    tried numerous times lowering and also raising volumes on pc and tv to no avail

  • master_angle Dec 27, 2008

    thanks for the comments.The tv model is a HL67A750A1F.I tried using the 2 rc"S to the 1 3.5 audio in pc[there is a connection on tv side panel that reads dvi audio] with no luck.According to the manual you need to use the hdmi/dvi hooh up also.Like posted before the only way i can configuire this is if i purchase a dvi to a vga adapator since i don't have a dvi hook up on lap top.

  • master_angle Dec 28, 2008

    i will be going to the city Monday ,will buy the vga to dvi connector,will let you guys know if this works tomorrow nite.

  • master_angle Dec 30, 2008

    Well i think that i just give up. Took the 1.5 hour trip to the city,went to pc store and bought the vga to dvi adaptor.Hooked the hdmi/dvi end into the right port of the tv.Hooked the dvi to vga adaptor into laptop and with this setup i have no picture and no sound.Checked all connections seems good.The hdmi cord came with the high def receiver that i bought from Bell.The screen says searching for signal and then says no signal found.I used the right input on tv hdmi/dvi.At least when i used the vga to vga [to tv] i had a picture and no sound.I have one last idea,can i hook up the audio to my sterio inputs {aux input] and get the sound that way and watch the picture through my vga to vga hookup.Gary

  • master_angle Dec 30, 2008

    just wondering if more help out there

  • master_angle Jan 01, 2009

    Well i guess i solved this one on my own.Went to PC store and bought a multilplier,where i can plug in more rc cables to my stereo receiver[it was full and had no more room for inputs].Now i have beautiful pictures using the vga to vga cable and great sound from my laptop 3.5 mm to double rcs.So what did i learn 1. the pc audio inputs [both of them dvi] don't work on my tv.2.If your pc doesn't have a hdmi output, buying the vga to dvi adaptor also doesn't work,couldn't get a picture.Again the 2 figurerations shown in the samsung manual to get audio out of your pc are bogus for my unit.

You would need to use 2 rc's to a 3.5 audio for sound and purchase a 15 pin vga to dvi connector and hook into the hdmi/dvi connection on tv,

The vga cable will only allow you to connect the pc screen to your samsung not to the audio in order to get the audio you try using your HDMI connection which will transfer sounds as well as video.

The vga cable will allow you to connect the pc screen to your samsung..not the audio..in order to get the audio you can use your HDMI connection which will transfver sounds and pictures...You hould use the other configuration in manual,the 2 rc's to a 3.5 audio and purchase a 15 pin vga to dvi connector and hook into the hdmi/dvi connection on tv.

Hope that helps

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, no problem with the video that you mentioned hence the VGA connection should do. On the audio side, try using 2 RCAs to 3.5 instead of the 3.5 to 3.5. Depending on the model of the Samsung DLP, the audio is normally synchronized to the video source selection. Perhaps it would be to your advantage to postback the exact model number of the Samsung to determine the video/audio pairing.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    I guess you are right since the option(s) are rather limited to what is available as Video out on the laptop.

    Cheers.

    and I was about to suggest split the audio and video. Hook the video whichever way the Samsung HL67A750A1F will perform best and the audio to a home theater system.

    Hey, its not a workaround, it might prove to be better.

Lower the volume bar in laptop, near to minimum then increase volume of TV.
If still no joy, unplug tv for couple of minutes, replug and power it again.

    OK, unplug audio wire from laptop and touch it, do you hear any hummmm or static noise from TV speakers?

    Please increase TV volume up to 50-60% for this check.
    Thanks

    Issue is no sound,
    VGA to DVI connector is unnecessary, in my opinion because "Picture is great" and HDMI to DVI will give video only in TV.

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Dec 30, 2008

    If your TV has another HDMI input, try it and put audio in related input in TV.

Can't figure out how to connect pc to video component to my Acer laptop


You shouldn't be using video component cables, instead you should be using a VGA cable and a 1/8". stereo audio cable. Your laptop and your TV should have a VGA port; it is D-shaped and has 15 pins over 3 rows. Next to your TV's VGA port should be an audio jack that you can hook up to your laptop's headphone jack. The cables be be bought at Radio Shack or any decent electronics/computer store.

How do I connect a PC to a LG50PG20 50" HDTV Plama?


You need a VGA cable (15 pin) connected from PC (monitor out) to the PC input on the HDTV (15 pin) this is for the video. For the audio, connect from PC to HDTV, audio cable, either 3.5mm from earphone out on PC to HDTV 3.5mm audio input (next to PC VGA input) and also be sure to set PC screen resolution to compatible output for HDTV like 1024 X 768 or 600 x 800 etc.

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)

HOW TO CONNECT SAMSUNG LCD TV TO ACER ASPIRE


Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:

If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
  1. Make sure your TV and computer are off.
  2. Using a 15 pin D-sub (standard) video cable, connect the Video Out jack on your computer's video card to the PC In jack on the back of your TV.
  3. Using an audio cable with a min-stereo plug on one end and two RCA jacks on the other, connect the Audio Out jack on your computer to the left and right PC Audio In jacks on your TV. (Note: If you have your computer connected to separate speakers, you can skip this step)
  4. Switch on the Notebook and Adjust the Resolution (800 x 600 pixels would do). You can go to Control Panel and Adjust the screen resolution. (Keep ‘Screen Refresh rate’ at 60hz in the Monitor Settings)
  5. Switch on the TV and try to Select the Source as 'PC' (you can do this by either pressing the 'Source' button several times on your TV remote or go to the Menu - Setup and Select the 'PC' as source there).
  6. In most cases, after following the above steps, the TV would start to show 'Auto Adjusting' message and it will start showing your Desk top on the TV. But incase it doesn't work, you can do the following:
a. Mostly the problem lies with the VGA cable. Make sure you have the right one (15 pin) and its securely attached at both ends. If you are not using the right VGA Cable, it means that there is no connection between your TV and Notebook. Your TV will show 'PC' in Grey in the Source Input list (Go to ‘Menu’ from the TV remote).
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.

Samsung LCD TV not receiving PC signal


Check your vga cable. Some cables have only 14 pins, some have all 15. The missing pin is pin 9, in the 15 pin cable it carries 5v from the graphics card to the screen. Without that 5v signal most LCD and Plasma television screens won't recognise a PC input. I had the same problem and only managed to fix it when my girlfriend swapped a cable over for me and as she did so glanced inside and said "it's got a bit missing" The cable that came with your PC most likely only has 14 ins as that is all a monitor screen needs.
You can buy a 15 pin cable at most PC or electronic shops, just check that isdoes have all 15 pins befiore you buy it. The cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones unless you are buying 20 foot cable. For 6 foot cable the cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones.
