Hdmi connector causes picture freeze

The connector from our panasonic bluray was originally HDMI. We experienced picture freeze requiring rebooting the TV. We have swapped out cables from a Monster to a Rocketfish with a higher rating and now we have ''speckles'' as well a picture freeze. We are now running with component cables and seem to be fine. However.. the optical audio cable running from the LG to our AVR no longer works so we're back to RCA's. Tried calling LG service and chat neither was available.

Thanks for any help

Hello,

The problems with HDMI are plentiful. They are still hashing out the standards for it, and every company seems to be doing their own thing. The compatibility issues are never ending, and you may be a victim.

It sounds like the Blu-Ray and the TV are having compatibility issues. You can try changing resolution settings inside the Blu-Ray to see if it helps. If not, you might be stuck using Component cables. LG televisions are not the most well-constructed or designed tv's in the world, so if the optical output is not working, your Digital Board might have an issue, as well. Any competent TV repair shop should be able to assist you in troubleshooting and repair, if necessary.

I hope this helps you.

Panasonic bdt210 no sound


you will know if hook to another set but I in our shop have seen similar issues where either a cable or sat box had to be rebooted or even a software upgrade done to the set.

HDMI has mostly sound issues--my experience is it also does NOT like to be connected to units which are on at the time.......

I have a Motorola VIP1200 set top U-verse converter and a display with SVGA and HDMI. The VIP1200 seems to have a couple of connection options (S-video and a HDMI port). Is connecting them simply a matter...


S-video is only an enhanced picture (video) signal and, must be used with two rca cables: red=left channel sound, white=right channel sound.
HDMI requires an HDMI cable from a HDMI capable (must have an HDMI connector ) cable / satellite receiver to a HDMI TV (also must have an HDMI connector.

Tv will not turn on. Flashes 10 times. If we unplug/plug it basck in several times we can eventualy get it to work. Seems to be getting worse every day.


You need to replace the power supply, PN: ETX2MM704MGH. This 10 flash failure is common. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Everytime I use hdmi the colours are mostly green


I have a panasonic th42pa 60a SD plasma and I get the same problem WHEN USING CERTAIN HDMI cables. I had a connexa brand with my samsung stb that i got with the TV and I had no problems., but i had to replace that because one of the ends "frayed" when it was accidently yanked out of the tv socket. A high quality monster cable did the same green screen you describe. The cheapest "Crest" from Big W that did HDMI standard 1b worked fine, but a Rank Arena from Target did not. So buy the cheapest HDMI 1b cable you can, the picture quality and sound is the same as the more expensive stuff. BTW I tried a HDMI 3 way splitter as well and it did the same green screen thing, but it worked on a later model panasonic plasma. I think it is Pana's poor HDMI implementation.

We don't have the users manual for our TV.


Check to see what HDMI it is. Example-1.1, 1.2, 1.3a or 1.3b.
Sometimes equipment the have different versions of HDMI have a hard time (what's called) shaking hands, or communicating with each other.

So, your display may be ver 1.1 and the BluRay may be 1.3b. This could cause some problems. If this be the case, use a component video cable. The problem with HDMI is that it is ever changing and what you buy does in fact make a difference.

Also, check to see if the Res of your display is matched with the BluRay. If your display is 1080i, it will not show a 1080p output from your BR. My PS3 has several res outputs, up to 1080p and I have checked off all that would apply.

Trying to hook up my PS3 to my Viewsonic N3000W to enable me to watch HD BluRay Discs. There is no HDMI socket at the rear of the telly. Disc plays but HD picture quality looks the same as ordinary DVD....


Your TV has a DVI input connector, but no HDMI as you noted. Adapters (fondly called "dongles") are available to convert from the DVI connector to an HDMI jack so you can connect your HDMI source. Search for "dvi to hdmi adapter" with your favorite search engine and you will find them.

As for settings, this set has 720p resolution. Make sure your source is set accordingly, and you should be set to get the best quality you can with the connections available.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if you've found it what you needed, and thanks for asking here!

I had a similar problem with my Panasonic Viera 46 " 80U. I believe it was caused by HDMI ideoscyracies. When I turned off TV before shutting down the HDMI connected with my computer. It froze up. I could not get the TV to reboot, even if I pulled the plug, until I reconnected the HDMI to my computer and when I shut the computer down properly, something in the HDMI communicated to and released the TV from the freeze. At least that seemed to be the answer.

Let me know if this makes sense or if anyone experienced something similar.

Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box


I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.
