Try going into your control panel in your computer and if you have nvidia then open the settings and it should set itself to it. or try to start your laptop up with the tv on. there should also be some hotkeys you can use to change the output of your tv.

The RCA will not respond to a DVI-I signal. So make sure your laptop is actually DVI-D, and not DVI-I. The easiest way to check is look at the plug on the TV verses the plug on the laptop. If your Laptop has a DVI slot that appears to have more prongs it's a DVI-I, and will not work.

blue screen means no video signal, if the source is on hdmi ensure the cable is rca or in simple audio video jacks which u will have to connect in the dvi input of the tv reason is hdmi means high definition interface and transmits by hdcp like the data of an internet meaning its digital platform which the tv can only process thru the dvi inputs or component y,p,b

When using PS3 on RCA D52W19 TV, the screen does not fit ( it is zoomed and off-center) in 1080i resolution.


hello!
Have you tried to toggle "format" or "screen size"? On those sets non HD and HD settings could be adjusted separately. Try that, first. If no luck, try similar settings on PS3. I bet, you will be able to match screen format there, as well. To me it looks, like picture formats are mismatched. Also: try to use "component" cables, instead of DVI adapter cable, if nothing works.
good luck,
Alex.

How can i watch movies from computer to my tv


You probably need to get a composite video output card for your computer. Actually, I've seen many cards that have both a composite video output AND a DVI output port on 1 card. The DVI output will give you a noticeably sharper picture than composite video, but you need to check if your TV has a DVI or HDMI input. (If it was manufactured after 2000, it probably does.) If you TV was manufactured after 2006, it probably has 1 or more HDMI inputs instead of DVI. You can buy a DVI to HDMI converter cable. That takes care of the picture; to get sound to the TV, you will need to connect separate sound cables to your TV. Your computer needs to have a line-level output jack on it's sound card, and you will need to get an adapter cable (from Radio Shack) to convert the stereo mini-plug to 2 RCA type plugs to plug into your TV. And that should do it!

I have an r52wh74 tv. cant get it to display 720p


Hello Matiki64:

Yes this television does support 720p and 1080i. Hear is something that might solve your problem or at least get you going in the right direction.

Problems with DVI-HDTV Connection
• Make sure the DVI device is turned on and the cables are firmly connected. If problems still occur, turn off your device. Re-connect
your device. Reset the power by unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in.
• If you are tuned to the DVI-HDTV input and you’re receiving Unusable Signal message on-screen, contact the manufacturer of the
DVI device for further assistance.
• If you tune to the DVI-HDTV input and you see snow, the video goes in and out, or the video takes a long time to appear, your DVI
device is having trouble sending video information to the TV. Re-connect your device. Reset the power by unplugging the power
cord and plugging it back in. If problems persist, try connecting to the Y Pb Pr jacks instead if they are available or contact the
manufacturer of the DVI device for further assistance.
• If you have bars on each side of your picture, the device you connected might have a switch or a menu option allowing you to
change the picture format output that will fix this. Choose either 720p or 1080i.

Hooking up from hd receiver to hdtv ready projection tv. what cables do I use? vga or rca component red, blue, green and sync white/black? My hd receiver has output of :hdmi, rca component, s-video ,...


This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV-1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot (AV-4), but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot - if the picture doesn't roll, you're in business.

Once again, I doubt that your model # is a 60pp9202, since that model doesn't have a VGA or DVI slot. If the picture rolls after trying the above, you will need to purchase a HDMI-to-DVI-D cable and hook it up from the HDMI output of your HD receiver to the DVI slot (that looks like a VGA slot) on the back of your Philips or Magnavox.

Hd hook up for rca 52"dlp


If you have Direct TV HD the best way is to use a HDMI to DVI cable. If you only have the component (red/green/blue)connectors on the Direct TV Box that would be the best way. You will not have audio using the DVI cable, so you will have to run Red/White cable to the Audio Input.
