Make sure you change the input to 6, and that you have a good HDMI cable.

I used to connect my tv with my laptop using an HDMI cable, and all of a sudden, it just does not work anymore. What can I do?


Hi Cyril Lott,

There is a possibility that the HDMI cable might have failed so try connecting another known good HDMI cable and check if that helps.

Thanks and Regards.

How do I set my hdmi to pick of signal of my ps3


HDMI are initials that are referencing either a cable, a switch box, a device, and your television set/monitor.

your device, such as your PS3, has a HDMI receptacle. Your television or monitor if HDMI ready, also has a matching receptacle. An HDMI cable has the same plug ends on either side. They will then plug-in to your device on one end of the cable and to your television on the other end of the cable. The HDMI receptacle on your television, is labeled either 1- 2 - 3 maybe even 4?
you will then get the remote for the TV, and press input, and then you choose the labeled receptacle that your device is plugged into, in your case the PS3, let's say you plug it into HDMI number 1, when you press the input on your remote, you'll scroll to HDMI number 1, and your PS3 will now magically appear on your TV.

No signal from HDMI mode when I switch on the TV


HDMI is an input to the TV not an output. You select the appropriate input e.g hdmi 1, hdmi 2 on the remote. There can be a return signal the other way but the cable has to support that. Try a different hdmi cable.

      Check the back of your Sharp TV for the HDMI input. These will be long, thin rectangular jacks labeled "HDMI." Most Sharp TVs will include another label on those jacks with an input number ("Input 5," "Input 6" or the like). Remember that number. It will have a bearing when you turn on the TV.

    • 2
      Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the input jack on the Sharp TV and the other end to a compatible component such as an HD DVR from your cable/satellite company or a Blu-Ray disc player. The TV won't broadcast in HD if you can't connect these devices with an HDMI cable (though it will still broadcast in standard definition using RCA cables or S-video cables).

      Turn on the TV and the requisite component (Blu-Ray, DVR).

    • 4
      Press the "Input" button on your remote. A list of signal sources will appear on your screen ("Input 1," Input 2," etc.). Use the cursor to maneuver down to the input number corresponding to the HDMI outlet you just hooked up and press the "Input" button again.

    • 5
      Press the "Menu" button and maneuver the cursor to select "Option." Go to "HDMI Setup" and press "Enter." Move the cursor up or down to the desired item and hit "Enter" again. Then move the cursor from side-to-side to select the proper setting. Hit "Enable" to allow the Sharp TV to automatically recognize the HDMI signal and "Digital" to get the proper audio signal from the HDMI cable. Then hit "Enter" again.

      Exit the menu and watch TV as normal.

Can someone please help me get my laptop working through HDMI cable onto TV on a sony VAIO VGN-FW23G. I need to know the process to do this


1. Check the computer for changing output (some computers use <F5>, <F8>, depending on which brand they are. I believe Sony uses <Function><F7> or <F7>).
2. Check what channel the HDMI port is on (e.g. AV1, HDMI1, HDMI2, etc.) - you need to know this if your TV doesn't automatically switch to the new input.
3. Plug the HDMI cable into the TV HDMI cable-in port.
4. Plug the HDMI cable into the laptop HDMI cable-out port.

5. Turn on the computer.
6. Press the <Function><F7> simultaneously ONCE. The screen should flicker and show up on TV.
7. Sometimes you may have to go to "Display Preferences" and select Dual Monitors or external monitor if your computer doesn't do it automatically. Repeat Step 6 after.

** You may have to adjust Display Resolution to 1024 x 768 or lower in order for the TV to work. After it works at a lower display (800 x 600, for example), you can adjust the resolution to the maximum the TV can accept.

Hdmi input not working


Did you switch the inputs to match the input you were on? The HDMI ports will be labeled 1,2,3 or something like that. With the remote select the input that you would like and that you are plugged into. That should fix the problem.

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 have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

I have only the cable and hdmi hook into my panasonic 42 plasma and i dont get anything that is hdmi is there other cables i need?


Using your input key on the remote should switch you to the other modes. If you cannot access any HDMI or other input labels, go to your menu, and into the Input Labeling menu (under settings) and make sure you have all the inputs you require enabled. Its possible you (or an out of the box error) put these other inputs offline, which is why you aren't able to access your media from HDMI. If all inputs are enabled, and labeled, double check all the HDMI inputs on the unit. Plug what you are using with HDMI into each port, having the power on and sending information to the television. In some rare cases, I've seen that it doesn't allow access to the HDMI without it providing some source information.


Hope that helps.
