Have you tried different resolutions, say 720p, 1080p and 4K?
Have you tried using different cables?
Have you tried another mini HDMI or micro or whatever the Pi 4 uses to full size HDMI?
And, for fun and giggles, have you tried using another OS like Ubuntu instead of Pi OS? (https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/
) as linked here on Raspberrypi.org/Downloads
I am not sure what you mean by different resolutions. Do you mean the different modes available through tvservice -m? In that case, yes, I have tried them all. If you mean setting the tv to specific resolutions, then I am not really sure if that is possible.
The cable works fine when I plug the pi into my old tv. Also it is the original cable that came with the pi. Surely that should be of adequate quality to drive a tv?
I have not tried a different OS. That might work, but since I use my pi for retropie, it is not a real solution for me.
Of course you can't change the resolution your TV/screen operates at, I'm writing about the source resolution, the output of your Raspberry Pi. But you've already tried it, so we can forget about that.
Even though we should assume the original Pi cable is of decent quality, you should try another cable. I can make no guarantees here, of course. But trying a different cable is never a bad idea in all tech stuff.
So you want to use Retropie, yes, of course. But we have to figure out if you have a problem with your hdmi cable or your Raspberry. You should really etch a Ubuntu or whatever image to a microSD and then check, if your Pi works with your TV. If that works, it's a Retropie issue.
What I'm trying to accomplish here is to determine, if your hardware works alright. If your hardware is fine, we might focus on the eventual software problem.
