How to turn on S-video input

I have a working JensenTS2050J 20" TV. I need to display my computer screen on the TV. The only way to go directly from Laptop to TV is via S-Video. The laptop sees something connected to it's S-Video output, but I can't get the TV to see the S-Video connection. I have the remote and it works for everything else. I do not have the mannual for the TV.
Can you help please?

    This solution did not work> The problem is not with the computer. It is with the TV.

  • TremendusTim Nov 06, 2008

    Neither one of the solutions proposed helped.
    There is no option on the TV for S-video. I finally got ahold of the previous owner of the TV and he talked me through the steps to get the TV recognize the S-Video signal.

    Please refund the $9.99 charge to my credit card.

If you have anything else plugged into the tv's video input ( the yellow jack) the s-video will not work
set the display settings for the tv and you will have to restart the computer with the s-video still connected , if you see the tv get the start up screen then it should be hooked up right and working right

    The remote is very standard and vanilla. The television controls are very standard and easy to navigate. The TS2050J
    sports 2x A/V inputs as well as component, S-video and RCA connections.
    The secondary A/V input is located on the left side of the unit, which
    makes it easy to connect external peripherals (camcorders, consoles,
    etc) without disrupting the front-face of the set. Considering the
    price range of this television, the additional inputs are definitely a
    bonus.

Check the display properties of the laptop. Right click in an open area of your desktop and select "properties" from the menu that appears. Then go to the "settings" tab and see if the s-video is activated. It could be detecting the TV, but still not activated. You may need to enable "dual monitor" settings.

How do i change the input


The 27" TV uses the same instructions as the 20", and I found the manual for you at the link below. Answering your question directly, here is the section of the instructions about changing input:
-----
Changing the TV's Input Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, if you've connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR & DVD) using the Video/Audio input,you will want to be able to view the signal from the component.To do this, you will need to switch from the ' TV ' input to the 'AV1-AV3, CVI' Input, as follows. 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then " Set-Up " menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHV buttons to select " Input ". 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change the input source from ' TV ' to 'AV1, AV2, AV3, CVI'. 4 Wait 20 seconds, or press DISPLAY button or MENU button to return to normal TV viewing. * CVI means the Component Video Input (Y/ PB/ PR) from the DVD player etc.* Users can also select these input modes with the TV/AV button or the INPUT button on theremote controller. * On the AV1 mode , if you connect the S-VHS jack to your TV, "AV1" is changed to "S-VIDEO".

Is this a HD ready tv if not what would help?


Based on the specs for the TV, the DS31520 is not an HD-ready display. It is at best an SD display with an NTSC (analog tuner). (Picture resolution: 330 lines, video input 660 lines) OTA ATSC signals are 480i (SD), 720p or 1080i (HD) where those are the number of horizontal lines of pixels. The manual is available here: http://www.sanyotv.com/DS31520%20%28ESF%29%203178--.pdf .

This is a fine TV for analog cable or OTA TV with a standard digital to analog converter box (which only give SD output). The TV has composite video and S-video inputs (again limited to SD).

For HD, you will need a new TV screen that can display more rows of data.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Emerson 42 inch television flat screen HDTV: i connected a DVI to HDMI cable to dell computer screen to television in order to display computer screen to it but the signal isn't working, how do i...


Your Dell Monitor does not have a video output. The DVI/HDMI cable needs to run from the DVI-Out of you computer tower directly to the TVs HDMI input, ideally one with a red/white analog audio input next to it, because that cable only provides a video signal. If you don't have a DVI out on your computer, perhaps your TV has a VGA input. If your computer/video card only has one monitor connector, then you can only connect the Monitor OR the TV.

No problem, wondering if I'm able to connect this TV to my laptop to connect to the internet and if so what do I need to do this.


Yes, you should be able to. You will need to buy a $20 adapter. Sewell Direct sells them, also Amazon.com. They are called VGA to RCA composite video converter. This will convert your laptop's VGA output to RCA composite video for connection to your TV yellow video input. Connect an audio cable from laptop's earphone output to the TV's RCA audio inputs (white and red) using a 3.5mm to RCA adapter cable available at Radio Shack for about $10. This will work. You can see everything that the laptop displays on the TV. You can even hookup a VCR to record it all.

Using the TV's remote and having the TV on,
hold down the "reset" button and manually turn off the TV directly from the unit.(not the remote)
Release the "reset" button.
Turn the TV back on-directly from the unit.(not the remote)
A dialog box will appear on your screen.
Choose "Auto" by pushing the + on Channel Selection button on the unit (not the remote).
Use the TV/DVD selection to return to your cable input.

Video input permanently displayed


If there is no "input video" button on the control panel of this series of set, as like the older Sony sets had, you need to order the original remote from the Sony service center, or Sony parts directly. Universal remotes (any that I know of) will not access this menu in your Sony set.

Lost audio & video


You say that you lost audio and video but the screen is blue. That indicates that the majority of the circuits are working OK. To display anything on the screen the high voltage and drive circuits would be working ok. Try an input other than cable (the tuner input) and see what happens. If your unit works through those inputs then you have a bad tuner or matrix IC. If that doesn't give you any results then you probably have a microprocessor issue. The bad news is that Apex does not support their equipment so if the problem is not simple it will probably not be reparable. Good luck.
