Ould actually be the way you've got it plugged in...untangle the cords and don't plug everything into one power strip. Did you use your old power cord from the old computer, if so make sure your using the new one that came with the computer...use all the new cords.

Please provide the TV make and model and the same for any set-top box (or wherever the HDMI cable connects to from the TV). Thanks.

    You may need to change either or both your tuner's output and/or your TV's input to progressive scan instead of interlaced, and then try again.



    Some TV's also require you to go to the correct channel or channel mode (like AV1, AV2, PC, HDMI, etc) in order to show the picture connected to the HDMI port.



    If these don't help please let us know.

    Try turning the TV on without the HDMI, and then use your remote control to access the menu on-screen. It should have some settings for HDMI or progressive scan. See if any of those help. Then reconnect the tuner with HDMI.



    Similarly, you can change the video mode to HDMI or similar to try and get it to use the HDMI port. Mayeb there's an A/V mode?

Hi there,

Isn't the HDMI port on the TV an input? You seem to be trying to use it as an output.

Thanks

I am receiving a CABLE NOT CONNECTED error when I connect my vga monitor to my laptop using an VGA to HDMI cable


If you actually have a cable with HDMI on one end and VGA on the other, it will probably not work. HDMI uses a digital signal and VGA uses an Analog signal, there needs to be some circuitry somewhere that handles the conversion. You are probably getting Cable Not Connected because the monitor is scanning for an Analog signal and not recognising the digital signal coming in over the VGA port.

No signal from HDMI mode when I switch on the TV


HDMI is an input to the TV not an output. You select the appropriate input e.g hdmi 1, hdmi 2 on the remote. There can be a return signal the other way but the cable has to support that. Try a different hdmi cable.

VGA has only analog video signal. It is not digital and does not have any audio either.
HDMI is a digital connection standard with both digital video and digital audio signals.
A cable with a VGA connector on one end and a HDMI connector on the other still needs a converter box to convert the analog signals into the digital signals required for the TV's HDMI. Click on the following link to go to web page titled VGA to HDMI Cable - An Unfortunate Myth

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


Hello

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
OK

I just got a new Optoma HD20 and only after 1day of use it is not showing HDMI signal, although it is showing VGA signal. Why is this?


Hi miracles4all: I solved HDMI signal issue in my Optoma HD20. In my case it was the lack of contact between the HDMI cable plug male ending and the Optoma HD20 HDMI female port. My 35ft cable plug male HDMI ending was not completely "seating" in the Optoma HD20 HDMI female port. I solved the problem by purchasing a HDMI female to female coupler and adding a 3ft HDMI cable that had a slim male ending. This 3ft HDMI extension cable made better contact to the Optoma HDMI port and the projector was immediately able to detect HDMI signal. Hope this helps you... kaufmanekpr

LG W2361V 23 Vga to HDMI Cable Not Working


You have a cable problem as no such thing as a VGA to HDMI cable exists.

HDMI is a didital signal and is thus not compatable with an anolog VGA signal. HDMI to DVI cables however do exist as both are digital signals.

Hope this helps.

Can i connect a dvid cable from the monitor to my flat screen tv hdmi to watch videos from my computer? Thank you Martin


the Flat Screen TV if has, a HDMI input, also has VGA Input.

You must choose :HDMI or VGA, if HDMI The VGA board must Have HDMI Connector, and you connect a HDMI cable to the TV.

The HDMI is a digital signal input/output, VGA is Analog Signal. You must have Signal Converter if you Use the 2 signals

HDMi ( no signal, not supported) doesn't work with Dmr-Ez47v


Any HDMI cable manufactured in the last couple of years should all be HDMI 1.1 compliant, your problem is most likely the logic board in the TV itself or the HDMI connector on the logic board has a bad connection..

Have you tried hooking-up a standard DB15 VGA cable to the AKAI TV and your laptop?

If this works your problem is in the TV and will most likely have to be repaired to receive the HDMI signal since your Panasonic DVR and your laptop are not recognized by the HDMI input on the TV.

Good luck!
