Sound but no picture: HT-BD1200 to Vizio LCD via HDMI
by dannyski - 12/7/09 6:34 PM
With all new equipment, and only the subject components connected, I get sound but no picture. Of course I'd get sound... no TV involved - HT has the BD internalized. Repeated calls to Samsung Support was futile. They have a boiler plate troubleshooting template, and that is all they can do, and do again, and again. I was able to get a little farther with a Vizio tech person, who suggested using the AV connection, to check the HT-BD1200 set up. That worked and even after disabling AnyNet, I still get sound but no picture through the HDMI. I tried all 4 HDMI inputs on the Vizio. The cable is 1080P v1.3. When first booted, I get an attempt at an image, then "Retrieving data..", then a blank screen. It is like there is a compatibility issue between the two units. I am thinking of trying a new cable [another new one, but different brand]. What else can I try?
