I would attempt to debug with some other device.
Like maybe a camcorder with HDMI output. That
has two desirable properties. When run off batteries,
it floats electrically. When sending a playback signal
from some video you shot, it has no reason to assert
"Do Not Copy", nor use HDCP encryption. I would
use that as a test stimulus for the HDMI.

A standalone DVD player, might float electrically (use
a two-pronged power plug with no safety ground), but
it may use HDCP to encrypt the signal on the way to
the TV set.

Since you eventually get the ports to run, it isn't
a physical layer problem (damage).

And the TV OSD, may not be giving you as much diagnostic
information as it could. "No signal" for example, might not
mean "No signal", it might mean a signal is present, and
"I'm not allowed to play it".  You can't rely on the TV
telling you everything it knows.

Thanks for responding Paul.

Sorry for my lack of acknowedgement.  I have been busy otherwise.
I will try to substitute another HDMI device if I can come up with
one.  I may not have one.

The problem persists - as if the TV HDMI controller has died and gone
to Heaven.
