Hi all !
I got a problem with my raspberry model B when i plug it on a hdmi screen i got no signal but with the same sd card i can boot with hdmi and all with a model A. My power supply is a 850ma.

Your display may be on the hairy edge of working. I had a similar problem going from a Model B Rev 1 board to a Model B Rev 2 board. Worked on Rev 1 but not Rev 2. Try the HDMI fixes here first (In particular hdmi_force_hotplug=1).

It might be that the power supply is not able to supply as much power as it claims. This happens with some of the cheap units.

The model A uses less power than the B, so that might be why the HDMI works on that one, and not the model B. Have you another PSU you can try, or even another micro USB cable as some of those have wires that are too thin and won't provide the full power.

This is my config.txt and hdm force is already at 1

# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode

# uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
# and your display can output without overscan

# uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console
# goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus
# overscan.

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes

# uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
# no display

# uncomment for composite PAL

#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.

What RaTTuS said. If that does not fix the HDMI problem, then try and uncomment (Remove the #) from hdmi_safe=1 instead.
