There is sound but there's no video output. I've tried it on 2 different tvs with 2 different setups. I've used an HDMI cable as well as RCA plugs. Is the player kaput?

Sounds like it's time to get a new one. Used to be worth fixing these, but as cheap as they are these days, the labor and parts to fix it will cost you more than buying a new one! Sorry!

You didn't mention whether you switched inputs on your TV for the different devices. Fix could be that simple.

How to plug the blu-ray into the tv


It depends on the TV inputs. You will need to provide your own cables for most connections. If your TV has an HDMI in, get an HDMI M/M cable of an appropriate length. (Use an online shop for better prices.) This will provide the best picture. (If you have a sound system with HDMI ports, you may be able to go EDBC011 HDMI out to the sound systems HDMI in. Then the sound system HDMI out to the TV HDMI in.) If the TV has a DVI port, get an HDMI to DVI cable (again M/M). For this option, you will also need to connect the audio cable (see below in the composite or component video section).

Alternatively, this Blu-ray player has component and composite video out ports. Note: composite video is limited to SD. For these, you will have to connect the audio cables (RCA l/r audio or digital audio out). The composite video cable is included with the blu-ray player when new. For these, match the colors of the jacks to the wires to make sure that you have them correctly connected. You can put the audio cables to your sound system or your TV, as appropriate for your setup. For some TVs, you may need a RCA audio to 3.5 mm cable (all male ends) or adapter (for example RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M with an RCA audio cable or 3.5 mm F to RCA M/M with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) . This applies for units with only the PC audio in.

Make the connections with the TV and the video player off (turn off the audio system if you are including that set of wiring). Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input (use the Input/Source button on your remote or TV). Turn on the audio system (if using one) and blu-ray player.

If you have problems, first try different cables. Try other input connections and try different devices. It's possible for either the TV or the blu-ray player input/output jacks or boards were damaged.

The manual for the EDBC011 is available here: http://www.elementelectronics.com/support_docs/edbco11/edbco11_manual.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I tried hooking up my laptop to my 37lh20 tv. I connected the avi to the pc input and an audio cable fro the headset jack on the tv. If I put the tv input on rgb pc I get the picture but no sound and if...


Unless you hook HDMI to HDMI, you won't carry sound across the HDMI cable. If you're using a VGA to HDMI converter, you'll get the picture but no sound.

I have a feeling the headset jack on the TV is an output rather than an input. Most TVs accept HDMI, RCA, or a digital audio input (either coaxial or optical). Unless you have a S/PDIF optical output from your laptop (and you obviously don't have an HDMI output), then your only other choice is likely to get a cable that splits a 1/8" headset type connector into two RCA plugs that you'll plug into an AUDIO IN input on your TV.

I want to connect my philips home theater to samsung tv so how do i connect plz guide i hv three colour ep pin


Hi, to hook up a Tv to an home theater they are all the same process.

Instruction:

Make sure your playback devices are properly connected to your receiver. Whatever playback devices you use, make sure they are plugged into the appropriate inputs on your receiver. DVD and Blu-ray players, satellite boxes and cable boxes should all be plugged into video inputs, and CD players should be plugged into audio inputs. Your receiver will have labels on the back panel indicating into which input you should plug your devices.


Connect the video out to your TV's video input. Make sure you use the correct cable to make the connection. For newer receivers, the connection will likely be either HDMI or component. If your receiver has an HDMI output, use an HDMI cable to connect the receiver to the HDMI input on your TV. If your receiver uses a component output, use a component cable to connect your receiver to the component input on your TV.


Connect the audio output of your TV to one of the audio inputs on your receiver if you want to output your television's audio through your home theatre system. Most recent TVs will either use an optical cable or a digital coaxial cable to connect to the receiver, allowing you 5.1 channel surround from your television. If you have an older set, you will likely have to use standard RCA cables.


Turn on your receiver and press the "Setup/Menu" button on your receiver's remote. When "Input" appears on the display, press the right arrow key on your remote to select TV from the list.


After selecting TV, press the up or down arrow keys on your remote to select the audio input jack into which you have plugged your TV's audio cable. Press the "Exit" button on your remote to exit the setup menu and lock in the settings.


Tips & Warnings

Make sure you plug everything into the correct jacks or you will spend unnecessary time trying to troubleshoot why you don't have picture or sound.

PS3 No signal to the TV


To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.

You have almost answered your own question.
The HDMI does not output sound so use it for the video only and run another cable for audio,
be it RCA or Digital Coax.
