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 get my hdmi to work for my ps3 system


Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.

To reset video output settings:

  1. Turn the PS3 system off by holding the Power button on the front of the console till you see the power light turn red.
  2. Then hold the power button on the front of the console for at least five seconds until you hear a second beep to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

Minimum Requirements

  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system

  • TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port
    You need to know the TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port on your TV. For instance, if your TV has multiple "Input" or "Video" channels, (i.e., "Input 1", "Input 2", "Input 3", etc.), you will need to toggle through each "Input" channel on your TV until you find the correct channel that displays the HDMI picture. This is important to remember, especially if you do not see the HDMI picture after you connect the cable and configure the PS3 settings. Please refer to the TV instruction manual for more information.

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".
----------------
The link to the manual is below.

Msi tv out


If the TV has a VGA port, then you can connect the U100 directly to the TV. Otherwise, you will need a converter depending on the inputs of the TV.

In the case of a VGA port on the TV, turn off the TV and the netbook before connecting the two devices. Then turn on the TV and set it to the VGA input. Then turn on the computer. The monitor should be recognized when the OS boots up. You can press <Fn>+<F2> to force the communication. In the Display properties (right click on the desktop), you should be able to change the display mode.

For composite video, the converter option uses devices like these: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-composite-video/c10000-c11200-c11213-p1.html . Again turn off all devices before connecting them and turn on the computer last. If a TV has only an RF (antenna) input, you can connect the VGA to composite converter to an RF modulator. However, signal losses may degrade the video.

I hope this helps.

First thing would be to check all the input settings on the TV and Receiver. Without knowing how it's connected, follow the cables from the Direct TV receiver to the AV receiver then to the TV and note the location. (input name) on the electronics back panel. Then make sure the TV is on that input, (Video1, Video 2, etc) Same on the AV Receiver, make sure the name on the back of the unit where the video cable is plugged into is displayed on the front of the Receivers display (CBL/SAT, HDTV, etc.) Lastly, make sure all the products are "on" especially the Direct TV receiver. It happens! Hope this helps. If you still have an issue, post a comment/reply and I can help you further diagnose the problem.

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.

What do i need to use t3500 to watch tv


  • 1

    Determine what kind of video line-in connection the TV has. These connections are typically on the back or side of the TV. You also will need to determine what kind of video line-out connection the computer has.

    Types of video connections include S-Video, VGA, DVI and HDMI. The Resources section of this article offers links to sites that will help you identify the connection type of your TV and computer.

  • 2

    Purchase a video connection cable that is for the type of connection that the computer and TV share. For example, if the TV and computer both have S-Video ports, you should purchase an S-Video cable. S-Video connections are the most common and least expensive option.

  • 3

    Connect the end of the S-Video cable that matches the connection on the computer to the computer video line-out port. Connect the other end to the video line-in port of the same kind on the TV.

  • 4

    Convert video from VGA video to S-Video or even component video. Do this if the two connection ports on the computer and TV are not compatible. You will need to purchase a scan converter box, a VGA video cable, and either an S-Video or component video cable. Connect the cable that will connect to the computer jack to the computer and the converter box, and connect the S-Video or component video cable to the TV and the converter box.

  • 5

    Turn on the TV and use the remote control to select "Input." Some TVs will have multiple selections. Turn on the computer and play a movie or display an image on the screen. As you are scrolling through the "Input" options on the television, you will see a matching image of what you opened on your computer on the TV screen when the correct input is selected.

  • 6

    Adjust the screen resolution on the computer if the image on the TV is distorted, too small or too large. Do this by going into Control Panel and Display Settings on the computer. Select a different screen resolution until the image on the TV fits the TV screen

    Step 1
    Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
    Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

    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.
