    This was a flat screen LCD

  • braffin May 02, 2008

    I have already tried all the buttons, including the VGA button. The model TV is 23PF8946/37. What do you mean by 'input sources?'

  • braffin May 02, 2008

    Okay. Unplugging and plugging back in brought back the picture. Now the issue I was dealing with when I lost the picture. I wanted to video tape off the set and the only channel that would accept the VCR was 3 in mono. But it wouldn't show the program, only pllay the video. What happened?

  • braffin May 02, 2008

    Unplugging the TV and replugging it in brought back the picture. But I still have the original problem that the VCR will work only on channel 3 but, when I turn on the menu for the VCR, I get 'no signal available.'

Vga is usually for computer input. try pushing other buttons, input or source for example, because you can't hurt the tv if you just push buttons on the remote control, they are built that way. you might get something out of whack. if nothing else, unplug the tv for half a minute and plug it back in, it might reset itself. vga on older sets means something other than computer.

Find the button that relates to the input you want to view. IE "video" "composite" "s-video"
Or simply try any of the input buttons until the picture returns. 
Also try simply hitting the VGA button again.
If none of that works, please let me know the model number of the tv and the input sources you are trying to view.

How to get laptop connected with vga connector to


Unplug the television. Connect the VGA compatible monitor cable from the laptop's VGA monitor Output to the VGA Input on the back panel of the television. You will need a splitter to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the VGA Audio Input on the television. Never mind if you have speakers connected to your computer.

Press the Device button on the remote control or on the television front panel to display the Device Selection Menu. Select the device you want to view, in this case VGA. The only compatible resolution is 640X480 at a sync rate of 60 Hz.

Do not leave stationary or letter-box images on-screen for extended period of time to avoid uneven picture tube aging.

I was tring to remove the concave off my screen and came across a setting where you can make the picture larger or smaller. On the TV, not the remote, press and hold the menu button, press and release the power button, press and release the volume up button and release the menu button. P0 and V0 will be displayed on the screen press the volume up button until the V0 is V76. Press the channel up button until P0 is P11 and press the volume up/down button to make the picture larger/smaller. If you need to center the picture press the channel down button until P11 is P10 and press the volume up/down button to center your picture. I hope this helps
