How do I get HDMI ports to work Properly in My Samsung TV?

Good day,

I have a Samsung PL42B430P2D plasma TV and have serious issues regarding connectivity.

1) PS3 doe not show output at all through HDMI, component output however is normal in both video and sound.
2) PC connectivity through HDMI does not show any output at all.
3) Direct TV HD DOES show video output but NO SOUND AT ALL.

HELP PLEASE, I have not had this kind of issue with any TV, it is usually plug and play.

Hi JaysonGud,

By the sound of it, I think your unit will need servicing. But just so you know, if you want Samsung support, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for Mexico. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So while I can't help you directly, if you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung Mexico portal for support on that product: http://www.samsung.com/mx/support/model/PL42B430P2DXZX

A few come back when

If you follow those TV forums you find a few sets come back if you unplug everything from the TV including the power and wait a few minutes. Then you apply power and ONE HDMI connection for a test. There is some discussion that Intel's HDMI chips can get confused and lock up.
