Hey Guys, I'm having some problems with my JVC RS2 and I was hoping someone could offer some advice.
As some background, my Pioneer receiver blew about a month or so ago and I just got it back from repair today. After hooking everything back up, I was getting no picture from my Projector. At first, I thought the receiver was still blown somehow, but I then ran an HDMI cable straight to the RS2 and I still got nothing.
The projector is "projecting" and displays the HDMI 1 box on the top right, but it says out of range. I have tried switching the cable to Input 2, but get the same result. I have also tried a separate cable and tried different input devices (PS3, Xbox, and Blu Ray player).
Something else odd, which may be unrelated: When I try to go into the projector's menu using the remote, the menu displays for a split second and then immediately closes. If I open the menu using the Menu button on the projector itself, it stays open longer, but still closes before I can look at anything.
Any ideas guys? I've tried just about everything I can think of at this point, but hopefully I'm missing something. It's kind of heartbreaking, since I've been without my theater for a month now and then this happens.
Update: I went and did some more testing, and it looks like the HDMI board on the projector may be fried. I hooked my Wii up using the Component outputs and it did fine.
I also think I might know what happened. DirecTV recently installed a dish in my front yard. My mom was over helping with some housework the other day and it electrocuted her when she leaned up against it. When I went to hook the receiver up today, I had already hooked in the HDMI cord from my DirecTV box. When I connected the projector's hdmi cord to the receiver, the entire thing sparked. After that, I noticed that the DirecTV box was super hot and wouldn't turn on.
