John, I've ran into this issue a couple of times myself. In most cases, there are easy fixes to the issue. #1, Does your TV have multiple HDMI inputs? They may be labeled HDMI1, or HDMI2, etc. I know this sounds strange, but many people don't realize that the signal source is important. #2, Connect the cord, from another device that you know works(laptop-monitor) to eliminate the possibility that your HDMI cord is bad. #3, (Probably most common) The PS3 is not the most stable platform when using the HDMI cord. Remember that the PS3 was one of the "pioneering" platforms using the HDMI connection.As such, the "auto-detect" feature is sometimes confused when switching between RCA inputs, and HDMI input. (Happens every time actually) To fix this, try a video reset on your PS3 system. It's fast, easy, and doesn't effect anything except the video/audio settings. I'll put in a link to get you started in that direction. It is the same with all models of PS3. Good luck! ^^

I am trying to hook my AOC tv up to my samsung bd-5900 Blu ray/ DVD player with hdmi cord but it still says no signal I don't know what else to do


The owner's manual says not to connect the power cord of the samsung until after you have made the HDMI connection. Try disconnecting the power cord for a few minutes. When you plug in and turn on, all should be well.
If that does not work, you may have a bad HDMI cord - try another one.

My screen wont work i tried a hdmi cable but wouldnt work what do i do?


If you can get a display with the default setup (original cords) follow this procedure:

a) Plug in BOTH the HDMI cord and the other display cords to your TV.

b) On your TV, using the disignated video input (not HDMI) you should have the main screen

c) Go to settings, and then display settings. Set up your display to read HDMI. Your screen will go dark.

d) Quickly change your TV input from video to HDMI and it should still be displayed. Save the changes.

e) Shut off the system, unplug the original cords leaving in just your HDMI cord and your designated audio cord (preferably fiber-optic).

f) Turn it back on and you should be good to go.

I want to connect my denon 790 to my 5:1 surround, HDMI DVD player and HD samsung 55'' LCD. what cables do i need and where to put them. thanks


You will need 1 HDMI cable to link between your DVD player and the Denon,plug the HDMI cord into the HDMI port on the back of your DVD player and the the other end into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled DVD,then you will need another HDMI cord to go between the Denon and your LCD TV,plug one end of the HDMI cord into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled HDMI monitor out and the other end into one of the HDMI ports on the back of your TV, it doesn't matter which one you use, just remember that you will have to change the input on the tv to that specific HDMI port when you play back a DVD and you will also have to change the Denon to DVD as your source to send the audio through the Denon to your surround sound speakers.( The Denon owners manual will help!!)
