To fix it, just turn the set off, let it discharge for a few hours. Reach in and remove the socket from the back of the tube and reinsert a few times to break through the corrosion.
This is a sign of weakness in the manufacturer of the guns and the connecting sockets. The metal used in the pin connections inside the socket are corroding and when you remove the socket and reinsert it cuts through the corrosion and makes good
contact again.

If still not working contact the support for your television..

Hope that helps......

Have you cycled thru the inputs on the TV? Should display under the DVI input setting. Use input/source button on your remote to cycle thru inputs.

Hope this helps

    You may also have to go into your display properties in the control panel to turn on the output of the laptop.

    Please specify your version of windows and I can walk you thru the process of confirming that output is turned on.

I have a 51UWX20B TV. I want to get a Blu-Ray DVD


Yes there are a few options for you to make the link between your TV and the BluRay DVD player, first there are adapter cables made with HDMI plug on one end and DVI plug on the other end, remember that with this cable you will have to link the audio signal with another cable because DVI only passes video. Second if you cannot find the adapter cable in your area you also can use the component video(red,blue,green)instead of the other adapter cable,that is if your TV has component video ports, and again audio will have to be linked with another cable because component video only passes video signal. Good luck !

DVI/HDMI Cable lost my pic and sound


Try disconnecting the hdmI cable and the dvr box.
Connect the cable directly to the cable input.
Sometimes the dvr boxes will cause this problem
after you connect the hdmi cable.
