Trying to use the s-video input to display my computer screen on my tv (to watch movies and such). I have an old tube tv and a panasonic sa-he75 receiver for my dvd and tape player. However, I plug in the s-video cable, reset my computer and tell it to mirror images from my monitor onto the tv and the computer recognizes it but nothing shows on the tv monitor?? i tried all display channels... any advise??

Re: S video input not putting out :)
To get the s-video to work you cannot have a component or rca video input while using the s-video for input to the tv
if it is still not working then you may have a problem internally and it will need testing to find the culprit
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

how about in the menu button you can not get an adjustment in brightness control. if the display in the screen is too dark either in any channel or even watching a movie from an input source like dvd player, then i may say that the picture tube need now replacement.
Looks like you have tried to connect two together, when either or both were in switched on condition. It is not advisable to connect any input, when the device is on. First, check for any changes in settings. Then, if these are ok, switch off TV manually, switch off power and just disconnect the TV from the mains outlet and leave it like that for 48 hours and retry.
For making the physical connection between PC and TV first we need video cable. PC has S-Video port that should be connect to the S-Video input of your TV using S-Video cable. Connect the computer to the TV using VGA ports or via the DVI to HDMI cable. These Macs need Adapter for a VGA cable. RCA for audio, connect RCA to your PC and red and white colored sockets of RCA cable to TV (left audio-white, right audio-red). In your PC open the Display Settings and activate output to the TV screen. In your TV open the menu from that open the External inputs. And change the video to HDMI depends on the connection. You can also change the screen resolution of your TV using the Personalize and Display Settings options in your Control Panel on PC.
After giving the connections you can watch the movies and everything is running on laptop on TV.
The TV doesn't output the TV as such, UNLESS it has what is called a "Monitor" Output Sockets on it. Then you can connect up to, say another "Screen" or Take the Outgoing Video, & Sound, and "Record" it to a PC, via a Video INPUT via a TV/Video INPUT card. BUT you cannot play the TV on the laptop, FROM the TV. like you wish to do. If your laptop has a TV card INSIDE your laptop, then you could use that and display the OUTPUT from that TV cards' tuner, on the TV. But not the "other" way around. That SVHS is ONLY an INPUT out from your PC. You can put you system into either "Cloned"mode, IE: Whats displayed on laptop screen,is also displayed on the TV, Or, you can have as you seem to now, Extended Desktop. I hope this clears things up for you. Also when using that SVHS connection the Audio comes OUT on the Red & White AV sockets on the set. So you need that cable and another pair for the Audio..
If your laptop has a s-video output you can get a s-video cable that goes from your laptop to your tv's AV input. You then just have to activate the alternative display on your laptop to make it work if it doesn't detect it automatically. Hope this helps.
You don't go into display properties; you just tell your computer to output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and another key on your keyboard; sometimes its F4...it will have a picture of a screen on it...
Looking at a blurry picture of the keyboard, it looks like the key could be F7.
So, first connect your computer to the cable and to the TV. Set the TV on the input that you are inputting to. Press FN + F7 and it will route the display from your screen to the output. If you press Fn + F7 again, it may route the display to both the screen and the TV.
Thanks and please remember to give this a thumbs up rating.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control. 4.14.2 Viewing Modes Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3). Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom. Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles. Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.
Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode will return to widescreen.
