Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

How to turn on rgb from lap top to tv.


In order to connect your laptop to your TV using RGB, you need an RGB adapter. RGB is also known as component video; it breaks up a video signal into red, green and blue. laptops do not have RGB outputs. However, many laptops have VGA, DVI or HDMI outputs. An RGB adapter connects the single VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable to an RGB cable, which is actually three different cables tied together. INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Connect either the VGA, DVI or HDMI (in the order of increasing video quality) cable to the VGA, DVI or HDMI port on your laptop, depending on what is available. 2. Connect the other end of the cable to the side of the RGB adapter with the single input. 3. Connect the RGB cables to the red, green and blue ports on the other side of the RGB adapter. 4. Connect the other end of the RGB cables to an available component input on the back of the TV. 5. Tune the TV to the component video input you used through your television's menu. 6. Turn on your laptop. The laptop should now display on your TV screen.

I want to connect my computer to the pioneer sd-643hd5 tv so I can view movies, pictures etc; The tv only has pin connections, cable connection, s-video connection, and a RGB port for HDTV broadcasting....


depending on the connections available on your pc, you can get a vga to rgb cable fairly cheap but I am not sure on how good the quality will be, same with the s-video connection. vga connections on the pc are usually blue in colour, if you have dvi connection you can get a similar cable to do the job. Most computers will auto sense the tv if you connect the cables with the pc switched off, make sure you are on the right channel on the tv and the switch on the pc.

hope this helps

I am trying to connect my Laptop to my tv Screen,so as to enable the family to watch alltogether. can you please advise. Thankyou


This is a very simple procedure to do. All you need to do is follow the instructions that i give to you below.
1. Get a signal cable(the cable that connects your monitor to your system unit).
2. After obtaining this cable get one end of the cable connected to the RGB PC port at the back of your TV(the port that has similar plugs to the port in which this cable fits into at the back of your CPU).
3. Connect the other end of this cable to the same type of port on your computer. It is usually by one of the sides of the Laptop.
4. Your computer may flicker or go blank at first but don't worry if the display doesn't come back once this cable is connected at both ends.
5. Change your Tv output to the RGB PC output frequency.
At this point, all the display and activities should be reflected on the TV screen and you can put any movies or programs for your family to watch together.
If you are having any problems setting this up, let me know and please let me know if you were able to set it up properly.
Hope it helped you?

There are a number of things to check here:

1) Verify that the resolution on the PC is set to a supported level for the TV. Usually the TV will show "no signal" if the resolution is out of range or the message "out of range" will appear.

2) You don't indicate whether you are connecting to a desktop or laptop. If a laptop, you may need to turn on the external monitor. This is done by using the function key and either F5 or F6 (the key should have a picture of a screen on it). Hitting this combination will toggle between the main screen with.without the external monitor.

3) Verify that the TV port is selected correctly (AV1,AV2 etc)

4) You will need a separate cable or the audio regardless of the system type. Also verify that the audio cable is in the corresponding audio input jacks for the video option selected.

If you have completed the above and it still doesn't work, please post the details about the computer being used and the exact cable setup that you have and I'll check into this further.


Thanks,
Dan

Connect hdtv to laptop wirelessly


Hi cjb63hc
Your first question is how to use the TV as your computer display. No matter which brand of LCD TV you buy, they all will have a connection port for a PC or laptop. TV's and laptops do not supply the cables.
What you need are these:
  1. VGA cable - You already have this, if you have a desktop computer. It is the cable which connects the PC to the monitor. Both ends look the same with 15 pins. OR you can buy another cable called HDMI cable the cost of which is $30 to $40
  2. You use this cable to connect the laptop to the TV. If you need to buy this from an electronic shop, costs under $10.
  3. You alsoo need a cable for the sound. This cable is called 3.5 mm stereo mini jack cable also called Audeo Cable. Make sure the size is correct. This will be connected from PC or laptop to the TV. The price is around $5.
You have seen people connecting the laptop to an external monitor. Here the external monitor is the TV.

The second questio- CD/DVD player. Usually they come with the necessary RGB cables. I don't think that would a big problem to figure out.

Hope this will help you. If you find this answer helpful, why don' tyou give a rating?
Have a very good day.

Need to hook up laptop to TV


If you have an HDMI port you might also have an RGB port, use your tv video source button and go through your options. If RGB option is listed you have it. It's a standard moniter port, you can use a standard monitor cable to hook things up. This will not however carry sound so you'll need a basic 3.5mm size cable that ends in an RCA plug (can be picked up radio shack.

I use this method to watch hulu.com movies on my 50" plasma tv.

Another option if you have an "S" video on both the laptop and the tv, use that with just an "S" video cable.

Other wise look for a RGB cable that converts to standard RCA stereo plugs again Radio Shack should be able to help you. You can also buy cables on eBay a lot cheaper then a retail store.

Lenovo T60 interfacing with Vizio HDTV using RGB cable


The X1400 supports Full-HD resolution. Full-HD/True-hd (1920x1080)
The best output would be via DVI but you are limited with the VGA port.
I would purchase a Grand Hi-Wire PC to HDTV converter from www.globalcomputer.com. Item # G126-1036 @ $139.99

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
