My son flipped the screen on my Emerson lf320 tv when it was connected to the computer. I no longer have it connected, how do I fix it

don't know what "flipped the screen" means. From the looks of it, it crash landed. So I assume the cables pulled out. U have audio, video, and HDMI connector there. Plug cable from computer into appropriate spot, Set computer to use TV as display - rt clk screen and select resolution and detect display.....

Trying to connect converter box up to tv

There are two ways to connect it. You can connect it to the rf connector with a coax (like a water hose) cable or with an RCA (yellow, white, red [preferred method]) cable. Then depending on which one of the choices you made you'll have to switch the television over using the TV/Video button. Before you press that button though make sure you have the converter box plugged in and turned on so you'll see it's screen when you're flipping video inputs. If you choose the rf connector method you will have to be on channel 3. You'll be able to tell when you get to the fuzzy screen where you can press 03 to turn to channel 3. If you chose the RCA method then you'll have to choose video 1 or video 2 etc. whichever one you connected the cables to.

My lcd tv has a purple screen and no sound

same problem all set to replace TV but tried another source DVD instead of dish and it was fine. Possible the cable (cheap HDMI) but reboot the dish (hard) pull the plug and fixed it up, probably the HDMI connection at the source or the TV (or the cable)

My flip mino HD has been charging for 3 hours and will not turn on. I've tried resetting the battery and it still won't turn on

Is it plugged in directly or with a USB extension cable? Some cheaper cables are not sufficient to charge it.

PS3 went from a "snowy" screen to a black screen. HELP PLEASE!!

Two or more things, first make sure you have your audio vidio cables correct

Yellow= Video
Red= Audio right
White Audio left

Also make sure that the tv matches the input your cables are connected into. I would make sure the restart the PS3 to make sure the video is good (after checking the tv input)

I have a DLP Samsung HL-R6167w and it's not working

I had a bad digital board also. I went to to order a new part way cheaper than from repair service. the only problem I had was that after installation which is super easy 4 cables to unplug and replug. when I turned on the TV the picture came in upside down, not good. no one would give me the code to flip the screen as it is in a hidden menu, well after months of searching the web I found it!! It works for most all newer Samsung TV's. turn the TV off, hit mute then 182 and then power on button on the remote. the "hidden" menu will pop up and you scrool down to h-flip and flip the screen. I don't recommend messing with any of the other setting as you could likely really jack up the TV but at least you can fix it for a 3rd of the cost you would spend otherwise.

I just called Vizio and they said to unplug the TV, then physically hold in the power button on the TV for 2 minutes.
