Do other HDMI connections work?
Hi, I am having problems with the HDMI input on my S27A350H.
The HDMI port on my first SA350 worked fine with a Samsung DVD player for 8 months and then intermittently failed - either producng a black screen leading to power saving whilst dvd was playing or failing to establish the HDMI connection on power-up. The VGA input to the monitor worked fine during all this period.
Since then I have replaced both the cable and the DVD player and eventually became convinced the problem lay with the SA350, which I had replaced under warranty. I am dismayed to discover that I still cannot get a reliable system - the current SA350 also fails to reliably find the HDMI connection at soft power-on.
Occasionally it will correctly display the DVD player home screen and allow normal operation, but then will fail at the next turn-on. I have tried all combinations of powering up the DVD player or screen first. By running a seperate screen from the AV output of the DVD player, I tried forcing the DVD player to 1080p resolution, which didn''t help.
The only thing which seems to help is to completely remove power from the SA350 and then start up.
I am my wits end with this problem, can you help ?
