I've managed to fix this problem with my setup - A Tranquil T2-WHS-A3 using the built in SiS 662 Mirage 1 IGP.

I had the same issue. When I connected the computer to the scren using the vga lead, the screen would power off. I tried a number of different (in spec) resolutions - all the same result. Note that this computer worked fine with two other monitors.

I have now put a KVM between the computer and the monitor. This KVM is serving no pupose but getting in the way! However, it now works!

My guess is that either my video card is outputting slightly over the spec voltage on one or more of the vga lines, or the TV is being picky and wanting lower than the max spec. With the KVM in the way, some of the voltage is dropped across and so it works.

One thing to note I still can't get the largest spec resolution (1360 x 768) to work. but 1024x768 and 1152x864 do work.

Hope this helps!

Cannot install java on samsung i640


Im very sorry Dude

  • It is NOT officially possible to install java MIDlets on samsung handsets (excluding smartphones) via bluetooth, IrDa, USB cable or serial cable. MIDlets can only be downloaded by Over-The-Air (OTA) via a download server
  • There is currently no method for installing MIDlets on other platforms other than by OTA/GPRS via a download server.
BUT THERE ARE SOME UNOFFICIAL METHOD PLEASE TRY THIS BUT RISK IS WITH U.

Install JAVA games on your Samsung via a USB cable, BT or even an IR port
The method here is rather straightforward. It has been tested on my two D500 phones without a single problem biggrin.gif

1. Download and install Softick PPP from here. The software is designed for Palm users, so if you receive any error messages such as unable to locate USBPORT.dll, just ignore them.

2. Active your IR connection or hook your USB cable into the phone.
For IR users, you need to active the IR connection on both of your laptop and D500, and approach the laptop with your D500 to let it find the phone prior to any transferring.
For USB connection, the one I tested is from fonefunshop

3. Start Softick PPP, and check if it has your connection in its 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial'. Active it if done.

4. Run 'Uploader.exe' program and add a jad file.

5. Enable Serial Java download - #*536963#.

6. Enter Serial Java menu #*5737425#, and choose USB from "1 PPP UP'. Please bear in mind, just do it once for each switch on/off!
Select second option - "2.Serial Download"

7. Let upload and softick PPP access the net if you installed a firewall.





-More details--------------------------------------------------------

If you are using a USB cable, please take the following steps:

1. deactive Softick PPP, and exit it.
2. connect the cable,
3. run Samsung's PIM & File Manager to make sure that you get connected. If not, please switch off and on your mobile and try it again.
4. run Softick PPP
5. go to it's 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial' to check if it has a connection such as COM7 Devicess_mdm0. If so, select it, otherwise exit the Softick PPP and go back to the first step. (you may find the proper COM setting from the windows device manager->modems->Samsung Mobile USB modem)
6. active Softick PPP.
7. run Uploader.exe
8. ......

For IR users,

1. deactive Softick PPP, and exit it.
2. active your IR connection。
3. approach your phone to the laptop, and make sure there displays an icon in your tray area and it gives a message 'there is a device around....'
4. run Samsung's PIM & File Manager to make sure that you get connected via IR. If not, please switch off and on your mobile and try it again.
5. run Softick PPP.
6. enable IRDA interface support in 'Settings->Options'
7. go to it's 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial' to check if it includes a connection such as 'COM4 Device

Laptop to samsung tele


  1. Ensure that the connection is a direct cable connection from the PC to the TV, no converters or cable adapters as these are generally not Bi-directional which is required for a PC to see a TV.
  2. Try turning on the TV, then booting the computer. Some devices require the initialization signal from the computer to activate the port on the TV.
  3. See if the TV input select has an option to search for active signals.
IF none of that helps, post the exact model of TV and computer as well as the type of cable connection you are using.

The biggest stopper most of the time is a cable converter.

Samsung HT-X40 System Problem


Hello All, I discovered the same problem when connecting my LCD TV LE40R8 to my HT-X30. I reported the problem to Samsung this morning and they told me that they are aware of the issue (which is with the TV) and an automatic software update to resolve the problem will be sent out to the TV early in December. You should get an automatic update message on your screen, just follow the instructions and this should upload the fix. Fingers crossed!
