    I have tried using the component inputs, but the screen won't switch over. It tries the various HD modes (720 1040 etc), but no picture or sound coming through.

    I have tried a variety of DVI-HDMI cables and I cannot get the TV to show a picture. It does sense the input and will switch to 1040 resolution, but just won't show a picture or any sound. It is close - but so far, no cigar! - Terrible Toll

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 .

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.

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

My sansung pn50a460s4dxza says it is 3d ready. how can i use this feature on my tv.

Your tv is a 2008 model, legacy 3d tv and requires a lot more than a current 3d HDTV does to view 3d. Today with a current 3d HDTV, Normally you only need a 3d source like a 3d Bluray movie and 3d glasses from Samsung and a HDMI cable connection from bluray player to HDTV. See below for your TV. You need a PC and IR emitter and Samsung 3d glasses plus user selected options on the tv.
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV How do Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs work?
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs are enabled by Digital Light Processing (DLP(R)) or Plasma Display Panel (PDP) engines that are capable of very fast refresh rates (120Hz). The inherent speed of these display technologies enables high quality stereoscopic 3-D by alternatively displaying left and right eye images. The display is synchronised with 3-D shutter glasses to provide the observer with a vivid perception of depth.
How do I connect my PC to a Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV?
The DVI output from the PC's graphics card must be connected to the TV's 3-D compatible HDMI port using a DVI-to-HDMI cable (or a HDMI cable plus a DVI to HDMI adaptor).
Alternatively, some newer graphics cards have a HDMI port instead of a DVI port. In this case, simply use a HDMI cable to connect the PC directly to the TV.
On all models, the 3-D compatible HDMI port is identified by the letters "DVI". (eg, "HDMI 3/DVI IN" or "HDMI 1/DVI IN")
What other equipment do I need to enjoy 3-D on my 3-D Ready HDTV?
  • Windows PC with DVI output
  • Compatible 3-D Shutter glasses and IR emitter with VESA compatible sync connector
How do I connect the IR emitter to the 3-D TV to support wireless 3-D shutter glasses?
The IR emitter should be connected to the "3D SYNC OUT" socket. The emitter should be placed on top of the TV with the LEDs facing towards the room. How do I turn the TV into 3-D mode?
Ensure that the TV source is set to "HDMI 3/DVI" (or "HDMI 1/DVI" for 720p models).
Plasma HDTVs Press the Tools button and select 3D Effect. Update from Off to Mode1.

There are adaptors available to convert HDMI signal to other standards. You will lose quality in picture and sound but you can get HDMI to RCA converter. If your TV has a DVI is still a digital input so will yield better quality.

You can buy an HDMI to DVI adapter (around 20$) to connect your HDMI computer cable to your TV. You will need separates audios cables, right and left, to bring the sound to the TV.

Just bought blue ray player I have a hitachi plasma tv model pw1 32pd5000 how can I get blue ray to work with tv theres no hd outlet at the back of tv but it is hd compatible

The TV most likely will have component and a DVI connector on it if it doesn't have a HDMI connector. If the Blu-ray player has component connectors on it use them as they will give you up to a 1080i picture which is all this model of Hitachi supports anyway. If the player doesn't have component connections then you can get a HDMI to DVI converter cable so you can connect it to your TV. You will need a cable that looks like this...

Sony KF50we60 hdmi-dvi sound cuts when plugging into a ht-sf2300

DVI = HDMI without the audio connectors. So basically you need to connect your audio in some different way, PS3s allow you to keep your video signal as HDMI and change the Audio signal to component, so that is one way or doing it, not sure if the blue ray players allow you to do this though.

Connecting my computer

If both your tv and computer has VGA connectors you need a VGA cable. If both have DVI connectors you need a DVI-connector. If your TV only has HDMI I believe you can use a DVI to HDMI converter plug.

For the manual first check out the manufacturers pages. Many have the manuals for download to save on production costs by not printing the manual. You may also try to google it. Search like this:
