    My Panasonic TC-42px14 does the exact same thing.  I had no problems with my old LCD monitor, but for some reason the panny just forces my laptop monitor off and accepts that blank signal.  I've tired to use it as the main monitor, secondary, and only separately with no luck and at different resolutions.    I'm just using a straight VGA-VGA into the PC input.  


    I'll keep trying, and if i figure it out, I'll let ya know.

  1. Ensure that the connection is a direct cable connection from the PC to the TV, no converters or cable adapters as these are generally not Bi-directional which is required for a PC to see a TV.
  2. Try turning on the TV, then booting the computer. Some devices require the initialization signal from the computer to activate the port on the TV.
  3. See if the TV input select has an option to search for active signals.
IF none of that helps, post the exact model of TV and computer as well as the type of cable connection you are using.

The biggest stopper most of the time is a cable converter.

Guys, Recently i got LG 22" LCD TV. It has VGA port and HDMI port. When i connected my CPU cable toLCD via VGA port it didn't show anything, :"( i checked input MENU on remote then it shows only 4...


HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface]. VGA [Video Graphics Array]. AV [Audio Video]. By these definitions itself talk to you about the inputs your TV have; and it do not support VGA. Output from PC is VGA. Without a VGA input with the TV, you can't connect the PC to TV. I think I'm clear. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Bent hdmi port for sansung tv


no, the board it is on is sold as a unit---I have seen several techs try to replace the socket---there are some sites on the internet that stock by model number all the boards Google Samsung boards/parts.

The only other option I see is connect the set via another input like component--that connector and the board are history.

This is not really a problem but is the serial port the only only option to connect a PC? What about USB or Firewire?


The USB ports for TVs are usually for accessing drives to play photos or videos. Unfortunately the PC will not communicate directly with the TV via USB. A device in between connecting to the TV via USB and using the other TV ports makes the PC communicate with the TV.

Connecting my laptop to my samsung tele


Most common problem is the VGA cable. Make sure you have the 15 pin VGA Monitor cable.

1. Switch off the TV & Notebook
2. Connect the VGA cable to the TV and Notebook.
3. Switch on the Notebook. Set the resolution to 800 x 600 Pixels (Go to Control Panel - Adjust Screen Resolution). Then go to Advanced settings and set 'Screen Refresh rate' as 60 hz in the Monitor tab,
4. Switch on the TV. Go to Source button from the TV remote and select PC as input source. Alternatively, you can go to 'Menu' and select 'PC' as input source. If the connection is made properly, PC option will NOT be GREY anymore.
5. Press Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depending on which Notebook brand you have)

HOW TO CONNECT SAMSUNG LCD TV TO ACER ASPIRE


Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:

If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
  1. Make sure your TV and computer are off.
  2. Using a 15 pin D-sub (standard) video cable, connect the Video Out jack on your computer's video card to the PC In jack on the back of your TV.
  3. Using an audio cable with a min-stereo plug on one end and two RCA jacks on the other, connect the Audio Out jack on your computer to the left and right PC Audio In jacks on your TV. (Note: If you have your computer connected to separate speakers, you can skip this step)
  4. Switch on the Notebook and Adjust the Resolution (800 x 600 pixels would do). You can go to Control Panel and Adjust the screen resolution. (Keep ‘Screen Refresh rate’ at 60hz in the Monitor Settings)
  5. Switch on the TV and try to Select the Source as 'PC' (you can do this by either pressing the 'Source' button several times on your TV remote or go to the Menu - Setup and Select the 'PC' as source there).
  6. In most cases, after following the above steps, the TV would start to show 'Auto Adjusting' message and it will start showing your Desk top on the TV. But incase it doesn't work, you can do the following:
a. Mostly the problem lies with the VGA cable. Make sure you have the right one (15 pin) and its securely attached at both ends. If you are not using the right VGA Cable, it means that there is no connection between your TV and Notebook. Your TV will show 'PC' in Grey in the Source Input list (Go to ‘Menu’ from the TV remote).
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.
