    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?

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.

My proscan 32lb30q won't allow me to switch inputs to HDMI. It will only allow me to go between composite and tv channels. I'm trying to set up my laptop to connect. It's not a connection/cable problem,...


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.

Tv screen is white; sound is ok


Need more information about you problem. Does the white screen appear on all functions.Does any input signal like a dvd or vcr show picture. If so, then you have a problem with signal connection coming from the television signal source, like a cable or satellite box. You need to check the connecting cables to see if they are outputting signal. Try using different cables to connect the signal source to the television. If this does not work. Try hooking up the signal source to another television to make sure you are receiving signal from them.If all this seems to be working fine and you are sure that you are using the remote control inputs correctly, you may have a problem the video input signal board on the television. You can contact PROSCAN at this web address. www.oncorpus.com. Go to customer support and ask for their technical assistance with your problem. The telephone number for PROSCAN service is 1-888-977-6722. I hope this has been of help with your problem.

Cannot get a connection with HDMI input


When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.

None of the connections for my ps3 will work with my 32lb30q proscan 32 inch lcd flatscreen?


The product description says that your TV has 2 HDMI inputs. All you need is an HDMI cable to hook it up.
OR
It also says that it has the A/V inputs (red/white/yellow). Which you just plug in the cord that came with the PS3, each plug with the corresponding color. Good luck and thank you!
