Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have the NS-PDP42 42" PLASMA 720-P and I would like to know how to change the screen resolution for hdmi devices. In the user guide it says to change it to 1280 x 720p but it does not tell how to change it. Or, should I be able to use 1080i. I use Comcast and have just gotten an HD box and it tells me to choose either 720p or 1080i and to refer to the TV'S manual to find the best picture resolution it will support.

There's no way to tell the HDMI input whether it should take 720p or 1080i input on this set. The best thing to do is experiment. Set your Comcast box to 720p and watch it that way for a while, then set it to 1080i and watch it for a while. The PDP42 has to do a little picture manipulation in either mode, but I think you'll find that the 720p mode will work best for you. I have this set with Verizon FiOS and I have the FiOS output set to 720p. Looks great, no complaints.

Is this tv bluray compatable


This model will project blu rays at a 720 resolution, since I cannot find if it had a HDMI input you might need a HDMI to DVI converter easily found at radioshack or online! This so you can get a greater picture!

Hope this helps!

What adaptor do i need to be able to plug my laptop and internet to my PT-53TW53g panasonic color proj sys


You don't need an adapter if your laptop has a DVI port. Simply connect the laptop's DVI port to the TV's Digital In port and ensure the laptop is outputting a standard 720*480, 1280*720 or 1920*1080 resolution. If your laptop doesn't have a DVI output then you will need a DVI to HDMI converter cable. Connect the HDMI end to the laptop and the DVI end, of the adapter, to the DVI cable.

I need info on a particular TV


Resolution is 1080P (1920x1080). It is 3D ready, and has very good reviews from owners regarding picture quality and overall value. One limitation you will encounter, is that it is more difficult to see the screen from the side, than it is with LCD or plasma. Also, due to lamp warmup times, it takes longer for the TV to turn on. However, you will save a lot of money by purchasing a DLP versus LCD/LED/plasma.

Trying to use ps3, even after using hdmi cable on input 6 or 7, it says check your device output and i see green lines on my screen?


hi
There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video.
ok

Connection error from ps3 to tv.


When you hit the power button from the console, hod it until it beeps at you twice and it will reset the video settings. I read this on a post from gamespot. I hope it works.

Trouble setting up VGA cable to watch movies from my computer on my TV?


First, make sure the VGA cable is plugged into the AV6 slot on the back of the TV.

You will have to go into your computer, and click Start --> Control Panel --> Appearances and Themes --> Display --> Settings and change the screen resolution to 800 x 600 first.

Then go into the program for your Graphics Card and change the screen resolution to 800 x 600 with a 60Hz Refresh Rate - sinc ethis will most likely be a change for you, your computer screen will seem to "flash" a bit - your eyes will adjust as you become used to this.

The other resolutions that work will be the following, but the 60 Hz refresh rate is the key:
Supported Display Resolution•Computer formats: 640 x 48060Hz, 800 x 600 60Hz, 1024 x768 60Hz, 1280 x 720 60Hz•

Changing from 720 to 1080 dpi


The tv should select the resolution automatically depending on the input - if you have an input from a pc and you wish to change the resolution then page 58 of the manual (link below) tells you how to change this on a common pc. all other inputs are usually set - although some newer devices may have their own menu that allows you to also adjust their resolution. http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/pdf/MIT_WD-52525_WD-62525_WD-52725_WD-62725_Manual.pdf page 67 describes how to switch items in the device menu if the appropriate actions are not working then i suggest you get the remote serviced or replaced - ask again if you need help sourcing a new one. Hope this helps :)
