Unplug the TV power cord for 60 seconds. It needs to be rebooted like a computer.

Problem with Vizio SV421XVT


I am also having the same symptoms for my SV421XVT. TV works great except all HDMI ports are not receiving signal. Devices work through the AV Ports, and TV reception is fine. New Roku box is also not working through HDMI but works with AV. Wish I had a solution to this.


On a another forum for another TV it was suggested that boards need to be replaced. I hope I can get these boards for a reasonable cost.

I see only two potential HDMI sources - Cable and DVD. You have three possible inputs to choose from. BTW: Composite Video is also HD in an analog form. Keep it in mind for the future.

You have an HDMI Out for feeding one input on the TV.

Ponder why all the devices have separate (and multiple) high-end audio and high-def video paths. This is what I do...

NO signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops' and it gets expensive zig-zagging a signal all over the room especially if it only passes through a device on the way to another one with no improvement. K-I-S-S is the word of the day. Run the BEST version of any signal directly from its source to the BEST electronics that will present it to you for consumption.

We have a Samsung Smart TV. We cannot get the signal and have installed a Digital Satellite Receiver. We have a Magnavox VCR and a sony DVD Player. We owuld like to attache the same to our TV and watch...


Hi there,

Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.

Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.

As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).

Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).

Hope this helps...

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Hello

Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
YPbPr(480i/480p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

InputDTV
This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
Ok.

I can't get a sound from my yamaha rx-v367. my tv is lg le5310


Last update: 05/02/2008
Connect the audio outputs jacks from the TV to any available audio input terminals on the Yamaha receiver, other than the phono input. You can use any analog audio Left (White) and Right (Red) inputs on your receiver such as the DTV/CBL, SAT or VCR input. There are no special settings needed on the receiver, other than selecting the correct input. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on the TV. Consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output audio to an external source. If youre TV has a digital output (Optical or Coaxial) it can also be run to one of the digital inputs on the Yamaha receiver, such as DTV/CBL or DVD. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on your TV. As always, consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output digital audio to an external source.

NOTE: When the source of the audio signal is coming from an HDMI device connected to the TV, the TV may not output in 5.1 surround sound.

Our 42" Vizio will not display/play sounds when


Hello

One board takes in the HDMI as well as the other signals. Sometimes part of the board breaks and that is what sounds like has happend in your case. This is a fairly common problem and most people tend to just live with it. Others sell thier tv and a few find the number of thier board to see if one is available on ebay or shopjimmy. If you are comfortable with electronics the board is not hard to replace.

Im sorry your HDMI broke....

I hope this helps

All 3 hdmi inputs dont receive signal from my blu ray and hd receiver


If you are absolutely sure that everything is hooked up correctly and the tv is on the correct input, then you will need to replace the main board. You can find them new or used on ebay here...

You may want to try a different hdmi cable first to make sure, but it sounds like the board may be bad. Good luck!

HDMI inputs do not show a picture. They worked but now do not. They display the setup program from the Onkyo AV receiver via HDMI output, but not when the receiver is pushing any other signal via the...


This is likely a problem with the receiver not the projector. If the setup screen from the receiver is displayed through the projector, then the projector is functional. If the actual signal is not displayed, then the receiver is not sending the signal. The setup screen is generated inside the receiver and is injected later in the video path than the input signal. Try a direct connect from the signal source (other side of the receiver) to the projector. Again, if that works, then the problem is the receiver.

Onkyo TX-SR606 takes up to 30 minutes to display 1080p


Please don't rate me for this. Onkyo has been having voltage problems with their HDMI boards in several models. Yours is one of them. They first instructed techs to replace some capacitors, then add some capaictors to repair the voltage problems. Now they want us to replace the HDMI boards but I have yet to receive any (on back-order) Sorry for the bad news.
