Asus laptop doesn't read the hdmi port

The hdmi port is an output to the high definition video, and the laptop does not read from it. If you mean the output from the laptop does not appear on the HDMI monitor that is plugged into the HDMI port, then go to the monitor and check the input selection menu on the screen. The VGA or composite input may be the default.

Hdmi cable closed caption

Are you using the cable box settings (or remote) or your TV's remote to select the closed captions. When you use the HDMI cable, you need to enable the captioning on the set top box. The TV can only interpret the CC if the signal goes through the tuner (coaxial cable input). It's a matter of how they built the hardware; the cc interpreter is part of the tuner.

Which cable provider do you have? I know with some providers, there isn't a direct CC button on the remote. With them you need to go through the Settings menu to enable the closed captions. If you add a comment with your provider, I may be able to help you enable the CC if there isn't a CC button on the cable remote.

I hope this helps.

No picture or sound when I plugged in HDMI cables to back of PDP-R04E media receiver

Hi there
I do not know what SKY is,but if it is a kind of a transformer that is connected to the router. I have that because of the ADSL.
I discovered that this transformer has to be "new" in order to plug the HDMI cable in the transformer and the HDMI socket. I hope my English is understandable because this HDMI and scarts are a bitcomplecated to explain but simple inpractice.
all the best

I need some answers. We have a Vizio TV, and we plugged in our DVD play to HDMI-2. When we put the TV on and then the DVD player on we get no picture.

Hello,some dvd players require that you go into there menu and turn on (enable ) the hdmi jack.I suggest you first hook the dvd player up with its yellow video cable to video 1 in on the tv and then search the dvd menu for its setup options.

It recognizes that there is an HDMI plugged in but when the television is set to the HDMI plug that is correct I have no picture and/or sound

Once the ps3 is set to use the av output it turns the hdmi output off so you need to go into the display settings menu select the connection/resolution and then scroll up to the hdmi output then press right to enable it.

Hopefully the tv should then find the hdmi connection.

You could also try as has already been suggested turning the ps3 off then holding the power button down on restart until it beeps, approx 5-10secs. This should reset the output. I would recommend unplugging the av output so the ps3 is forced to use the hdmi cable, make sure this is plugged in to both the tv and the ps3 first.

I have only the cable and hdmi hook into my panasonic 42 plasma and i dont get anything that is hdmi is there other cables i need?

Using your input key on the remote should switch you to the other modes. If you cannot access any HDMI or other input labels, go to your menu, and into the Input Labeling menu (under settings) and make sure you have all the inputs you require enabled. Its possible you (or an out of the box error) put these other inputs offline, which is why you aren't able to access your media from HDMI. If all inputs are enabled, and labeled, double check all the HDMI inputs on the unit. Plug what you are using with HDMI into each port, having the power on and sending information to the television. In some rare cases, I've seen that it doesn't allow access to the HDMI without it providing some source information.

Hope that helps.
