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.

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.

I just purchased a new RCA 32 inch w/ DVD. When starting up it asks if you will use Cable or Air. I have Dish Satellite and picked air. I only get one channel and if I try to go up or down channels I get a...


You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.

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.

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?

New Sceptre 37" LCD TV does not turn on


I just got a 42" komodo by Sceptre, same problem, except "SCEPTRE" showed on the screen. I was sent a USB key program to insert in the service slot in the back and it reflashes the bios. This is old news for you but maybe new for someone?
