Sceptre TV Displaying out of Range.

Oh man,

So i hooked up my 360 to the component cable on my TV and now it displays "out of range" message on my screen. Funny thing is it does that now on both inputs for both my xbox and now my cable box! They are both set to 1080i.

more specs on the TV: http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11218948&whse=BC&topnav=&browse=&lang=en-US&s=1


Please help!

    same problem with a LG monitor connect to Rogers cable box

    I have a 32" Sceptre LCD that says the same thing when I try to use my 360. The weird thing is that it's never done this before. It has always worked fine for me. It started intermittently and now seems to be constant.

I had the problem on my friends tv.
Switch the cable for the component cables to regular TV rather than HDTV, then start the XBOX
Go all the way to the right blade, and go into display settings. For HD resolution, (don't worry if it warns you you're not in HDTV setting) select 720p, then before it switches back to regular TV settings, go to the cable on the XBOX and switch it to HDTV, and select "Yes, I want to keep this setting." It'll start displaying it right. It's sooo much faster and clearer this way.
I found out it was because the component was set to 1080 setting which I suppose is out of the range of the TV.

My sceptre lcd tv is displaying really bright pink and green colors


I had a similar problem with blacks showing up as green. Turning up the brightness a bit fixed it for me. Not a permanent fix, but something to try if you want to make it last a bit longer until you can get a new one or fix it.

"Out of range" means that the picture displayed by the laptop cannot be displayed by the TV, either because the resolution is not supported or the refresh rate is not supported.

Sometimes, I've had to set the refresh rate (from the laptop Display settings) to 59Hz to get it to work as opposed to the default 60Hz.

What resolution does your TV support? What resolution does the laptop support?

Matching these as closely as possible and you'll get the picture on the TV screen.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes,

I just hooked up my Flat TV to my Panasonic VHS-DVD recorder player and the screen only shows blurry Black and White when displaying or recording, The TV itself is fine.


Sounds as if you hooked up your player wrong. If you are using a composite hook up. You should have a yellow, red and white cable. Make sure it gets hooked into the same on the TV. If it is a component connection, then RED, Green and Blue. It sounds like you have your Yellow composite going through your Green component. If by chance your TV is a new Sony, then you might have to go into the user menu and turn component off and composite on.

A new cable box was connected to my 32" Proscan LCD TV. Now everytime I turn on the television I see the message "HDMI-1 No program information available" I contacted the cable company and...


I know this may be a dumb question but I have to ask because even though the cable company has HD boxes a lot of them still dont have HDMI outputs instead they use the 5 Component cable (red,blue,green,for video and white, red for audio). Not only that most of the cable guys are not the brightest in the world I work in an electronics store for 13 years and cant tell you how many times I went to someone house and it was hooked up wrong. Are you stuck on HDMI-1 or can u chnge the channel by using the tv/video button it may say input as well. Check how its hooked up easy to tell 1 cable HDMI, 5 cables -Component. If it is HDMI check the other hdmi input as most LCD tvs have at least 2. same for component it will say component on screen

Hi...I'm trying to connect my PC to my Sceptre TV but I keep getting an "Out of Range" message. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!


You have your screen resolution is set too high, try a lower one to start say, 640x480 32bit, or 800x600 32bit. Also ensure you have enabled the TV/Monitor & set for Mirrored or spanned desktop? Always plug in the TV and then turn on the laptop.

Screen says out of range


I would say that the computer is trying to use a display resolution that the monitor is incapable of displaying. You may have to lower the resolution from the PC before you get a picture. Make sure you install the correct drivers for the monitor onto the new computer and use a different monitor to adjust the display resolution to a level that the monitor is capable of displaying.

Volume too loud


Very likely the volume setting on your cable is set too high. The cable volume is separate from the TV volume. Once you lower the cable volume, then you can adjust your TV volume to find a happy medium that gives you more range between numbers. Have you already tried this?
