Most tvs can only handle a couple resolutions (ie 640x480) through the pc input. Even some HD tvs can only do 480. Check that your video is turned on and setup to the acceptable resolutions.

right click your desktop
go to properties
click settings tab
click on the 2nd monitor
make sure the box is clicked at the bottom

Replace it, the cost to repair will be close to a new one. Flat screens are dirt cheap right now.

Sony Bravia flat screen TV when turned on has black screen. Green light on the bottom is lite up, electric plug is plugged into house socket, no picture only black screen.


If audio is OK, the fault is with its backlight section. If audio too is absent, the fault is with its digital main board. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!

I have a toshiba LED TV Model 40PB200, i bought it two months now. Recently, the audio in port started producing a sound as if microphone is on and the VGA for computer flickers when i connect a laptop on...


One thing is that unless it is usb you should always have the devices powered DOWN before connecting them via" wire electric data cables". it only takes 3 static volts of electricity to damage a circuit board. when you zap you buddy when you wear sox its 20 to 30,000 volts of static electricity so 3 volts would not be known let alone felt or seen. Power down and you will be well not you .

My tv has gone some orange colour


Try unplugging your tv and anything connected to it - you might want to take a picture first so you have a reference. I would also unplug everything connected to the tv: cable, stereo, etc. Wait a few minutes, then plug in and re-connect everything.

You can also go into your TV's setup menu and adjust the picture settings - try restoring the default settings first.
