Re: Use for computers

I currently use the tv for my media center as a secondary display. yeppers it almost always will drop from the system when i change inputs to watch cable. but.. depending on what video card you have, mine is a nvidia 7950, you will need to set "force tv detection". after doing that you will notice that the set is always connected in display properties whether you turn the set on/off, change inputs, or what ever. thus keeping your res settings. an even more trouble free way to use this set is a proprietay 9din/7din svideo - component adapter sending a 720p signal to the set with force tv detection on. the benifit of this is that it also keeps you settings and you will never hear the hardware detected / disconnected alert also, if you are using this as your primary or only monitor i would suggest that you do not game on it because of the constant res changes and the fact that those res changes sometimes come with an uncontrollable refresh rate that is incompatible with your set, causing it a great deal of stress.

Re: Use for computers

I'm looking for a good answer to this problem as well, but a temporary fix is to change the resoloution to 800x600 before you turn it off or change the video. When you go back, it will be there.

Link ASUS laptop to Sharp Aquos LCD TV


No, a DVI to VGA adapter will not work. (The TV is looking for the digital signal from a set top box. This is different from the analog signal on the VGA cable.) You need a converter. Your best bet would be a VGA to component video converter. (I am assuming that the Sharp TV has a component video input.) This page has some examples: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc . Note a VGA to component video cable will not work. The VGA to component cables are for projectors that read the RGB signal. The component video signal is YPbPr.

Connect the VGA cable to the converter and the component video cable to the TV and the converter with the computer and TV off. Turn on the TV first and set it to the component video input and then turn on the computer. Then (assuming the VGA port is enabled - adjust in the BIOS if needed) set the computer's video output to the VGA port. (On my Windows 7 laptop, this can be done by right-clicking on the desktop. Choose Graphics Properties and set the display to the external monitor or both. Click Apply and then confirm the change (on the external monitor if using the single monitor). (VGA to Composite video converters also exist if you do not have an available component video input on your TV.)

If your computer is fairly new, you may have an HDMI port. Your TV may be able to read the signal with a DVI to HDMI cable. (It depends on the TV. Not all of them will read the computer's signal on the DVI port. Check the documentation for your model. TVs without a VGA port are less likely to support this feature.)

I hope this helps.

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

I am trying to connect my macbook pro computer to my Panasonic Viera using a VGA > HDMI converter, connected through to the HDMI port on the TV. The TV screen remains black on the HDMI setting. I...


On the MacBook, check the Displays pane in System Preferences to make sure the settings for the external monitor are correct. It's possible that the system is not recognizing the adapter or it has the wrong resolution setting, so it's not sending out any signal that the adapter can use.

Many of the better DVD players and high-end video game consoles use HDMI. You can use one of those as a test signal generator to check the TV.

You may get better results if you use a DVI-HDMI converter, although you would need to get the DisplayPort to DVI cable. This will avoid converting to analog VGA signals and back to digital again.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

How can I connect Panasonic TH-37PX60U Flat panel plasma tv to my computer?


It will depend on your video output options on the computer. If you have HDMI output, just use an HDMI cable and an audio cable (this will need to be a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable). If you have a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable and the audio cable (or a DVI to HDMI adapter and either a DVI or HDMI cable depending on which side you want to put the adapter). If you only have VGA out from the computer, use a VGA to DVI adapter and the DVI to HDMI connection and the audio connection. (Theoretically this should work but each adapter will have some signal loss issues.)

Some graphics cards have a video output, S-video or Component video, which would also connect to your TV with the audio cable. (Read your cards manual for more information)

I hope this helps.

(For DVI to HDMI cables, you will need to check if you have a single link or dual link DVI output. The wrong cable may not work.)

Connect my pc using VGA port into Video three... can not get picture to show .. is there something else I need to do


First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get the adapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correct TV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you need to "Enable" that Monitor Desktop. You need either a "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "Display Settings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/output, Adjust the resoloution the resoloution "Slider", it is best to start with 800x600 32bit color. or even lower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution. Once all connected up. It should all work great. Now the process is, turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON. Then, startup the PC up. It should "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor & One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop. Now you have screen 1 & screens 2. If using "Cloned" then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed on the TV. If you used Spanned however, you will have to."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, you have one Big desktop. Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of those have thier OWN, Control panel, this all then can make it all alot easier to do, so I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, then the "By Hand" method is the only way. There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control over dual displays, and is well worth installing.

Lets see the cableing..

So you have a mac with a mini-dvi slot, you have a mini-dvi to dvi adapter, and then Dvi to vga adapter which connects to the tv?

The mini-dvi to dvi adapter doesn't have the analog VGA signal your tv needs. If I understood right.

Apple's mini-DVI to DVI-D cable does not carry the analog signal coming from the mini-DVI port on the Apple computer. This means that instead of buying a single mini-DVI cable from Apple and using a cheap DVI-to-VGA adaptor when you need VGA output, you must purchase another mini-DVI cable from Apple.

No signal


Weegee, Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi for info on DVI interfaces.
