Invalid format

Just bought & connected a brand new BDP-S1100 via a new HDMI cable & although I'm following the instruction manual, my LG TV gives me an error msg that reads, "Invalid Format."

Re: Invalid format



Press and hold the STOP button on front panel of the Player for just over 10 seconds and check if there is a picture.

If this didn’t help, make Composite or Component cable connection between the Player & TV and then set the “BD/DVD ROM 1080/24P”, “HDMI Deep Color “ options under “Screen Settings” to OFF.


To Enter Screen settings, press HOME menu button (Remote)> SETUP (suit case icon)> Screen Settings.
