Question about Proscan 32LB30QD 32 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

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, I just can't get the TV to switch input to anything other than those two. I tried a hard reset by unplugging the TV overnight, tried again this morning to see if anything had changed and it was the same problem. Any advice?

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.

SOURCE: No HDMI input socket on Toshiba 'HD Ready' TV

There is an easy way to adapt the cable.

Any good computer shop will have the adaptor.

Take the HDMI cable to them, and tell them you want an adaptor to go to composite signal.

(I know that they're made, many of the graphics cards I use to build computers come with that cable adaptor)

You also might try Best Buy or Radio Shack, but you might not have much luck with them.

SOURCE: "No Signal" Message when using HDMI Inputs on 26" Proscan LCD TV

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.

I have started setup for hd cable. Am connected to hdmi and have picture and sound but am unable to change channels. What do I need to do.


With the HDTV set for an HDMI Input that matches the HDMI Jack that you've connected to the cable HD STB (set-top-box or "converter"), use the cable STB remote to change channels on the STB - not the TV.

You can not change channels of the STB with your TV remote. You may however, be able to program your STB remote to operate your TV. Most will allow you to power the TV on / off; volume up / down / mute; change input (HDMI1 / HDMI2 / ANT / Composite / etc.) and even some of the more complex functions as well. Contact your cable company for more details.

How to tune in for blu ray dvd


You do not tune in your Bluray player but connect using an HDMI cable or Composite cable. If you have a HDMI cable connect the Bluray's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI in at the back and using the TV's remote switch the Input source to HDMI. You will see the image from the Bluray player in high definition.
If you don not have a HDMI cable connect the composite out of the Bluray player using the Yellow/Red/White cable to the TV's composite input ( same three color sockets ) and switch to AV input on the TV. Using this connection won't give you high definition image but will work OK.

How to conect a PROSCAN MODEL 32LB30Q to a curtis DVD1098B


Buy an HDMI cable, plug one end to the Curtis DVD1098B's HDMI Output, and the other end plug into the TV's HDMI IN 1, or 2.
Using the remote control, and the assistance of the manufacturer's manual change the tv's input to HDMI 1, or 2 respectively.
Verify the input, and output of each device if you do not want to use HDMI, then using the same process connect the output of the DVD to the respective Input of the TV, i'm unsure of the TV's input but the television appears to support Component, RCA, and Coaxial.

I have a proscan tv model #PS27108, I do not know how to hook up the dvd player in regards to the cords and what channel to put it on? I would appreciate any help with this! Thanks in advance?


The ProScan will accept input on input 90/91/92 using the connectors on the backside. You can use S-video[the little round black connector] or the composite video [yellow connector] for the video in and use the red / white pair for audio in.
90 selects S-video and audio 1 in
91 selects composite and audio 1 in
92 selects composite in 2 and audio 2 in
Connect these cords to the S-video or composite yellow output, and the Red-right White- left audio outputs on the DVD.
If you don't want to do this, get a RF modulator ~$15, and connect the yellow/red/white from the DVD output to the inputs on the modulator, and then connect the RF [cable] output of the modulator to the antenna input on the ProScan, and tune channel 3 or 4.

No sound when playing a dvd on a proscan lcd tv model 32LB30Q tv


Do you have a different audio source to test with (such as a tape player or vcr?) . That way you can verify if the DVD player is putting out audio versus whether the TV audio input is bad, or if the TV is configured to use HDMI for audio input.

Some TVs give you a setup menu option where the audio comes in through the HDMI port versus the (RCA) component ports. If yours is like that, then you should be able to switch that in the TV menu.

Proscan 32lb30Q. I need to hook up wireless


You can buy a digital to analogue converter that connects to your COAX digital output and then connects to you RCA jacks. They run around $75. The only problem I've encountered is the DVD does not work through the COAX output, just TV. I'm looking into it.

Cant get picture or sound...Proscan 27113


You can tune to 90 for input 1 S-video, 91 for input 1 composite and 92 for input 2 composite only.
Most RCA and GE brand replacement remotes will work using code 000, or 001. I use code 237 for my 5 in 1 remote and can get PIP and the setup displays to work.

PLEASE HELP ME CONNECT MY DVD PLAYER TO MY NEW PROSCAN 32LB30Q.


Use either another HDMI cable (available at your local electronics store) or a component video and left/right audio cable to connect the two pieces together. The connections on the back panel of both pieces should be color coded and clearly marked.

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!
