Require display sotware for Philips LCDTV Model 20PFL4122

This TV is good but when I connect to my PC for computer work to use the TV as Monitor the display spread all over as big as 20" screen gives only half of a webpage. As it is a TV it does not come with instalation CD for correcting Display. Can any body help in correcting display of TV to function as a PC Monitor, particularly when the point of PC connectivity is there in Philips TV.

Try this if you haven't already found the solution:
- Open the Control Panel - Open the Display folder - Click on the Settings tab - Adjust the slider to different resolutions to see if one fits your screen better.

I have a Proscan 40 inch 1080P LCDTV (40LD45Q), but when I connect my computer to it, (GTX 260) with DVI-HDMI cable, it says the native resolution is 1366x768. Is Proscan lying that this TV is 1080P?


You can attempt to force 1080p to the TV by unchecking the box "hide modes this monitor cannot display" in the display adapter propteries, then try to select 1920 by 1080p, 60hz, 32 bit color, and see what happens. Post back what your findings are.

How do i set my acer travel mate 2312lm to 1440 by 900 pixel so i can work my lcd tv


**Your Laptop has VGA port for connecting external monitors :

Laptop Video Specs :

Laptop's Max Resolution1024 x 768
Integrated Video card : SiS Mirage M661MX

NOTE : If LCDTV does not have a VGA port, you will not be able to use it a external monitor.

Steps :
1. Connect Laptop to LCDTV using a VGA Cable
2. Right-click on your desktop and select "Properties." (or click on start > Control Panel > Display)
3. A new window displaying several tabs will appear. Select the tab called "Settings."
4. You will see boxes with numbers on the middle, in your case 1 and 2 will be present.

5. Click on 2 and click on box beside "Extend my windows Desktop onto this monitor" then choose the resolution that you like (1440 by 900) then click on apply. If 1440 by 900 is not available, choose the closest under 1440 by 900. Don't go over 1440 by 900 since that is the max value that will work on you LCD TV.

6. After clicking on Apply, the display should be present on the LCD TV. (The disply is an extended desktop so you will not see the start button nor the taskbar on the LCD TV. but it should have the same wallpaper. You can Drag the windows to the LCDTV. This will serve as an extension of you desktop. (Ex : You can watch movie on the LCDTV and you can do documents on the laptop's screen at the same time).

Being both a monitor and hdtv it is set up to take different inputs. i use a 26"lcdtv to do the same thing here. a couple questions.... Does the tv have a "PC" input like the one on your computer for the monitor or are you using a dmi or hd cable for the connection.
I know my tv will try to use the HD format on ALL pictures if i connect it to anything but the PC connection. I got around this by installing the monitor correctly in the comuter.
On the remote , you should be able to hit the "format" button to change the bars at top & bottom, these are shown when you are in a mode other than one native to your tv.

Hello i purchased a philips 20PFL4122 lcd tv/pc monitor and i have a problem when i set the resolution on my pc to 640/480 as instucted in the user manual the pages are to large to fit the the screen when...


I have bad news for you.

The monitor you bought (Great Price by the way) is working exactly as designed. The problem is the 640 x 480 resolution. Almost all internet content now days is scaled for either 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 resolution. This is why every time you open a page you have to pan both left and right and up and down to see the entire page.

LCD monitiors are designed for a fixed resolution unlike CRT (TV Tube) monitors that can display different resolutions with equal clarity. This is why when you go to a higher resolution the screen is almost impossible to read.

Since your optimal resolution is 640 x 480, that is the only resolution that displays clearly. That is great for a TV, but sorely lacking as a computer monitor. It is also why the monitor was such a good price (a definite case of you get what you pay for here). So the unfortunate answer is that the monitor will never be satisfactory when used on the internet.

USB and speakers not working.


Have you got..
  1. A USB cable from the computer connected to the USB input on the monitor? It needs that cable to supply USB outputs from the monitor. The monitor acts as a USB hub.
  2. The speakers on the monitor also require a cable from the soundcard on your computer to the sound input of the monitor.

Hooking up computer to philips 60pp935217 AV5 HDTV connector?


Hi Roger,

Initially, pls try lowering the screen resolution of your PC. This can be done at the Display Properties/Settings tab and then move the slider of the Screen resolution towards the left, Apply OK. In some instances, you need to also lower down the Screen refresh rates in the Monitor tab of the Advanced Properties.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, then other methods can be considered.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Green light goes on and off


Hi, aside from the blinking green light, does it display something like "No Signal", if it is it might be possible that it's not your monitor that is on the brink, it is possible that your computer isn't turning on and therefore the monitor cannot display anything since there is no video signal from the computer. Perhaps you can try plugging the Philips monitor to another PC that is known to be operational to check if it will display something. If it does then the other PC is not working, if again no display or green light blinks, then the Philips monitor would require service. You might have to have a qualified service personnel to have a look inside and further diagnose the proble. I wouldn't recommend that you try opening the monitor since it's a bit complicated. Hope this be of some use to you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
