Changing mode from frame buffer sysfs made screen black


I tried to change the display mode of the HDMI TV connected in the HDMI port from sysfs of frame buffer. But the result was black sceen.

I tried :

[root@anumol sajna]# cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes
[root@anumol sajna]# echo U:1024x768p-0 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/mode
But this made my screen black. But I can see the mouse pointer.

Can anyone help.
