Make sure you're using theright 'type' of HDMI (if I remember correctly you have 'fast hdmi with build in lan and standard video/audio only hdmi). make sure your pc is fast enough, since hdmi is software based and therefore not 'just a copy' of your screen but rather a second screen. In fact, I would reccomend using a standard VGA or DVI to display on a tv, since it is faster an less hardware intenstif (higher resolution/ less stress on onboard video)
(if you have an older pc, this is the way to go) and use external speakers for your sound

    I have had it working on the tv through HDMI cable before. How do I adjust settings or the process to do this?

  • Al G C Oct 25, 2012

    I have already turned computer off with the tv and plugged cable in like windows help suppport said to do. When the HDMI cord is plugged in it loads something but won't bring picture up on tv?

  • Lieven P. Oct 25, 2012

If you are using windows, try going to the screen resolution page(right click desktop and click properties and then click the last tab for xp, or right click desktop and click personalize and then screen resolution. There you should see two black rectangles. Click the second one(he one that's grayed out) and set a resolution in the dropdown menu. Then the tv should show your computer screen. You can also fool around with the resolutions. Good luck!

Can someone please help me get my laptop working through HDMI cable onto TV on a sony VAIO VGN-FW23G. I need to know the process to do this


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.

What's your problem?can not hook up lap top to tv


Connecting your laptop to your TV will require a HDMI cable. Attach the cable to the HDMI ports on the latop and TV, then change the source input from your TV to HDMI and your TV will now display your laptop.

How to connect dish tv to my laptop? It has inbuilt tv tuner.


Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV separately.

Things You'll Need

HDMI cable

USB-to-HDMI adapter

OR

S-video cable

Audio cables

HDMI Connection

Turn on your Lenovo laptop and HDMI-enabled TV.

Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has these ports. If you have a ThinkPad or other Lenovo model, connect a USB-to-HDMI adapter to your HDMI cable, then plug the USB end of the adapter into any USB port.

Press the "FN" and "F7" keys on your keyboard. This will switch the laptop's display to the TV. You can then use your TV screen as a monitor or use the laptop's DVD drive to watch movies on your TV.

S-Video Connection

Turn off your laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV on the other.

Plug audio cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of the audio cables into your TV.

Turn on the laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop screen, then select "Properties."

Click the "Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option, depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option in any version.

Click on the option that suits your system, such as "TV" or "LCD." Click "Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click "OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to the external screen.

"Out of range" means that the picture displayed by the laptop cannot be displayed by the TV, either because the resolution is not supported or the refresh rate is not supported.

Sometimes, I've had to set the refresh rate (from the laptop Display settings) to 59Hz to get it to work as opposed to the default 60Hz.

What resolution does your TV support? What resolution does the laptop support?

Matching these as closely as possible and you'll get the picture on the TV screen.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes,

Hdmi to panasonic tv no desktop display only


I can help with getting your desktop onto your TV, but sound from your computer through HDMI can be much trickier.

If you only see a background picture on your TV, then your desktop has been either "extended" or "stretched" onto it. It is essentially a second independent monitor and you can drag applications over to it to see them.

To view your desktop and start menu on your TV, you need to run ati catalyst and "clone" your TV with your computers monitor. Do this by right clicking the picture of the second monitor in the catalyst display manager and choosing "clone". Now your tv and your monitor act as one.

Although i tried 3 different ati cards with hdmi outs that claimed to pump audio through hdmi, none of them worked for my HP PC. You will need a grey widget adaptor between your computer and the hdmi cable. In the end though, there's a conflict between my sound card and ATI's HDMI audio that cannot be resolved. So I run a digital SPDIF signal instead through an rca cable and get 5.1 dolby at my amp that way. Good luck.

Issues Displaying picture from HDMI upconversion


I've posted this other places. Hope it helps.

My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.
