Composite Input Not Receiving Signal

I got this tv the the day and I was watching Netflix on it and all was fine until today when I went to hook up my PS3 to the composite input and it shows nothing but the words "No Signal" on the screen. I know its the TV because I tried other things in the com. input and nothing still. Please help me!

    I found out that the device was set to use the HDMI. So what had to happen is I needed an HDMI cable to see the system and then I could go into the system and set it to use the other.

Check the cable connected in between. Replace the cable and check.

SOURCE: Connecting an LCD TV to a computer to use as TV and Comp. Monitor.

Im no expert on the subject, but I use my L37 for a monitor, and use just the vga adapter. It works good as a monitor, and both dvds and my hdtv wonder tuner card look great through the vga connection. They do make adapters for dvi to hdmi. Although, hdmi also carries sound, but you wont get that out of your dvi output from your card. So you might not have sound when using that connection, as your tv may not look to the headphone type jack used for sound imput from your computer when you select the hdmi source on it. If you have speakers already connected to your computer you may not care. Also if you have a 720 p Vizio, 1366x768 is the highest resolution you are going to get out of it anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'm Not sure why you would need 2 connectios to the same monitor either. I posted 1 link below because they had several dvi to hdmi adapters. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: 42 in. vizio. just went blank. no sound or pic.

unplug it from the wall and hold down the power button for a few seconds to discharge any residual energy left inside the TV's electronics. Then plug it back in and see if there is any picture, even if only for a moment.

Some sets will have a reset sequence that restores all the factory defaults. This will sometimes bring your TV back around if it happens to get stuck on stupid. You'll have to search Google for your model's reset button sequence. Often it will be something like: With the power off, hold down the INPUT and VOL+ buttons at the same time. Click the power button and continue holding down the INPUT and VOL+ for a few seconds.

Your's may be different, or not at all.

I've seen this fix a TV before. But I've also seen this symptom on a TV that had a bad logic main board. Another thing to try would be a firmware update. See if your TV has a USB port available to do this. It will often be labeled as "SERVICE". Again, you'll need to search the web for more instructions, and for the firmware file itself. Often these can be obtained from the manufacturer's web site.

SOURCE: HDMI only works after warming up??

The HDMI inputs do a lot of hand shaking and while hand shaking they sometimes miss the grip. It is all about data and communication not being seen or understood. Sometimes it is a Software issue and the TV and or Dish Box needs the HDMI Software upgraded if available for the respected models. If the Component cables work well and they should, I would just use them. The picture quality is just as good and it works every time.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Vizio GV42LHDTV - No video inputs

my 42 also went black, and the "vizio" logo in front indicates as if it is turned on, it clicks on and off, but just has no output on the screen, meaning not a black screen, just a dead, no image, even when the system has clicked on

I tried turning off, on, unplugging, letting it sit (kind of like a reboot wishful thinking), removed all connections in back, (nothing still, not even the blue screen) just nothing.

What a shame, I had the unit less than 6 months, and now this? I have work to do, and I can't get it done.

No input signal on monitor-not connected to tv-computer works fine except for the no input signal


no input or signal means that the monitor is not receiving any signal from the CPU and if the power light is amber then and the cpu works fine then there could be a problem with the cable connecting the CPU and the monitor ...check the cable.

Im trying to connect my unit to my tv to record shows and i having trouble doing so please help i am hooking it up wrong


For OTA or CATV signals, you need to daisy chain the coax from the source (antenna for OTA) to the coax input on DVD recorder and then the coax out to the coax input of the TV. If you have a set-top cable box with an incoming CATV signal, it should be connected between the DVD recorder and the TV.

The unit can tune in and record 480i (SD) ATSC (OTA digital), NTSC (OTA analog), analog CATV and digital CATV channels.

A satellite receiver or a non-CATV cable box should get the incoming signal first and then have their composite video output (A/V) connected to the DVD recorder composite video input and then their coax (RF) output (if present) gets connected to the TV. For these, you would record from the IN1 or IN2 (press Select Input) instead of selecting a channel. Then connect the composite video out on the recorder to the TV's composite video in.

Digital signals are either enough to tune in or give no signal. So check that your antenna is correctly oriented for OTA.

Separately, you can connect the video signal when playing DVDs via composite (good signal) out and component out (better signal) out to the TV's matching input. For the component video, the sound is carried on a separate cable. Then set the TV to the input source.

In the case of wanting to watch a VHS tape while taping to a DVD, do not use the Component video source, set the TV to Input 1 (composite).

I hope this helps.

No signal


You have changed the input to a selection that does not have a signal. Look at where the cable goes into the TV, this should show the name of that input, then change input back to that exact one via your remote.

Check the back of your TV. Your cable is probably hooked into a Composite or HDMI input, I doubt they would install it directly to the TV's tuner, these days thats reserved for local antenna's.
