Try using the RCA component cables instead of HDMI cable and check if that makes a diffrence. Also try and check if the cables are connected firmly.

Please elaborate your issue and also tell me the model number of your TV so that i can provide you with model specific information. Please do revert for further assistance.

    Please check the On Screen Display (OSD), make sure the appropriate input source is selected, e.g., cable or satellite, DVD player, VCR, game console or DVR. Set it as DVD player and try connecting your DVD player instead of cable or sattelite.

How can i unlick philips hotel tv 32hfl5662l/f7

How to switch your hotel Phillips 32HFL5662L/f7 to HDMI if you need to.
(I'm stuck in St Johns, Newfoundland, miles from the downtown....I must be bored)
1. You will need a serial DB9 M-F cable, your PC with a serial port and a terminal program like Hyper Terminal or Putty
2. Set your baud rate to 115200, n,8,1
3. Unplug the AC adaptor connecting the little smart box on the back of the TV. The TV may plug into this adaptor as well, so just plug the TV back into the wall. If you do not, the LCD TV will try to switch back to cable after you select HDMI.
4. Power on the LCD TV and you should see data on the PC screen in readable text.
5. You must send a carriage return after each command <cr> (the enter key on your PC)
6. Use only small letters (no caps)
i - info
u,d,l,r - Up, Down, Left, Right
p - PIP window toggle
To set to HDMI use the following sequence:
i <cr> (menu)
d <cr> (down)
d <cr> (down)
r <r> (right)
then use 'd' and 'r' to select the right input

Can i hook my 47inch tv to the monitor

You can't hook you TV to the monitor itself, rather the computer.
If your PC has a wide white connector (DVI) that is supplying signal to the monitor, you could use a DVI to HDMI adapter cable to connect your PC to your TV. This is also possible if your PC uses a small blue connector with 15 pin holes (VGA) by using a VGA cable to connect your PC to your TV.

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables

LC32OEM9 says Not Supported Format on HDMI Input. It worked when we first hooked up the TV. Then it started working sporadically now it very very rarely works and when it does it only works for maybe 15...

I'm thinking the Comcast DVR box maybe putting out weird HDMI signals and the TV can't translate it. I would call the Comcast people on this one.
In the meantime, I would try finding another source the uses a HDMI cable to rule out the TV as the problem. Basically, testing the TV to see if the problem still happens when you use something else than the Comcast box. Try a Blueray player, Playstation 3, or Xbox. Just something that uses a HDMI cable.
