When you are using a laptop you have to press and hold down the function key and hold down the dual monitor key (either F5 of F8) for about 15 full seconds. The screen of your laptop should darken and the image should come up on the tv screen.

DON'T use this TV as a monitor. There is a major factor defect. When you use the VGA connection, a short is created in the plug and it will FRY your main board and possibly the LCD control board. I just fried mine that way. I replaced my main board, but now it has no sound or picture. I either got a bad replacement, or I need the LCD controller board now too.

BE WARNED!!!!!!!!

Very low sound on Element 32 inch model no ELCHW321


A couple of possibilities, both will require repairs to the tv. Either the speakers are blown, or more likely the speaker amplifier on the main board is bad. Both are repairable if you want to spend the money. It is probably cheaper to buy a new 32" tv than to have your tv fixed.

I have a elchw321 model. I get a picture, but no sound


Please look at p11 of the manual available here
Element ELCHW321 User Manual
I don't know if this only an online reference or whther it's available as download.
If your computer has an HDMI o/p just connect that, this should supply video and audio. If not you will have to connect the aufio and video using separate leads. Note what it says about not all computer equipment being compatible with your monitor

Most late model TV can be use as a Computer monitor either via a Computer VGA input of via a HDMA input (providing your laptop has HDMA support and output). You will need the appropriate VGA or HDMA cable to connect your Laptop to your TV acting as a monitor.

I would like to use my Sylvania LC320ss8 Flat screen tv as a computer monitor but when I plug in the monitor plug the screen on the tv says format not supported. My operating system is Windows 7 and...


If you have connected the TV to the computer with a VGA cable, what resolution was your previous monitor using? You may need to change the resolution or refresh rate with your regular monitor attached. This TV has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 .

If you are connected via one of the HDMI ports, check the specifications for your TV. Then try using the VGA output. Not all TVs support a computer signal over HDMI. Unfortunately, I can't find the LC320ss8 at the Sylvania Support site: http://www.sylvaniaconsumerelectronics.com/ . If the model number has an error, click on Downloads and enter the correct model number.

I hope this helps.

No Sync message on the TV screen


Is the VGA port enabled? Have you set the computer to send data to the port? (The first may be part of the BIOS or the Device Manager. The second is in the graphics properties - right click on the desktop.) Reboot the computer to make sure it sees the new hardware with the monitor/TV on. Is the cable good? Try another one.

I hope this helps.

Flashing red ''M'' all over Screen


As you have only recently purchased the TV and it is misbehaving right in the begining, then I suggest that you return and replace it with another piece. Or another brand if possible.

No signal


Weegee, Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi for info on DVI interfaces.
