Blue screen in RGB2 & VGA input modes...

When I change input modes to RGB2 to watch a DVD I now get a blue screen ( I can still see the picture but all colour has gone except Blue). I've also noticed the same If I hook up my PC and use VGA.
The other modes are fine, this just happened without me changing any menu options etc.

Sounds like a defective tv.

First try a different set of cables, if the problem persists, then contact Acer

Acer Contact Information Main support number 408.432.6200 or 1.800.733.2237

This same thing has happened to other LCD tvs if it is not the cables which it sounds like it isn't, though I have not seen this model do it before

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else

Have a good day

When tv is turned on, screen shows white w/ blue logo, then shows "VGA" and "no signal" on a blue screen. After a minute it turns off. We cannot get a picture. We have a Time Warner...


Right now the TV is set to accept the video signal from PC through the VGA port so when it does not see the video signal from the VGA port, the TV will go into shutdown or standby mode. You need to change the input to be where the cable box is connected to using INPUT or SOURCE button on the remote.
What kind of connection are you using to make the connection between the TV and the cable box?
Please clarify. Make and model of the TV?

Blue screen that says RGB on my vizio


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in watching programs on the TV. Since the screen says RGB, it appears that you've selected input as RGB(VGA, also known as PC input). If you have nothing connected to PC input (RGB), please change the input to HDMI or component or what ever it is by using the input button on the Remote of the TV.

In some TVs INPUT Button is labeled as TV/Video. Press it repeatedly to change the input from one to next.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

I dont have cable.i was using this tv just to play dvds and i accidentally hit channel search. now i get a blue screen that says" plerase connect cable system or an antenna to the terminal on the back...


Hi:
Using remote locate a button called tv/video or Input, turn on the DVD player and hit this button until you see your DVD player Logo. Most dvd players use either video 1 or 2, or componet or HDMI outputs. Seems you have changed the TV's input back to TV mode and you need to change it to a video mode input.

Can i hook up my 32 in emerson to my computer for netflix


Yes you can . Do the instructions below and then just download the Netflix movie like you would if you where to watch it on your PC. After all connections you should be able to watch it on your Tv screen, Enjoy.
Things You'll Need:
VGA to VGA cable

DVI to VGA adapter (as needed)

How to Connect a Computer to an Emerson TV

1
Purchase a VGA cable and a DVI to VGA converter (if needed). The VGA cable is a cable with blue attachments on either end that contains a total of 15 pins (arranged in a 5x3 lineup). You will only need the VGA to DVI adapter if your computer does not have a blue VGA connector on the back.
2
Attach the VGA cable to the VGA port on the back of your computer (going through the DVI to VGA adapter if necessary). When screwing the connector in, alternate between the two sides periodically. Tighten one side of the connector a little, then tighten the other side of the connector to match. This will ensure a tight connection and an optimal picture.
3
Attach the VGA cable to the back of your Emerson television, utilizing the same alternating tightening method that you used to secure the cable to your computer.
4
Use the menu button on the Emerson TV to select a new "source." Choose "VGA" input, then confirm that by pressing the OK button (normally the volume+ button on most televisions). The television should immediately switch to display the computer's output. If it takes you to a blue screen instead, simply restart the computer in order to reset the connection.

How do i connect my tv to my notebook computer


You get a VGA cable from a local electronics or computer store and connect the laptop vga external monitor port *(its the 15 pin D shaped blue port) to your TV's VGA input *(also a 15 D shaped port).

Then, when you want to watch your computer on your tv. Change your TV input to computer and toggle the laptops video output *(usually by pressing the laptops FN key and one of the function keys that has a picture of a monitor on it simultaneously).

That should do it. And, if you want the picture on both displays the FN feature normally gives you that option if you press the buttons again.

Good luck and enjoy!

The color on the screen is green when I watch movies. How do I fix this problem?


Good day sir, your inquiry about the green lcd screen can be caused by several things. 1. The monitor/tv produces 3 colors, red green and blue, the tv mixes these three colors to produce the picture. a loss of red and blue produces this green screen. so check the cable, specially the red and blue jack of the component inputs, and the red and blue cable. 2. there may be loose contact on the signal cable. try using the video input instead of the component input. 3. the dvd player may have the problem, check the player component out jack. a loose jack port can cause these problem. hope this may help. thanks

Only see a blue screen ...


Hi, The bluescreen is an indicator of "lack or absence of a video signal". In TV mode this would only come on if your reception quality is so poor that the TV "thinks" there is more interference/noise than intelligent video signal nd therefore mutes the video. In all other modes, (S Video, A/V Video etc), again, this muting action will result in the bluescreen if the TV "thinks" it is not receiving any video input. To try and fix this would either be: 1. Check and verify that you have a video signal coming into the TV by trying your video source (DVD, cable box) into another TV unit; or 2. Check and verify that your connectors at the back of the TV and the source are properly connected and are snug/fitted properly. If both fails, it is possible that you have component failure inside the TV and that would require the services of a qualified TV professional. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
