I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in watching programs on the TV. Since the screen says RGB, it appears that you've selected input as RGB(VGA, also known as PC input). If you have nothing connected to PC input (RGB), please change the input to HDMI or component or what ever it is by using the input button on the Remote of the TV.
In some TVs INPUT Button is labeled as TV/Video. Press it repeatedly to change the input from one to next.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.
i imagine your problem is over by now one way or another, but for anyone else experiencing this problem, thought i would share. your rgb input is tripped and needs to be reset, there are multiple things that "may" fix this, but the sure fire method is to connect a laptop to the rgb input, make sure you change your display settings on the laptop to "external monitor" and change the monitor selected in display settings on your computer. When the TV recieves a signal (which is what it is wating on and why it is frozen) it will then allow you to change input and will not turn off. Make sure your computer is running and all display settings are set before turning on tv so it does not time out and shut off before you can get it to pick up the signal
Turn the television on and as soon as the screen turns on repeatily press the input button or change the input to whatever input you are using from a source device. As long as you change it to anything other than RGB.
Your television is essentially a big computer monitor with multiple inputs and a tuner. When using your computer and shutting it down the monitor will go in a power save mode. You don't need to shut off your monitor due to this power saving mode. When you power up your computer your monitor automatically turn on.
With the VIZIO and the RGB (computer) input the television will act just like a computer monitor. When you have a computer connected it will power down automatically when you shut off your computer. When you turn your computer on the VIZIO will automatically come out of standby mode. This is through RGB only.
This is normal operation for the VIZIO but can see confusing when nothing is connected to the RGB input. If you change your television input to RGB it will sense no signal on the input and will go into standby mode after about 5 - 10 seconds. If you were to send a signal to the television through RGB it would automatically kick on.
For No signal try- Updating your Video drivers, and making sure it shows a connection on your laptop ( by going to propertys on desktop and then dysplay)
For format try- Updating and or turning down the screen resulotion becuase the size differs on screen even if you think it shouldnt.
You need to change the input signal, get into the menu on your monitor and change the signal from rgb to dvi, hdmi or vga dipending on what cable you using for connection.
There is NO rgb connector on that monitor
Neichi could this monitor be set to receive dvi signals and not rgb even if he has the rgb hooked into the monitor? so in menu select rgb input?
Mitch, monitors don't conflict with windows generally usually they(windows os) will install a basic generic driver to run the monitor, and you should do this when changing monitors before you hook up the new one, your description really lacks any concrete description where are the "black and blue errors" what do they look like last I have had problems with modems interfering with video so I would remove the modem and see if the problem goes away.
