[Video Settings] Zappiti Player 4K: No video signal on TV (black screen)

If you have a black screen or no video on your TV which is connected to the Zappiti Player 4K, it could be several situations:

1. Please make sure that your HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI Output and not on HDMI Input.


2. The HDMI connection cable is defective or does not provide sufficient speed for boosted video streams of 4K Zappiti Player (Zappiti MagicPixel). In this case, try replacing the HDMI cable or try the HDMI cable supplied with the Zappiti Player 4K. If the length of your cable exceeds 3m, you will need a high quality cable high-speed compliant.
On lengths less than 1m, the differences between the HDMI cables are minimes.
Note: some high-quality cables are not compatible with Zappiti Player 4K uncompressed video output.

The other solution is to use the analog video output.
