Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

well, sorta works... if i try to use the console the signal doesn't stay, it goes black then back on occasion. And if i actually login to the console, it goes back to no signal on that TTY, can change to other tty and get that tty. And then i can't change to another TTY... so just very strange behav...

Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

Edit: I removed all of your lines, commented out the pi4 specific parts(only dtparam=audio=on is in the file) and can get same output from tvservice and tty console 2-6 on HDMI2. another update: I can get tty2-6 on HDMI2 if i comment out the PI4 specific part of config.txt( #dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d a...

Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

i attached the edid.dat file in case that's useful. Ok, i tried this with JUST that block in the config.txt as well as just adding those 5 lines after the commented out HDMI_SAFE. Both ways i can ping the IP and ssh in and get the following: pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo tvservice -s state 0xa [HDMI CEA (...

Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

Other than buy a new tv, no other options to try to debug or figure out why this model of tv isn't working with the raspberry pi?

Thanx

Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

Yes, it is. If you said that you heard of someone who did a hand stand while plugging in the pi and it worked... i'd somehow figure out how to get into that position... I did as you asked, and nothing. I then did same with the plug in the surge protector. then tried it again in the wall. never any s...

Re: No HDMI output on RPi 4 (but it boots)

I received 2 raspberry pi from canakit last week(ordered 2nd to make sure something wasn't wrong with first) Neither can output anything at all to my Samsumg UN4N5200 tv(full hd, newer model) My laptop can display perfectly fine at full hd.

Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

Ya, I've tried to rule out every possibility.

I think I've lost 5 pounds jumping up and down and going to TV for the past week :)

Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

Hello other spelling of Geoff, Thanx for the reply. Yes, that's what makes me think it must be something specific to the handshake/communication/something between the pi4b and the samsung tv(which has full HD capabilities and is only i believe 2 years old, bought it 3 months ago) I have the Pi4b boo...

Re: No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

Well, have now replaced everything in the mix, except a new tv. That's not really an option. New raspberry, 2 new hdmi cables, monitor works fine. I can't imagine the SD card itself causing any sort of problem, esp since it works fine. So the problem certainly seems to be between the raspberry and t...

No HDMI output to Samsung 5 series tv

Fixed the tv model number, had it as UN50 by mistake. It is a UN40N5200 I've searched and found a ton of people with similiar issues, but none of the resolutions work for me. I've bought new cables, and today went out to buy a monitor to make sure that there is no issue with the ports. Working fine ...
