Please confirrm if the connection given is to the port that supports the signal as the message indicates.
If this is the RF signal then it must go to the RF tuner input of the Tv.
If the set top box is used you will need to connect the video and audio outputs to the corresponding video and audio inputs of the TV.
Please confirm if this has been followed.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Invalid format indicates issues with the PC Mode, if the signal is not out of range then check the input source.
Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Get sound and "invalid format" message displayed instead of picture


Could have still been hit by a surge. Take the back off of the TV and look at the main board were you connect your HDMI. See if it is scorched or components that blackened. Also check your DVD player on another set. Your DVD player could be the problem.

Connecting laptop to lcd


You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck
