Is my hdmi port broken on my TV?

I have just bought a brand new TV. I have the other two hdmi ports working fine but the third one just displays this. I want to run the new dvd player from this hdmi port. The player works when I plug it in either or the other two.

How can this port not work on a new TV !!?

Please help

    Interesting fault.. I'll keep researching.

    LG I assume, do you have the model number please.
    One thing I can recommend, connect to the internet and perform a software update if you haven't already.

    Weirdly enough I turned it off at the mains and turned it back on and the port works now. Wtf

    It probably missed the handshake or you have an out of spec cable.

    HDMI cables are quits fussy. Avoid £1 ones!

    Plug the DVD into one of the other HDMI ports.  If the fault travels - it’s the cable/dvd player.  If it doesn’t - it’s the port.
