(Toshiba Satelite Laptop- Panasocic Viera TV) After connecting the Laptop to TV, via HDMI cable, nothing is displaying on TV. What settings do we need to use, to configure the two?

First you may want to go to the TV's menu and select the input to which you have plugged in the HDMI cable.

Second, on the laptop you will have to press a key combination to change the display from the built-in LCD screen to the external output.
It is Fn + F5 on most Toshibas, you will have to look for a function key with an icon symbolizing a internal/external screen like this:

It works like a 3-way toggle; when you hold the Fn key and press F5 repeatedly it circles through the following options:
- internal LCD only
- internal LCD + external monitor (both)
- external monitor only

If you want to see the picture on the LCD as well, you have to stop at the "both" option, but the resolution will be limited to the one of your laptop screen.
If you want to use the full resolution of the TV (like Full-HD) you need to stop at the "external" only and adjust your laptop display settings to optimum/maximum resolution for your TV.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

I need set the output signal from the pc for tv how?

I had many issues trying to do this as well. There were several times when I tried to do it and it didn't want to accept the connection. You may try enabling the 2nd monitor connection in the settings for the graphics properties. I tried several different things and then it finally worked. Sorry I am not much more help other than that. You might also try the function key and the F5 key i believe. (monitor/LCD/TV key). Hope this can give you a little more insight into getting the problem fixed.

Connecting laptop to hd tv

IMake sure that you have the laptop for an VGA OUTPUT. When you toggle between the function keys. When your laptop LCD goes out it is in VGA OUT mode....when you toggle again it should be in LCD/VGA OUT (both TV and laptop should display). You need to set the TV to VGA mode as well...otherwise you might not get an output. If you still have a problem then test on a regular monitor to see if you are getting an output to the monitor

Toshiba Satellite L25-S1194 attached to TV monitor can't get display on laptop at same time HELP!!


Connect your TV to the computer with an S-Video cable. Turn the TV on and choose the AV option (of your TV) to S-Video. It will tell you that there is no signal on the TV.Press the Fn key on the keyboard. While keeping that key pressed, press the F5 key. A small rectangle appears on the screen showing different connection possibilities (LCD, LCD +TV, LCD+CRT, TV only, CRT only). You can cycle through the options by pressing F5 repeatedly. You select the output option (TV + LCD).Release the keys . You will then have your two screens.

Note: I assumed you connect the TV through the S-Video. If your TV can be used as a monitor (it has a VGA adaptor), then with the F5 key select option LCD and CRT

Hope it helps

Dell Inspiron 1300 can't connect external monitor

I was having the same problrm for my dell inspiron 1300. It is not FN + f5. It is fn +f8. Notice the Crt/LCD...

No composite video output


To activate the TV output, the Fn + F? would have to be pressed. This is to cycle through the choices such as LCD, TV + LCD or TV olny. F? would be the function key with the small monitor icon. Additionally, it is required that the Screen Resolution in the Settings tab of the Display Properties be lowered down to match the capacity of the TV. Most/regular TVs can only display 640 X 480 or 800 X 600. In some cases, it would also be necessary to lower down the Screen Refresh Rate sometimes as low as 60 Hz.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Try fn key, And LCD/TV Or LCD/VGA usually marked on 1 of The number ( Numerical ) Or F Keys.

Remember to switch back before closing down, Otherwise the laptop will try to look for the projector.

The other option is to see, which device is set to boot first from the systems Bios.

I want to use plasma tv as external monitor

Your laptop is not set to enable the external video output.

Most likely, your laptop has a key that says "RGB/LCD" or something similar on it. This key cycles through the various video output options, enabling the laptop's LCD, the external RGB output, or both simultaneously. Most laptops require you to hold down the function key ("FN") when pressing the "RGB/LCD" key to cycle through the options.
