Question about Philips 60PP9202 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Hooking up computer to philips 60pp935217 AV5 HDTV connector?

Yes i tried attaching my computer to the philips 60pp935217 AV5 input section. by connecting monitor plug to the same monitor plug thats on the back of the television panel.

when i start the computer, the video works just fine, shows the boot up, and windows it loading but once it gets into windows all i get is horizontal line gaps of green, blue, and yellow squiggling on the screen whenever i try to access AV5 video when i switch to AV1 the tv comes on, an able to watch tv, an when i select other AV#'s they tend to work as well for the components i have them assigned. but whenever i go to AV5 i dont see my windows platform. just squiggly lines.

can i just connect monitor wire from computer display card to the HDTV input? or do i need to have a video card that has HDTV output and connect the wire from that to the back panel of the TV's AV5 input?////

please help?

    ok originally i had my computer up an running, desktop sorry. with the video card i had, i used both a monitor and used the monitor plug on the back of the HDTV as an extended monitor. so when computer was up an running, i had 2 screens. on monitor was screen one and the HDTV was screen 2. i am not trying to watch tv through my computer. i want to use the philips HDTV as a monitor thats all. i was hoping i could just plug in the HDTV as the monitor without having to setup an additional monitor. or do i have to have both operational?

    i then, disconnected everything and put the computer in the bedroom. but now i built another tower a similiar tower/desktop
    and thought that i would just put that one out in the living room. and hook that one up to the HDTV but i forgot how to go about doing it.

    i remember having the monitor hooked up as screen 1 an HDTV was extended screen. but this new tower that i built i dont have monitor for it thats why i was hoping i could just plug the monitor wire that can go from the back of the computer to the HDTV AV5 since its the same cord that a monitor uses yes?

    like i said.. the HDTV when switched to AV5, you see the dos bootup like screen, then it goes into loading windows... but right after that poof it just goes squiggly lines i can't make out anything to see the settings to adjust the settings... its impossible to see.

    i lost both the manual an the original remote to the tv, so i am using universal remote at moment. so not sure how to turn on the HDTV settings.

    with universal remote,
    maybe i need to use menu system to setup the AV5 setting?

Hi Roger,

Initially, pls try lowering the screen resolution of your PC. This can be done at the Display Properties/Settings tab and then move the slider of the Screen resolution towards the left, Apply OK. In some instances, you need to also lower down the Screen refresh rates in the Monitor tab of the Advanced Properties.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, then other methods can be considered.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again Roger,

    My initial post was in response to your description of "just squiggly lines." If you have tried lowering your PC's screen resolution pls post back results.

    In your current setup of the 2nd/new PC using the Philips 60PP935217 monitor, pls try to boot in safe mode which should normally allow you to adjust/lower the screen resolution.

    Cheers.

You don't say what king of computer you have. Laptop or Desktop?
Most laptops have a monitor output jack but they can only run either that or the laptop display, not both. To run the TV off that jack there is usually a keyboard key that switch it back and forth. If the laptop supports dual monitors, you can enable the second one by going to the display setup page.
Most desktops only support one monitor, so you would have to dedicate your TV to the computer.
Many video boards have a composite video output (little yellow jack) that can go to an AV input on the TV and is usually the simplest way to go for video only applications.
Hope Ya Fix It!

I dont no where to plug in the wirers on my tower


Your Dell desktop computer will come with all of the equipment you need to hook it up and get it started right in the box with the main CPU. You will have all of the peripheral equipment and cables that you need to connect your desktop to your keyboard, mouse, monitor and, most importantly, a wall outlet or surge protector to provide it with power. The entire hook-up process shouldn't take more than a few minutes. Connect your computer monitor to your Dell computer using the included blue VGA cable. This VGA cable plugs into the blue video input on the back of your Dell computer and into the identical input on the back of your monitor. Plug your monitor's attached power cable into a wall outlet or surge protector. Plug in your keyboard and mouse. Dell computers ship with USB keyboards and mice, so take the USB cables that are permanently connected to each device and plug each of them into one of the available USB ports on the back of your Dell computer. You can use the ports on the front of your computer if you like, but as your keyboard and mouse don't get unplugged with any kind of frequency you may want to conserve those inputs for removable devices like flash drives. Connect your Dell computer to a wall outlet or surge protector using the included power cable. The power cable plugs into the power outlet on the back of your Dell computer and into a regular power outlet on a compatible device. Press "Power" on your Dell computer as well as on your monitor. Your computer will turn on and begin to boot into Windows.
Hope this helps. For reference, you may want to read this section describing the cables and connectors coming from the power supply, and/or this section describing the connections on the motherboard. Motherboards and system cases vary. Your motherboard may not have all the items I mention here, and the same holds true for your case. Furthermore, you may find that your case and motherboard don't match in every situation; for example, some cases have a turbo button and some do not, and some motherboards have a connection for a turbo button and some don't. Watch out for "off by one" errors when attaching cables to pin headers. In particular, some motherboards combine several pin connectors into a larger block. The individual connections are the same, the motherboard just physically groups the pins together into a larger matrix. Be careful when working with these as making a mistake is much easier to do. Refer to the manual. If the system is in a tower case, it is much easier to perform this procedure with the case resting on its side. LEDs have two wires and are unidirectional, so they will not work if attached backwards. You need to connect the positive lead from the case to the positive pin on the motherboard, and the same with the negative. Unfortunately, the case connector almost never has the positive and negative labeled. Fortunately, attaching them backwards will usually not cause any damage; the LED just won't work. One tip you can use: most cases employ for each LED one colored wire (green, yellow, red, orange, blue) and another wire that is either black or white. When this is the case, usually the colored wire is positive (signal) and the black or white wire is negative (ground). This isn't always true, but it's better than a random guess in most cases.

