Kworld pc to TV - avi does not show on TV screen

This is oddball. I can watch online films or TV shows on my TV with the Kworld pc ro tv converter, but when I try to watch .avi or .mpeg videos saved on my pc, the screen is blank. If I fullscreen the video, the whole TV screen is blank, but if I "restore down" so I can see my desktop behind the media player screen, the TV shows the desktop and the player window, but the actual video is missing. I can see it playing on my laptop screen, but on the TV that part of the screen is just blank.

This happens with .avi, .mpeg, and .mov files. I've tried Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and RealPlayer, with the same results. I've tried converting the file types, with no luck.

The original video files are using the DivX codec.

Any help would be appreciated.

This turned out to be due to weirdness in my laptop's onboard graphics card. If I set the external monitor to display the way an external monitor usually does, as a clone of the laptop screen, the videos show up blank. But if I set it as dual-screen (extend my desktop to this monitor) and drag the video app onto the second monitor, it works fine.

Pctv does not show anything on tv except colored lines


This may be caused by the inverter board found behind the LCD panel. You need to re-solder the two sides of the coil found on the inverter board.
There seems to be loose connections on the solder probably caused by heat..

Picture while booting up, lost when home is loaded


The PC to TV converter is not setup for the correct conversion. When PC's start up, they use 800x600 screens which is close to TV standard, and they can synch. If the PC is set for a much higher resolution for a monitor, it is too far off to display. Check the converter. Or set the display settings to 800x600.

I just connected my new Kworld PC/TV converter. My tv now displays large vertical color lines. I,ve connected the yellow video cable, s-video cable and the red/green/blue cable. I have a new Toshiba...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of checks:
  • verify that the P/N switch is set to the color system of your country. N (NTSC) for US and P for most of Euroope and Australia;
  • depending on how "old" the TV, the Screen Resolution of the Toshiba may have to be brought down to the lowest possible setting;
  • additionally, the Screen Refresh Rate may likewise need to be lowered say 60 Hz;
  • all of the connections you mentioned are video connections. However, only 1 should be used. You may have to experiment (again depending on the TV) which setting & connection would give you the best picture;
  • offhand, the component connection (if applicable, the red/green/blue cable) would give the best connection followed by S-Video and last would be yellow (composite).

Please postback results of initial checks.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

TRying to get my PC to TV converter up and running


I just purchased the Kworld 1600 PC to TV Game Box today. I also had the same problem as many others seem to have had. The TV screen displayed only colored bars. After searching on line for troubleshooting ideas I finally was able to correct the problem, thanks to help of people responding to these problems on "FixYa", and I thank you, as I was ready to return the product at a loss of 15% of the cost (restocking fee).
I am using a Toshiba Satelite L350D with Vista Home Premium and a 2005-32"JVC TV.

First ensure that the Monitor Y-cable supplied has been properly installed to your PC and your TV (my first mistake). Each plug is individually identified, that being, TV, monitor, scan cnvtr.
Second, on Vista go to Control Panel, open (Double left click) the personalization icon. You can then open your display settings.click on advanced settings, this will open a window for your graphics card. Click on "List All Modes", use an 800 x 600 High Color Mode, 16 bit, 59 or 60 hertz, hit 'OK' and that window will close.Then hit 'Apply' in the Graphics Card window(the screen will go black and then set itself to the new mode). You may have to try a few different 800 x 600 modes to find the best one for your TV.
Thirdly this converter is only for video, not audio.
For audio you must use a 1/8 stereo plug from your PC headphone jack to an RCA adapter into the Left and Right Audio Input of your TV.
Make sure you are using the same Video Input Section for both your audio and video (Video1, Video2, Video3, you cannot plug the video into Video1 and the audio into Video2).

After setting this converter up on my Laptop I was also able to plug it into my 7+ year old desktop (Cicero P4, XP Home Edition).
I hope grouping these 3 problems into 1 will help others and save them some time and frustration.
Thanks again to everyone on "FixYa" for their help.

KWorld PC to TV Converter


I had the same problem. It turned out the issue was that I had the VGA Y-cable connectors between the PC and the KWorld box reversed. They look like they should be interchangeable, but they are not. A closer look at the cable connectors shows that one is marked "PC", one is marked "Monitor", and the 3rd is marked "SCAN CNVTR". Once I got them plugged into the right places, I got the screen image on the TV.
