HDMI Cable Repair

I pinched my HDMI cable between the wall box and dry wall during installation which kinked the cable. I have not tried to use it yet but when I do I, should I expect problems. If so, how do I fix it? I found a repair kit online to replace the male connection.

Depending on how hard the cable was pinched you may or may not have problems HDMI cables are very insolated and it takes alot to damage one. However if there are problems the repair kits that you can buy online are very usefull and you will probably have to cut and replace the pinched part on the inside of the wires but the kits should have step by step instructions if not feel free to contact me for detailed instructions.
Good Luck,
Chris

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized


Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

On my sr606 receiver when I hook up the hdmi to the tv i sporadically loose the signal. when I hook the cable box to the tv it is ok. there seems to be a problem with the hdmi interface


Try this. Check to see if you have the cable going round and accute corners. Sometimes the placing of HDMI sockets on the unit mean that the cable is forced into a sharp turn to route it to the cable box. HDMI cable is touchy when it comes to routing. For example an HDMI cable coming out the side of a TV and having to do an immediate 90 degree turn to get to the cable box is enough to scramble the signal. HDMI cable must not be kinked, wound up tightly or forced into tight angles. The worst offenders for this are curiously the more expensive cable as they have a tougher outer shielding that makes them more prone to situations in cramped and tight corners. If you really need to get round a tight corner, try a cheaper cable. Hope this helps

HDMI picture is saturated in the wrong color


The problem is generally the cables, period. If there is a condition whereby the cable was bent, kinked, overheated, or the end damaged in any way, this problem can exist. Many times when a cable is attached to the device, it is cross-threaded or left loose. If the contact is not 100%, you can experience this condition. I suggest that you obtain NEW cables and connect them tightly and firmly in place. This should eliminate the problem, UNLESS the male connection on the device/s have been compromised.

Flickering video with Denon AVR 1910


I had the same issue with my Denon AVR-1908.....It turned out to be the cable box, not the receiver. I would suggest you unplug your cable box, remove and reseat the cable card,HDMI cables, and finally the cable line itself. Make sure the wires are not frayed or otherwise pinched.

Good luck....

Can't get HD channels selected on tv. Tried auto search with HDTV port connected and the menu selected to HDTV


Hello, the HDTV input is what you would use if you were not using a cable box.
You should connect your cable from the wall to coaxial input on the cable box, and connect an hdmi cable from the hdmi output on the cable box to the hdmi 1 input on your tv and then switch the tv to that input.
