HDMI Input in Samsung LCD TV

by Kumar_1 / June 12, 2012 3:31 AM PDT

I have a five year old Samsung LCD 39" TV. Once I connected a HP laptop's HDMI out put to the TVs HDMI input. It worked on with the laptop. But now it does not accept any HDMI inputs like Cable box or a DVD player with HDMI. Now I have connected them with RCA cables with reduced quality. How can I get the HDMI input on the TV to work again?

1. Check the manual for any reset feature.
2. Does it still work with the laptop?

Thank you for your help.

1. The manual did not help.

2. It still works with the laptop.

It had unplugged the TV when we were away for about a week, hoping that it will reset. But it did not help.

I can't find the exact model number. The fact the laptop still works is a good sign.
