    I am not sure. Is that a setting under Control Panel? If so, is it under Display? The laptop is a Gateway running Vista.

    DO you have your laptop internally set for HDMI out?

    No signal when all plugs are in. If I change out the tv to old one, there is a signal. All plugs are in correct inputs for both trials.

You MUST get HDMI Driver for your Video Card, it is NOT standard. You need to go to PC makers web site and download latest Video Divers for your PC, then you must set up Multiple Desktops, To do that you must first connect the TV, but leave OFF, connect up to PC, reboot, setup Video Card, turn ON TV, TV will have already been detected, On PC, Share the desktop, or Clone, whatever you wish, now reboot after saving settings. Now you set the TV for HDMI already and it should show you a desktop when chosen. You must select and setup TV, FIRST, then connect the PC. From then on, Turn the TV ON, then turn the PC ON, that way it will Always detect the HDMI port.

    Chris - I've been searching for my answer to this and I keep coming across your same message. I am able to hook up my laptop to another HDTV in my house with no problem. But I get "no signal" when I do this with HDMI between laptop and Proscan! What gives?

Here are a few ideas:

  • The No Signal, No Source or No Input message will appear on your television screen when the television is not receiving a signal from your Digital Box. This is often a result of either the Digital Box being powered off, not being properly connected to the TV, or if the TV is set to the wrong input.
  • Press the "TV/VCR" button on your remote control if you are experiencing no picture. This button will allow you to toggle between TV and VCR screens and may solve your display problem.
  • Make sure your cable box is turned on.

Proscan TV HDMI no signal


I presume the non HDMI inputs including component work---what are you feeding to the two inputs in question?

Game unit?
Output from a Computer?
Output from a HD cable box?

First thing I would do is go into menu and make sure those inputs are not "grayed out" means locked out.

Second thing I would do is if from only one kind of unit you are trying each input (understand I have seen this before) to disconnect power from set and from whatever is providing the signal.

Sometimes a glitch can occur and if someone tries to connect things with either or both units powered this can be the result--HDMI in some cases does not like that--and a set can sometimes detect nothing is connected and lock that input out if you do it with the units powered up.

The remaining possible answers are:

A bad board which has the HDMI connections on it (unlikely but possible)

The set (if it has it) needs a hard reset done to restore to factory settings.

The set may also have a software/firmware update available for this.

If its Proscan (Thompson--RCA/GE/PROSCAN) INFO or help from them is going to be nearly impossible to obtain.

WHAT TYPE OF CABLE DO I NEED TO CONNECT HP NC6400 LAPTOP TO HD TV TO WATCH MOVIE ON TV FROM LAPTOP? VGA TO HDMI CABLE? THANKS


Hi.

The best way is to get a s-video converter to connect your round s-video computer output to your HDMI port on your tv. This is the best you can do according to your laptop connections. You will need a s-video cable, HDMI upscale converter box and HDMI cable.

The other way is to plug a VGA cable to your tv VGA port if you have one.

VGA to HDMI is also possible with a converter. A standard VGA cable with a HDMI plug on the other side will not work because your computer sends out an analog video signal and HDMI is digital only.

Hope it helps!

First, verify that your computer is sourcing video through the HDMI port rather than looking for an input from it.

What happens if you try to select an HDMI input on the TV with no HDMI cable connected? It should select the port, then complain about "No signal." If you get that, turn off the TV and computer, connect the HDMI cable, turn on the TV first, then the computer.

There are certain HDMI input chips on the market that are very vulnerable to static electricity damage, and some cheap HDMI switches will conduct a static discharge from the switch mechanism to the HDMI lines (a friend blew two chips that way, then he realized both times the input went out when he used the switch). Use a direct cable connection if possible, and avoid putting a fingertip into the free end of an HDMI cable when the other end is the only one connected. Symptoms of static electricity damage may include "no signal" when an active signal source is connected, or some sort of data format error message. I don't know if your TV is programmed to lock out bad ports; I would think there would be some sort of fault indication to go with the lockout.

Connecting Bravia to PC using HDMI cable


You did okay but the phono sockets are not for Computer/TV use. Phono sockets should be checked int the manual on why they're there. If you have connected the Bravia to your computer, using the appropriate cable, then you should also purchase or request from the retailer where you purchased the TV a cable that has stereo phono plugs and, you didn't say what size phono sockets they are but I presume they are 3.5 mm. So, if the TV has 3.5 mm sockets, you purchase a cable with stereo 3.5 mm plugs. This is adequate for the stereo wav sound coming from the computer and going into the TV. Remember, having 2 Phono inputs on the TV doesn't mean anything. The TV could have a number of video inputs too, ATD AVT, AV, COMPONENT1, COMPONENT2, HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3, etc. each have it's respective sound inputs for AV, S-VIDEO, DVD, Blue-Ray, etc. But for the computer there may be a different type of socket for it's sound inputs, normally it is the old phono sockets. Seek help from the retailer or else you could cook the circuitry of the TV's sound system.
