Question about Philips Magnavox 50ML8105D 50" HDTV DLP TV

Open Question

Initial set-up not working

We have a new HDMI flat screen Phillips TV with a set top cable box, HDMI capable, with cable wire connected to the set top box and HDMI cable from the set top box to the TV into HDMI #1 port on the TV. All we have on the screen is "channels not available". So I disconnected the HDMI cable from the box to the TV and connected a coaxial cable from the set top box to the TV, and we got a picture (but not high definition). Help please!

SOURCE: broke the piece where the cable wire goes in...what's it called?

Do you have a cable box or satilite box? You can come out of the box with the video output and into the tv and use it on video1 or whatever...and use it that way. Also a vcr will work the same way. Then your using the t.v. as a monitor and changing stations with the box. That's an easy "get-around" You just have to be careful when fixing the broken connector with a substitue cable. Some antenna inputs are isolated from ground, so if you use another cable, you will blow out the T.V. The isolator is usually a small 1 inch square box the connector came out of, then a small cable attaching to the tuner. If the connector was attached to the tuner itself, then you need a new tuner or a repairman to solder a new connector on. Don't try and solder one on yourself. I've yet to see that work be anyone other than a repairman. You could change the tuner yourself if you can solder somewhat well. Good-luck.

That is a convergence problem, it may be because of a faulty defective IC.

SOURCE: Recording HD channels

well you would need to hook up cable box to dvd recorder. the only draw back first off is one you cannot get hd onto a dvd. you can down scale and it will seem a little cleaner than standard def but of coarse it will never be high def. I'm not to familiar with the motorola boxes but if they offer dvr's in your area i would suggestgetting one you can record all channels then afterwards transfer them to a outside device. but as i said before high def cannot fit onto a dvd unless you plan to copy one movie to 6-7 disc. Just keep in mind a standard high def channelcan only fit 2 max on one freq due to the amount of data transfer as opposed to 10 to 12 standard def digital channels

The convergence output IC's need to be changed. A very common problem with all projection tvs.

Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

The "new device found" screen keeps popping up


Inspect for damaged pin on INPUT 1 socket. (left most of the three HDMI connectors)
A quick pull on the cable can damage the pins.
=== If you see mis-aligned pins then please power off the set before making corrective action. ===
============== Here's a textbook instruction from Mitsubishi
If the New Device Found Screen Displays No HDMI Control Option If the New Device Found screen shows no option for HDMI Control, one of these conditions applies: • HDMI Control is turned off in the menus of the new device Action: a. Highlight EXIT and press ENTER to close the New Device Found screen. b. Display the device's setup menus and enable the device's CEC capabilities. c. Wait for the TV's New Device Found screen to appear again. d. If the New Device Found screen does not appear, power off the device. Power on the device and wait for the New Device Found screen to display with the HDMI Control option.
Next time you see the NEW DEVICE FOUND screen pop up.
Toggle the CEC field (on the right side of the pop up) to OFF.

I have a 19" phillips lcd tv and when i turn the tv on the phillips screen comes up but when it is going the show the channel it shut off by itself how can i fix this problem?


Hello. I may be able to assist you. If you are using a direct cable connection from the wall outlet;
  • Check the incoming cable or antenna signal connection to ensure that it is properly secured to the TV's antenna input.
  • If the connection is good, perform the automatic installation again to search for all available channels.
If you are using a coaxial connection from the Cable or Satellite box to the TV;
  • Set the TV to the channel specified by the service provider.
  • Change the channels at the Cable or Satellite box to view the program.
If you are using a video connection (CVBS, S-Video, YPbPr, HDMI) from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  • You do not need to perform automatic installation to search for the channels.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button on the remote control repeatedly to select the correct input source.
If you are using an HDMI connection from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  1. Reset the TV and source by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  2. Turn on the TV and press the play button on your source device. If the source is HDMI CEC compliant, the TV will automatically switch to the HDMI input.
  3. If your source is not HDMI CEC compliant, turn on the TV and switch to the HDMI input.
  4. Turn on your source.
If you are sure you have selected the correct input or channel but still have no picture or sound;
  • Try resetting the TV by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button to select the correct input source.
  • Check the connection cables.
  • Try the connected source with another TV.
  • Connect a different source on the same connection of your TV.

Dont know where to begin and what wires i should purchase???


First of all, you need to find out if your Tv is HD capable.
Look in the back for component and HDMI inputs (they will be labled as such). If you have "none of the above", you will need a new TV, otherwise blu-ray will be a waste of money.

you really cant convert to component. it defeats the whole purpose of upgrading your tv. with your tv you should be using hdmi to connect all your devices your cable box should deffinatly have one. any time you connect component to something else you will get black and white hdmi is totally digital where as component is still analog pluse you dont need audio cables with hdmi its just one digital cable

The Samsung Television has 3 HDMI inputs, You would connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to your television and go into a menu on the television to select the appropriate HDMI input.

New cable boxes should have the HDMI connection.

Most Flat screen televisions I've seen have an input button on the television itself. Pushing it should allow you to switch between inputs.

My HDMI set top box display reads "no input signal" but everything appears connected. I have no picture or sound. Cannot access any tv stations.


Make sure TV is set to HDMI channel.

Try a different HDMI port on back of TV.

Reset the cable/sat box and reset the TV by powering off both and unplugging them for the wall outlet for 30 seconds. Turn cable/sat box on first, and then TV after 30 secs.

If this fails, check the TV manufacturer's website to see if they have any software upgrades that will resolve the HDMI issue.

HDMI connection problem


On your TV set remote are you selecting the proper input; for example when you have different devices connected to the back of your tv set, dvd player, vcr, cable box etc; you have to tell the tv which device you want to use by selecting the right one on your tv remove input selection. Hope this was any help.
