Question about Televison & Video
I lost 1 HDMI port and the other 2 are cutting in and out. I tried unplugging for a while and reconnecting, but after the set warms up, it starts cutting in and out again. Composite and regular RCA hookup work OK but I need the HDMI. Could it be the Main Board?
Some brands are known to have it be the HDMI port itself failing unbfortunately replaceing the main board is easier than repaceing the HDMI input on the board unless you have excellent soldering skills.

FOUND A SOLUTION! (at least in my case) thanks to some creative Google searching...
Apparently the HDMI ports can get into a state where they are unable to negotiate the input signal properly. The way to "clear" the ports and allow the HDMI signal to be detected is to perform a "reset" on the unit.
Just turn the set off using the power button on the right side of the unit. Then, press and HOLD the power button for at least 10 seconds, then release.
The set should turn on and essentially do a "reboot" where it displays the Westinghouse logo. After that your HDMI ports should be functional again.
It worked for me :-) Best of luck..

SOURCE: my hdmi port is not working
I have Verizon Fios and there's a known issue with the motorola HD boxes that they have bad hdmi ports, the screen goes green and that's it, nothing I can do about it I just use component cables. You need to be sure it's your tv not the cable box. Try the hdmi on a dvd player or ps3 or whatever else you have first just to be sure it's the tv at fault not the cable box. If you determine it is the tv you need to replace either the main board or the video board depending on your specific tv model. Some have the video inputs on the main boards some have video boards.
