Problems using HDMI

The projector has a flickering sound as it is trying to process the HDMI signal. I am using Sony BDP S300 blu ray player. Projector was working fine with a regular DVD player with HDMI output, but recently after trying to use the blu ray, the DVD player signal is not working either. When hooking up the blu ray player, the screen says that it is not getting a signal from HDMI. Thanks.

Re: problems using HDMI

I've had a problem with the HDMI connector, had it replaced twice while my VPL-HS60 was under warranty. This connector seems very fragile, the first time I was not getting any signal from HDMI, so the repair shop ordered a new connector and replaced it, a couple of days after the it was not working again and found that they had to solder it back on the board. If you're not getting a signal from HDMI anymore that could be your problem.

What connections do i use to connect projector to tv?

You don't connect a projector to a TV.

A TV doesn't have the capability of supplying a source signal to another device. It can only accept a signal and display it itself. Connect a DVD player/Blu-ray player/TV receiver/Games Console to the projector directly via the AV sockets.

Use a separate sound system if you need more volume than the projector's tiny built-in speaker can provide.

Why is my epson ex5200 not recognizing HDMI all of the sudden

Check to make sure you're HDMI source is turned on first. (example: Cable Box, Blu-Ray Player)

If you haven't changed any configurations on your projector, you might check the physical connection of the HDMI cable.

You might also try to disconnect the HDMI, then do a factory reset on your projector, and then re-connect the HDMI cable.

I connect new LG Blu -Ray On my Sony Cineza Projector.but only blue colour on the screen ,what is the problem here?

You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

Projector Input is on DVI - Video. HDMI cable thru an adapter is plugged into DVI port. When av receiver has "TV" selected; Picture is projected. When Blu-Ray is selected; there is no picture....

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.

I have a canon projector with a blue ray dvd player. I connected the video signal using a HDMI-DVI cable, but I cannot get the video signal, how do I set it up?, is it compatible

It's possible that the BD player's HDMI output is either not enabled (look in the player's manual for instructions)
Or the BD's output is set to 1080p which this projector will not support. This projector's maximum resolution
that it can support (down convert) is 1080i The i means interlaced and the p means progressive. Set the BD player's output resolution no higher than 1080i and it will probably wok out for you.

Dell 3300mp Projector No Signal found to Digital DVD

Guys, the projector doesn't do HDCP.  HDMI won't work.  You'll need to run over component or VGA.

No input detected on projector

it sounds like the A/V reciever does not upconvert the component signal to HDMI. Not many do. The Marantz recievers will (SR6001, SR8001, etc..). Also bear in mind that HDMI cables are finicky and may require amplification over a few meters long.
