BLUE RAY PLAYER WON'T PLAY THROUGH HDMI PORT

I HAVE A MAGNIVOX BLUE RAY PLAYER MODEL # NB500MG9. WHEN I HOOK IT UP TROUGH THE HDMI PORT ON BOTH PLAYER AND TV IT WILL ONLY PLAY MOVIE FOR ABOUT TEN SECONDS, THEN IT GOES TO A BLACK SCREEN, THEN BACK TO THE MOVIE AND SO ON. IT IS ACTING LIKE I AM SWITCHING THE INPUT ON THE TV BUT I AM NOT. IF I HOOK IT UP WITH NORMAL AV CABLES IT WORKS FINE BUT THE PICTURE IS NO BETTER THAN A REGULAR DVD PLAYER

    I was able to watch about 2 movies before Christmas vacation. Now my TV says no signal from the HDMI ports. RCA cables play.

SOURCE: will not play Blue Ray DVD

I had the same problem. Try this. Contact Sharp and have them email you the firmware update. You will need to download it from the email and transfer it to the player via a flash drive. See if that works. I am about to return my Sharp Blu Ray player to Costco and go back to DVD. There seem to be a lot of problems with the technology. Even when movies start to play, they have freezes and it is sometimes hard to get the menu to show up

SOURCE: I put a regular dvd into my blu ray player but it

Assuming it will play regular DVD's I'd suggest you connect it by scart also and set your TV input to scart.

I don't think DVD's carry High Def. data, that being the case, your player may auto route the data via scart.

How do I hook-up a blue ray HDMI to my AKAI HDTV thru a digital cable box?


If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port on it then you'll not be able to use the player. Some players have hi def output jacks, but it isn't true HDMI so using a hi def cable would defeat the blu ray players resolution when viewing a blu ray disk.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

I'm not able to get my blue ray player to play on a second monitor. it plays fine without a second monitor.but when i plug trough the hdmi everything works on second monitor except the blue ray...


Video acceleration only works on the primary monitor.
If you want your blue-ray to play on your second monitor, you need to make it the primary display.

Blue ray is hooked up to tv with HDMI correctly but there is no sound when playing the DVD


Check the hdmi port on you tv. There are some tv's that have an HDMI port that say HDMI/DVI(its a port for an older Digital Video that required seperate cable for sound), if this is the case then you need to hook it up to a different HDMI port on the tv because that input does not carry sound(you will see red and white audio inputs next to it) or use the audio outputs(red and white) cables and plug them into the out put of DVD player to the audio inputs that correspond to that same HDMI input. If this helps please rate me I do not get paid in anyway. I like to help people and want to make sure this is helping.

Magnavox NB500MG9 BluRay Player


A Blu-ray player can play DVD or CD and still not play Blu-ray. It may play Blu-ray but not CD or DVD, or burned discs. This is all caused by the 'optical' a part that reads the disc in the machine. Your player will need service as a Blu-ray optic cannot just be 'dropped' into a player.

Is the hitachi 46W500 blue ray compatible


It doesn't have an HDMI port, only a DVI port. You'd have to get an HDMI-to-DVI cable to get a true "digital" signal on the screen, but you'd still have to do your audio with the RCA jacks because DVI is video only whereas HDMI is audio and video.

As far as Blu-ray compatible, yes and no. It's a high-def TV, so if you hook a Blu-Ray player up to it you'll be in good shape but the built-in DVD player will not read or play Blu-Ray movies.
