Sanyo HDMI issue

by Zach667 / December 11, 2013 5:31 AM PST

Hi, I have a blu ray e5400 from samsung hooked up to an HDMI cable to a 40" flat screen SANYO model DP42740. Yesterday it was working fine, but when I turned it on today, I noticed I have video, but no audio. Yes the HDMI cable is good, I checked with another one and it did the same. Yes I tried on PAM and the oh her audio settings and still no sound, yes I have even tried changing ports and turning in on and off with the tv being on and off. So I'm at a bit of a lose as to what happened. My tv now say "please use audio input 3 for DVI connection, but the samsung e5400 has no av ports so that can't happen. I checked with another tv with the same HDMI cable and it worked perfectly. That is a bit confusing why only video will show on the Sanyo and no sound, I tried a sat. Box and no picture or sound, the ps3 was the same. But if I use the same HDMI cables for the blu ray player to connect to my nintendo 64 through a small av to HDMI converter, the n64 will show up on the HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 with both video and sound. Weird. Any new ideas?

Power off everything. Pull plugs (all of them.)

Due to a terrible decision years ago HDMI might lock out connections until a power removal is performed. I remove power (AC plug) and HDMI cables then wait a while for the chips to reset. Then I plug in just what I want to test.

Keep in mind I never send 5.1 sound to a stereo TV.

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?
