1. Check the computer for changing output (some computers use <F5>, <F8>, depending on which brand they are. I believe Sony uses <Function><F7> or <F7>). 2. Check what channel the HDMI port is on (e.g. AV1, HDMI1, HDMI2, etc.) - you need to know this if your TV doesn't automatically switch to the new input. 3. Plug the HDMI cable into the TV HDMI cable-in port. 4. Plug the HDMI cable into the laptop HDMI cable-out port.
5. Turn on the computer. 6. Press the <Function><F7> simultaneously ONCE. The screen should flicker and show up on TV. 7. Sometimes you may have to go to "Display Preferences" and select Dual Monitors or external monitor if your computer doesn't do it automatically. Repeat Step 6 after.
** You may have to adjust Display Resolution to 1024 x 768 or lower in order for the TV to work. After it works at a lower display (800 x 600, for example), you can adjust the resolution to the maximum the TV can accept.
If you mean watch what you see on your laptop on your TV, then you need to connect an HDMI cable or S-Video cable (depending on what sort of ports you have) from your laptop to your TV, then select the appropriate input on your TV or TV remote. For example if connected via HDMI and your TV has 2 HDMI inputs (ie. HDMI 1 and HDMI 2), select which one you connected to.
Go into your display driver, and make certain you have it set to have the internal LCD as your primary display. There should be an option to go ahead and have it either act as a second display just cloning what's on your screen or to have it extend. (select the option to clone)
does your Technika 42" hdtv have a RGB connection, it will look like the same type of video connector on your computer, also if your sony vaio has a HDMI connection and your tv does as well, you might try hooking them up via an HDMI cable.
yes sir..i think you must looking and buy VGA adapter 15 to HDMI complete with the HDMI cable set. you can find this adapter at the computer spare part store or electronic part store. not cheap but very usefull for you in the next day. is very easy to connecting...plug you adapter to the output VGA VAIO.. connect the HDMI cable to adapter (like USB) and the rest to the input at your samsung lcd...good luck..
I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.
So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
I have good new and bad news
The good news first:
believe it or not you have solved the problem and the HDMI port on you TV is not working.
Now for the bad news:
What ever damaged the HDMI port on your TV also damaged the DVR UNIT, and it looks like it could be in the switching section. What that is is the point where viedo is delivered to the various ports by the DVR Unit, I should call it more of a crossover point,since the signal is processed differently by the various output ports. I would suggest that you get the HGMI port in yoyr TV repaired and the DVR repaired at a qualified shop. There are no repairs that you can affect on these devices.
