Question about Sylvania NB500SL9 Blu-Ray Player
I just hooked up my new Sylvania NB500SL9 Blu-ray Disc Player to my Samsung PN50A550S1F plasma TV. Connection seemed easy enough...just the HDMI cable and the power cord. But when I turn on the player and insert a disc (standard DVD disc 'cause I haven't bought a blu-ray disc yet), there is no picture and no sound. The TV continues playing, and the screen on the blu-ray player shows the counter moving as though the disc is playing but, again, there is no picture or sound other than the TV program). The Quick Start Guide that came with the player includes a step where I'm supposed to "Press (HDMI) to change the resolution of the video signal being output from HDMI OUT jack" at which time I'm supposed to be able tomake a selection from 480p to 1080p24, but when I press the HDMI button (on the remote) nothing appears on the screen of either the player or the TV. I'm 60 years old, have very little technical knowledge about these things, so any help you could give me in layman's terms would be appreciated. Thanks!
Yes, here are the layman's terms:
OK...congrats for making it to 60, my mother is 84 and won't give up her webtv. Also congrats for refusing to let technolgy intimidate you.
1...you said: "there is no picture and no sound" My response: On your remote look for a button that says: "SOURCE" Press the source key (or button). Now cycle through your video inputs until you see the blue ray movie.
2...you said: "there is no picture or sound other than the TV program." My response: see #1.

My response: ^disregard this for now.^
4...you should be able to do whatever you can do from the tv menu as u can do with the remote.
Thank you for using fixya.com Are there any other questions on this matter?

It will not support the normal standard disc .only the blue ray disk r or the blue ray disc rw will be suppoeted.or to use the different disc the disc needs to be finalised to make it work on the player.

Try switching the TV input using the button on the TV remote untill you get picture from the DVD player displayed on TV.
Select a different HDMI input at the back of TV.
Always disconnect or connect HDMI cables with devices off.
