Customer Question

I have a TX-L55WT50B Panasonic 55inch TV linked to my Panasonic DMP-BDT230 Blu ray player. The TV works fine but I cannot get the Blu ray player to show on the screen or to play sound through my Yamaha sound bar. What do I do to make it work?

Hello, my name isXXXXX be happy to assist you.


Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.


- Does TV display bluray logo screen?

- Have you connected bluray directly in TV or plugged in Yamaha then into TV?

I have rebooted the whole system again and all seems to be working well now thank you. Problem solved for now it seems.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Allen,

Glad to know that problem is resolved, seems it was HDMI handshake (communication) issue and rebooting did work.

If such problem comes again, please reduce HDMI output resolution a bit in bluray to avoid such problem in future, some times TV doesn't process highest video resolution from video source like bluray that caused no picture or sound issue.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

A positive rating to answer would be greatly appreciated!
