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.

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.

I plugged in my PS3 using an HDMI cable and i get no feedback


If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.

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.

Toshiba regza all but the hdmi input on my 42 inch toshiba regza


In most cases the HDMI issues are the source itself. Try another item like a DVD player or BluRay player. If they work then its a compatibility issue. If they don't then the HDMI receiver board in the TV is bad. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Toshiba REGZA 37AV500A LCD TV when using HDMI input picture and sound intermitantly blacks out for about 2 seconds


Does this happen with all the HDMI inputs. If only the one then jack is bad. Replace the main board. If on all HDMI inputs see if replacing the cable helps.
