Sceptre X37sv-Naga 37 HDMI port is not making contact

Recenty, my Sceptre X37sv-Naga was not making good contact through the HDMI port giving me no picture or sound through that port. I could get it to sometimes work by manuevering the HDMI cable connector. Has anyone else seen this problem? Sceptre wants me to send it back to them because I have 1.5 months warranty left but if anyone knows how to fix the issue, it could save me the shipping costs.

    I have the same problem. The HDMI cable connection works some times and some times it doesn't. I was told by Septre that they would charge $200 to fix it but know guarentees. So I decided not to use it but would like to get it fixed. Does anyone know what the problem is. I will try to fix it myself since the power just went out on me and I think it is a power supply problem.

    I have Sceptre X42GV-Naga (42" TV 1080p with Media Box). It has two HDMI ports, and neither of them works. Someone else had said that they had the same problem and fixed it by opening the media box and connecting some loose wires. Can someone tell me what to do?

    Thanks -JD

    I have the same problem with my Sceptre X42 , both my hdmi ports do not function neither does the component cable ports.

    If someone has the instructions on how to fix this by opening the media box, please share, SCEPTRE is not helpful at resolving this issue and they want extra money. I wont be buying with them again, just purchased this tv 1 year 9 months ago. So annoyed, would like to experience this tv in hd quality, if anyone has the instructions on what wires to soder/fix, please share.

    hdmi port has never worked on my x37. any suggestions?

  • spaznrq Mar 08, 2009

    I have the X37sv-naga as well with the same HDMI problem. It worked before for a bit, but as I used it more, it began working intermittently, and finally, HDMI broke completely.

    The problem seems to be a very loose HDMI connector. There simply isn't enough physical support for the port to handle the force experienced by tugging, pulling, or other pressures on the HDMI cable, therefore, breaking the connections of the connector to the circuit board.

    I seriously urge anyone with a working HDMI to STOP using it unless the port is reinforced (by Sceptre if still in warranty). Since my TV is out of warranty, I have to resort to trying to fix it myself. I currently don't have a solder iron tip small enough to fix it myself, but if you are inexperienced in working with electronics, I wouldn't suggest anyone doing it yourself due to breaking anything else or worse yet, risk of shock.

My samsung smart tv hdmi ports do not work anymore

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Sharp aquos tv not turning on

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.

If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.
