HDMI problem with LN52B630NIF

by slcd630 / December 5, 2010 9:58 PM PST

I hooked up all my HDMI sockets with TV/cable, DVD and media player and they were working fine for the past few months. All of the sudden, 3 of my HDMIs stopped working on me. The remaining one is linked to the TV/cable box and it is working fine. I tried to connect the only working HDMI cable to another HDMI socket and it did not help. The socket recognized the HMDI cable but said no signal. I switched back to the original socket and it would work fine. I also tried to reset the tv by holding the "EXIT" button but no response. Probably due to different model. Can you help?

HDMI problem with LN52B630NIF

I might suggest going through the TV's Plug and Play option in the Setup Menu. That should effectively reset the television. I might also recommend unplugging the devices from the HDMI ports first, and then seeing if connecting them helps.

There's always the option for a repair if you're still in warranty. Registering on the site, if you're 3 months out of warranty will extend the warranty period for U.S. customers.

You can do that here:

Warranty repairs are also available through 800-SAMSUNG in or out of warranty, but if the set is out of warranty, then the repairs will not be covered by Samsung.

HDMI problem resolved by disconnecting HDMIs and power
by slcd630 / December 6, 2010 9:32 PM PST

Hi HDTech,

I tried those methods already and were not able to solve the problem. I read some other threads and found that this problem is not unique to me. As suggested from another thread, I disconnected the HDMIs first, then the power cord, left it overnight and reversed the steps to re-connect the HDMIs back to the devices...and guess what...they all work again! I do not know what causes it and why unplugging the power cord would help but it seems to be a problem that Samsung should address.
Thank you for your help and prompt response.
I also want to say thank you for the person who found this solution. It saves me from making a service call that may not resolve the problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
