Default No Signal! Vizio HDTV/Insignia Blu-ray player

Hello, I am new here and I really need some help.

I just got an Insignia NS-BDLIVE01 Blu-ray player and I connected it to my Vizio VW32L40A LCD TV via HDMI and I only get a blue screen and "No Signal!" message on HDMI1 and HDMI2 inputs.

So I tried using a different HDMI cable that I know for a fact works and it still said "No Signal!"

I tried using the Insignia on a different TV and it worked fine with both HDMI cables.

I tried using a different Blu-ray player on my Vizio and it worked fine.

The Insignia displays picture on my TV through composite cables, but not HDMI.

So basically my Insignia player doesn't seem to work on my Vizio TV with HDMI, but everything does work on its own. Is there anything that I can try to get these two to work together? Please help me and thanks in advance.

Connect everything according to the user manual. Then unplug both the TV and the BD player (power cords) and leave them unplugged for at least 1/2 hour. Plug them both back in and power on the TV first and then the BD player. Hopefully this will reset the tv and it will recognize the BD player.

I tried that, still no luck. Is there anything else that I could try?

I've already tried setting the player to different resolutions, from 480i to 720p, nothing worked though.

That is odd. Hook it up with component and call it good. same picture quality, just need to run separate audio.

I really dont want to use component because I already have HDMI and its better, but that seems to be my only option, thanks for trying to help.

the only way HDMI is better is that it can pass the newer HD audio codecs to a receiver. But since you be running directly to your tv, it makes it a moot point. The picture quality will be the same, and in some ways, the performance is better (less handshake issues) via component. Sorry to read about your troubles and hopefully some other members will chime in that have experienced like problems.

Prayer....No really you said you hooked it up through composite (red,white,yellow) hook it up with component cables (red,blue,green) and the audio connection and your pic will be just as good as it would be with HDMI

Your tv will upconvert the DVD. I don't believe Insignia BD players are known for their upconversion capabilities AFAIK.

It sounds like a handshake problem with the Insignia player and the Vizio TV. First thing to do is update the firmware on the BD player to the latest version. This could have been a known problem that is already solved with the firmware update.

THEN, make sure the Vizio is turned on AND already set to the HDMI input that the Insignia BD player is connected to. Only THEN should you turn the Insignia BD player on. If that works you will have to follow these steps to use HDMI between these two devices or return the Insignia BD player for another brand that doesn't have the problem.

Hope this helps & good luck!
