Connecting a Sony BDP-S6700 to Optoma HD72 Projector via HDMI

I'm trying to get picture from a Sony BDP-S6700 via HDMI cable to a Optoma HD72 Projector (2008 model) and I'm getting a NO SIGNAL on the projector. I'm running audio from the BDP-S6700 directly to a reciever via Coaxial audio cable. I've connected an Apple TV to the projector and it worked fine. 

 

Any help or advice is much appreciated. Thanks

Hi Harrycaul,

 

Welcome and thank you for considering the SONY Community!

 

We are sad to hear that your projector displays a no signal message. 

This may be an indication that there is a loose connection or an incorrect setting. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.

NOTES:

  • This solution assumes the Blu-ray Disc player is connected directly to the TV. However, if the Blu-ray Disc player is connected to an Audio/Video (A/V) receiver, the steps given below to the TV should also be followed for the A/V receiver.
  • If the model-specific information is needed to complete any of the steps, refer to the instructions supplied with the product. Go to Manuals, Specifications & Warranty.
  • Each of the steps below represents a possible solution to the issue, check if the picture is displayed on the TV screen after completing each step.
  1. Make sure the TV is set to the correct video input to receive the signal from the Blu-ray Disc player.

    NOTE: Depending on the remote control for your TV, the remote may have a TV/VIDEO or INPUT button that can change the video input.

  2. If the issue is not resolved, turn off the Blu-ray Disc player and TV and turn it back on.
  3. Check the cable between the Blu-ray Disc player and TV to make sure it is securely connected to both products.

    NOTE: Try the steps below for HDMI® connections.

    1. Turn off the Blu-ray Disc player and all other connected equipment.
    2. Disconnect and then reconnect the HDMI cable.
    3. Turn on the connected equipment.
    4. Turn on the Blu-ray Disc player.
  4. If the issue is still not resolved, try lowering the output resolution.

    IMPORTANT: The steps on how to reset or lower the output resolution of the Blu-ray Disc player varies depending on the model. Follow the appropriate steps indicated below. If none of the steps below is applicable to your Blu-ray Disc player, check the Troubleshooting section of the supplied instructions manual of the unit. Go to Manuals, Specifications & Warranty.

    • If the supplied remote control of the Blu-ray Disc player has a VIDEO FORMAT button.

      On the supplied remote control, press the VIDEO FORMAT button repeatedly until the picture appears on the screen.

    • If the supplied remote control of the Blu-ray Disc player does NOT have a VIDEO FORMAT button.

      On the front of the Blu-ray Disc player, press and hold the STOP button for just over 10 seconds.

      NOTE: Some TVs connected with an HDMI cable may not support a 1080p signal. If the Blu-ray Disc player is outputting a 1080p signal, lowering the output resolution may resolve the issue.

    • For Blu-ray Disc player released on 2013 or later.

      On the supplied remote control, press the STOP, HOME, and POP UP/MENU button at the same time.

  5. On the Blu-ray Disc remote control, press the MENU button to try displaying the menu.

    IMPORTANT: If the Blu-ray Disc player menu does not appear, skip steps 6, 7, and 8 then proceed to step 9. Otherwise, continue with the steps below.

  6. Make sure the video output setting of the Blu-ray Disc player is either set to Auto or to the type of connection being used.
  7. If using an HDMI connection make the following changes:

    NOTE: The steps below are not available on all Blu-ray Disc players.

    1. In the Screen/Video Settings setup, set the BD/DVD ROM 1080/24P output to Off.
    2. Set the HDMI Deep Color output to Off.
    3. Set the X.V. Color output to Off (this option is not available on some models).
    4. Make sure that the HDMI control setting is set to Off. If using a non-Sony Blu-ray Disc player, this setting may be called CEC control or the AnyNet function.
  8. Check for and attempt to install any firmware/software updates. Go to Drivers and Software.
  9. If the issue is not resolved, try replacing the cable between the Blu-ray Disc player and TV.
 
Best regards,
-Erin
