I have a 5000 that I've had repaired several times. I had the loader replaced (twice) and the flash memory. Now it has a new issue. It works fine via component and coax for audio, but I get no signal (per my Integra DHC 9.9 or directly to the tv) via the hdmi out. For obvious reasons (HD audio) I prefer hdmi.
Has anyone experienced this? I know it may be as simple as a bad hdmi jack, but I'm hoping it's not the main board starting to go. I've had enough of paying Samsung to repair the unit and I was thinking about taking it to a local repair shop until I saw a pic of the main board and saw that all of the output jacks are part of that component.
Any tips are appreciated.
FYI: This occurred after installing FW 1.6. Not immediately as this was a secondary player so I installed it, tested it and all was fine. The problem occurred several weeks later when I was going to watch some hd-dvds. The first sign was that despite setting it to 1080i (my tv's max resolution - I have a Mitsu 62827 which handles the deinterlacing internally and will not accept 1080p unless you tell the tv it's a computer which eliminates most of your picture adjustments) it would continually default to 1080p. after numerous bouts of hooking it up via component, resetting it etc, I managed to get it to stick on 1080i, but still not hdmi signal. If I leave it off for a while and turnn it back on, again, it switches to 1080p.
