Question about Samsung HP-P5091 50 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

PC connection I have seperately connected my PC and my laptop using the VGA connection and no picture on the PDP even when I select the 'Source' function on my remote. I have used the menu on the AV1, TV and HDMI and the PC name is greyed out no amount of friiging with the controls gives me access to the PC. I have used 'info, menu, mute, power on' to get to the reset but apart from resetting to my own settings, the PC name is still greyed out. I noticed when I pushed warm boot on my PC, the plasma screen flickered. Incidentally I have had this PDP for 2 weeks and when i first plugged in my PC it worked great. I also setup PIP and had my PC as the main screen with the TV as a smaller screen in the right hand corner. Next day no picture.

Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

I have a Panasonic Viera tx l37g20b and i am attempting to connect it through a VGA cable. I have connected the laptop to the TV, but there is no option in the TV's menu to select the laptop as the input...


You should have a SOURCE select button on the remote control to select the input source. This should allow you to select the VGA input as the input source. You will also need to make sure your laptop is configured to output a signal via the external VGA port.

TRYING TO INPUT LAPTOP TO RGB IN,AUDIO WORKS BUT VISUALY "NO SIGNAL"


Reading the online manual - You should have the laptop connected by VGA - PC input
VGA Connection you need to select the correct input on the TV
  • Select the RGB-PC input source on the TV using the INPUT button on the remote control.
you will need to set the laptop up to output to the VGA output, to do this - varies by different manufacturers - But often F4 or F5, with the FN key selects the VGA output - have a look at the F keys across the top of the machine and see if you can see a picture of a screen - then use the FN and that F key together to toggle between display it will change to <Laptop Screen Only><Laptop screen and VGA output><VGA output only> not necessarily in that order.

Pc connect to plasma tv pioneer pdp hd5070


Depending on your graphics card you may want to try a digital lead hdmi/dvi.

Also remember you will have to change settings for your graphics card.

If it will do dual view or clone desktop then select it but set your resolution to 800x600 just to start.
If you go too high the tv or computer may not display or say out of range

vga to tc vga has been known to be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of results but for the most part they are good esp if you use a good quality cable and not one of the many cheap ones that are about..

Connecting my laptop to my samsung tele


Most common problem is the VGA cable. Make sure you have the 15 pin VGA Monitor cable.

1. Switch off the TV & Notebook
2. Connect the VGA cable to the TV and Notebook.
3. Switch on the Notebook. Set the resolution to 800 x 600 Pixels (Go to Control Panel - Adjust Screen Resolution). Then go to Advanced settings and set 'Screen Refresh rate' as 60 hz in the Monitor tab,
4. Switch on the TV. Go to Source button from the TV remote and select PC as input source. Alternatively, you can go to 'Menu' and select 'PC' as input source. If the connection is made properly, PC option will NOT be GREY anymore.
5. Press Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depending on which Notebook brand you have)

Connecting my Laptop to the Television


Hi,

There is no need to select any channel on the TV to watch the video from the laptop, rather you need to select at which external source/connector the laptop is connected to. These area:
1. HDMI
2. D-Sub (HD-15)
3. VGA
4. S-Video
5. USB
6. RS-232

Often used are either the: a) VGA, or the b) S-Video. Of course likewise to be connected with the Video would be the audio out of the laptop (green) to Audio INput of the TV.

To your post of "PC audio input for", they (blue) are used to plug in any any audio source external to the PC such as a cassette deck, an analog audio from a camera, from an analog mixer and others of the same variety.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
