    I have a mitsubishi 73" rear projection I just bought and an Onkyo surround receiver. I cannot get the picture to work with the HDMI cable, I get sound though. I Have checked out that the receiver can work this way with another TV. I connect Cable box to in1 and TV to HDMI out on receiver. I sometimes get an error message from the TV that states "HDMI switching through AV receiver is not supported."
    I can sometimes "trick" the TV into working correctly, but when I turn the TV off and back on it won't work again. The TV is brand new so I see no reason for this not working with HDMI, and I know the receiver works correctly. Is there any way to "fix" this problem?

I am not sure what your problem might be, I have figured out mine though and this is a good answer for a lot of people in the future.
My problem was that my receiver is HDMI 1.3 compatable, however the newer Mitsubishi TV was 1.3a for HDMI. There is no way around this even though I was able to trick my old receiver and TV into connecting, whenever I turned it off the problem came back. I just bought an Onkyo SR805 which is 1.3a version of HDMI, and the TV receiver combo work fine now.
You might have to read your manuals carefully to make sure they are exactly using the same specs. Also, I bought a $30. HDMI cable, and I got the same picture as one that cost $120.00. It is more being the right version than who made the cable.

My plasma TV seems to have problems with picture immediately after turning on. At about two weeks ago, the TV lost picture after turning on the TV. It was corrected by disconnecting power then reconnecting. A switch on rear left hand side would click bringing picture ON, somehow this clicking seems to have problems being energized lately not allowing picture to come on the TV. Checked power cable and was getting 120 Volts to TV, nonetheless problem has gotten worst and TV does not show a picture? Your thoughts on my problem?

IF you are saying that every thing is connected properly check your video cable it could be bad use a new one if that does not rectify your problem it is time to call in the tech you could be having problem in your video circuit but you did not mention if the screen light up with no picture but with sound or it does not light up blank with sound.however there could be two things 1 if the screen lightup with normal sound it could be a leaky ,open, or shorted, transistor or ic in the IF circuit.2 If the screen does not light up and has normal sound it could be a defective horizontal stage.so it is time you take the set to a tech for repairs.good luck.

How do i get the hdmi working


HDMI start by putting one end of the HDMI cable in the HDMI socket on the tv, then the other end in the HDMI socket on the device your are going to use. It can be a decoder, an apple tv or something else that needs an HDMI connection to the tv to work.
Secondly find the remote control and push the input button then there should be a picture on the screen with different possibilities for input. Click where it says HDMI.
You should be connected now,

Is your cable box HD? It would be best for your tv. You can hook up a couple of ways depending on your receiver and tv in/out capabilities. You will always get best picture if you go directly from your cable box out to tv in. You should have capabilty to go HDMI out and perhaps Component out on your cable box. If you can't get hd receiver from cable company. Anyway, if you use HDMI, hook to HDMI out on receiver to HDMI in on tv. HDMI provides audio and video. You can also go componenet(red, blue, green) out from recevier to in on tv. I personally feel component gives you better picture but , doesn't carry audio. For that you need to get audio using either digital optical or, composite cables. You may have to set your HD on receiver through cable boxes menu. The last option is using composite cables(last choice, poorest picture and sound) yellow(video) and red, white(audio)

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem
