  • Can I use my plasma as a PC monitor?

    • We would not recommend using a plasma television as a monitor for more than two hours a day. Any longer and this may cause image retention on the television. This is not a manufacturing fault and would not be covered by warranty.

  • How do I connect my PC to my TV?

    • If the television has a VGA connection, then we would suggest connecting via the VGA connection. You would need to ensure that the PC is outputting a compatible signal to the television; compatible signals can be found in your television’s instruction manual. 

      You will need to select the PC input from the input menu on your television. 

      If you are connecting your PC to the HDMI connection of the TV, you might need to contact your PC or graphics card manufacturer to enquire as to whether their product can output a standard video signal for Televisions. Outputting PC resolutions may result in no picture being displayed on the TV.

      Unfortunately, Panasonic cannot guarantee compatibility with all third party products, even if the above requirements are met.

  • How do I clean the screen of the television?

    • A clean, dry, soft cloth should be used to clean the television screen. For stubborn dirt, dampen a soft cloth with clean water or diluted neutral detergent (1 part detergent to 100 parts water). Then ring the cloth and wipe the screen. Ensure that the cloth does not drip water; the television is not watertight and any damage to the television due to water getting into it is not covered under warranty. Finally, wipe away all of the moisture.

  • How can I connect a game console to my TV?

    • The best connection to connect a game console is the DVI connection. In order to be able to use this connection the game console must have one of the following connections:

      • Most game consoles have a special AV out connection with several of the following possibilities:
        • HDMI OUT (digital connection). Use an HDMI to DVI cable or an HDMI to HDMI cable with the supplied HDMI to DVI adaptor.
        • DVI OUT (digital or analogue connection).
        • VGA OUT (analogue connection). Use the supplied VGA-DVI adaptor.
        • YPbPr OUT (or COMPONENT or YUV OUT). Use a YPbPr-VGA adaptor (not supplied) and the supplied VGA-DVI adaptor.

      Connect (one of) the audio OUT connections of the game console as well.

      • If the game console does not have one of the connections mentioned above connect it to the scart connection. In order to be able to use this connection the game console must have one of the following connections:
         
        • Scart OUT.
        • S-video OUT. Use a S-video to scart adaptor to connect to EXT 1. Connect the audio separately to the same adaptor (red and white cinch) or to an audio system.
        • CVBS OUT (yellow for video, red and white cinch for audio). Use a CVBS to scart adaptor to connect to EXT 1 or EXT 2. 

       

      After having made the connection you may have to set the video and the audio output in the menu of the game console.

        Note: Please refer to your Laptop/Notebook manual to determine which keys are used for the transfer function.
      8. 8. Example of the common function keys use by Laptop/Notebook manufacturers such as 'Fn'+'F8' keys.
         

         
      9. 9. Hold down the 'Fn' key, and toggle the ‘F8’ key (or key determined by the manufacturer) once or two times.

    • Follow these instructions to clean your TV screen:

      1. 1. Switch off the TV and unplug the mains cord from the wall outlet.
      2. 2. Do not use a damp cloth or any chemicals, such as acetone, toluene or alcohol.

      4. 4. Do not press hard on the screen! Doing so could severely damage the screen.

       

      For persistent stains we recommend Philips Plasma/LCD Screen cleaner SVC2540. Spray a small quantity of the product on the screen and then wipe off with a Microfiber cloth.

      STEP 4. Changing the computer name

      In the PC Share Manager on your computer, your TV access is listed as a server. The name of this server is WiseLinkPro PC server by default. In case you use your TV to access more then one computer, it is advisable to rename each one, so you can easily differentiate among them.

      If your TV displays an error message No external storage device found, check the connection status, it means that there is no network connection or your TV can not find the server created by the PC Share Manager on your computer.

      To resolve the problem, follow the steps below.

      1. Make sure your television has a network connection. To run the network test go to the Setupmenu under the Cable Network Setup on your TV.
      2. Make sure that the PC Share Manager is running and your TV is listed as accepted in the Set Security Policy window.
      3. Verify that the media (music, pictures, videos) you are trying to access meets the format requirements specified in the user's manual.
      4. If none of the above helps, disable the firewall software on your computer.

      NOTE: Your firewall software may prompt you to allow PC Share Manager to access the network. Click to Allow PC Share Manager access through the firewall.

      NOTE: Your firewall may allow you to use Share Manager. Before you disable your firewall, see if you can add Share Manager to the list of programs permitted to breach the firewall.

      1. In case this still does not help, you may need to uninstall your firewall or antivirus protection software and then reinstall it after PC Share Manager is installed to stop the communication failure.

      STEP 6. Problem solving – 'Request cannot be completed' error message

      When accessing media your TV displays Request cannot be completed. Wiselink Pro will return to the main screen, check the following steps below to resolve the problem.

      1. Make sure your TV is set to the correct server. Press the Red button and then select the correct server.
      2. You may not have set any media files to be shared in the PC Share Manager or set only the main folder to be shared. Make sure that you have set up the folders (My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, for example) to be shared in the PC Share Manager instead of just the My Documents folder.
      3. If the first two options do not resolve the problem, your firewall or antivirus software may be blocking the file sharing and the transfer. Try disabling the software.

      STEP 7. Software download

      If your TV loads only some media, first check the format of the media that will not load and verify if it is compliant with the video, audio or image formats required by PC Share Manager.

      If you have installed the PC Share Manager from a CD, upgrade the software to the latest version.

      The software can be downloaded from the Downloads section on the Samsung UK website. You can easily get there by following the guidelines below.

      When you are asked to create a new Internet@TV ID, you will see the remote control schema on the screen of your TV. Use the corresponding buttons on your remote control to type in the name and password for your account. The password should have up to 8 characters and must be entered twice for verification. You will now have access to your personal account.


      STEP 3. Working with widgets

      Widgets are Internet@TV applications that allow you to easily access content on the internet. You can manage the list of content according to your personal preferences. You will see the list of your widgets in the My Applications section on the Internet@TV homepage. You can get new widgets from the Recommended applications dock or from the Samsung Apps. Just click on the widget you want and this will be added to your applications.

      NOTE: The list of available widgets is updated regularly and is specific for each location.
      In some cases you may find that certain widgets or apps do not work as the access to them is restricted by territory or IP address.
