HDMI ports stopped working

by catters07 / April 7, 2014 8:02 PM PDT

Hi l have a Samsung UA55ES7500 purchased approx 18 months ago and in the last few days it has started having a problem with the HDMI ports. When first switched on all appears to be fine but after several minutes the picture starts to flicker then the picture disappears completely. I have tried all the resetting and powering down but this has not fixed this problem. Has anyone else had this same problem and if so how easy was it repaired? Being a TV at the high end of the price bracket around the $3000.00 dollar mark i would of thought the thing would last longer than 18 months. Any help would be appreciated

I have a similar problem with a PN60F8500AFXZA

My TV was just delivered a week ago. On Friday it said I had no signal, but it could detect an HDMI cable. Just no signal. tried every port and tried connecting directly to my PS3. Still no signal. My other TV is getting a signal.

Our problems may be related. Hopefully someone will be able to help.

When I see this, I try this advice.

I didn't create this one but read it from a tech's reply.

Unplug it all, remove power and then give it a 10 minute wait. Apply power, the one HDMI you need to work and try again.
