    It started with just one little hiccup and then the screen would go to blue screen, kind of reset itself, with audio still running. And then the movie would pick up just fine. Has now progressed to near constant flashes of light, and movie is unwatchable. Help

    During the movie I get a signal interuption, The screen goes white and sometimes "pops" with a loud noise. It always states a weak signal on screen. The movie will come back on and play just fine.

    Same U73 error here. It's obviously HDMI related with either your receiver or television and the Player. It will continue unless fixed by Panny. It's really unfortunate that all of us hard working schmucks are these guys Beta Testers.

U73 indicates the unit is not 'handshaking' with the display device via HDMI. Try a different HDMI lead and see if the problem persists. If so, try it with a different display device.

U73 error code

Panasonic SC-BT200EB Blue Ray Home Cinema system will not work without an expensive (£80) 1.3a HDMI cable. Lesser cables will produce U73 error on the blue ray player and no picture on the TV.
