Question about Samsung TX-R2779H 27" TV

2 Answers

PS3/HDMI issues I recently purchased a 60gig PS3, and it works fine on this television with the regular connectors that it comes with (the red, yellow and white ones), but I bought a HDMI cable to get the most out of the blu-ray and HD, but no inputs recognize it. I go to the HDMI source, and it just says searching for signals. Is there something else that I'm missing? I figured it was as easy as putting the cord in the HDMI port in the PS3 and the HDMI port in the TV. Any help would be apperciated.

Re: PS3/HDMI issues

Hold your finger over the button on the far right of the PS3 until it beeps twice and the PS3 will cycle through it output settings and you should them be able to set up the PS3 through to the HDMI settings. Good luck. The answer above regarding the wrong cable is completely bogus.....your cable is fine.

What product would I require to hook up my Compaq laptop to my old TV Sony Trinitron to be able to watch films??

It all depend what output is available on your laptop. From what i see on internet your TV has front input for sound and composite video (yellow plug).
If you have VGA connector on laptop than you can purchase VGA to Composite video adapter, sound will come from ear phone output on your laptop.
If your laptop has only HDMI output, than you can buy HDMI to Composit (S-Video) adapter. Those have also audio out since HDMI carry both sound and video.
You can check internet for where to purchase those in your area.

Hdmi instructions

Hi Kelly,
I believe the Sony Trinitron WEGAs do not have an HDMI connection on the back of the TV. If they do it would be labeled as HDMI input below that familiar looking HDMI narrow horizontal connector. But I believe what you have is the RGB connector which looks like three round female connectors which are color coated Red Green and Blue. Now these RGB connectors are a form of high definition but it's not a direct connect for for your HDMI DVD player or your XBOX 360 or what ever you want to hook the TV up to.
You'll have to convert you HDMI to RGB. you can still purchase DVD players with RGB outputs but if you already have a device that requires a TV with HDMI, you can buy a converter. Go to RadioShack or BestBuy or search online for a HDMI to RGB converter cable . It should look something like the picture below.
RED GREEN AND BLUE for video. And then the white and red connectors that are banded together are for your audio.
Good Luck

I have a rca model # 27r410t TV that has (3) (red,yellow,white) composit input. I purchased a Netgear NTV 300 streaming media player that only has HDMI output, What time cable do I need to make this w

Your TV has only A/V inputs. Red and White is to connect the audio outs of the streaming media, and Yellow for video. But here, your streaming media player have only HDMI output. That is, it is compactable only to TVs, which have digital inputs, where your TV has not. A converter [HDMI to A/V] in between the two devices will do it to work. There is no other chance.

Samsung 2007 27" TX-T3092WH will not support HDMI or cannot see PS3?

Do one thing While PS3 is in standby mode press and hold the power button on the frond panel of PS3 for 30 seconds (factory reset). After doing this you will get video from its composite video.

Also check the hdmi If you didnt get the video through HDMI then,
PS3 out puts Full HD 1080P video through its HDMI out put. IF your tv doesn't support Full HD then it will display format not supported or Software not support.
If you want to get video through HDMI then do the following.
Connect the PS3 to any Full HD tv (friends or relatives) and go to its menu ,select HDMI settings. then down scale the video from 1080p to 1080i.
After that connect the PS3 to your tv you will surely get the video.

How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?

The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

When I plug in my DVD using the Red, White, Yellow cables the picture is fuzzy. The female sockets on the back of the TV are loose. How can I tighten them

You can usually use some pliers to squeeze the outside of the RCA connector (when it is disconnected from your TV) to give it a tighter fit BUT, few things to keep in mind,
  • All cables are not equal, a higher quality RCA cables may give improved results. I wouldn't bother with gigantic gold plated $50 cables or anything like that, just a bit thicker gauge wire a better connectors than what comes with a DVD player.
  • Using the "red/white/yellow" connections as you stated is what is called Composite Video. The white/red is left/right audio, while the yellow is the video signal. A better picture will be had if you use a higher quality signal such as the Component Video (red/green/blue connectors) out (if your TV is supported, or of coarse HDMI)
I hope this helps

How to hook psp3 to regular tv

The ps3 has 2 ways to connect to your tv. It has HDMI output and a regular video output. The regular video output is a yellow RCA connector with a red and white audio connector. You should have gotten this cable with the ps3. If your tv does not have a video or AUX input a regular vcr will. Connect the yellow, red and white from your ps3 to the same on your tv or vcr and select that input on your tv or vcr.

HDMI Video not working on kv-30hs420 but audio works

AmigaDude posts how to reset the video to factory settings here:

The instructions are as follows: 1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Once reset, you'll connect your RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow) and set up the PS3 display settings. To get there from the XMB bar, go to Settings > Display Settings. You might have to disconnect the HDMI cable from the PS3 before the RCA cables work. I don't remember entirely.
Select Video Output Settings > HDMI > Automatic. If you can see the prompt about a max resoultion of 1080i (with your HDMI cable plugged in) you should be good. Select Yes and press X to continue. You can set up the audio but it's not necessary. Select Finish and you should be good.
