Get a better HDMI cable, had similar problems with PC connection using a good quality HDMI (older), updated to the latest version (cheaper manufacturer) and all the problems disappeared. Going to component will work, but why sacrafice quality.

Probably a handshake problem with the cable box. It is common for cable boxes to have HDMI handshake problems. Hook the box up using the component cables and you should be fine

Wont connect to verizon dvr box, its connected to the video out cable and the fios tv cable.


Make sure that the dvr is not outputting a HD signal to your set - if it is, your set will not work unless you change the signal to 480 from the HD setting.

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

Sony 52" Bravia LCD will drop picture and sound for 1-2 seconds


the only thing that i can think of is that the cables and connections are bad but if that is not the case it may be the internal components of the tv. my guess is that the tv was dropped or jumbled around while transported and what happened was internal components were broken or just mixed up so go to the retailer and get a refund or a new tv. hope this helps

I have hd picture but no sound, tv says hdmi audio unavailable


I called Verizon and exchanged my STB from a QIP 6416 to a QIP 7216 and it solved the HDMI audio problem. This looks like the fix.

Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box


I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.

HDMI crap out


I got the solution. Contact Customer Service, ask for LEVEL II Tech, and ask them for the old firmware. It will take a lot of pressuring, but they will send it to you and then it will work fine!
