I have a Marantz DV4001 and was using it with a Hantarex Plasma TV on HDMI and it was fine getting both picture and sound through the HDMI.
Then bought a Samsung LCD LA40 a 1080p LCD Display. With the above DVD player I do not get sound and the screen goes Pink in color and the picture is solarized. When I connected the Toshiba HD DVD Player it works fine and I get sound and good picture using the same HDMI Cable. Please advise.
It sounds like the HDMI port on the back of your Marantz is damaged. if
you know for sure that the HDMI port works on another tv still you
might just use component connection because the visible difference
between component and HDMI is not very recognizable.

Depends on what type of ports your HP has and what type of ports your Samsung TV has. The easiest connection is to try to connect using the ports that they both have. Otherwise, if they have different ports then you will need some type of converter that goes between the two of them to make them communicate.
Most computers have a VGA port, does the Samsung TV have a VGA Port? New computers have a HDMI port, does the Samsung TV have a HDMI Port? If so you the connections that are alike or you will need a converter.
Once you have them connected, you just have to select the Input on the TV. Most times if you use VGA then you select PC or Computer as the input. There should be an HDMI input selection if you use HDMI connections.
Reboot the computer and the display might appear on the tv. If not you will have to hit some keystrokes to toggle the display between the computer and the tv. Most times on the computer you will hit the FN function key and one of the F1 thru F12 keys that controls the display on an external. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct Function key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display.
None.All Plasma tvs designs are alway have high heat output and consume alot more A/C power energy than any other tvs designs out there.Tvs like CRT-tube tvs,DLP tvs -Projection tubes and projection lamps tvs,LCD-flourescent tubes tvs as Liquid crystal display screen tvs.All these tvs designs are all good tvs designs to buy but the pictures display and screen lighting and the sharpness of the pictures never have and able to compare high enough qualities as a display picture on the screen output to a Plasma screen tvs,until now LED-tvs are LCD and LED screen display combine to make it better and brighter technologies and now are good enough to compare to a Plasma screen panel tv.So buy a LED tv will get less heat output and comsume less A/C power energy too and it is good enough pictures qualities too.To compare too as a plasma screen panel tvs output.
Hello First off i would determine if the same thing happens when the cable box is connected directly to the TV with the hdmi cable.
If the picture goes out get a new box from your cable company.
If it works fine then its time to call Marantz
My Denon avr 4310 does a similar thing and after a lot of research it seems that the problem is with how digital signals are sent through the HDMI cable and how the control board of your receiver processes those signals.
Here what I mean
HDMI is meant to simplify connections by transmitting video, audio and CONTROL signals through 1 cable.
The problem becomes when you introduce a "middleman" in this case your receiver the control signal doesn't always get interpreted correctly.
My TV has the capability to "turn off" the "control" signal coming through the cable if yours does try that first (i have a sharp 52" led) this solved some of the issues.
My receiver has the capability to accept different inputs and merge them so here is how I get around the problem.
1. I use HDMI for video signal but also use the optical for audio this allows me to send the "complete" hdmi signal through the receiver and to the TV this complicates things but also allows you to get audio through your tv speakers so if you want to watch something late at night you aren't waking people up when the receiver gets loud. This stopped things like the video flickering or turning off.
You will have to play with your menu's to see if you can do this on your unit.
How to fix this easily? Dump HDMI and use component (red, blue green RCA's) for video yes its still HD and yes you will have to run audio separately. but it eliminates all the digital processing issues that receiver manufacturers haven't worked out.
I was pretty upset when I spent $1500 for my Denon receiver and Denon then told me that HDMI doesn't always make anything better.
Ive got 3 samsung tv's (lcd, plasma, DLP) and I use HDMI cables on all of them. Its the only way to get the full potential out of the tv. When you use the red/white/yellow RCA cables the signal is anolog aka "old technology". Component cables are good but HDMI is the best. HDMI is a digital signal and thats what all the components that go with the tv should be run on. If your dvd player does not have an HDMI output I would suggest getting one that has that output. As for the cable box most require you to upgrade to digital cable in order to get one with an HDMI output. If you dont want to spend the money on new components and run what you have now the picture will stay mediocre at best. Good luck hope this helped

anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.
