My 2006 Samsung 50 inch plasma tv's HDMI ports (1&2) stopped working. When you turn on the cable box or the DVD player, there is a picture and sound for aprox. 5 Sec. then the screen turns bright green and it's just sound. If I hook up the componant cables it works fine (just not a clear as HDMI). Any sugestions?

Re: Samsung HDMI issue
Have you try to replace your HDMI cable?I recommend you to pick up a good Monster HD700 HDMI cable from a local retail store like best buy or circuit city.In case it isn't the cable problem,you could return it. However,when you are a using the HDMI cable,it is normally either have both picture and sound or nothing at all.Are you sure you didn't hook up the audio OUTPUT from your TV back to a receiver input? Or even an optical output from the TV to the receiver? solutiondoct

Use HDMI wire if you have that option than simply tune TV to HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 etc depending which one you connect it to .
OR. analog ( R C A ) cables analog. Output from DVD player to imput tv """ red is right white. Is left sound. Yellow is video pay attention to where you are plugging on TV.video 1 or 2 or 3 Since you will have to go to ( video. Or imput ) on your TV to access the DVD player. Another words your cable box is a TV imput . You're doing is also a TV imput You have to tune it to be able to watch it
It is possible the hdmi cable that you are using is faulty. The reason I say this is because you have multiple signals that pass through a hdmi cable (19 pins in it means 19 wires to carry signals). The more the cable gets moved and bent, you increase the chances of creating a short or re-connecting a short if moved from one tv to another. This is the best case scenario as it is easier to replace the cable and less costly. Since you already connected the the dvd directly to the tv, and I am presuming that you have working devices running through the switch and you can eliminate that as the problem. If you do not have working devices on your switch or directly into your tv, and you have tried multiple hdmi cable and still nothing, the hdmi connector on your tv is probably bad and that would be the worse case scenario.
that's a firmware problem where your tv's firmware does not handshake with your dvd's firmware. This could be from your dvd's software being to old for your tv to understand it. HDMI (TDMS Technology) still has Alot of catching up too do with 3rd generation tv's. Alot of HDMI devices still have the first gen software loaded into them. So a tv after 2005 won't work with HDMI from 2003 (1st gen). Most tv's made after 2007 have software that's "backward compatible" so they will work with first gen HDMI.
Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.
I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.
But the VCR part didn't work. At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"
I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.
I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.
I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed. The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.
I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.
It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.
See if this works for you. My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter. Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off. You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".
best set up if you have all hdmi is to have all your components go into the receiver ie. hd cable box, dvd etc. by using the hdmi output from the player(s) to the hdmi input to the receiver. next use one hdmi cable from the receiver to the tv then your laughing.
