    I have three different cables, and the hdmi input just doesn't work any more. I've had to convert all my wiring to component... any idea how to fix this without sending the entire tv in for repair?

    I changed my cabe to brand new gold plated top of the line cable and it still doesn't work. I have used a DVI/HDMI cable adapter to use the TV as a monitor for a PC in a conf room. This worked fine for a little over a yr and then one day it no longer works at all.

    HDMI worked fine for nearly 2 years then without any signs of pre-imminent failure it quit. I tried different devices with different cables. I tried to perform a hard reset with Infocus tech support but I am not so sure the hard reset actually happened since my previous settings were still resident.

    Any suggestions?

I've had that problem before and it turned out that, although it looked absolutely fine, it was my HDMI cable which was not working. After getting a high quality cable, the problem went away.

My Insignia Blu-ray DVD player and our Panasonic DVD player are playing only the sound with no picture. We put the correct imputs on the TV. They were playing fine a few days ago. We have Charter cable....


Sounds like the input board on the tv fried. (45-65$ fix if that's it)

Try the same two devices on different inputs , ie change from hdmi to component , or just use hdmi 2 instead of one, you get the idea.

Make sure the devices dont work on other inputs on the tv.

Then take a different device , like a 3rd dvd player and try it.

If nothing works in that input but works in other inputs the tv input board might (likely) need replacing.

If the third fresh device does work in that input , it is both dvd players or the cable you are using. (try to use a different cable in the tests than the one you have already used. )

How to connect dvd to tv.


Good day!!!!

Please try this procedure on how to connect your DVD player to your TV..


Follow this instructions:


1. Check the back of your DVD player. It will have up to three different types of outlet connections enabling it to be linked to the TV. The most ideal is an HDMI connection, which is a thin rectangular outlet marked "HDMI." It provides the highest quality signal to your flat panel TV. If your DVD player doesn't have an HDMI outlet, you can also use a standard RCA outlet. This consists of three round cable jacks labeled with a color coding. The yellow jack is for the video signal while the red and white jacks are for audio signals. Some DVD players may have an S-video outlet as well. It will be a circular jack with a number of holes. While not as effective as the HDMI jack, it provides a clearer picture than the RCA cables.

  • 2. Look at the back of your flat panel TV for a series of "In" jacks corresponding to your DVD player. There may be a number of them under different labels (Input 1, Input 2, HDMI 1, HDMI 2 and Component Video are common). All of them work, however, and all can carry the DVD signal into your TV. Simply select an "In" jack that matches the DVD outlet you have selected and note the precise label.
  • 3. Connect the "In" jack from the TV to the corresponding outlet on the DVD player, using the proper cable (RCA, HDMI or S-Video).
  • 4. Turn on the TV and press the input button to select the jack connected to the DVD player. (The exact label for the input button will vary by model. Some will say "Input," while others will say "TV/Video" or "Signal.") A menu should pop up onscreen giving you a list of jacks in the rear of the set. Select the jack connected to the DVD player. The name of the player brand should appear on your screen.
  • 5. Place a DVD in the player and watch as normal.

    Problems using HDMI


    I've had a problem with the HDMI connector, had it replaced twice while my VPL-HS60 was under warranty. This connector seems very fragile, the first time I was not getting any signal from HDMI, so the repair shop ordered a new connector and replaced it, a couple of days after the it was not working again and found that they had to solder it back on the board. If you're not getting a signal from HDMI anymore that could be your problem.

    HDMI Input Failed


    I've been seeing alot of this out in the field. The cable is thick and heavy, after awhile the HDMI connectiion inside the set comes apart and breaks from the main board. In my opinion the only difference between Component jacks and HDMI inputs is the thought of reducing the amount of wire mass in the back of the unit. It's more pleasing to the eye. If it's under any kind of warranty, call a servicer. The main PCB will need to be replaced. If it's not under warranty, use component input cables, you'll get the same performance from your set and save a few bucks.
