Are you using RCA type audio cables?, if so, make sure the connectors are tight and the cables are not frayed, it also helps routing those analog cables at least 8 inches away from any power cords or transformers. Buzzing usually is caused by loose ground connections or RF interference.
You probably would need the extra audio cords seeings as normal svga connection won't suppost sound streaming. mixing and matching connections is always a pain to perfect.
If you are using the HDMI end on your plasma, then you will have the video show up on the HDMI channel. Then get an RCA red and white pair - 3.5mm jack and plug the jack into your PC's audio connection port and the RCA's into the Audio In ports in the back of the TV.
Once done the TV should display video and play sound from the PC. Failing this, try a few different configuration but always keep the audio plugged into the same Audio in port on the TV. Bacause then you at least know the channel that the audio works on ;D
Hope this helps mate, any more q's just ask!
if you PC has one of the following outputs then it will work ... composite (rca jack) , S-Video , HDMI or component (three wire rca jack) ...
several video cards have at least composit video out as well as the normal VGA output . look for a single RCA.jack .... if your video card does not support any of these formats then you would need a VGA converter box to one of those formats ... there is also a USB to s-video/composite converter cable ...
the resolution of your set is 1024 X 768 ... so thats what you would set the video card for ..
On most handheld TV units, the A/V input requires a 3.5mm stereo baby phone plug. While on most projectors, the Video out is a composite single RCA jack. What would be needed then is a 3.5 babyphone to RCA cable/adapter.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.
You would have got a CD with this moniter..
we ahve install that cd..
and its better to check the cables first which would be the
VGA CORD that is blue in colour which connects your moniter with the tower.
We can check the connections with the moniter for the Tower and then install the cd.
try going to your local radioshack and asking for a cable to do it. Tell them it needs to be "double male" infering that the piece sticks into another part instead of bieng stuck into. Then tell them one end needs to be "RCA cables" (the red white and yellow ones) and the other end needs to be a computer moniter cable. There are several types of moniter cables you can use, look in the back of your moniter to see what you have. There should be writing that says any 1 of the following "s video in", "dv in" "video in" etc. ask the radioshack man to get the non RCA side of the cable to have one of these on it. If you need to, it helps to take a picture of the back of the moniter where all the input plugs are, and show it to the radio shack man, he can probably help decide which cable to use. Once you buy the cable, plug the red yellow and white side into the red yellow and white holes respectively on the PS2, and the moniter cable into the moniter. Turn on the moniter and the PS2 and... Voila.
PS You may need to take out the cable connecting the moniter to the PC to put in the new radioshck cable.
I hope this works for you-BCA
