SOURCE: Viera Link not work between two brand new Panasonic devices

You need to select setup from the TV menu then switch the Viera link on. I think retuning must have switched it off.
This worked for me

SOURCE: How do I set up

Cliff, it al depends on what kind of DIRECT TV receiver you have, if it has an HDMI port on the back of the receiver then all you have to do is plug it in and change the input on your TV to HDMI

Enjoy thats a great TV

SOURCE: what kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?

Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

(A DVI port is a digital video out option with ~21 pins and is usually white.)

Im using a 2Wire Gateway DSL connected via ethernet to a Mac G4, I also have a laptop running windows vista and it has strong wi-fi connection, sending packets at optimal levels and speed. BUT Problem


Vista has a well known flaw of not allowing you to easily change access rights after selecting "public network" in the initial network connection screens. The easiest fix is to change the name of your wifi access point, reconnect, and be absolutely certain to select "home network" when the prompt comes up.

The best solution however is to ditch that crummy excuse for an operating system and upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.

How to connect viera link


What is Viera Link? Viera Link allows the control of other Panasonic home AV devices via the television remote control.

By pressing the Viera Link button on the television remote, it is possible to turn on and navigate the menus of other Viera Link equipment. Please note, Viera Link requires an HDMI connection between the television and the external source.

More control functions have been added with each new generation of Viera Link compatible products. However, it is important to note that the newer functions only work if both products are from the same year of manufacture. Therefore, if an older source is used with a newer year of television, only the older functions common to both years will work.

How do I connect my DELL Inspiron 3521 laptop to the HP Photosmart D110 Printer? The laptop is not recognizing the Printer. Whenever we try to download printer software, it says "System Driver cannot...


First of all, what is your Operating System? XP? Windows 7? Windows 8? Are you connecting via Wireless or USB? Is your system 32-bit or 64-bit? If connecting via USB, try different USB ports on the laptop and a different USB cord just to be sure. If you can get into your laptops Device Manager you can go under Action and tell it to scan for hardware changes while the printer is attached to the laptop. Windows 7 & 8 usually have decent Plug and Play features and may pick up the driver.
Are you getting the driver from HP directly? If so, make sure you are matching the Operating system exactly (ex. Windows 8 64-bit/Windows 7 32-bit). You can discover your system type by right clicking on the Computer icon and going to properties. You may also want to try an HP Universal PCL 6 driver if the driver for the actual printer will not download. Save the driver to the desktop or a designated file within the C drive in case your temp folder is corrupt and run it from the local save.
There could be other issues, such as a 3rd party firewall blocking the driver or the Anti-Virus could be an issue as well.
I hope this helps!

Code for connect windows media center to tv


Instead of trying to connect this to your TV via 8-digit code, you should try running an HDMI cord from your computer to the back of your TV. Quality of picture is better, and it streams flawlessly.

When I connect my Advent laptop running windows 7 to my panasonic viera tv via hdmi via a vga to hdmi converter I just get a blank screen, are there laptop or tv settings that I need to change? Chris.


Yes there are a couple of settings which you must change in order for your computer to register your external monitor. on the desktop right click with your mouse and go to personalize, once that opens on the lower left corner click on display, now on the top left corner about the (5) fifth option it should say change display settings, click there. If you do not see two monitors displayed, click on detect, and once you see two monitors click on apply. Now if you want to extend your desktop to the second monitor simply go to the multiple monitor drop down menu and click on extend these displays, and viola there you have it. Be aware these settings are only meant for Windows 7.

Hi there
I've just looked at that TV model, and it appears that your TV does not support a separate audio connection for HDMI sockets. It also appears that your laptop model has a issue with sending audio via HDMI. Are you running Linux, or windows?
Hope this helps
