If it is a desktop (tower) the video signal from the computer goes into a cable which is connected to the monitor. There are two types, one being a VGA type, the other being a digital type. Look these up on Google, images, to find which type you have. If it is a laptop, there may be a connection for an external monitor, usually a VGA plug.
Philips Magnavox MS3652S will only connect to a computer with a converter (except if you have a video card that outputs to a TV compatible mode). You need a VGA to composite video (or S-video) converter. http://www.svideo.com/vgatotv.html for a few of the converters.
It sounds like an HDMI lead has standard video on it or the output from a digital unit is not the correct specification for your TV. Check the instruction booklet for recomended signal sources and then check your DVD, Video, Computer for the right type of signals to be outputed to your TV. Hope this helps.
On most modern receivers you must select which signal type you want it to process.
for example on my Denon, I have to go into the on screen menu and select the input I want ie: video 1.Then tell it which signal I want it to use ie: s-video, component or HDMI input for video and then which input corresponds to the audio signal for that component ie: analog, digital, optical or hdmi.
Its complicated and a pain in the ****
Hopefully that helps call Yamaha they will usually walk you through the process while on the phone.
I have this same machine, you did'nt mention what input you are using (composite, S-Video, component or HDMI) or what type of display you have (CRT, LCD, Plasma etc.).
If your T.V. has a HDMI input I recommend using that, if not and it's of fairly recent vintage use the component inputs (not to be confused with composite video inputs, or yellow RCA-type input).or at the very least use the S-Video input.
In the setup menu (on screen) try setting the "TV Screen" option to the 480p setting and if you are using the HDMI input try setting that to the highest resolution your T.V. has or set it to "Auto"
Finally in the on screen video menu select the "Video" setting and set the "Still Mode" option to automatic, and the "Output Level" to lighter or darker whatever your preference is.
Remember...Always use HDMI or component video inputs on your television (if it has those inputs)!
Hope this helps!
