Hi, My VGA to HDMI converter isn't working on my second screen. but if I go HDMI to HDMI direct it does so I know the second screen works fine. I have also tried it 'VGA to HDMI' on another screen and it does work. So in short.. My screen 'Panasonic Vieira' can receive a signal 'HDMI to HDMI' but not from a VGA to HDMI converter which I know works.

Any advice please

Thanks for your reply.. I don't know the make (it doesn't say) Got it off eBay from China. The strange thing is that it works when I tried a different TV.. Maybe my TV isn't compatible with the converter.. is that possible??

Try another converter - looks like yours may have failed.

I’m going to try another converter tomorrow! but as I said, the converter I have at the moment works on one TV but not the other (Mine) how strange!.

The up-date then!

I've tried another converter... still no joy. :-( The strange thing is, if I attach my Laptop to my TV (HDMI to HDMI) that works fine. It seems my TV can't receive a strong enough signal from a 'VGA to HDMI converter'. I've tried 2 converters and I know they both work.

Any advice people. Many thanks
