Question about Emerson LD195EM8 19 in. LCD TV

Open Question

My Emerson LC190EM1 says "format not supported" when I plug in my Sony DVP-SR760H via HDMI. I have tried both of the HDMI inputs on the TV.

I don't know if it matters, but the TV is three years old and both the DVD player and HDMI cord are brand new.

SOURCE: Emerson TV LC320EMXF Remote code for Direc TV

I got the same TV for my stepdaughter and had the same problem. None of the Emerson codes worked. We use Dish Network but I did the autoscan thing on the remote and found that it was 672 which is listed as a Sylvania. I don't know if it will help in your case but maybe try the Sylvania codes. Good luck.

SOURCE: Format not supported when i try to use my emerson

That usually means the "Resolution" is set too high. Try to start in SAFE MODE, press F8 at bootup, and choose, Standard VGA Mode, or boot to the safe mode desktop, then set resolution for say 800x600 32bit. Then reboot. Hopefully you should now be OK.

SOURCE: ps3 hdmi is saying format not supported on my 32"

hi
there maybe some problem with ur tvs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its hdmi. may be your tv is not supporting that resolution. connect ps3's component video out to ur tv and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution ur tv will not support. ur tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's hdmi out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
connect ur ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ur ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to ur tv via hdmi. surly u will get the video.
ok

Tv says no signal


Do you know for sure that it is getting a signal? Put some type device, DVD Player, VCR or something that you know is providing a signal to it and see if it's actually in the TV. Also use another Coaxial cable. if it still does it, try the HDMI. If you still get no signal then the main board has gone out in it. If you can get HDMI and no RF signal then it is the tuner board. Most of the time these are not made into the main board and are fairly inexpensive to buy on the internet. With a little screw operating instructions you can fix it yourself. You are welcome to come back and ask me directly if you need further instructions. These new flat screen do not store the super high voltage like the old one's did. It just a matter of taking out screws and changing boards and don't worry about marking the wires if you have to unplug some. TVs have always been made where you CANNOT plug them back in wrong, if the plug don't go to a particular socket it will not go. It will only plug back in where it is suppose to, so no worry there. Speaking from 10 years experience and work on them every day.

Check disc


The DVD player's laser pickup assembly is intermittent and since it is brand new and under warranty take it back for replacement. There should be no issue with your TV set.

HDMI cables are actually wonderfully simple to connect. Once you have connected one end to the TV and one end to the DVD player, you will simply need to change your input channel using your TV's remote. Find a Input or Video source button and press it until the screen says HDMI. Now your TV may have several HDMI ports so you may have to try a couple HDMI channels before you find the right one.

Hope that helps!

I have a toshiba tv and a sony dvd player and i want to know how to install the jacks and if i need the hdmi cord


It really all depends on what else you may have hooked up and, what inputs you have on your TV. If you have an open HDMI in on your TV, I would use that because you will get your sound and vidoe with one cable(HDMI). If you don not have an open HDMI port on your TV, component cables are the your next best option video wise. The component cables do not carry sound so, you would have to get your sound by using,(best) digital optical or RCA. After looking at your player, your best picture would be using component and, it says it has SPIDF out but doesn't exactly specify what kind but, if you don't have the component cables, use youe RCA jacks(yellow), video out, and red and white(left and right audio) out from player to suitable input on TV. If I looked at the right player, there is no HDMI out on it.

How to install a video machine if I don't have the tv remote?


I'm assuming by "video machine" you mean some kind of DVD player or Blu-ray player or something of the like. I will explain how to install a DVD player. There are two major cables: one sends the video to the TV and the other sends power to the DVD player. The power cord plugs into the wall with the other end attached to the DVD player. The video cable plugs into the TV. If you have an HD television, the video cable will have a male HDMI piece that plugs into the TV while the other end of the cable plugs into the DVD player. If you don't have an HDTV, then you will use an RCA cable which has three prongs: Yellow, White, and Red. These three colored male prongs plugs into the corresponding color coded holes in the TV. The other end goes into the DVD player. When you have everything plugged in correctly and the DVD player is on, all you have to do now is change the TV input. You will need the TV remote that came with your TV, or a universal remote that has been configured to work with your TV. Find a button on your remote that reads "Source" or "Input". This will cycle through the sources and inputs of your TV including AUX, VIDEO1, VIDEO2, etc. Keep going until you are on the correct input to see the DVD player menu. Good luck!

How to tune in for blu ray dvd


You do not tune in your Bluray player but connect using an HDMI cable or Composite cable. If you have a HDMI cable connect the Bluray's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI in at the back and using the TV's remote switch the Input source to HDMI. You will see the image from the Bluray player in high definition.
If you don not have a HDMI cable connect the composite out of the Bluray player using the Yellow/Red/White cable to the TV's composite input ( same three color sockets ) and switch to AV input on the TV. Using this connection won't give you high definition image but will work OK.

I would try hooking something else up to your tv that is hdmi compatible. If your tv looks fine, then you know it would be the dvd player. If it's the dvd player, then I would suggest getting a different brand completely. I have had alot of bad experiences myself and other people as well when it comes to the philips brand
