Re: connection for tv cable to hitachi 42" plasma Tv

There is no cable slot. the monitor is not a receiver. it has no tuner in it. it will need a signal from a tuner box. and that must be fed to the tv with an hdmi cable or a dvid cable for hd to work. see your manual for further information on cables. see your cable supplier for information on hd boxes available in your area. if you do not buy hd service, you will not get an hd signal. so you will see little difference from a non hd device. your dvd player may have hd capabilities, but will also need the same cable to deliver true hd signal.
the good news is that its fixable by using the right equipment.
good luck

Hitachi ultravision model number 42hds69 cable problem.

Usually you need a decoder to receive "Cable" With your "Cable" usually you connect the Cable antenna, to the Cable "Box" form the "Box" to the Audio Visual EXTERNAL inputs, in the back of the TV. Now IF your TV can receive the "Cable" directly, then you would have to connect the Antenna, into the rear of the TV, now you would go to the "Tuning" section, and, the TV, would automatically "Search" for any available channels. They would then, be displayed at the end of the scan. Please find a user manual below, this will help you tune in, IF you can. If you cannot, you will have to get a cab;e "Box" and a remote. Hookup to the TV, from the "Box" to the TV, via, Audio and Video cables. You use the "Box's" remote to change channels and volume. You first must set the TV's Volume, & picture setting, the TV, is basically just used as a "Monitor" for the "Box". Hope this helps..

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...

My husband moved the tv from one table to another, and now the color is all screwed up. Mostly purple and green. What's the problem? It's an Hitachi 42" plasma tv.

Usually this is caused by unproperly hooked up component video cables. Check the green, blue and red component video cables on the tv and on the device (cablebox) to hopefully solve the issue. Sometimes one just pulls loose also

Is there someway to hook up our Hitachi 42HDS69 to our laptop

Your computer should have a DVI port to make this possible since your TV dont have a VGA port. If your computer have a DVI port then an HDMI/DVI cable is all you need. This allows you to connect you computer or laptop to you tv through the HDMI connection on your tv.
