OK, mini display port to VGA adapter-is the VGA cord the one that goes into the port labeled RGB and audio on the back of the Samsung? Sorry to be a dummy but Samsung monitor is 6 years old and has always...


An RGB port is for a component cable not a VGA cable. A VGA cable, similar to a component cable, only carries a video signal but is a 15 pin cable that nearly all monitors and HDTVs support. Most laptops have a VGA out port.
You should be able to connect your laptop to almost any monitor (not sure about your Samsung) with a male to male VGA cable.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

My LG tv shows no signal with hdmi cable to hp


First you need to state Mac G5 model and MacOS 10.?,? and whether the connection is VGA or mini-DVI. (I'm at 10.5.8.) I would not be helped by LG model other than to know if it is HD 1080 or 720. I'm going to assume you have MacOS 10.4 or later but most should apply. Apple>>About This Mac>>More info...>>Hardware>>Graphics/Display and read more about the display. Digital connection will give you more info. Close the Info but even with VGA you should be able to go to Apple>>System Preferences...>>Displays and have 2 windows--1 for the built-in and 1 for the external. If the latter is off screen, press Gather Windows. On the external display Turn on Show Displays in Menu Bar. This will let you control Mirroring and Resolution. You will need to pick a resolution your TV can do 1920x1080 1280x720 or possibly less to get started. My MacBook has all of those. I usually do not use mirroring and 1920x1080 gives a good pixel match to my DLP. On the external, turn on overscan if you need to put the menu bar on the screen or off if showing maximum of photos. You need to sync first, then play with other things. -Ken

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

Hooking up a Mac to tv


I ran into the same problem with my "50 maxent. The manual clearly states that mac resolutions are not supported. We won't let that stop us. Step one is to download switchresx. It's a simple utility that should allow you to define custom resolutions. http://www.madrau.com/ .
Step 2 is to download chicken of the VNC. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9517 . Once this is installed on a separate mac from the one you are trying to connect to the maxent take your mini and hook it up to the RGB port on the maxent and boot it up. Once this is done use chicken of the vnc to take control of of the mini with the other mac. Now you can change the resolution on the mini using switchresx which you installed on the mini earlier. In the case of the maxent you will need to set it to 1366x768 at 60 hz. If using another flat panel consult your user manual for the correct resolution. In my opinion there is no flat paned tv this should not work for.
Good luck!

LG 37LC7D Connect to VGA from a PC


Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.

Thanks for the help.

19" starlogic monitor


If you are getting a "No Signal" message, someone may have inadvertantly pressed the wrong button on the monitor. Use up arrow of button #5 below to cycle through RGB (normal VGA connection) and DVI sources. Down arrow will result in "No Signal" message.

There are five buttons at the bottom of the screen on this monitor. From the left:
1 - sound volume
2 - degausser
3 - power on/off
4 - monitor set-up
5 - RGB/DVI source
