Concerting TV to PC

I purchased a JNC LCD TV in 2007 for my young son because it has lots of features including connection to become a PC (computer). I bought in from Harvey Norman but understand the manufacturer is now out of business. I was wondering if anyone has converted the TV to a PC via the manual's instructions using a VGA cable, audio cable, modem and presume keyboard. Does it work? Also should I buy an old modem or can I use the new wireless modem/routers (whatever that is)? My son needs a computer for school, but they are so expensive (over AUS $1,000). Considering the TV has the capacity to convert to becoming a computer, surely it's more economical to purchase these other items (cables & keyboard) or get the modem 2nd hand? HELP!

    Thank you SO MUCH. I didn't expect to receive a reply at all. I actually phoned Harvey Norman repair employee and he said same as you i.e. TV is monitor only. The PC is the computer which most apparently come with modem built in. These days you buy the PC with a wireless keyboard and mouse included for AUS$800 - AUS$2,000. I think I will shop around for a 2nd hand PC (refurbished) and pray for a free one to come our way. Alternatively, I may just purchase a laptop that has wireless internet.But in any event, I REALLY APPRECIATE your immediate help and solution. Thank you again for replying. Brilliant!

To my understanding,LCD can only be connected as monitor ,not to become a computer itself.if ever it can be use as one, you'll need all the basic of the computer accessories.wireless modem can be use as long as there is a slot for or the unit is compatible for a wireless connection.check first if there is a socket for keyboards and everything before buying.since it can be connected only by vga cable, i assume that it is for monitor use only,unless you want to use two monitors at the same time.

What is the difference between samsung 60J6200 and 60UJ6200 ?

Consumers in the market for a brand new flat screen TV that has all of the latest features for 2015 should consider the Samsung JU6400 series. This 4K resolution UHDTV is one of the best currently offered by the industry-leading brand. The JU6400 offers the same quality picture and sound that Samsung TVs are known for, with several new features that make this model a must-have for any TV enthusiast. Smart Stats

Like its predecessors such as the J6200 and the J6300, this model offers the same LCD flat screen panel for a crystal-clear viewing experience. However, there are several variants in the features for the JU6400 that will make it a worthwhile upgrade from the traditional Full HDTV. 4K Ultra HD resolution is offered on every TV in this series which provides the best possible resolution available today. Other new additions include the Micro Dimming Pro feature which allows the TV to fine tune the image by adjusting the cells in the LCD display. This provides the viewer with perfect lightness and darkness levels on the screen for a true-to-life image.

The Smart TV platform for the JU6400 series is powered by the Tizen operating system. This new update for 2015 provides owners with a complete overhaul from the previous Samsung Smart TV interface. New features include the full Samsung App store that offers access to today's hottest applications such as Facebook, Amazon Prime and Netflix. The menu and browsing options are also much easier to access and use than those offered on previous Smart TV models.

While the Samsung JU6400 is an exceptional option for anyone who wants to purchase a model with better resolution and more futuristic features, it does not include some of the latest features offered by the brand. Innovative extras such as the Smart Control remote and the new Curved screen design are not offered in this particular series. 8.0Great

Check Ju6400 Price


The Samsung JU6400 Series has a lot to offer all types of TV viewers. It is the ideal upgrade for those who are new to Smart TV features and provides a crystal clear image with 4K UHD resolution making it perfect for those who enjoy watching high-definition movies and live events. While you can expect to receive many high-quality features with this higher-end TV model, consumers should be aware of the fact that some of the most recent extras currently available on newer Samsung TV models are not offered on TVs available through this series. Yet for the avid viewer who simply wants a good upgrade, this TV is an excellent choice. I hope this helps answer your question Evgeny.

Dell w3000 has green power on no video just audio only

Firstly i would suggest you to perform Self-Test Feature Check (STFC)
Your LCD TV when used as a computer display through DVI and/or VGA connection provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your LCD TV is functioning properly. If your LCD TV and computer are properly connected but the LCD TV screen remains dark, run the LCD TV self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and the LCD TV.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove both Digital(white connector) and the Analog(blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the LCD TV.
  4. The floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black background) if the LCD TV cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green and the self-test pattern will scroll through the screen continually
This box also appears during normal system operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
Turn off your LCD TV and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the LCD TV.If your LCD TV screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your LCD TV is functioning properly.

OSD Warning Messages
A warning message may appear on the screen indicating that the LCD TV is out of sync range.
See Specifications for the Horizontal and Vertical frequency ranges addressable by this LCD TV. Recommended mode is 1280x 768 @ 60Hz.

Thanks for using fixya technical support. You have a wonderful day

I have an hp pc which do not have insert disk system i had downloaded microsoft office 2007 and after 25 times,i were now required to insert a product key...i really need microsoft now

Well, normal "stripped" laptop comes without extras, which include MS office. With some credit you can instantly get office running (doubt that 2007 will work properly in newer installations, as its become obsolete) In a computer you go to bottom right logo and find all programs. Click it. Most likely you`ll find in a list lot of MS programs that you haven't installed. - or activated. Real life money with a all credit card numbers shoud fix this problem - should you want so.

Whats the device code be for my JNC TV model no. SST-SV32 i need the code for my URC

The JNC TV code is 01961 for most remotes, but we would need to have the make and model of your URC to be sure. Sadly JNC is evidently out of business after selling a lot of TVs in Hong Kong and Australia, so are little help. Hope this works for you:)

The recording from radio that did not want to work in iTunes was made in WAV format. To solve the problem I went to settings and changed recording format to MP3. When I recorded in MP3 format from the radio with my JNC SSFM2 series MP4 player and copied it into iTunes on my computer, iTunes played it without a problem.

Apparently WAV format is used on PC and MP3 is used on Apple Mac.
