Toshiba 26HF85 26 in. Television _ hdmi splitter does not work

I have a Toshiba 26HF85 26 in. Television. There's just one hdmi input on the back so I got a Phillips hdmi splitter. When I connect a Dish network hdmi cable PLUS a PS3 hdmi cable into the hdmi splitter it doesn't work. When each cable is plugged in individually the tv works fine. As soon as I try the splitter it doesn't. My brother tested the splitter on his newer LCD TV and it works. Is it a compatability issue with older models or is there a setting that needs adjusting?

SOURCE: Help HDMI Splitter Doesn't Work!

The HDMI splitter is intended to take one source to two displays. You need an HDMI switch to take two sources to one display, a device you can tell which input to select.

I need help setting hooking up my DVD player to my hisense tv


There are 3 options for connecting a DVD player to a television. HDMI, Component or VGA. The most common, and best, these days is HDMI which requires 1 cable, called a HDMI cable, between the player and television. These input / output sockets are clearly marked & there is usually about 3 of them on most televisions. HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3. The next is component. These consist of 4 separate connections. RED, GREEN, BLUE & YELLOW. Again simply connect like to like. The third (VGA) are RED, WHITE & YELLOW. Same deal, simply connect like to like on player and set. Once one of the connections are made select SOURCE on the television remote and select the connection that you have made. Cheers

How do I replace hdmi connectors in tv


If your television is under warranty, have the manufacturer repair or replace it for you. If your TV has more than one HDMI port, you can use an HDMI splitter to connect multiple inputs to the one port. However, if you are confident in your soldering skills, you can repair broken HDMI port, so long as the damage is only to the connector and not to the printed circuit board to which the port is soldered.

How do I cable this connection please?


It depends what input connection the second TV has available. You cannot directly daisy chain HDMI cable from Apple TV to the two TVs assuming both have HDMI input. But you can purchase an HDMI 1x2 splitter and connect the 3 up provided the 2nd TV also has HDMI. The challenge maybe the distance you can have between the two TVs. Max is 15 meter but you could cascade 2 units to create longer distances.

HDMI inputs don't work. The TV was working perfectly and then we lost the picture. The component inputs work fine and a new HDMI cable didn't fix the issue. Had the same problem 2 years ago and they...


No, but the HDMI interface is very sensitive to static discharge - has been a storm nearby? To prevent this from happening again i usually install to all my customers cheap splitters just before the tv, they will fry before the tv protecting it.
I'm sorry but it's time to change that board again.

My 52" Toshiba DLP just dropped an HDMI connection... There are two connectors on the back, both have worked fine until just now when one disappeared from the inputs menu on the screen.


Hi,
I'm not sure about your tv model as question post shows it is Toshiba 52HM84 that has one HDMI input at rear and you said 3 HDMI inputs in your tv.
Please unplug tv from wall socket for minute or so to get it reset, replug back in, turn it On and check its HDMI inputs appear or not.
Also check for Reset option in Menu for factory default settings that can also help you to get back disappeared HDMI inputs.
If all that does not solve the issue then it seems hardware problem with HDMI circuit board and tv repairman is needed for visual check to get it fix.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Flashing boxes on screen


Regardless of what the satellite company says, I would find a way to try another satellite reciever to start with. I have seen this from cable boxes and satellite recievers many times. I have also seen this with a bad LNB, distribution amplifier, or a bad active splitter, or a bad cable, or a bad connector.

There is a data loss somewhere, and the set is seeing what we call aliasing. This is a loss of data, and it shows as blocks.

It is possible for your set have internal aliasing if there is a fault on one of the processor boards. The only way you will easily know if the problem is external or internal to the set is to try another source.

From your description, if other sources work with the set, then this strongly rules out the set. To easily know if the fault is on the input that the sat reciever uses, if possible swap the position with the DVD player.

On the sat system, a defect in the reciever, the LNB, or any LNB splitters or a relay, or a bad connector, can also cause aliasing because of a signal loss.
