Question about Sony BRAVIA XBR KDL-V26XBR1 26 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Hi, I am trying to connect a 32" sony bravia with a laptop via VGA male-to-male cable. I am getting"unsupported signal",besides laptop refresh rate is 60 Hz and have tried all possible laptop resolutions. Now the only solution remains changing Sony resolution,or pc setting of Sony. Neither is possible. Pc setting are not highlighted(perhaps not when connection is not established)and I am unable to make changes. I cant either change Sony resolution from full to normal. Someone that has identified this problem,or has got any knowledges may help please? Also,a solution will help other readers who are experiencing the same problem. Thanks in advance for your time! Cheers,Tony

    Hello bobint17,

    Unfortunately,I dont have another laptop,specifically a Sony laptop.Another solution needs to be found.As for the laptop refresh rate,it is 60 Hz,not less.

    I believe we have to concentrate finding the solution on how to change pc settings on the Sony bravia TV,so that resolutions on both equipments are similar.

    Also I thought perhaps using a SVGA cable(instead of a simple VGA) may solve the problem,since my minimum laptop resolution is 800x600.Having a look at TV manual,minimum resolution for VGA cable was 640x480,but my laptop cant support this,plus cable I am using is not svga.Is this something we have to refer as well?

    Cheers,

Does the Sony VGN SF790 support hdmi cables? I would like to connect to my Sony Bravia TV


Hi.

No I'm afraid not. It only supports VGA out. If your TV supports a PC input then a male to male VGA cable will do. VGA does not support audio so you will also need an audio lead to connect to the TV too.

Bravia 32'' hdtv says ''no signal'' when I connect my Sony vgn FW27OJ with 15 pin wire.


Connect the VGA cable to the external video port on the laptop, power up the Bravia first, switch the Bravia input to PC and then boot up the laptop. The Windows image etc will be automatically diverted to the Bravia.

"Unsupported Signal" means that your laptop is probably set to a resolution or refresh rate that yoru TV doesn't support. You will need to go into your Laptops video settings to make them match what your tv will display.

Unsupported Signal. Adjust your PC output


Boot into safe mode or VGA mode and reduce the resolution to 800 by 600 and set the refresh rate to 60. After this, reboot normally and check the box to have your video to display only the settings that work for your system, and choose the desired resolution, and refresh should be 70-85 to reduce flicker. Appears as tho your video card is set too hot for the monitor.
MORE: In safe mode or vga mode you may not be able to adjust the settings. Fine. After a reboot, you may be able to start normally and the vga settings might still be there (640x480). Then you can adjust them.

Pc setting for sony bravia


'Unsupported Signal' Error indicates that TV is accepting the signals for Video but not able to display because resolution doesn't matches. Else the message would be 'No Signal'.
Follow the steps-
NOTE- Make sure cable is 15 pin(at both ends) VGA cable, working fine between PC & Monitor.
1.The standard resolution of laptop(any) which would support is 1024*768.
2. Toggle the display output from Laptop Fn Keys depending on Laptop Brand.
3. Connect the cable after settings made.
Also PC Settings will not be highlighted until connection is made.

PC input to Sony Bravia - from Sony Vaio Laptop - unsupported sig


"Unsupported signal" suggests one of two things. Either the refresh rate on your computer is set too high (it MUST be at 60 Hz.) or you have the display resolution set too high

LCD TV and VGA output


The resolution and refresh rates have to match exactly to the TV for it to work correctly with the computer.

The newer computers are using much faster refresh rates by default. Their default resolution is also different.

Consult the manual for the TV and see if the computer's external monitor output can be set to match to what the TV exactly requires. Both the refresh rate and resolution are critical.
