Question about Televison & Video
I belive the tv is 55 inches and it's a flat screen. I would like to hook up the HDMI to the tv, but I'm not sure if I need different cables. I cannot locate a HDMI port to plug into.
If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port on it then you'll not be able to use the player. Some players have hi def output jacks, but it isn't true HDMI so using a hi def cable would defeat the blu ray players resolution when viewing a blu ray disk.

I can confirm that replacing these 4 capacitors worked perfectly. I
work in construction so i am not a technician or anything. I did not
even have a solder iron. I have photos of the board if anyone would
like to see them. Took me about a hour to replace the 4. I had to use
(2)35volt & (2)50volt cause radio shack only had 2 of each and it
works like a charm. This TV has been in storage for 6 months until i
found this article on the problem. Cant say thanks enough!!!!!!!!!!

Probably a handshake problem with the cable box. It is common for cable boxes to have HDMI handshake problems. Hook the box up using the component cables and you should be fine

I encountered the same thing using the HDMI interface on my new TWC cable box (Motorola DCX-3200). After a little bit of research, I finally fixed it by changing the digital audio mode in the cable box using this procedure:
1. Be sure the TV is on and connected to the cable box.
2. Using the cable box remote turn power OFF.
3. Immediately press the MENU key on the remote. The USER SETTINGS menu should appear on the TV screen.
4. Select the ADDITIONAL HDMI SETTINGS >>> menu item.
5. The ADDITIONAL HDMI SETTINGS menu will appear.
6. Scroll to the AUDIO OUTPUT item and select this.
7. Change the setting from AUTO to L-PCM.
8. Return to the main page
9. Using the remote, cycle power OFF.
10. When the cable box is turned on again, you should be good to go.
I realize these instructions are specific to the DCX-3200, but there may be a similar setup option available in your cable box as well.
The problem here is that the cable box is by default configured to use Dolby Digital audio, which requires an additional 10dB of headroom to deal with the boosted LFE channel. If the cable operator hasn't taken pains to set the system up correctly (and most haven't, apparently), the digital audio level sent on the HDMI interface will be approximately 11dB down from normal analog line levels on the HDTV channels. Changing to straight linear PCM sets the TV receiver audio level on the HDTV channels to match the levels on the non-HD channels.
The only problem with this fix is that if you intend to feed a Home Theater receiver that uses Dolby Digital processing with the cable box output you will lose the Dolby encoding feature and be forced into straight 2-channel stereo. For a simple installation like mine where I'm just feeding the TV, this fix works fine. If you have a more complex setup that takes advantage of Dolby Digital features (when it's available in program material), you may have to live with the problem.
For a technical reference on why this happens, see http://www.megahz.com/specimages/Dolby/LM100%20Cable%20App%20Note%2011-05.pdf
Hope this is useful.
