Do you tried the "Input" or "source" button in the remote control?

My os is vista how can connect to my jvc flat tv as a second monitor?


How you connect to your tv is not so much a matter of OS as it is dependent on what type of video connections are available on your laptop whether RGB, S-Video, mini-display port to DVI, or HDMI.
Once the tv is connected then you will need to right click your desktop and choose whether you want the tv to be a clone display (desktop to show on both your laptop screen and the tv, or use the extended desktop setting to have half the screen be on the laptop and the other half to be on flat screen tv.

I want to use my television as a computer screen. How do I switch the television to proper mode?


Look for a button on the remote or the TV itself labeled Source or Input. This should let you change the input between TV, AV, HDMI (on some TVs), and PC. Just press the button repeatedly or use the up/down arrows.

Before setting the input to PC (VGA), turn off the TV and the computer. Then connect the VGA cable (M-M) and the audio cable (a 3.5 mm M/M cable, if you plan to use the TV speakers) between the two units. Next turn on the TV and set the input to VGA. Then turn on the computer. (This is if you are using the VGA or D Sub 15 connection.) For a desktop, if you do not have another monitor connected, the TV should automatically be detected and the resolution set with any Windows OS (XP and later). However, you may need to reset the resolution and the refresh rate. For Windows 7, right click on the display and choose Screen Resolution.

For a laptop, you may need to enable the video port in the BIOS. Accessing this depends on the manufacturer of the computer motherboard. (Often Esc, F1 or F2 is the key to press after turning on the computer but before the OS loads. This can be tricky to time correctly.)

With a laptop or a desktop with another monitor attached, you will need to tell the computer how to deal with the multiple monitors. (Extend, monitor 1 only (or laptop internal monitor), monitor 2 only (external monitor), or dual display.) For my HP laptop with Win7, I choose Graphics Properties instead of Screen Resolution. There may be a keyboard Fn shortcut to access this.

Some TVs will accept a PC signal on the HDMI port (directly from an HDMI port on the computer or via a DVI to HDMI cable). Not all TVs do this. (Without the model for your TV, I can't confirm if this will work. If it doesn't, it is because of the differences between the PC output signal and that of set top boxes (cable or blu-ray players).

I hope this helps.

The tech from India is fairly correct. Newer TV's (LCD, LED, Plasma) have most of their cost in the screen. In fact most companies will straight up replace a broken panel TV rather than fix it because its more cost effective. I would advise you do the same and get a new TV. Sorry for the bad news!

On the MacBook, check the Displays pane in System Preferences to make sure the settings for the external monitor are correct. It's possible that the system is not recognizing the adapter or it has the wrong resolution setting, so it's not sending out any signal that the adapter can use.

Many of the better DVD players and high-end video game consoles use HDMI. You can use one of those as a test signal generator to check the TV.

You may get better results if you use a DVI-HDMI converter, although you would need to get the DisplayPort to DVI cable. This will avoid converting to analog VGA signals and back to digital again.

We were playing a video game on the pansonic th-42px75u tv and it cut off. Looks as though it is getting no power. Changed outlets and checked still no power. Does it have a fuse that could be replaced?


If the power indicator is totally innactive then a new power supply will fix it.
If the power indicator falshes a code usually red then you will need to tell me exactly how many times it flashes.

Sorry but seams to be the plasma panel defective. If it's vertical allways when i fond like that was the plasma panel. You have few chances to be one connector on the addres board. Open the tv and check them.
