This happened to me when the computer signal did not match the TV. Turn the TV off and disconnect the power for 10 seconds. Worked for me.

How to I get the TV to show TV input. Show me everything else?


Hi EA.

Some of the answer will depend on the particular model of TV you have. Most flat panel TVs have multiple possible inputs, with some array of choices like HDMI 1, HDMI 2, Component, VGA, Cable that you can toggle through with your remote.

Most of them, in my experience, also will check first for inputs from the different components, and skip them if they don't show a video signal. In some cases, as was the case with my past Mitsubishi rear projection TV, each input channel had an option for either showing it or skipping it when cycling through inputs - that way if you just had Cable and a DVD player, you didn't have to cycle through 8 other inputs each time you switched.

If you're saying that a VGA input to the TV shows up fine on the screen, but other inputs don't, then that narrows it down and shows that the screen is working OK. I'm not completely clear then whether you have things plugged into other inputs like HDMI or component. if nothing else is plugged in, I'd guess the system detects no inputs from those ports and ignores them. If they are plugged in, but you don't see them, then you likely will need to activate or toggle those particular channels to be included amongst selections.

Hoping this helps, and Happy Holidays!

I have a Model D12-100 flat-screen TV, hooked up to DirecTV. I have lost my TV remote and have lost the signal for DirecTV. How do I get the signal to the HDM1 or HDM2 category without the TV remote?


First off, D12-100 is your direct TV Box, Not your TV. A D-12 -100 direct tv box is not an HD box and will only connect to your tv via a coaxial cable or av jacks (red, white, yellow).
If you have lost your remote for your tv and your direct tv remote does not operate it, then you should be able to find the manual buttons on your television somewhere along the edge of the screen.
Toggle inputs till your on "TV" then use the channel selection to toggle it up or down till it's on channel 3 or 4 for Direct tv, If that doesn't work toggle inputs again and try the AV inputs. And of course if you want to use another device toggle inputs to HDMI 1 or 2.

Link ASUS laptop to Sharp Aquos LCD TV


No, a DVI to VGA adapter will not work. (The TV is looking for the digital signal from a set top box. This is different from the analog signal on the VGA cable.) You need a converter. Your best bet would be a VGA to component video converter. (I am assuming that the Sharp TV has a component video input.) This page has some examples: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc . Note a VGA to component video cable will not work. The VGA to component cables are for projectors that read the RGB signal. The component video signal is YPbPr.

Connect the VGA cable to the converter and the component video cable to the TV and the converter with the computer and TV off. Turn on the TV first and set it to the component video input and then turn on the computer. Then (assuming the VGA port is enabled - adjust in the BIOS if needed) set the computer's video output to the VGA port. (On my Windows 7 laptop, this can be done by right-clicking on the desktop. Choose Graphics Properties and set the display to the external monitor or both. Click Apply and then confirm the change (on the external monitor if using the single monitor). (VGA to Composite video converters also exist if you do not have an available component video input on your TV.)

If your computer is fairly new, you may have an HDMI port. Your TV may be able to read the signal with a DVI to HDMI cable. (It depends on the TV. Not all of them will read the computer's signal on the DVI port. Check the documentation for your model. TVs without a VGA port are less likely to support this feature.)

I hope this helps.

I am trying to connect my laptop, the option for PC is not highlighted, therefore I cannot use it as an input source. Is there a way I can change the input source menu?


no you cant change the input source menu

source must be present and active for it to show in menu

make sure PC is hooked up to VGA input and make sure PC is toggled so it has the display going to TV - once this is correct you should see it as an input option

write back if you need more help and give m,e more details like what type of PC you are hooking up as well as what input and wiring you are trying

good luck!!!

No VGA signal from my Lenovo laptop to the tv


Most notebook computers can be "toggled":

* video-output only to LCD screen
* video-output only to external VGA
* video-output to both device

Be sure that you toggle to select the 2nd or 3rd of the above settings.

TRYING TO INPUT LAPTOP TO RGB IN,AUDIO WORKS BUT VISUALY "NO SIGNAL"


Reading the online manual - You should have the laptop connected by VGA - PC input
VGA Connection you need to select the correct input on the TV
  • Select the RGB-PC input source on the TV using the INPUT button on the remote control.
you will need to set the laptop up to output to the VGA output, to do this - varies by different manufacturers - But often F4 or F5, with the FN key selects the VGA output - have a look at the F keys across the top of the machine and see if you can see a picture of a screen - then use the FN and that F key together to toggle between display it will change to <Laptop Screen Only><Laptop screen and VGA output><VGA output only> not necessarily in that order.

Screen went blank after hooking computer to it


Let's cover the obvious.

The TV works fine with other inputs (cable TV), right?

The laptop is plugged into the VGA port on the TV and the input setting is set to "VGA", right? (or does toy computer have an HDMI port that you are using?)

Is it a laptop or a PC?

If it's a laptop and the TV is connected correctly and functioning otherwise, you need to turn on the remote display port of your laptop. It's a key sequence that toggles from laptop -> external -> both.

If it's a PC, it might be a signal incompatibility. Try different resolutions or refresh rates.

Good luck.

Why won't my tv display my computer screen


Hi. The best way to hook your computers display to your LCD screen will be to use the VGA input socket. If your video card can support both S-video input and VGA, you can use either one but, the VGA is best for optimal resolution. This is the easy way to do this. Step one, connect the VGA cable to the computers video card and then, run the other end of this same cable to the VGA input slot on the LCD screen.Step 2, next you will make sure that the LCD's input selection is selected to show what is being transferred from the CPU video card by using the input button on the lcd remote control. The lcd(your tv) should be on VGA or PC input signal. Step 3, now, you Will have to also make sure that your video card is set to transfer this signal as well by pulling up your video cards software window and switch to the proper options. once this is done, you should get a signal. Be sure to use the VGA input/output ports on both the lcd television and your cpu for optimal transfer of the video stream. Here is a pic of your back panel. use the input port labeled I for good PC input quality.
