it will isolate the problem for you.

    OR change the Scart Output setting on the TV so that it is different to the one you have plugged it into. This will help but may not eradicate completely.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.


    No, I don't get the hiss from any other sources. I have a DVD recorder on scart number 2, and an x-box on scart number 3.


    I've tried 3 different scart cables, they all give me the hiss.
    But as soon as I try my old DVD player, the hiss has gone.

    Could my problem be an analog/digital problem?

    Sorry I meant 1 & 3, are audio out. If you snip them on one end of the cable it stops the tv outputting audio back via the cable to the DVD player. You dont want this to happen for a DVD player anyway and it creates an unnecessary loop. The cross talk in the cable or the input at the DVD end usually creates this kind of hiss.

    If the problem is still there then sounds like the dvd player for sure but worth a go on a cheapy cable nonetheless.

    Make sure you plug the snipped end of the cable into the television. If you plug it into the source end you will obviously get no sound whatsoever.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply.

    Ok, I did as you said, I removed pin 1 & 3, and the hissing did go away, but I also lost the right hand channel.

    At least I know that the dvd player is ok now.

    I will be getting a LCD TV next month, so I can use the players digital outputs.
    So I wont get these scart problems after that.

    Why do I get this hiss problem with this player, and not with any of my old players?

    At the moment, i've packed away the Denon, and i'll use the old player until I get the new LCD screen.

    Thanks again for all the help

    Check that you haven't bent pin 2 on the cable in the process ? That is the Right Channel Audio in.

    Helps if it's cheap ! You got the idea now, so it isn't your player.

    Some of those cheap cables you can actually unscre the connector and prise it apart. Rather than snip the pins you can then simply snip the wire attached to the pin from behind. I prefer to do this as you don't bend any other pins with this method.
