It does not sound like a resetting issue. I would contact the seller for an RMA.

I want to connect my windows 7 laptop to panasonic tx 32lxd500 to watch youtube

If you laptop has a vga out and the tv has a vga in use that. Better yet some newer laptops have HDMI output . HDMI would be best if available. You may have to go into display setting on laptop to adjust screen size.

Im trying to connect my laptop to my TV, laptop end is a VGA and tv is HDMI. i also have a cord that does VGA on laptop Component on TV..neither will work.. whats the problem?

Hey Erin, when you mean it does not work as in there is nothing on the screen including audio? With VGA to HDMI (assuming you have the VGA to HDMI adapter) you should only get video since VGA does not support sound. As far as connecting goes its pretty much plug and play. That's also assuming that you have set it to the correct input on your tv and make sure your laptop has proper settings. Go to control panel and go to display. Make sure it recognizes dual monitor. Other than that there really should not be a problem. Look at video input on tv and display settings (OR mobile pc > windows mobility center > connect to a projector or other external display (not under classic view - Vista). I hope this helps. Give me a feedback if not. Good luck Erin.

have you checked the system on another tv. or monitor. if is the same on these then the graphics on the dvr has gone wrong. if its is just on the tv hdmi then you have had the tv on the hdmi for a to longer period and blown the reader board for the hdmi.

Since your TV is not coming with HDMI, the only way you can connected is trough CONVERTER ANALOG TO DIGITAL.

You can buy surface by Internet, or Radio Schack, or Computer Stores.

I was told this would work from a laptop to tv but i cant find where or how to plug into laptop. what out and in should it be and what type of cord? do u have a manual or help list?

I don't really know what you mean but here's my answer:
laptop to TV can be done via VGA or HDMI, HDMI will give also send sound trough the cable to your TV.
both your TV and laptop must support one of these options or it will not work
here is what it looks like:
most laptops should have VGA and most newer ones should have HDMI options
after connecting the cable you can hold windows + p for some basic options

ps: sorry for bad english
