Hey, my old plasma's HD connection just stopped working. I'd been running my PS3 and SkyHD box successfully for 6 months or so (prior to that, my PS3 only for several years). I would just manually change input on the single HDMI port on the TV to switch between PS3 and SkyHD. Then I bought a splitter so I could easily flip between the two sources. It worked for a month or so, but one day I lost all HDMI altogether.

I've tested both the PS3 and Sky HD separately without the splitter and neither worked. Since, both HD sources aren't working, I concluded it's probably the TV. I phoned Sky anyway, and they couldn't do anything. The TV is 6 years old, bought in Singapore, so no chance of any customer support there.

Is there an easy fix I'm missing? Is the TV a write off? Any thoughts appreciated.
