SOURCE: HDMI to DVI gives pink screen

Make sure the Geforce outputs in DVI-digital
then  Boot the PC while the TV is on and connected. This allows the card to read the EDID from the TV and provide the best resolution...

 
Most displays work best at their native resolution, which is either 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720, or 1024 x 768 for most HD TVs. It sounds like your video card has difficulty handling resolutions that high and that may be your problem.
 
One has to remember that DVI/HDMI is capable of carrying two types of Colourspaces: RGB and YPrPb. Unless modified, the PC will always output RGB.
Do you any other components that use HDMI that you can test, or another HDMI port on your TV that you can use? If not, then the best you can do is swap the cable and contact your provider about the problem,  Make sure the Geforce outputs in DVI-digital

SOURCE: Connected DVD Player to TV using HDMI cable doesn't work

Have you changed the input of your TV unit to AV1, AV2 or component...or what ever? If so and yet the problem prevails, then try to Plug the AV cable to the input of your Cable Box, if it has so.

I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal!

If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not necessarily digital broadcasts

Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

I have a Emerson Tv that doesn't have a HDMI input is there a converter I can buy to hook my bp145 LG Blue-ray up


There is an adapter that goes from HDMI to DVI, There is even a cord that is HDMI on one end and DVI on the other.
A lot of TVs have the VGA PC connection on the back, not sure if your model has it, but you need DVI specifically and its not as common on TVs.

No sound or picture from dvd


And you have selected the HDMI2 input in the TV menu? If yes, try the dvd on another TV, if you have one. Also try reversing the HDMI cable.

Sony rdr vx410 dvd player playing some dvds in black and white


  • DVD's are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576 lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to “upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • Some HDMI or DVI featured DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • If your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly adjusted.

  • Some high end TV sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image. Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set. Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.

  • If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.

  • Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).

No Picture on HDMI using Philips DVP5992.


You can try out by connecting the CVBS (Yello) out from player to TV and connect HDMI out from Player to TV. Goto CVBS input on Sony TV. Select set up and you should get the HDMI Video options availble. Try to change the resulution and check for Video on HDMI source.
Which disc you were playing PAL or NTSC? PAL should work for Europe.

Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.

Converting up to 1080


Hello. You have to use the HDMI port and connect to the HDMI, or DVI, port on the back of the TV to get 1080. Even if playing HDDVD, this cable is necessary to get the increase. That, and the TV has to be in 1080 too. If you look at the display, on the front of the player, while watching the DVD, it will tell you at what resolution the DVD is playing. The HDMI to HDMI/DVI must be installed to get the increase in resolution. I have a Panasonic HD 34" 1080i widescreen TV, with DVI connection. When connected, the player played my DVD's at 1080i on my TV, while at only 480i thru the composite cables.

On some older movies or series(I like Star Trek- TNG), it doesn't work well due to the transfer to the DVD. Most newer DVD's, such as Batman Begins (there is an HD out, but I have DVD only), improved on the upconvert for me nicely.
