Question about Flat Panel Televisions
Hey guys, thanks for your time, I have a 52lx177 regza cinema series television and am having major problems with the hdmi imputs not reading the hdmi cables at all or just for a little while and then dropping the signal entirely and me having to reset everything to get a signal just for the damn thing to do it again! I thought that it might be my direct tv hddvr box, which is why I have gone through 5 of them in the past 6 weeks, finally I decided to just keep my component cables hooked up to the tv and hddvr box instead because nothing is being brodcast in 1080 p on television anyway. Well guess what happened when I finally bought a ps3 and tried to start watching movies, THE SAME THING! Everything is fine for a very short period of time and then bam, the signal goes out and the tv says no video signal. If I turn everything off and disconnect the hdmi cable from the tv and then reconnect it I get picture again and things are fine but not for very long before the same thing happens again and again and again. I have tried over 5 different hdmi cables with both pieces of equipment so I know its not the cables. Listen, I love toshiba but if I cant get this problem fixed and soon I will never even look at their brand name ever again! I spent with warrenty almst 5,000. and to be going through this hell sickens me right now! Please help me with this, I am at the end of my patience and have lost enough time, money, sleep, and piece of mind. I thank you and look forward to talking to you very soon. chris grossnickle
I talked to Toshiba about his problem, this morning. They said they have never hear of such an issue. I told them the TV was less than 1 week old, and would hope Toshiba would do something in response to my alternative action of returning both my Toshiba HD DVD and 52LX177 for a new brand. They said all they can do is have me go to a service center for them to repair it. 1 week old TV and DVD, $4000, for repair; I don't think so. I talked to two different people a Toshiba regarding this, with the same answer. Very poor customer support, especially for a higher end product like this. I think I have no choice but to change brands.

It may have something to do with the resolution. I have a PS3 which
works just fine with my Sharp LCD, but when I bring it to my friend's
place and plug it in to his Toshiba LCD the screen stays black. It
stops saying "No Signal", but it doesn't seem to understand the signal
Fortunately, I have the auto-play option on so when I pop in a game it starts it automatically. Anything that normally runs at 1080p it's just a black screen, but for the games that run at 720p it works normally.
What you could try in this case is check the device sending the signal to see if you can force it to stay at 720p (while using an alternate video connector if needed, for example RCA cables), or maybe 1080i, not sure if that will help but it might be worth a shot.

I had similar issues with a brand new 46" LCD (Toshiba). The layout was cable box HDMI --> 7.1 2009 Pioneer Receiver --> TV. After hours of struggling including removing the receiver from the system and going direct (cable box HDMI to TV HDMI), still no signal. Then by pure accident I got it to work. Turns out the TV liked one HDMI cable better than another. I swapped my HDMI cables from the original wiring configuration and the TV came to life no problem. Running through my receiver no problem. I'm still leary of this TV but I'm going to let it run for now as I have a 2 year warranty from Costco.

SOURCE: toshiba hdmi ports not working
if you have spent almost 5000 on the warranty and it was for the same issue, i would notify them that the problem is not resolved and demand that they fix it for free or provide a replacement. this sounds like either the hdmi input connector is badly soldered, or the hdmi signal board is going out or overheating. if your tv has a fan for that area, insure that it is working.
