Question about Polaroid FLM-2011 Television

1 Answer

Connecting to a computer

The instructions say to use a VGA cable like with any other monitor but there's no way to plug it into the TV. So....... how do I hook the TV up to my computer to use it as a monitor?

    It would have been more helpful to explain a PC to TV converter box rather than sending an advertisement to try and sell me one.

    I've been told it could also be done using s-video cables but there was no mention of that in your answer. Is it true? I don't want to spend another $100 dollars to hook it up I'd rather just buy another monitor.

If you don't have a VGA input on your TV, you need to convert the signal using a device like this:

We are trying to set up a dual monitor system so that we cn watch movies via the pc [not laptop] we have plugged in all the cables but still zilch


if you want to set up a dual tv monitor system using via pc as a source you will need a VGA splitter usually 2 or more output. now how are you going to connect the 2 monitor and PC to the VGA splitter. first make sure your tv monitor is supported by service input for PC unit. then prepare the accessories needed. the VGA splitter and VGA cable. vinceisaac_30.jpg vinceisaac_31.jpg sample image for VGA splitter VGA cable or connector how are you going to hook up the splitter and VGA cable to the tv monitor and PC
  • you need 3 vga connector and 1 splitter to connect a dual monitor system.
  • connect one end of the vga connector to the pc unit and the other end to the input port of splitter.
  • now the 2 remaining vga connector connect to the output of splitter either of the port, then the 2 end wire you must connect to the input port ( pc service port ) of the 2 tv monitor. make sure you set up the right input either with the remote or at the tv unit to recognized the pc source.
  • you almost done the connections now at this point plug the tv monitors, plug the dc adapter supply of the vga splitter and lastly turn on the pc unit to view movies. i hope it will help you just ask me if you have further questions thanks for choosing the fixya.

I just want to know what kind of cable I need to connect my LTV-37w2HD TV to my computer?@highes.net


The video cable should be a VGA cable, assuming your computer has a VGA connector. Get one that has M/M ends. This is sometimes listed as a 15 pin D-sub connection. Then connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cord (m/m) between the audio out (speaker/headphone) pf the computer to the TV's VGA audio in (if you want to use the TV speakers).

If your computer has an HDMI or DVI output, I do not believe that you can connect to the TVs HDMI port. (The signal from the computer is not the same as that from a set top box.) If you have a DVI port, get a DVI to VGA adapter and then connect to the VGA cable. (You could use a DVI-DVI cable and then the DVI to VGA adapter at the TV. However, space is an issue at the TV.)

Make sure that the VGA port is enabled on the computer. (Some newer computers have a different video port enabled initially.) This may require entering your BIOS just after turning on the computer. Usually you need to strike Esc, F1 or F2 repeatedly starting when you press the power button. (F10 is also a BIOS access with some manufacturers - the key will be listed in a splash screen that is only visible for a few seconds.)

With the computer and the TV off, connect the cables. Then turn on the TV and set the input to VGA. Next turn on the computer. (If this is the only monitor attached, the computer should find the correct resolution (Windows). If you are using a dual monitor option, then you may have to enable the TV as a monitor. This will depend on the OS. For my Windows 7 laptop, it's right click on the desktop and choose Graphics Properties. Set the monitor options for both, external or attached and click Apply. Then click OK when a confirmation window appears. With my Windows 7 desktop, it's right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution. Similarly choose the settings, click Apply then OK to confirm.)

I hope this helps.

To convert a LCD Monitor into a TV
Instructions
    • 1

      Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.

    • 2

      Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.

    • 3

      Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.

    • 4

      Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.

    • 5

      Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.

    • 6

      Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.

We are trying to hook our TV up to our computer to use it as a monitor. What cords do we need to do this besides the normal monitor cord?


if you want audio as well, it will depend on what kind of audio connection your tv has next to the VGA (computer monitor) connection. If it looks like the normal RCA audio, (red and white plugs) you will need to get a male headphone jack (to plug into your computer headphone or speaker out jack) to stereo RCA cable so you would have a headphone jack on one side of the cable and a red and white plug on the other side. Now if your TV just has what look like a headphone jack next to the VGA (computer monitor plug) you will need to buy a male to male stereo headphone jack cable. for both of these, just make sure the cable you get it long enough, or buy an extension.

We have a panasonic 32"inch lcd tv.we want to


hdmi Ports Qty 3 port(s) PC Interface VGA (HD-15) HDCP Compatible Yes

I read your tv has 3 hdmi ports and a PC input.

if your pc has hdmi out - the you use a hdmi cable from the pc to the tv on one of the hdmi inputs.

if your pc has a 15pin vga cable you can unplug from your PC monitor (or go buy a VGA cable if you want to keep one on the tv and one on your pc monitor - or if you are using a laptop).

when you unplug the computer from the monitor .. check the pins - should look to be about 15 pins in the connector. it that will plug into the tv- then you are using a vga cable. if it will not plug into the tv pc input .. don't force it. It could be a dvi connector . .take the cable off the PC and to radio shack and they can fix you up (you need a dvi to vga cable - not likely, but possible)

I always turn off a pc before disconnecting monitors - and plug into the other display before turning the pc back on.

Good luck.
Bill.

How to connect samsung pasma tv to pc?model number is PS42B450B1XUM


Hello,

That does depend on the PC, but I'll assume it's a pretty standard PC.

You ideally need a Male 15Pin VGA cable to Male 15Pin VGA cable. (aka A normal Monitor Cable) The same as you probably have connected between your PC and Monitor.

Your TV has a 15Pin VGA Female socket on the back, this cable plugs into here.

For Sound the TV has what looks like a headphone socket next to the VGA Plug. You need to use a Stereo Jack Plug to Stereo Jack Plug Cable. 3.5mm. This goes from your PC's Audio Line Out (rear of the PC) to the Plug on the rear of the TV. It is usually marked Aux In or PC Sound.

Enjoy, The PC will look great on the Tv.

Samsung TV can't detect connection to laptop


Make sure you set the laptop to display at a resolution the TV can display, it seems best to start with 1024x768 then work up.

If you are using a VGA - HDMI converter it is possible you will not get a picture.

You should be able to set the laptop to 1024 x 768, plug it into the TV, select PC input on the TV remote, and the picture should appear.

If not, then check you have the monitor output on the laptop switched on, test it with another monitor to be sure.

If all the above still fails to work, and you've checked the cable the TV has a fault.

I hope this helps.
