HDMI Input Problems – TV Not Showing Image – TV Repair Help and Troubleshooting

Basic troubleshooting and replacement tips for HDMI inputs that are not working.
CLICK HERE for Replacement Main Boards:

In this video we will discuss the basic functions of an HDMI port with your TV and also what you can do to fix it if it is not working properly. Here is what a main board looks like on our Samsung thirty two inch LCD TV.
As we look at a closeup you can see we have highlighted the two HDMI ports. Different TVs will have different amounts of HDMI ports. These ports are responsible for taking in audio and video through an HDMI cable from a source such as a blu-ray player, cable box, satellite box or gaming system amongst others. If you are having trouble receiving an image, video or audio from your HDMI port, you can take the source video and test it on a different HDMI port. For example if HDMI port one is not working properly, then you can take the cable and test it in HDMI port two to see if it is working correctly. If the source video works correctly in HDMI port two, but still does not work correctly in HDMI port one, then you know that you have a problem with HDMI port one.
If your HDMI port is bad, it is recommended that you should replace the main board in your TV. You can find your main board part number and then search that number on our website www.shopjimmy.com or you can find your TV model number and then find replacement main boards on our website. If searching by TV model number, you will want to be sure and match the part number on your current main board with the replacement main board on the website.

    I have recently purchased a FireTV from Croma. I have connected a Sony DVD player, a cable TV set top box and a internet video set top box to the 3 HDMI ports in the TV.

    2 ports are working fine. The third one only picture shows but I am not getting audio. It is the Sony DVD player.

    What could be the reason?

    Older type Changhong TV will play Netflix with PC but the computer keeps freezing and has to be restarted. This does not happen when the computer is not connected to the TV via the HDMI cord. Tried the Macbook Air. There is no picture on the screen at all, just a mishmash of colours. I have tried resetting the TV and a few other fixes to no avail.

    Have a Sunbrite Veranda tv. Worked fine for a year. Recently cable box would freeze whenever did on demand. Contacted Optimum. Tech came. Said box is too old and the connector is wrong. Connector was RG6 and the line was RG11U. He took out the RG6 connector off and said he did not have proper one to replace it. Put back old and left. Then the screen was green. It came on but had a green hue. Called again. New tech came. Changed the connector to an RG11u and changed the box. Problem persisted, but now there is no sound. So have a picture with a green hue and no sound. He said it is the tv. Have now taken the HDMI cord and put it into a different slot on tv. Still the same. So took a small 32 inch tv outside. Connected it to the same HDMI cord. That tv worked. Did the cable guy fry my tv, if so can it be repaired and at what cost?

    Geez! I never would have thought to have such a difficult troubleshooting guide by switching the hdmi cable from one port to another!!! I guess this works for light bulbs that don't come on as well? I can plug a different bulb into that same lamp to find out if it's the bulb or the lamp??? I'm sooooooo glad I found this video! Now I can spend a grand on a main board instead of buying another TV for cheaper than the part is!!! This dude is trying to just sell shit! I'm a service tech for commercial kitchen equipment and we have a saying people like Jimmy! He's NOT a technician, he's a parts changer!

    If that is the solution to the question, then I most certainly wouldn't expect anyone who asked it – and was happy with that answer, to be trusted to take the back off a television set!!

    My 2012 Panasonic Plasma TV will not recognise hdmi output 1 from my Oppo bdp-93AU bluray player. This output uses a Qdeo video processor for higher quality. All the TV hdmi ports work fine but the TV simply refuses to display any image.

    Wd 73833. All HDMI ports not recognizing signal. I purchased another board from local t.v repair shop. It worked , until I turned off the set ,and turned it back on the next day. Unplugged from one port . And it worked on the other open port. So i watched mu cowboys game 2day. After the game I decided 2 test , by turning off t.v and back on. Nothing snow screen. Unplugged and went to third port same snow screen. FYI… I had the dreaded green blinking lite of death. Bought a new board replaced ot. Tv powers up great. Just need hdmi fixed. Any ideas
