I'm trying to connect my Panasonic tv42PV30 to my laptop . This is a picture of the back of my TV and the front view . I hope that helps


The TH-42PV30 has a VGA port (that's the one labeled PC). If your laptop has a VGA output, then you need a VGA cable and a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter or cable. (Depending on the adapter, you might need a 3.5 MM audio cable or an RCA audio cable.) Connect the cables with the TV and the laptop off. Then turn on the TV and set it to the PC input before you turn on the laptop. For most versions of the Windows OS, once the laptop is on, right click on the desktop (anywhere with no icons or running programs). You'll see a pop up menu. Select the line "Display Settings". Check if the new "monitor" is detected. Then you can set the display settings for dual or single monitor modes. (A few laptops hide this under Graphics Properties in this menu.)

If the TV is not identified, you may need to access the BIOS and enable the external video port. (Depending on the manufacturer of the laptop, you'll need to press F1, <Esc>, F2, F10 or Delete at the manufacturer's splash screen as the laptop starts up. It's easy to miss the timing. Just try again; I usually hit the key multiple times immediately after turning on the system.)

If your laptop doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need a converter for the type of port to the VGA port. Many laptops have HDMI ports; in that case you'll need something like this: http://www.amazon.com/PETHV-converter-3-5mm-Stereo-Converter/dp/B003O55U8K . Note: HDCP content (commercial Blu-ray or DVDs) will not be displayed on any of these converters. You'll need an HDMI cable, audio output cable and VGA cable in addition to the converter. The same steps as above will be needed when you connect the devices.

I hope this helps.

How long does it take to answer my question? Cannot program cable converter to TV


Most converter boxes do not require programming. Its coax cable into converter then out of the converter into the tv with either depending on the type of input, coax, RCA cables or HDMI. The TV will need to be on the correct input of whatever source you will be using to view the channels off the converter. IE using HDMI cable you need to select HDMI on the tv to view. without the model of the converter and tv this is a close as I can get you.

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

Connect my laptop to tv with a sound


Your computer may have come with cables to do just that. If not, you have options:

For video, I would check your TV inputs to see if it has a VGA port, since that would be the easiest. You can also get VGA to RCA or S-Video converters online as well if your TV does not have a VGA port. Almost all TV's these days have RCA inputs.

For audio, you can get a headphone jack (3.5mm) to RCA converter.

If you can't find the converters at your local electronics store, just google VGA to RCA and headphone to RCA.

Once you have the necessary cables connected to your TV, your computer will recognize that it has been connected to an external video source. I'm not sure, but I think it is either key combination Fn+F6 or F7 to perform a monitor switch. You can also right-click on the desktop and select properties (or personalize in vista). Then switch to the settings tab (or Display settings in vista) and click on the alternate display.

Connect Laptop to TV


It depends on what kind of TV you have. If you have a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, it may have a VGA connection already installed. If that is the case, all you need is a standard VGA cable to connect from your notebook to your TV.

If you have a TV without a VGA connection you will need a scan converter to convert your signal from VGA to RCA or composite video signal. These can be purchased online or from electronics stores like Radio Shack. You plug your VGA connection from the computer to the scan converter, then RCA or composite video cables from the converter to the TV.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

Watch laptop movies on TV?


What you would need is a VGA to RCA converter cable. Something like this. Once hooked up, use your Fn key combination to switch the view from the internal monitor on the laptop to the external monitor, now your TV.
