SOURCE: HDMI port not working

I have the same problem - its a HDCP handshake issue. Sony says the firmware in the Westinghouse TV needs to be updated - Westinghouse says that they have firmware updates for some models depending on your TV's serial number, otherwise they are working on firmware updates for the rest of us that should fix the problem. Call Westinghouse to see if you can get updated.

You either have failed 24vdc power supply section or failed backlight inverter board, check for 24vdc first, look for caps with leaking/bulging top.

SOURCE: 47" two yr old Visio

This is the second time I have seen this problem this week. Seems like a common issue on Vizio LCDs. Anyways the problem you mentioned indicates that the tv-micro IC has failed. THis is located on the main audo/video board and a component level repair is not possible in this case. The main A/V board has to be replaced and it should cost you around 100-125$. Would you like to do it yourself?

SOURCE: remote wont work and can't acess menu with tv

Turn your Sony Bravia on by pushing either the power button on the front of the TV or the power button on the remote control, which is located in the upper right corner of the remote.

  • 2 Press and hold the "up arrow" button on the remote control. The up arrow button is located in the middle of the remote, to the left of the "Input" button and below the "Picture" button.
  • 3 Press the power button on the TV while still holding down the up arrow button. The TV will turn off and then turn itself back on.
  • 4 Release the up arrow button. Once the TV turns itself back on, it will restore your Sony Bravia to its factory settings.

    How to activate my laptop to my samsung tv

    If you mean watch what you see on your laptop on your TV, then you need to connect an HDMI cable or S-Video cable (depending on what sort of ports you have) from your laptop to your TV, then select the appropriate input on your TV or TV remote. For example if connected via HDMI and your TV has 2 HDMI inputs (ie. HDMI 1 and HDMI 2), select which one you connected to.

    No play back from HDTV to threater system

    Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
    You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
    You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
    But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
    But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.

    Periodic tv screen blackouts

    The problem is your cable box. I know you said you replaced it, but I work on TV's everyday and, sorry to say this but cable box HDMI outputs have serious issues, like no or intermittent sound and video. I have seen customers exchange their cable boxes 5 and 6 times and still have the problem. Your best bet is to use the component outputs of your cable box, visually you will not see a picture difference between component and HDMI when using a cable box. Your other solution is to get satellite; I have NEVER seen an HDMI issue with a satellite box
