I have a strange problem… I’ve been enjoying watching movies from my WD media player ( http://www.wdc.com/WDProducts/Library/UM/ENG/4779-705035.pdf)) on my Samsung TV - via a HDMI cable. Things have been going great. Then I get a Playstation3… and this is where it gets weird. I take the HDMI out of the back of the media player and connect the PS3 with it. The PS3 goes through its initial set up and works fine. I then take the HDMI out from the back of the PS3 and connect the media player again- but instead of working perfectly (like it did before) I get the error message from the TV saying: Mode not supported.
In the TV’s manual ( http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200909/20090918145454828/BN68-01895D-02Eng-0916.pdf)) …under this error message comes the advice: “Check the supported resolution of the TV and adjust the external device’s output resolution accordingly. Refer to resolution settings in this manual.”
I’m not sure what happened, or why something that did work now doesn’t, but I get a sense it has nothing to do with my WD media player, since nothing changed with this, however perhaps the PS3 altered the settings of the television??.. and now the TV and the media player can’t speak with one another??
I’ve tried resetting the WD player to its original settings (via the reset hole/button), and it’s been held in long enough to fully reset itself. That’s all good, but the problem persists…
Has anyone else had this issue? Or knows how to resolve it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
