SOURCE: connection for tv cable to hitachi 42" plasma Tv

there is no cable slot. the monitor is not a receiver. it has no tuner in it. it will need a signal from a tuner box. and that must be fed to the tv with an hdmi cable or a dvid cable for hd to work. see your manual for further information on cables. see your cable supplier for information on hd boxes available in your area. if you do not buy hd service, you will not get an hd signal. so you will see little difference from a non hd device. your dvd player may have hd capabilities, but will also need the same cable to deliver true hd signal.
the good news is that its fixable by using the right equipment.
good luck

In the video setting go down to reset. You will only need minor adjustment after a reset.

SOURCE: Connecting laptop to LG Plasma via vga cable

you should have a button that you have to press to get it to switch over, on mine i have to press and hold the Fn key then press the F4 key might not be the same on yours but you should have a f something key that has what looks like a little screen on it that is to switch the output if that does not work try hooking up your laptop just like before, and then restart it. good luck

Also try keeping you tv off until your laptop is connected then turn your tv on so your laptop can reconize it.

Your laptop probably has the option to display:
* laptop screen only
* external screen only
* both screens

If your laptop has a key (usually BLUE) labelled FN,
check the other keys that also have BLUE labelling.
Hold down FN, and press the appropriate other BLUE key,
to cycle through the above 3 output options.

I have connected my laptop to my element tv via vga cord;sound is comin frm laptop..want the sound frm TV; THEN, I have a headset/microphone ... can I connect my headset/microphone to the TV?


If you need to get sound from your TV, you should have a sound input socket in your TV. If you have that you can connect an audio cable from your sound sound socket to your TV.
The second option is that your laptop and your TV should have HDMI ports. If its there, you can use an HDMI cable(instead of VGA cable)to connect the two. With HDMI cable, you will get both video and audio through that single cable.

If you need more help please let me know

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.

How do i connect my pc with only a vga cable to my hitachi tv (model #l40a105a)?


You can buy a vga to hdmi cable from monoprice.com Although this will only do video. VGA is video only, HDMI supports audio and video. You could, in conjuction get a 3.5 headphone jack to RCA or composite on the same site for sound. Both cables are pretty cheap.

The VGA cable only supplies video data to the LCD TV. Connect a sound cable from the audio out from the Acer PC to the audio input on the LCD TV to get sound from the LCD TV's speakers.
