6.1.2 Output Cable
HDBaseT was designed to provide Full HD performance up to 100 meters of Cat.5e or
superior cables. In a typical installation, the cable is stretched to its full length between
the HDBaseT Transmitter device and the HDBaseT Receiver device. However
sometimes, especially, in demonstrations or in a lab environment, the cable is rolled
randomly in small turns for convenience. The randomly rolled UTP cable suffers
additional signal impairments (compared to straight cable) and therefore the maximal
operating reach might be reduced. When a Cat.5e cable is randomly rolled, it is
recommended to limit its length to approximate 50 meters. Rolling a Cat.5e cable around
a 70cm fixed diameter plastic drum has just a minor effect on the FEXT (Far End Cross
Talk) when compared to a fully stretched cable.

9. Troubleshooting
1. What to do if LCD is fail in display?
Answer: Check the connection of power cord is not loosening and the power cord is in a
good status having no any damage. Check the power source is normally.
2. What to do if the HDMI Matrix front panel keys switching not responsive?
Answer: The HDMI Matrix front panel keys employ scanning testing and require longer
response time. Press the keys for 2 seconds and then release. This way, key
switching will be responsive in operation.
3. What to do if the serial port (usually refer to the computer serial port) fails to control the
HDMI Matrix?
Answer: Check that the communication port set by the control software is correctly
connected to the corresponding serial port of the equipment. Also, check if the
computer communication port is in good order. Check the ID address and DIP
Switcher are configured correctly. Refer to 6.6.6 Device ID Settings and 6.6.5
DIP Switcher 2 Pins.
4. What to do if the corresponding audio signal fails to output during HDMI Matrix
switching?
Answer:
(1) Check if there is signal on the input end. If there is no input signal, it could be that the
input connection cable is broken or the connector gets loosen. You are advised to
replace the connection cable.
(2) Check if there is signal on the output end. If there is no output signal, it could be that
the cable is broken or the connector gets loosen. You are advised to replace the
connection cable.
(3) Check if the output port number is the same as the controlled port number.
(4) Check the connections of input and output ports are correctly.
(5) If none of the above circumstances happen, it could be internal failure of the product
itself. You must send for repair by qualified technical engineers.
62

5. What to do if you sense the power leakage during plugging or unplugging of the
input/output ports?
Answer: It could be that the equipment power is not properly grounded. You must
properly ground your equipment; otherwise product life can easily be shortened.
6. What to do if the HDMI Matrix panel keys and communication ports are out of order?
Answer: Check if the equipment power input is in good contact and the computer
communication ports are in good order. If yes, it could be some internal failure of the
product, please send for repair by qualified technical engineer.
7. What to do if operation and function failure occurred?
Answer: Check if the equipment and the Matrix system are in proper connection. If the
problem persists, send the product to the maintenance center for repair.
8. How to avoid the equipment failure due to the high temperature?
Answer: Place the equipment in a ventilate location. If it is still not to be improved,
please check with the build-in fan whether is damaged. Or contact your agency for
helping.
9. What to do if IR function failure occurred?

 However sometimes, especially in demonstrations or in a lab environment, the cable
is rolled randomly in small turns for convenience. The randomly rolled UTP cable
suffers additional signal impairments (compared to a straight cable) and therefore the
maximal operating reach might be reduced. Rolling a Cat.5e cable around a 70 cm
fixed diameter plastic drum has just a minor effect on the FEXT (Far End Cross Talk)
when compared to a fully stretched cable.
