I know this is an old thread, but I had a similar issue with a Protron PLTV-3250. I kept getting 'invalid mode' when trying to use it in a dual screen configuration on my PC. I found that this particular TV has an odd max resolution of 1368x769, but by default Windows was setting at the standard resolution of 1366x768, causing the 'invalid mode' message. Despite having defaulted to the wrong resolution for the TV, Windows still seemed to recognize the TV's native resolution and did have that option available in the display settings. So after setting the resolution up a notch to 1368x769, what do ya know, it works! This ****** is bright though! Way brighter than the 21 inch lcd sitting next to it.

Hi,

I believe that you have connected it correctly since the Windows log-on is displayed. It may be that the Screen Resolution of your desktop is a bit high and therefore would have to be lowered to match the capacity of the Akai 32LW7. Pls try 1366 x 768 pixels or lower. You could also lower the laptop's screen refresh rate. Additionally, some laptops have to be toggled to activate external VGA by pressing Fn + F? keys to cycle through LCD, LCD + external, External only. The F? key would be the one with the monitor icon.

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.

Hi I'm trying to connect my laptop to play photographs through the TV screen using windows XP. No success at the moment. How do I connect up please? And can i get a manual for the TV anywhere...


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.

I was told this would work from a laptop to tv but i cant find where or how to plug into laptop. what out and in should it be and what type of cord? do u have a manual or help list?


I don't really know what you mean but here's my answer:
laptop to TV can be done via VGA or HDMI, HDMI will give also send sound trough the cable to your TV.
both your TV and laptop must support one of these options or it will not work
here is what it looks like:
VGA : http://www.pc-helpforum.be/attachments/f184/2074d1243082457-live-voetbal-zien-via-laptop-naar-vga-kabel-mannelijk-mannelijk-.jpg HDMI : https://www.free-box.nl/images/HDMI_cable.jpg
most laptops should have VGA and most newer ones should have HDMI options
after connecting the cable you can hold windows + p for some basic options

ps: sorry for bad english

My girlfriend is trying to connect a Belkin VGA/SVGA cable from her laptop to her Akai LCT2070 but the tv does not detect the cable and she cannot get her desktop to the TV screen


At the rear or side of the PC there should be either or both of a 15 Pin DIN Plug, HDMI socket. or a Yellow RCA or 4 -7 pin DIN. Now IF these are present then YES you can connect to a TV. Now some TV's have a connector a DB15 MALE, so that the cable from the PC to the TV, is DB15. this plugs in directly, with appropriate DB15 cable. This, however, will ONLY take the VIDEO to the TV, Audio is delivered via the "Audio Out" Jack on PC, and Plugged into the AV Sockets on the TV, with a dual cored coaxial cable, they are Red & White. Some PC's also have a Yellow RCA Connector, OR a 4 -7 Pin DIN Socket, that requires a Special Adapter Cable (That generally came with the unit, and are colored and marked as to output) to use, for Video/Audio Out to TV. This signal is Composite or SVHS Video & Stereo Out. This connects up TO the TV's Composite/SVHS input Jacks and the Red & White Audio IN, RCA Jacks, &/or DIN SVHS socket.
First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get the adapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correct TV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you need to "Enable" that Monitors, the TV's, Desktop. You need to set either a "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "Display Settings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/output display settings. Adjust the screens resolution via the resoloution "Slider", it is best to start with, 800x600 32 bit color. or even lower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution, your TV can handle, find out from manual. Once it is all connected up. It should all just work great. Now, from then on, &, to get it to work every-time, the process is. Turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON. Then, startup the PC up. It should "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor & One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop appear after a bit. Now you have screen 1 & screens 2. Now, if you are using "Cloned" mode, then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed on the TV. If you used Spanned, mode, in this mode, however, you will have to."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, you have one "Big Desktop". Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of those have thier OWN, Control Panel, this, all then can make it all a lot easier to do it. So I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, or just want to do it by hand, then the the "By Hand" method is the only way.There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control over dual displays, and is well worth installing.

I connected my laptop to my LCD TV using VGA cable. I changed the mode to VGA external monitor. Image/video appear perfectly fine during start up. but right after windows logged in for like 5 second the...


Easy way:
Press and hold Fn key, and then look at the F1-F10 keys.. Most likely it is F7, and has a picture like a computer screen.
So, press and hold Fn key, and then press F7 (or whatever key it is for your laptop). This will change your "presentation" settings, and thus switch back and forth from laptop screen, laptop screen + external screen (TV), just external screen (TV).
-------------

If this doesn't work as you expect, just try:

Instructions for Windows XP:

Open the Display Properties window by:
Start -> Run -> %windir%\system32\control.exe desk.cpl,@0,3
(this is the same window where you can change screen resolution).

There you will see two or more "screens", labeled: 1, 2, 3.

Click on "1", and you'll see:

[X] Use this device as the primary monitor
[X[ Extent Windows desktop onto this monitor

Click on "2", this is your TV.. Mark

[ ]
[X] Extent Windows desktop onto this monitor

Then change the resolution to 800x600.
Click Apply

=> now your TV should start showing you a picture.
You can move your mouse between the laptop screen and the TV screen.

If you want just the TV, you can make "2" to be your primary monitor, by clicking on [X] Use this device as the primary monitor.
