How do I connect my laptop to my Sony LCD TV? I have tried the recommended RGB on the back of the TV to the RGB monitor port on my Toshiba computer. All I get is 'no syns' on the TV screen. Can you help?
Thanks, Tony Cull; email@example.com

You'll need to make sure that your laptop & LCD TV have an HDMI port. If they both do, simply connect an HDMI cable from your laptop to your LCD TV and make sure the input on the LCD TV is set to receive A/V from the HDMI port.
1) Verify that the resolution on the PC is set to a supported level for the TV. Usually the TV will show "no signal" if the resolution is out of range or the message "out of range" will appear.
2) You don't indicate whether you are connecting to a desktop or laptop. If a laptop, you may need to turn on the external monitor. This is done by using the function key and either F5 or F6 (the key should have a picture of a screen on it). Hitting this combination will toggle between the main screen with.without the external monitor.
3) Verify that the TV port is selected correctly (AV1,AV2 etc)
4) You will need a separate cable or the audio regardless of the system type. Also verify that the audio cable is in the corresponding audio input jacks for the video option selected.
If you have completed the above and it still doesn't work, please post the details about the computer being used and the exact cable setup that you have and I'll check into this further.
You can connect any laptop to any TV with an SVGA port by use of a pair of Baluns. These run about $49 each; you need two. Try MCM.com. They have several models. As long as your LCD has an SVGA or VGA monitor input the baluns will emable you to send a signal from laptop to display.
Most laptops have a combination of buttons you have to press on the keyboard to get it to output on the monitor output. Try pressing the FUNCTION KEY or FUNC/FN key usually found in the bottom left hand side of the keyboard. Keep that button held down while press one of the number keys. Usually the number key will have a picture of a TV screen on it. Might be number 8 or 9. Press both keys at the same time a you can switch between laptop screen, Sony LCD or you can have both..
