SOURCE: hdmi input not working

Sounds like a failure on the main or av pwb in the TV. Do you have another component such as sat. rec or cable box to try with hdmi?

SOURCE: No surround sound when attaching hdmi to TV

Try running the optical TOSLINK cable from the TV to the receiver. If the TV doen't have a digital optical output, then try going into the menu on your cable box and setting the audio output to the digital optical out. Also check your TV menu and make sure NETCOMMAND is diabled. Some of your newer HDTV have Netcommand that allows the TV to control other devices through the HDMI cable.

SOURCE: Cannot get a connection with HDMI input

When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.

There are a number of things to check here:

1) Verify that the resolution on the PC is set to a supported level for the TV. Usually the TV will show "no signal" if the resolution is out of range or the message "out of range" will appear.

2) You don't indicate whether you are connecting to a desktop or laptop. If a laptop, you may need to turn on the external monitor. This is done by using the function key and either F5 or F6 (the key should have a picture of a screen on it). Hitting this combination will toggle between the main screen with.without the external monitor.

3) Verify that the TV port is selected correctly (AV1,AV2 etc)

4) You will need a separate cable or the audio regardless of the system type. Also verify that the audio cable is in the corresponding audio input jacks for the video option selected.

If you have completed the above and it still doesn't work, please post the details about the computer being used and the exact cable setup that you have and I'll check into this further.


Thanks,
Dan

I have sound but no picture


Check your connections between your Roku box and your TV more than likely you have the audio cables plugged into the wrong jacks, Using a single HDMI cable would eliminate this issue if you have an available HDMI input on your TV. Notice which jacks are the audio output jacks on this pic, make sure these are connected to the input on your TV, the ONLY time you don't use these jacks id if you are using the HDMI connection, they are REQUIRED for composite video, component video (high def color) and S-video.

No picture on Samsung HP-R5052


Just a couple of things to try:
You say you tried another cable box and a roku. Are you using the same cables? Are you using hdmi, component or coax cables? Could be a bad wire. True high def tv 1080 requires an hdmi cable for the best picture. The next best choice is the component cable. This is a triple cable with red, green, & blue and provides 720 resolution. The least quality is the coax wire which will only provide low def standard quality picture. Sometimes people hook up 1, 2, or all 3 of these choices not knowing what it all means. If thats the case with your tv it may just be a matter of selecting the correct input on your tv with your remote. On your samsung remote there should be a button for input. Try pushing that button and make sure it's set to hdmi or component, whichever your using. If none of this, is it possible the plasma tv itself is defective?

Hdmi cable cables


Have you looked at your tv for HDMI inputs? What do you want to connect to it? There are two kinds of Hi def cables, one has five rca cables ...3 for video and 2 for audio. The other is for a standard HDMI cable. Your tv should have one or both types of inputs. Converting to HDMI cables will not solve anything, because even some HDMI sources do not embed audio on the cable. Converters that do embed cost several hundreds of dollars, but you must have compliant TV's and devices you wish to connect to be sure they will work..

Is there any alternative to using hdmi input to the tv


Yes, there are several ways to connect to the tv. HDMI is the (NEWER) way to connect the console. The reason being, is because HDMI carries both video and audio. The standard way to connect is by using the provided (RCA) cords that came with the system. They connect by splitting the video(yellow) and audio(white=left red=right) Almost all tv's out now have either HDMI or the audio/video inputs, and are typically cable ready.(little threaded plug in the back that your cable box hooks into) You can purchase a cable ready adapter from game stop or even use the one from an existing PS2 or PS1. They all use the same adapter from the system. The only difference is, if you don't connect with HDMI then you are NOT going to have high def available. It will be in standard def all the time. The final way to connect is a bit difficult. It requires a bit of knowledge in what your doing. HDMI to a HDMI adapter to DVI-I or DVI-D monitor. Some tv's come equiped with a DVI-D input so it can double as a monitor for a computer. This way WILL give you HIGH DEF and arguably the best picture you will ever get because you can set the frame rate (frpm) your self. Hope this info is useful. Good luck. ^^

I have the same set, same problem with one of my MOTOROLA boxes, but not with another. I have a SONY TV that works fine with this new MOTO box, but the new VIZIO does not. The audio is coming through the HDMI cable just fine, and the fact that it works when you cycle power on your TV means it's the SYNC between the TV and the BOX. I have the identical problem and am taking back the MOTO box for another one. I spoke to VIZIO for about 45 minutes trying different things. They think it's the MOTOROLA box, COX (my cable company) thinks it's this particular box, who knows.

What cables do I need to connect my toshiba satellite m55 laptop to my hi def tv?


This really depends on the connectsionon your hi def TV. The laptop doesn't have an HDMI port (these ports carry sound and video in one cable), but it does have a VGA out port as well as a s-video out.

You can connect an s-video cable from your laptop to your hi-def TV, if the TV has an s-video input port.

You can also purchase a VGA to Component converter if your hi-def TV has component inputs, these are the Red, Green, Blue inputs. Amazon sells these, here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Premium-VGA-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B000RJLSZU

If you have a DVI input you can purchase a VGA to DVI converter as well. These are very inexpensive and you can find a wide selection on Amazon, here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=vga+to+dvi

Finally, you can also purchase a VGA to HDMI converter. This would be the most expensive option, but you can use this box to put both sound and video from the laptop onto the HDMI cable. YOu would need both the converter and cable for this to work. Converter is here: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Audio-HDMI-Converter-Adapter/dp/B0015YWV1G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263068538&sr=1-3
Cable is here: http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-meter-foot-cable-1080P/dp/B0002L5R78/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_b

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

42" pansonic plasma hdmi problem


if I understand your question properly.. its because your direct tv output doesnt broadcast in high def so its giving you the standard tv definition inputs which are RGB or Component.so you will lose picture quality cos its running at fewer lines or pixels. hope this helps
