This happens when you have a video signal that the TV does not recognize. If you have an High Definition source such as a Blue Ray Disc player, High Definition Set Top Box, Or a High Defintion Gamming System than use the HDMI output of such device, connect a HDMI cable to this output and put the other end into The input of HDMI on the TV. Make sure you have this device on before you select the input on the remote of the TV or the TV will say NOT Supported Mode.

My 42 in vizio froze with the vizio name across the screen and can't get it off please help

Hi Jennifer,
Have you tried unplugging the TV for an hour or so? This should allow any transient memory todecay. If this doesn't work I think that you should contact vizio customer support.

How to fix my samsung tv

What's the source of the signal for the LN-R328W. The mode not supported message shows up when the source signal is not compatible with the TV. For example: if the source is a computer, use a different monitor to make sure that the refresh rate is 60Hz. Next, turn on the TV and set it to the VGA source before you turn on the computer. (Most modern computers will then see the TV as a monitor and set the correct resolution.) Note: this TV can't support an HDMI signal from a computer. (The signal is different than that for a Blu-ray player or HD set-top box.)
For game stations, you may need to check the manual for the box to set the resolution for your TV.

I hope this helps.

Look in the manual for the TV and determine which platform is supported. VGA, XVGA, SVGA etc. Set your computer output to the proper mode and the unit should work. Let me know how you make out.

Monitor says mode not supported

Yes the resolution your trying to display on your TV is not supported by your TV so you computer is warning you before doing damage to your TV. there are certain modes you can use and calling the manufacture or reading the manul will tell you what modes you can place this monitor in and then change it in the display menu of you operating system. the monitor is not the problem its the mode you in is not supported by your monitor so to not risk it your computer is telling oyu that is not supported so please look at the manual and go with the support it tells you.

Blue ray wont play movies on new tv

Are you sure the tv is 1080p capable? Usually when "mode is not supported" is displayed, it means that the tv can not handle the signal format that is being input to it. If you are using HDMI, then signal formatting is usually handled automatically. If you are using component video, you will probably have to tell the PS3 to step down the signal to either 1080i or 720p.

Not supported mode lcd tv samsung lnt4061f

with the PC input or analog SVGA the only 16:9 resolution it supports is 1920x1080, which can be difficult for some older systems to handle. However, on HDMI it should support all the standard HD resolutions.
