I have a new Blu Ray and wanted to connect it via a HDMI cable. I have placed the cable correctly and set the TV setting to 7 and the screen is just black. I tried other HDMI devices and none work. I do not think it is the cable. Any suggestions would be cool.
I dont have a TV with HMDI input but i do have a computer moniter. To change i have to press a button that changes from VGA to HDMI. My computer supports HDMI and when i tried it, it works. Try looking in your manual for a way to switch input methods.

Just reset the TV to its factory settings and check. To do this you have to enter its service mode option. How to enter the service mode option is described in one among the posts at the site linked here.
But, before doing this reset, just connect the HDMI cable to the TV, and input an HDMI signal to it. If there is no input signal, the set will display as 'no input'. Check this first. If you wish to get further assistance from me, come over by FiXya comment.

Have you tried changing the output video settings of the Blueray player from NTSC to PAL or vice versa? Also check that Blueray has HDCP turned on or off, depending on your TV set.
What's the make and the model of the TV?
Based on what you're saying it can only be a few things. Trying putting the HDMI cable into a different port on the tv and change input. Try changing the HDMI cable. If that doesn't work, change over to component cables, change TV input again and see if that works.
you need to use red blue and green component cable to connect this to a hi definition player. hdmi to analogue is not possible without expensive circuitry as well i know you can buy hdmi to phono leads but they will not work for this kind of application. what outputs does the blue ray player have?
The HDMI reciever board in the TV is bad and will need to be replaced. You should have a technician look at it so they can get the correct part number using the model number and the TV's serial number too.
The instructions are as follows:
1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used. 2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable. 3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.
Once reset, you'll connect your RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow) and set up the PS3 display settings. To get there from the XMB bar, go to Settings > Display Settings. You might have to disconnect the HDMI cable from the PS3 before the RCA cables work. I don't remember entirely.
Select Video Output Settings > HDMI > Automatic. If you can see the prompt about a max resoultion of 1080i (with your HDMI cable plugged in) you should be good. Select Yes and press X to continue. You can set up the audio but it's not necessary. Select Finish and you should be good.
I've just recently connected my old 32" Sony KV-32HS510 to my HP G60 Laptop via an HDMI (laptop) to DVI HDTV port(TV) with a cable.
I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop with the nVidia software. Once I've plugged in the TV to the HDMI port, the software initializes (recognizes the TV) and then I can select it as my second 'monitor' in the nVidia control panel.
I found I had to tinker with the resolution settings in the nVidia program to find an optimal resolution where the sides of the screen weren't 'cut off' by the TV.. I finally ended up with the resolution 1152x768 (I believe). It might be different for everybody, as I'm told Vista might do things differently than XP... But you should be able to tinker with the resolution settings and adjust the screen size...
