No they don't. Smaller LCD televisions use them to save space inside the cabinet and also to reduce build cost. External power supplies can be added to suit the various markets where the television will be sold and each is tested for safety and quality, saving the manufacturer money during developme…nt. Larger televisions frequently require higher power levels than external supplies can deliver easily. Also with larger televisions, there is more internal space to fit a full mains power supply.

I think that most people prefer LCDs (liquid crystal display) overplasma (depending on manufacturer) because of their lower energyconsumption and plasma's are susceptible to image burn-in, whichbasically means that your colors will eventually lose sharpness andget darker (also creating a "shadow" im…age when the power is off).This is caused when the same image is displayed for long periods oftime. Plasma TVs generally do better in darker settings than LCD'sbecause they are brighter; however, LED-backlit LCD televisionshave been developed to reduce this distinction. Plasma tv's arealso made with glass which causes more glare; although, somemanufacturers have developed filters to reduce glare. LCD can lose pixels in its display, either becoming permanently'stuck' or lit, or unlit. I have this problem with my computermonitor (just a white dot in my screen) but I hardly ever notice itesp. considering I got it on discount. Lastly, use and abuse are important in considering which is betterfor you. Plasma's or LED-backlit LCD's are better for movies, esp.when you're watching them in the dark. LCD's are better forvideo-gaming because the static-images (images that don't move)cause burn-ins on plasma TVs. ( Full Answer )
Using LCD TV for Computer Monitor . Depending on the manufacturer and the capabilities of your computer, yes, it's possible. Many people do use LCD TV's for their computers for gaming and general computing use. The larger screen of the big sets really do make for great viewing of pictures and DVD…'s played from your computer. ( Full Answer )
Answer . LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is used in a variety of electronics. They are used extensively calculators, wrist-watches, portable CD players, and MP3 players (to name a few).
Monitors by definition have no tuner, so to use one as a TV you would need a tuner card in your computer. There were some tuner boxes for that purpose but they never caught on. Some tivo type boxes will use a monitor too.. Yes it can as long as it has the correct input cables.
First, the connections:If your PC has a VGA connector as the display output, you need to look for a VGA connector on the back of the television. Sometimes, you might find 5 separate connectors marked as RGBHV instead, but the VGA connector is most common.If your PC has a dVI connector, look on the t…elevision for a DVI or HDMI connector. Either of them will work with the right interconnecting cable.Next, the resolution:Find out the native resolution of the television. You need to set the PC output to the same resolution if you are to get the best image quality. Most displays will scale other resolutions to fit the screen but there is an obvious loss of quality when they do so. If need be, look at obtaining a new video card for the computer - they don't cost a lot these days. ( Full Answer )
It depends upon the size and model. Each LCD TV manufacture has average and above average televisions. You really need to compare the features of each model in the size you are interested in.
\nYour best bet is RG-56 cable. Mainly because of the bandpass characteristics and less capacitance and resistance per foot (loss) as compared to RG-59.\n. \nBe sure that you also use a cable that has a higher amount of shielding to prevent interference from outside radio frequency sources, such a…s light dimmers and local transmitters. ( Full Answer )
This depends on the connections that television and computer graphic output have. The two most common connection types are a 15 pin analog sub-D connector and HDMI connectors, both are readily avail;able at most good computer shops.
\nMost current plasma and LCD TVs can be used as monitors and many people do use it as such - especially for kiosks and signage.\n. \nThe drawback is typically lower resolution for these types of applications. You pay alot of money for these big displays and a 720p display is much cheaper than a 1…080p.\n. \nPros - you get to watch TV. Plasma displays have had a richer picture quality for movies - something that probably does not mater for computer use.\n. \nCons - Much more expensive at higher resolutions. \nMounting options are more expensive with large TVs ( Full Answer )
Each one is better than the other for different reasons. CRT is best for longevity and is way more durable as you can take a baseball bat to a CRT screen with a very considerable amount of force and suffer no damage while a whiffle bat will destroy an LCD. LCDs on the other hand are much easier to t…ransport, light weight and considerably smaller. Now that CRT TVs are no longer being produced we don't really have to asking ourselves this question any longer. ( Full Answer )
No, they use liquid crystals and are backlit with eitherfluorescent tubes or light emitting diodes.
It depends on the size of the LCD Panel and the audio power on the LCD TV.
It depends on the LCD you get. LCD, Plasma, and Rear Projection TVs all come in various models with different capabilities. If you're looking for the highest HD picture capability you can get then look for a TV that can handle a 1080p signal. 1080i and 720p are also considered high def, but 1080p is… what you're looking for if you're going for Blue Ray, XBox, upscaled DVDs, etc. There's really no reason to not get 1080p unless you're really strapped for cash. One thing to think about with LCD is breakability. Yes, they have great pictures, but the monitors are actually pretty easy to break if you accidently drop or run into them with something.

