Question about LG DR197 DVD Player/HDD Recorder
I have a problem with a LG bd650 blu-ray dvd player i have a small "Render" Tv and it worked fine untill today... When I power it up, I see the LG logo and loading then nothing, no menu just the blue screen of the TV, it has a HDMI slot that i used and tryed with the 3, red, yellow, white cables. Power off and on but still nothing. It may be posible that somebody removed a USB memory stick while the movie was paused.

You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

First you need to update firmware to v3.886.01 THEN update to LG_BD_370M_UPG_LG_V7163 which can be found on the LG drivers section http://www.lg.com/uk/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=BD370&initialTab=documents

Pickled! You did right by checking the cables, the tv inputs and as well the output on the blue ray...even by replacing the blue ray. Which leads to a problem within the tv monitor. I can only guess there is something in the software of the tv that is causing the problem. I can only suggest two options. If can connect the tv to a network via CAT5 cable, you can do a frimware update to the tv. Sort of like a software update. If it is not available, try to swap the HDMI cable for the 5 RCA component video. It will still carry HD signal, just not as crisp as the HDMI. I would be floored if the same thing happened with the component cable.
