You must be aware of the issues of this connection. Not only must you get another VGA monitor to work but on some TVs the designer thought (wrongly) that the VGA DETECT PIN should be checked. Sadly Samsung and other makers learned that lesson the hard way.
You may have connected it just fine or just have bad luck about the noted pin. There are youtube videos about a workaround but I can't endorse or write further about that.
I have an Acer Espire M5630- Vista Home Edition 32 bit and a Panasonic Viera 32" HDTV. I'm trying to connect the two.
On the back of the TV there is a port marked PC. A VGA cable fits it. On my PC there is a VGA port that connects to the back of my monitor. I disconnected the cable from the back of the PC. Connected a VGA to VGA from PC to the TV.
When I set the TVs input to PC, it tells me no connection present. Check to see of external device in connected properly and turned on.
I'm lost. Did I connect incorrectly? I forgot to mention there is another connection from PC to monitor. I don't know what that cable is called.
Can someone help please. Thought I had the solution.
