Some testers do not test ALL the wires. Some will only test pair 1 and 2. You may want to use a DVM (Digital Voltmeter) set on the ohms function and check continuity on each of the eight wires from RJ-45 to RJ-45 connector or use a cable tester that will check all the wires. If you use a DVM check 1 to 1, 2 to 2 etc. for continuity. Good will read 0 ohms, open will read infinity or OL on some meters. 90% of all cable problems are poorly crimped or broken wires at the RJ-45 connector. It is difficult to be sure which end has the bad connection so you may need to change BOTH RJ-45 connectors. Do one, then check the cable, if it doesn't work, do the other one. It is a 50-50 shot. I prefer and encourage the rewiring color code using the EIA 568A standard. Starting at pin 1 the color code would be orange-white, orange, green-white, blue, blue-white, green, brown-white, brown. You don't have to do it that way, but you must make sure that the same color wire is on the same pin on each connector. If all else fails, you can go to you neighborhood computer shop for help in installing connectors. It takes a lot of practice to do it right. Hope this helps
The HDMI input on your TV receives digital audio
and uncompressed digital video and audio from an
HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a
This input is designed to accept HDCP program
material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-
compliant consumer electronic devices (such as a settop
box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).
The HDMI input is designed for best performance
with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.
To connect an HDMI device, you will need:
• one HDMI cable (type A connector)
For proper operation, it is recommended that you use
a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter
difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4
HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.
Separate analog audio cables are not required (see
illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.
However, if you connect analog audio cables with
this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will
not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.
To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset
properly, it is recommended that you follow
• When turning on your electronic components,
turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or
• When turning off your electronic components,
turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.
To connect a DVI device, you will need:
• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable
(HDMI type A connector)
For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-
DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
