LG Blu-Ray player not working on Vizio but working on Samsung


Jan 7, 2014
I have a 3D Vizio TV in my living room, and I have an older Samsung TV in my bedroom. Both are 1080p. For the longest time, my Blu-Ray player was in the living room and worked fine. Then I took it into my bedroom, and thanks to Netflix I stopped going to Redbox.

Tonight, I tried to bring my Blu-Ray player into my living room, and it doesn't work no matter what HDMI port or cord I use. My computer, DVR, and Wii U all work. The LG splash screen shows and then all black

I take the player back to my bedroom and plug back into the Samsung, and it works as it should... I did a factory reset on it, and it still doesn't work. Unplugged and replugged the Vizio... Still nothing...

Any clue what is going on?

Sorry this is not solution but expressing a similar problem. I have an brand new LG tv and a brand new Sony Blue ray player. When I connect the player to the tv with a brand new HDMI cable, the opening screen flashes every few seconds. I am in Nepal so I have to use a 220V converter for the blue ray. I got too smart and popped in a blue ray disc before making sure the connection is working. The BD has a hick up noise every few seconds, and no mater what button I press, I can't open the CD holder, nor turn off. I have to pull the plug. I plugged in a laptop on the TV with the same cable and it works just fine.
