HDMI connection I am having a problem connecting my Samsung blu-ray player (BD-P1400) to my Toshiba DLP (46HM84) Television via the HDMI cable.  I get no picture with the HDMI connection, but I am getting one with the component cable. Is it possible to connect these two products with the HDMI cable to obtain a better quality picture?

It is possible that the DVD player is not outputing through the HDMI connector, or the TV has a problem with the HDMI input on the input board. This would have to be properly checked.

Start by calling the tech support for the DVD player to know if there is a setting for this, or if the player is defective.

Then check to make sure that there are no settings in the menu for the TV and player that are keeping the HDMI turned off.

If all else fails, call the tech support for your TV set. The next step will be that you must get the set serviced.

How do I connect my Samsung BD-E5400 blu ray player to tv and watch netflix with a wired internet connection?


From the modem to the blu-ray use an ETHERNET cable. From the blu-ray to TV use an HDMI cable. They only fit in the right terminals.

I get picture but no sound on my samsung blu ray


  1. Are you connecting through HDMI?
  2. Do you have another source to test the HDMI cable to make sure it is not faulty?
  3. Do you have a second HDMI Cable you could test and connect with?
  4. Does your TV have another HDMI Connection you can use to connect with instead?

Essentially we are looking to determine whether or not it is the TV's HDMI connector, the Blu-Ray's, or just the HDMI cable in general.

Black Bars on all blu ray movies


Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
