Re: Unable to use HDMI IN port on B550

hi yaoyuan,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Have you tried Pressing the Display Input source button while the HDMI in is connected.

Also try the device that your trying to output in the lenovo into other LCD device if it will display Okay on other HDMI devices.

Re: Unable to use HDMI IN port on B550

Hi Solid_Curver,

I had tried with other LCD devices and it works. Also by plugging in the HDMI cable before I went into input mode. But none of them worked for me. I realized that when the monitor is fully powered off my laptop is able to detect the monitor however once I turned it on, it will lose the signal.

Re: Unable to use HDMI IN port on B550

Hey everyone.

 

I'm from Brazil and Im with a similar problem to yaoyuan, or sort of...

My Ideacentre B550 dont work the Hdmi-in when I try to use my Playstation 3. I've tested my cable tv at hdmi in it, and works great. I connect my netbook at the hdmi in at B550 and the B550 worked as a secondary monitor just fine too. 

But when I connect the ps3 at hdmi-in the b550 seems to get it (is not as I dont plug anything) because the screen is not total black but a dark grey (the counter when the b550 doesnt find anythign didnt appear), but no sound or image appear.. .

I changed hdmi cable but nothing happen. Used the same hdmi cable at a tv and ps3 and works.

PS3 works just fine at the 3 tvs i have, with the same hdmi. only when try the b550 no image appears. Cables (i teste 3) are ok, PS3 is ok...

 

Did anybody knows anything about an incompatible thing to ps4 and Lenovo B550?

 

* I've checked cable, the source option at the b550, settings at ps3 (setup up at another screen as when I plugged into b550 no image appears). I've also try to use a hdmi swicht but no changes at all. All the time the only difference is that b550 is dark grey when pluged the ps3 (and not black).

 

Cheers

Re: Unable to use HDMI IN port on B550

I foundhow o fix it

 

You will have to plug you PS4 on a normal TV. Since my PS4 is in portuguese I dont know the exact names in English

 

But you need to go to config in PS4. Look for System config

 

The you will ENABLE DCHP and HDNI DEVICE LINK

 

For me t works... hope help someone
