Not sure if you still need help but I will suggest a few things if you have not solved the problem or returned the unit.

Have you tried connecting it to one of the other HDMI inputs?
Have you also tried using the component video out from the Blu-Ray to one of the RCA inputs on the TV to see if the player is working at all? Is there another TV that you can connect it to, to test the player?
Without knowing the model of TV I am limited to solutions I can suggest. Try those and if you need more help, let me know.

Cheers

How do I hook up my blu ray to my floor model panasonic tv


You can use an HDMI cable if both your tv and Blu-ray player have that imput. That will give you the best picture and sound. Both video and audio are carried through the one cable. Next down in quality are Component cables. You may need to use these if your tv doesn't have an HDMI input. These 3 cables are red, blue and green. They will give you the picture but no sound. This is normal . All component cables need red and white composite cables for audio. When you have made your choice of HDMI or Component, click the input button on your tv remote and scroll down to either HDMI 2 or 3 or 4(if you used an HDMI cable) or choose "component" to allow the signal to come through. Make sure you at least have the blue-ray player on so that when you do see it on the screen, you'll know which input you chose to get it to come through. Remember, after watching your Blu-ray, remember to turn your input back to your cable setting so you can watch tv again

Can I hook my cable box into my Sharp Blu ray player


Curious why you would want to do this since both cable box and BluRay generate output signals. I doubt a single line pass-through would work since the last device on the link would override the signal with its own content when turned on.

If your TV or media system accepts multiple inputs, I would route each device to a separate input on the TV/MS and switch between them with a remote. I run HDMI lines out from both my cable box and BluRay box directly into the TV as two different lines and it works fine.

The HDM1 on the DVD player model DVP3962/37 has no signal. The player has been working for a year with no problem. We can only watch the DVD on component 1 which is not in color.


The HDMI should work hooked directly to tv through An HDMI input but if it doesn't, try either watching yourself or have someone watching while you twist and try to push all three(blue, green ,red) connectors into their in/out jacks. I feel composite gives you better picture anyway> the HDMI is just easier because it carries sound and audio. Anyway, one of your jacks is probably not in all the way>

I have hooked up my br to an onkyo home theater through hdmi. i now get an unusable signal on my flat screen. This also happens when I hook it up directly to the tv. What can I do to get this to work


hi,
The Blu-ray player outputs full HD VIDEO (1080p) through HDMI, if your tv is not a full HD one then you can't see the video. Do one thing connect the Blu-ray player to any full HD tv and go to it video setting. Down scale the video to 1080i. All HD ready tvs supports only resolution up to 1080i. only full HD tvs supports 1080p. Down scale the video to 1080i surely you will get video. Also check the version of HDMI cable you have used. It should be 1.2 or above.
ok

Hi,

I have few options for you to get the video back on HDMI:
1. Try out changing the video resolution on HDMI set up (select 480p..1080p).
2. Play NTSC disc (to get the 60Hz out from Player). If your are in US.
3. Select the TV system as AUTO/NTSC to get the 60Hz out only on HDMI.
4. if the Deep Color option is available in HDMI set up menu..set it to OFF.

Let me know if you tried all these and still no output.

I am not sure about the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player: But the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player requires HDMI cable
to give the best resolution (1080p) possible that the TV set is able
to support. Hope this helps.

Grainy Picture Denon 1740 DVD and Samsung 1080P LA40M81BD


Firstly, you should alter the picture settings on the TV. Most TVs have independant settings for tuner, scart and HDMI, so you may need to do this several times. Once for each.

Excessive contrast and/or sharpness on an LCD causes graininess, particularly around the edges of moving objects.

Check and adjust the following on the TV:
  • Contrast - about 65% max
  • Sharpness - 20%
These settings are a % of maximum, so you may need to work out a value if max is not 100.

Also turn off any contrast enhancements - (Contrast + / Digital
Contrast etc.) dependant on make.

I assume that you are using the upscaling facility of the Denon 1740 via an HDMI lead. If so, disconnect any other connections between the DVD and TV, particularly scart. If the scart is connected the TV will auto-switch to the scart input when you use the DVD, and you will not get the benefit of the high def connection.

This is probably obvious, but make sure the DVD is set to 1080p scaling, and you will need to manually select the HDMI input on the TV.
