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

It depends on the PC and the television, but in most cases, yes you can. You will have to see what video out options your PC has (usually VGA and S-Video for older computers and HDMI and DisplayPort for newer models) If you TV has the same kind of input, then all you need to do is buy a cable and put one end in each device. If your TV does NOT have the same input, you will likely need to buy an adapter. For example, if your computer has a VGA output (the blue one) and your TV has RCA inputs (yellow, white and red), then you will need to search for a VGA to RCA adapter. I've found a site that should help you with this process.
Thank you for using FixYa!
Assuming that your RCA 32 inch tv has an HDMI or VGA input, all you need is the proper cable to connect the two units. If your computer has a VGA out (blue female connector) and so does your TV, you would need a male to male VGA cable. If your computer has a DVI out (white connector), you would need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable. The combinations can me played around with depending on what connectors are on the back of the TV and what you have as an output for your PC.
The easiest and cheapest way is to purchase a cable called VGA to RCA below is the picture of it. You will connect the vga end to your computer where the computer monitor would plug in at. Then you will need a rca cable and run the yellow end from the vga to rca cable to the yellow input on your tv. Then you will have 2 cable left a white and red one, Then you will need to purchase a headphone to rca chord which is also shown below and you will plug that into where your speakers on the computer are plugged into (Usually the green spot) and then connect the white and red cable to it and then to the back of your tv. Once all that is setup then just turn on your computer and your tv and set you tv to the correct video input and your computer will be on your tv. Hope this helps you.
No, S-Video is video only. Look for the Audio output jack on your computer (usually its a lime green earphone hole). you will need a 3.5mm to RCA Stereo output wire, and attach the RCA audio to the AUX input of your TV, and then hook it to the Earphone/Speaker output jack on your computer. Then you will have to set your computer volume at about 75% (not all the way up, but more than halfway up). Then you can adjust the volume on the tv set. (just fyi, if you have bass boosting on the COMPUTER, turn that off, as well as any Equalizer or BASS/TREBEL booster. Set your mixers and boosters to NORMAL for best sound. not doing so could produce popping or scratching in the sound from the TV, also, if you have your PC volume higher than 75% that can also cause popping)
Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.
the following connections available to connect ur computer to an TV:
S-Video output: If you have video card(external u will have this), you require an s-video cable and you connect s-video out of your computer to the s-video int of our TV.
TV-OUT: if you have video card(external u wil have this) you you require an coxial cable and you have to connect TV-out of your computer to TV-IN of our TV(it is place where cable connection goes from your cable operator)
DVI-D: if you have video card(external u will have this) you require an DVI-D cable you haveto connect DVI-D out of your computer(a white 15-pin port which looks like VGA port) ....
VGA: it is the port on your computer which is only used to connect to your computer but not to your TV or LCD(strictly)
DVI to Composite Video (yellow) adapters are available in many online stores for mail order. You will need to get a separate mini-RCA jack to stereo RCA adapter to hook the audio output from the computer to the stereo audio (red and white) connections of the cable.
Search google for DVI to composite video adapter, and the mini-RCA adapter can be found at most home entertainment or electronics stores (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)
