SOURCE: KDL-42V4100 bravia - no video

Hi,

There are a number reasons why this might happen:

  • The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  • The panel has died - Need a new panel
  • A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  • The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  • The driver board is faulty
Thanks

Hi,

Sounds like there is a short on the power board or the power board has gone faulty.

Look on the power board to see if any of the capacitors are bulged or if there are any other components burnt out. The TV is going into protect mode because of an over current, which points to a short on the board or a component has gone short circuit.
Thanks

SOURCE: Sony Bravia television hdmi stopped working

Installing a new software update will this issue. All you need is a compatible USB flash drive. Go to support on Sony.com. Look up your tv model and if there is an update, just follow the instructions to install it yourself. I have a KDL-46S5100 and this worked great. The download and instructions page I used was : http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=4769#install

SOURCE: hdmi port stopped working on sony bravia

I have a Sony Bravia model KDL-46s5100 that had the same problem. All HDMI ports stopped working. I don't know why this works but unplug the TV for about 30 sec, then plug it back in and hold down the power button on the tv for 10 seconds. Like I said I don't know why this works but it worked for me. Good luck.

I can not find an HDM1 port on my Sharp TV. Can I use the USB Port?


No, the HDMI plug will not fit into a USB port. (It's the wrong shape and the pins are different.) The micro-USB port can be connected to some USB ports for power, not data, with the appropriate cable (micro USB to type A). (Without the model of your Sharp TV, I do not know if the USB port has the right specifications. Some older TVs only have a "service port" which doesn't always provide enough power.)

There are HDMI to component video/audio converters that may work. They do not always work with copy protected (HDCP) content. See http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/770115-REG/KanexPro_HDRGBRL_HDMI_to_Component_Converter.html for one example. (Composite video is not recommended since that will downgrade the signal to 480i. Component video supports 1080p signals.)

If you have 1 HDMI port, then a multi-port HDMI switch may work. Note: automatic switches often do not switch on their own with some sources. If the source never actually turns off, like some set-top boxes, you'll need to switch the unit manually.

I hope this helps.

Acer lap top to Samsung plasma


Depends on what type of ports your HP has and what type of ports your Samsung TV has. The easiest connection is to try to connect using the ports that they both have. Otherwise, if they have different ports then you will need some type of converter that goes between the two of them to make them communicate.

Most computers have a VGA port, does the Samsung TV have a VGA Port? New computers have a HDMI port, does the Samsung TV have a HDMI Port? If so you the connections that are alike or you will need a converter.

Once you have them connected, you just have to select the Input on the TV. Most times if you use VGA then you select PC or Computer as the input. There should be an HDMI input selection if you use HDMI connections.

Reboot the computer and the display might appear on the tv. If not you will have to hit some keystrokes to toggle the display between the computer and the tv. Most times on the computer you will hit the FN function key and one of the F1 thru F12 keys that controls the display on an external. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct Function key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display.

What's your problem?can not hook up lap top to tv


Connecting your laptop to your TV will require a HDMI cable. Attach the cable to the HDMI ports on the latop and TV, then change the source input from your TV to HDMI and your TV will now display your laptop.

When I connect my laptop to my tv with an HDMI cable the video works but the sound comes out the laptops speakers. How do I get sound to the tv?


What operating system are you using? If you are using Windows 7, right click on the Volume icon on the system tray and select "Playback Devices". A window would pop up showing you speaker and HDMI. Select HDMI and then choose the "Set Default" Button on top of the OK button. Thats it! If you want the sound to come out of the laptop again when you disconnect the HDMI from your TV, you have to do this again, then choose the speakers.
Cheers!

How to huck up tv to desk top computer


Depending on the computer, you can use the VGA port or the HDMI1 port and the PC audio in (above the digital audio out) with the appropriate cables. The audio cable is a 3.5 mm audio patch cable. Use standard VGA or HDMI cables.

Then press the input button to select either the PC (VGA) or the HDMI1 port as needed.

Then make sure the computer is sending a signal to the desired port. (You may need to enable the port in the BIOS.) Make sure the monitor is on when you start the computer. With Windows, you can usually select the desired monitor by right clicking on the desktop and then choosing the display options. (for Win7, see Screen Resolution then detect the monitor.)

I hope this helps.
