Question about JVC Projection Televisions

1 Answer

HD-58S998 This TV gets very finicky when you change connections on the HDMI inputs (there are 2). Because of cord length issues, I reconnected the DTV satellite from HDMI 1 port to HDMI 2 port using the new cable I bought (all was fine), then connected the DVD player with the the old HDMI cable to HDMI 2 - no picture; now there is no picture or sound no matter which cable I use, which device I use, or which port I use including going back to the original configuration. Everything works fine if I use the component hook-ups to inputs 3 and 4. This also happened during initial installation, but the authorized tech guy called support and he told me "it was booby trapped"-something about the HDMI ports shutting down to protect unauthorized work on the TV, or words to that effect. Anyway, anything I could do myself to reset these ports without another service call?

    I resolved this issue after spending some time on the net and elsewhere. Yhe problem is not unique to thisproduct, but is common to many JVC products. The HDMI ports are disabled if a light reached the board, perhaps intended to prevent problems by removing the rear panel with the TV on - however, just using a flashlight or shoplamp externally to view the print on the ports, as I did, will ause the HDMI ports to disable.

    to continue - to re-enable the ports, you must enter the service menu

    Using the remote control:

    1) press sleep - the timer should read 0; while this is still displayed (you only have about 5 seconds);

    2) press display and video status simultaneoulsy

    3) the service menu will appear as follows:

    1 video adjustments

    2 self-check

    3 xxxxxxx



    Press 2--a bunch of codes will appear on the screen that I am sure has meaning to the tech people

    4) Turn-off the TV and leave off for 1 minute

    When you turn the TV back on, the ports will be re-enabled

Trying to use ps3, even after using hdmi cable on input 6 or 7, it says check your device output and i see green lines on my screen?


hi
There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video.
ok

My Sony Projection tv is HD ready, but when I connect the cables from the HD receiver, I have a black screen. Thank you Kevin Davis


myrtle1996,

With so little information I will have to make alot of assumptions to help you. Are you hooking up a HDMI cable? If so it is straight forward. Plug one end into the HDMI connection on the receiver and the other into a HDMI port on the TV. Note the port designation (HDMI 1 or 2). Enter the menu on the TV and change the input to the proper HDMI input. This should make the unit work.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I have a D52W20. I bought a HDMI cord thinking it was what I need, what is it that I DO need for HD?


To correctly get HD, you need to satisfy three things.

First you need an HD tv.

Second you need an HD signal. IE.. HD cable box, Blu Ray etc..

Last, you need either HDMI wires or Components wires.


Hook the HD box up to the TV with component wires(I believe you tv doesn't have hdmi connections), go to the correct input and enjoy.

Cant get our HDMI to work on our JVC HD 58S998.


First, contrary to popular opinion, HDMI cables connect to a tv are not the best way to connect the two. The HDMI technology has flaws that often shows up as sound problems.

If your TV has the capability for component connections, use them. It will take 5 cables, 3 for video and 2 for audio. You will get superior sound and video. The 5 cables terminate in RCA type connectors and are much cheaper than an HDMI cable.

I hope this helps and solves your problem. :-)

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

I just purchased a Sherwood RD 6513 reciever, I'm trying to connect a hd cable box (motorola dch 3200), dvd player (sony dvp ns710h) and a rca hd tv (l32hd41). I connected hdmi cords from both components...


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.

for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.

if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.

I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525, and when the Directv installer came out, he said that he could not connect the box to my tv because he didn't know how to get my tv in HDMI mode. From what I am reading, it...


Your right connect the HDMI output from the directv receiver to an HDMI input on your tv. Change the tv input to the HDMI input and it should work. If your tv does not have HDMI input then it should have component input indentified as red blue green connectors on the back of tv. This is for video only. Connect the red and white for audio using the yellow/red/white cable that was included with receiver. The red blue green cable is also included with receiver as well as the HDMI cable. Did this installer educate you on how to use your directv equipment. If you are paying for HD access but your receiver is not connected the an HD input on your tv then you are not getting what you are paying for. This should of been resolved during the installation. The installer either is incompentant or just did not care. Call directv and demand them to make their receiver work with your tv if this means a field supervisor tech being sent out to correct this.

Mitsubishi WS-65315 plug in HD comp shows as 480i


Greetings,

In the input assignment menu make sure that the DTV (the only 1080 input on this tv) is set to Y/Pb/Pr and see if that fixes your issue with at least the HD-DVR.

BTW- the HDMI information "1080i HD can only be selected if TV has HDMI inputs". is not correct.

Mitsubishi HDMI connection trouble


I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.
