Samsung "Not Supported Mode" showing up

by stl102 / May 3, 2007 2:08 PM PDT

Hi, my Samsung DLP HL-S5086W is displaying "Not supported mode" message when I try to connect my DTV box to it. I have read the directions and attached a DVI/HDMI cable to the back of the cable box and input the HDMI end into HDMI slot 2 on the TV just like the manual told me. I have tried resetting the box and turning the TV off but that doesn't work either. Please help and thanks in advance.

not supported mode

I had the same problem with my TV. It ended up being that the "main board" had to be replaced. It sucks but customer service was great.... they had a tech come to my house and fix it on site. The only thing that was out of my pocket was the tip I threw the guy. This is an older post and this reply may not help you anymore, but hopefully it will help other people having this problem. I couldn't seem to find an answer to this online.

You need to set up with component cables first.

Hook up the component cables on the tv and the dtv box
go to set up on the menu select HDTV or display and deselect all of the 480i and 480p and in some cases also the 720 and only select 1080i to be display. you can then hook up your hdmi cable again and it shoud be supported.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
