I'm hoping someone can help point me in the right direction here. I plugged my laptop into my tv via HDMI the other day and the screen was flickering. Shortly thereafter, none of my hdmi ports would work. When pressing Activity on the remote, there is no option to select any of the 3 hdmi sources I have plugged in. Furthermore, I am experiencing the following when accessing the Menu:
Unable to select 3D Mode
All HDMI Inputs are listed, but unable to be selected (they are greyed out)
I gone through the process of resetting the tv and inputs but nothing has changed. I've tried multiple hdmi cables and a variety of hdmi input sources (pc, ps3, directv) and nothing seems to activate the ports for any type of set up. I fear that I'm probably screwed here, but am hoping there might be light at the end of the tunnel somewhere. I am trying to avoid dealing with a tv repair company, as I know they charge ridiculous rates.
If it is the main board and it probably is, it's simple to replace. Similar to installing a motherboard in a computer. There's a couple of steps to be performed afterward through the service menu, it's in the service manual. I would first try to install the latest firmware.
You problely should have use the MENU 123 reset first. That resets back to factory and it might have solve the problem. A new main board often requires you back up some adjsustments in the service menu and then restore them to the new board. The MENU 123 only loses the consumer level changes, not the original factory level.
