Hello

With either the PC IN or HDMI connection, you can watch

your computer's display on the TV and hear the sound from the
TV's speakers.

When connecting a PC to the PC IN terminal on the TV, use an
analog RGB (15-pin) computer cable and a PC audio cable.

To use a PC, set the monitor output resolution on the PC

before connecting it to the TV. The following signals can be
displayed:

Format Resolution V. Frequency

VGA 640 × 480 60Hz

SVGA 800 × 600 60Hz
XGA 1024 × 768 60Hz

Other formats or non-standard signals will not be displayed

correctly.

Note:

The PC audio input terminals on the TV are shared with the
HDMI-1 analog audio input terminals
Some PC models cannot be connected to this TV.
OK.

Trying to hook my home PC into my LG TV gets me the message Invalid Format, what can I do to get the signal or can i use this tv for my monitor with a dell PC


Connect VGA (D-sub 15 pin) cable from PC to TV (RGB PC) input jack. Connect audio cable from PC to TV. Set screen resolution on PC to be compatible with TV, such as 800 X 600 or 1024 X 768 etc. Select on the TV, the PC INPUT using the TV remote when ready to use as monitor.

Under PICTURE on the TV select SCREEN (RGB-PC). You can AUTO-CONFIG or you can set resolution manually to the same you set PC to. Other adjustments can be done here as well to get optimum picture on TV from PC.

I hook up my pc to lg lcd it always says invalid format any solution


What cable connection are you using? What resolution was the computer sending to the video graphics adapter before you connected the two?

The TV can only support
VGA Resolution: 720x400, 1360x768, 640x350, 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x768, 1360x768 or 1366x768
HDMI to DVI: 640x350, 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x768, 1360x768 or 1366x768

For best results you should use 1360x768.

Try resetting this when the Input is set to that for the computer. Press Menu and select Picture. Press Enter and select Screen (RGB-PC) (use the Up/Down arrows). Press Enter and select Resolution. Then press Enter and select the desired resolution. Then press Enter again.

If you like there is a Auot-config option in the Screen menu, that may set the TV properly.

If the above doesn't help, use another monitor and check the output resolution and then reconnect to the TV.

I hope this helps.

Invalid format message when trying to use the RGB(PC) port


Honestly, that sounds like one of two things happened. Either the resolution of your computer video card changed or (I'm not sure with your specific TV) the TV's resolution changed.
If through the TV menus you can adjust PC resolution, I would try changing the resolutions. In the LG 47LB5DF TV, press Menu, then go to Picture, then go down to Screen. On the screen menu, you will see Resolution, Position, Size, Phase, and Reset. First try adjusting the Resolution to some of the options you see. If that doesn't work, try to reset the screen settings.
If adjusting those settings on your TV does not help, then you will have to change the resolution through the computer. Try connecting a monitor to the computer. If you get a picture through the monitor, on the desktop right click and select Properties. If using XP go to the setting tab, if using Vista/7, select Display Settings. Lower the resolution to something you think the TV will be able to handle, then connect the PC to the TV again. If you are using an HDMI connection to the TV, you may have to turn off the computer, connect the cable, then turn the computer back on with the TV on the correct input.
If the monitor doesn't show the picture or if you don't have another monitor, you can try adjusting the picture in safe mode, by pressing F8 after you press the power button, before you see the Windows loading screen. Press if multiple times if necessary. You should see a screen that gives you a few startup options. Select Safe Mode. After Windows boots up, you should still see the screen as the resolution would have been reduced. From there try changing your display settings.
Hopefully that info has helped. I noticed that you asked this question 2yrs ago, so I hope you have already figured out how to fix your problem. I simply wished to post this in case it would help you or anyone else had a similar problem. Good luck and take care.

RGBPC input showing invalid format after move


There is nothing wrong with the connection, your TV or computer. Just changw the resolution settings under the display properties. Start with the lowest setting 800X600 and move your way up. It will eventually appear.

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.

DVI will not recognise now ?


Presumably, you're going directly from DVI port on computer to DVI port on Z2?. Here is a Q&A list based on all the possible sceanrios for this hook-up...

Q1: Is it DVI-D or DVI-I (with unencrypted DIGITAL output from graphics card)?
A1: Choose 'Input 2', then 'RGB(PC Digital)' on Z2.

Q2: Is it DVI-D or DVI-I (with HDCP-encrypted DIGITAL output from graphics card)?
A2: Choose 'Input 2', then 'RGB(AV HDCP)' on Z2.

Q3: Is it DVI-I or DVI-A (with ANALOGUE output from graphics card)?
A3: Choose 'Input 2', then select 'RGB(Analog)' on Z2.

After making sure the correct 'Input 2' is chosen to match the signal coming from the card's DVI port, make sure your card is outputting a suitable screen resolution that the PLV-Z2 can display correctly, e.g... 1280x720 (native, and preferable!); 640x480; 800x600; 1024x768 (choose this if you don't have 1280x720); 1280x1024, etc. Also, if you have multiple refresh rates availble for the resolutions, choose 60Hz.

You should end up with an image.
