Help, intermittent problem, Black screen with Green edge on start up, LCD Samsung 6500

post #1 of 2

First, thanks for reading, this is an intermittent problem on start up. Any help in narrowing down the problem is gratefully appreciated!

About twice a week upon start up ( into my tivo ) I get a black screen with a green strip across the top & side edge of my samsung led tv. I've replaced the HDMI cables both the input from the tivo & the output from the receiver. We always turn the system on & off via the Harmony remote. I replaced the harmony remote. Everything except the receiver has current firmware.

my husband thinks the problem is the harmony remote software setup.

I think it's the receiver because if I turn the receiver off & back on the problem *all ways* resolves itself.

In searching the web I saw one reference to this issue on amazon (http://www.amazon.com/review/R2L2EGB22MW5DT/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#R2L2EGB22MW5DT ) which seemed to tie the problem to the TV & Netflix. I don't have netflix set up as I access everything on the web via my Tivo. I don't even think the TV has a Cat5 cable attached.

specifics of my system

Samsung UN55ES6500 55-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Slim LED HDTV

Onkyo HT-RC260 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver

Premiere Tivo XL4 with a time warner tuning adapter & external hdd

Logitech - Harmony 650 5 Device Universal Remote

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Integrated Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player
