Question about BenQ Televison & Video

1 Answer

I just bought the BenQ pq4242 LCD TV. I got it out of the box and WOW,,no cable connector in the back of the TV. How can I connect it? I will not buy an extra cable/coverter box to add to my brand new TV. I just have standard definition cable TV coming into my house via a standard coax cable. Why doesn't this TV come with a standard cable ready coax input?

Hi, Actually Your OK. Not to Worry. BenQ is known for making good equipment. The configuration I give you will be an upgrade to the single cable coming from the box.
How do you solve the problem? There may have been other cables supplied with your set that
will connect to your box. If there is an RCA cable with 3 sections. Yellow Red and White. They go from the cable box straight into the set. Yellow is composite Video Signal without sound. Connect it to the Yellow output on the Box to the Yellow Input on the BenQ. The Red goes to the Right Channel Audio Output of the Cable box to the Right Channel Audio Input (also Red) on the Back of the BenQ. Finally the White Connector goes to the Left Channel Audio Output of the Box to the White Left Channel Audio Input on the BenQ. You will probably have a choice of "Video One or Video Two. I think Two should work with your configuration. When turning on the set set the input to whichever section 1 or 2 or 3 sometimes. And Everything should come up fine.
THIS IS BETTER QUALITY THAN YOU HAD BEFORE.
The set you now have is full High Definition. So if your box is unable to receive High Definition, you are missing out on HDTV. If you get a BluRay Disk Play, such as a Samsung or Sony (I recommend Samsung for reliability), You will be Thrilled with the Video Image. Your BenQ also has decent speaker outputs to connect bigger speakers.
I hope this has been a help.
Have a Happy New Year,
Best, Mark

How do you hook up cable box using coaxial in hdmi out


If your cable box has an HDMI OUT connector you simply connect the HDMI cable to the TV and the coaxial cable from the cable company to the coaxial input on the cable box. Then select the HDMI input on the TV that matches the number of the HDMI input port you chose on the back of the TV.

Why is my sony bravia not tuning in and can you tell me how to fix it


The TV is probably not seeing the signal. Are the cords connected in the right slots on the cable box and TV (cable TV wire into the cable input connector on box, and cable out to the TV in the cable out connector on the box, and then connected to the right connector on the back of the TV)? Or, maybe you may need to go into the TV screen options and choose the the right external source that will allow the TV to see the signal.

A blue display box continually pops up with Input Select D sub DVI. I am thinking it is something to do with the monitor. What is wrong?


This monitor has two types of video inputs, a 15 pin VGA D-sub connector and a DVI connector.
If the video card has a 15 pin D-Sub then connect the video cable to the 15 pin D-Sub connector on the monitor.
If the video connectors are DVI then connect the video card and monitor with a DVI video cable.
You will also need to configure the monitor for either the D-Sub or DVI video input.

Just bought the brookstone wireless tv headphones. I have a Westinghouse 40 inch lcd tv. I plugged in the rca red/white into the audio out and I don't get any sound into the headphones?


I had the same problem with Brookstone wireless headset the only solution I found was plug in the red and white connectors to your cable box it works perfectly that way. Just make sure the red cable connector from the transmitter is connected to right red input connector on the box. I have a Comcast cable box. Now I need a solution for them on my PS3?

There are a couple of different ways you can do this but this is the easiest.

Items needed - One set of RCA audio cables (Red/White)

1) On the back of your TV there should be RCA plugs marked as "Audio Out". Connect the RCA cable to these connections Red cable to Red connector and White cable to White connector.

2) Locate on the back of the surround sound system the connections marked "Audio in (VCR)". Connect the other end of the RCA cable to this connection Red cable to Red Connector and White cable to White connector.

Now to get the sound to play press the "VCR" button on the surround remote and you should get the cable box sound on the surround system.

Good Luck.....

Unable 2 watch dishtv in Benq LCD SD3731 with DVD cbl plugged in


The S_Video connection has precedence (most likely named AV1) over the RCA/composite one (better image quality - usually named AV2) so it will be automatically selected. If you want to view thru AV2 input you will have to select it manually every time you want it.
