The first step is to determine whether the computer, the HDMI cable or the TV is the faulty link in the chain. I know it's a tremendous hassle to try a different TV, different computer, etc. But it will at least narrow the problem down to one component. My guess is that it's something in the computer that needs reconfiguring; that would be the most likely scenario, assuming you have a new HDMI cable.

Can i watch netflix on my KDL-32EX524 UKA bravia tv?


To watch Netflix you need a (Netflix subscription of course) and a Smart TV with the Netflix app running or if you have an older TV you will need a streaming device like Amazon Fire TV http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GDQ0RMG?ref_=ods_gw_d_h1_tv_montoya_dualUR
which plugs into your HDMI port to access Netflix via a wireless internet connection. The setup is pretty easy. Hope this is helpful.

How to activate my laptop to my samsung tv


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.

Hey iJust bought a 42 inch Phillips lcd tv And i am trying to attatch my lToshiba E100 Satllite lap top to it via the HDMI ports on both the tv and laptop but nothing is happening


When you have the tv connected and both on, Switch the TV to the HDMI feed then press the [FN] key and hold and start pressing the [F4] key counting to 10 between presses. You have to tell the computer bios to activate the external port and send video signal to that port.

No HDMI on the source list, i have a Virgin Media V+ Box with a HD cable pugged in and when i look at the source list the HDMI Port is not Highlighted, why is this? Please help


One of a few things are happening. If you are connected to the TV via the HDMI port and it doesn't become highlighted then either the main board on the TV is at fault, the HDMI output on the media box is not working (try on another TV if possible) or the HDMI cable itself is bad.

Help for a friend; ln-s4095d, hdmi and blu-ray.. no picture


You may want to try a good, Monster Cable, HDMI cable. Visit this page: http://www.monstercable.com/HDMI/advancedhdmi.asp
If you have a standard HDMI cable, it will not support 1080P.

So this is one of the few times that I will recommend spending the money for a better cable.
The better cable improves picture color quality, from 8 bit to 12 bit and it improves audio quality.
