I have a dynex 32" lcd tv and a pavilion dv6 and cant view the laptop on the tv using hdmi cables

trying to view netfilx my computer has windows 7 when i plug in the hdmi cable in the computer screen goes black and there is no signal on tv

I'm having the exact same problem.  I have a Pavilion dv6 running Windows 7, and I have a Dynex TV I was planning to use as an external monitor.  The HDMI cable didn't work; as soon as I connected the computer to the TV using the cable, the computer screen went gray and no further commands would work.  TV said 'No signal'.  Did you ever resolve your problem?  Should I try a VGA cable?
Note that I connected the same tv to a different computer using the same HDMI cable and *SNAP* it came on instantly.

  • Hi, just need to know how to get my music, video, pictures and apps form my iPhone to my new laptop as the old computer, which I used before was stolen. I only have my phone left and if I try to conect it to my new laptop it's trying to delete everything.

    I have also noticed all my settings won't stay set, example....I removed the check mark from "third party cookies", the when I close Firefox and reopen the check mark is back, also my tool bar has screwed up....can't reset, been having trouble the up grade.

  • I have an Airport Extreme, 2 laptops with windows 7 and a wireless HP printer.  I can connect the laptops to the printer.  Any advise?

    The problem is not the router.. the issue is the vpn has put your computer in a different IP range with a different gateway. When you turn off the vpn the computer returns to local lan and can print.
    Some vpn software allows you to set gateway to use local net instead of remote gateway or access to other webistes or local lan.
    Read up the issue.

    I did not search much.. just grabbed the first article I could find that explains the issue.
    The whole point of the vpn is whilst it is connected your computer is NOT part of the Local Lan .. it is part of the Remote LAN via the vpn tunnel.
    It is also a security risk using split tunnelling so often it will not be allowed.
    Plug the printer directly into the computer via usb or whatever.. Local connection will work.. not local lan.

    I have just purchased my first iPod touch and I cannot transfer my music from my laptop. The sync button does not appear to work. What have I done wrong? I am a grandma trying to keep up with technology please help.

    Connect it to your computer and restore it as a new device. Then chose what music you want to sync with it and do so just like your Touch does.

  • I have a iPhone 4S and a Cannon Printer with AirPrint. I have the printer and the iPhone both on the same network, however I still can't locate the printer on the phone. Works just fine with the laptop on the same network. Any suggestions?

    ok no problem! all i did was 1) set up the mobile hotspot on my phone. 2)  turn it and wifi on on the phone. 3)  connect the laptop/desktop to the hotspot network. 4) insert setup disk for the printer and begin setup. 5) complete the setup "using a usb cord to temporarilly connect the computer and printer" 6) unplug usb cable and finish set up on the laptop/desktop. 7) give it a few minutes to show up on the AirPrint menu on the phone. 8) that should be it. I unplugged the printer and plugged it back in, made sure the laptop was totally turned off AND disconnected from the network, and did everything I could to try and make it not work. The printer I have is a Canon MG3122, it doesn't have a fancy screen or even a way to input a password or anything like that, so it just strores a default network that it will connect to. in order to change networks i would have to complete setup multiple times. Since I only plan to use it with AirPrint for my mobile business....the one network is just fine! Hope this helps!

  • I want to buy a new apple tv but it used hdmi cables and my house is only wired for analog.  Is there any way I can use the apple tv on analog cables?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    It's do-able, but I don't think it's a great idea.
    DVI
    Some users with DVI have managed to get their TV's to work with DVI-HDMI cables. DVI carries no audio, so alternative connections need to be explored to enable audio. DVI doesn't necessarily support HDCP as well as other standards used by HDMI (which may or may not be an issue)
    Analogue
    There are hardware converters that will convert HDMI to various other types of output, however there are some issues with doing so that you should be aware of.
    HDCP
    HDCP compliant converters will not allow you to watch HDCP protected content such as that from the iTunes Store. Non compliant converters exist but we cannot discuss them under the Terms of Use for these communities.
    Resolution and aspect ratio
    I'm not aware of any converters that will scale the output from the Apple TV, any TV or projector which is used will need to be widescreen and support resolutions of 720p (Apple TV 2), 720p/1080p (Apple TV 3)

  • My MacBook Pro is not able to detect Toshiba LCD TV using HDMI Cable

    Hello,
    I am recently having an issue of connecting my MacBook Pro with Toshiba LCD 32 Inch i tried many troubleshooting scenarios but nothing came up on my LCD,
    My Mac OS 10.6.6 with the latest updates from Apple, i tried to connect my Mac to Sony Pravia LCD Screen and it's work fine but not the case in TOSHIBA !,
    Please advise me if it's something related to my TV.
    Waiting reply from technical,

