Looking to connect HDMI cable from dellW5001c to xbox360

Dell tv recognizes HDMI port. When connected to xbox360. Screen displays the blue screen "no video input". Do I need to do any presets on the tv to determine if the HDMI outlet is working properly?

    I have the Dell w4201c bought December 2006. We aslo spent all day December 27th trying to get it to work with our new xbox 360 using either hd port. After spending a lot of time on the phone with xbox and dell,trying different hdmi cables and tvs we were told by the Dell repair guy that the hd ports are hdcp(copy protected) ports and will likely not work with any new device using an hdmi cable and the only thing we can do is use the component cables instead. Which we have done and the work great.

    However we are kinda miffed about having a hd tv and not being able to use it to its full capacity! Dell should have done a recall or an update or something.

Double check if you selected the right tv input HDMI 1 or 2 or 3 etc. if thats ritgh then

Make sure the component cable is not pluged in to the xbox.

if you have another hdmi divice, try it on the same port to see if the problem is the tv.

You will need an HDMI cable. Please follow the below instructions.

Instructions

  1. Before you begin installation:
    • Turn OFF the PS3TM system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)
    • Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet
    • Turn OFF and unplug the TV
  2. Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PS3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor. ps3_8_hdmiconnecttv.gif
  3. Plug in the AC power cord by connecting one end of the AC power cord into the [AC IN] port on the back of the PS3 system and the other end into an electrical outlet. ps3_11_connectacpower.gif
  4. Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.
  5. Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.
    Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.
  6. Plug in the TV and turn the power on. The PS3 should detect the HDMI display device automatically. When prompted, "Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton. (You may need to press the PS button on the center of the SIXAXISTM controller to enable the controller first).
  7. The next screen will ask, "Do you want to automatically switch to the optimal setting?" Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton.
  8. On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, "Do you accept the setting?" You will have 30 seconds to confirm your answer.2 Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to save your settings. You have now completed the HDMI installation.

Vizio Model M470SV HDMI port nor working (won't recognize dvd player,Xbox,play station etc)


This unit has four HDMI ports. Input is not automatically set to the port that your devices are connected to. Take a look at the markings that correspond to the port that your peripherals are connected to, then use the Remote Control to change the respective HDMI port.

With your external device connected and turned on, press the HDMI button on the Remote Control several times in succession until the proper HDMI port is displayed. Output from your device should now be displayed on the screen.

How do I connect a laptop to this tv?


It will depend on the laptop's available external video ports. You can connect a VGA cable from some laptops to the VGA port on the TV. Then plug in a 3.5 mm audio cable from the headphone jack to the PC audio in port. (The audio connection is optional. You could continue using the laptop's speakers.)

Make the connections with the TV and the laptop off. You may need to enter the BIOS to enable the external video port. (It can be turned off to save power. The BIOS is accessed on boot by pressing a key (Esc, F1, Del) noted on the splash screen. For Win8 machines, you'll need to do a special restart.) Then turn on the TV before turning on the computer. The TV monitor should be automatically recognized for resolution and refresh rate. Next, if you have a Windows system, right click on the desktop (pick a spot with no icons or running programs). Click on Screen Resolution (or perhaps Graphics Properties, depending on the OS). Set the monitor to duplicate the screens or send data only to the TV screen.

I'm not sure if the HDMI ports will understand a computer signal. (Not all TVs can interpret the computer's HDMI signal; it is different than that of other set top boxes.) You can try the following connections.
If your laptop has a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable (or adapter) to connect to the TV. Then connect the HDMI cable to HDMI 1 and use the PC audio connection as above.
For an HDMI output, use an HDMI cable. (You will still need the audio cable unless you can reset the audio signal to output on the HDMI port. Go to the Control Panel and then the Hardware and Sounds section. Under Sound, select Manage audio devices. Then in the Playback tab, make the HDMI audio the default.) For Display Port or Thunderbolt outputs on the laptop, you will need a DP to HDMI adapter.

If the HDMI port doesn't understand the computer signal, you'll need to use a converter to go from the computer's output to component video or to VGA. Then connect the converter's output to the appropriate port on the TV.

I hope this helps.

Connecting computer to Element flx-3211b via HDMI not working


I had the same issue with this TV in my hotel room. I set the FLX3211B TV up as an extension of my laptop, but had to change the refresh rate from the default 58p Hz to 60p Hz for the digital TV display. Once I did this, it came right up.

How do i hook up my ps3 with tv through hdmi as it keeps goin to blue screen


  1. Connect the PS3 standard composite video connector (yellow RCA plug) to the TV composite input and switch the TV to that input. Leave the HDMI cable connected.
  2. Make sure the PS3 is off. Turn it on and hold the power button until you get two beeps (at least 5 seconds). The PS3 navigation screen should be shown on the TV. If not, switch the TV back to HDMI; the screen should be displayed at 480i resolution.
  3. Go to the settings menu. Select Display Settings, then Video Output Settings, then press the X button on your controller.
  4. The on-screen instruction should be "Select the type of input on your TV." Select HDMI, then press the '> (solid right triangle) button on your controller.
  5. You will be offered the choice of Automatic or Custom settings. Try Automatic first (if there is a problem at the end, start over and pick Custom the second time).
  6. Press the X button. You will get a screen asking you to confirm the changes. Press the X button again to confirm.
  7. You may get a screen asking for the resolution setting. IMPORTANT: if your TV's maximum resolution is 720p or lower, do not pick a higher resolution. The TV may not display properly or may not display at all (blue screen). Pick the highest resolution your TV can display.
  8. Confirm this by selecting "Yes" and pressing the X button.
  9. The settings list should now read Connector Type HDMI; Resolution Standard (NTSC); 480p; 720p; 1080p (if applicable). Press the X button to confirm.
  10. You may be offered a choice of audio outputs; you can use HDMI or something else, depending on your setup. Confirm the setting and press X one more time.

At this point, the PS3 should send its signal to the HDMI port following restart. If your TV has more than one HDMI input, make sure you select the one connected to the PS3.

How to conect my laptop to LCD


It depends on the laptop connections. First make sure that your computer is sending data to the port (particularly VGA); you may have to access the BIOS to change the setting (often F1 or F2 on restart). If you have a VGA port on the laptop, get a video cable (VGA-VGA) and connect the two together (this is usually a blue port and you need M/M ends). Then enable in the graphics properties (right click on the display where there are no icons or running program). You want the section that lets you choose sending to the external monitor, the laptop monitor or showing the same contents on both. The version of your OS may alter which command you need (you can also access this in the Control Panel (Display). You may need to restart the computer with the TV on to get the computer to recognize the TV. Set the TV to have the source the PC input. Also connect the speaker cable from the laptop to the TV if you want to use the TV's speakers (there is an audio port next to the VGA port that I believe is a 3.5 mm jack (would need a stereo 3.5 mm m/m cable between the two). Make sure you select the optimum resolution of 1360 x 768.

If you have an HDMI port on the laptop (newer laptops), get an HDMI cable (m/m) and connect the two. Set the TV to DVI or HDMI source (depending on if you need the audio cables separate) and reboot the computer. Then enable the display, as above. I believe you still need the audio cable as well (should use a 3.5 mm stereo to RCA R/L (red/white) cable) look for the DVI audio next to the HDMI/DVI port.

I hope this helps.

(my understanding is that computer HDMI ports do not send the audio but you should check your laptop manual.)
