HDMI input problems

My hd lcd works fine with all connection except for HDMI. If I use the HDMI input for HD signal the picture is initially perfect, but then color fades to black&white after about 10-20seconds. The picture remains excellent- but no colors, and the sound doesn't seem to travel via HDMI- only with separate coax (rca-type connection). My initial thought was to replace the board associated with HDMI input, problem is that the part # on the board doesn't appear to be available through any vendors. A local lcd repair shop couldn't even find a part # for the HDMI input. On the positive side I can still use component video inputs for HD signal, only that leave the S-video for my DVD player. Any ideas on cause and/or fix?

SOURCE: Inaccurate color with HDMI input

Sony admits that it is not a compatiblity problem. The tech hookei will ever buy!d up his Sony DVD and it lacked red. He then changed a small board, then a large one. Nothing helped. He then checked and found that even the composite inputs were not giving red. Now they say it is the B-Box. That has been replaced 2X already when they could not get the cable card to work. I have about had it with Sony. That is probably the very last Sony product that

SOURCE: yellowish color from DVD

Hello Tsmith4,
Have you tried another source such as a HD cable box on the same component input (Y Pr Pb) By doing this you will eliminate the TV or the DVD player. If the picture shows great using the cable box on that same input then we will assume that the TV is ok for now. You may want to also check the DVD menu under progressive scan that it is set to progressive scan. if the picture is still not good, we would want to look at the I/O board on the TV. The red path after the Video switch maybe open. If this is the case we will have to go to board replacement. I will tell you what board to change.

Best regards

No, that will not damage the input. But if you are using component input and the green wire is off or not connected correctly it will prevent a picture from coming on. The green is the luminance and carries the main picture signal.

LC-26DA5U 26 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television: i connect a hdmi cable 2 my hd cable box - the pic...

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

JVC LT-32DS75SJ issue with HDMI

Try this

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.

Well, I can tell you it shouldnt have anything to do with your not having an HD box. The TV does not require a HD signal to give you a quality picture. The HD box only gives you the enhanced HD signal, but should work as any regular TV without it. How do you have it connected?

Westinghouse ltv 32w4 hdc 32.02 in. hdtv lcd tv / dvd combo

My 42" Westinghouse HDMI inputs just stopped working. I thought it was the TW Explorer 4250HDC issue so I got a new one from TW. Still said no signal from HDMI. So, I shut the TV down and pulled the power cord out of the back. I waited a few seconds and reconnected the pwr cord. The TV "re-booted" so to say and now the HDMI inputs work. I think TVTEK has the right idea that it is firmware/software related. In the mean time, you might want to give that a try.
