HDMI-No signal input

37PFL7662D/05
we've been playing DVDs through a laptop via HDMI successfully until the laptop power was switched off accidently while connected to the tv, now however when we try to play any DVD we get the 'no signal input' from the tv-help!

    all setting are correct, it just simply stopped working all of a sudden...same message 'no input signal' in both HDMI 1 and 2 slots. 
    it is recognised on the computer, it just wont visibly show on the TV!

Turning the power off shouldn't have caused the problem.

Make sure the TV is set to the correct HDMI (1 or 2) by pressing AV on the remote and moving up and down the list.

Check the laptop is set to output through the HDMI socket.

Right click on the desktop -----> properties ----> settings

Actual options depend on your graphics card.

We have purchased a Samsung 55" Smart TV. We have it set up and working with Foxtel connected via the supplied fittings. How do we connect the DVD player?


The usual way is to connect it via a HDMI cable, for which the TV should have 2 or 3 input ports. You then select this HDMI as input on the TV to see a DVD playing.

Get a "high speed" HDMI cable. Some will say there is no difference between any HDMI cables, but they did see fit to increase the bandwidth in these cables for Blu-Ray DVDs.

How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.


Instructions

things you'll need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).

Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.

Tips & Warnings

*

Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

How do I play DVD on the BlueRay player?


According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.

I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

MODEL NUMBER: VBR231

*Model Features:
* Full HD 1080p Video Playback
* Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi - 802.11n
* 7.1 Digital Audio Output
* Backwards Compatible (see below)

*Compatibility:
* Plays Blu-ray and DVDs, Audio CDs, MP3s and Jpegs
* Multi-Channel 7.1 Audio Output via HDMI
* Playback and Enjoy Media via back USB Input (JPEGs and MP3s)

*Outputs:
* HDMI 1.3
* Component Video (YCrCB)
* Composite Video
* Stereo Audio
* Coaxial Audio
* Optical Digital Audio

I hope that helps somewhat.

Hello. Do not use HDMI for this purpose, instead go to Walmart and get a usb cord that plugs into your tv. Then use the remote control for your TV to push input and locate your computer, usually at the bottom of the list. Regards, Joe
