Hi,

To activate the TV output, the Fn + F? would have to be pressed. This is to cycle through the choices such as LCD, TV + LCD or TV olny. F? would be the function key with the small monitor icon. Additionally, it is required that the Screen Resolution in the Settings tab of the Display Properties be lowered down to match the capacity of the TV. Most/regular TVs can only display 640 X 480 or 800 X 600. In some cases, it would also be necessary to lower down the Screen Refresh Rate sometimes as low as 60 Hz.

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.

Can this tv be hooked up to a computer?


Since this TV has no VGA input but has composite video input (RCA yellow jack) , your computer must have this type of output, if it doesn't, you'll have to buy a VGA to video converter, this can be found at Electronics/computer parts store.

How do hook a nintendo to a tv


The first step is to check what types of outputs provides your Nintendo, the most common is video composite and stereo outputs (yellow, red and white RCA jacks), the second sted is tochek if your TV has the same type inputs, then you must have the cable (with 3 RCA plugs at both sides), these are analog signals, if your TV has only digital input signals (HDMI) and your Nintendo doesn't, you'll have to get a converter from analog to digital video and audio.

I nedd to play my computer on this tv i need help


This being a CRT style projection set is not really designed to work with a computer/laptop.
If your computer has a composite video output, it should be able to work. This is a analog video output and would be a RCA connector. Most computers have a audio output and most of the time it is a stereo mini jack. So if you have a RCA video jack output on your computer you can hook it to the yellow video in of video1. If you have a stereo mini jack cable that has 2 RCA connectors at the other end, you would plug the mini jack in the audio out of the computer and plug the RCA Jacks into the red and white connectors of video1. Some computers will have a key you will need to press to activate the video output instead of the monitor output.
I hope this is clear enough.

I have a laptop and a tv. I would like to hook my laptop up to the tv. The tv does not have a slot for a VGA CABLE and my laptop does not have a slot for an RCA CABLE. What can I do to connect the two?


You need an Video out, adapter cable, for your model Laptop, IF yours indeed does have the ability to TV out, the "output" is "Composite Video" and goes into the Composite Video "IN" on the TV. Audio is taken from Line Out in laptop & goes to AV audio in, via a Phono Jack to RCA converter plug. Also it must have correct drivers and be enabled and have desktop extended to the TV either Cloned or Spanned.
Usually one connects up to the TV, powers TV on & then Turn your laptop on.
You may have a Yellow RCA socket on the back/side of your laptop, otherwise you have to get a converter cable.

I am trying to hook up my tv with a vga to av(rca) cable,but I can't get it to work.What do I have to do to get it to work?


If your notebook has RCA composite video out, you need to hook it up to TV composite video input jack, usually the color of this RCA jack will be yellow. Why do you not use the VGA port on the back of the note book to feed the signal into the TV's VGA connector, just mke sure to set the resolution of the laptop to be at TV native resolution.

Receiver to tv hook-up


Is this a Pioneer receiver? They have the prefix of VSX but I can not locate that model on Pioneers website. It could be because it is an older model and no service information is on the website for receivers older than about 5 years old.

To answer your question I need more information. Do you want to connect the video switching of the receiver to the TV or just want the sound of the TV to go to the receiver? I would also need to know what type of video devices you want to connect and what type of inputs and outputs your TV has.

Most TV's have at least a composite video input, that is the most common type. it is a yellow RCA jack on the back of the TV and will be listed as an "input". That is what would be connected to the video output jack (yellow RCA) of the receiver from the TV for video switching. Then you need video sources connected to the video inputs of the receiver to go to the TV. You also need to connect the audio RCA cables from the video devices to the receiver on the proper video inputs that you have connected. Each video input for composite or S-video has audio RCA jacks (red and white) inputs so you can hear the sound of your video device on the receiver.

If you only want to play the sound from your TV on the recevier, you can use the audio output RCA jacks on the TV and connect them to an audio input of the receiver. This is a very simple way of using the receiver for all the different devices connected to the TV without having to connect everything to the receiver and then always having to have the receiver on any time you watch TV. The audio RCA jacks are always the red and white jacks. you just need to make sure you are using the output jacks of the TV and they are connected to an input jack on the receiver. Then you must switch the receiver to what ever input you just connected the TV to, like the "Video 1" or "Video 2" or maybe "Aux" input.

I hope this helps, but you didn't give much information on how you wanted to connect them.

A good rating would be appreciated if you found this free information helpful.

Let me know if you need any more help,

Dave

Hooking my laptop to tv


Your laptop must have either:
- a composite video output (round yellow jack with just one hole in it) that goes to the video input which all TV's have.
- a s-video output (larger round jack with several pins) that goes to the s-video input which almost all TV's have.
- or just use the monitor output (15-pin dsub jack) that very few TV's have.