    Hello Dear,
    Thanks for response,
    I check the TV Manual and it's support the "Extended display identification data (EDID)" and i already connect my PS3 on the TV using HDMI Cable, but when i connect the MacBook Pro screen flashed and nothing came up on the TV and this why i am trying to understand is it Mac issue or TV one,
    Please review the following i copy it from the TV Manual and advise me,
    "Connecting an HDMI or a DVI device
    The HDMI input on your TV receives digital audio
    and uncompressed digital video from an HDMI
    device and uncompressed digital video from a
    DVI device.
    This input is designed to accept HDCP
    programme material in digital from CEA-861-D
    compliant consumer electronic devices (such as
    a set top box and DVD player with HDMI and DVI
    output).
    The HDMI input is designed for best performance
    with 1080i (50 Hz/60 Hz) and 1080p (24/50/60
    Hz) high-definition video signals, but will also
    accept and display 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, and
    720p (50Hz/60 Hz (60 Hz: except for E-EDID))
    and VGA (VESA 640 × 480 @ 60/72/75 Hz)
    signals.
    • HDMI: High-Definition Multimedia Interface
    • DVI: Digital Video Interface
    • HDCP: High-bandwidth Digital Content
    Protection
    • CEA-861-D compliance covers the
    transmission of uncompressed digital video
    with high-bandwidth digital content protection,
    which is being standardized for reception of
    high-definition video signals. Because this is
    an evolving technology, it is possible that some
    devices may not operate properly with the TV.
    • E-EDID: Enhanced-Extended Display
    Identification
    • Acceptable PC signal format:
    S-VGA: VESA 800 5 600 @ 56/60/72/75 Hz
    XGA: VESA 1024 5 768 @ 60/70/75 Hz
    W-XGA: VESA 1280 5 768 @ 60/75 Hz
    W-XGA: VESA 1360 5 768 @ 60 Hz
    S-XGA: VESA 1280 5 1024 @ 60/75 Hz
    However, these signal formats are converted to
    match the number of pixels of the LCD panel.
    Therefore, the TV may not display small text
    properly.
    If you connect this unit to your PC, the
    compressed image is displayed in S-XGA mode,
    therefore the picture quality may deteriorate and
    characters may not be read.

  • Why does my screen turn blue and freeze every time i try to plug in my 'mini display to hdmi' cable into my thunderbolt port in order to use an external monitor?

    why does my screen turn blue and freeze every time i try to plug in my 'mini display to hdmi' cable into my thunderbolt port in order to use an external monitor? it only works if i turn the computer on with it already plugged in.

    Do you have gfxCardStatus installed?  Is your monitor set to "Integrated" or "Discrete".  You want it set to Discrete to drive the external HDMI display.
    Try resetting the PRAM and SMC
    <About NVRAM and PRAM>
    <Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)>
    Are you sure you have a good miniDisplayPort to HDMI cable?
    Do you have another HDMI display you can test against (your neighbor's HDMI capable TV).
    Do you have friend that can test the cable using their Mac and maybe their TV or a monitor that has HDMI input.

  • I connected my laptop to the tv and it has worked before. this time only the laptop flashes the blue screen and the tv is saying no signal. when i tried to check the dispaly arrangement it says this:The Arrangement tab of Displays preferences is hidden

    i connected my laptop to the tv and it has worked before. this time only the laptop flashes the blue screen and the tv is saying no signal. when i tried to check the dispaly arrangement it says this:The Arrangement tab of Displays preferences is hidden because you only have a single display attached to this computer.

    It is not properly connected to the network.
    Make sure location is set correctly
    DNS should be on auto (settings - general - network)
    Try ethernet
    Signal strength on device won't account for issues, you would need a network report from istumbler, netstumbler or similar. This will show accurate signal strength along with noise and nearby networks

  • My TV has only 2 HDMI conections that are all ready in use for Directv and the Blueray. Can I use composed cables to conect Apple TV

    My TV has only 2 HDMI conections that are all ready in use for Directv and the Blueray. Can I use composed cables to conect Apple TV

    I'm going to take a guess and say that if your TV has 2 HDMI ports, it also has a component input (5 wire).   I'm also going to guess that either your DirecTv or your Blueray has a component output option.  If I had this setup, I would put my DTV on the component option and use the open HDMI port for the ATV2.
    I doubt you will be able to tell the difference on your DTV.  Most of the stores that demo HD use component wiring on their store models.  The only downside is that you may be giving up the highest sound (Dobly 5.1 or whatever they call it.) 
    Or you could just go to switching the HDMI cords from your BluRay to the ATV2 depending on which one you are watching.  I think I use my BluRay about 5% or less of my viewing time.  If I "tossed", I wouldn't shed a tear.

  • I currently have an old laptop and am thinking of upgrading to a new laptop in the near future, but I want to install lightroom anyways. Is it possible to download it on my current machine and still download it on my new laptop in the future?

    i currently have an old laptop with the intention of upgrading soonish. I would like to go ahead and download lightroom but am worried when i get the new machine it wont transfer over. Is it possible to put lightroom on multiple computers from the same one purchase?

    A single Lightroom license entitles you to two installations but for your personal use. There is no activation process for Lightroom, so you can simply uninstall from a computer you are no longer using and have it installed on two computers that you use. There are things to be aware of if you are going to move all of your work to a new computer. The following link will probably be of help to you.
