Here goes nothing, I had my computer hooked to the TV for 6 months i kicked the cable acouple of times nothing seriously sending it out of the port, any how, one day i had a purple tint on the screen with two different computers so i figured the problem was in the cable. I then waited 6 months and bought a new nice hdmi cable and a fully dvi-i dual dvi -> hdmi adapter.
Now, cant get the hdmi port on the tv to work anymore
I tryed a dvd player on my tv, same no signal weak signal message or check cables message.
I tryed my old cable with the purple tint no luck to the computers.
Same problem, no hdmi
I used just the hdmi cable on my dads tv with a dvd player and the cable is good. great picture
I tryed power cycling / rebooting the tv to no avail.
what is the board that controls the hdmi called and do I need a new one?

In most cases you will not be able to see a great difference between HDMI and Component connections. As far as not seeing a difference between HD and SD signals from your cable box, go into the settings of it and see what resolution it is putting out. If you have a Motorola cable box, with it off and the TV on press the menu button and the setup screen will appear. That will tell you the output resolution as well as what the 4:3 override is set to. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....
The connector board inside the tv is the one has circuit traces already broken. there is nothing outside the tv can be done. The HDMI conector is high end technology solder. finally the solution is to replace the conector board inside the tv.
Not all TVs have video inputs to directly connect the computer output.
Some computers have video cards that have separate outputs(usually
S-Video) which you can use. Or you can purchase a video card that has the proper outputs.
If your computer has a DVI output, and
your TV has an HDMI imput, there are cheap adapters that you can buy,
as HDMI can process the DVI signal directly, just the cable is
If you need more assistance, we would need to know the models/outputs/inputs of both the computer and the TV.
This is a wild guess, but I believe that you are being **** by the movie industry. The HDMI protocol includes a form of DRM (Digital Rights Management) for high resolution content called:
High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection
Basically this means that the media (disk or broadcast) instructs the player (in your case the cable box) to insist that any downstream devices (your TV) is industry and DRM compliant.
Specifically this evil protection scheme is designed to plug the analog hole and make it impossible for you to record or copy the movie by using an analog output from your TV.
This even restricts the size of the TV you can play the movie on,
thus preventing pubs and bars from displaying the content on big screen TVs without paying royalties.
The message means that the manufacturer of your TV has refused to toe the industry line.
1984 Anyone ?
The captions are turned on in the cable box itself. If you have a Motorola cable box, turn it off then hit the menu button for the cable box. You will then see where you can turn off the closed captioning. Anymore questions email me email@example.com
