HDMI I am new to the world of LCD's, HDMI, upconverting DVD players, and so forth. I have everything hooked up properly, but I'm not getting any video on the tv screen. Also, the audio is continuously cutting in and out (mostly out). Do you have a suggestion or solution?

    I own the 42LG50 LCD TV, and I am trying to attach my Toshiba DR-410 HD DVD Recorder.
    No matter which HDMI port I attach it to, I get "No Signal" displayed on the screen.
    I am beginning to suspect HDCP has smoething to do with it somewhere, but the 42LG50 states it will accept that informaiton.
    What gives?
    Anyone else have this problem and overcame the issue?

Hey buschgator,

If you've made all the appropriate connections, there are a few things that you may wish to try to resolve the problem.

First, you'll want to make sure that your TV is set to the proper input station. Some models may require that the TV be set to an external input to display any kind of signal from an HDMI input source. Input stations can usually be selected by pressing the "Input" button on the TV's remote control, but may also only be available through the TV's main video menu, depending on our model.

Second, you may be encountering an HDMI "handshake" failure. Whenever two devices connected by HDMI cables fail to recognize each other (the handshake fails), users may not see any images displayed or encounter poor picture/sound quality. This type of issue can typically be resolved with newer electronic devices by unplugging each device and power cycling them (turn them off then on).

Third, you may want to try another HDMI cable to make the connection. Like all other electronic components, HDMI cables have the potential to be defective right out of the box, though such instances are generally few and far between.

Should none of these suggestions help, you may wish to refer to your TV's owner's manual for more information. Some older HDTV's may not support HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection), and as a result you might need to contact the manufacturer for alternative solutions.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

My Toshiba remote control se-r0077 sometimes works to control the DVD player and other times it doesn't. I've tried new batteries and the problem still persist s


One of the best ways to check if an infra-red remote controller is working properly is to look at it using a camera. (a webcam or phone camera will work) The camera will see the infra red radiation as visible light. If the LED lights up (on camera) consistently when buttons are pressed, then it may not be the remote at fault, but rather the receiver in the DVD player. Most of the time though, it IS the remote control at fault, and these are usually easy to get working again.

Couple of things to check are:

1) the battery terminals...
Batteries can leak and corrode the terminals in the battery compartments. Signs of this include rust, green coloured contacts, or a crystalline deposit. If you see any of this then clean the contacts using metal cleaner or some methylated spirit and cue-tips.

2) Broken wires connecting battery terminals to the circuit board...
The soldering in some remotes can be rather poor, and wires can sometimes come loose, especially if a remote has been dropped or bashed about a bit. Unscrew the remote and check everything is connected properly


3) Dirt under the buttons...
This can prevent a button from making contact with the circuit board properly. Unscrew the controller and separate the rubber button pads from the circuit board check for dirt both underneath the pads AND on the metal contacts on the circuit board. Clean as required with methylated spirit and cue-tips and then reassemble.


Hope that helps!
