I have an old Westinghouse TV (LTV-32w6HD). I'm trying to hook up a Sony Blu-ray player(BDP-S1700) with HDMI
, but I'm getting "Invalid Format" on the TV. I've tried 4 different HDMI cables. I hooked the blu-ray up to another TV and reset the output to 720p, but still no luck. When the blu-ray player is powered on, I see the Sony logo then it goes to invalid format with the occasional flash of what looks like static.
JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your Sony? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Sony is new. Model # is BDP-S1700.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: Everything else works.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: I just bought the Sony. I haven't had anything hooked up to the HDMI on the TV for probably more than a year, but it worked the last time I used it.
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, that's it.
