Question about KWorld PCTV CONVERTER KW-PCTV-1600 RT (KWPCTV1600)
I only get color bars. I've tried it on 2 TVs and with the yellow Video out only and with the component video -- switching to the correct output settings.
Thanks for your help.
I had the same problem. It turned out the issue was that I had the VGA Y-cable connectors between the PC and the KWorld box reversed. They look like they should be interchangeable, but they are not. A closer look at the cable connectors shows that one is marked "PC", one is marked "Monitor", and the 3rd is marked "SCAN CNVTR". Once I got them plugged into the right places, I got the screen image on the TV.

Make sure the cables are the right way round as they can be connected 2 ways, 1 works the other doesnt, also check monitor refresh rates and resoultion

I just bought Panasonic Plasma TV (TCP42S1) having HDMI inputs and wanted to hook it to my Toshiba laptop who is having VGA output. I bought HDMI-VGA RCA cable from market, but the moment i hooked up, it shows no display, only black screen. Anyone please help me to get rid of this problem! Thanks

You need to switch your laptop monitor to an external monitor using the Fn + F5 keys or similar -see your laptop manual. This will send the VGA signal to the HD-15 VGA connector going to the converter.
The instructions that come with the unit doesn't address this.

I was able to get mine working by setting my refresh rate to 75. Resolution is still high, and it's working!

The cable that comes with it needs to be connected with the monitor plug on the pc2tv end. There must be a cross over in the cable, since all I get with it reversed in the color bars. With a wide screen laptop, I couldn't even get color bars until I switched the video resolution to one that was accepted by the converter box - wouldn't sync.

I just posted about the same kind of problem - all of our connections were correct, but only got the colored bars. After searching some more on the web I found a video that shows how to convert pc to tv, and it said to re-boot the computer then answer the monitor questions - choose monitor #2.
That did it!!!! Yea!!! I hope this helps someone else!!!

This piece of hardware can send pal and ntsc signals try switching to the signal that matches your tv.

You probably have your computer set at a pretty high output resolution. You'll have to lower your display resolution down to the lower settings, like 800x600. We had the same problem trying to hook up to a big, brand new plasma tv, and this did the trick.
