Can't change from HDMI2 back to HDMI1

I wanted to watch a Blue Ray movie on my player which is connected to HDMI2. I had to update my disc player using my USB and I did, we watched our movie but now I am unable to switch back to HDMI1. Unable to switch to any HDMI source. I changed the batteries, and all other functions work fine (on TV remote, DVD remote, and DIRECTV remote). I have used this function at least 4 other times without any problems, but now it is like "locked" onto HDMI2. I have turned the power off to all devices without results, hoping to reset to default. Any suggestions?

You need to change via tv selections option for tv, this should be possible by selecting the source for tv feed. This should give various options to select hdmi11, hdmi12, scart1 ect. If remote not working to change look on the tv itself for the control buttons, normally on the back to 1 side (rh from front) then pressing the correct button. If this does not work try turning power off to tv for a couple of minutes and then turning back on. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: no picture on hdmi2

First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.

SOURCE: Shortly after the cable receiver and plasma TV

i think logitek is complicating home entertainment with the notion of simplifying the quantity of remotes/devices people have. use the remotes that came with the device. its a lot of cash for a remote that causes so much frustration and complications. so we feel it is necessary to pursue the idea of One Holy Remote. Save yourself the headache, get rid of that nightmare and use the two or three remotes that came with your stuff. everytime i see one of those remotes in my customers hands, i think oh god not another one.

SOURCE: Hooked up to a Directv

No pictures on ALL mode? DVD, DIRECT TV, etc? How about using the component video output or composite video out put of the Direct TV?

If it is TV problem, then please try this:
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Blue Ray not working

One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

I'm trying to watch a 3d movie in my blue ray 3d

First off is your TV a 3D TV. If it is you should be able to go into the menu setting (or on the remote) and change the display from regular TV to 3D. Then your 3D blu-ray player should recognize it.

My rca blueray dvd player will only play dvd not blue ray

What model player do you have? What movies are you trying to watch?

Check if there is a firmware update for your player. If your player is older and your movie is a recent release, you may not be able to watch it unless there is a firmware update. (If no updates are available, the manufacturer wants you to replace the unit.) Due to changes in copy protection and codecs, new movies can't be interpreted on an older player.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your blue-ray player for more support.

Usb to watch movies on television

You need some sort of computer to watch a movie through the media station of the L2320A. The USB ports on the unit are a USB hub (one connection to the computer, two for devices); without a computer they are useless. Some of the media players (DVD/Blue-ray/media streaming units) that can play a movie from a USB drive without additional computing power. The format of the movie on the drive will limit which device can play the movie.

I wish that I had better news for you. Retrevo has a link to the manual for the L2320A here: . You will need to enter a code to access the file.

Vizio vbr210 error 11000404 How do I update firmware to watch newer blu ray movies?

I had the same problem -- we even returned the disc and got a new one. Go to the Vizio site and download the firmware for your player. Put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Follow the onscreen instructions (basically just press OK). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes from download to finish.

The Hunger Games works perfectly now.

Blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.

i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.
