Any chance it may be an HDMI incompatibility issue, which may be fixable via Raspberry firmware update...?
I assume it's not the same problem that the plug doesn't fit the socket.
We'll need more information to diagnose further. Can you connect to Pi and enter command (either with another diplay, or ssh in through network) ?
Can you captrue and post the edid.
possible config_hdmi_boost could help.
Getting latest start.elf file from github could help (or use Hexxeh's firmware updater).
Thanks for your initial feedback. The problem is not with the connector.
When I connect the PC on the HDMI input, it works fine. When I connect the RPi on the same input, it goes into sleep mode. When I switch the monitor to VGA or Component, it gives a "no signal" message. When I switch back to HDMI, I don't see such a message. The screen remains blank for a few seconds, then a message appears shortly notifying that the monitor is entering Sleep mode and the monitor LED turns orange.
I have installed the Arch Linux ARM distro and I can successfully log in.
I configured the config_hdmi_boost parameter in /boot/config.txt and it didn't make any difference.
I also tried Hexxeh's firmware updater. It didn't make a difference either.
Which command do you want me to enter and provide you with the outcome?
