Question about Sony KV-36FS17 36" TV

Hooking a computer up using this TV as the monitor

The computer is a Dell desktop Dimension 4700 - about 4 years old. No S Cable hook up but it does have a DVI connector in the back for a monitor. Is there a way to do this? I've had several answers but would like to hear a more expert opinion. We were told we can buy a computer audio output to a stereo cable. That should take care of the audio but what about the video? Is there a solution? Thanks! mamalu5@comcast.net

Hooking up old Sanyo box tv with old magnavox vcr


You need a TV cable though ANY cable might work. But definitively the only way to connect a VCR co a TV is through the antena setting TV to channel 3 or 4.
Even if you can't see it, all old TV sets must have an antena input.
If you can't find it, call a TV repairman, should help to make a connection.

I have a one year old Broksonic 19" flat screen LCD TV. I wanted to use it as a computer monitor, so I hooked up the VGA cord and selected PC as the input. Nothing. What am I doing wrong? Charles...


Is the computer set to send data to the video port? Laptops often have the external port disabled; check the BIOS. (This is often accessed by pressing F1, Esc or F2 before the OS loads. Check your documentation.) Then you can set the preferred monitor by looking at the Display settings.

Some desktops have a similar issue where only one port is active (DVI, HDMI, and VGA). You may need to connect a different monitor via the enabled port or use an adapter to get the VGA cable to mate with that port to change settings. (In the case of computers with video graphics cards and motherboard video ports, only one item is active. Try moving your cable with an adapter if needed to one of the other ports. Then change the BIOS setting if you do not want to continue using the adapter.)

Try a different video cable and make sure it is fully connected to both the computer and the monitor. Damaged cables are always suspect.

What OS are you using? Do you need to download drivers for the Broksonic? Go to www.broksonic.com and ask in the Product support section - they don't seem to have a direct link on the site. (For example some TVs are not compatible with the drivers in the Mac OS.)

I hope this helps.

Hooking up DVD/VCR combo to directTV and console RCA


I'd first just hook up the DVD/VCR to the TV and get that working. I'm assuming all you need is the standard cable type connection. This will at least your 4 year old happy. Then you can experiment with the S cable. The S cable will give a cleaner signal from the DVD to the TV. then hook up audio and video cables from the Direct TV to the DVD input. The audio and video will be cleaner using S cables and audio and video cables, but stadard TV cable should get you going. You didn't mention what model DVD player you have. You may have to select the correct inout on the DVD for the Direct TV connection.

Sound is ridiculously low


if it is a stereo tv, there should be rca jacks on the back of the tv [red,white yellow] try connecting the rca outputs to a stereo system and see if the volume is any different.there might be a loose connection to the tv speakers inside.if you have a cable box hooked up to your tv, check the connections in back. you can also try bypassing the cable box by connecting the cable wire directly into the tv to see if it's the tv. if it is the cable box try unplugging it for a minute then hook it up again.i had the same problem with my cable box. hooking it up to a stereo system sounds like a pain, but at least you will have sound.
good luck
