Westinghouse 1080P 42" LCD TV - HDMI stopped working
My westinghouse 42" 1080P lcd hdmi ports just stopped working. I've tried plugging into different HDMI ports and none of them work.
This happened before and then it started to work again suddenly.
My HDMI ports still do not work after many resets and unplugging the power cord. All other inputs work. I currently have my DVD and cable box hooked up to the 3-wire component input. Note that this unit is a refurbished unit they sent me last month after my new unit failed 6 months after I bought it.
Does anyone have any insight here? I am not returning it, so if I cannot get it to work I'll just suffer until it fails.

I know this is late, but this happens frequently. If anyone else has the same problem try unplugging the TV for 60 seconds. Plug it back in and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds.
That will reset the TV.
You should see the Westinghouse logo come up and the HDMI should work. This has happened twice with my TV in 1 year.

You should never try to connect any cables when the devices are on. Always try to connect inputs or outputs after switching the devices off manually. Looks like the input port has gone bad. Try switching off the monitor, removing the plug and leaving it for 48 hours and retry. If you notice problems still, it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician.
Sounds to me like you are trying to use a composite hookup or a generic HDMI cable. If you get the official Microsoft HDMI connector it also includes phono audio outputs and an optical audio out for 5.1 surround,
That HDMI connection hub port it some how got short and it dead.Tries other HDMI connections hubs.If all are like that they are all dead.All HDMI hubs ports connections are link together.If one dies usually all HDMI hubs dies together.Than ur tv Tuner signal board will not have anymore HDMI hubs functions connections at all,none of the HDMI hubs will work again ever.Have happen to mine Samung tv,so now i have to stop using HDMI hubs all together.
If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.
If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.
