Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

With my Maxent MX50X5, when connecting a Play Station to the HDMI inputs I get "No Support". The sound comes through, but no audio. I have not used the HDMI ports before. The manual says that when using HDMI some parameters may need to be adjusted, but that's all it says - no details or other support.

There is a problem between Maxent plasma TVs and playstation sygnal, lowering down playstation resolution in this case does not help.

Try using the composite cables to connect the playstation, it will work on composite.

    I can fix televisions, but this peculiar problem seems to happen on Maxent and Vizio Tv connected to playstation.

    If you use the composite cable to connect you do not have the problem.

    If you want to know more about this, the only way to proceeid is by contacting Maxent:

Our LG television seems to not be processing signal properly, the picture and sound is very slow and sounds distorted. When connected the playstation comes up with no signal. What could be wrong?

a few issues , you need to use the appropriate cables, for example , play station needs an HDMI only ,make sure whatever input the hdmi is in , , thats the input you use fot the play station .
it sounds like your using multiple wiring , im guessing because of the lack of info giving on your help request ,. make sure your using digital cabling for each device your hooking up. also , are you using a sound system , a tuner .... you should be using an HDMI or 2nd a component cable , those are the 2 best , all others are going to cause audio issues. give me more info and ill be able to tell you exactly how to fix your problem. good luck ..

When i try to play my x box on my sanyo tv no sound comes out of the tv

Try a different HDMI input and a different cable.

DVI is same as HDMI in regards to the picture signal, but lacks the audio.

Apparently for some reason the TV does not pick up audio and that could be because the HDMI port has a problem (say physical contact) or because the cable has a problem or (of course) because the XBOX does not output signal for some reason.

My first two picks would be the port and the cable.

hope this helps!

How to connect a play station 3 to tv?

Just plug it like a regular DVD player thru HDMI connection and then choose HDMI AV input from your TV to be able to see the screen. You can also use the TV as a monitor by using the S-Video or the VGA input and then put the audio of the PS3 to your Audio system or amplifier.

LD4088 LCD will not play sound via HDMI cables. Component cables are fine. Hear a faint "click" from speaker when switching to HDMI input. Have tried all three HDMI connectors and have tried...

This is how AUDIO works in HDMI setup, you can select the source to send the digital audio along with the digital video through HDMI, the receiving end HDMI sound setup must be set to receive the digital audio through HDMI. Otherwise the audio may be sent and received through analog audio ports (Red (Right channel) and White (Left channel) RCA jacks) in stead. Most of the new TV and DVD player use auto detection.
So please check the HDMI audio setup to see how the audio signals are set to be processed.

Please leave rating if it helps.

Sherwood RD-7502 Hdmi Audio Problem

Unable to play DTS-HD & True-HD

What do you hear? Do all other modes work ok?

If Audio Select (Page 44 and 98) is set to HDMI you will hear silence if no HDMI signal is present. I think AUTO is the best choice here.


On Page 98 of the manual it says a bunch of things concerning automatic signal detection and input selection.

Initial configuration D) INIT. CONFIG
Use this feature to select the settings of the audio input jack select, active decoders and extended surround when you tum on this unit.

Audio select AUDIO SELECT
Use this feature to designate the default audio input jack select setting (see page 44) for the input sources connected to the DIGITAL INPUT jacks when you tum on the power of this unit.

Use this feature to select the component to play back HDMI audio signals.

Support audio S. Audio
Use this feature to select whether to play back HDMI audio signals on this unit or on another HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack on the rear panel of this unit.


Plays back HDMI audio signals on this unit. The HDMI audio signals input at the HDMI input jacks of this unit are not output to the HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack on the rear panel of this unit.

HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack.

This unit transmits audio and video signals input at the HDMI input jacks to the HDMI out jack only when this unit is turned on even if "S.AUDIO" is set to "OTHER".

I'd look in these areas for specific guidance.

Hi there, I've searched as much as I can on our work internet (which filters "games" so not a lot of help) but my problem is that with my PS3 connected to my new panasonic 65" 1080HD via...

Some Panasonic's have several HDMI inputs, but usually one of them will have a separate input for audio. You might move the HDMI to another port. If this doesn't apply I would run through the setup on the PS3, making sure that audio is configured correctly and not set for 24p audio. Most TV's cannot decode this audio format, unless it is very new.

Hope this helps,

Play station 3 hdmi-dvi

Yes you can. It will not be like a HDMI cable but it will be better than the RCA. Your image will be in your HDTV (1920 × 1080). But you will have to buy a HDMI cable and and HDMI-DVI adaptor. You will not have sound so you will have to connect either your RCA or if you have a Digital Optical Audio sounds better.

If you have any questions just ask.

Good luck!
