Philips 42" HDMI connection to VGA on laptop connection problems

Went about getting a cable to connect my philips 42" hd tv to my dell laptop.My laptop only has a vga connection and does not have a dvi connection.Went to a couple of computer and tv stores and was told they are not made. Checked on line and got a hdmi to vga direct cable.I am still having problems getting the picture to change from laptop to tv.Constant black screen when hdmi channel is switched on and laptop connected. FN and F8 pressed to swap from laptop monitor to external monitor and screen just flicks to black and back to normal screen and no change to tv screen.
Any information would be grateful

    my tv is not exact same model as yours mate but it is a phillips i think it might be a fault with all their hdmi ports on tellys i personally think it is a joke paying almost £1000 and not getting the full potential it has disgusted me

    I was speaking to a guy in the IT department where i work and he says the problem is the signal from the vga on the laptop is an analogue signal and the signal the tv needs is a digital signal.Because phillips dont have an analogue connector in their tvs (as most others do) your laptop needs to have a dvi connection.But there is a convertor you can buy to change the signal.**** that im not buying a new laptop or tv or converter theres a recession on at the moment ha!

Why dont u just use the vga input and select vga from your input selection. it should work just fine. if not, email me back.

Kenzmailroom: the whole problem is that the philips tv's DO NOT have a vga input so that is really an irrelevant "solution"
I think the best solution would just use S-video cable (assuming your laptop has an S-video out).

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!

One thing is that unless it is usb you should always have the devices powered DOWN before connecting them via" wire electric data cables". it only takes 3 static volts of electricity to damage a circuit board. when you zap you buddy when you wear sox its 20 to 30,000 volts of static electricity so 3 volts would not be known let alone felt or seen. Power down and you will be well not you .
