Re: HDMI-No signal input

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.

TV Says 'NO SIGNAL' but plays CD via player ok. What are the possible causes of a NO SIGNAL on a black background?

No signal means that some external source (aerial, HDMI input, AV input) isn't providing a signal.

Your TV plays a CD okay because that is built-in.

Try connecting an aerial feed and tuning the TV.

Incompatible video signal has received check output device settings

My guess would be that your PS3 has somehow switched the output settings. You can reset the settings by pressing and holding down the power button till it starts blinking. Try connecting it with your RCA cables to a TV and if that works try going into your settings and setting the PS3 back to HDMI.

LD4088 LCD will not play sound via HDMI cables. Component cables are fine. Hear a faint "click" from speaker when switching to HDMI input. Have tried all three HDMI connectors and have tried...

This is how AUDIO works in HDMI setup, you can select the source to send the digital audio along with the digital video through HDMI, the receiving end HDMI sound setup must be set to receive the digital audio through HDMI. Otherwise the audio may be sent and received through analog audio ports (Red (Right channel) and White (Left channel) RCA jacks) in stead. Most of the new TV and DVD player use auto detection.
So please check the HDMI audio setup to see how the audio signals are set to be processed.

Please leave rating if it helps.

Trouble trying to connect my dvd player and set it up to my new 42 " L cd lost instructions!

Hi there,
You will need to determine if your DVD player is HDMI or Scart. If you connect it via a scart lead, then it should automatically turn on when you power it up, if not it will be located on your tv under the appropriate source/input label, ie AV1/AV2, or SCART.
If you are using a HDMI lead, then you will have to turn it over yourself, as HDMI does not support switching control. To do this, locate the input button on your remote (sometimes labled source) and press it until you can select the correct HDMI input using either the directional buttons, or by repeatedly pressing the input button.
Hope this helps

When I attach something to my television using the HDMI input nothing gets displayed. The TV detects the input and asks if I would like to switch to HDMI 1 for example. Once the input is switched, all...

That problem may depend then on the HDMI compliant device that you have connected to the TV and/or the integrity of the connection. First verify that the connection is secure from coming loose and that both ends are seated properly. Then power on the TV, then power on the HDMI device.
If you still have no signal the next step then would be to confirm that you have the proper output resolution set on the TV, AND on the HDMI device. Confirm first that HDMI on the device is enabled. Then, if possible, set the TV resolution to 480P and the device to 480P as well. Go through all of the output resolution selections on the device until the TV shows picture. If you continue to have trouble, repost on here ALL of your devices you are using and how it is connected.

Panasonic th-42px60u plasma tv not turning on

Power LED on front panel blinks several times, there is a delay, then repeats. After fiddling and fuming (mostly fuming) I found that changing the input signal source allowed the TV to be turned on. When I changed the input signal source back everything was ok.

In other words...

My TV is connected to my PC's video card via an HDMI connector. My card has 2 HDMI connectors. I moved the connector (the part that comes from my computer) from one HDMI out to the other. The screen powered up. When I changed the connector back to the original HDMI out I got my display back.

So yeah, try changing your input signal source. If you're using cable try switching to your Xbox/PS3/whatever, or vice versa. If you only have one possible signal source then I have no clue.

It's almost like the TV doesn't get any signal from the current cable then goes into sleep mode until it gets another signal. My problem had to do with me changing a bunch of sleep/timeout/screensaver settings on my TV/comp.

Hope this helps someone.

Input 5 not playing audio via HDMI or stereo

HDMI can be problematic. Follow these steps in order for the best success with HDMI.

1) With all devices off, turn the TV/monitor on first and wait for it to come on.

2) Select the HDMI input.

3) Turn on the next HDMI device (stereo amp if it comes before the video device, or the video device itself and let it come on.

4) Play the video.

Some video devices may need the audio output to be set to PCM or 48k/96k datastream to work correctly.

If this doesn't help, you may have a compatibility issue with your HDMI device. Usually it is the fault of the player/video receiver and rarely the display/TV. All the TV/monitor does is query the source device as to what type it is and the resolutions it's supports.

Trying to connect playstation 3 to my tv having no success

For real try this:
Turn off the tv as well as the ps3 (to where the red ps3 light is on); Then just hold down the power button in the front for like 15 seconds or so, at least until you hear a beep. Then turn the Tv back on, and hopefully once you get the tv back on the correct hdmi input, you'll see that little message offering you to switch to optimum settings.
Hope it works. Did for me.
