Question about Televison & Video
I bought a proscan 37" plcd3717A. Please keep in mind that I am a 6o yr. old woman with very little knowledge of electronics. My problem is I can't get it hooked up! There are 14 "holes" and I have 5 plugs! All I want is to hook it up to my PVR! All I get is a "no signal" on a blue screen! HELP!!
Newer tvs have a lot of input connections ( holes) and can be very confusing. With out knowing what kind of plugs you have I will try to help as best I can. First ,if you have a coax cable hook it to the corresponding connector. The coax is a pencil sized cable that has a center wire and a threaded nut. It will screw onto the threaded connector on the back of the tv. If you have RCA cables these will be color coded yellow for video red and white for audio plug these into the corresponding connectors. There may be more than one set of these connectors and may be marked input1 or input2 etc.make sure to write down which input you plug these into.you may also have colorstream cables there are three green red and blue. Some of the newer tvs don't have inputs for these but if yours does plug them into the corresponding colors. Another cable you may have is a s-video cable this is a single cable that has a multi pin connector on each end. Again find the corresponding connector and plug this cable in. The newer cable is called a hdmi cable and is a cable with a rectangular end. This one cable takes the place of the multi-pin s- video cable or the RCA cables. It also replaces the colorstream cables. If you were able to connect all your cables up. Turn on the tv. You may get a blue screen that says no signal. Don't panic take the remote and find the input button. Pressing the input button changes the tv to the various sets of inputs on the back on the tv. Press the input button several times waiting in between each press of the button for several seconds untill you find the input you connected your cables to. If your connecting a vcr make sure you have a video playing so there will be a signal for the tv to find. I'm not sure what a PVR is, but make sure it is playing some thing when you scroll through the inputs on the tv with the remote. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Proscan 26LB30Q Vs PS2 = HELP
The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.
The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections

I had same problem, adjust settings on your computer desktop resolution to 800x600 solved my problem right away, computer resolution is probably too high. Hope this helps!

Sounds like your resolution on your computer is set too high for your tv to accept. Try putting your computer resolution down to 1024x768 or lower and see if that works.
