I think you may want to try to replace the HDMI port it might be that the HDMI that you have is frayed or an internal wire is ripped

hope that i have helped with your problem!!

Cannot access TV. Screen shows HDMI 1. Invalid format.


Is it possible that whatever you have plugged into HDMI 1 requires a firmware update ? for example a dvd player etc

Or perhaps the tv cannot handle the resolution if this is the case you will want to set it at what the computer manual states what it can handle with HDMI

If not perhaps Unplug the tv for a few minutes, and then let it boot back up and trying your hdmi inputs again. This should reset the microprocessor.

Best of luck :)

My tv says invalid format when i connect my ps3 using an hdmi cable


Your PS3 is sending a 1080P signal to a TV that can only handle 720P or 1080i. Connect the PS3 using the A/V cables, fix the resolution and then go back to HDMI.

Cant connect to pc


It high definition digital signal. You will need a HD cable not a vga (that is analog).
Check in you tv manual. It should give you options of what cable to use. May need the HDMI cable.

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck
