No Signal HDMI

I have an Insginia 42" HDTV. I tried hooked up my Comcast box with HDMI cable. I went to select the correct imput on the tv and got No Signal floating around my screen. I know I hooked the cables correctly. There are only so many HDMI ports to pick from. What is this things major malfunction?

    I have just bought a Dell Ultrasharp 2709W 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor. It has has a HDMI input in addition to the main monitor interfaces. Now when i plug my playstation 3 into it (HDMI) it tells me that there's no signal in the port. I was wondering if anyone has any trouble shooting ideas before I call the store i bought it from or even Dell.

    THANKS!

I have the exact same setup and issue. (42in plasma & Comcast).
It worked just fine and then one day I had sound but no video feed. Tested the HDMI cable, and it wasn't the problem. Hooked the cable box up with component cables and it worked fine. Either the HDMI port from the TV went bad or the Comcast cable port went bad. How does one replace an hdmi port circuit board?

So, did you have to get the television replaced or the box?

Connecting Sony PS2 to Panasonic HT32LZD85


First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.

Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).

If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.

Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

No Non-Hd sound


I had the exact same problem on a brand new Insignia 26 " LCD with DVD. Comcast tech was able to fix it by changing the Comcast box diagnostics. Here is what he did. Using the Comcast remote with the TV on - press power, cable, menu in that order. A comcast diagnostic srceen will appear. Select Additional HDMI options, then audio options. Change the audio options to L-PCM. Press power again to exit the diagnostics. That will fix it and you get to use the HDMI cable.

Closed caption problem


I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

This is a common issue with HDMI. Try unplugging the TV for 2 monutes and also reset the cable box as well by inplugging.

LG LCD HDTV 'NO SIGNAL'


To fix the problem, try turning off the TV and unplugging it from the outlet. Once unplugged, push the power button and hold it down for 1 minute. Then turn the TV back on and rescan for channels.

If the problem persists, contact LG customer service immediately as there is a problem with the memory card. The device is unable to retain scanned channels for immediate feedback.

All LG LCD automatically comes with a 1 year manufacturing warranty. You would have to provide proof of purchase to show when it was purchased. Hope this helps. The Guru
