Connecting my compaq presario 2200 to my panasonic viera 42"

I'm trying to connect my Compaq Presario 2200 to my Panasonic Viera 42". The computer only has VGA. The Plasma has HDMI and an S-video. I was going to buy a VGA to S-video/RCA adapter however I read that it won't work if the PC doesn't have video-out. I don't have the manual for the laptop do you know a way I can find out if I have the video-out on this particular PC so I can determine the correct product I would need to purchase to successfully connect the pc to the TV?

If your computer has a VGA port on the side then it has video out. I've never seen a laptop without one but I guess that does not mean they don't exist :) I'm not sure what model of Viera you have, but the one that comes up on Amazon has a VGA input built in. If yours does then a simple old school monitor cable from a desktop computer will do the trick.

Here is a good one cheap:

If not, you can buy a VGA adapter:

Also, if you want audio to play through the tv/stereo, you will need to get a cable to carry audio as well. This is what you will be needing:

and this:

The stuff I linked to are for 25' so you can hide the cables around the room from wherever you would be sitting but you get the idea.

If it gives you hope, I did this with my Fathers compaq laptop to his panasonic 50" plasma and it worked great!

Good luck!

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.

I have a panasonic TC-P50ST30 and viera link will not work with my charter HD DVR cable box. I have a HDMI cable connecting them.What can I do?

Unfortunately, your charter HD DVR cable box is not a Viera link device that is compatible with the TC-P50ST30. Viera Link only works to control Panasonic HDAVI devices that are Viera Link ready (and that use the same Viera link coding) when using the HDMI cable. Thus some Viera link devices of different generations will not work with the same Viera link remote.

The manual for the TC-P50ST30 is available here: . See page 32 for details on the Viera link controls.

I wish that I had better news for you. However, you will need to use separate remotes for your cable box and the TV.

What cable do i need to connect my pannasonic viera px-p42g20b to my compaq presario v6642ea

Hi gmickg,

From what i can see your compaq presario has both hdmi and vga outputs the panasonic viera you have both a vga and hdmi input. Therefore you can use both a vga lead or a hdmi lead. Hdmi also outputs audio therefore it is probably a better choice.

Panasonic Viera link and Foxtel IQ

It is very likely that cross talk does corrupt the link but for Panasonic to "blame" anyone else is not very professional. Anyway, if it worked for 6 months perhaps disconnecting the Foxtel IQ and reestablishing the Viera link with the Panasonic devices then reconnecting the Foxtel IQ for another 6 months of happy viewing. This is not a permanent solution but the alternative doesn't seem to be an option.
