1 Answer

No sound via TV when PC connected

Hi, I've recently updated the firmware on my 42pfl7603d and since then when my PC is connected I don't get any sound, i've assigned the audio input to HDMI 2 etc. and tried connecting my ipod for an alternative sound source and cable but no luck. I'd appreciate any help! Thanks, Andrew

    The PC output is DVI and it goes into the TV as a HDMI, I also have a 3.5mm jack at both ends, one of which goes into the PC input on the TV.

    Thanks for your interest,

    Andrew

1. Ensure the TV is set to "home" mode in the user menu. If set to "Shop" it will not retain audio settings change

2. verify that the Audio out from the PC is working. Use a set of headphones just to verify

3. Triple check that you have the audio input assigned to the correct HDMI input

4. after doing these if it still doesn't work, I would suspect the Software update had a side affect that phillips is not aware of. Since this function would probably be missed by Phillips software testers, it is highly likely that this is possible. Contact phillips and let them troubleshoot the problem with you. Let them know it happed after you did the update also and let them know that you have verified the audio out from the PC.

Why did it freeze during software update?


Here is some help on a Sharp Aquos. You pull the plug and update manually.


Sharp Aquos Firmware Update Issue and Resolution I recently had problems with my Sharp Aquos LC-60LE632U and firmware update 311U1204061. When I attempted to run the Netflix app, I was told that I couldn't proceed unless I updated the firmware. After 2 attempts to update the firmware via the network, I turned to Google and found that this was a common problem. In order to resolve the issue, you'll need to update the firmware manually, via a USB thumb drive. See the following instructions:

  1. Go to the Sharp USA product download site
  2. After you choose your TV model, download the firmware file
  3. View the rest of the instructions found here

Are the screen and computer sharing the same power supply, on a 4-gang multiplug or similar?
What else is plugged in to the same supply?
Have you got another HDMI cable to try this with?
How is the audio connected - can that be changed to test it?
Have you another laptop or PC that you can connect to see if this is the TV or the laptop causing the issues?

My 22 lcd gives good picture but no sound.I've tried connecting an externel head phone but i don't hear any sound.


you're best bet is, depending on your TV's input/output, is to run your video components directly to TV via HDMI, component, etc., of course component requires additional sound cables, then run your sound out from TV via, best, digital optical, to reciever. You use the TV's menu to choose what you watch and, only have the one audio out. Scan your recievers menu to make sure you've got the right channel to listen to.

Hi, my reader is saying "android.process.acore has stopped" Force closing won't work. I know firmware update via zip file is available but it's midnight here and I don't have an sd card handy....


Sorry to hear your are having issues with your Cruz Reader. I have a Cruz Reader R101. Unfortunately you have to update via the SD card for the Cruz Reader. It doesn't do a firmware update from the USB cable.
If you don't want to try and update it now you could also try to just restart it. If you can't get it to restart normally you can remove the back cover and unplug the battery, then plug it back in.

I am connecting Yamaha DVD player to the Vizio M420 NV via HDMI. i have a picture but no sound. how do I gain audio when using HDMI?


HDMI has both Audio and Video (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and should carry both. However, I had this problem with a client just the other day and it turned out that the firmware on his TV needed to be up[graded. Different model TV, but I believe you may need to download the latest software/firmware update via your PC and put it on a flash drive and then flash the firmware on your TV to get it to work. Sorry I don't have the specifics; I was stumped and the Time-Warner guy ended up doing it. I hope this at least sends you in the right direction.

no, there's no firmware upgrade that you can do on the tv. the reason for that is because you are sending digital sound to the tv with hdmi from xbox 360,and when you have rca cables connecting your tv and surround sound, the rca cables provide stereo sound. what you need to do if you want to use hdmi is connect optical cable from tv orxbox 360/ or tv to your surround sound to get digital sound, and it will sound better digital sound.
