Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player

1 Answer

No connection/ no signal

I attempted to hook up my new Blu-ray last night. I connected it to my LCD TV via the provided HDMI cord. Easy. Connected the power cord. Turned on the TV, then selected the proper input designae and then turned on the Blu-ray. No signal. I turned both units on and off, unplugged and re-plugged, yada, yada. The Blu-ray opening screen did come on a few times or so but only for a few moments. Then the no signal pops up again. Any ideas??

Either the new BlueRay player is defective, the HDMI port on the player is defective, or the port on your set is defective.

Try connecting it with component RGB/AV cables, or S-Video/AV cables and see if everything works. If so, then you know that it is either the port on the BlueRay, or the port on the TV set.

To test the HDMI port on your TV, you will need another HDMI device to try.

I have red,yellow& white come out my dvd and only white & red plug in on the back of my tv how do i make that work and which source and channel i put the tv on

Red and White are audio, yellow is video. On the back of the TV there should be a yellow jack if it takes external inputs. There are two ways to connect your Blu-ray Player to your amplifier. Via HDMI output: Connect the player's HDMI OUTPUT to the corresponding INPUT on your amplifier using an HDMI cable. If your amplifier has an HDMI OUTPUT, connect that to the HDMI INPUT on your TV using an HDMI cable. See if these links help.

I am supposed to be able to record from VHS to DVD and yet I am unable to do so. I asked the question yesterday and did not receive and answer.

Not knowing what components you have makes it difficult to assist you. As a general note, HDMI provides the best connection for video and audio.

HOWEVER, the HDMI source can talk through the cable to the connected device. A cable box, seeing that something other than a TV is connected to it, will turn off the signal rendering the connected device useless.

To get around the problem, cable the devices together using component video and audio cables (5 cables are required). They are typically colored red and white for audio and green, blue and red for video.

Can't tune in tv with dvd states ext link problem

If you've connected the DVD to the TV via HDMI or SCART you shouldn't need to 'tune it in', just select the HDMI or SCART input. If your TV is also a Freeview device and you want to tune it to Freeview, where you have the aerial connected to the DVD recorder, you need to also connect the DVD recorder to the TV via an RF cable or aerial flylead so that the aerial signal passes through the DVD recorder. It's all in the instructions

Connecting to lcd tv with HDMI cable

you will probably need to tell you DVD you want to use the HDMI output so it will send via HDMI. You'll have to hook it up to the original tv so you can see DVD menus when the player is in Stop mode or there is no DVD in.
