Connect VGA (D-sub 15 pin) cable from PC to TV (RGB PC) input jack. Connect audio cable from PC to TV. Set screen resolution on PC to be compatible with TV, such as 800 X 600 or 1024 X 768 etc. Select on the TV, the PC INPUT using the TV remote when ready to use as monitor.

Under PICTURE on the TV select SCREEN (RGB-PC). You can AUTO-CONFIG or you can set resolution manually to the same you set PC to. Other adjustments can be done here as well to get optimum picture on TV from PC.

I have upto now been using my lg Flatron L1919S monitor as a tv with a separate tuner. Today i replaced it with an lcd tv and was going to use the monitor for my computer. However when i connected it up...


It means your PC video resolution is too high for the monitor to display, you need to set your PC video to the native resolution of this monitor, 1280 x 1024 @60Hz.
Start up in sfae mode (hit f8 while booting up), select VGA support, then right click on desk top/properties to bring up display property/setting. set the new resolution , reboot.

It means your PC video output resolution is too high for the LG monitor to display (your old monitor (CRT) can handle higher resolution than this LG LCD monitor), you need to set the PC video resolution to native resolutionof this monitor which is 1280 x 1024 @60Hz. You may have to use the old monitor (CRT) to set the resolution to 1280 x 1024@60Hz, then hook up the LCD monitor.

Connecting laptop to lcd


You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).

Lcd tv wont let me view pc input


First, make sure you do not have a bad cable going from the PC to the TV.

On your computer try the following:

Go to START, CONTROL PANEL, DISPLAY PROPERTIES

Make sure you have the secondary monitor enabled.
Set the screen size for the secondary monitor to 800 X 600
Go to ADVANCED PROPERTIES and make sure the refresh rate for the secondary monitor is set to 60HZ.

These settings on the PC should make the picture compatible with most all TV monitors. If the problem still persists then you may indeed have something wrong with the TV.

Invalid format when conected to laptop


Go into your control panel. Select display. There will be a picture showing 2 screens. Select the 2nd screen, and lower resolution to it's minimum. Apply and test. Slowly increase till you find what your happiest with. Worked for me using a ASUS laptop and LG60'plasma.
