Question about Sharp Aquos LC-46D62U 46 in. LCD HDTV

Screen turns off

I just recently purchased the evga gtx 260 geforce video card and since that purchase my television(which is also my monitor) will turn off at random. there doesnt seem to be a simalar problem because the tv is turning off not the screen going blank.  there is no response from the tv for anywhere from 30 sec to a couple minutes.  when it does power up again the opc kicks in and it properly dims the screen and everything works fine for a time.  this will happen at least a couple times a week.  i have been trying the other devices that i have hooked up (Sony bravia stereo, 360, ps3) but i dont use those as much as the computer so i havent seen the problem with them.  so far to the best of my knowledge it has only done it with the computer.

    It turns off when changing the channel to a certain station (1423). Then
    turns itself back on after about 6 seconds and shows a blank screen. I have only had the television for 3 weeks.

I have a Proscan 40 inch 1080P LCDTV (40LD45Q), but when I connect my computer to it, (GTX 260) with DVI-HDMI cable, it says the native resolution is 1366x768. Is Proscan lying that this TV is 1080P?


You can attempt to force 1080p to the TV by unchecking the box "hide modes this monitor cannot display" in the display adapter propteries, then try to select 1920 by 1080p, 60hz, 32 bit color, and see what happens. Post back what your findings are.

NO fix. Send back to Microsoft for repair or replacement. Video card overheated and died. Bad cooling.

LG 22" TV with Geforce nVidia 5500 FX 256MB AGP card


Try getting a new video driver. Foreware = motherboard drivers and such, not video.

I saw this driver on Nvidia.com

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html

Its the XP driver for those 5000 series FX cards like yours. Try installing that and checking out the Nvidia Panel after.

1680x1050 is an odd resolution for TV, that is what normal 22" monitors have but I guess it will do up to 1680x1050 only when hooked up to a PC.

Astar 32'' LCD - anyone have monitor drivers?


I purchased this model

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889114016

and have been able to get 720p and 1080i resolutions on DVI connections from my PC with both Intel and ATI graphics AND 1920x1200 resolution over VGA from the Intel integrated connection (the ATI has only DVI). You need to dump the EDID to see what resolutions and timings the TV is telling the video card it supports. Then you need to get a video card driver that allows for custom resolutions to be created. First download this free utility and post the output: http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm

There was not a problem with the TV. I just wanted to register our recent purchase as directed by the Product Regstration Card. I still cannot find the site where registration is allowed online.

Haier 50 inch, has power, but no screen/sound


No. Either you have in a 'video' mode (inputs) or it's a defective unit. 
Bring it back to the store and let them bare the weight - sorry about your disappointing purchase. Better luck next time around.  :/

Acer LCD Monitor AL2671W - screen too bright!


I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.

At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.

Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!
