Question about Philips 26MF231D 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

TV will not receive any type of input

The USB firmware upgrade port never worked in the past. Now the HDMI or the cable port do not communicate with the TV. The menu seems to work when I press the menu button on the remote and the screen display of the menu seems to be normal.

Why doesn't my Emerson lf501em4f not recognize cable box HDMI?


Several things may be happening. Most likely, you need to adjust settings on the cable box for HDMI output rather than component or composite RCA. The same may be true for the TV. Did you check your input source setting on the TV? Also, go into the Video Settings menu and see if the TV asks for types of cable input for video, and audio settings for audio input from the HDMI.

Hmdi input has lost audio


several things could cause that:
1. hdmi cable is no good.
2. receiver and TV are not fully compatible. I noticed few times that philips tvs had problems with denon receivers. Some times you need o unplug hdmi cable and plug it in back to get sound.
3. firmware issue. depends on model of your receiver there could be a software upgrade to resolve the problem.
4. somebody (kids) accidentally pressed some buttons and reassigned video input for that video source (video select button on a remote control), etc. Resetting the receiver usually helps.
5 Receiver (hdmi board is no good) or TV is no good.
so next time when it happens check video source, video input assign then try to swap hdmi cable and TV

I cannot get the Input 3 HDMI port to work. The Input 3 Componet videoworks, but when I unplug the componet video and put in HDMI port nothing works. I do have something else in the HDMI Input 1 port...


Hi.

To start ensure that each time you connect or disconnect the HDMI ports both TV and connected device are off.

Also ensure that HDMI input is active, as detailed here.

HDMI connectors carry voltage, and connecting the HDMI cable while TV or device is on may easily damage the HDMI port, making it unusable.

The HDMI 3 and Component 3 are separate input. The component input may work, and HDMI port may still be defective.

To test the port do the following:

Disconnect TV power cord, and connected device (eg. Receiver, DVD etc.).
Leave units disconnected for five minutes.

While power is disconnected, test connecting on port three a device that was previously working on HDMI 1. Also use a cable that you know is working.

Connect back power with HDMI cable already connected. If HDMI 3 is still not detected, then the port is defective.

In that case ring Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual.This model is often advertised as only two HDMI inputs. Call Pioneer to ensure the third port can be enabled.

Only one HDMI port on new receiver/dvd player


Chances are good that your panasonic would not support HDMI 1.3b firmware and you would loose audio or video anyway. If your Panasonic has digital inputs, ie. coaxial digital or optical, run audio to your receiver and HDMI direct from Cable box/ DVD/other source to TV. On the TV settings menu, turn the speakers "off". If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you more

My olevia tv is not sensing the hdmi input right away.


HDMI has to be able to communicate with each other. In most cases the HDMI issue is with the device connected to the TV and not the TV itself. If you did firmware upgraded on the TV then the issue is with the laptop. Try the laptop on anther brand of TV and see what happens.

Hello, There is an update for your TV at Sony Support and I would strongly  recommend to call Sony Support to update your TV as firmware updating firmware is risky job for novice and TV firmware can be damaged and TV will shut down.

Connecting computer to tv using usb ports


You cannot,the best thing that you can do is to use the computers video card HDMI output to the HDMI input on TV. The USB is there for things like firmware updates and if your lucky,u may be able to plug in flash drive and view media through it. If your video card has SVIDEO you might be able to use that as well, but HDMI is the way to go if your serious about it, and an HDMI ready video card upgrade for your computer shouldnt cost more than $100,in fact 49 bux at STAPLES right now for a PCIex card.

Mitsubishi HDMI connection trouble


I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.

Sony STR-DA5300ES Audio Problem


I am posting this to try and get everyones audio problem for this receiver fixed. If you only connected the HDMI cable to the 510, you will not get sound. This receiver passes through HDMI only, no processing of audio. You must either connect a fiber optic or digital coax to the 510 for that respective HDMI input from the BD player, the DVD HDMI only accepts digital coax, and the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic. If you BD player does not have digital coax out for audio, you must move the connection to Video2 HDMI and connect fiber optic to the Video2 fiber input. Sony butchered the whole purpose of HDMI with this receiver. Hope this heps you. By the way, it is hardware, no firmware update will correct this.
