Hi,
 
I have a Panasonic TX-32LZD85 TV and I would like to connect my PC to it. In the manual it says to press AV on the remote control and select PC, however, when I press AV I only get the following options: 
 
AV1 [DVD]
AV3/S
HDMI1 [HUMAX]
HDMI2 [PS3]
TV
 
The TV has a VGA port on the back which I've tried connecting to. I also have a VGA to HDMI cable which I've tried in all three HDMI slots in the TV, but I haven't been able to get a PC display with any configuration.
 
Please can someone suggest how I can view my PC display on my TV?
 
Thanks,
Joe

Hi,

When you are cabled up to the TV have you checked the PC to be sure that it recognizes that a second monitor has been attached?

I'd stick with the VGA cables until I had a display. The fewer variables the better.

I haven't tried adding it as a second monitor. I just unplugged my monitor and plugged in my TV.

Hi,

They both display graphics but they are not the same monitor. You must tell your PC what monitor is being used so that it can provide the proper signal.

Hi,
 
Unfortunately I'm still having problems with this. The connection usually works, but about a quarter of the time I can't get the PC display to show on the TV. I've noticed that when it displays it says SXGA 60Hz in the corner of the screen and when it doesn't it says XGA 60Hz in the corner. I've tried two different VGA cables and have the same problem with both. I've tried restarting the TV and unplugging and reattaching the VGA cable but it doesn't seem to help. It requires a few hours or a PC restart to reset. Please could someone tell me how to get it working properly every time?
 
Thanks,
Joe
