Question about Emerson LC320EM8 32 in. LCD TV

Open Question

I have a VGA to HDMI converter to connect my laptop to my TV. It does not work properly on my Emerson TV, but it works on my small Phillips TV (which is a bit newer). I have adjusted the output resolution of my computer, but images only show up when I have it on 1280x720. Even then, the image is out of place. I have contacted the company that sent me the converter, and they even replaced the one I received, but the new one is giving me the same problem. I have concluded that the problem is the TV. Is there any solution to fix this problem on my Emerson lc320em0 TV?

SOURCE: Emerson TVwill not work with Comcast remote. even with codes.

There is no such company as Emerson anymore. It's just an old fashion name stuck a set form China, but anyway, try Polaroid, Visio, Daewoo.

SOURCE: HDMI, and VGA on HP Pavilion dv6 1359wm, S-Video

you need something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/VGA-to-S-Video-RCA-Adaptor/dp/B000P3UB24 - but you may also need to see if the VGA display adapter supports the output, sometimes this also needs to be enabled to get it to work - other times it works just by using the VGA output switch - which will be one of the F keys look for a symbol of a screen and then use that F key and the FN key together to toggle the output from <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA only>not necessarily in that order. The HDMI is a digital signal out and to convert to analogue for the TV will need an expensive convertor

SOURCE: ps3 hdmi is saying format not supported on my 32"

hi
there maybe some problem with ur tvs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its hdmi. may be your tv is not supporting that resolution. connect ps3's component video out to ur tv and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution ur tv will not support. ur tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's hdmi out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
connect ur ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ur ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to ur tv via hdmi. surly u will get the video.
ok

SOURCE: my emerson tv just stop working it won't even turn

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Toshiba large screen - connected to my laptop with an Auvio USB to HDMI adapter.


First confirm that you do not have a VGA connection for a PC in the back of your TV. Many PC's connect directly into the TV's with VGA connection provided. If only HDMI then a converter can be a reliable alternative.

A VGA to HDMI converter may be a better solution. This particular device identified in the link has the power from the USB of the laptop to operate, the sound from the audio out of the laptop, and assuming you have a VGA out for a monitor the connection to the converter will give you choice of resolution.

There are many different units available and the one in the ink is just an example.
Hope this helps?

Your TV doesn't have video output on either HDMI or Composite video. (There are a few TVs that do have a video out but often that is only available for some input/output combinations. You would need to check the manual but the PC input is usually not available for the video output.)

You could get a VGA to composite or component video converter and direct the signal to your new TV from your PC. One example of the first converter is here: http://www.cablestogo.com/product/29548 . An example of the VGA to component video is here: https://sewelldirect.com/audio-authority-vga-to-component-pc-to-hdtv-converter.asp . There are other models available. A few VGA to HDMI converters also exist. However, since those need to convert an analog output to digital, they are more expensive.

I hope this helps.

(A few VGA to composite cables exist. They will not work for your purpose. They are designed to connect projectors with RCA ports and understand the VGA RGB signal to a computer.)

Unable to Connect Laptop to Samsung LED TV


VGA is analog - HDMI is digital
if u have a cable w/o a converter it won't work unless your video card supports digital signal output through VGA port function. Please consult with your laptop's user manual for more information.

Video Not Supported


You would be better trying to connect from the laptop VGA to the TV Scart. But you will still need to set your laptop up to output a screen resolution that the TV can display.

Connecting laptop VGA port to HDMI port on a TV
VGA to HDMI converter is required to connect a laptop to a TV with HDMI input. The VGA signal does not have an audio component. You need to connect an audio cable from the audio/headphone port on your laptop to the audio connector on your TV. There are HDMI converters with Audio input so you do not need to connect an audio cable to the TV. The audio is connected to the HDMI converter and then passes the audio with the video data to the HDMI cable to HDMI port on the TV. Check out these WEB site for these HDMI converters. http://www.aten.com/products/productItem.php?model_no=vc180 http://www.sybausa.com/productInfo.php?iid=1174 http://www.topbuy.com.au/tbcart/pc/Audio-VGA-to-HDMI-Video-Converter-Box-HD-HDTV1080P-p164633.htm

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!
