Panasonic Plasma TV Does Not Have HDMI Port.

This answer was rated:

I have a Panasonic Plasma TV without a HDMI port.

How can I connect a laptop to the TV without a HDMI port on the TV?

Hello, do you have S-Video port on your laptop?

Customer :
Mine is Apple Air. I guess there should be. I have got all the Apple HDMI cables, etc. Is there any other alternative solution besides changing TV set of course?

PramitP : You will have to use a HDMI to VGA converter. Does your set have a VGA port?

Customer : No I don't see any VGA port

PramitP : What is the model no. of your TV?

Customer : TY ST42PX5W

PramitP : That is the model no. of the pedestal stand. The model no. can be located at the back of the set. Usually placed on a sticker.

Customer : Th 42PA50H serial YD(###) ###-####Sept 2005 manufactured

PramitP : Your set has component input right? Red Blue Green ports for video and Red White for Audio.

Customer : Yes

PramitP : You will need a HDMI component converter. Connect the HDMI adapter that you have to your Laptop. From the other end take out the HDMI cable and connect it to the input of the HDMI-Component converter. From the component converter out connect the component cable.


Hope it helps. Let me know if you have any queries.

Customer : Where is the HDMI component converter?

PramitP : The first link I have given you is the HDMI Component converter.

Customer : Ok I will try shop for the converter. is it easily available? How about the component cable. is that the HDMI cables that i have got from apple.

PramitP : Yes, Amazon has it in stock. The second link that I had given was component cable.

Customer : I have already got the HDMI cables. Do you mean i cant use them and have to get the component cable.

PramitP : You will have to use both.

Customer : Ok will try it out. thank you very much for your wonderful help.
