Question about Hitachi 42PD3000 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Hi Somebody gave me a old hitachi Plasma TV coming with AVC A3000. The AVC is not working anymore but the Plasma Screen is supposed to be fine. i don't want to replace the AVC as i am not watching TV other than DVD or Video clip from internet. I would like to connect my MBP to this plasma and turn it as second display. I have the miniDisplay DVI adapter from MAC but when i connect it's not working. I guess the remaining 8pin DIN has something to do with that but i have no way to make use of it on my MBP. Is it possible to make this plasma work without the AVC using only the DVI cable? thanks

The Plasma Screen needs to 'talk' to the Control Unit so no you cannot run the item separately.

SOURCE: No Display

for the HD15 connection you need to set your TV to PC mode

 

the only thing I can think that you may be doing wrong is that you need to "ACTIVATE" the external outputs on the laptop,as they are not on by default.

 

To switch video output mode  LCD / CRT (monitor/PC mode) /TV mode plus some dual modes LCD + CRT / LCD + TV

 

I have found that the overlays used for video playback do not work in the dual modes,  (and I have found that CRT monitor mode is best for connecting to a large TV)

 

so switch your TV to PC input,  connect your HD15 cable and SWITCH output mode on your laptop (usually Fn F5) press until you get an output,

 

you will also need to connect audio, so get a phono -> 3.5mm jack plug and plug that in also, and you are ready to rock and roll

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

Replacing the front glass entails completely disassembling the entire TV. Your best bet is to look for a broken TV with a good front glass.
