Panasonic tv hdmi port not working

Hey males, I’ve run right into an odd problem via our 46 inch TC-P46S30 Panny Plasma TV. For some factor, one of the HDMI ports isn’t taking a signal. Tbelow are three, two on the ago and on on the side. HDM1 and also 2 are on the back, while 3 is on the side. 1 and 3 job-related fine, but 2 doesn’t seem to take any kind of signal from any kind of device I try. I’ve looked through the settings and also the hand-operated, and also am contacting Panasonic support as well, however I assumed I’d hit y’all up and see if y’all had any kind of advice or suggestions.

Unplug it for 15 minutes or so and then offer it a crack?

Have you just tried one cord? If so, I’d recommfinish trying a cord that you absolutely understand functions.

That sounds neat, I’ll provide it a whirl.

Have you only tried one cord? If so, I’d recommend trying a cord that you absolutely recognize functions.

I did, I have actually the PS3 plugged into HDMI 1, which functions good. Plugged into HDMI 2, TV says it has no signal. Plug it earlier right into HDMI 1 aacquire, functions choose a champ.

I had a trouble with an oldish TV sporadically taking a signal from miscellaneous gadgets.

Finally, I acquired a DHCP stripper (they offer them as “hdmi splitters”), and also given that then I’ve had actually no troubles connecting whatever before I want.

Additionally you could simply gain an HDMI splitter for your HDMI port 3. Monoprice sells some. It’s a little of a pain to need to hit an additional switch thought. It must come via a tiny remote as well.

Yeah, that was my next step, just a pain is all.

I think you more than likely intend a HDCP stripper, not a DHCP stripper.

Had it occur on among my plasmas as well ago when costco still had the lifetime retransforms. . I now have actually a hdmi -switching receiver, so just ever use hdmi 1 now.

Which one execute you use?

HDMI switches should all perform the very same thing at this allude right? So, my referral is to simply grab a very rated one on Amazon with a remote control so you don’t need to obtain off your ass (and can regime your Harmony or whatever). Like this one? http://smile.amazon.com/Kinivo-301BN-Premium-wireless-adapter/dp/B0049S6ZUS/

Or am I lacking somepoint, guys?

I’d quite carry out that than pay for the whole TV to be repaired for one HDMI port, however I was simply asking if there was any kind of method to test or resolve an HDMI port on a TV.

Oh, shit, sorry, completely misconstrued.

You can take your TV acomponent and also the majority of likely you will certainly never before number out what bit capacitor (probably it’s that) is broken. If you have actually the best luck the port will have actually end up being shed where it’s soldered onto the board, and also you can repair the solder and have it occupational aacquire. It would definitely be easier to perform this than find a damaged component (or figure out it’s on an IC that you cannot deal with, ever)

If you aren’t comfortable working on your very own TV, you might have the ability to find a repair shop that deserve to do what I explained, yet they will definitely charge even more than the $15-30 you’ll pay for an HDMI switch.

The opportunities your difficulty isn’t hardware-associated at this allude I think are nil.

Edit: I don’t understand about plasma technology, however CRTs back in the day would certainly have caps in them that might easily kill you, long after disassociated from power. If plasma has similarly sized caps (skeptical, honestly) then I would not recommend cracking open up your TV for any kind of reason.
