SOURCE: Trying to hook compaq presario laptop to philips lcd digital tv

hey fox,
sounds to me like a connection problem. If the compaqs output is vga, you need to convert the input (tv side ) to hdmi, component, s-vidio... what ever you can find. Typically when you hook up your computer to a flat screen or such, its best to try to use the hdmi ports or the rpg. But if thats not available you need to take the outout from your laptop ( whatever type that might be and input it into your flat screen tv. If you input laptop into tv under ( eg..HDMI) then when you VIEW it you need to select the correct source on your flat screen. Such as hdmi or pcmi or rpg.I know that the do sell alot of cables that adapt from one type of connection to another. Typically only one cable is required from the laptop to the flat screen. If you think about it you are only using the flat screen as a monitor.

You have to configure yout laptop to output through the s-video (which does not carry sound, so you need to either use the laptop speakers for sound, or the line output (headphone jack) to the TV).
I don't know if all toshibas are the same, but with mine, if I hold Fn (near the windows key) and press F5, it will change the output, do it a few times until you see a picture on the TV, some settings make this your extended desktop, meaning you can drag a window from one screen to another.

SOURCE: TELEVISION - PS3 AND XBOX HDMI COMPATIBILITY

You have to use the scart connector for on screen menu settings. Go to the video option and enable HDMI and/or match resolution output to your set.
You did not mention the model of the TV so here is another scenario,
Just because the TV is 1 year old doesn't mean that it is a 1080p capable, you could have set the HDMI resolution settings to 1080p and you will not get any picture if your set cannot process the information.

Hey - I'm in the same boat, did you get it working? I connect and get the USB menu up, but the tv says that the file is corrupt, even though the iPod works fine when it's not connected to the tv.

SOURCE: "No Signal" Message when using HDMI Inputs on 26" Proscan LCD TV

You MUST get HDMI Driver for your Video Card, it is NOT standard. You need to go to PC makers web site and download latest Video Divers for your PC, then you must set up Multiple Desktops, To do that you must first connect the TV, but leave OFF, connect up to PC, reboot, setup Video Card, turn ON TV, TV will have already been detected, On PC, Share the desktop, or Clone, whatever you wish, now reboot after saving settings. Now you set the TV for HDMI already and it should show you a desktop when chosen. You must select and setup TV, FIRST, then connect the PC. From then on, Turn the TV ON, then turn the PC ON, that way it will Always detect the HDMI port.

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite C55 and im trying to connect it to an INSIGNIA tv. Can someone tell me how to connect it so I can watch movies. I have a DVI cord (HMDI 2)?


Your best bet is to get an HDMI cable. The Insignia TV (you don't give a model #) SHOULD have an HDMI port. The Toshiba does as well. HDMI can support HDTV and also carries the audio signal so you won't need two sets of cables to connect.

How do i play movies from a tablet i plugged a hdmi cord but no response


You mentioned a "usb cable" but you cannot connect an external display to a tablet's USB ports. If you are using an HDMI cable, then you will need to select which display is active through the tablet's settings (Android) or control panel (Windows) and also make sure that the TV is set to the appropriate HDMI connection through the input selection.

Did you go to the input button on your remote and set the TV to HDMI port number you plugged into? They are numbered 1-4 etc depend on how many HDMI ports the TV has.

I have a Philips 47" flat screen it has HDMI


First of all you must check that your laptop supports a protocol called "DHCP" over DVI. Otherwise you are chasing your tail. This information will probably be in the manual or available online. DHCP is a special handshake protocol for HDMI and your television and computer will not talk to eachother without it. If you find it to be compatible you need to lock down which input on the TV it is. Plug something in via HDMI and verify you see it. Then unplug it and plug your computer into this port. You don't want to be flicking through inputs trying to find it. Also, hook up an external monitor to the laptop and figure what needs to be done to display on it. Then try the television. My guess, though, is that you won't find DHCP compatibility if it is an older laptop. My best advice is to buy a Playstation 3 and watch Netflix with that. Otherwise you'll need a different way of hooking up which might include buying an expensive converter box and/or watching poor quality video.
-Good luck

I'm trying to play movie files through my toshiba lcd tv via a usb and it won't work. i've tried converting mvi and wmv files to mpeg or avi and still won't play. can you tell me which type of file works...


You have not mentioned the TV model #.. If your TV does not play avi. files I am sorry to tell you it does not support moving pictures -- it only supports MP3 music files and JPEG picture files !!. Try these two to confirm.

How can i watch movies from my laptop onto my tv using the hdmi cord.. i dont get picture or sound..


make sure you are using a highspeed HDMI cable to connect the laptop to the TV, then set your TV input to HDMI/digital. Then set your default playback device on the laptop to HDMI to make sure signal goes from the laptop video controller to the TV. hope this helps, feel free to rate how useful the info is to you

Watch movies from computer to tv


look on the back or sides of the unit. it should have a hdmi cable hookup, it will look like a monitor input, then you have to make sure you set the tv input to that. then you have to set your laptop to add another monitor to be able to use it.
