RGBPC input showing invalid format after move

I moved from one aprtment to another. When I was in my first place I was able to hook my RGB/PC up to the TV and use it as a monitor. After moving this function has become unavailable to me. I get a warning indicating Invalid Format. I am using the some connection set up I had previously. I do not know If when moving the TV I flickied a switch or someting. I have gone thru the input/menu settings on screen and have not been able to get the connection going.

Please advise

Thank you for your time,

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.

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.

Screen turns blue after Windows XP boot. It is


You cannot set your PC video resolution to 1920x1080 @60Hz?

Per user manual:
1. Set computer to a resolution supported by your HDTV (see Preset PC Resolutions). If your
computer supports it, we recommend 1920x1080 @60Hz.
2. Turn off the power to your HDTV and Computer.
3. Connect the VGA cable from your computer to the RGB PC jack on your HDTV.
4. Connect the 1/8-inch audio cable from your computer to the RGB PC Audio jack on your HDTV.
This step is optional and only needed to transmit audio from the computer through the TV.
5. Turn on the power to your HDTV and computer.
6. Select RGB using the INPUT button on the remote control or side of your HDTV.
Note: Refer to your PC computer user manual for more information about the video output requirements.

I moved my tv and now I am getting message No RGB signal, power will be turned off


If you had something plugged into your component jacks that's the red, green, and blue That's what RGB stands for and they are usually accompanied with another red and white set of plug ins that is the audio. Sometimes people use them for hooking up their DVD players,Cable boxes, or Satellite receivers. When you moved the TV it might have come lose. If not you can go to input or input select on your TV and change the input to what you are using Composite,HDMI,etc.I hope I helped you.

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).

Cant connect to pc


It high definition digital signal. You will need a HD cable not a vga (that is analog).
Check in you tv manual. It should give you options of what cable to use. May need the HDMI cable.

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.
