Get yourself a Video card with a TV output connector maybe AGP or IDE card, and then using the software that came with the card set it up for TV out... thats really the only way ya can get TV out to your other devices.

Why has audio failed?

DVI does not have the means to provide audio - it is video only (like the VGA connector on your computer monitor). HDMI on the other hand provides video AND audio signals.

My son threw a golf ball at our Sanyo LCD - 42" -

I assume you meant the screen is now broken.
Some things to consider:

1. Replace the son with one who does not throw golf balls in the house. Ha ha! [jk]
2. Check to see if the warranty (usually online if you don't have the original paperwork) covers screen breakage, or ask the store where you bought the tv if there is anything they can do.
3. If the warranty is a no-go, contact the tv manufacturer and see why they may do... what the cost would be to repair etc. Some screens are covered in case they crack, but it is probably obvious it wasn't a manufacturer's defect if a golf ball hit it.
4. If those steps don't work out, check videos or info online to see if this is a job you or a techie could do - (in last case scenario).
5. If none of these check out, sadly, you might be left with a very large, expensive doorstop.
Good luck.

Hi, When I connect my Samsung RF711 laptop to my Sanyo LCD-42XR9DA TV HDMI to HDMI, and source the HDMI 1 input and press OK I do not get any laptop display on the TV screen at all. I have spoken to both...

I suspect that the TV can't read the signal from the computer on the HDMI port. You would get a signal from a VGA connection. (Computers send a slightly different signal over HDMI than a DVD or blu-ray player.)

In general, when connecting a TV to a computer, turn off both devices before connecting the video cables. Then turn on the TV and set it to the source (with the no signal message). Then turn on the computer. Next set the computer to output the video on the external video port. (Depending on the laptop, you may need to enable the port in the BIOS. To access the BIOS, press Esc, F1, F2 or F10 repeatedly as you turn on the computer. The key depends on the brand of computer.) Next set the video output in the OS (depends on the OS). For Windows 7, right click on the desktop (anywhere there are no icons or running programs), select Graphics Properties and set the desired monitor choice (laptop monitor, external monitor, both or extended). Click Apply and then confirm this when the display changes. (At least this works for my HP laptop on the VGA port.; my desktop lets me change monitors under Screen Resolution.)

The manual for the TV is available here: .

I wish that I had better news for you.

The TV wont come on at all, the power source is good The model # is DP19648 Sanyo Is there a reset button on TV?

d cooper, Because your unit is small screen type, You should visit YOUTUBE and view video clips of cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd computer monitors being repaired. Your unit is subject to the same type of internal "switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter ballast" circuit problems as are lcd monitors. Search terms at youtube are: "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" Then look for and view lcd tv repair video clips. Inspect your unit for "bad" (failed) electrolytic filter capacitors on the AC to DC switch mode multiple output power supply board. May have "open" fuse inside near or on the smps board. If "open fuse" the next question is why??? 12fixlouie

Your computer may be sending out a video signal that's too high of a resolution for your TV to display. Try reducing the resolution of the computer video signal.

Can't get sound when used as computer monitor

comp sound Tv

Your cable must be a minijack to 2RCA. Minijack connected at line out on computer and 2RCA at AV1 in or other available port in on TV (white and red socket). That is sound only. Video will be yellow (or vga/DVI/HDMI depending on graphic card)from your graphic card to AV1 in. same port as sound. Now select AV1 on tv. If no picture on tv make sure you computer graphic card is set for dual display .
