I was sitting here watching my TV, and all of the sudden, lightning made your power glitch a little, and now my receiver doesn't seem to be sending passthrough video. Audio works fine, and the receiver seems ok functionally, other than I don't get video.

I tried taking the HDMI cable from the output of the receiver, and plug it into my PS3, and the cable and TV seem fine -- video works fine that way.

So, either some setting got reset somewhere, or it's fried.

Any ideas? Maybe some other troubleshooting I didn't think of?

Thanks in advance.

If anybody stumbles upon this, the problem seemed to be a loose HDMI-out connection in the back. The plug is seated properly, but for some reason, there is suddenly an angle that the cord now loses connection. If I put some upward pressure on the cord, it picks up the signal.

Not sure if/how this was related to lightning, but that's when it started happening.

Hi jader201, try another HDMI cable.

Another option is a HDMI cable with locking retainer or HDMI lock adaptor.

Thanks, JChin. I'll definitely keep that in mind if I start to have recurring issues with this.

You might consider using 90 degree HDMI adapters, they are available on line for about $5 each. By angling the cable downward, it relieves the weight of the cable itself from the chassis HDMI jack as they can be easily damaged by heavy cables..


Just my $0.02...
