Ok, you just cannot plug in the PC to the TV and it just works...You have to First install the correct "Drivers" for your PC's Video card, on the PC. Then using the correct cables connect up the PC to the TV, now you must select the Correct EXTERNAL INPUT on the TV, prior to all this you will have set up the Windows "Desktop" and "Activate" the "Other" the TV's screen, so it will operate, as until, this is done, it will not "Detect" the TV, as a monitor.I have written you a tutorial of what you need to do.. below.
At the rear or side of the PC there should be either or both of a 15 Pin DIN Plug, HDMI socket. or a Yellow RCA or 4 -7 pin DIN. Now IF these are present then YES you can connect to a TV. Now some TV's have a connector a DB15 MALE, so that the cable from the PC to the TV, is DB15. this plugs in directly, with appropriate DB15 cable. This, however, will ONLY take the VIDEO to the TV, Audio is delivered via the "Audio Out" Jack on PC, and Plugged into the AV Sockets on the TV, with a dual cored coaxial cable, they are Red & White. Some PC's also have a Yellow RCA Connector, OR a 4 -7 Pin DIN Socket, that requires a Special Adapter Cable (That generally came with the unit, and are colored and marked as to output) to use, for Video/Audio Out to TV. This signal is Composite or SVHS Video & Stereo Out. This connects up TO the TV's Composite/SVHS input Jacks and the Red & White Audio IN, RCA Jacks, &/or DIN SVHS socket. Also we have "Component Video" marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" these simply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, & Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL only Video. With this method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio, Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit
First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get the adapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correct TV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you need to "Enable" that Monitors, the TV's, Desktop. You need to set either a "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "Display Settings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/output display settings. Adjust the screens resolution via the resoloution "Slider", it is best to start with, 800x600 32 bit color. or even lower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution, your TV can handle, find out from manual. Once it is all connected up. It should all just work great. Now, from then on, &, to get it to work every-time, the process is. Turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON. Then, startup the PC up. It should "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor & One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop appear after a bit. Now you have screen 1 & screens 2. Now, if you are using "Cloned" mode, then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed on the TV. If you used Spanned, mode, in this mode, however, you will have to."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, you have one "Big Desktop". Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of those have thier OWN, Control Panel, this, all then can make it all a lot easier to do it. So I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, or just want to do it by hand, then the the "By Hand" method is the only way.There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control over dual displays, and is well worth installing.
below is a user manual, use this to help set your TV up. http://www.retrevo.com/support/Westinghouse-LTV-27w7-HD-TVs-manual/id/278dj978/t/2/
Also there is a sequence, to startup as well, always do it like this... First Run & connect All cables, then turn on the TV, and select the appropriate EXTERNAL Input. Then turn OFF, Now turn on laptop, and ensure the setup the desktop TV settings, are all still OK, then, turn the TV ON, reboot PC, now at next desktop you should see you "Extended Display" or "Cloned desktop" whichever you have set. You can now play movies use programs whatever, remember you resolution though.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal!

If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in.

Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Using a VGA cable to your Westinghouse LV-27, set the display of the computer's output to 1360X768 @ 60Hz this is your tv's natural resolution.

If the res was set too high, the tv would not recognize or display the signal.

As far as your cable TV problem goes, it sounds like the signal input connection or processing chips are not in good condition. If you bought this new, I would return it. If returning it is not an option, then I recommend you switch your tv signal cable from HDMI to component or vice versa, and see if you can get a good workaround that way.

I hope that helps.

How do I convert a Westinghouse 22" LCM-22w3 DVI/VGA LCD Monitor into an HDTV?


Dear Amy,

Normally, monitors do not have tuning electronics for capturing TV signals.
Therefore, consider the monitor as a "dumb" unit that only displays information coming from your computer. Also, this unit does not have a HDMI input, but only VGA.
So, you are fated to have this monitor connected to your computer, always.
Now, you may find good software that will "tune" the TV signals from streaming at the Internet and show whatever is being broadcast. The same way you can access YouTube and watch videos these TV tuners will get the streaming signals the TV stations send via Internet (not all do that) and watch the channel in your PC/monitor
Since I do not have additional information about the computer you use I cannot give you other ideas
I hope I have helped you.

How do i hook it up to my computer without a remote


"How do I hook up my computer without a remote?"

Two possibilities come to mind:

1. With a VGA (15 pin), HDMI, or DVI connected computer there should be a keyboard key combination (typically a Function button (Fn ) and one of the F1 thru F12 keys) that will activate the option for switching the video signal to the external monitor/TV, or in the case of a laptop, viewing the image on both screens. The TV's "INPUT" button, if there is one, will need to be pushed several times to cycle through the available input signals until the computer video signal input is seen.

2, Alternately, if there is no "INPUT" button, it may be possible to purchase an inexpensive universal remote (ones seen even at a local $1 Store) in able to access the TV menu. The remote will have programming instructions and codes for most major TV brands, and an Internet search, or the TV manufacturer, should provide for additional codes for your specific TV model if necessary.

Kindly post a reply if either of these options do work for you.

TV won't recognize signal from a DVI to HDMI input adapter


I had a similar problem with a Mac Mini.  The problem was caused by a mix-matched resolution (the Mac tries to use 75Hz refresh rate, TV expects 60Hz).  The best solution I found was to remote into the Mac (I used LogMeIn.com) and change the resolution on the Mac from a remote computer until the image appears on screen.
Process: 1) Connect Mac to a normal monitor and install the LogMeIn server (or other VNC type application) 2) Connect the Mac to the TV 3) Connect to LogMeIn from another computer (preferrably one where you can see the TV) 4) Go to Applications / System Preferences / Display 5) Change the resolution to your TVs native resolution, and change the refresh rate to 60Hz
