This is the only problem I am having. It was ok until I messed with the set yesterday afternoon. Could it be on the wrong channel? There are 4 tv's in the house three of which say hdmi on them.Maybe I need a visit to get this back on track?
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 8 months ago.
Hi Barb

OK what you need to do first is unplug from wallpower the TV and the product you have going into HDMI 1 wait 5 mins then replug them both back in again let me know if that changes anything

Hi Barb

Well I rep lugged everything and I'm still getting the same result! Yesterday when I could get in the menu it said the box in the left corner meant the hdmi control was off but I found no way to turn it on.What do you think? I think it's screwed!
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 8 months ago.
Hi Barb

I am assuming you have a cable or satellite box plugged into hdmi 1?
So to eliminate the box from being bad if you can get something else like a dvd player in hdmi1 and let me know how the situation is then with that in that will make things clearer....

Let me know please

No DVD player It says at the bottom of screen no signal but it always says that when I first turn it on. Could I have hit the input button on the side of the tv yesterday and did'nt know it?
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 8 months ago.
Hi Barb

Yes it is possible your in the wrong input so please either press the input button on the remote control (you may need to keep pressing it until you see the hdmi1 or the input you have in there satellite\cable box)or press the one on the set if you dont see it on the remote either will do

Let me know
