How do I get to S-Video?

I just bought an S-Video cord to adapt my laptop computer to the TV because the TV has an S-Video jack along with the audio/video. I can not get the S-Video to open on the TV, even though I can get to the regular Video screen for my DVD player. How do i get the S-Video to come up? Sanyo Model # DS27880

Re: How do I get to S-Video?

Go to your graphic card settings located in the display properties menu, click "properties". You'll be able to see the settings of your laptop's graphic card. Choose "advanced",then select your "TV" as a target screen. Your S-Video cable has to be plugged in to your laptop when you are searching for the Laptop Display/TV selector I mentioned above. Also where this selector is located depends on what graphic card you have.

How do I hook my sylvania model number 6432GG TV to my ASUS laptop model #D550MAVD801?

The only inputs tho the TV are cable in and AUDIO / VIDEO in.
You can use 'stereo patch cords', to plug into the tv. Check with your local computer store to see if you can find adapters to plug into the computer and change to RCA jacks.
All of that means, you probably can't.

I want to connect my computer to sony wega triniton kvxr29m80 from the hdmi or vga port to the tv's component or 3rc ports. is it possible..i have tried the hdmi to component cable and it does not...

An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.

You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: . (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).

I hope this helps.

(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

Ok so 1 of my kidos has the RCA 20F420T tv, and i guess there is no headphone jack hole, so i went and bought adapter that plugs into the av jacks, still doesnt work can you please help!!!

Without knowing the specifics on this adapter - I can provide only provide some clues as to how this works.

Basically, the A/V jacks on a TV has a "fixed" audio output level - this means that the sound levels on the A/V jacks is NOT controlled by the volume control of the TV itself. You should be able to set the TV volume to minimum and then use the adapter's volume control to make the earphone / headphone sound louder and softer. Your TV however, may have a setting in the menu that can change the audio from "fixed" to "variable". If set to "variable", when turning the volume down for the TV's built in speakers will also turn the volume down on the A/V jacks as well. You do not want this to work like that as the sound in the headphones and the TV speakers will be same - instead of the TV speakers being off and the headphones on.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

S-Video Connection between Laptop and TV only blurry when laptop plugged in

You may have a combination problem of a bad shield in your S-Video cable and a floating ground on your laptop that doesn't interfere when operating from batteries.

I would first replace the cable and if the problem is still present, you may need a new adaptor for your laptop.
The bars/lines you describe come from a slight difference in the synchronization of the TV signal and 60 cycle AC being in the wrong place. That small difference in frequency is causing your video to be modulated.
Before modern stuff, this used to only case 'hum' in the audio.
