Replace the connection box

Is there an upgrade box to replace the original one? There is no hdmi connection only componet cables. Also is there a owners manual to download. Thanks

    I see in the owners manual it shows a hdmi connection, but its not there on my tv. I have 2 tvs one connected to hdmi and the other to thru componet and I must say both look good, but the hdmi looks better. More like 3d. One would have to think that in order to add the hdmi you would have to change out the main board and maybe some other parts. Im not really sure though.
    I was hopeing that I could pull the old box off and add a new box, but the manual shows the hdmi is not part of the box at all, but by the pc connection on the back of tv.. They must have made more then one variation of this tv. thanks

    Hi,

    No problem buddy.

    High definition is always the best output signal where lcds and Plasmas are concerned.

    It appears that they made 2 or maybe 3 varients.

    and Obviously different price ranges, you may be able to get a replacement-upgrade on the set.

    Happy-viewing whatever you decide to do.

I'm pretty sure that pretty much no Tv's have an upgrade to HDMI.

While looking for a manual I noticed that the version on the maxent website does have a HDMI possibility.

How do I stop the aspect ratio from auto changing on my flat screen set up as the monitor for my computer?


When you set it to just scan the source will determine the scan. I would remove the bose from the unit and connect the cable or sat box directly to the hdmi in of the tv. if the problem persists check Samsung web site for software upgrade. If upgrade does not fix replace the main circuit board.

WD-65734, cable DVR, audio receiver and digital remote: picture goes black for 1-20 seconds and then returns, but audio is stable. Status led and lamp led are NOT on. Any suggestions? Thanks,


well are you using an hdmi cable, cause if you are there is a known issue with the communciations where it will lose communication if you reremove the hdmi cable then turn the box off slide the cable back into the box then turn the box back on it should restore the pic and audio just fine. if this is your fix then its one of three things a faulty hdmi cable or an out of date hdmi cable meaning the version is no longer support for the video production. or it's the hdmi output on the cable box. or it's a poor seat/faulty hdmi input on the tv. easy fix is try to replace the cable or use componet cables (red/blue/green) if this is not the setup of your tv/cable box then i will need more info.

When I turn the tv on the screen lights up for a few seconds and then there's a clicking sound and the screen goes black


ours would do that i wont guarntee this will work but try using a different connection like we had a HDMI cord running to our cable box and one day it just went black so i unplugged the tv and still had the other componet wires hooked up to the box i thought it was the cable box so i tried another one and switched the input on my tv and it worked after a few days i could use the HDMI connection again not sure y but hopefully this is what your problem is.

The tint keeps changing from a red base to a green base and back again, what could be causing it


Hi Check the componet cables, especially if you are using HDMI connectors. Also if you are using a cable box disconnect if from the tv and run the cable signal directly to the TV to see if problem persists. If all cables are connected tightly and secure, then replace the main digital board.

I cannot get the Input 3 HDMI port to work. The Input 3 Componet videoworks, but when I unplug the componet video and put in HDMI port nothing works. I do have something else in the HDMI Input 1 port...


Hi.

To start ensure that each time you connect or disconnect the HDMI ports both TV and connected device are off.

Also ensure that HDMI input is active, as detailed here.

HDMI connectors carry voltage, and connecting the HDMI cable while TV or device is on may easily damage the HDMI port, making it unusable.

The HDMI 3 and Component 3 are separate input. The component input may work, and HDMI port may still be defective.

To test the port do the following:

Disconnect TV power cord, and connected device (eg. Receiver, DVD etc.).
Leave units disconnected for five minutes.

While power is disconnected, test connecting on port three a device that was previously working on HDMI 1. Also use a cable that you know is working.

Connect back power with HDMI cable already connected. If HDMI 3 is still not detected, then the port is defective.

In that case ring Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual.This model is often advertised as only two HDMI inputs. Call Pioneer to ensure the third port can be enabled.

When i hook up my hdmi cable box how do i get my stereo to run sound..? or can i..?


HDMI is audio and Video in the one cable, if your stereo has HDMI in and out you can run it from your box into your stereo then into your TV, but only if everything is supported by your componets, I would suggest, HDMI into your TV, then from your box, stereo or optical into your stereo, by just using RCA cables. ALSO remember with audio compontes, more is MORE, more cable better quality (not length but size)

No Picture on LG 50PC3D


No power?
Unplug power cord- safety first!
open backcover
check powersupply- top center right is p.s.
top left side of powersupply you'll see 5 capacitor 3300uF 10V.
see any pop up on top? replace it All with same rate or 16v is O.K.
do not use temperature rate 75c. Use 105C.
if you know how to solder. you could save $300 at least!

Cannot get a connection with HDMI input


When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.
