SOURCE: HDMI Signal gone

The HDMI interface may have suffered a malfunction, this offten happens due to stray voltages on the ground plane. If you do not have electronics experience I would suggest taking the set to the shop and having it repaired

SOURCE: PS3 been working fine over

TV Connectivity
The issue of connectivity between the PS3 and the display is very complex and depends on the type of TV (Analog, Digital or HD Ready), the maker of TV (until recently, only Toshiba TVs have component AV connections as standard in Europe, most other Euro TV sets use SCART which can not carry an HD signal) and specification of TV (the very latest HD Ready TV sets have wider connectivity options than earlier HD "capable" TVs from the same manufacturer which may have lacked HDMI), and finally the configuration of the PS3 model purchased.

What are you attempting to use HDMI for? Sometimes you have to adjust the settings of the system that is using the HDMI connection. The tv needs to reset to HDMI

SOURCE: hdmi inputs stopped working

It sound like the cable box or the Blue ray player is set to high - such as 1080P when the set is only rated at 720 - try scaling the output down and see if that helps

Toshiba large screen - connected to my laptop with an Auvio USB to HDMI adapter.


First confirm that you do not have a VGA connection for a PC in the back of your TV. Many PC's connect directly into the TV's with VGA connection provided. If only HDMI then a converter can be a reliable alternative.

A VGA to HDMI converter may be a better solution. This particular device identified in the link has the power from the USB of the laptop to operate, the sound from the audio out of the laptop, and assuming you have a VGA out for a monitor the connection to the converter will give you choice of resolution.

There are many different units available and the one in the ink is just an example.
Hope this helps?

How do I get the correctly connect from the DVD player to the TV set?


It depends on your TV's available inputs. If your TV has an HDMI port, you'll get the audio and HD video to your set with one cable if you invest in an HDMI cable; purchase the cable online (you don't need to pay $$$$ for the cable). Stores that specialize in cables will have the best picture. Press the HDMI select button on your remote to go through the resolution options for the DVD player. (see page 14 of the manual
If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port, check for component video. This will also give an HD picture to the TV. You'll need cables for the 2 RCA audio and 3 RCA (Red, blue, green) video plugs (or one cable with 5 RCA plugs) on each end of the cable. The mega-cables though can be a bit more difficult to plug in. Make sure that the colors match. (Some TVs use an adapter that consolidate the cable connection at the TV. You still need to match the colors at the adapter.)

If your TV only has composite in, you'll have an SD signal at the TV. This is the cable with one RCA plug (yellow) for video and the 2 RCA plugs (red and white) for audio. This cable is often included with the DVD player.
If your TV only has a coax connection (OTA tuner or analog cable), you'll need a Composite to RF converter. These used to be available at Radio Shack and can still be found online as well.
If some countries, the TV might have a SCART port. You can find a composite to SCART adapter.
The manual is available from Toshiba here: http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=2805086 . Select the Manuals and Specs tab. The file is a PDF; so you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file.

I hope this helps. If you need additional assistance, please add a comment with details of your TV.

(if your TV has an SD (480i) resolution, you probably only have the composite and coax inputs.)

I want to connect my computer to sony wega triniton kvxr29m80 from the hdmi or vga port to the tv's component or 3rc ports. is it possible..i have tried the hdmi to component cable and it does not...


An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.

You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).


I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

PIP function does not work, the settings is greyed out also! I have a wii, PS3 and freesat :)


Hi nikkicollier,
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.
derrickolz.png

I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
  • TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
  • PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
  • Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree.
To change your PiP settings:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
  2. Select PIP and press Enter.
  3. Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again.
    Note:
    If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
  4. Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button.
    Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button.
    Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to.
    Note:
    You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
You can download the full PDF manual for your TV here (large download at 26MB.) Much of the PIP information can be found on pages 13 and 14.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

I just want to know how to hook up a hdmi cord to an old big screen hitachi tv


You can't, at least not directly. Older sets don't have any HDMI inputs, only composite video (the yellow RCA jack) and possibly component video (red, green and blue RCA jacks). Converters that take an HDMI input and generate the necessary video outputs are available, but they aren't cheap. And don't fall for the adapter cables you might find advertised with an HDMI plug on one end and RCA plugs on the other that supposedly convert the signal for you. HDMI can only be converted with some active electronics; a simple cable just won't work. If you want to hook and HDMI-only device to your old Hitachi, you'll need the converter.

How do I hook the dvd player to the tv???


If your TV has composite video inputs, use the A/V cable that came with the player. Connect the black mini-plug to the AV out on the left side of the DVD player. The other side has standard composite video (RCA jacks); connect the yellow plug to a composite video in jack on the TV. Then plug the red and white plugs to the matching Audio in for that composite video connection. If you do not have the adapter, get a replacement like: http://dynexproducts.com/products/cables-cords-adapters/DX-AV071.html .

If your TV doesn't have composite video inputs, you will need the appropriate converter depending on the TV. Most likely you would need a composite video to RF converter (an RF modulator) like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/rfmodulator.html . (Most TVs with component video and HDMI ports will also have composite video jacks.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(If you have enough devices that you need a switch, you can find them in stores like Radio Shack. If you want to convert to component video, those converters also exist. However, each converter will degrade the signal a bit.)

Hdmi cable connection


Your model has a DVI input which is at the top of component 1 section on the rear panel which is for HD input or you can use the RCA plug ins for HD inputs on the component 1 section as well. Either will allo HD to be hooked to your set.

How can i watch movies from computer to my tv


You probably need to get a composite video output card for your computer. Actually, I've seen many cards that have both a composite video output AND a DVI output port on 1 card. The DVI output will give you a noticeably sharper picture than composite video, but you need to check if your TV has a DVI or HDMI input. (If it was manufactured after 2000, it probably does.) If you TV was manufactured after 2006, it probably has 1 or more HDMI inputs instead of DVI. You can buy a DVI to HDMI converter cable. That takes care of the picture; to get sound to the TV, you will need to connect separate sound cables to your TV. Your computer needs to have a line-level output jack on it's sound card, and you will need to get an adapter cable (from Radio Shack) to convert the stereo mini-plug to 2 RCA type plugs to plug into your TV. And that should do it!

Only Black and White picture is displayed when devices are connected via RCA cables. The picture colors are fine via the Comcast cable connection. What could be the problem and How can it be fixed?


there should be other inputs like S-Video or HDMI. To convert the signal-go to E-BAY and type in "RCA to HDMI"(for example). Got my converter cable there for $5.00 while RADIO SHACK wanted $30.00!

Hook it up with the component cable and then hold the power button on the console until something comes up on screen. Make sure you have selected the component input on your tv or else you wont get anything anyway.

What holding the power button does is it resets the video settings to the lowest common denominator and then you can reconfigure it for the optimal picture quality of the component cables.

If that doesn't work double check the component connections on the back of the TV and just make sure they are where they should be and that no accidents were made while hooking it up.

Please post the results from these steps here so that I know what happened.
