Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues

I believe my Toshiba 32AV500U has an HDMI problem. When the Insignia Blue Ray player is connected but powered off the TV has a black screen and no audio when trying to watch Cable TV. If I remove the HDMI cable or turn the player back on, the TV behaves normally.

A PS3 connected via HDMI will not display any picture at all. When the PS3 is connected and powered on the Toshiba will not display cable TV. If the PS3 is powered off the TV functions normally.

The Insignia and PS3 work normally on another HDMI compliant TV and I've tried several HDMI cables.

Through trial and error I believe I've isolated the problem being with the television. Is there a fix for this or will I have to return the TV?

Thanks

The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.

Connecting my new samsung blu-ray player (bd-fm57c) to my toshiba theaterview tv.


I don't think that cord will work. HDMI carries video and audio signals, you might get video but probably no sound. You might as well try anyway though so here goes... The red green and blue plugs are your video and the other red plug and the white plug is for stereo sound. The yellow plug is just a lower quality video plug. So plug in the red blue and green plugs into the component video inputs on the TV then the red and white plugs into the audio inputs. DON'T plug in the yellow plug. If this doesn't work go to your local home theater store and ask for a receiver or switcher that will downscale high def HDMI to component video and stereo audio. You can probably pick up a cheap one for around $100. Good luck!

HDMI audio cutting out


Sometimes it might be the TV, sometimes it might be that HDMI cable having issues with that certain TV. Your best bet would be to get another HDMI cable and see if that helps.

Connecting a new vizio bluew ray player. No signal being received on tv when connecting into usb port


You should never connect a Blue Ray or DVD player to a TV through a USB port. Use a scart/composite/component/HDMI connection to connect the player to the TV.

HDMI would be the best connection possible, but most devices don't come with a HDMI cable. Go to any electronics store and pick up a HDMI cable for about 10 dollars/euros. Don't pay for overly expensive (I'm looking at you, Monster Cables) as they are a giant waste of money.

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.
