What you are seeing is most likely not an HDMI port, but the "knockout" for one in your PC case. PC cases are made from templates. These templates are used for many different type of PCs. This does not mean that your PC came with an HDMI port.

Just bought a 55" Lg Led tv and i hook up hdmi from cable box to tv hdmi 1 and hdmi from my blue ray player to the tv hdmi 2, ok then i turn the input on both now hdmi 2 work but hdmi 1 has no signal why...


try connecting your blue ray player to HDMI 1.
A) If it works there, then you know the port on the TV is OK & the problem is with either your HDMI cable or your cable box.
B)If it still doesn't work then you may have a problem with the port on your MAIN PCB. if it's a new TV your warranty will cover that as long as the input connector is not physically broken.

Adding HDMI port to laptop


If your model has the motherboard components to support a HDMI port, you could get a socket soldered by a laptop specialist, but I doubt it has. Perhaps cheaper and easier to buy a VGA to HDMI converter from Maplin

How to hook up DVD player to 19' led HDTV


The modern way is to buy a HDMI Cable
Plug it in to the HDMI Port on back of DVD Player
Plug the other end into spare HDMI Port on LED TV.
Put in a DVD & hit Play
Use remote control to select HDMI port on LED TV
If it does not have a HDMI port then you need a converter box which picks up the Red & White (sound) & Yellow (viideo) and converts to HDMI standard.

I own a Toshiba Satellite C855D and my HDMI port has a plate cover. How do i get it off?


Are you sure you actually have a HDMI port ad not just the area that makes HDMI optional when ordering or for after the fact installation of a new video card?

I recently found out my toshiba laptops hdmi port has a plastic cover bcuz this model doesnt come equipped with it yet there is a spot that says hdmi and has a small plastic cover. if i remove this cover...


no. Plastic covers are made in common for the same series. If that part is covered with plastic, that means no HDMI connection. A motherboard service technician can sortout it for you.

Cant get our HDMI to work on our JVC HD 58S998.


First, contrary to popular opinion, HDMI cables connect to a tv are not the best way to connect the two. The HDMI technology has flaws that often shows up as sound problems.

If your TV has the capability for component connections, use them. It will take 5 cables, 3 for video and 2 for audio. You will get superior sound and video. The 5 cables terminate in RCA type connectors and are much cheaper than an HDMI cable.

I hope this helps and solves your problem. :-)

I cannot get the Input 3 HDMI port to work. The Input 3 Componet videoworks, but when I unplug the componet video and put in HDMI port nothing works. I do have something else in the HDMI Input 1 port...


Hi.

To start ensure that each time you connect or disconnect the HDMI ports both TV and connected device are off.

Also ensure that HDMI input is active, as detailed here.

HDMI connectors carry voltage, and connecting the HDMI cable while TV or device is on may easily damage the HDMI port, making it unusable.

The HDMI 3 and Component 3 are separate input. The component input may work, and HDMI port may still be defective.

To test the port do the following:

Disconnect TV power cord, and connected device (eg. Receiver, DVD etc.).
Leave units disconnected for five minutes.

While power is disconnected, test connecting on port three a device that was previously working on HDMI 1. Also use a cable that you know is working.

Connect back power with HDMI cable already connected. If HDMI 3 is still not detected, then the port is defective.

In that case ring Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual.This model is often advertised as only two HDMI inputs. Call Pioneer to ensure the third port can be enabled.
