Question about Televison & Video
Hello experts! Last night the only two HDMI ports on my Samsung Plasma TV Model # PN50B430P2DXZA (2009 model 720p HDTV) broke and now neither work. We believe the TV was angled in too severely to the wall without ample clearance and the ports broke free from what they were connected to inside the TV. They both worked before the TV was pushed into the wall and are now are super loose and do not work. Hubby would like to simply buy a new board that has the HDMI ports connected to it rather than try to solder the HDMI ports back on. I would appreciate some help from this community in locating the correct part for this TV, as the parts websites I've visited were not non-professional-friendly. I have repaired numerous things myself (solenoid on washing machine, dishwasher parts, electronic ignition on stove) with y'all's help so please don't fail me now! :D Many thanks! Sherri
I would also just buy a new board .BUT keep the old board for parts! This way if anything goes out you can compare components on the board etc and figure out what's wrong and also use the parts for repairs when you need them. Some of those boards HDMI ports have the tiniest solder joints and you can easily bridge them make the board useless anyway. These things are way more fragile than the old CRT tv's. Just be a little more careful next time.

damaged lcd screen are not repaireable but are replacable. mostly expensive depending on its size. handling, shipping or transporting units with lcd such as plasma tvs should be given extra care.

I would be Leary of cheap boards, $159 is a reasonable price for an oem replacement. i would not do it myself.

Testimonial: "Gave a quick, honest response, thanks!"
I recently had the same problem with my vizeo hdmi port # 1 going bad. Tried everything to fix and called vizeo. There solution for a master reset was turn off tv and unplug from the wall. then hold down the power button for 30 secs and let go. plug the tv back in and hold down the volume down and input select buttons down on side of the tv for 15 secs. release the buttons and turn the tv on after powering down all the components connectd to the tv. If this does not work they told me you need to have it sericed for a bad hdmi input. Hope this info helps anyone out there. It didn't work for me. Its a bummer cause the tv is well taken care of and only 18 months old. Best of luck to all others.

This is quite tricky as it was working until last night and suddenly stopped receiving signals. What can happen wrong?
Do you have any other Player or other HDMI cables to try out. Sometimes the cables would be damaged or PC may fail to detect the HDMI.
Try this out from Philips helpdesk where there is new SW and FAQs are available.
Let me know if you are not able to upgrade the FW (if you do not get the support on ugprading)
