Question about Mitsubishi WS-55805 55" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

HDTV connection on TV is not HDMI

The HDTV connection port on the Mitsubishi WS55805 is not the standard HDMI port. I am not sure of the type of port on the TV. Are there cables the have HDMI on one end and a configuration that will match with the Mitsubishi HDTV port?

The port is called a DVI input. You can find a HDMI to DVI adapter at Circuit City, Best Buy, Ultimate etc..........

How can you tell if the hdmi ports are bad on your tv ( a cable guy said there was bad)


Connect a good HDMI device to the HDMI port on your TV. Make sure the TV HDMI port is selected using your TV remote. Turn ON the HDMI device. If the port is working, the TV and HDMI device will establish a connection and the screen should show some kind of menu display for the device. Regards.

Tip

Connect you HDTV to your Mac.


One of the first things you may notice about your new big-screen HDTV is that it has more connections for video than your old TV ever dreamed about. It probably has two or three HDMI connections, maybe a DVI connector, a VGA connector, and at least one component video connection. And those are just the connections most commonly used for high definition.
It’s shame to let all those connections go to waste. Your Mac just happens to be sitting nearby; why not hook it up to your new HDTV? It's actually a pretty easy task. A few lucky souls won't even need an adapter; for the rest of us, at least one adapter will be necessary.
Pick the Right HDTV Port For best quality, your HDTV's HDMI or DVI ports are the preferred connection method. Both are capable of the same digital quality. The only practical differences are the style of the connector and the fact that HDMI supports video and audio in a single connection. If it has one, another option is to use your HDTV’s VGA port. The VGA connection isn't as good as the HDMI or DVI method, but as long as your TV supports full resolution via the VGA port, you'll be hard pressed to notice the difference. Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini Mac Pros, MacBook Pros, and Mac Minis have standard DVI connectors. Mac Minis and MacBook Pros have a single DVI port; Mac Pros have at least two DVI ports. If your HDTV has a free DVI port, then all you need is a standard DVD cable; no adapter is necessary. But in all likelihood, you'll need to connect your Mac to your HDTV using either an HDMI or VGA connection; both options require an adapter. If you choose VGA, you can use the adapter that came with your Mac. If you choose HDMI, you'll need a simple adapter, which is available from multiple sources. The adapter may be a cable with a DVI connector on one end and an HDMI connector on the other, or it may be a small adapter that has both types of connectors, but no cable. Either type will work fine. iMac, MacBook iMacs and MacBooks have a mini DVI connector for hooking up external monitors or TVs. You'll need at least one adapter, maybe even two. At a minimum, you'll need a mini DVI-to-DVI adapter. You may also need a DVI-to-HDMI or DVI-to-VGA adapter, depending on which port on the HDTV you choose for the connection. Make the Connection Once you determine which, if any, adapters you need, and have the necessary cable to reach from your Mac to the HDTV, turn off both the HDTV and the Mac. Connect the cable between the Mac and the HDTV. Turn the HDTV back on first. It doesn't need to be set to the connection the Mac is on, but it must be powered up first, so that when it boots, your Mac can recognize the TV and the resolution it needs. Once the HDTV is powered up, turn on the Mac. Your Mac should recognize the format and resolution of the TV, and automatically select the native resolution of the TV for running the video. In a few seconds, you should see the Mac desktop on the HDTV. Over or Underscan You may notice that the Mac's desktop appears to be slightly larger than the HDTV's screen (its edges are cut off); this is called overscan. Or, you may notice that the desktop doesn't occupy all of the HDTV's screen real estate (there are dark areas around the edges); this is called underscan. You can usually correct either issue by making adjustments on the HDTV. Check the HDTV's manual for information on making scan-related adjustments. They may be called overscan, underscan, dot-by-dot, or pixel-by-pixel. If your HDTV has a dot-by-dot or pixel-by-pixel capability, give this a try; it should eliminate any over or underscan issues. Some HDTVs only offer these special scan controls on specific inputs, so be sure to connect to the corresponding input on your HDTV. Time to Watch a Movie Once you have your Mac and HDTV working together, it's time to kick back and watch a video from your Mac. Be sure to check out the QuickTime HD trailers for a sense of what HD and your Mac is capable of. Enjoy!

I have plugged my HDMI plug into my WiiU and the back of the Mitsubishi HDTV. Where do I find the channel that shows the input of the HDMI?


input source has to be changed to hmdi1 rather than ATV or DTV .. No channel is involved. The remote control should have an input source button on it to select the type of input port the TV looks at.

I have a lead from my tv usb, to the samsung tablet, but i dont know how to get it to connect


Step 1 Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the Samsung Galaxy Tab HDTV adapter.
Step 2 Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to a free HDMI port on your television.
Step 3 Connect your Galaxy Tab's travel charger to the other end of the HDTV adapter. Plug the travel charger into a power source, such as an electrical outlet or a computer's USB port.
Step 4 Plug the HDTV adapter connector into the Galaxy Tab's "Power/Accessory Interface" port. The port is on the bottom of the device.
Step 5 Turn on the TV. If your TV has multiple HDMI ports, use the remote control to switch to the correct one. Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the remote to switch ports. When you're using the correct port, the TV will instantly display whatever is on the Tab's screen.

Cannot figure out how to connect my new sound bar to my older TV


If your TV has audio output connectors (RCA type), you can use them as a source of input to your soundbar. This should be apparent by reviewing the installation instructions that accompanied your soundbar.

How to connect hdmi from the cabel box to the tv


First things first. Does your cable box have a HDMI output on the rear? If so, mearly aquire a HDMI cable from one of your TV electronics retailers and connect it to one of the unused HDMI inputs on your HDTV. Use your TV remote to switch to that HDMI port and POOF.. there you go.

How could i connect this tv to laptop


Connect by this way:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You'll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC's are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won't find a VGA port on regular TV's though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with "digital" being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

2My Mitsubishi WD52725 displays a blue screen suggesting to check my inputs and says signal is invalid..checked all the connections and all is good there..any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Nick


What is your input source and which input cable type? If the source is a PC using a VGA cable, what resolution is the computer sending? 480x640. 800x600, 1024x768, 720x1280 (EIA standard) all at 60Hz are known to work but other modes might not.

If you are using a PC to the HDMI port, it will not work. The only HDMI ports that can connect to a computer will be listed as HDMI/DVI and this TV doesn't have that type of HDMI port.

If you are using any other input source, check try another source or channel. (One of my TVs intermittently finds a digital channel 25-9 and gives that message. We have no clue what station is being found but all the other channels are fine.)

I hope this helps.

4yr old Mitsubishi DL 52525, HDMI input vide problem


Are you sure its the TV and not the source? Are you sure its only the HDMI port on the TV? The only reason why you must HDMI is to get 1080p and your TV doesn't support 1080p. Its supports up to 1080i. Your TV has a native resolution of 720p which means it can accept a 720p image and not need to scale it, so the picture will look the best at 720p but will support 1080i. I would use component cables to connect your sources and set them to output 720p.
