Can you describe the "distortion" that you refer to? Also, were there any changes to the laptop when this occurred or did this just suddenly appear?

Thanks,
Dan

Computer screen messed up after connecting to a Projector.


Sounds like your screen resolution has gotten changed. Plug your VGA cable in and reset it to 1024x768. Then with the laptop on remove the VGA cable. When you connect your laptop to other devices like that, make sure you are not setting the resolution to the same as the TV.

Make sure your VGA cable works by using it on another computer or desktop just to rule out the possibility of a defective VGA cable. If the cable is good, then boot your computer as normal without the VGA cord and then once it is booted up, plug the VGA cable in, go to the start menu and type "multiple" into the search box. then click on "Set up your computer to use multiple monitors" and you should be able to fix it using those settings.

Your TV must have a VGA in port for your to be able to hook your computer to your TV. All you need is a regular VGA cord.

LG W2361V 23 Vga to HDMI Cable Not Working


You have a cable problem as no such thing as a VGA to HDMI cable exists.

HDMI is a didital signal and is thus not compatable with an anolog VGA signal. HDMI to DVI cables however do exist as both are digital signals.

Hope this helps.

Can i connect my acer aspire 4730z to my television so i can watch dvds


Yes of course.
First of all you will need to identify the available input ports on your TV. An RCA port is generally standard nowadays and it consists of a red, a white and yellow coloured reception ports (the colours may differ between tvs, i.e black instead of red). The red and white are for stero sound and the yellow is for video.
Modern TV systems also have a VGA adapter which is small flat port like the ones on a computer screen. This is usually blue.
A third option is an S-Video port, which is round in shape.

To connect your laptop using the RCA port, you will need an S-Video to RCA converter. You connect the S-Video to the port on your latptop, and through the converter to the RCA yellow port on your TV. For sound you will use another cable that connects to the headphone jack on your laptop and then splits to a white and a red cable to connect to your TV.

If you have VGA port on your TV, then connect the VGA port on your laptop to the VGA port on your TV. No converters needed. For sound you will use the same approach as above.

To use the third option you will need to have an s-video out port on your laptop and you will connect it directly to your TV s-video port. For sound, again you will use the approach as the rca solution.

Then, using your remote control, select the AV mode or depending on your TV select the PC or VGA mode.

Finally, to transfer the video from your laptop to your TV press and hold the Fn key on your laptop's keyboard and then the F7 or F9 key. (It has s small TV icon on it).

That's it!

Samsung LE26R7 4BD, approx 4 years old, colour distortions


Check all of your cables on the back of the tv and your sources such as Cable,Sat box and DVD palyer to make sure they are fully inserted into the input and output connectors. Some times Component cables will work loose and you end up with a missing color. Temprature changes can affect intermittant connections. If that does work then you have a bad Main bd.

Distorted color on hdmi output


If you haven't already stumbled across the fix: I just had the exact same problem after about eights months of casual use. Unplugging the DVD player for about 15 minutes and then plugging it back in "solved" the problem. Until next time it happens, anyway.

Plaid Screen


The problem is likely with your seine board or another video board. It will have distorted video/colors and you will see copies of the image in random sizes/places around the screen. If the toshiba menu is distorted it is in later stages of video, if not then earlier. More info will narrow down exacly which board. You can try reseating the LVDS cable, the computer looking one in the middle of the tv. It goes from the video board to the light engine. Unplug the tv and take off the back. The cable is usually white and has a D-type computer like connector with buttons or screws to unlock.
