If you are running windows xp or linus i may not be able to help altought the problem might be solved in almoust the same way. For windows vista right click on the volume icon in the system tray icons and choose playback devices select HDMI output ( for 5920G is "Realtek HDMI Output" ) then press the "Set Default" button. The other way around is to go in the Control Pannel in the "Hardware and sound" cthegory and select sount than seth the default output to Realtek HDMI Output in the "Control Pannel Home" view, or in Classic view click/doubble click on "Sound" icon ( a speaker ) and do the same. In windows XP there is a similar approach. In linux go to System ->> Administration ->> Soundcard Detection and you should find a setting equivalent to the one in Windows

Easy fix. Select your digital audio out in sound settings on computer, then hook up HDMI cable to TV and computer. Then restart computer (that is the trick). You should be all set. Good luck

Connecting my laptop to my sansui 42" lcd tv via the hdmi cable, i get clear picture but no sound


Does your laptop feed sound through the HDMI connection? You may have to use the HDMI 1 jack on the HDLCD3200. Change the HDMI setting in the audio menu on the tv to DVI and run a seperate audio cord from the laptop to tv. I hope this is helpful

Hey iJust bought a 42 inch Phillips lcd tv And i am trying to attatch my lToshiba E100 Satllite lap top to it via the HDMI ports on both the tv and laptop but nothing is happening


When you have the tv connected and both on, Switch the TV to the HDMI feed then press the [FN] key and hold and start pressing the [F4] key counting to 10 between presses. You have to tell the computer bios to activate the external port and send video signal to that port.

Issue playing audio from AcerTravelMate6593 on Phillips37PFL7603D


You need to run the audio out to an amplifier such as a stereo unit. The computer doesn't have enough power via the line out to make the TV pick up the sound by itself unless you turn the volume all the way up and maybe not even then, so an amplifier is your answer. It work for me.

No image on hdtv


First off, is the tv set to use the hdmi input? if not, change tv to hdmi input and try again. If still no good, you likely need to tell the laptop to use the hdmi connector. Try this:
  1. connect hdmi from laptop to tv and select hdmi input on tv.
  1. while holding the blue fn key (bottom left side of kbd) press and release the F5 key. This will toggle the laptop between the laptop lcd display, external connectors (vga/hdmi), or both simultaneously. Let me know if this works or not.....

No sound via TV when PC connected


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.
