No RGB signal power will be shut down

Try this. With the PC and TV on, in RGB mode, go into the menu screen of the TV with the remote (could also be done while in TV mode). Go to the far right tab "Setup". Use the arrow keys to go down to the "System Reset" option. When prompted "are you sure" select "Yes". Power the monitor off and on, and the problem should be gone.

The only monitor I've ever had has been an Lcd tv using a vga to dvi connection. for no apparent reason it just stop working. I've taken the card out gotten a new cable & still will only get flash of video...

Logical substitute testing. First,Does the TV still work as a TV? If yes then the TV is ok and it is then down to either the conveter or Video section of the computer.  If not,do you have a different TV to hook it too , just to see? OR Can you borow a monitor? Does the computer work with the monitor? If you find that the original TV is the problem it is likely not worth fixing if it is a solid state model as they have  easily servicable parts.

Sound but no picture

Hello Dabizot,

With the price of the new tv's, I would recommend getting a new tv. It's only a 19" and you can get a flat panel 19" for less than $ 200.00 It may cost you $ 100 plus to get it repaired along with any new parts. If you want to spend less money try looking at the yard sales, people are always selling used TV's for cheap.

Hooking up computer to T.V.

You do about anything on your TV that you can on a monitor however on a regular (not HD) TV resolutions over 640x480 (or 720x480) will scale down and not look as good.

If you can see the desktop and mouse but no icons or start menu then look for a setting 'overscan compensation' in the video control panel. Enable this and adjust until you can see more of your desktop.

No image on tv using video card.

If you open the Radeon software utility, in the advanced screen settings you should be able to set "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" to on for the TV screen. Then all you have to do is open your video player software and drag its window across to the tv, then maximise it. If you are having trouble doing this, some video player programs, especially dvd players playing dvds will not show the picture on the tv. If you want to watch .avi files then the best free player around at the minute is DivxPlayer - go to to download. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)
