Video Inputs Not Working AGAIN

The Video 1 and Video 2 inputs on my P50 are no longer working. The S video inputs that are tied to these inputs no loger work either. However all other Component inputs work. Not sure about the HDMI inputs because I don't have anything plugged in there. Could it be that section is bad?? If so where could I get parts/info to make the repairs. I live in a remote area and Service is always a nightmare. This is the second time I've had this exact problem with a Vizio P50. The first time it was under warranty and repair man on the phone said it happend to this model all the time, but it was going to take him 3 weeks to get here so we just returned it to the vendor as defective and purchased a new one,(Bad idea) Now out of warranty what next?

    After about a year, the Digital HD1 input quit working. I switched to Digital HD2. It worked fine for about a year then it quit working. I have now switched to Analog HD1. It is working but I want to use the HDMI inputs.

    In both cases, the screen showed the "NO SIGNAL" message. When the second HD1 input quit working, I reset the TV via the maintenace menu. This seemed to work for 3-4 hours then it quit working again.

The video input boards are some what of a nightmare to try and fix and or diagnose.. Lots of memory, video scalers and processors that are next to impossible trace without schematics.

The component working dosent suprise me as everything gets converted to seperate syncs eventually and your past that point. So you can rule out your scalers and processors.

The good news is that this is all low voltage stuff. I would suggest testing the boards voltage regulators, will be 2.5v, 3.3 or 5v. If you find a burnt out reg, the problem is somewhere around that area.. But check ebay as there are tons of people with cracked screens selling there boards for parts.

    Hdmi input not working

    Video is different from HDMI. From what I have seen you should have video inputs and component inputs. instead of trying these video inputs, look for tv/component button on your remote or tv settings.

    Component inputs are for video only, and when connected through a receiver then the television also must have a video input coming to it from the video out from the receiver. If you want audio that will be a separate connection from the xbox to the receiver either by digital coaxial cable or optical cable, or composite.

    JVC 40 inch LCD digital inputs (1 and 2) no longer works. Standard video and component cable inputs work, but not HDMI. Please help

    This TV has a sensor that deactivates the inputs when light is sensed. perform this procedure to correct it:

    1. press "Sleep" button on the remote
    2. while "Sleep timer 0" is showing, simultanuously press "display" and "video" button on the remote
    3. you should be in the Service menu of the TV....if not you should do the steps again
    4. select "self check" from the displayed options.
    5. when the "self check" menu is displayed, Power off the TV.
    6. unplug and replug the TV.
    7. Check the digital input.

    if the input never worked for you, it is possible that you have the DVD/Bluray/whatever set up incorrectly. I don't think this TV accepts 1080P resolution so make sure it is set to 1080i or lower

    I dug out my old ps1 got everything together and when I start it the screen on the tv remains blue. The television is on the appropriate channel. I can hear the console working inside but can't...

    The blue screen makes me think that it is on the wrong input. You said channel. If you plug it into the composite inputs then it will be called "video 1" - "video 4" or however many inputs you have. So make sure again its on the correct input, and make sure that the cable you are using is clean. You can clean it using rubbing alcohol or something. Even if that game doesnt work it should have a PS1 loading screen

    Yamaha HTR-5240 Receiver channels are mixed up

    Sounds like your input switching IC is bad. THis is a shop job,major solder work and most likely a parts order. All the inputs tie into 1 intergrated circuit"ic" and the microprocessor see the signals and switches the output on this IC when you change inputs and when this IC goes bad you can have an outward symptom of not switching,only 1 input works or 2 or more inputs on at the same time. If this receiver cost several hundred dollars it's worth repair if less expensive unit you may want to look around for a new unit

    Component Video inputs do not work

    I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

    Composite and s-video inputs stopped working

    You may have shifted the input board a little while replaceing the IC's. Double check every plug and connector, not just by visuale inspection, but by going and removing and replacing every connector. I have had problems like this in the pasy and have learned the hard way, everything is not as it looks. Good Luck
