How do I activate the vga on a Mitsubishi Medallion 1080?

I am trying to use the vga device on a MitsubishiMedallion 1080. The owners manual is quite vague, telling me to simply connect the vga and activate the projection from my notebook. I have connected the VGA cable to the correct ports. I have done the right click thingy on the desktop that everyone talks about (which takes you to monitor options and resolution). I press windows p to bring up projection options (split, extended, etc.) No matter what settings I use, I can not get the VGA to work. I have gone through the tv device menu. I know where to create new devices, but under create device, there is no VGA option, It shows DVD 1 2 3, Component 1-3, Input 1-5, Input-DTV...but no VGA. The way the manual explains it, leads me to believe that it should just automatically detect my notebook once I turn on the lcd, monitor, etc, but nothing happens what so ever. I am using an Asus G73, which has both HDMI and VGA...the Medallion TV, however, was from 03 and does not have HDMI input, only VGA. Any input would be greatly appreciated, this is really confusing me and hurting my brain. Thank you for your time,

SOURCE: No Picture from Component Input #1 or #2 but do have audio via Surrond Sound

Simplest thing would be that your component cables are not HU'd correctly. Having them reversed would do this.

SOURCE: connect Macbook Pro to Component input

you should be able to use an SVGA to component rca connector on any component input - i have a wd-65513, and thats how I have my pc hooked up to it. I could also never get a clear picture using the SVGA plug on the back of the set.

Vga input to my mitsubishi Medallion hdtv 1080 doesn't work

You can't just plug in the input and expect it to work. You have to bring up the input selection screen on the TV first and select that specific input. Read the manual to see how to select different inputs and you should be fine.

My mitsubishi medallion hd 1080 doesn't show content from component cable

Some of the older Mitsubishi with HD 1080 have only one component input for HD---it is marked on rear as DTV----also a model number may allow me to give another suggestion--Some of these sets (ws, wt, vs models) will on occasion lock out or disable the input/s.

Depending on model number most also have 3 hidden menus---one is the option menu----it allows with the Mitsubishi remote via a 4 digit number (by model number) to enter there and do a hard reset of the set----sets every setting back to factory original---seen it "cure" all kinds of odd problems from missing rear inputs, no sound, odd video issues---you name it.

Get me the model number and I will see if can find the code for yours--you can also try hooking first direct a 1080 blue ray or Dvd if you want to see if the input is active or not first.

I am trying to connect my laptop via VGA cord to my 65" Mitsubishi Medallion, but when I click on the VGA device selection in the device menu, it goes to a blue screen and says "Warning: Turn on...

Press the Windows key + P on your laptop.
Or, if that doesn't work, look on your F keys for something that looks similar to a monitor.
Press the FN key and that key.
This should bring up your laptop's display on the tv.

Mitsubishi Medallion 1080 WS-55413 - colors not aligned

There is no "reset" as the set has in the customer and tech menus ways to attempt to manually adjust this.

under convergence in the customer menu select advanced and follow the instructions on the screen.

If Red or Blue or Green are skewed and will not adjust it means one of the two STK-394-250 CONVERGENCE chips this set uses is bad.

Depending on where you buy them they will range in price from about 12 dollars each to nearly 35 dollars each.

Let me know what you find; this may or may not be a do it yourself repair as some real expertise is required to correctly get at and replace the chips.
