Question about Computers & Internet
I connected from my PC's tv-out (rca) to my the back of my small TV (rca - video-in). I only get black and white pictures. I changed to a new cable..no luck. Tried adjusting the TV setting to PAL, NTSC, AUTO... no luck. I even tried the TV's front sockets.. no luck. I then tried on a different TV, no luck. Later tried on the second set of video-in on this TV. It works! But the thing is I need to get the first small TV to work with color. Could someone please help?
I had the same problem and nothing worked for me until I changed laptop settings to NTSC_M
So, briefly what I have: S-Video to S-Video cable, laptop (Thinkpad R51, Windows XP, with Intel(R) extreme graphics controler ) and TV set (Samsung, quite old one). The problem was that after connecting my laptop S-Video (4 pin) with S-Video (4 pin) of my TV, I had black and white (no colour) picture.
Solution is the folowing:
- connect your laptop and TV (both S-video 4 pins)
- mouse right click on your laptop desktop screen
- in the popup menu select: 'Graphics Properties'
- "Output to"
- select "TV"
- properties "NTSC_M"
keep in mind that if your are not connected to TV, Graphics Properties don't show TV as an option. So, that was very confusing for me, as I saw similar solution somewhere but was not able to find NTSC_M settings on my laptop
