Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Tv to pc

Ok i have a vizio plasma and i just bought a graphics card with hdmi out. I can use that to hook up to my tv , but my computer is about 8 ft away . SO i was thinking to get a longer wire so to not make wires too visable. i was thinking about 30 ft to work around molding and door ways. Would the picture still be good as long as i buy the right wire.

You should be able to run up to 50ft without signal loss. get a decent quality cable though with shielding.

    Try right click on desktop, then properties, go to settings then advanced. One of the tabs in there will allow you to change the output type.

I want to hook my vizio tv up to my computer what cords are needed?


Likely standard VGA ... unless you have an HD card in your computer ... I got one for mine in order to play blu ray after I bought a blu ray drive for my computer. In that case I needed an HDMI cable. HDMI passes both the video and the audio, otherwise you need to connect also a stereo audio cable between your sound card output and the tv input, close to the computer VGA connection.

So:

I just hooked up my HP Pavilion 9000 Laptop to my Vizio TV and put the TV on correct setting. It is not working on the TV, any ideas? I went on Display setup and kept trying to connect but it says the...


If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.

I have a 50 in vizio plasma. just hooked up a psp3 for the blue ray, but the input only says 480. What gives? shouldn't this be 1080? I can't find an ajustment on the menu screen on my tv?


What you need to do is hook up your PS3 to a different tv. Then in Display setting on the PS3 change it to 480p. Hook it up to your vizio and while on the ps3, change it back to 1080p. Most Vizios don't have a Progressive scan that adjusts to the output settings of the PS3 (or other device) .

VIZIO VO42LF says no signal when connect to PC after power on/off


Could be a sensitivity problem, have you tried to switch tv modes back and forth, sometimes if you do that it will save you from restarting the computer. I had a tv about 10 years ago that had a sensitivity issue, went to see about fixing it, unfortunately, the tv brand was no longer in the country and user service parts were not available.
