Question about Flat Panel Televisions

Laptop to HD plasma display connection

Our office has a Panasonic HD plasma TV (model TH-42PX64) with 2 HDMI jacks and we would like to use it as an accessory display for presentations from the laptop. It does not have a RGB or PC jack. The manual indicated that a PC to DVI cable would connect them however there is not a DVI jack on this TV. Purchased this cable online (recommended by Radio Shack Store locally) and it required a DVI to HDMI adaptor (purchased at another Radio Shack store) and it did not adapt to DVI male due to no plave for two pins on top and bottom of flat pin on male end. Called 1 800 Radio Shack and they recommended a PC to DVI adaptor and a DVI to HDMI cable. Purchased online and it connects correctly, however the signal does not transfer from a regular desktop output to the TV nor from the laptop to the TV and it seems to interfer with the display switching of the laptop accessory display toggle. Any ideas are appreciated!

Have a Panasonic TH-37PX60U tv - can I hook it up to a HD Satellite receiver - have a Bell hd but don't get any reception


Your plasma tv will display HD content when you connect an HD source (Blu Ray Disk, Sony PS3 / PS4 or Xbox 360, HD Cable Box, HD satellite, etc) via the TV's HDMI1, HDMI2, Component1, Component2 jacks or if you connect a UHF/VHF TV antenna (not cable box, etc.) to the "Ant" connector *and* you're close enough to a broadcaster with HD content to view.

Using any other input will produce only the lesser quality SD video signals. Review the manual - linked below - to help you connect the components you have.

Panasoics plasma viera rv will not auto tune telling us to insert aerial already in Model TH-P50X20Z


The manual for this TV can be found here. If you are watching broadcast television, or cable TV service that does NOT require use of a set top "cable box" tuner, you would connect the coax cable from the UHF / VHF antenna or cable into the ANT cable connector on the rear of the TV as shown on page 8 & 9 in the manual.

You would then tell the TV setup to scan for available channels as shown on page 12 of the manual.

If you are using a seperate tuner - like those supplied by Cable TV, Dish, DirectTV, Satellite, etc. you should use (1) the HDMI 1, 2 or 3 inputs (HD) 720P and up; (2) the RGB inputs of AV2 for best picture quality 720P or better (HD), (3 & 4) the AV1 & AV3 (on the side next to HDMI) for 480i and possibly 480P (SD) and finally the ANT connector for 480i. If you have a computer that offers VGA jack to connect to an external monitor, use the PC connector on th erear of the TV to send it HD images.

Page 27 & 28 detail manual channel editing.

Good luck!

We have connected our asus K52J lap top to our panasonic viera plasma TH-P50V20A via a HDMI cable . We have picture ON THE TV but sound from our lap top only. How do we get sound from our TV


Hi there
I've just looked at that TV model, and it appears that your TV does not support a separate audio connection for HDMI sockets. It also appears that your laptop model has a issue with sending audio via HDMI. Are you running Linux, or windows?
Hope this helps

Can i connect my panasonic viera th-42px8ou plasma tv,to my vista desk top? my tv has hdmi on it,my vista tower also says it has 1 hdmi connector on the back of it


You can buy an HDMI to DVI adapter (around 20$) to connect your HDMI computer cable to your TV. You will need separates audios cables, right and left, to bring the sound to the TV.

How do I connect my Panasonic SC-HTB500 sound bsr to my Panasonic TH-42PX75U television with an HDMI cable?


If you have a set top box (blu-ray, dvd, cable) with HDMI Out, then you need a pair of HDMI cables. Connect one from the HDMI Out of the set top box to the HDMI In of the sound bar. Then connect the HDMI Out of the sound bar to the HDMI In of the TV.

If you only want to use the sound bar as an external speaker system for the TV, then you should get a digital audio cable (fiber optic cable). Connect this to the Digital Audio Out on the TV (below HDMI ports) and to the Digital Audio In of the sound bar.

I hope this helps. You can find the manual of the TV here: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Televisions/Plasma-TVs/model.TH-42PX75U . The TV also has analog (RCA) audio out jacks labeled Prog Out on the bottom left of the connection panel; the sound bar however doesn't have RCA audio in jacks.

Cindy Wells
(since there are no HDMI out jacks on the TV, there is no other way to connect the sound bar.)

When i connect my hp laptop to my panasonic plasma tv thru a hdmi connection the screen resolution is to large and a i get no sound


Hi, you probably won't get audio from the HDMI port on a laptop post the exact model so I can check for you, you can get an adapter from the audio out to the in on the TV, as for the resolution, lower the resolution on the laptop before connecting it, simply right click the mouse anywhere on the desktop, then left click on properties then settings, then pull the resolution level to 800x600 save by clicking apply and OK , try a few settings to get the highest resolution the TV can display correctly.
Thanks

Sony Viao HDMI to Panasonic Plasma TV HDMI Input handshake


Try all of your HDMI inputs, one may be rated at the correct voltage to be able to display the video. The offical part that Panasonic was giving for this was PDPHDMIKIT, its basically a HDMI extender that regulates the voltage. The part is still available online, try partstore.com or andrews-electronics.
