HDMI? Gaming consoles have HDMI issues? What’s HDMI?
These are all good questions if you have:
HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. It’s basically a technical way of saying it allows for the transmission of high-quality video and audio between media devices via a cable. It’s what takes all that HD data and displays it as an HD picture and transmits it as digital audio.
So, if your console has an HDMI problem, it could be the cable or it could be the locations or ports at the ends of the HDMI cable that plug in to the console or the television or monitor. In either case, you should probably bring your console into 911 Phone Repair in Midwest City. Here, we’ll do a free, full diagnostic of your console, identify the problem with its HDMI (if there is one), and make the repairs right away.
Sometimes, when people think of gaming console repairs, they often think of hardware repairs or software corrections. Maybe even fixes that affect connectivity problems. Rarely do they think about cables or the parts those cables plug into until they check their owner’s manual.
The manufacturer will usually recommend you check the HDMI cable first as part of any troubleshooting you’ll do. However, it does say troubleshooting, not fixing. Sometimes it’s not as easy as just replacing a cable.
That’s where 911 Phone Repair’s free diagnostic service is a huge benefit. Let us tell you what’s wrong and the best way to correct it.
It’s safe to assume we handle repairs for the big gaming consoles out there. Those, of course, are:
But if you’ve got other gaming consoles not listed here or are unsure whether we service them or not because of their age, contact us. It never hurts to ask and if we don’t have the solution you’re hoping for, we’ll at least have recommendations.
The main cable you’re going to inspect, of course, is the HDMI cable that runs from your console directly to your TV or monitor (this assumes the console you’re using isn’t older and using something other than an HDMI).
HDMI cable problems come with a variety of symptoms that include:
If you’re experiencing any of these, you may have an HDMI issue. The first thing you’re looking for is signs of damage to the cable. This can include splits, abrasion, or even signs of chewing. Other areas to inspect for damage include the pins in the connectors themselves. These can easily bend or break through heavy use.
If there is damage, remove the cable and try a different HDMI cable you know works with another device. If the problem is corrected, then you know it was the cable.
Even if there aren’t signs of damage, it never hurts to try a different cable you know is functional. This helps ensure the cable isn’t the problem and something else is.
After eliminating the cable, the next place to check is the HDMI port on the console. The symptoms of port issues will be similar to issues with a bad cable. The only real difference is you’ve established that the cable is okay, which leads to the ports as the next potential problem spot.
The port could be loose or damaged. It could be repairable or simply needs to be replaced. Either way, you should bring it to our store in Midwest City for a free diagnosis.
We completely understand how you feel. Your console is having issues and you have no idea what’s causing them or how to fix them. Maybe they’re HDMI related, maybe they’re not. Maybe you don’t even know what HDMI is used for other than it’s a cable that plugs into the TV and other devices.
That’s all okay. That’s why you’re reading this, after all.
This is why we recommend bringing your console in for a free diagnostic test. It might be an easy fix, but it might not be. Let us figure the problem out for you and save you a ton of frustration.
