Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello and sorry you're having problems.
One thing to note is that even though an HDMI cable can work perfectly when connected directly from Source to TV (Cable Box to TV), this does not mean the cable is still not the problem when using a receiver, since ALL AV receivers use an HDMI repeater, which is not as strong of a signal as that directly from the cable box.
Can you please tell me how long the HDMI cable is?
Also, if you try and pull up the receiver's Setup MENU, does this display on the TV normally?
Hi there, I’m Scott, I have owned a home theater installation business for 10 years now. I see you’re asking about a home electronics issue – I think I can help you, as I have over 20 years of experience in this area and have spent much time troubleshooting similar systems.
I looked over the history or what has been tried etc. I think the next step I would try is unplugging power on everything for a couple minutes. Then plug back in but leave off. Wait plenty of time for cable box to boot. Double check all of the cabing (HDMI to an input on the receiver, and HDMI from Monitor out on receiver to TV. Then power on the cable box 1st. Then turn on the receiver, and wait a couple seconds, then turn on TV. Let me know what happens.
You've tried I believe to get the setup menu or something from the receiver on tv.....? Have you also tried running a dvd player or something through the receiver to TV?
know you have tried multiple receivers, and its unlikely they are all bad.....but have you plugged any of these receivers to another TV to see if you can get a display?
