SOURCE: HDMI ON ILO 32HD

I use a Toshiba DVD Player SD-6100 and had the same problem when using a HDMI cable. The ILO TV kept saying no signal. I don't know how to make the PS3 change into sending the HDMI signal, I'm sure though that is is similar as to the dvd player simply changing it in a menu. All I had to do was use a component cable to access the dvd player menu and from there changed the video out signal to hdmi, thus sending a signal to the frikkin tv. It all works now.
The Ps3 should have a similar menu to select video signal output. Try accessing it using a previously working cable, then once changed, switch on the tv back to hdmi input and see if it worked.
Hope this helps
Cheers

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: 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!

SOURCE: red tinge on tv screen when laptop plugged through HDMI

Neo2123 is correct.

The HDMI output is setup as a second disply, not Primary disply.
You will need to get into the video Driver settings and configure this for a single monitor.

1. Right click on the desktop
2. select "graphics properties"
3. set up the "Digital Display"

All the steps or naming may be different on you computer, but some of this is fiarly standard.

Roku stick dosent do anything. ...? Plugged into hdmi slot on tv and also plugged in power cord to roku and nothing pops up on my tv...? Iv tryed to reset but dose nothing. ... help???


Did you change the TV input setting on your TV to the correct HDMI input? Most Televisions will take a few seconds to scan the input before displaying any image. Most newer televisions have multiple HDMI inputs, and you might need to select each one, wait several seconds to see if there's a signal, and then move on to the next input, until you find which HDMI input has the Roku start screen signal.

Hello, the DVD play fine but tv mode, continually says no signal and screen is blue. Please help


You either have the DVD player plugged into the wrong input on the TV or the TV not set to that input. If using HDMI change the HDMI cord to another HDMI port on the the TV. In an Extreme case you have a bad connecting cord (either HDMI or other type.)

Connecting my new samsung blu-ray player (bd-fm57c) to my toshiba theaterview tv.


I don't think that cord will work. HDMI carries video and audio signals, you might get video but probably no sound. You might as well try anyway though so here goes... The red green and blue plugs are your video and the other red plug and the white plug is for stereo sound. The yellow plug is just a lower quality video plug. So plug in the red blue and green plugs into the component video inputs on the TV then the red and white plugs into the audio inputs. DON'T plug in the yellow plug. If this doesn't work go to your local home theater store and ask for a receiver or switcher that will downscale high def HDMI to component video and stereo audio. You can probably pick up a cheap one for around $100. Good luck!

You will need solid coax ends and connects. You need very high grade coax union and snap and seal coax BNC connectors for both ends.You also need a RFI filtered surge protector to filter all the AC plugs for the HDMI box. This shoulf fix your problem

Got a svga/hdmi cord and hooked up for my panasonic viera plasma to my computer but nothing shows on my component 2. also wondering if i'll need a cord for audio - i have double red/white/yellow...


You probably would need the extra audio cords seeings as normal svga connection won't suppost sound streaming. mixing and matching connections is always a pain to perfect.
If you are using the HDMI end on your plasma, then you will have the video show up on the HDMI channel. Then get an RCA red and white pair - 3.5mm jack and plug the jack into your PC's audio connection port and the RCA's into the Audio In ports in the back of the TV.
Once done the TV should display video and play sound from the PC. Failing this, try a few different configuration but always keep the audio plugged into the same Audio in port on the TV. Bacause then you at least know the channel that the audio works on ;D
Hope this helps mate, any more q's just ask!

Yesterday, i played my PS3 on a hd tv using the hdmi cord for the first time, then when switching back to a regular tv and using the red, white , and yellow rca cord, the ps menu didn't show?


There are a few ways to remedy this situation.

1) If you have access to that HDMI port on the TV, plug it back in and switch the settings back to composite. Your screen will go black which means you did it right.

2) I've only done this once and it was a trial-by-error step. Plug it into the tv, turn it on, hold your finger over the power button to turn it off. Hold your finger over the power button when turning it on. After a few cycles it worked for me. Key thing is to keep reseting it.

The safest thing to do is get the HDMI tv to switch your settings back

PS3 No signal to the TV


To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.
