Question about SansuiS3245 TV

Using TV as external monitor

I bought an Svideo cable with an Svideo plug on one end - to go into my laptop - and an RCA plug on the other end to plug into the front of the TV. I plugged it in and 1) it distorted the display on my laptop and 2) I didn't get any display on the TV in either Aux1 or Aux2 modes. What do I need to do?

I have sound but no video

The Television is looking for SVIDEO, which is a separate standard. Since SVIDEO does not provide Audio, it uses RCA audio cables. Try switching to a Video in or AV IN setting.

How do I hook up a dvd player?

Hello Andy, Hi!, you can hook up your DVD in 3 ways. 1. using standard RCA cables, 2, using Svideo cables, and 3. using HDMI cables. Depending on your player. I suggest you buy the RCA cable. they are color coded so the yellow goes to the player Video out to the TV video in, red and white cables goes to the Left and Right channel of the player audio out to the TV audio in. thats it.

Want to hook up old tv model ds32224 to my pc

Hi there
To answer your question;
First on your pc you will need a video card that has either composite or svideo output.
Then you`ll need a single rca cable or svideo cable to go from pc video out to tv video in.
If you want the sound going through the tv as well, you will need a stereo audio cable with 1/8" phone jack at one end and two rca connectors at the other end.
The audio will go from the sound card out to audio in on the tv
Hope this help. Happy Holiday

I want to connect my pc to a leowe tv for streaming. Want to know what connections and cables i need. It is a normal tv not lcd. Thanks

wired solution: (one of many)
You have to use your s-video out for the video, get a s-video to rca cable (for example this one ). For sound use your audio out (or phone jack) and get another jack to rca converter or cable (for example : )
Buy a rca to scart, plug the yellow (svideo to rca) in the yellow pin, the red and white ones are for audio.


get one of these :
and a svideo to rca (
and to connect this a female to female rca


First off all, buy a decent (they are pricey!!) AV transmitter
they useally come with scart to rca. and buy the above mentioned cable (svideo to rca and jack to rca) and you are ready to go.

Hope this helped.

How to connect acer laptop to philips tv to use tv as monitor

If your TV has a VGA input you can connect the laptop using a standard monitor cable. If the TV has component video inputs, you can get an adapter cable with a VGA plug on one end and the appropriate RCA plugs on the other.

Without these inputs, you can't connect the laptop directly. You will need a converter to switch from the computer's VGA output to a standard video signal to feed to the TV. Here is a website with a sample converter. (I don't know this site. It's just one I picked from a Google search as an example.)

The who input button

usually a tv that doesn't "see" video on the S-video will not even "switch" to it.  It just goes to the next Svideo, RCA etc..  
Make sure your cable is not damaged. (on both ends) Does the svideo source and svideo cable work with another tv or video device?
31GT740 Manual From the Manual:   " WHO•INPUT In TV mode, press WHO•INPUT to toggle through the available Video Input channels (VID/SVID and the current channel). In SAT mode, press to select available channel lists.
Using the WHO•INPUT Button Use the WHO•INPUT button to toggle through the available input sources (VID and the current channel) and view the content from the component you have connected to the TV. 1. Press TV to place the remote in TV mode. Make sure that the content from the component is turned ON. 2. Press WHO•INPUT to tune to the available input source and view the component. 3. Press WHO•INPUT again to tune back to the channel you were previously watching.  "
