Depending on the brand of laptop, there should be a hotkey (Key combination) that you press to activate a presentation mode.
On my Dell it's Fn (Function) + F8.

Also, you have to have your TV set to the Video or AUX mode that the s-video cable is hooked up to. (Like AUX1/Aux2, or Video1/Video 2) Your best bet is to cycle through them slowly once you activate the presentation mode on your computer, or identify it by the markings near it on the back of the TV.

Sometimes I have to hit the hotkey a few times until my computer and TV 'like' each other.

If this doesn't help, comment on the solution post and we can try more ideas. :)

Hope this helps!

Could you please tell me if my LC-32GA5E tv can work with sky HD.The manual tells about switching to hd mode,but there seems to be no where to connect hd to the set.The tv is about 5 years old. thanks...


This is an HD ready TV and can definitely be used with Sky HD, but ONLY if the Sky box is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. It will not work if connected with a scart cable.

So you need 2 things. Firstly, you need to buy an HDMI cable (see picture) if you haven't already got one. Secondly you need to locate the HDMI sockets on your TV and Sky box. The sockets will have the HDMI logo (see picture) next to them.

Please rate my solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.330cd4e.jpg

I would check the video setting on your laptop. The resolution or refresh rate might have been changed and the LCD TV might not be able to process the signal. Try changing the laptop's resolution to the lowest setting(right-click on desktop and pick properties) and see if the TV produces a picture. Also verify the video output on the laptop is working by hooking it up to a computer monitor if available.

Sharp Aquos LC-32GA3E turning off and on


this is not i a job you should do your self as it could do more damage than good this would be a job for a tv repair person.
QUESTION FOR YOU : are you running the tv straight from the power in the wall or a extension cord.
as an extension cord could definitely cause this problem too.

How to connect my Sharp LC-26DA5U to my computer as a monitor


There are two possible problems: 1. You are connecting a 15-pin (on the laptop) to the 9-pin (on the TV) connection. This isn't the video-in connection for the TV. The TV has a DB-15 connection near its DVI input connector. You should be using a 15-pin to 15-pin cable. The DB-9 connector on the TV is a serial port for servicing the TV. 2. You aren't enabling the external video port for the laptop. Try hitting Fn+F5 on the laptop to cycle between the three display modes: laptop only, laptop + TV, TV only. Make sure to wait a few seconds after hitting Fn+F5 to let the displays sync up.
