Hey everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me out.
I'm having a problem that I *think* has something to do with an HDMI handshake issue on my receiver.
I have a Mitsubishi DLP 73738 just got delivered on monday.
The problem is after I turn the TV off, once I go to turn it back on, it doesn't want to pick up a signal from the HDMI port. I have several HDMI devices going to the Onkyo SR607 receiver, and a single HDMI cable feeding the Mits.
Once it finds the HDMI signal, I just get black screen with the occasional flicker of a white line. While I'm doing this I can still see the menus just fine and I can even load up the Vudu apps and watch anything there just fine. Switching to Ant gives me snow, if I switch back to HDMI the same black screen shows up. Changing to various devices (Tivo HD, Xbox 360, PS3, Cinematube) which are also connected to the receiver via HDMI does nothing, just a flash of blue and then back to the black screen with occasional white line flicker.
If I unplug the TV and then power it back on, it will work again. I've also found that if I go to the menu and do a factory reset, the HDMI begins working again, but of course all my settings are lost. I've tried turning off the CEC on both the TV and receiver and still no luck. I've also tried all 3 HDMI inputs on the TV with the same results.
For the record this TV replaced a Toshiba 42" LCD, which would occasionally start up with just a black screen. I thought the TV was just a POS since I would turn it off and back on and the picture would usually come back up. However, now that this new TV is having a very similar issue, I think the problem has to be with the receiver.
Any help is appreciated.
