SOURCE: mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

SOURCE: Protron PLTV-32 Television source changes on it's on.

This is NOT an electrical issue. Anyone who is half handy with their hands can easily fix this.

I had this issue for awhile, and I just figured it out. There is a plastic strip that cover the the buttons on the tv. They want you to think it is a touch panel, but it isn't. Anyway it is glued on, not screwed or attached in any other way. The reason it keeps changing the source is because the glue expands when it heats up, and causes to source button to be pressed. There are several ways to fix this. You can remove the strip which is long about the length of the tv. Stick a knife or screwdriver under one end and slowly pull it off. Problem is solved, but it makes the screen look ugly. The way to fix this is by using a razor or knife and cutting off the glue (which is really tape) under where the buttons are. You can replace it with better glue, or just eliminate the glue from under the buttons and keep the glue on both ends, so you can re-attach it to the tv.

You may need to set up the video card to see the TV so you can display the computer on it.Somewhere in the setting for your video card should be settings for that.

SOURCE: trying to hook up laptop with haier tv using vga

Dod you use HOTKEYS on the laptop to tell it to send the signal the VGA outlet of the laptop? The hotkeys function can be set to turn off the laptop screen and only have external monitor to be the only display or it can be set to have both of them on.

My pc wont recognise my tv as a second monitor - conected with VGA cable


the video card you used have a capability for dual monitor..so 1st thing that you need to do is to make sure that the computer recognized the 2nd monitor and activate dual monitor capability on the nvidia panel..after that on your tv select the proper source(like VGA, HDMI1 etc.) on which you'll be able to see the the video from the computer to your TV..

I have a Samsung SuncMaster 940BW 19'' LCD Monitor. It's a geat Monitor in my humble opinion in everything, except that since i got it i have one problem with it, and it wasnt possible for me...


This is a common problem with monitors when changing resolution. What probably happened is you may have tried to change the resolution, or an application changed the resolution, to an incompatible resolution.

For example, if you have a tiny little screen it can't display that huge resolution that a 32 inch monitor has. So, your monitor is stuck in that wrong resolution.

To fix this problem, you need to boot into Safe Mode. Restart your computer, and as it is booting up tap F8 a bunch of times, and then select Boot into Safe Mode.

When it boots up, right click on the desktop, click Properties (Windows XP) or Screen Resolution (Windows 7). When the window pops up, click Settings (if on Windows XP, if on Windows 7 skip to next step). From this window, change the resolution back to the basic 800 x 600 screen resolution.

Now, reboot your computer normally. You should be able to see the desktop. Now, you can do the same thing that you did in safe mode and turn up your resolution. BUT, when you change it, if the screen goes BLANK again, DO NOT press anything. After 15 seconds it should go back, and you can try a lower resolution.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using FixYa.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

HOW TO GET NETFLIX ON MY TV FROM PC


Your TV should have a VGA port as one of its inputs. So your TV will act as a very big monitor. All you need is a VGA cable. If you are using a desktop computer, you can use the same VGA that you use to connect the computer to the monitor. If it's a laptop, you will need to find a VGA cable to use.
Remember to switch the TV input to the VGA source, usually listed as PC on newer TV's.
Good luck.

Tv is on when plugged in but doesnt respond to any button inputs.shows "snow" on the screen but nothing more. Model is 42wp48a toshiba 42 inch plasma.


This is a display device or monitor only. It lacks a tuner, so there is no way to connect an antenna and tune off air TV channels - and as such; fails the definition of a TV. A TV by very definition is a monitor AND a tuner. Without the optional "RTB421 RCA Terminal Board" installed in the monitor, it can only accept a PC Input signal (VGA).

If the RTB421 is installed, you will be able to choose from PC, Video, S-Video and RGB signals. The full details on this RTB421 Terminal Board and how to connect source video devices for playback is explained on pages 32 through 35 of the manual.

If the RTB421 is installed, and connected to a source video device (Cable TV converter, Satellite Tuner, Blu Ray player, DVD, VCR, etc.) as shown in the manual, you should be able to scroll through the inputs by pressing the Input button on the monitor or remote (make sure the batteries are fresh). Keep the lower left bezel of the monitor clear of obstructions that can block the infrared (IR) remote receiver window.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Pc and lcd tv


that's really easy. just plug in a VGA or DVI cord from the PC to the Sova TV (those are both regular cables that normally would go the computer monitor). then press the source button on the remote (not too fast, it takes a second to detect the signal), until you see VGA or DVI, and your computer screen should show up. use the display settings on your computer to get the best resolution on the tv. depending on your computer, you may have a program that can save different screen resolution profiles for you (since the Sova TV resolution and the computer's optimized resolution using a different screen (such as the built in screen on a laptop -- or a different monitor with better resolution than the Sova TV), this way you can easily toggle between settings depending on what monitor you use.
