Usually that means you have ther refresh rate up too high. display properties - settings pick the secondary display and go to advanced- monitor -choose a lower setting ( most TV won't do better than 60Hertz

No image, Just red and blue vertical line on display.


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

I am tring to connect my dell laptop wit intel 935 to my LG tv. I keep getting "invalid forma" message on tv. no images. Any suggestions?


You need to change the resolution on the laptop for the TV.
  1. Right click on your Laptop's desktop screen, and select Display properties, or Properties (depending on what O/S you are running)
  2. Select the Settings tab if you are in XP, or select Screen Resolution if you are in Vista or 7.
  3. You should now see the settings for setting the Display resolution for your Native Monitor and your LG TV (the TV must be plugged in to your laptop in order to see it in the Display resolution settings)
  4. Set your resolution to a lower resolution, e.x. 800x600, 1024x768, etc.

AKAI LCT 2060 was working well as a TV. Just hooked it up to my PC and the message on screen reads "No Signal" Checked monitor cable and it's good. checked old monitor and it works well. Why...


The display settings on your computer need to be turned down. Set it to 800x600 and move up from there, if the resolution is too high - the TV won't display it.

Samsung TV can't detect connection to laptop


Make sure you set the laptop to display at a resolution the TV can display, it seems best to start with 1024x768 then work up.

If you are using a VGA - HDMI converter it is possible you will not get a picture.

You should be able to set the laptop to 1024 x 768, plug it into the TV, select PC input on the TV remote, and the picture should appear.

If not, then check you have the monitor output on the laptop switched on, test it with another monitor to be sure.

If all the above still fails to work, and you've checked the cable the TV has a fault.

I hope this helps.

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).

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.

Using the TV as a computer monitor


Hi,

I am assuming that you have installed the cable to the appropriate jack/connectors on the back of the TV and that of the PC.

If you are using a laptop, you would need to press on the Fn + F? keys of the laptop to cycle through the different settings such as: laptop's display only, laptop & TV displays and TV display only. The F? key would be one in your laptop designated to engaged/enable external monitor (TV). Normally, it would have a monitor icon.

Please verify that your PC's screen resolution is 1366 x 768 or lower.

If you are using a desktop, you need to engage/enable the dual/twin view in Display Properties. Additionally, the TV must be powered on first before the desktop is booted.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
