Is there possibly an answer to this problem: I purchased a Magnavox MDR535H new, when it first came out. I've always used only the component terminal connections to connect it to my Panasonic Viera plasma TV (2011 model.) I recently thought I'd try out the HDMI connection to see if it produced a better picture than the component connection. I was not able to get any signal to output from the HDMI connection to the Panasonic TV.
I did try a reset by shutting off both the TV and the MDR535H, - unplugging them from AC power, connecting and reconnecting HDMI cables etc.
There is no functionality at all in any of the MDR535H HDMI settings, adjustments etc. There is no signal output at all from the HDMI connection to the TV. The TV just displays: "No Signal"
This is always the status of the machine:
The MDR535H menus can only be read on the TV's screen by selecting the - also connected - MDR535H component output connection. There is no signal at all being received when TV's input is set to the connected HDMI output of the MDR535H.
In the MDR535H HDMI setup menu, the following setup options are grayed -out and non functioning: 1. Format, 2. HDMI Audio, 3. RGB Range.
"fun link" (HDMI CEC) is active, and "on or off" can be selected. I tried both options but neither made any difference in trying to get an HDMI signal output from the MDR535H.
The HDMI button on the remote does nothing when pressed. Nothing is changed or displayed on the MDR535H display window or the TV.
Again, there is never a signal output when using the HDMI connection on the TV - Nothing appears - not even a Magnavox screen saver etc. And there is no sound either.
Yes, I do know from testing the HDMI input on the Panasonic TV that it is "on". - and it is set to auto detect. The connected TV's HDMI input works perfectly when other HDMI devices - ROKU, a computer, or a blu-ray player are connected to it. The TV's HDMI input's automatic connection and identification functions work perfectly with all other devices. The HDMI cable is fairly new - premium quality and it works perfectly when using it to connect other HDMI devices.
I also tried getting a signal with the HDD drive running - playing an HD recorded title, also tried a dvd playing a movie - still no signal at all is being sent. All of the MDR535 HDMI functions appear to be dead.
Thank you for any helpful replies to this problem. Sincerely, Dennis
