This is the my second HTS6510. I sent the first one back in August as it would not play the disc nor eject it and I'd only just got it. The replacement has worked well until recently when virtually the same problem you are experiencing happened to mine without "the contents cannot be displayed" bit. It corrected itself but did the same thing tonight and this time it sometimes displays the "content cannot be displayed" bit. I think it is the HDMI out connection that is at fault. Could be that it cannot cope with the sound, but I'm a long way from knowing how these things work. If you come back on site and know the answer please share it with me. I will be getting onto the seller in the morning as it's still under manufacturers warranty.

Just wanted to supplement DC's solution with photos for those who would like to see the project before attempting. For the record this fix worked perfectly and my unit is back to perfect working order with all my recordings intact.
Start by removing the top cover of the unit.
Working from the back of the unit you'll see the hard drive on the left.
Remove the two screws indicated by the red circles in the picture above. Then slide the cover plate forward and remove.
Two cables are connected to the hard drive. Left side is power and the black ribbon is the data connector. Both come off pretty easily. After removing cables lift out hard drive. Here's what you get.
Better view of cables after removing the drive. Remove plastic drive liner.
Remove the four screws indicated by the red circles in the picture above. Note the one at the top. (I missed this one for a few moments while putting it back together.) Remove drive mount.
Viola! You now see the burned out capacitors. Also circled are the four screw holes you just removed screws from and a cable that must be disconnected. (see next pic)
Gently pry up on the black plastic part of the cable mounted on the power board. You can see in this picture how I've just started to get it off a bit. You may have to pull on the latch in the center of the mounting. I did but I don't know if it was necessary.
On the back of the unit remove one screw just above the power plug. Then rock and twist and hold your tongue just right to get the power supply board out.
You'll see the capacitor numbers labeled on the circuit board on the front and...
on the back. Use a soldering gun to melt the solder on these four spots rocking the capacitors out of the holes as you do so. Just don't get solder over to any adjacent circuits.
You end up with nicely marked pos/neg info on the board.
Get your new capacitors from Radio Shack or other electronics store.
The ones suggested by DC are more heavy duty so they are bigger. I chose to lay them on their side so as to not raise the height of the board components. There is plenty of room to do so making my decision to do so a no brainer.
I leave the leads on the capacitors long until the capacitors are positioned and soldered in good shape.
Then clip the extra lead down to the solder with a wire cutter.
Thats it. reverse the directions to re-assemble the unit.
Hope the pictures helped. They always seem to help me prepare for such an adventure.

Are you running an additional Video card? Or are you using the built in one.
You might try cleaning the connector / plugs with acetone from finger polish remover or de=natured alcohol.
Never jam anything on a computer.
If its an add on card, remove it and reboot. Shut down and reinstall card and reboot.
keep me posted please,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. Look in our monitor repair section for step by step repair guide for this model it should be the same power supply as the 930. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

SOURCE: Monitor Blacks Out Randomly
Well If the monitor is brand new and you just purchased I would take it back and get another one as it appears to be defective. Most stores will allow you to exchange a defective item without a problem as long as you have the receipt. Any attemot to make repairs yourself could void the warranty. If it is used it may still be under warranty...I would get the model/serial number and contact Asus to have repairs made. Most monitors have at least a one year warranty.
