I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

When i use a hdmi cable in my samsung dvd hd860 there is no sound, why is this

I had a Samaung DVD VR-375 and it plugged straight in and had video and sound both with one HDMI cable. BUT I also have 2 new LCD TV's that provide and additional audio hookup to go with the HDMI hookup. Look for an audio OUTPUT ( L and R) from your Samsung HD860 and electrically connect it to your TV input associated with HDMI marked L and R.

I have tried to connect my SD 6100 and am getting no picture. I get sound.

You must use the remote to toggle the player OUT of HDMI output mode to use the non-HDMI outputs (like standard RCA-jack VGA or s-video or component video output). The device displays black screen by default unless you're using HDMI, so it's not possible to see the menu if using s-video. The manual states to press the 'Progressive' button to change modes. Unfortunately, you can't see what mode you're toggling through until you hit the right one (Toshiba blew it here!!). Power on the device WITHOUT a disk in (you can't change modes during DVD playback mode). There are four output modes, so press the 'Progressive' button on the remote and wait for 3 to 5 seconds for the player to switch output modes. Repeat this up to four times to cycle through the available modes. During one of the modes, you should see output to your screen through the cable hookup you've physically attached. You will also notice the led's on the front panel go on and off during the process at times. If you ARE using HDMI, then you have to select a mode your TV or monitor can handle. When in HDMI mode, you'll notice the front panel HDMI led's will light up. There are five modes here - 480P, 720P, 1080i, 1080P and AUTO (when all four leds are lit). Select the HDMI mode that your TV works with. Good luck ~ and don't bother calling Toshiba support ... friggin waste of time talking to a recording that's dumber than Sh#@!!

Malata DVP 892 hookup problems

I had the similar problem at first. You need to use another disc before you can configure the video output. Make sure you enable the HDMI output.

Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.

Sony DVP-NS77H No outout

I had the same problem unitl I read the manual a little more carefully.

I found that ALL connections through my AV receiver had to be identical. I was using component connections with analog connections.

Since I switched to all HDMI connections (cable box to AV receiver, DVD to AV receiver and AV receiver to TV) all is fine.

Hope this helps.

Compatibility Issue with HDMI Switch?

anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.
