My 42 inch sylvania hdtv screen is broken and not showing a picture


If the display panel (PLASMA DISPLAY PANEL--PDP) is damaged or broken etc it is fatal as the cost of the part alone will exceed the cost of a new set.

My sylvania monitor is say format not suppoted when i connect it to my mac


You did not specify Mac model nor connection cable. Let me make a stab at it. ED means this is a 480-line interlaced or progressive, not sure. So you will need to select 640x480 plain or stretched. This based on what my MacBook Early 2009 white allows. I assume you are using an HDMI or DVI connection from a mini-DVI (mine) or the newer mini-DisplayPort. (I bought an ~$10 adaptor from monoprice.) -Ken

Is my ILO 42" "EDTV" plasma ready for just a regular antenna?


No, it doesn't have a digital tuner. If you want to watch digital channels you will have to acquire a digital set-top box and connect it to the tv thru the av inputs.

Tried hooking the computer to an external monitor. Got the welcome screen ok, then it lost sync and went black. Tried it on another plasma; same result. SVGA cable connection.


Hi there. When you connect an external display, your laptop clones your desktop to the external display, including resolution settings. First you need to check what resolution settings the plasma can display. If your laptop is set to a resolution that the external monitor can't display, then you will lose the display once the resolution settings are loaded. You can change the laptop resolution in your Display Settings.

If you don't know what settings the external monitor can display, just open your Display Settings and set your laptop resolution to 1024x768. Almost all new monitor/tv's can display it. Connect your external display, and see what happens. If it works, but the resolution doesn't look right, then just move the resolution along one more, until you find one you're comfortable with.

N.B. Some monitors/tv's "jump" resolutions. i.e. the monitor can display 1024x768, 1300x768, but not 1280x800.

Another thing to remember is that if you are running Windows Vista, you may need to check that the Windows Mobility Center recognises the external display that you are trying to use. You can find Windows Mobility Center by clicking Control Panel, then Mobile PC. It should now be listed on the screen.

Let me know how it goes, and if it works, please rate.

Where do you hook in the cable connection


There is no cable connection. This set is a monitor and you need cable or satellite.

Your TV monitor cannot support the format (scan rate) that your computer's display card is putting out. Go in to the computer's set-up for the resolution under the display properties and adjust the settings to support the TV monitor. Refer to the TV's instruction manual to see the supported formats.

When going back to the computer's display, the display format will have to be changed back to have the proper resolution.

TV sets are generaly not as good as dedicated computer monitors for use on computers.
