My sanyo flat screen no longer detects my laptop or chromecast hdmi cords, but will my dvd player. It has been working form months, until the other day. I have checked my cords and switched them all around on the plug-ins in the back of the tv. It only detects the dvd player even when I used the dvd hdmi cord on the laptop. Help

If it will detect your DVD player using any cord or slot but not your laptop, then I would suggest the laptop slot out is faulty. Try someone elses laptop to make sure the TV hasn't developed a specific machine fault.

SOURCE: Sound problems with Insignia Flat Screen 37

It may be that the set is set for alt sound. go to the menu and set the audio to stereo. If the audio is set wrong it thinks you are set for spanish and if the broadcast is not in an alt language there will be no sound.

SOURCE: Getting the TV to play through the HDMI cord

First, you need to set the playstation to display on HDMI out.

Plug the HDMI cable into the TV and into the PS3.

Use the PS3 to setup the video settings to 720p which every HDTV can display. Then switch the TV-out to HDMI and it should display.

Also consult your televisions manual to set it up for HDMI input as well. Make sure that the TV allows sound through the HDMI port as some older HDTV's didn't have that ability.

If you still have a problem; please let me know! I hope it helps you out

SOURCE: DVD plays only in black and white

Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos LC-46d65U HDMI connect

First off a little tip that manufacturers don't tell you is that you HAVE to TURN OFF the POWER to ANY UNITS that you are Connecting to via HDMI!!!!!!! If not you can short out the Inputs!!!!!!!! HDMI is usually Automatic, But sometimes you need to go into the Menus on all Devices to the HDMI section and write down their settings and compare them. Any definition that you are not sure of check the Manual or Google it! Match all the Settings (there won't be Much!) Hopefully the Inputs were not Damaged it only takes one time to short it out and then the Repairman makes a few bucks! Good Luck!

I have only Chromecast connection to TV how do I get my dvd to play movies I have H DMI connected outet HDMI 2 used menu could play the dvd.


Use another input for the video and audio like the yellow input and the red and white audio on the TV (the 23 are grouped together). If the Player doesn't work then the player is defective. Picture of cable below

Will chromecast work with my dell d830 ?


Hi Michael,

You do not plug Chromecast into your laptop HDMI port, it is a video source, so you need to plug it into an HDMI port on your TV. Your TV is an HDMI target, the view side.

If you can run Chrome browser on your laptop, you can cast from your laptop to your Chromecast device and watch that frame on your TV.

Does that make sense? Have a look at the link below for more info.

Good luck!

Not a solution, but this will still allow you to watch DVDs until you carefully research customer feedback on DVD players. (Which I didn't do when I bought my DVP3962!)

That happened to me after 6 months. I used the A/V cables, then after a week or so I tried HDMI again. It worked for another 5 months, and is now crazy colors again.

You do not put your TV on any channel. DVD players need to connect to a TV with video cables and not a RF cable. This means 3 connection options on how your DVD player should connect to your TV. First, since your DVD player is NOT a bluray player, then HDMI connection is not needed. 2nd, the best choice would be component cables. These are the RED/GREEN/BLUE RCA connector that are on the back of your DVD player. They got into the input of your TV that has the RED/GREEN/BLUE RCA connectors. These are your video connector. Now, you need to connect the audio. Look for the RED/WHITE analog audio connectors out of your DVD player. Connector those to your AUDIO RED/WHITE input of the TV. Power on the DVD player and then power on your TV. Press the SOURCE or INPUT button on the remote for the TV until you see the DVD on the TV....The second option is the connect your DVD player up to your TV with composite video, YELLOW/RED/WHITE cable...
