I have the same problem with my 42PD6600. Spoke to the gents at Hitachi who tell me there is no automatic way to do this so you have to scroll manually to the correct source via the remote.

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.

You may be the proud owner of devices that subscribe to the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC for short). These devices, via the HDMI cable, can read each others needs. If a CEC supported DVD is connected to your HDTV and the player is powered on, your HDTV will automatically change to that input ( eg: HDMI 2). Conversely if your HDTV is on and you change input to HDMI 2 the DVD player will turn on.

You could try the "masking tape over the TV's IR eye" to see if there is any extraneous Infra Red in the room that might be causing the problem? If it stops check for bright or shimmering light bulbs or Compact Florescent Lights (CFL's)

The Samsung HT-C6530 receiver automatically switches from HDMI 1 input (satalite TV) to HDMI 2 (XBOX). Is there something wrong with the receiver or the HDMI cables?


Try unplugging both the cables, turning the receiver off, plugging one in and turning it back on. Repeat with the other cable. Switch out the cables. If you can't switch between them there is a problem with your receiver.

Unfortunately it does not automatically switch. Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. You can then configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to. You'll have to do the same thing when you take it back to your original location.

How do i access hdmi 2 on my lcd32761hdf tv. i have cable (virgin) in hdmi1, dvd in ext 1 & the wii in ext 2. i now have a ps3 i would like to set up.


You can't access it simply because it doesn't exist - your tv has only one HDMI jack.
Your only option is to use a HDMI switch, one like

No HDMi signal


I ran across this problem before. Turned out being a bad HDMI cable. The was one prong in the cable bent and caused the problem. Try a different cable first. Sometimes it is the simplest things that cause the problems.

My samsung blue flip cell phone, everytime I press 369 or#....


If you notice the 3,6,9, and # are all on the same column. There is probably some corrosion under the keypad from a spill or moisture. If cleaning the membrane switches won't work try replacing the keypad (the electronic portion, not the rubber). Repost if you need instructions. I can put some parts up on ebay for you too.

If you have to keep on changing the settings and the tv will not store them then there is a fault with the internal memory of the tv. If you can return the tv or call out a competant technician. Hope this helps.

All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
