SOURCE: I have a Phillips HDTV model #42PF7421D/37. When

Try another hdmi wire. Physically look at the hdmi port and see if there is damage done to the port. Change the source. IE another cable box, xbox 360 dvd play etc. If all else fails, change SSB or Scaler. Depending on the set. It'll be one or the other. I don't have my information with me at the moment to distinguish which one you'll have.

New 50" hisense tv .. unable to use hdmi for cable box .. tried different cables and all 3 hdmi outlets on tv ????


There might be a setting on your cable box for audio output. Use the cable remote and look in the audio section of the settings menu and select HDMI output. Mine is under Audio Digital Output in the Audio/Video menu.

I have an e470vl vizio hdtv. i was plugging another component into the wall when the whole outlet sparked (biggest i have ever seen/felt). the tv and dvd player were connected to a power strip to that...


first of all just switch off everything then switch off the mains, open the mains socket as there might have been a loose connection to the terminals which you`ve got to tighten. also confifrm that the earthing is well connected before you switch on .
swtch on the mains then switch on your devices one by one, also confirm that the VGA cable is well connected to the display unit

I want to hook up a blue ray dvd player they told me to m=buy HDMI cable and this only goes to the tv, but doesn't have to go hooked up through the cable box


If you want to connect your blu-ray player to your tv, use the HDMI cable.
If you want to connect your cable box to your tv, I'd use component cables or get another HDMI cable.
You're right, you don't have to use your cable box to use your blu-ray player.

Could you please tell me if my LC-32GA5E tv can work with sky HD.The manual tells about switching to hd mode,but there seems to be no where to connect hd to the set.The tv is about 5 years old. thanks...


This is an HD ready TV and can definitely be used with Sky HD, but ONLY if the Sky box is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. It will not work if connected with a scart cable.

So you need 2 things. Firstly, you need to buy an HDMI cable (see picture) if you haven't already got one. Secondly you need to locate the HDMI sockets on your TV and Sky box. The sockets will have the HDMI logo (see picture) next to them.

Please rate my solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.330cd4e.jpg

I have a 19" phillips lcd tv and when i turn the tv on the phillips screen comes up but when it is going the show the channel it shut off by itself how can i fix this problem?


Hello. I may be able to assist you. If you are using a direct cable connection from the wall outlet;
  • Check the incoming cable or antenna signal connection to ensure that it is properly secured to the TV's antenna input.
  • If the connection is good, perform the automatic installation again to search for all available channels.
If you are using a coaxial connection from the Cable or Satellite box to the TV;
  • Set the TV to the channel specified by the service provider.
  • Change the channels at the Cable or Satellite box to view the program.
If you are using a video connection (CVBS, S-Video, YPbPr, HDMI) from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  • You do not need to perform automatic installation to search for the channels.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button on the remote control repeatedly to select the correct input source.
If you are using an HDMI connection from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  1. Reset the TV and source by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  2. Turn on the TV and press the play button on your source device. If the source is HDMI CEC compliant, the TV will automatically switch to the HDMI input.
  3. If your source is not HDMI CEC compliant, turn on the TV and switch to the HDMI input.
  4. Turn on your source.
If you are sure you have selected the correct input or channel but still have no picture or sound;
  • Try resetting the TV by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button to select the correct input source.
  • Check the connection cables.
  • Try the connected source with another TV.
  • Connect a different source on the same connection of your TV.

Connecting to HD TV


This TV has no HDMI input socket. It Has a DVI input socket. Therefore you will require an HDMI to DVI converter adapter or an HDMI to DVI cable. The DVI is video only so you will require audio cables from your Sky box (Audio L and R ) which will connect to the back left of your TV (Audio L/R sockets next to the s-video and component video connectors)

No play back from HDTV to threater system


Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.

I have a Pansonic TH-C42HD18 Plasma TV. It works fine when I play DVDs (through HDMI connection) and as well as you would expect watching VHS tapes through a composite connection. However, when watching...


You say you have switched AV cables. Have you tried switching input sockets as well? In other words, have you tried using the HDMI socket you normally use for DVD for the cable box input to watch TV? If so, does the problem stay with that input device or does the problem stay with the socket?
Also you say it doesn't matter "whether the cable is connected at all," but I'm not sure whether you mean the cable company cable or the (presumably) HDMI cable connecting the cable box to the TV. Can you clarify?

My HDMI set top box display reads "no input signal" but everything appears connected. I have no picture or sound. Cannot access any tv stations.


Make sure TV is set to HDMI channel.

Try a different HDMI port on back of TV.

Reset the cable/sat box and reset the TV by powering off both and unplugging them for the wall outlet for 30 seconds. Turn cable/sat box on first, and then TV after 30 secs.

If this fails, check the TV manufacturer's website to see if they have any software upgrades that will resolve the HDMI issue.
