If you hook the blue ray directly to the tv bypassing the amp will it give a signal?

I hooked the blu ray dvd player directly up to the TV.. I also hooked the HDMI cable as follows HDMI cable comes out of Blu ray dvd and goes directly to the TV. The HDDMI signal now works.. But the picture constantly blinks on and off
TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 7 years ago

What setting do you have the output of the blue ray set to? 480i, 1080i, 720p, 1080p, ect.

The TV works fine on component 2. the HDMI is hooked up coming out out of the Blu Ray going into theTV. 1080p. WWhen the blu ray is turrned on and the HDMI cable is hooked to the Blu Ray and TV The TV recognizes HDMI signal. TThe picture blinks on and off constsnntly.
TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 7 years ago

That model is not a 1080p so if you are putting 1080p into it with the HDMI cable then it will blink on and off, you need to change the output to something lower like 1080i.

I set the output on the Blu ray dvd player on 720p. When the BLu ray player is on and a bluray disc is put in. while watching the tv the picture constantly blinks off and on
TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 7 years ago

Can you set it lower than 720p? just change it to 480i if possible to test and see if it stops blinking.
