Dear Sir/Madam,

Although these effects are temporary but they can cause screen burn-in problems later. The Toshiba 42HP66 comes with default picture settings, which is basically the Sports mode. The sports mode reproduces vivid mode effects. If you switch the picture mode to standard then it will decrease the contrast and brightness. According to a C-NET test, it has been found that the 42HP66 does not reproduce the same black level quality like some of the first-tier plasma televisions. Another drawback is the inconsistency in the color especially in light and dark scenes. There is also a considerable video noise in the picture.
The Toshiba 42HP66 has been enhanced with a colorimeter to ensure the delivery of best picture quality. It also has a Sencore High-Definition signal generator, as well as a specialized software suite that can calibrate the television to the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) standard color temperature of D6500K. Overall, the 42HP66 ives quite a performance...

Thanks
Good Luck

Toshiba's CrystalScan HDSC technology upconverts all video signals (including 480i/p) to 1080iHD, resulting in a significant reduction in jagged line artifacts to create the sharpest, most realistic picture possible from every source.

Try swapping the 2 hadmi inputs, this is probably a compatibility issue with one of the two devices connected through HDMI.

    Try to understand if the problem is caused by a bad HDMI cable, or if it is the receiver.

    Both the HDMI cable and the TV receiver box are relatively not very expensive to replace, unless you are using an expensive sat box.
    Find out what is causing the problem, and replace it.


    If the problem is on your TV, and you get this with any device Connected to HDMI 1, then the signal board on the TV must be replaced, in this case call the phone number listed on the user manual.

    If this TV has RCA or Composite input you can also try connecting DVD on RCA or Composite , and having the receiver on HDMI 2.

Your problem is in the streaming player. It is not keeping up and when an HDMI loses connection it will not auto find it again. To verify this take the Panasonic out of the loop and see if this fixes it. I love HDMI but it is touchy

I don't have a direct solution but I am having the same problem when connecting (1) my Apple TV (2) my Blu-Ray player, etc. via HDMI. I also have a digital camera that puts out HDMI, and when I hook it up, I get the same story -- video only, no sound through the optical digital output of the TV receiver.

I am guessing that the HDMI inputs were an afterthought on this model, especially since the printed manual doesn't even show or mention the HDMI inputs at all! So my guess is that the TV's receiver does not convert the sound from the HDMI to the optical digital output. It does, however, send the amplified HDMI sound to the stereo speaker outputs on the monitor. It appears that only the digital tuner's 5.1 sound comes out on the optical digital output.

This is what I have observed, for what it's worth.

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.

My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components.

I can watch my tv on the regular tv input but when I switch it to the HDMI input, i hear audio but the screen is total yellow...no picture what so ever


Are you hooking it up with the hdmi cable only and no other cables hooked up at the same time. Also make sure if the tv has multiple hdmi hookups that you are using the correct one. Sometimes the default is not hdmi 1 as you may think it should be. It's possibly HDMI 2 or 3. Double check your manual and it will tell you. Remember that HDMI cables take care of Video and Audio together so no other cable is recquired . Good luck

HDMI ports are not working


Try using the cables that were included with your PS3, (yellow, red, white) when you see your PS3 on that input. Plug in the HDMI cable. There should be something saying that an HDMI is detected and if you want to use it. Check the HDMI input on the TV and see if you see anything. The other thing that you might want to do is do a firmware update on the PS3. sometimes there are compatibility issues with HDMI

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound


I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie
