Tv hooked up to computer. connected audio cabe to vga audio in. still no sound. help.

I'll need a bit more information on your issue to help you first:
1.) You said: "trying to get sound on the tv to the computer". -- Did you perhaps mean that you're trying to get the audio which comes out of your computer to "play" on your TV?

2.) If I assume correctly, then you have the audio cable connected to the wrong place on the computer.. and possibly on the wrong place on the TV. If you are indeed trying to get the audio from your computer to play through the speakers on your TV, then you need to:

(this is also assuming you're using a "headphone jack-sized" plug on one end, with the other end being the old-style "RCA" left and right channels.. [Left = white; Red = right])

Firstly, the 'headphone jack"-style end of the audio cable needs to be plugged into the "audio out" or "headphones" jack. Sometimes the audio jacks on a computer are color-coded. If this is the case, the green jack is the one you want.

Next, the other end (which again I'm assuming are the left / right channels -- [white / red plugs]) needs to be plugged into the "audio in" on the TV which matches with the same input as your VGA cable is plugged into. Once the cable is hooked up in this way, you should be able to hear all audio coming from your computer on your TV's speakers.

Please let me know if I'm assuming incorrectly on what you're trying to accomplish with the audio. -- I hope I was helpful! Please let me know if you have any other questions!

The mac is detecting the TV has a second display. You have two options - you can drag whatever you are watching from your laptop screen to the tv using the mouse. The second option is to go to system preferences, then displays, then click detect displays and select which display you want to be the main display.

I wanna rewirwe my web cam to hook up straight to my tv its a old logitec sonix SN9C101, 032EAA1 i need the wire diagram

Can't be done I'm afraid.

You will need to run the webcam into a computer first in order to provide the power and driver software for you webcam.

If your TV has a VGA connection or even an S-Video connection, you can always run the video output of the computer's video card to the TV and see the video output that way.

There is just no way to plug your standard webcam directly into a TV, you will always need the computer in between.

Polaroid TLA-04011c I was using my Polaroid TV as my desktops screen to watch a movie with friends. I always have had a problem with this when hooked up through the VGA input. Normally if the computer...

The first basic thing is the computer has no way to know the video status of the TV set. When driving a TV with a computer it is best to turn off all the power saving features and screen saver, or increase them to beyond the time limit you would require. This would prevent a shutdown.

As for the second part, it sounds like you had a bad static electricity spark. When connecting things together, caution must be taken for this type of thing. This static discharge must have done some damage to the input circuits on the TV set. I could also do damage to any of the other devices connected. It is also possible with a sever static electricity discharge the damage could go deeper than just the input circuits.

You should take the TV set in to the authorized service rep for an estimate. Unfortunately it may not be low in cost to service.

If the set is under warranty, don't tell the service rep about the static electricity discharge. Just tell them that the set is not functioning.

You will need a TV Tuner expansion card for your computer. If you buy a TV Tuner expansion card and install it, and connect an antenna or cable TV cable, you will be able to watch TV shows on your computer monitor while using your computer. With some TV tuner cards, you can also record TV for watching it later, or even hook up your VCR and record VHS tapes and home videos to put on DVD. This is a more complicated topic and instructions should come with the TV Tuner expansion card you purchase.

TV tuner cards usually run in the range of $20-75 and will fit in most computers. You can buy them online and at computer or electronics stores. Installation is fairly simple and the instructions and software are included (unless you buy a used one)

Good luck!
