Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Trying to watch laptop through TV screen but when I connect cable and choose pc button on remote, I get a message 'out of range'. This cable works ok on another small tv so assume the cable is not the problem.



Answers :

You will have to go into your computer video card's control panel, and configure both the dual screen mode and the resolution of each screen.\015\012
\015\012Some screens get crazy when the resolution doesn't fit properly, so try changing resolution if you keep having that problem.\015\012

I have a Hitachi 42PD7200 plasma tv. The hdmi port works with the new xbox 360, satellite tv and until recently my Samsung bluray player. When the bluray is connected (via a 4 port HDMI switcher of directly to the TV) it shows the bluray starting up with the Samsung logo and then gives the message invalid frequency. At this point the picture and normally sound are lost. I have connected the bluray to another TV using HDMI, the same cables and it works fine. Has anyone come across this problem

I connected my laptop to my LG 50PQ1000, and then my Blu-ray player didn't work - no mater what I did, the problem was "invalid format". I tried everything, including putting it on another TV - there it worked just perfect, but on LG no. I changed the HDMI cables, I tried all possible resolutions, no way. I updated the player - the problem remained the same. Now in order to watch DVD and BRD I put back the old cables, not HDMI cable.

My LG Flatron M2262D, about six months old, stopped working with the on screen message 'check signal cable'. I checked it by using it on another set, and it is perfect. Any ideas?

I have a Mitsubishi WD-Y65 and just left DirecTV and went with my local cable provider. All I have is a blue screen and the tech couldn't figure out the issue. I have a regular TV in another room and the cable works there as it should. But I'd rather have it work on the WD-Y65. I've tried going through the set up, etc, but can't get anything to change. It's on HDMI-1 and the cable guy said it should be on cable. Help? Thanks....Scott

I have an Insignia NS-LCD42HD-09 42 inch flat screen tv. The HDMI input works, but the component cable says no signal, and I only get cable on two channels. All other channels say no signal. The two channels I get have both picture and sound, and it is not my cable company because I plugged in another tv to the same cable, and everything works fine. I've had this TV for almost three years.

My Denon receiver, mounted in another room, has HDMI inputs from my DVD player and cable TV. Signal goes from receiver through HDMI into a signal transmitter and then to the TV via Cat 5 data cable and signal receiver. The signal frequently drops out, and especially if any light switches are turned on/off. Is it likely the problem is the result of an electrical wiring problem, or could it be a problem with the Denon receiver itself?


It would seem that the transmitter and/or the receiver may be causing all the fuss...or the cat 5 is having issues...the cat5 cable may have some defect...try using another cat 5(even if it's 6ft long,move receiver closer to tv/dvd and use transmitte ... Flat Panel Televisions

My HD cable box, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD recently had an automatic upgrade. I followed instructions and selected 1080p resolution. I now have a "not supported mode" message on the screen and can't seem to get it back to normal. I'm guessing that the TV is 1080i and this is why it doesn't work. Can I reset the TV to its original setting? The cable company says the cable box is working fine.
