Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

Hello, I have a samsung hd tv (bought it a few years back) model SP56L6HRX/XAX. It has one HDMI port but it doesn't work. We had never used it before, and tried to plug in a media player with and HDMI cable to the TV last week but never got it to work. It didn't even recognize that there was something plugged into the port. In the source list HDMI was still shadowed even though the cable was connected and the unit on. Is there a procedure to activate the port? Or is it faulty?

SOURCE: HDMI connectivity

I have the SA8300HDC STB from Time Warner. I get this error from my DVD recorder, not from my HDMI connection. I've read that the error is due to copy protection. The only solution I've read about has to do with a new Samsung Set-top box from TWC. Funny this copy protection error didn't ever come up with my old VCR connection to the HDTV. TWC apparently told a lot of people that the problem would be solved by a software update from TWC in October 2007 & then in December 2007. Guess TWC isn't sure what the problem is but everyone who has mentioned this Samsung cable box has reported success with their HDMI connection.

SOURCE: No HDMI on the source list, i have a Virgin Media

One of a few things are happening. If you are connected to the TV via the HDMI port and it doesn't become highlighted then either the main board on the TV is at fault, the HDMI output on the media box is not working (try on another TV if possible) or the HDMI cable itself is bad.

SOURCE: i cannot get a picture on the screen of my tv. I

Hi
Firstly and would remove all the leads from your TV and check them. If after checking your HDMI leads etc... and its still the same then i would reset the TV to the original Samsung settings. This is completed on your remote control by the following........

Turn your tv to standby, on the remote when in standby press the keys on the remote in the following order........ INFO.........MENU..........MUTE.........POWER ON.

You will now notice the picture comes on with the engineers settings in the background. With the direction keys on the remote scroll down to number 12 (RESET) Then press OK or the right direction key, Your tv will switch off and load the Samsung factory settings. Switch the TV back on and go through the setup procedure.Once completed then try your HDMI again.

If it is still failing then there is a strong possibility that your Eeprom IC on your main AV Board is corrupt and needs replacing. This should only be attempted if you have good soldering skills as they are Surface mounted and very small.
My advise if your skills are not that good is just to replace the main AV board (Scart Board) these usually sell for around £50 but WILL solve your problem.

I have gone trough everything i know here that would cure the fault, most times one of the above three will cure this, but im afraid other times its just time for a new AV board.

Hope iv helped some people out here.
Any comments or thumbs up appreciated.

If the HDMI input is failing you will need to ring Customer Support or Get a New TV because if its not outputting then The HDMI may not get Prosecced (sorry about spelling) And make sure you have checked its the Correct port and that there is no Blue-Tac or dust in the port ( that ussually solves this) If all else fails Use a Hairdyer and give it a Big clean :D

How do i connect my hdmi cable from my ibuypower desktop to my sansung led tv?


Make sure the input on the TV is set to hdmi port 2. If it doesn't automatically view on the TV, you have to go into the graphics card adapter settings to set the view to an alternate monitor (your TV). Normally there's also a hotkey command as well (normally one of the F# keys) to switch between displays

All hdmi connections not working on a samsung ue40c8000 every thing else seems to be ok. done a factory reset does this sound like a new board costly? regards. Norman


The tv Samsung refurbish main tv Turner signal board will set u back like $120-130 bucks + shipping and handleling and u must have to have some basic mechanicals skills like take things aparts and putting it back togther again to fixed this tv just for the used of those HDMI hubs ports again.My questions to u is?Does ur tv used 100% must require those useages of those HDMI hubs ports.Not just used the Samsung tv as is.My Samsung tv have the same problems.I just work around it by skipping all the useages of all those HDMI ports hubs of the tv altogther.Most poeple just used about like 3 HDMI ports hubs for like a HD cable box or DVR cable box and a PS3,WII games systems or Blu Ray DVD player.All these devices can go through hook up for like a RCA component cables hook up like AV1,AV2 and last one a HD hookup by a RCA component cable just add 2 more components wires like a green and purple connections or just buy a set of RCA components cable that design for a HD output.I did that,must more reliable set up too.Because those RCA components cables set up have more plastics in it connections for insulation holes for little shorts and sparks better than those HDMI ports hubs and HDMI cables barely help and the plastic for insulation is a joke almost non exiten.Those all dam HDMI ports hubs are all link into one path way on the circuit board,one dies or got shorted all dies and get shorted out.

We bought a new samsung 32" flat screen TV. Our HD cable box is connected to the tv using the red/yellow/white cables. Is there an alternative way to connect my Wii without unplugging the HD box...


You'll need to purchase an HDMI cable and use that to connect your hd box to your tv. Your tv should have several HDMI connections on the back to facilitate the hookup and you will not have a true HD picture without that cable. You can buy this cable from the same place you bought your tv or www amazon.com as well as many other electronics supply stores, hardware stores, or places like Kmart, Walmart, Bimart, etc. You can also buy a multi port Rh connector box that you can run multiple components through and just push the corresponding button for the component you wish to operate.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

Compatibility with Samsung LCD Display


It sounds like the HDMI port on the back of your Marantz is damaged. if you know for sure that the HDMI port works on another tv still you might just use component connection because the visible difference between component and HDMI is not very recognizable.
