My TV won't play the sound from my laptop when I hook it up with HDMI cable.

My tv used to play the sound on it from my laptop when I hooked it up with the hdmi cable. now it doesn't work anymore. I think that I may have inadvertently pushed a function key or something? I need help getting the sound to play from the TV again when my laptop is hooked up to it through HDMI port.

Connect the hdmi (in) to the TV and the computer hdmi. Go into the sound settings (control panel or settings in Windows... preferences on a Mac) and choose the hdmi as the playback device. Also check the volumes on your TV and computer. If you said what OS and what version of that OS you were using, I could be more specific.

SOURCE: how to hook up a hp pavilion laptop to a hdtv

if it worked fine at some point then it should work fine now... i use hdmi to hdmi from my laptop to tv all the time dvi would only cause quality loss.

the first thing i would try would be to change your resolution on your laptop to a couple different settings. a lot of times, if its not set to one thats compatible with your tv, you won't see anything.

if that doesn't work, go to personalization and open the tab that says "connect an external display" and toy around with it. but yeah it doesn't sound like you have any hardware problems there.

hope this helps

check this out http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/762913.html *A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable. you will need a seperate audio cable unless you are going to use your laptop's speakers

When plugging in the HDMI cable fromt he tv to the gateway the sound simply quit. A configuration option pops up but it doesn't let me change anything. I'd like to watch my laptop on t


I have found some sound cards do this. One option is to use VLC media player. Make sure you add hdmi support when you install it. You can choose the audio to play thru speakers or hdmi.

Also try having it all connected then turning it all off. Then turn tv on first. Then turn on laptop.

More info on your system and tv would be helpfull

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

What's your problem?I just purchased a I just purchased a Sharp LC32SV40U. I'm trying to hook it up with my Shaw Direct DSR 505 receiver (DVI to HDMI. I cannot find how to get sound using this


When using this type of adapter you only feed video into the TV/monitor
you have to use a separate set of RCA audio wires to feed the audio into your tv.

HDMI can be flaky and does not like things to be connected while units are powered up---tv or the unit being connected.

If you hooked up with set on etc the set may not of "seen" this event and refuses to function. I know it sounds odd but I have seen this many times.

What cord do I need to connect my acer notebook to the t.v for netflix


this is pretty easy. Since you're acer aspire doesn't have an HDMI out port, then you're gonna need a VGA cable to connect your acer's video signal to the TV.

This cable should do: http://www.amazon.com/10ft-Resolution-mo...

Now, since it's not HDMI, you won't get audio coming out the TV, only your laptop. But if you want audio out your tv, all you'll need is audio cable, which you can connect to the headphone jack (audio out) and then into the AUDIO IN jack on your tv.

the audio cable: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Unlimited-A...

After this, just hook it up while your tv is turned on, switch to the VGA channel on your tv, and a window should come up on your tv asking you to configure the settings. For audio go to the control panel while the audio cable is hooked up, go to sound settings, and switch the default audio to speakers, or headphones, im not so sure what it is on a netbook

I tried hooking up my laptop to my 37lh20 tv. I connected the avi to the pc input and an audio cable fro the headset jack on the tv. If I put the tv input on rgb pc I get the picture but no sound and if...


Unless you hook HDMI to HDMI, you won't carry sound across the HDMI cable. If you're using a VGA to HDMI converter, you'll get the picture but no sound.

I have a feeling the headset jack on the TV is an output rather than an input. Most TVs accept HDMI, RCA, or a digital audio input (either coaxial or optical). Unless you have a S/PDIF optical output from your laptop (and you obviously don't have an HDMI output), then your only other choice is likely to get a cable that splits a 1/8" headset type connector into two RCA plugs that you'll plug into an AUDIO IN input on your TV.

I have an lg lcd mod#lc427d hdtv how do i hook up an rca rt2280 system to it. i have a dvd player hooked up to tv now using hdmi cables, rca av reciever does not have them...


You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.

I have a hdmi input and i dont hear sounds


HDMI definitely carries sound and video. That is what makes it so useful. One cable does it all. If you have HDMI input on your TV and you are trying to play video and sound through your laptop, you have to hook up the cable, select HDMI or digital sound from your computer sound settings and then re-start your computer (while attached to the TV0. Good luck.
