Re: connecting PC to TV


You have to activate the external/dual monitor feature of your PC.  If it's a laptop, it's Fn + F? key and if your PC is a desktop you have to go to the Display Properties, Settings tab, Advance button.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My lg tv does not recognise antenna socket/signal.

Check 2 items before going any further:
-- Make sure you have a good antenna signal by connecting it to another tv set.
-- Make sure you've switched input source of your tv to RF Antennae.
If the steps above didn't help your problem in TV tuner (assuming you're getting signal from other sources, i.e. DVD, VCR, etc). Have the unit serviced.

The power button is flashing, but won't power up.

Based on you description, it sounds like you're not getting any video signal. Check the cables connected to your TV and make sure that there is a signal getting to the TV. Plug the TV into another video source (DVD player, game station, etc) and see if it's just that channel. Troubleshoot by connecting devices to the different inputs.

I have done an autotune on my sony bravia tv but am not getting channel 9 sbs. the television in the bedroom is a smaller digital tv and that picks up all the channels. the two tv's are connected

Is the splitter an amplified splitter or not? Have you tried the channel search when you connect the antenna directly to the TV? (Disconnect the cables from the splitter and use a coupler to join them together.) Tuners do vary in their sensitivity. For digital signals, your TV should report the signal strength. This is often under the Settings sub-menu. Some TVs will give this information in the Channel Edit option.

If the straight through connection gives a better signal, check your antenna direction and try a different splitter. Amplification will often help; however, when my amplified splitter was damaged the less sensitive tuner lost a number of channels that the other TV received. (Looking at the signal strength, one TV was getting adequate signal with one bar out of 8. The other needed at least 4 bars to process the signal.)

I hope this helps.

I have A three year old AKAI 42 inch plasma tv---PDP4273M1---Mostly used as PC monitor. It was working just fine when I turned it off. When turned back on the next day, the on indicator light came on and...

Check to see what input setting the tv is on. It could still be looking for a signal from the pc input connection and no pc is hooked up thus getting no signal. Have the device you are trying to display on the tv connected and turned on and cycle through the inputs on the tv until you get a signal.

We cant get a signal on the tv and it wont work

If the tv powers on correctly, then recheck all wire connections (including ac cord) are in proper placement and fit. Make sure the DVD is working properly and is connected properly to the tv. Visit the tv menu and check all settings for input signal. Be sure to have the correct "input source" set on your tv.

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.

Samsung 40" lcd - Connecting to PC saying 'MODE NOT SUPPORTED'

First of all, check that the TV is set on PC input when you use PC video input at the back.

Then you may also need to go to video and display properties>>settings, from control panel (personalize on Vista).

There lower down resolution and ensure that frequency is set the same as tv.

Laptop to samsung tele

  1. Ensure that the connection is a direct cable connection from the PC to the TV, no converters or cable adapters as these are generally not Bi-directional which is required for a PC to see a TV.
  2. Try turning on the TV, then booting the computer. Some devices require the initialization signal from the computer to activate the port on the TV.
  3. See if the TV input select has an option to search for active signals.
IF none of that helps, post the exact model of TV and computer as well as the type of cable connection you are using.

The biggest stopper most of the time is a cable converter.
