Screen flicker when selecting Blu-Ray player w/ HDMI-1 selected.
Setup the player (Phillips BDP7200). Went thru the Player setup menu and selected mostly "Auto" for most settings. The screen flickers when there is no disc in the player and when viewing a DVD. When viewing a Blu-Ray disc, it stops flickering. I'm using a Mitsubishi 60" DLP. I've selected HDMI-1 input. TV recognizes the input and prompts me to select the type of device connected to HDMI-1. I select Blu-Ray and exit with no problem. I have canceled out the player being bad by using it at my cousins house. The problem does not duplicate when using HDMI-2 on the Mitsubishi.
Re: Screen flicker when selecting Blu-Ray player w/...
Something to remember is that most HDMI setups on TV's have what is called a DVI/HDMI port, I would suggest not using anything on that port that isnot converted from DVI to HDMI. I bet if you look, that HDMI 1 on yours....

How To Reset Your Blu-ray Player To Factory Defaults (BD-C & BD-D Models)
Page 1. Reset Your Blu-ray
Power on your Blu-ray player and tune your TV to the input where the Blu-ray player is connected. For example, if the Blu-ray player is connected to HDMI 1 press the TV input/source/line button to tune your TV to HDMI 1.
Remove any disc from the player and then press and hold the Stop button on the front of the player, not the remote, for about 8 seconds or until the front display reads 'SETUP'. 'Resetting all settings to default values...' is displayed on your TV screen as the Blu-ray player powers off and resets.
The Blu-ray player is automatically powered on after the reset and the select Language screen is displayed.
The set should in owner manual have detailed instructions with diagrams etc.
Basic is from player outputs (whichever it uses) HDMI, component etc OUT to the same on the set(usually into a rear input) IN, select that input on the TV and if player good you should have a working system.
When you want to go to use the player select that input (most Mitsubishi sets will allow you to change from input # and label that input DVD etc--that's in the TV setup menu most of the time.
The more things you have connected to the set the more complex it can get.
Reset the player if the device stops behaving
normally. (Keep in mind that rotation sounds and picture issues during
search are normal.) Select the "System" menu from the setup area and
choose "Restore Factory Settings" or a similar option. Allow the device
to restart and then try the disc again.
Insert the disc face up in the tray. If playback fails to
start or if it starts and then stops, wipe the disc with a soft cloth
and try again. Throw out any heavily scratched discs that won't play.
Change the "TV Aspect" to 16:9 in the setup area of the menu
if the picture expands left and right or if the picture size is wrong
and you're using an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cable.
Set the wireless Internet router to automatically allow new
devices to connect to it if the Insignia player won't connect to the
Internet. The player uses only WPS to connect. Some routers
that use different automatic setup protocols won't work.
Make sure that the connection between the player
and the television uses an HDMI cable if you're watching a Blu-ray
movie. Some Blu-ray discs will only play over an HDMI connection. Also,
remember that some Blu-ray discs won't work with PiP
To connect wirelessly to a wireless network using WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup):1.Press ? or ? to select Settings.2.Press ENTER. The Settings menu opens.3.Press ? or ? to select Network. The Network menu opens.4.Press ?, press ? or ? to select Wireless, then press ENTER. A list of network options opens.5 Press ? or ? to select WiFi Protected Setup, then press ENTER. A screen will appear asking you to press the button on your router.6.Press the button on top of your router.7.A screen should appear on your TV that says "Success" when your player is connected to the router.8 Press ENTER to close the message.
The Sharp XR-30X will display 720P and 1080i. The Blu-Ray player is trying to send 1080P which requires a handshake. It sounds like you might have to go into the Blu-Ray player and tell it to use 1080i.
There are two possible issues. 1) The resolutions are mismatched. (output of the player and input of the TV) 2) the player can not confirm that the TV supports HDCP over the HDMI connection. Only 3 of the 4 HDMI ports are HDCP (high def copy protection) compatible.
Try a different HDMI port and make sure that you have the input set to the correct HDMI port. (There is an input button on the side of the TV as well as on the remote.)
The easiest things to check are turn off the Blu-Ray player and then turn it on again. Then press the Home button and navigate to the Setup Menu. Select Display and press the right arrow button, then select Resolution and press Enter. Then set the desired resolution and press Enter to confirm the selection. (Your TV should support 1080p from the Blu-ray player.) Then turn off the player since changing the resolution can lead to video issues.
This simply means that your TV isn't capable of handling a 1080 progressive input. This is why it is flickering. Change it back to 1080i(interlaced) and the only time you should ever see flicker is in a still menu. But even then it should be barely noticeable.
If your TV does support 1080progressive then you may want to change the scan frequency of the Yamaha receiver. Common ones are 24 frames/sec or 50/60 Hz. The amplifier should have an auto setting which will detect what the TV can display. The nice thing about HDMI is all that information is transmitted through the cable.
A version 2 or highspeed cable won't change the display at all.
