Question about Televison & Video
The HDMI ports quit one after the other. Can they be repaired or replaced?
That's highly unlikely!!! More likely is that the cable is having problems or that someone mistakenly changed the picture i the TV from HDMI to regular reception. If the HDMI ports are changed to regular TV reception they don't see the HDMI ports only the regular video ports!

You have to use the scart connector for on screen menu settings. Go to the video option and enable HDMI and/or match resolution output to your set.
You did not mention the model of the TV so here is another scenario,
Just because the TV is 1 year old doesn't mean that it is a 1080p capable, you could have set the HDMI resolution settings to 1080p and you will not get any picture if your set cannot process the information.

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..

Just reset the TV found out how here: http://www.danielcoburn.com/uncategorized/westinghouse-1080p-42-lcd-tv-hdmi-stopped-working-fix/
Hold the power button for 10 seconds.

I know this is late, but this happens frequently. If anyone else has the same problem try unplugging the TV for 60 seconds. Plug it back in and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds.
That will reset the TV.
You should see the Westinghouse logo come up and the HDMI should work. This has happened twice with my TV in 1 year.