I am trying to hook up my philips hdtv to the roku. I attached the two via an HDMI cord and that works great. I just dont know how to plug in my speakers.... there is no where to attach it to the roku. So...


This tv has speakers, use those. If you want to use external ones connect them to the audio output RCA connectors at the rear of the Roku - the red and white ones.

Idk if my tv is digtal ready it says its hd


The TV will provide an HD picture with a set top box connected to the HD input (AV4 or AV5). It does not have a digital tuner (only a NTSC analog tuner).

The manual is available here: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/51pw9303/51pw9303_dfu_aen.pdf . See appendix B on page 58 for the specifications.

I hope this helps.

How do I connect my Wii to my Yamaha RX-A700 receiver? I am running everything through my receiver....Is it just a matter of connecting color to color wires at rear of unit...ie AV5 input?


are you just trying to get the sound? Use a pair of audio in jacks like av5. (usually red and white inserts in jack and the color of the plug ends) if you have video switching and have hooked up a video out to your TV then you could also use a composite video connection (usually yellow insert in jack and yellow plug on wire) to send the picture to the TV. A higher signal source would be component (red,green & blue) or HDMI if your reciever has that level of signal swithing.(HDMI is audio and video in 1 cable)

that input is called DVI digital video interface it is only for video. there should be some red and white composite input jacks for the audio near the DVI connector. you will need to hookup the red and white cables from the tv to the cable box or dvd player or whatver you are using. good luck

ViewSonic VG2030wm speakers not working


you are unable to get an image on your ViewSonic monitor, first check that the necessary cables are attached correctly and that the proper drivers are installed. ViewSonic offers drivers for download directly through its website (see Resources).

Some LCD monitors use a VGA input while others take advantage of the newer DVI interface to provide a connection to PCs (some ViewSonic monitors offer both types). When connecting your monitor for the first time, you'll need the right type of cable for both your monitor and computer. In some cases an adapter may be necessary to convert the DVI signal from your monitor to work in a VGA input on your PC.

Check that the VGA or DVI cable is tightly attached to the back of your monitor and to the back of your PC. Use the small thumb screws on the ends of the connectors to keep everything tightened in place, which will prevent the cable from getting loose.

ViewSonic monitors also use a power cable to plug into a power source. If the power light does not comes on, check that the power cable is inserted fully into the back of the monitor and that it is plugged into a working wall outlet or a reliable surge protector.

I have an DVI to HDMI cable running to my Playstation 3. The playstation reconizies the connection. When I search the tv for the connection I connot find it.. The back of the tv says the DVI input is...


Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have the same model TV and I cannot get anything to display from a DVI video source. Anything "pure" HDMI like a DVD player, XBOX 360, or media streamer, work fine. I now have a PC connected to the TV. The PC has an HDMI port and works fine on 2 LCD TVs I have at home but not this one. I'm starting to think it's a wierd HDCP thing.

Computers has power but will not turn on monitor,fans on blue light on, yellow light constant. cd slide opens and closes normal.


First the obvious, monitor is on? Cables are connected securely to back of monitor and PC? Power cable/power adapter are all connected and plugged in? If a power adapter is used, it will feel warm.
.
I am assuming it was working on some point and then stopped.

If you are getting power to monitor and it's power light is on, then I'd suggest a problem with the video output on PC

If you are not getting power to monitor or it's light is not on, the problem is with the monitor.It may have gone out on you. Try attaching to another computer.