Windex. Answer Screen wipes, from computer stores and electric shops. The outer portion of an LCD may be some type of optical coating so it is best not to use any solvents on it other than soap and water. Use a soft cloth and a dilute solution of soapy water. Finish with a clean, dry and soft… cloth and you need not worry about damaging your screen. ( Full Answer )
The power consumption will vary with manufacturer/model etc. but it will always be on a label on the TV, normally near the power cord connection on the back of the TV.. I've recently been looking in stores, and I'd say approx 90-130 watts.
There is confusion about LED televisions. LCD televisions require a light source behind the LCD panel. The liquid crystals act as shutters to let light pass and so they create the image. Conventional LCD television use cold cathode fluorescent lighting behind the LCD layer. More recently, LEDs a…re being used as the light source and they are cooler and more efficient than the CCFL models. However, the LCD technology hasn't changed but these are frequently known as LED televisions. The latest technology to make it to the domestic market is a true LED television, normally being advertised as OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode). Instead of backlighting and LCD shutters, a red, green and blue LED are used for every pixel on the screen. Each is illuminated as it's needed to create the image. One of the significant advantages is that the screens can be much thinner than other technologies and the power used is lower than LCD televisions. Some models are as thin as 6mm (1/4"). The OLED models are expected to make an impact during 2013 and are likely to replace LCD as the most common display technology in the next few years. LED televisions are not common at the time of writing (2010) but they are expected to make a bigger impact in the future. Although it is a new application, the technology already has quite a history. It is the same type of technology that is used in large outdoor television screen used in concerts and for advertising which have been used for well over a decade. ( Full Answer )
so...The LED is going to be the latest and the greastest. The LED is going to give more of a brighter color off due to the side lighting instead of the lighting being in the middle of the picture. The LED are going to be more dynamic then an LCD. The LCD is still going to be a really good TV but wil…l be thicker on the bottom due to the flourescent lighting on the bottom Shamelessly copied from the Wikipedia article (which is copylefted, admin ftr) Here are the advantages over standard LCD: . Produce images with greater dynamic contrast.  . With Edge-LED lighting they can be extremely slim. Models on the market can be approximately one inch thick.  . Offer a wider color gamut, especially when RGB-LED backlighting is used.  . Less environmental pollution on disposal.  . Generally 20-30% lower power consumption. [ citation needed ] The only clear disadvantage is that LED TVs have a higher sales price. From an objective point-of-view (or as much as possible, considering the word "better" is subjective by nature), LED TVs for the win! ( Full Answer )
Many new computers have either a DVI or an HDMI display port. These are the digital replacements to the 15 pin VGA connector that has been around for many years. Almost all new televisions have an HDMI input. If the computer has an HDMI output, then a simple HDMI cable should carry both video and a…udio to the television. If the computer has a DVI output, a DVI to HDMI cable can be used because the video element of HDMI is identical to the DVI signal. Unfortunately, DVI does not support audio so a separate cable will be needed for the audio signal. Because of the lack of audio support on DVI, most televisions have at least one HDMI input that has a separate analog audio input that is linked to the HDMI port. Finally, there are a number of televisions that have VGA inputs and can accept VGA directly. Others have a set of five RCA or phono sockets normally marked as R, G, B, H, V. The five connectors will normally handle a VGA signal with the right adaptor cable. ( Full Answer )
There are a number of wall mount kits that allow a television to me moved towards and away from a wall. Using one of these allows the mount to be fitted, the television to be screwed to it and all the cables connected before finally moving the television in to the niche. The mounts vary from a few …dollars for lightweight domestic models up to many hundreds of dollars for professional versions that allow for very precise and rigid positioning, typically used for video arrays and walls. Whatever model you might choose, do your homework to make sure the mount will fit into place, allow access and let the monitor slide back into the niche as you need. A few minutes of measuring, drawing and thinking will save hours of rework and frustration. ( Full Answer )
You should be able o do that, either with a composite video/audio in connection or through the antenna connection.
The wattage varies on every television and also varies with your settings like brightness and even volume because it takes more power to play louder. The power usage is listed in the user manual of the tv, if you do not have a manual you can get the information from the manufacturers website just ma…ke sure you have the model number.

