Hi there
Uh oh.. Service is not for home use. It is not a source input, but used for engineers who may need to service the TV's motherboard. You may have damaged the TV by plugging into it.. If you are trying to use a computer with your TV, you need to use the RGB connection. Try resetting your TV by unplugging it for 3 minutes, then powering it on. If it still doesnt work, contact your manufacturer.
Hope this helps

I have pink color horizontal lines on my LG LCD monitor screen,How do i solve it?


You can fix you have to follow this instruction

1-Reset the TV by unplugging its power cord for 30 seconds and plugging it back in. This is an essential troubleshooting tool as a simple reset often will resolve the great majority of technical issues experienced by any kind of TV. Power the TV on after plugging it back in and check the picture for any improvement.

2-Unscrew the coaxial cable that attaches your wall cable outlet to either the coaxial cable input on the plasma TV or to any digital cable converters you may use at home. Check the copper needle in the middle of the cable for any bending or damage and screw the cable back on the coaxial input. Again, check the picture for any improvements.

3-Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to watch to the plasma TV. This is a particularly important step if you use component cables. Component cables separate a video signal into different colors, so a damaged or loose component cable can lead to noticeable discoloration on the screen. Once the cables are secure, both in the source device and the plasma TV, check the picture again to see if this may have resolved the issue.

4-Scan your channel lineup and check the other TVs in your home to determine the scope of the problem. If you see the discoloration only on one or a few channels, and the same channels are discolored on the other TVs in your home, you may be part of a cable service outage and you will need to report the issue to your cable provider. If all the channels on the one TV have the same discoloration, and the other TVs in the home look normal, the plasma TV likely will need to be serviced for a problem with its picture components.

hope that it helped

I plugged in a computer and changed the input to VGA and the TV went blank


It sounds like your tv is in sleep mode.

What are the settings for the computer? Make sure it is set for the vga output. If it is a laptop, this is usually done with a function (FN) key. On your settings screen you can set the resolution and which monitor you are using.

Hello
If you have connected the red, white, and yello video cable connection right correct to the respective pins; both at DVD and TV end, by selecting the input to Video-1 or Video-2, you must get the logo of the DVD player on the TV screen. Please not that whether you have 'Power ON' the DVD player. If the connections are good, the logo must be ther. Otherwise check the continuity of the RCA cable, of it may have damaged[shorted]. Try replace with an other cable. OK.

TV shows no input service


You may have to change / adjust the settings on your tv to use cable vs over the air antenna. When power was lost, this setting may have defaulted back to factory (Air / Antenna).

If the cable tuner is damaged, you don't need to write off the tv just yet. Try connecting a VCR to the AV / Component Video jacks, and feed the cable through the VCR (use the vcr as the tuner). Take a few more steps, but you will still be able to use the tv.

How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."


"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

Hook up a Sony VGC RA 840G desktop to a Samsung 46 inch TV


Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.
