Mitsubishi rear projection tv, model WS-48311 - Lost audio after moving tv and re-hooking up cables. How do I get it back?

It sounds like this TV is being used only for the PS3. We'll need to troubleshoot this through a process of elimination.

If you're using Component Input 1 and audio, try using Component Input 2 and audio instead. If this set of inputs provides working audio and video - you can stop. Or, try going back to Input 1 once more. If Input 1 now works - you may have simply made a better connection. If it doesn't - then there's probably an issue with input 1 on the TV.

If moving to Input 2 above still didn't solve the problem, you should try using a different set of audio cables between the HDFury and the TV. If it now works, the original audio cables are faulty.

You can check the HDfury setup on another HDTV with component inputs with it connected to an HDMI cable. if the HDFury wors, you know the device and all the cables work. If you do this test and it works with your PS3, then you know that the PS3 is providing good video and audio signals via HDMI. If the problem follows the PS3 - then it's the PS3 at fault. If everything works perfectly on the second TV, then there is some issue with the audio amplifier / inputs / speakers of the Mitsu TV. You could get a cheapo stereo amp and speakers - or a set of computer speakers for audio - it all depends on how much you want to spend for sound.

Good lcuk!

Sound problem

Check what type of cable is connecting your sat box to your TV

If it is via a red/green/blue cable, make sure you also have an additional red and white audio cable connected, and select YPbPr (or component audio) in your TV's menu

I have a Sony wega kdf60xs955 just replaced thermal fuse and it fixed my problem but now I don't have audio when I watch tv but I get audio when I watch a movie on my playstation3 can you help

Yes, likely either when you replaced the fuse a plug got pulled or check main menu in set to make sure speakers did not by accident get turned to OFF----if sound when something is connected to rear inputs set is ok--some audio setting on set or a sat or cable box is off.

Do i need hd cables for an hdtv?

If you want to watch some content in HD you will either need to connect your TV to the computer using a VGA or DVI cable, or connect using HDMI(picture + sound transfer) cable to the computer/DVD... You can connect your TV also using Cinch or Scart cables but you will not have HD resolution. Hope this helps!

I would like to connect my my hp laptop to my Sony Grand WEGA KDP-57WS550 57 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television to watch netflix

You need to connect your PC to either your TV or your receiver. Also, if you have XBox, you can watch Netflix through it (thought I'd suggest, just in case).

Take your PC (or take a photo of your available outputs from your PC) and a photo of your available inputs (on your TV or receiver) to Best Buy or similar computer store. They can help you learn which connections you need.

Most likely you'll need a DVI to HDMI cable for video, and maybe a separate audio cable from your headphone connection on your PC to your TV (or receiver). You'll only need a separate cable for audio if your HDMI input on your TV does not support audio.

I am going through this same problem with my TV connecting Apple TV. I am checking now whether my old rear projection tv's HDMI input supports audio (same as yours). I've connected Apple TV to my rear projection TV. I have video, but no sound. Either my TV doesn't support HDMI audio, or I need to change a setting on the TV to enable that sound to work. If the TV does not support HDMI audio, I will need to connect Apple TV directly to my receiver via a digital optical cable for sound.

Hope this helps.

When i turn it on it winds and turn off.

  1. Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  2. Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  3. Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  4. Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  5. Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  6. 6 Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  7. 7 Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  8. Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  9. Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television.

How to get laptop connected with vga connector to

Unplug the television. Connect the VGA compatible monitor cable from the laptop's VGA monitor Output to the VGA Input on the back panel of the television. You will need a splitter to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the VGA Audio Input on the television. Never mind if you have speakers connected to your computer.

Press the Device button on the remote control or on the television front panel to display the Device Selection Menu. Select the device you want to view, in this case VGA. The only compatible resolution is 640X480 at a sync rate of 60 Hz.

Do not leave stationary or letter-box images on-screen for extended period of time to avoid uneven picture tube aging.

Right speaker doesn't work

Does this happen when watching TV or DVD?
Is your TV connected to a cable box?
Are using AV 1,2 or which source?
Make sure audio cables are inserted all the way.
Audio balance on TV has to be in the middle for both speakers to work.

No sound

More than likely you need to go into your menu settings. Check to ensure that your TV speakers are enabled. The previous owners may had it hooked to theater system

Watch Computer on Mitshubishi WS-55819. Help me please.

Look on the back of the set and see if you have a VGA connection available. On many of the HD series they do. If id does it should also have a audio in via rca jacks or a 3.5mm stereo jack. If the set does not have a VGA input on it , look on the Laptop and see if it does have S-Video out. If it does, you can probably use it in the S-Video in on the TV and run the Audio out from the Laptop to the audio in of the S-Video Input you are using. I would use the VGA Jack if available. Be aware that if it does and you use it it will only work in low 800x600 at 60Hz.
Hope this helps,
