KDF-E42A10 connection Issue

Hi -
I'm having an issue with connecting a PS3 through the HDMI port on a KDF-E42A10, from a working PS3.
I saw that you recently offered some advice on an HDMI connection issue with a KDF-E42A10 set. Your initial recommendation was either a software upgrade or a card replace, but I wasn't able to see where those steps were located. Would you please direct me to where I can find that information?

I appreciate any assistance you can provide.
JT

    When I use the HDMI connection the picture goes in and out intermittedly.

    The problem I have is when I select, video6 (HDMI) where my ps3 is connected, on the external inputs menu the TV freezes. I then have to shut down the TV and unplug to reset it. The problem is persistent but not always present.

How to fix issues whith component outputs on haier hlh26atbb 26 in. lcd ?


When you make the connection with HDMI are you changing the source or input key on the television to activate HDMI port? If you don't activate the corresponding source you connect to and leave the TV in the TV mode, you won't actually see the device you are connecting. It's possible the TV does not support the 1080P from your PS3.

HMDI 1 and 3 do not work (why) ?


Since you did not mention HDMI 2, I assume you have that connected to something else, and that is working properly. The following procedure is based on that assumption.

First, turn off everything connected to the set, and the TV itself. Disconnect the HDMI cable from whatever is going to HDMI 2 (leave the TV end alone for now) and connect it to the PS3. If the PS3 shows up on the TV, the problem is most likely a bad cable. To verify, turn off the PS3 and the TV, then move the known good HDMI cable to either HDMI 1 or 3. If the PS3 works on those also, the HDMI cable you had originally connected to the PS3 is defective. I know there are some bad ones out there; there is at least one lot with a right-angle connector on one end and a straight connector on the other that has a very high failure rate.

If the PS3 does not work with a known good cable to HDMI 2, then the PS3 has a problem. Try using a component (RGB) or composite (yellow end) connection to narrow down what the issue is.

If HDMI 1 and 3 do not work with a known good cable or any input source (DVR or cable box), then the HDMI switching circuit inside the TV is defective. Since the set is "new" that would be a warranty issue.

The hdmi no is working


HDMI is a little trickier than most think. The signal has to be matched from the source to the TV. This is a little dumb but try this first. power down everything connect the cables (HDMI) and then power everything up at the same time. If it does not recognize the signal at this point I would look into a device to do the signal conversion. The product I use for this is from Key Digital.

Dark screen


Hi.

Check if the problem happens using different inputs and make sure that there is no connection issue.

If the screen is completely dark there is no power from the inverter. In that case the problem is inverter, PSU or digital board.

I have sharp 37 inch LC-37D44U MY PS3 is not working with it it green lights keep blinking power light and OPC. BUT THE HDMi ports work beacause i checked it with other devices. so i dont know why its not...


Does this happen when you input certain signals to the HDMI2_bing.gif ports? Or all signals (e.g. 1080i, 720p, 1080p, etc.)? And which ports are affected - side HDMI, rear component, etc.?

I had this issue and Sharp sent out a local repair tech to install a new main circuit board, then two weeks later, a new side board (where the side inputs connect into the system)... their first visit allowed my TV to accept signals in the rear HDMI ports (all signals worked well), but then I couldn't get a signal processed via the side HDMI port. At first, just 1080p would not display (caused the OPC/power green light blinking), and after a few days, any signal hitting that port would cause the error lights to come on. But as I said, eventually, a new side board resolved that issue.

Colours turns blue and green from HD channels


The most likely cause of your problem is the cable box HDMI output. If you have some extra cables, try connecting the TV to the cable box using the component connections. I'll bet your problem will go away. Don't let the cable company lie to you; I work on Sony TV's everyday and see plenty of cable box HDMI issues. Some of my customers have exchanged their boxes 4 or 5 times and still have HDMI issues. Your best bet is to use the component outputs or switch to Dish or Direct TV, as they DON"T have HDMI problems. If this solution works, be sure to rate it. Thanks!

Hdmi issue as well


Hello sushy99.
You need to do what is called a software upgrade. This will fix the problem. The software upgrade is free. I can tell you how to do that. There is another possibility that your HDMI board is defective. If after the upgrade, and you still have the same problem...then you must change that board.
