ADV7513 intermittent signal

Hello forum members,


I've been playing around with the ADV7513 for over a month now but I cannot get it to work properly.

It will work flawlessly with LG monitors but act up when connected to samsung monitors.

When hooked up to a samsung monitor it will sometimes display image for 2 seconds on power on and

then go blank. Other times on power up it will show "No signal" on the screen and then "No cable connected".

The temporary solution I currently have is to replug the HDMI cable several times until it works after which

everything looks perfect.


The ADV7513 is being supplied with a 1920x1080@60Hz image with a pixel clock of 148.5 MHz.

Hsync, Vsync and DE are external.


I should note that when I connect the device to a (samsung) television that I'm measuring +2.7V on the +5V HDMI line.

As recommended by the datasheet I'm using the 5 volt line for the 2 kOhm pull ups on DDCSCL and DDCSDA.

The maximum amount of current that could run would be 5 mA which is far below the 55 mA that the HDMI spec demands.

So that's odd.


This is the code I have running on a AVR connected to the I2C pins of the ADV7513.

WriteRegister has the following parameter: Address, Register, Value, Bitmask.

(bitmask '1' = Keep original register value, '0' = replace with new value)


void loop () {

    delay(200);  // Allow the ADV7513 to settle

    while (ReadRegister(0x72, 0x42) & B01100000 != B01100000) {};  // Wait for Hot Plug Detect and Monitor Sense


    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x41, B00000000, B10111111);  // Power up ADV7513


    /* Fixed Registers */

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x98, 0x03);

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x9A, B11100000, B00000001);

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x9C, 0x30);

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x9D, B00000001, B11111100);

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0xA2, 0xA4);

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0xA3, 0xA4);

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0xE0, 0xD0);

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0xF9, 0x00);


    /* Video input / output settings */

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0xAF, B00000010, B11111101);        // Select HDMI as opposed to DVI

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x15, B00000000, B11110000);        // Input format RGB 4:4:4

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x16, B00110000, B11001111);        // Input color depth 8 bit

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x48, B01000000, B10111111);        // AVI Packet update (wait)

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x3B, B01100000, B10011111);        // Pixel repeat on manual mode to force VIC

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x3C, B00010000, B11000000);        // VIC #16 1080p-60 16:9

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x56, B00100000, B11001111);        // AVI Infoframe - 16:9 ratio

    WriteRegister(0x72, 0x48, B00000000, B10111111);        // AVI Packet update (send)


    while (ReadRegister(0x72, 0x42) & B01100000 == B01100000) {};     // Wait for Hot Plug Detect and Monitor Sense to disappear




Thank you for your time and I look forward to your replies.
