Re: tv want show

Look at the back of your TV.  Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)

Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs.  Wait one second between pushes.  You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen.  It should show a number, for the current channel number.

If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4.  If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one.  If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active).  Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.

Have blank screen with sound. Flashlight test shows writing etc. Says cable not hooked up when it is. When HDMI cable is hooked up it shows up.


I hope I can help with this. It could be either the colored cables are not positioned correctly (they should all be on the same row) or it is on the incorrect TV Input. This can happen when we have other devices connected to the TV such as CAble box, gaming console (xbox, ps4,wii), dvd player, etc. The fact that you said the HDMI cable works fine and shows picture, it tells me it has to do with those colored cables.

I am trying to hook up my Dell inspiron 1520 to my viewsonic n2750w tv. Is there an easy way to do this?

Yes there is... You are going to need a VGA cable and an 1/8 audio cable (for sound) - On page 29 it shows a picture of the right side of your computer. You will hook the VGA cable to the VGA port (Number 8 on the diagram).
The on your tv you will hook it up to the vga port as well. Page 7 of the following document shows a pictures of the back of your tv. You will hook it up to "L" on the diagram. Be careful to not bend the pins in the connector.
Switch your tv over to the PC input by clicking the "Input" button. Then make sure your PC is sending a signal, you might have to hit the function key to switch the view.

My tv's picture does not cover the entire size of the tv. The picture that shows is the size of a square and my television is a rectangular size. How do I widen the picture?

there should be a button on your remote that adjusts the picture to fit your screen. They have that on most tv's. Are you using a cable box? your cable box also has settings depending on what your using. 1080i, 720p? does it do the same thing with a dvd player or game console hooked up?

Trying to hook up my panasonic tc-p50c2 to comcast hd digital cable box and cant get it to work with hdmi cord..nothing is showing

Use only the hdmi cord to hook it up and go to menu on the tv and select hdmi for hook up and you should get a picture. Make sure your cable cord is the only cord running to the cable box , you don't need any other cord.
