Skyworth 32l01hm display problem

My 32l01hm (32'' lcd) which i use as a monitor for my pc using an hdmi cable seems to distort its display.... i think the problem is in the tv itself... its blue and white sometimes inverts(blue turns white and vice versa).. what could the problem be? voltage? room temperature? or is something broken inside?

SOURCE: Mintek LCD TV DTV-320-D buttons does not work

I have the same problems w/ my mintek 37 inch lcd and I have cut it off for days hoping that this will jumpstart it back to the tv mode so that we can at least get the enjoyment of watching it. The only thing it does is cut off/on the power. No other buttons work. I have called Mintek in CA and they offered no solutions except to mail the tv back.

SOURCE: Samsung LCD tv - Turns on and off by itself.

Not sure if this is the same problem, but I just moved and set up my Samsung 40" LCD and it has been going off and on by itself with the worst yesterday every 2-3 minutes. After speaking with a friend of mine who is not in the Tv business but just has good common sense, I determined it was likely a bad power strip. The bottom line is I replaced the crappy power strip (which was fully loaded with all 6 outlets in use) with the higher quality one I had in the other room. The problem is gone. I suspect the power strip was failing or real bad quality........try plugging the tv directly into the wall outlet first. hope this helped.

SOURCE: Philips 52'' LCD HDTV. Has PC Input Issue.

My sony lcd works fantastic with my ATI video card; the 1080 looks superb.
I use the DVI to HDMI converter on the PC as well.
I wasn't able to get audio from the PC to the AV receiver via HDMI, but apparently my pc's internal audio chipset has a component that conflicts with ATI's HDMI Audio Out drivers. Still, I do get the Dolby Digital through digital PCM cable though, - but I digress.

I have read all your comments, and would have suggested you have a bad DVI/HDMI converter, except you said that it works in safe mode, which means that everything can work - the configuration just needs tweaking.

My first gut reaction is that you might review your ati catalyst settings, (and eventually your resolution settings and refresh rate. Unplug your connection from the computer to the TV. Load up your Catalyst Control Center, and get yourself out of the dumbed down options into 'Advanced View'. Plug your TV in. Does Catalyst detect it? Does your windows device manager detect it as a display? Catalyst ought to see it as an 'attached display currently disabled.' If so, drag it from the 'disabled' area to the 'Desktop 2' area. You will need to decide if you'll be running this display as a second screen (extended desktop) or a clone of your pc's monitor.

To spur Catalyst along with finding your TV, there is a Detect Display button under the representation of the two screens (labeled 1 & 2). Additionally, you may need to right click on the the #2 monitor icon and select 'Enable'.

I'd like to help solve your home theater issues, so let me know your results from these steps, and I will take your further down the troubleshooting path as required.

I hope that helps.

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

We have a panasonic 32"inch lcd tv.we want to


hdmi Ports Qty 3 port(s) PC Interface VGA (HD-15) HDCP Compatible Yes

I read your tv has 3 hdmi ports and a PC input.

if your pc has hdmi out - the you use a hdmi cable from the pc to the tv on one of the hdmi inputs.

if your pc has a 15pin vga cable you can unplug from your PC monitor (or go buy a VGA cable if you want to keep one on the tv and one on your pc monitor - or if you are using a laptop).

when you unplug the computer from the monitor .. check the pins - should look to be about 15 pins in the connector. it that will plug into the tv- then you are using a vga cable. if it will not plug into the tv pc input .. don't force it. It could be a dvi connector . .take the cable off the PC and to radio shack and they can fix you up (you need a dvi to vga cable - not likely, but possible)

I always turn off a pc before disconnecting monitors - and plug into the other display before turning the pc back on.

Good luck.
Bill.

When attached via HDMI, monitor goes to "sleep". When using VGA cable, no problems. Gateway website has ZERO drivers for this monitor. Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64


First shut down the pc and then plug in new monitor then boot up and see if windows 7 will auto find the monitor.

is this a single display or are you using 2 monitors, i had 2 monitors and used the other to change the display on mine when i had this problem i am also using windows 7 and reboot usually fixes display problems because it wont see old monitor any more and detect the new one.

also update any video drivers you have like nvidia or ati(catalyst controll center)

You have an HDMI connection on a Thinkpad T20???
Per definition, HDMI is supposed to send video and audio data from the TV to the PC -so, yes, it should work.

I say "should", because I tried to hook up my PC that way and I went back to a VGA connection (and sent the sound to an old stereo), because the resolution was awful.
I rather think that the audio cable is the culprit here - if the connectors are not fitting perfectly, they can create a lot of distortion.

Also check your audio settings on the PC (updated driver, settings not on maximum volume, etc.)

If you want to try HDMI, there is no need to get the ultra expensive "Monster" cable. Look here for an example.
