Well you can't. You can, however use the S-video to S-video connections or S-video to composite (RCA jacks) connectors and bingo! Knowing what laptop you have would have made my answer more direct as a 20 year old 50lb laptop might have a connector of a different kind like a VGA 15 pin connector with a bunch of DIP switches that will work for an Apple or a PC but my crystal ball shows a modern laptop with an S-video output connector. ~Steve

I want to connect my windows 7 laptop to panasonic tx 32lxd500 to watch youtube


If you laptop has a vga out and the tv has a vga in use that. Better yet some newer laptops have HDMI output . HDMI would be best if available. You may have to go into display setting on laptop to adjust screen size.

Can you help with connecting a laptop VGA to a philips hdtv lcd (model #32pf7421d) with a component cable? The laptop recognizes that it is connected, but nothing comes up on the TV except for...


Check your laptop with the same VGA cord on some projector or a monitor. If it works there, then there is a problem with your TV's VGA switching circuit. If it does not work, then there is problem with either the VGA cord or laptop's VGA port. To rule out the possibility VGA cord , replace it with new one. Please give the feedback for this so that further diagnosis can be done, if you are comfortable with the TV's electronics.

I'm trying to connect my Dell xps pc M1530 to my samsung lg tv. I have a 15pin vga cord connected. Still not working. Can you walk me through these steps?


Hello,

After connecting the VGA cord, try the following:

  1. 1. On our laptop, go to display settings (right-click on desktop > properties) to see if you have the ability to switch to different monitors.
  2. On your TV, check if you have to switch through connection type (HDMI, VGA, etc...)
Hope this helps.

LCD VGA Display goes on and off.


Check refresh rate and setting for external display output. It won't work with unsuitable screen resolution, color depth or refresh rate. Check all three points and I believe you can troubleshoot the problem this way.

Note on some laptop you need to activate external video output by pressing a combination of keys, this will swap between laptop LCD video and external video.
