Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Dvd connection we have our direct tv cables hooked up correctly we believe, because we get the signal just fine. When hooking up the A/V cables from the DVD player to the other ports available however, it doesnt pick up the signal after we change the Source on the TV. So basically, everytime we want to watch a dvd, I have to unhook the direct tv a/v cables and hook up the dvd av cables in the same ports. It works just fine then. But we would love to not have to go thru that process everytime.



Answers :

Check the connection wire for any internal conductor break. Check it with a multimeter.

No Signal Watched a DVD, when we switched back to watch TV there was no picture and it said no signal. I tried another TV to make sure the problem was not the antenea or the cable. All checked out fine. It did this once before and we found all the stations were one point off, for example 10.1 was now 10.2. We manually restored all stations and all has been well until now. I have tried many things and I can not get a picture back. In diagnostics it says my signal strength is zero. Thank you, Greg

I have a Hitachi 42PD7200 plasma tv. The hdmi port works with the new xbox 360, satellite tv and until recently my Samsung bluray player. When the bluray is connected (via a 4 port HDMI switcher of directly to the TV) it shows the bluray starting up with the Samsung logo and then gives the message invalid frequency. At this point the picture and normally sound are lost. I have connected the bluray to another TV using HDMI, the same cables and it works fine. Has anyone come across this problem

When this TV was made, hdmi outputs on laptops was not the norm - it was vga. Can this TV use an hdmi signal from a dell laptop? Yes, I'm using the correct input for the TV and have tried hdmi1 & 2 ports. - Thx


Make sure you have set the laptop's display properties to as low a resolution as possible (also make sure the screen refresh rate is 60 hertz) and turned it off before connecting it to the television. Turn the television on first and set to the corre ... RCA L26HD31 26 in. LCD HDTV

When i plugged my hdmi cable from my cable box to hdmi #4, it doesnt seem to receive any signal. the screen stays black. however, when i use the hdmi #3, it works perfectly fine. could it be that the port itself is defective? and if it is in deed a malfunction, what should i do next?


The fact that port 3 works where as port 4 does not implies that the HDMI port is defective. Samsung offers a 1 year / 12 month standard warranty, and some of higher model TV's have a 3yr / 36 month warr ... Samsung Flat Panel Televisions

Hi, my Phillips was hooked up and working fine directly to the DISH receiver using the HDMI 1. I moved and had to put the DISH receiver in another room and ran a coax cable to where the TV is now using the ANT in spot. I select TV as the source and choose channel 60 and no signal.

My Denon receiver, mounted in another room, has HDMI inputs from my DVD player and cable TV. Signal goes from receiver through HDMI into a signal transmitter and then to the TV via Cat 5 data cable and signal receiver. The signal frequently drops out, and especially if any light switches are turned on/off. Is it likely the problem is the result of an electrical wiring problem, or could it be a problem with the Denon receiver itself?


It would seem that the transmitter and/or the receiver may be causing all the fuss...or the cat 5 is having issues...the cat5 cable may have some defect...try using another cat 5(even if it's 6ft long,move receiver closer to tv/dvd and use transmitte ... Flat Panel Televisions
