This TV has 3 HDMI inputs (digital) but no VGA input (analog). Therefor you can not use a 15 pin VGA to VGA cable. Your computer needs to have a DVI output. You may need to get another video card with DVI. You can then get a DVI to HDMI converter and then use an HDMI cable. You will need to use the HDMI 1 port for video and a separate audio cable from the computer audio output (usually green 1/8 inch jack) to the TV audio input (white and red RCA jacks).

Picture on tv keeps going out and coming on

If the previous posts didn't fix youru problem, and I doubt they did, then you most likely have a weak CRT and the video is being muted. you can sometimes tell if that's the problem by turning up the screen voltage slightly to see if the picture comes back on. If it does, then the CRT is weak. This is a very common issue with Sony CRT TVs, and can sometimes be rejuvenated by a good shop for fairly cheap.

Loewe 30" tv turns on, message "no signal"

first thing I would do is to make sure your cable box is turned on. if not fixed, make sure you have the correct input. this can be done by viewing all the inputs that the tv has by pressing the input button on your remote until you find a picture. if it is still not working, make sure you have you cable run right. there should be one cable running to the cable box and into the port labeled antenna or input, then anouther labed cable running from the output port to the tv. there might also be a vcr or dvd play inbetween. if that is the case, the cabel running from the cable box should go to the input of the vcr or dvd play and the output line should go to the tv. any equipment inbetween the cable box and tv should be turned on when viewing you cabel tv. you will also have to make sure that any equipment inbetween is running off the cabel input.
