Question about Dynex 19 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

2 Answers

19'' Dynex TV does not come up as a Computer Monitor.

I read the manual. Cable connected. Pressed both "fn" and "f4" at the same time. Computer (Compaq Presario Laptop) screen blanked. OK. But the Dynex TV screen stayed blank. Tried all the buttons on the TV Remote. No go. Pressed fn + f4 ... laptop screen back ... again, off ... again, back ... etc. Tv screen stayed blank.

This TV works fine for my DVD player. Channel TV too, though I don't care to watch it.

    When you say video driver, what are you refering to? I am working through the PC connection - when I try to bump up the resolution to what the TV should be capable, the tv goes black and gives me a message about 'the signal not being supported'

    Same sa me but i have a 26" DYNEX LCD and mine says "NO SIGNAL"

  • Anonymous Apr 07, 2009

    I plug in to the Tv Via a VGA cable, then turn on my Presario, I get an error message saying VGA4 not supported.



    The solution is to reinstall the driver with TV connected (apparently), but no directions are given on how to do any of this.



    Please give step by step on how to solve the problem.

I had this same problem with the 19" model as well. I had to reinstall video driver with the tv hooked up in order for the resolutions to work properly. In order to do this I used an S-video cable which worked well enough to reinstall the video driver. I did not try safe mode which might have been easier, I just did not think of it at the time. With the video driver reinstalled while the TV is attached to my computer, I know enjoy a crisp 1440x900 screen resolution. Hope this helps.

When you turn it on press the set up/menu button. Make sure your cable is unplugged first. When in set up, go to channel setup and scan channels. Once the scan has started connect your cable back to the tv. Allow some time for the scan to complete. ***I learned this when I emailed a dynex technician. If it does not work after the above, email dynex http://www.dynexproducts.com/contact-us.html

Normally the computer will detect that you have hooked in the HDMI cable and will automatically send an signal to the HDMI cable. It sounds like the "automagic" didn't work.

What you need to do is press fn+f4 to cycle the display mode to send a signal through the HDMI port. This works in a multi-mode way. You hold down fn and press f4 one time. Don't let go of fn and you should see a mode indicator on the laptop display. Each time you press f4 it will cycle to another mode. Depending on your specific configuration you might need to cycle through VGA first to get to HDMI.

Which function key allows to switch to tv


Hi there,
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4    ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center fn + f2 Opens print options window fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser fn + f4 Switches the image among displays fn + f5 Initiates Standby fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness fn + f8 Increases screen brightness fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...
