Question about Element Electronics Televison & Video

Faulty HDMI Port

HDMI ports on tv are faulty. When I connect xbox or computer through HDMI cord, the television will not recognize the device, or will take a long time (5-15 minutes) to link up to the device. The issue is not the cord, as I have tried changing the cords out, and the computer recognizes that it is connected to the tv.

SOURCE: ilo 27 inch hdmi/dvi hd tv monitor

Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector. Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution. Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

SOURCE: TV wont detect HDMI Devices except a pc.

Something is wrong whith the HDMI jack it's self, or the electronic switching is not sensing a signal is present. In either case the board that has the HDMI jack you are using needs to be replaced. Most all these boards are double printed, Multi-layered or both which prevents replacing the jack it's self. I do have a question though, do you only have on HDMI jack on the unit or do you have another one available.

SOURCE: My Philips 42PFL3603D/27 that does not connect to hdmi device.

At the rear or side of the PC there should be either or both of a 15 Pin DIN Plug, HDMI socket. or a Yellow RCA or 4 -7 pin DIN. Now IF these are present then YES you can connect to a TV. Now some TV's have a connector a DB15 MALE, so that the cable from the PC to the TV, is DB15. this plugs in directly, with appropriate DB15 cable. This, however, will ONLY take the VIDEO to the TV, Audio is delivered via the "Audio Out" Jack on PC, and Plugged into the AV Sockets on the TV, with a dual cored coaxial cable, they are Red & White. Some PC's also have a Yellow RCA Connector, OR a 4 -7 Pin DIN Socket, that requires a Special Adapter Cable (That generally came with the unit, and are colored and marked as to output) to use, for Video/Audio Out to TV. This signal is Composite or SVHS Video & Stereo Out. This connects up TO the TV's Composite/SVHS input Jacks and the Red & White Audio IN, RCA Jacks, &/or DIN SVHS socket.
First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get the adapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correct TV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you need to "Enable" that Monitors, the TV's, Desktop. You need to set either a "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "Display Settings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/output display settings. Adjust the screens resolution via the resoloution "Slider", it is best to start with, 800x600 32 bit color. or even lower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution, your TV can handle, find out from manual. Once it is all connected up. It should all just work great. Now, from then on, &, to get it to work every-time, the process is. Turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON. Then, startup the PC up. It should "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor & One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop appear after a bit. Now you have screen 1 & screens 2. Now, if you are using "Cloned" mode, then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed on the TV. If you used Spanned, mode, in this mode, however, you will have to."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, you have one "Big Desktop". Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of those have thier OWN, Control Panel, this, all then can make it all a lot easier to do it. So I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, or just want to do it by hand, then the the "By Hand" method is the only way.There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control over dual displays, and is well worth installing.

Vizio Model M470SV HDMI port nor working (won't recognize dvd player,Xbox,play station etc)


This unit has four HDMI ports. Input is not automatically set to the port that your devices are connected to. Take a look at the markings that correspond to the port that your peripherals are connected to, then use the Remote Control to change the respective HDMI port.

With your external device connected and turned on, press the HDMI button on the Remote Control several times in succession until the proper HDMI port is displayed. Output from your device should now be displayed on the screen.

Hook up xbox 360 tv


What kind of receiver? Do you have anything else like DVD player going thru receiver? My receiver has 3 hdmi in and 1 out (to tv) so all those equipment would just go to "hdmi" on tv.
Another way to do it is put your tv on exterior audio... for all sound to go thru your receiver.

Redlines usually mark for a failing part.

You don't mention if this lcd is used from external source or just as a plain tv. I would suggest trying different input port if hdmi is used.

Possibilities: faulty external cable, faulty input port, faulty internal cable, faulty internal board or connection, faulty screen

WestingHouse HDMI port wont work with PC but will for xbox 360?


You should never try to connect any cables when the devices are on. Always try to connect inputs or outputs after switching the devices off manually. Looks like the input port has gone bad. Try switching off the monitor, removing the plug and leaving it for 48 hours and retry. If you notice problems still, it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician.

I am not getting a signal on my tv when I connect to the receiver using an HDMI cable. What do I do?


First eliminate sources. For example, test another source like a dvd player / xbox,playstation gaming system, etc. If your tv recognizes these sources then it is a problem with your reciever and not the tv. If the tv does not recognize the other devices you tested then the hdmi port on your tv is bad.

Have you tried using another HDMI device with any success on the same port? It would be good trying something else on your TV just to make sure the TV isn't the problem.

Also, try turning your PS3 off, then, while it is off, hold the power button down for about 5 seconds. The system will beep, and it will reset the video settings. Try your HDMI setting one more time, but this time set it to 720 p to make sure the resolution isn't too high for your television.

If none of this works, you could possibly have a faulty HDMI port on your PS3. I've seen it happen before.

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.
