Question about HP PL5060N 50 in. Plasma HDTV

2 Answers

The source input changes by itself.

If I press input on the remote the on screen display scrolls by itself through the different inputs and usually stops on antenna. If I am able to get it to stay on HDMI it usually only lasts a few minutes then reverts back to antenna by itself. The volume also goes up and down by itself.

Resetting isn't going to help in this case..What you have going on is the microprocessor on the board that has the inferred eye on it has failed. If your comfortable being inside the TV and around high voltage have the set on and running and carefully unhook the connector going to that board from the main, I think you will find everything works ok then, if so replace that board, you should be able to find one online at eBay for under 10 bucks, cheap fix

Do a reset to this TV, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

SOURCE: Input Signal Out of Range

I have an HP 1730 LCD monitor on a Compaq Presario S5100 desktop PC running Windows XP, up to date on patches as of 2009 Feb 25. For no apparent reason, the "input signal out of range" error message started appearing when the machine switches from boot mode (which looks OK) to regular windows mode. (My configuration does not HAVE a "safe mode" boot, by the way, so the usual advice doesn't apply.) Was the fault in the monitor, or the computer?

Step 1: see whether the computer is actually booting or not. Result: Over the home LAN, I was still able to access the shared directory on the suspect machine. This is good.

Step 2: swap the LCD monitor for an old Compaq MV720 CRT monitor. Result: the monitor does not like the input signal (essentially, the out-of-range error by another name), so the video signal IS faulty.

Step 3: reboot the PC with the analog monitor still attached. Result: the system boots up just fine, so there's something wrong with the way the PC boots with the LCD.

Step 4: swap video cables (without rebooting). Result: the LCD displays the working desktop, so the LCD display is still good, but there's still something wrong with the handshake between the LCD and the PC during boot. But we still don't know whether the LCD monitor is failing to produce the right Plug-and-Play sequence, as it used to, or the PC is no longer correctly interpreting the PnP sequence, so it's mis-configuring the video signal for the monitor.

Step 5: Back everything up, like you always should have been. (Always the last step, after a computer failure. ;-) )

SOURCE: No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep

Hi publicworker,

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.

How to do that:

  • right mouse click on the desktop
  • select graphic options
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.

SOURCE: hp w1907 monitor not detecting vgi input from original HP x3122 computer

It sounds like your computer has been having some trouble for some time. My hunch is that there is nothing wrong with the monitor at all.

Usually, when you see this warning on the screen that there is no signal, the monitor is trying to tell you that it cannot talk to the computer. This means the computer either a.) will not boot or b.) your video card in the computer has stopped working.

Does your computer make all the usual noises when you start it up? Can you hear the hard drive clicking and the fans come on?

Have you reseated the video connection on the back of the tower?

My guess is that something was going out before and it is now gone. The first place I would look to diagnose this problem is the hard drive.

Hard drives fade to fail sometimes, and when they are fading, the entire computer becomes painfully slow.

Hope this helps
good luck
tony

Display continueuly changes


Unplug your device for about 30 minutes to let the circuitry reset itself.
If it works normally after that, it means a hardware part(s) is overheating inside, more likely a power supply is starting to fail and does not provide the proper voltages for the microprocessor.

What channel does the tv have to be on to play a dvd


it doesnt mater what channel the tv is on, find the source or input button on the remote. when you press source button a list of input devices should display on the screen,the source you want should be VIDEO but it all depends on what input the player is connected.With the player on as you scroll through each of the items listed on the source menu no mater what input the device is connectedthe dvd player welcome menu will appear on the screen.if this doesnt work check to make sure the RCA cord is connected to video out(yellow)and audio out(white and red) on the player then on the tv there will be several input options any ony should work as long as it is an input port but ideally you want to use the one marked video/DVD in.

PIP function does not work, the settings is greyed out also! I have a wii, PS3 and freesat :)


Hi nikkicollier,
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.
derrickolz.png

I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
  • TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
  • PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
  • Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree.
To change your PiP settings:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
  2. Select PIP and press Enter.
  3. Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again.
    Note:
    If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
  4. Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button.
    Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button.
    Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to.
    Note:
    You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
You can download the full PDF manual for your TV here (large download at 26MB.) Much of the PIP information can be found on pages 13 and 14.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

Video input source is changed by the buttons:
1. Video Source
2. Input
3. TV/Video
4. Source

one of those four on the remote some where.

Also, chances are your TV itself will have one of those buttons somewhere.
Usually pressing it will either cycle through the inputs or bring up a selection of them, which is usually navigated by either arrow buttons on your remote or the channel up and down keys.
Lemme know how it goes.
