Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV
HI, Im trying to connect my pc to a 42PX5D LG plasma tv.... I have changed the settings on the TV to RGB/PC and connected the computer. When I start up the computer it Loaded okay, and displayed on the TV until it went to show the desktop, then the screen goes blank and I get an error stating "invaild format" Please help... Thanks Sarah
Hi Sarah, You may want to try lowering the resolution of your computer down first before connecting the 42PX5D. Since everything seems to be working except when you get to the desktop then your PC might be set to a resultion that's too high for the LG (am not 100% sure, but I think that LG's max res is 1024 X 768). Try to adjust your PC's resolution while still connected to a regular monitor, right click on any free/clear part of your desktop and click properties. Display Properties window will pop-up, click on Settings tab, adjust Screen resolution towards the left,trym lowest posiible, color quality, again lowest possible. Then hook it up to the LG. If desktop now displays in LG, do the same again but this time going up. Do it by increment and stop when LG screen goes blank. Press escape to go to setting prior to blank. Adjust color quality best setting acceptable to the LG. Good luck and hopes this work out for you. Regards.

The manual recommends using a resolution of 1024x768 and a refresh rate of 60Hz when you connect a PC to this model. You've probably trid the correct resolution, but my guess is you need to change the refresh rate. - Mav (Australia)
