Some help please.
I have a have a 50 inch Samsung TV,
Model Code: PS50B450B1WXXU
I have connected my PC(windows 10) to this TV using a HDMI cable & get the message on TV: Mode Not Supported.
I have tries to find a newer TV software for this TV but cannot.
How can I resolve this issue please.
Yes, the TV is about 12 years old now.
Trying to use TV as monitor so can watch movies from PC to TV.(this in not smart TV).
I was assuming because the TV has the connectors, it should work?
This is my cabling set up from PC to TV.
Y splitter to PC VGA >>> 1 VGA to PC monitor, 2nd VGA into HDMI converter >>> HDMI cable from converter to TV. Also tried HDMI cable from converter to HDMI selector switch to TV.
Y splitter to PC audio >>> 1 audio cable to monitor speakers >>> 2nd audio cable to converter.
All the cables are connected correctly & I keep getting message on TV, "Mode not supported or no signal."
When I use PC VGA cable straight to TV VGA, it works fine.(SD signal).
When I use HDMI converter cable to TV its not working.(HD signal).
I have 4 other HDMI equipment connected to TV via HDMI selector switch & they all work fine.(sky now box, satellite box, cable box, PS 3), Only the PC VGA to HDMI is not working for some reason. (HD signal).
Hope the above makes sense.
Thanks for your assistance.
Unfortunately, your method did not work for me, which I tried first.
But what did work was:
My tv is mounted on my bedroom wall, so in frustration in trying to connect cables to different connectors on the back of the TV, I removed the TV from the wall and managed to locate another HDMI port on rear.
Connected the HDMI cable for PC to HDMI port 2 and bingo. it is working, good clear signal from PC to TV via HDMI cable.
TV port HDMI 1 & 3 did not work with PC signal but HDMI port 2 is working fine.
Thanks to all who took the time to try to assist me.
