a friend of mine just blew is 65 inche Panasonic hdmi input board. the board is around $500 + labor.
and getting a estimate will cost you about $50 , if you have $50 to waste because the shop already know before opening the tv set that it is the hdmi board. just go with the other connection, and hope the rest will last.
with todays trough aways, electronic, most are made to trough in the garbage ounce they brake.so is tv set, appliances and many other device. and they call that progresse???


Progress indeed.
And then they have the balls to charge you an Eco Fee for every electronics purchase.
I wonder whose pocket that money goes into?
end of rant :)

The Eco fees go directly into Provincial Government managed programs. Here is the link to the one for Ontario:

Did you try unplugging everything including the power cords for the tv, cable box etc...and giving it 10 minutes and then re-plugging stuff in?

My HDMI connection was not working around a month or more ago (Samsung TV) and I googled it and tried the advice above.

It worked.
