You need to reset the laptop video screen output resolution and refresh rate to something compatible with the HDTVs acceptable parameters. Consult the TVs owner's manual for a chart showing the acceptable screen resolutions and refresh rates. You are looking for numbers like 1024 X 768 or 600 X 800 for screen resolution. Your laptop will allow you to setup different screen resolutions for output. You just have to find one the TV likes.

If the TV accepts a USB connection try that format. If you have a HDMI port of the laptop, tether the two with an HDMI cable.
Other than that, unless you have WiFi capability between the laptop and TV receiver....nothing else works.

If you look real close at the VGA port on the TV, you will see a small mini phone jack 'AUDIO' that is for attaching the audio cable with mini stereo phone plug at both ends, one end is to the TV PC audio input jack, another end goes to the PC AUDIO line out or headphone out.

I want to use Trutech 19" tv as computer monitor. Scrreen starts to set up and then get error message "Unsupported Mode." Is their a simple fix for this?


Hello Fayeburns,

Yes, there is a simple fix for it.

The reason why your TV is showing Unsupported Mode is because of the display resolution of your

graphics card, which is higher than what the TV can handle.
What you can try is, when your system is powered up, just go to your display settings, then

reduce the systems display resolution to--preferably 800x600 or 1024x768, then go to where you

normally select the output, and select 'Output to external monitor"...this should send the signal

input to the monitor.

In case it still doesn't work, just try and update your graphics card driver to the latest one and try

the same process again.
Most Laptop graphics display resolution are generally very powerful as compared to what the TVs

can handle.
Try this out and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps.
Goodluck and thank you for using Fixya!

Message of Unsupported video signal after attaching laptop to TV.


it sounds like the resolution the laptop is trying to send is not one of the resolutions that the television can display. TVs can display a range of resolutions, so try changing the laptop resolution, either increasing it (make the pixels smaller) or lower the resolution, try a variety of resolutions, one should work.

RCA LCD Flat Panel HDTV and RCA Home Theater System--No sound


Video comes from external device to TV - OUT on device and IN on TV.

Sound connects by the red/white cable set (or HDMI). Place set in Audio OUT ports on TV and Audio IN ports on DVD. Then select AUX IN on DVD.

RCA universal nor cable remote will program RCA L40FHD41 TV


might be able to use the cable co remote and autosearch thru the codes, but its too hard to explain, the cable tech should have ran that procedure. unfortunately, rca has 50 million models. it is common to have a tv and yes rca for sure, to not take the codes. sometimes the tv is too new for the cable company remotes to work. i am leaning toward the tv too new theory. give it six months and i bet there will be a new remote version.
