Component 1 input with Toshiba upconverter player only shows distoreted grayscale images. When I tried component 2 input, all is fine and dandy.
Question.....is the circuit board fried. I have 2 months left on my 1 year in home warranty.
The HDMI input is hooked up to the Dish Network HD receiver.....
Thanks for any responses, and if possible email me personally at my AVS address?
Contacted Syntax technical support and explained problem. They are sending out a new input board and expecting it to be installed by ME! I questioned this recommendation and was assured removing the 4 screws behind the TV would reveal the board and it was a simple remove and plug in procedure.
Anyone know for sure it this is the case as I don't want to damage anything?
Update 9/9/06 below:
New AV board DOES NOT WORK after installing correctly. TV powers up with a light blue screen and NOTHING else can be done to change the mode via remote or set buttons.
Syntax Technical Support is sending out yet another board for me to install and if this doesn't work, they've offered a replacement TV.
Frankly, I'd rather NOT do the exchange as only 1 component input is fried but the thought of the others going on the blink is disheartening to say the least.
Saga goes on........
Received 2nd AV Board and after installing.....no change, the component 1 input still fried.
Now I'm concerned if the replacement "refurbished" unit would be any better?
