Find the serial number on the tv - maybe on the back. Search online for that number. Or just buy a universal remote.

IPad HD


A new report adds credibility to rumors that Apple may be gearing up to release a Retina-display-equipped iPad, potentially as early as this fall.<br /> <img src="iPad2-15-SlashGear-580x447.jpg" /><br /> The Korea Times reports that Samsung and LG have both provided Apple with high-resolution LCD displays that are being quality tested at an Apple facility in China. The Times' anonymous sources tell the newspaper that the next iPad will retain the 9.7-inch display but quadruple its resolution.<br /> ''Apple's upcoming iPad 3 will feature an improved display to support quad extended graphics (QXGA), a display resolution of 2048 pixels by 1536 pixels with a 4:3 aspect ratio to provide full high definition (HD) viewing experience,'' a source said. Sources expect the testing will be done "during the third quarter."<br /> Rumors that Apple would pack a Retina display into the iPad have been circulating since it coined the term when it announced the iPhone 4. As my PCWorld colleague, Jared Newman pointed out a few weeks ago, this particular rumor is starting to gather steam as more evidence piles up.<br /> Most rumors point to the device being a new model in the iPad 2 line, not the next-generation tablet. Some have said the updated model will be called the "iPad 2 Plus" and be identical to the iPad 2, but have a higher resolution display. Earlier this month, sources told This is My Next that the new iPad will be marketed as a tablet for video and photo production professionals and be called the "iPad HD, not iPad 3."<br /> About author:<br /> Chary Telford, the engineer of digital multimedia software from <a href="http://www.dvdrippermacos.com/">dvd ripper for mac</a>, makes it easy to find what software, including <a href="http://www.dvdrippermacos.com/dvd-ripper-reviews.html">dvd ripper reviews</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/free-mac-dvd-converter.html">free dvd ripper for mac</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/freeresource/top-6-free-dvd-ripping-software.html">free dvd ripping software</a> etc, are the best for you.

Monitor buying tips you should know.


Over the years monitors have transformed from those bulky CRT monitors to square LCD screens to stylish flat wide screen LCD's and now to new stylish extremely thin LED screens. On average every PC user spends at least 5 hours a day looking at the monitor. If the picture is fuzzy and not clear enough then there is a very high possibility that the eyes get damaged.

Monitor Sizes
There are many different sizes of CRT, square LCD, wide LCD and wide LED monitors available on the market at the moment.

If you want an older CRT screen then sizes can range between 14" to about 20", they use the 4:3 aspect ratio.
If you want an older LCD screen then sizes can range from 15" to 19", they also use the 4:3 aspect ratio.
If you want a newer wide screen LCD then sizes can range from 18.5" to about 27" and even larger. They use the 16:9 if they are full HD or 19:10 if they are not ratio.
If you want a newer wide screen LED then sizes can range from 18.5" to about 27" and even larger. They also use the 16:9 if they are full HD or 19:10 if they are not ratio.

Image quality
The sharpness of the image in a monitor greatly depends on your Graphics card as well as whatever resolution you are running at. Nevertheless the quality of the monitor plays an important role.

Here are some of the tips that you should know before buying a monitor.

1. There are three types of monitors namely CRT, LCD and LED. The monitor that looks like a TV is a CRT monitor. In CRT monitors there is a Cathode Ray Tube that shoots electrons into the screen to create the image. An LCD monitor is smaller in width and consumes less power and is healthier if you are going to be spending large amounts of time at your PC. The LED screen looks the same as an LED monitor and the difference between it and the LCD is that it has a much higher contrast ratio resulting in darker blacks and much lighter whites.

3. A CRT monitor is much heavier than LCD monitor as you can imagine by it's bulky appearance. A LCD monitor is very lightweight and so is a LED monitor.

4. The distance between two adjacent pixels in a monitor is called 'dot pitch'. This is measured in millimeters (mm). Smaller the dot pitch the clearer the picture quality. Usually there are monitors with dot pitch varying between 0.20 mm to 0.27mm. Some manufacturers use diagonal dot pitch while most of them use horizontal dotpitch. The diagonal dot pitch is always longer than the horizontal dot pitch

5. Resolution of a monitor has to be considered with care. Most of the CRT monitors have resolutions of 800×600, 1024×768 and 1280x1024. The square LCD monitors have 1280×1024 and 1600×1200 resolutions. Newer wide screen LCD monitors have resolutions of 1600x1900, 1680x1050 and the Full HD 1920x1090. When the resolution is higher the images and text will appear smaller. But you can see more text and bigger pictures in the monitor with high resolution.

6. Another thing to note is the 'Refresh rate'. This rate is usually 60Hz, 73Hz, 75Hz, 85Hz. Refresh rate of 85Hz means the picture on the monitor is refreshed 85 times within a second.

7. The brightness and contrast can range between a low 5 000:1 to a high 80 000:1 in a LCD monitor and an average of 5 000 000:1 in a LED, yes that's 5 million to 1 with a LED. This just shows how much better a LED monitor is to a LCD.

8. If you are a gamer then the thing you have to look at with LCD monitors and LED monitors is the response time. If it is 16ms then this is a very bad monitor for gaming and you will experience a ghosting effect in most games and if it is 5ms then you will have an average gaming experience. What you want to get is a 2ms response time monitor, with it you will have the best gaming experience with no ghosting what-so-ever.

My HD is full is it possible to add memory? (Not RAM)


Hello

Ok, if you are asking if it is possible to ad memory to your existing drive, the anwser is not, you need to put in another HD, or get yourself an external HD.

I use an external HD, it works great for me.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards

I want to play mini cds standard slot drive in laptop.


Since Philips has sold their name and US product lines to the junk dealer Funai, it might be available under their name now.
You could also purchase an external drive to expand your possibilities; they are on eBay for ~ $50 US.

How do i connect an external hard drive to my LG LCD Tv?


The LG's will support an external USB hard drive, but it seems the USB support was intended for thumb drives, so yuo need to do the following to get it working:
  1. the drive must be formatted FAT32 (like thumbdrives)
  2. keep the file names short
  3. keep the directory structure simple and as flat as possible
I have a 60GB laptop drive in a USB 2.0 enclosure drive working really nicely with good transfer rates. It takes it's power from the USB socket and is working fine.

Hope this helps.

I have developed yellow dots in screen of new LCD tv what causes this and can it be repaired


I can only assume you're talking about a PC LCD Monitor.
How many yellow dots will tell you whether or not the manufacturer will replace. If it's 20 pixels in the same square inch then you might have a case. Inexpensive unknown brand name LCD's are known to have issues with random pixels. For that matter so have brand name LCD's, but less frequently. Having 1 or 2 bum pixels is not that uncommon. Call the manufacturer, though, You never know!
