To fix it, just turn the set off, let it discharge for a few hours. Reach in and remove the socket from the back of the tube and reinsert a few times to break through the corrosion.
This is a sign of weakness in the manufacturer of the guns and the connecting sockets. The metal used in the pin connections inside the socket are corroding and when you remove the socket and reinsert it cuts through the corrosion and makes good
contact again.

If still not working contact the support for your television..

Hope that helps......

Have you cycled thru the inputs on the TV? Should display under the DVI input setting. Use input/source button on your remote to cycle thru inputs.

Hope this helps

    You may also have to go into your display properties in the control panel to turn on the output of the laptop.

Look in your TV manual to see what resolutions your TV supports. Look at what resolutions your converter supports. Find the highest resolution that both the TV and converter match. Set your laptop to that resolution.

Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

What kind of connector do I use to connect a dell laptop to a Hitachi 42'' plasma display? HDMI to DVI or HDMI to VGA?


If the TV has a VGA connector then use a VGA to VGA cable from your laptop as most laptops have a VGA output. Otherwise use one of the other combinations that work HDMI to DVI or HDMI to HDMI..

Is there someway to hook up our Hitachi 42HDS69 to our laptop


Your computer should have a DVI port to make this possible since your TV dont have a VGA port. If your computer have a DVI port then an HDMI/DVI cable is all you need. This allows you to connect you computer or laptop to you tv through the HDMI connection on your tv.
