Looking for some help. I've had the W1070 for about 2 years now with no issues, it's been a great projector. About a week ago I went to fire it up and got "searching for source" then "no source detected". Splash screen shows up and menus show fine, just can't get anything to connect.
I've tried the following things but nothing has worked yet:
Switched the HDMI cable from input 2 to 1.
Tried power cycling the whole system down but that didn't work. Also tried reverse power up, so projector, receiver, then cable box, still same problem.
Reset the projector from the menu
Switched the HDMI cable to one I've tested to work
Directly connect a computer to the projector with multiple cables
Even tried removing some of the rubber surround on the HDMI cable to seat it fully
I then tried the component input and that worked. So the question is, is it possible the HDMI inputs just quit on me? And if I need to use the component input using the below set up, would it only show 1080i instead of 1080p? Is there a large difference in picture quality between the two?
Cable box > Receiver > below component converter > projector
