Hi guys, so i bought a HDMI switch(3 in 1 out) recently to hook up 2 devices(Laptop & PS4) to my TV(only 1 HDMI in port).

PS4 works fine with the switch, however when i switch it to my laptop, there is no display on the TV.

I have no issues with a direct HDMI connection from Laptop > TV. I've read on some places that it could be due to the HDMI cable(3meters) being too long hence requiring a switch with an external power supply?
 
The order you turn on the laptop and select the input on the TV will affect the "handshake" between them.
If you have the laptop booted up and then select that input try booting it after you select the input and vice versa.
It may take as long as 10 seconds for the TV to show your laptop.