It uses 111 watts. When a plasma of 42 inches uses 340 watts way more than a older television that would use 135 watts for 42 inches.
If you where to look at rating for the most reliable MFG of TV's it would be Panasonic. If you are asking about the best picture, then it is usually the most expensive models. I would have to say Samsung. Buy this falls on you as to the best picture. Find a store and check the picture before y…ou buy. Good luck in finding the right TV. ( Full Answer )
Both Sony and Samsung make several somewhat esoteric models of television for specialist markets and these perhaps don't need a mention in an answer as they are not likely to be ever seen in mainstream stores or catalogues. As specific models change rapidly, no mention of model numbers and prices ar…e made here either. Some opinions and information are set out below by several contributors Sony has a new 4 K Ultra HDTV that costs much more than a working person can afford at $24,999.99 for the 84 inch model It is available to preorder in a 55 and 65 inch models at $5000 and $8,000. They exceed the highest broadcast resolutions currently available and therefore outperform the current HD outputs. Sony is clearly the better brand if you want to purchase the best Brand. Normally any best Brand is not the most economical or the best bargain. Even within the Sony HDTV there is also a Best Model and that is often way more expensive. Sony is the most technologically advanced but is a bit more pricey and could cost you a few hundred more than the Samsung with the same features. Quality of picture and other small factors make the Sony a better choice especially for those who want more class and features. But when you don't want to pay those extra hundred dollars, the Samsung is a great preference. The value for money for a Samsung is much more than anything you could get from any other brand. Simply said the price is Justifiable. One data point : We actually have a Samsung LCD TV and it's amazing. We chose it over Sony because we heard that the Sony's have more TV's that need to be repaired. Another data point : In the last few years, thousands of Samsung customers have suffered from a devastating problem that Samsung has been very slow to respond to. Just google "Samsung lcd tv click capacitor" to see the many people who were impacted by Samsung's decision to use inadequate capacitors in their power supplies. There are several videos on youtube on how to repair this problem; one has over 50,000 views. The most important factors with HDTVs are that 1080p LED LCD HDTVs are better than the other models of LCD HDTVS. That all of a brands top newly released models now are 3D. even if you never plan to use 3D the picture quality is better in 3D models for all the brands. Electronic prices always decrease as newer models are released and it is reasonable to assume that will continue. Many of the discounted HDTVs are either old stock or new production of older models.

LCD TV is better because plasma TVs use certain gas cells to produce the image and the TV can make the room feel like a furnace in just a few minutes, depending on the surroundings. LCD TVs take forever to get that hot.
In many cases they can be used as a computer display but it is important to check the user manual first. The simplest way to connect a PC to a television is using the HDMI port. HDMI is a television interface but it is compatible with DVI, the digital computer display interface. In most cases, a DV…I to HDMI lead is all that is needed. Computer displays run at different frequencies to broadcast material so it is not guaranteed that the computer display will be recognized or displayed properly, hence the need to check in the manual. A few televisions will also accept a VGA signal although these are far less common than HDMI inputs on televisions. If the computer does not have a DVI output, it is possible to obtain USB based DVI display ports. That will provide the right video signal to link to the HDMI port. Note that DVI does not carry sound so a separate audio connection will be needed as well as the video link. ( Full Answer )
Unfortunately you can't. VGA is an analog signal whereas HDMI is purely a digital signal. There are several ways to connect the two: First, many televisions have component inputs that will accept an VGA signal. If it does accept VGA, there will be 5 connectors marked R,G,B,H,V. An adaptor cable can… be purchased to connect a 15pin HD connector to the separate connections. Take a few minutes to read the manual for the television to see if the connections are available. Next, there are USB based video displays that can be connected to a laptop to provide an additional display output. Select one that offers either an HDMI output or a DVI output. DVI does not carry sound but otherwise is fully compatible with HDMI. A DVI - HDMI cable will connect the computer to the television. You will need to use a separate audio connection and most televisions offer an analog audio connection on at least one of the HDMI inputs. Again, refer to the manual to check. Finally, buy a VGA to DVI or VGA to HDMI adaptor. These tend to be more expensive than USB display ports so it's the least attractive option. If this is the only option open to you, make sure that the converter will handle the screen resolution of the VGA output before placing the order. ( Full Answer )
A LED tv is a LCD tv with LED backlighting. non led lcds have CFL backlighting or such (compact fluorescent LED tv's are different because they can be thinner and have a more dynamic brightness range (in general).

The power consumption will vary with each manufacturer/model etc. Most 32" or smaller Flat screen TV's will use between 50 and 150 watts, which is 50% less than what Normal/Tube/CTR TV's use. There are four places to find your TV's exact wattage... 1) Is the back of your TV on the product informa…tion label. 2) Is near where the power plug connect to the TV. 3) Is in the TV's Owners Manual, under "Tech Spec's". 4) Is on the brands website. Use your search engine and search for "*brand* Owners Manual" then navigate to "Tech Spec's". I recently (in 2011) purchased a Vizio(which is manufactured by Samsung with all the same electronics) 32" flat screen TV, model number E321VL from Wal-Mart. It uses 49 WATTS. Knowing your products Wattage is important for several reasons... Using a generator during power outages, using solar or wind power, or for looking to save some money on your electric bill.

