Question about Televison & Video
If you've made all the appropriate connections, there are a few things that you may wish to try to resolve the problem.
First, you'll want to make sure that your TV is set to the proper input station. Some models may require that the TV be set to an external input to display any kind of signal from an HDMI input source. Input stations can usually be selected by pressing the "Input" button on the TV's remote control, but may also only be available through the TV's main video menu, depending on our model.
Second, you may be encountering an HDMI "handshake" failure. Whenever two devices connected by HDMI cables fail to recognize each other (the handshake fails), users may not see any images displayed or encounter poor picture/sound quality. This type of issue can typically be resolved with newer electronic devices by unplugging each device and power cycling them (turn them off then on).
Third, you may want to try another HDMI cable to make the connection. Like all other electronic components, HDMI cables have the potential to be defective right out of the box, though such instances are generally few and far between.
Should none of these suggestions help, you may wish to refer to your TV's owner's manual for more information. Some older HDTV's may not support HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection), and as a result you might need to contact the manufacturer for alternative solutions.
Hope this helps you out.
