Trying to use rgb input

My viewsonic keeps coming up with no signal on all my inputs. I plug into the cable (ant) and I hear sound no (pic) and it cuts out and goes to no signal. I hook up to my computer through the rgb input it works just fine. Can I somehow use the rgb input or dvi input to play cable/dvd player? I purchased a rgb cable to rca and tried it to a dvd player but comes up no signal?

Cable TV: Connect the LCD TV to the cable with CATV and Digital cable. Preset the cable TV channels into memory with Auto Scan function when using a cable TV system. Make sure you set the INPUT SOURCE properly (TV, VGA, S-Video, etc)

Have no picture just keeps say no signal


Check the input jacks in the rear. Each should have a unique label. Pick one input that has cables connected to it. Note the input name. Follow the cables back to the device connected - DVD, BluRay, Cable / Satellite box, etc. Turn on the TV, and select the same input you noted above. Turn on the device connected to it (DVD, BluRay, Cable / Satellite box, etc.). If this fails, try again with a different device or connect the cable / satellite box to the antenna input and select ANT.

I cant keep my tv turned on after i pushed the rgb button by mistake it keeps on displaying no signal and then it goes off


Turn on the TV again. You need to change the input from RGB back to cable or HDMI or Component or whatever input you have a source for. If you don't know which one, look at the back of the TV and the wires you've got plugged into it.
If it's 1 round coaxial cable, change the input to Cable.
If it's three wires (red, white, and yellow) change the input to A/V.
If it's 5 multicolored wires, change the input to Component.
If it's an HDMI cable, change input to HDMI.
If you cannot change the input before the TV turns itself off, try unplugging the TV from the wall socket for about 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in. If its still on RGB, you're going to have to either find a way to get faster at switching inputs, or find an RGB cable and something to connect it to your TV. This is a last resort however.

I plugged in the normal 3 Video inputs and it still doesn't work.


More info is needed, please. When you say 3 video inputs, what are you referring to? I believe the Sanyo has the HDMI, RGB/YPbPr component video, S-video component, RCA composite video and Coaxial connections, though I'm not sure how many of each. So lets start with the best quality to least.

HDMI: This is one cable that provides both audio & video and produces the best picture quality. It comes in different lengths and is a wide, flat connection. A must for 1080p resolution signals.

Component video, RGB or YPbPr analog component cables: 5 separate RCA cables, 3 of which are video that separate the video signal & 2 audio cables. The 3 video cables are generally red, green and blue (RGB) or marked individually with the letters Y, Pb/Cb & Pr/Cr . The audio cables are red & white. You may see these on the back of DVD players often. They will carry a signal up to 1080i but not 1080p.

S-video component: One cable for video, it is a round connection with several pins in it and will only plug in one way. You must use 2 RCA cables for audio with this cable, red & white again.

Composite video: 3 separate cables; Red, White & Yellow. Red & White are audio, left and right while yellow is video.

And finally there is coaxial which it the cable that is identical to the cable from the pole/ cable box or your dish. It is the poorest quality.

What can happen is you are using 3 standard RCA cables and have them plugged into the component input & they will not carry the signal, or one end in component input and the other end in the composite output or vice versa. Another is that you have the wrong input selected on the menu. Check all your cables and connections, plus the input you have selected on the TV itself.

Hooking up my Sony HD Tv


Couple of items come to mind.
In the menu of the receiver, is there a way to choose video and RGB?
Set the receiver to SAT
Connect the HD Cable Box to SAT
Check the TV is on Monitor RGB.
Check the input being used by the monitor RGB cables is selected on the TV.
Have a picture? NO, receiver has issues.
Yes? Do this with each input to confirm they work.
You can reset the whole receiver to factory by holding the tone button down and holding the standby button for three seconds. (This clears your speaker setups, too.)

I moved my tv and now I am getting message No RGB signal, power will be turned off


If you had something plugged into your component jacks that's the red, green, and blue That's what RGB stands for and they are usually accompanied with another red and white set of plug ins that is the audio. Sometimes people use them for hooking up their DVD players,Cable boxes, or Satellite receivers. When you moved the TV it might have come lose. If not you can go to input or input select on your TV and change the input to what you are using Composite,HDMI,etc.I hope I helped you.

While trying to change channels, my t.v. displayed ''no signal'' and then shut itself off. Now, when I turn it on, it says no signal and turns itself off after a few seconds.


Turn the television on and as soon as the screen turns on repeatily press the input button or change the input to whatever input you are using from a source device. As long as you change it to anything other than RGB.

Your television is essentially a big computer monitor with multiple inputs and a tuner. When using your computer and shutting it down the monitor will go in a power save mode. You don't need to shut off your monitor due to this power saving mode. When you power up your computer your monitor automatically turn on.

With the VIZIO and the RGB (computer) input the television will act just like a computer monitor. When you have a computer connected it will power down automatically when you shut off your computer. When you turn your computer on the VIZIO will automatically come out of standby mode. This is through RGB only.

This is normal operation for the VIZIO but can see confusing when nothing is connected to the RGB input. If you change your television input to RGB it will sense no signal on the input and will go into standby mode after about 5 - 10 seconds. If you were to send a signal to the television through RGB it would automatically kick on.

BLANK TV


hi, what you need to do is find the source button or av button on your remote control as it sounds like its changed source this causing your problem. As you probably know your telly has many inputs for dvd vcr cable or sky but these plug into one of the inputs in the back of telly. Usually the problem is just that your on the wrong input channel like av1 instead of av2 or rgb their are many inputs so you might need to press this button 2 or 3 times till you get the right channel, i dont mean 1 to 9 channels i mean input channel like rf input or av input. This depends on what your getting the signal from if its cable and its plugged in via scart lead then it will be an av input but you might have av1 av2 av3 av4 this depends on your telly.
If your still having problems then give me a shout back ok best to check all the leads are in the telly correct as this will cause the problem your having ok.
Let me know how you get on ok or if you need further help
