Can I connect my fire hd 10 to my tv using a cable.


It seems as if it is possible to connect your Fire HD 10 to a TV via a HDMI cable. In order to do this you will either need:
  • Amazon HDMI adapter for fire tablets
  • Micro HDMI/ USB to HDMI cable
Here is a helpful article with ways to connect to a TV and links to the types of adapters on amazon.

For my 50v500 tv built in 2004 is there an HDMI cable or adaptor to connect for signal?


If there is a socket at its back marked as HDMI, the set should have capability to receive HDMI signals, provided the HDMI firmware has been installed to it successfully. You can connect it with an HDMI cable, with any other external equipment having HDMI output, and select the TVs' input to HDMI.

How do i get the hdmi working


HDMI start by putting one end of the HDMI cable in the HDMI socket on the tv, then the other end in the HDMI socket on the device your are going to use. It can be a decoder, an apple tv or something else that needs an HDMI connection to the tv to work.
Secondly find the remote control and push the input button then there should be a picture on the screen with different possibilities for input. Click where it says HDMI.
You should be connected now,

How do i hook my compaq preario cq56 laptop to my hitachi hd plasma tv


The laptop looks like it has an external VGA port only and without knowing what model of Hitachi tv it is. It is quite possible the tv may have a VGA input in which case a standard VGA cable will allow you to connect the laptop to the tv. Otherwise you will need one of the following depending on what connections the tv has:

1. VGA to HDMI cable: http://www.amazon.com/Video-Cable-Black-Support-Necessary/dp/B002TUC64W/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1355697785&sr=1-1&keywords=vga+to+hdmi+cable

2. VGA to RGB cable: http://www.amazon.com/eForCity-Premium-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B0012SPNII/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1355697879&sr=1-1&keywords=vga+to+rgb+cable

If you do not have an HDMI input, you will also need to get an audio cable as well. Standard mini-stereo audio cables should allow you to connect the laptop to the tv.

HDMI connectors..Where are they?


Greetings Jazzne1,

Looking at your users manual your television is "HD-Ready" which means it will be able to display images in an high definition resolution. But because of the age of this unit HDMI was not a standard format to provide the HD signal.

You should be able to connect an HD video source to your television with the Y, Pb, Pr Component connectors. The downside to this is most standard up-scanning DVD players available will only up-scan through the HDMI connector, but you should be able to connect HD digital broadcast boxes and cable and satellite services with these connections

Regrettably there really isn't a way to install an HDMI connector on a television "after market".

I hope this helps.
Jon
