Connect to the VGA port on the laptop, using a standard video cable.

Here is how VGA port looks like on your TV:

Note on some laptop you need to activate external video output by pressing a combination of keys, this will swap between laptop LCD video and external video.

Both the laptop and TV will require compatible connectors and compatible resolutions to be able to have the laptop drive the TV set to display the DVD playback.

You must consult the user manuals or the manufactures of both the TV and for details.

Need 4 screws for phillips 42pf9946-12 plasma tv to fit wall bracket


Best way to be sure is call Philips customer service with the model number to get the thread type and length of these--no two sets are the same here---usually most will be available at local hardware stores if Phillips does not sell them(that would be a bit more pricey and take time).

Hi, I've connected a Philips 42PF9946/79 Plasma TV to a Beyonwiz DP-Lite i Digital Set Top Box. The connection is through a HDMI Cable and TV is viewed on the 'HD' channel/mode. Previous to the Beyonwiz...


@leemcdowall...

your concern points to some adjustments of resolution from your set top box, as we all know all TV'S has fixed resolution doesnt matter what brand and the only way you can change that is through your source which in this set up is your Beyonwiz, please consult their manual and see if you can change the resolution in their video set up page.

Hook up your cables from your DVD player to these input on the back of your TV. 6131e0b.jpg The group of ports should be labeled as video 1 input. Use the Yellow, Red and White on the back of both DVD Player and TV. Then, change the input on the TV remote to input or video 1 to watch the DVD Player.

The plasma display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.