LCD stands for Liquid Cristal Display. It's the type of TV screen they use, as opposed to old tube screens of old days.
When compared to a plasma, no. Plasma tv's use much more energy. However, LED technology is the most cost efficient.
LG aren't using the latest technology in 3D. The passive glasses are polarizing lenses and operate in the same way that film based 3D movies have been doing for many years. LG have called this "Cinema 3D" in recognition of the fact it has come from cinema technology. The latest 3D technology is be…ing used by most other manufacturers who are using active glasses. This technique retains full resolution in the images rather than LG's system that cuts effective resolution down to only 540 lines. ( Full Answer )
LCD stands for liquid crystal display and LCD TVs use liquidcrystals to give off their display while plasma TVs show display bythe technology utilizing small cells containing electricallycharged ionized gases (or what is also more commonly known asfluorescent lamps). And another famous difference is… that plasmaTVs can get hot and can make the area around the TV just as hot ina few minutes. A2. Liquid crystal does not produce any light. The crystal acts like ashutter, allowing or blocking light through. The light is providedby cold cathode flourescent lamps (CCFL), or more recently, whiteLED's (Light Emitting Diodes), shining through from behind theliquid crystal layer. A plasma TV uses a glowing, plasma gas, held in tiny glass cells,which actually provide the light directly. The screens get hot, dueto the hot plasma. The screens are hard to make and very delicate.If you bend the screen (when carrying it) it is possible to crackthe glass containing the gas and cause a dead pixel. In both technologies, the individual cells are grouped in threecolours, Red, green and blue. Which gives a full colour display.With all three cells turned on, the three colours produce WHITElight.

No. PDP is a Plasma Display panel, which is an entirely different technology than LCD or Liquid Crystal Display television.
Yes. As long as there is an output for on than it is possible. What you need to do is have the wires that are blue. Then you hook it up to a laptop or to another electronic and it will then bring up an image on your tv.
LCD means liquid crystal display that is like a flat screen television with wide screen and great sound. It also has High Definition if available. Shows movies and shows in great quality.
Although it still depends on its technical specification, in the vast majority of cases an LED TV will be better. LED usually has a sharper image as each pixel is being changed individually by a different diode meaning that the picture also changes quicker and smoother. . LCD TV is also known as Li…quid Crystal Display TV. From its name, it uses liquid crystal to produce images on the TV screen. Its thin layer of liquid crystal has tiny cells that produce pixels. As an electric current is applied, its rod shaped molecules respond by bending the light. LCD TVs are quite inefficient in terms of power utilization because the enormous mass of light that is being produced behind the screen is blocked before it reaches the person who is watching the television. LED TVs also known as Light Emitting Diode on the other hand use backlighting technology with the use of LED. Its screen contains blue, red and green LEDs which lights up to produce the correct color. It has two types of backlighting technology: Edge Lighting and Full Array. Its backlighting technology makes it possible to consume 40% less power making it eco friendly.. ( Full Answer )

All televisions are supplied with a power cord suitable for the model. If, for any reason, a new cord is used, it is important that you confirm it is correct for the television. The manual should provide the information but if there is any doubt, for safety, ask the advice of someone properly qualif…ied before using a different power cable. ( Full Answer )
The only thing to be concerned with is do the screw holes line up and can the bracket support the weight?
An LCD TV is different from a regular TV because a LED tv is an LCD tv with LED backlighting. Regular tv's are non lcd so they have CFL backlighting. Both tv's are reliable and widely used
Conventional televisions use tubs to generate pictures on the screen. An LCD television has no tubes, it generates pixels directly on the screen which are backlit in order to make them visible.
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, while LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display. LED televisions give the viewer better picture quality, higher pixalization, and do not require the backlight of a traditional LCD television.
CRT TVs are different from LCD TVs in the way the picture is build up on the screen.Electrons are being released with highspeed in CRT TVs to build up the picture while in LCD TVs liquid crystals make up the picture.
The size of the TV screen is the most important criterion for TV power consumption. In Germany from January to May 2010, the average power consumption specified by manufacturers of LCD flat screen televisions was 123 watts for a 32 inch screen. For a screen size of 42 inches this figure increases to… 187 watts, and 47 inch televisions consume 235 watts. In the longer term, a considerable difference is evident if a TV is switched on for an average of four hours per day and left in standby mode for the rest of the time. A 32 inch TV consumes 179 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year compared to 342 kWh by a 47 inch model. This equates to CO2 emissions of 100kg per year for the smaller model and 200kg for the larger screen size. In addition to ecological aspects, consumers will also be interested in the economic advantages. Over the course of a year, a 32 inch TV generates a saving of around half the electricity cost of a 47 inch model. ( Full Answer )
You can buy used TVs on Amazon as well as on eBay. Just choose the product you want and check if there are used products available. Don't forget to check the shipping costs because it could costs more then a new product.
