See if on the back of the TV, and on the computer you have an external type VGA type connector. You then have to purchase a long VGA interface cable to go between the laptop and the TV set.
The TV must be compatible to receive the VGA and external audio from your computer, and the computer must be capable to drive external audio/video devices.
Another issue that must be worked out is both the TV and computer must have compatible screen resolution rates. You will have to get the information about the display card in the computer, and compare it to the specs of the TV set. If these do not match up in to proper range you will either have a very stretched or compressed picture, or you may not be able to have any results at all.
If the scan rates are too far out, it is possible to damage the TV set!

If everything is technically correct, you will also have to purchase compatible cables to go from the lap top external audio output to the correlated audio input connectors on the TV. This is an adapter type audio cable.
For these cables, you will have to determine the connector end types on each of the units, so that you can go to any audio/video supply store and properly pick them out.
There is a simpler solution, but it will not have good picture quality. You can buy a VGA to baseband video converter box (if these are still available). These are not cheap but they can work if set up properly and the scan rates can be matched. You attach the converter box to the external VGA port on the computer, and then use its output via the proper baseband video cables to drive the TV set. The scan rates will still have to match. The quality will be very poor.

HI, I have an old June 2003 Hitachi 51S500 , that i have been trying to unlock for a friend of mine , She said it just started showing one morning . am not sure what kind of lock or what it is All it...


hi this is a problem with the main board clearly

the fact that it is not allowing a code and also the fact that it is asking for a code that was never put in on the first place this shows that the main board has a fault and is causing the controll unit to send out a locked message that cant be unlocked it is not possible

solution:new main board
