Subject: How to Troubleshoot HDBaseT Extenders

This troubleshooting guide will help determine the cause of any challenges you may be facing with HDBaseT extenders (transmitters and/or receivers)

 

Items:

  • HDBaseT transmitter such as the AT-UHD-EX-70-TX or an HDBaseT matrix such as the AT-UHD-PRO3-88M
  • HDBaseT receiver such as the AT-UHD-EX-70-RX

 

No Power

    2. KB01559 - Powering HDBaseT Extenders via USB 5V
  2. Check the connected circuit
    1. If there is no power at the circuit, move to a known working circuit.
    2. If this does not restore power,
  3. Try another power supply
    1. If the new power supply restores power to the unit and the old one still does not work, reach out to support@atlona.com to confirm you've gone through these steps and we will send you a new power supply.
    2. If the new power supply does not restore power,
  4. Try to power via USB 5V
    1. If this fails to restore power to the unit or is otherwise an unacceptable workaround, reach out to support@atlona.com to confirm you've gone through these steps and we will work with you to process a warranty return/repair/replacement.

Power, but no Link

    2. KB01075 - HDBaseT optimal performance CAT cable chart
  2. Connect the devices via HDBaseT using a known-good short factory-made shielded category cable 5e or better
    1. If link is restored, the infrastructure cable is suspect and should be re-terminated or replaced.
    2. If link is not restored, reach out to support@atlona.com to confirm you've gone through these steps and we will work with you to process a warranty return/repair/replacement.

No Video/Audio

  2. Check whether there are any known compatibility challenges with the interconnected devices
    1. If there are any known compatibility challenges with the interconnected devices, test with compatible devices and cables.
    2. If compatible devices and cables fail and you still experience challenges with your HDBaseT extenders, reach out to support@atlona.com for further support.
    3. If there are no known compatibility challenges with the interconnected devices but the challenges are isolated to certain devices in the system,
  3. Check that the interconnected devices are within technical specifications of one another
    1. If the interconnected devices are within technical specifications of one another, try new HDMI and HDBaseT cables.
    2. If known-good cable replacements continue to experience challenges isolated to certain devices in the system that should be compatible, reach out to support@atlona.com for further support.
