Re: DPM Mode???

You might need to lower the resolution on your computer, the TV has a maximum resolution that it can handle, if you have it set too high you won't get a picture.

AOC L24H898 - Several problems. 1)Only 3 Display modes - AV, HDMI, PC. 2)In PC mode screen is white with barely-discernable Desktop. 3) Menu button does nothing (pressing Channel + and - together lo

This sounds like a common problem on these TVs (it's happened to both of my AOC TVs a couple times). Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

Attaching computer to tv after load, screen goes blank tv says video mode not supported.

it sound like you need to check your instruction book for the compatibility setting between the monitor and computer. see if your monitor has an auto feature, if so press it with the computer hooked up to it. this is if you are using the 15pin hd connection. otherwise it could be a setting on your menu of the monitor to change the refresh rate.

VG4 mode on Insignia 19" widescreen LCD wont accept computer

go to your control panel of your computer (using a different monitor obviously) and change your screen resolution to 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, or 1440x900. any of those resolutions should work. also go to advanced and make sure it is set at 60 herz.

I pressed rgb on the remote-now i cant get out of that mode

Have you tried changing the TV to another input? Try Press "TV" at the top then press "TV" near the bottom or try pressing the "INPUT" button on the TV itself until you get to TV. RGB is just another input for the TV, just like DVD or HDMI or VCR, but it is the plug in the back for a computer monitor. Yes, if you'd like to hook up your computer to your TV you can through this plug, it looks like a (most likely blue) with 3 rows of holes/pins that you can plug another RGB cable into your computer and have the biggest computer monitor on the block! haha Although, if you have a PLASMA TV (not LCD) you can't use a computer for long (no more than 15 mins) because PLASMA TV's have a tendancy to "burn-in" very easy and it is sometimes not fixable. You'll have a ghost image of any stationary image that is on the screen for too long. That goes the same for any news channels with a "ticker tape" near the outside edge that is on the screen the whole time. If you have LCD, no worries! They're designed just for that problem to never happen. Hope this helps.

Invalid format message when trying to use the RGB(PC) port

Honestly, that sounds like one of two things happened. Either the resolution of your computer video card changed or (I'm not sure with your specific TV) the TV's resolution changed.
If through the TV menus you can adjust PC resolution, I would try changing the resolutions. In the LG 47LB5DF TV, press Menu, then go to Picture, then go down to Screen. On the screen menu, you will see Resolution, Position, Size, Phase, and Reset. First try adjusting the Resolution to some of the options you see. If that doesn't work, try to reset the screen settings.
If adjusting those settings on your TV does not help, then you will have to change the resolution through the computer. Try connecting a monitor to the computer. If you get a picture through the monitor, on the desktop right click and select Properties. If using XP go to the setting tab, if using Vista/7, select Display Settings. Lower the resolution to something you think the TV will be able to handle, then connect the PC to the TV again. If you are using an HDMI connection to the TV, you may have to turn off the computer, connect the cable, then turn the computer back on with the TV on the correct input.
If the monitor doesn't show the picture or if you don't have another monitor, you can try adjusting the picture in safe mode, by pressing F8 after you press the power button, before you see the Windows loading screen. Press if multiple times if necessary. You should see a screen that gives you a few startup options. Select Safe Mode. After Windows boots up, you should still see the screen as the resolution would have been reduced. From there try changing your display settings.
Hopefully that info has helped. I noticed that you asked this question 2yrs ago, so I hope you have already figured out how to fix your problem. I simply wished to post this in case it would help you or anyone else had a similar problem. Good luck and take care.
