TV set shuts off after plugging in VGA cable

I just bought a VGA cable to deliver the picture from my Xbox 360 in a higher resolution than the component cable will allow. However, when I plug in the cable to the 15-pin RGB port on the back panel, the television power just cuts out.

It doesn't matter what input channel the set is tuned to, the tv powers off as soon as the connection is made, and I cannot turn it back on until the cable is removed. The first time I plugged it in only the picture cut out, with subsequent attempts to connect the cable resulting in loss of power.

I don't think it has anything to do with the Xbox being set to progressive or standard scan modes, since the power to the TV is out even before the Xbox is turned on. I've never utilized the RGB port before, so I have no precedent for dealing with problems of this sort.

On an unrelated problem, this TV is supposed to support both 480p and 1080i HD formats from the Xbox 360, however, when I switch the Xbox from 480 to 1080 the display intermittently turns on and off. This happens using the component cables, which was my reason for buying the VGA cable - I thought since it wasn't supporting fully the 1080 format via the component cable, it would with the VGA cable. Any thoughts on either or both of these problems?

I recently bought an Xbox 360 and plugged it into the back of my TV. However, the TV refuses to show anything from the Xbox 360. I tried Autoprogramming it, and it erased all of my channels except for 1,...

MOST of their older sets are set up where the AV inputs are channels 90-93 ; if you had no signal other than the game the set will skip all those channels out.

If you have a working remote for it direct enter 90-93 one at a time .

Nothing hooked to cable fitting means set will see no signal and skip them out when auto program is engaged.

DVI port on Sony Trinitron KV-32HS500 not standard.What fits it?

I've just recently connected my old 32" Sony KV-32HS510 to my HP G60 Laptop via an HDMI (laptop) to DVI HDTV port(TV) with a cable.

I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop with the nVidia software. Once I've plugged in the TV to the HDMI port, the software initializes (recognizes the TV) and then I can select it as my second 'monitor' in the nVidia control panel.

I found I had to tinker with the resolution settings in the nVidia program to find an optimal resolution where the sides of the screen weren't 'cut off' by the TV.. I finally ended up with the resolution 1152x768 (I believe). It might be different for everybody, as I'm told Vista might do things differently than XP... But you should be able to tinker with the resolution settings and adjust the screen size...

(hope this helps with the second post - above)

Game mode on tv

If you have a HDTV then you need to change the resolution to 720i or 720p to support the XBox 360 HD video. If you have a standard TV (non-HD) then you'll need to change your XBox 360's video settings to non-HD. The problem sounds like your mixing up HD video signal. I really need more info about your TV. Is it HD? Or regular?

YPbPr inputs not working

Tacz, What video input# on the back of the TV is your component video?? Are you sure the TV is set to look at that video input#??? You may be looking at one of the composite video inputs as far as the TV is concerned and with nothing plugged in to that input the TV would naturally give the error message you indicated. Let me know.. Bill
