RGB Not Available

Hi. I have a Vivitek 51" projection HDTV. When I hookup my Xbox 360 to the RGB/VGA port and select the RGB input, the screen reads "UNAVAILABLE". If I hook the Xbox 360 to a flat screen VGA monitor, there is no problem. Is there someway I need to set the TV up to accept the VGA signal from the Xbox 360?

I'm fairly sure that the 2hdw board is the culprit here. The 2hdw pwb is Mitsubishi original p/n# 935c966001 which has since been substituted to p/n#935c966002 and costs roughly $420.00 dollars plus shipping.
It's a common failure in these units, but it's not a difficult repair for a reputable shop..
Another alternative is to have ashop pull that board and send it in to PTS Electronics for rebuild. That might save about $100.00 dollars.
Please don't rate me badly for the bad news.
Good Luck!

Simplest thing would be that your component cables are not HU'd correctly. Having them reversed would do this.

SOURCE: Samsung LCD TV not receiving PC signal


This Samsung LA40C350 TV requires all pins are connected from D15 D15 VGA cable
Some cables what they sell in market dont have all wires connected. Only RGB, Grounds and Horizontal and Vertical sync but missing other connections
Samsung uses those other pins detect if PC is connected or not.

Next time you buy VGA cable, take multimeter with you and check that all pinns are connected through, before buying cable.

How can I fix my television?

One thing to look for is overheating. Is the TV shrouded and hot to the touch? This is the symptom for overheating but it could be other problems too, such as a broken intermittent connection and also a bad or failing electronic part in the video channel. In any case, quite likely not user fixable.

But 1st check the obvious. Did you make any changes to inputs, hookups or position of TV? Are any inputs lose or bent (TV set top box, DVD, etc). IE, make sure it is the TV and not an input. Try an external input (from DVD etc) and see if that works the same.

If the TV works with an external DVD on any other input (HDMI, RGB, VGA etc) you may ba able to just swap around inputs to bypass the bad input channel.

Vga input to my mitsubishi Medallion hdtv 1080 doesn't work

You can't just plug in the input and expect it to work. You have to bring up the input selection screen on the TV first and select that specific input. Read the manual to see how to select different inputs and you should be fine.

The Xbox 360 connects to a TV using either

- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio

- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)


So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.

Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).

Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.

This should make the Xbox work.

When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.

Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form

How do i hook my XBOX-360 up to this tv and get 1080i resolution? Thanks, Mike

You should be able to get 1080i with the Input/DVI port or the component video in ports of the TV. I believe the easiest option will be to set the XBox A/V switch to HDTV and use a component video cable (red, green, blue) from the XBox component out to the TV Component In. (with the audio out going to your TV or speaker system). Turn on the X-box and the My Xbox > System Settings. Then Console Settings > Display and chose the 1080i.

Set the TV Net Command (remote) and the Device settings for the input jack in use (component 1/2). Adjust the A/V menu for the Display before playing long.

Wen you change inputs, you will see a status screen for the settings for the TV input.

I hope this helps.

Computer to HDMI outlet of Hitachi HDTV rear projector

The TV should be pretty simple. It is generally going to be HDMI 1, 2 or 3. If the TV won't tune to one then it doesn't detect a signal on that port. More likely, there is a setting either in your Graphic Adapter software or in Windows to output to this port. Windows doesn't turn anything but the RGB port on by default.
