Hello fellas,

I recently bought a used Asus computer tower and I'm havi g trouble connect it to my 55 roku tv. I bought a vga to hdmi cord and I thought it was as easy as plug and play. I was wrong only message I'm getting on the tv is "no signal-is the device on"

What can I do to troubleshoot this problem? Please help !!

It looks like you have the VGA-to-HDMI plugged into your TV's "HDMI 1" port and the error message on the TV screen says it cannot find a signal on "HDMI 2".

So, either use the TV remote to change the "Input" from "HDMI 2" to "HDMI 1"
or,
move the HDMI end of the cable from the "HDMI 1" port to the ""HDMI 2" port.

Does the computer work okay with a VGA monitor?

What is the maximum resolution your computer can handle?

What resolution does the TV need?

Are you sure the VGA-to-HDMI actually works?

Currently, What's your power on sequence ?? .... Computer then TV ?? .....
If all else fails, You might want to try reversing the power on sequence.

I will also add that when using HDMI, the TV will expect a TV spec input signal (ie: 480P / 720P / 1080P ).
