Question about Philips 42PFL7422D 42 in. LCD TV
I have three hdmi ports on my phillips hdtv currently #1 is dishnetwork rcver (phillips hdmi cable) #2 playstation3 (ps3 hdmi cable) #3 xbox 360 (microsoft xbox 360 hdmi cable)
when i turn my tv on (usin port #1 -my dish is pretty much always powered on) i have a color distortion and no sound until i power on the either the ps3 or xbox 360 (no switch between video input is necessary).
same thing goes when either the ps3 or xbox 360 are on and my tv video input is set to the the coorisponding gaming system, i have to leave the game system on while switching back to the dish input... if i turn the game system off before switching the input on tv i will have either a black screen and no sound or the color distortion and no sound. once i have switched over to the dish i can turn off the game system with no problem.
recently i have added netflix to my xbox gold account and i am now experiencing another variation of the problem... sometimes while starting a new video on xbox live i loose sound, the fix for this has been to power off and power on the tv then sound comes back but the xbox shows a message "secured link lost" then "secured link restored"
i have had this setup for nearly two years and neither phillips or xbox has been able to answer why i have these issues... and to be honest this is just getting old and irritating. any suggestions other then using componet cables?
Common short the cover cap over the video & sound boards short out if you remove it the cap only (shield metal) it usually will fix this
