why cant my Calypso CLP32LC1a tv support audio when the HDMI

Resolved Question:

why can't my Calypso CLP32LC1a tv support audio when

the HDMI connections are used? I have one further question: Should both the SPDIF JACK on the CALYPSO BE connected to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT JACK (COAXIAL) be connected together; maybe so they can communicate with each other? Note: I am referring to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT JACK on the Samsung DVD player.

All 3 of the HDMI connections on the Calypso 32 provide excellent video.

Yes.
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 3 years ago.

Have you tried using the PCM audio output or the STEREO audio output?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I tried selecting the PCM and also bitstream for the audio output from the Samsung, neither worked. T have not run across a Stereo setting, but I will look for one now.
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 3 years ago.

Ok your set lacks documentation in a bad way, I cannot get a manual or anything for it. Any way you can post me a picture of the back of the tv where the inputs are? I want to look for something. (if you can post a picture, please click the icon above where you are typing with the green tree on it. This will allow you to upload a picture)

I am relativly new with computers. I dont know how to upload or use webcam. I checked the Calypso manual and found nothing about stereo outputs. By documentation do you mean user instructions?
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 3 years ago.

No I was actually hoping to find a service manual so I could look at the audio circuit and how it relates to HDMI.

 

IS there any red and white jacks right next to the HDMI input on the back of the tv?


Tim

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
There are no red and white jacks next to the HDMI inputs. However, I did get audio from the tv when I pressed hard on the HDMI connector. It seems that the problem has been a bad connection/ faulty cable. I would like to get back to you after further testing.
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 3 years ago.

Ok well glad you found that! Hopefully you can change out that HDMI cable and solve the issue, let me know if you need anything.

 

Tim

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Thank-you Tim.
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 3 years ago.

No problem.

 

Tim

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Well now there is no video. It is hard to believe that all three HDMI inputs are bad;so it must be the cable. I have found your help beneficial, and worth the $17 dollars.
Sincerely,
Paul Cavanaugh
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 3 years ago.

Ok Paul, sounds good I would agree with you on the bad HDMI cable.

 

Let me know if you need anything in the future.
