Question about Flat Panel Televisions

Connecting Television to Computer

I bought a VGA to RBG cord to connect my Panasonic TC-37LZ85 flat screen 37 inch 1080p to my Thinkpad T60 computer. I've gone through the display and tried connecting it so that i can display what is on my computer screen onto the television, but I cannot get it to show up. I'm not sure what display might be keeping it from showing up on the television. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    The television has three HDMI inputs ( not VGA inputs or DVI inputs), but the T60 has only a vga input, which is going to limit my options. When I restart my computer I get a partial green screen that disappears when I sign in. That tells me that something is connecting, but image wise nothing can be seen. That doesn't mean it will work, but it gives me hope that I might configure my settings to make it work. I'm not sure if my type of flat screen might shed some light. Also, I'm not interested in buying an expensive converter. I'm hoping to spend $50 or less for a reasonably quality image.

    Thanks for your reply and hope to hear back!

How do I connect my computer to the Panasonic Viera TC-37LZZ85 so that the TV becomes my computer's viewing screen?

Presume your TV doesn't have a VGA input,
Does it have a HDMI input? So, if your computer has a HDMI output, you can watch your screen connecting HDMI
There is no other way. with a standard computer and TV.
Early personal computers had an audio/video output. I don't know if there is any similar video card currently.

Power button blinks 4 times then stops, then blinks again 4 times. Continues.

Please check the power supply board. You will find some voltages missing there.

My panasonic 37'' TC-37LZ85 tv's lcd screen got broken when it fell off its stand. can you recommend where i can get it fixed? any idea how much it's gonna cost me? tnx

It will cost you moe than a new TV by the time you purchase the used screen plus shipping plus labor. You need to get the exact model number of the LCD panel as printed on the sticker on the back of the LCD panel. 37" is about $200 for used imperfected screen.
