Lenovo laptop will not connect to a BUSH LCD TV with HDMI cable

Hi there, I have a new Lenovo G580 laptop. I have tried several times to connect it to my 40" BUSH LCD40FHDA8 TV without joy. The laptop and TV both have HDMI inputs but yet nothing when connected. I tried it upstairs on my 32" Acoustic Solutions TV and it came on straight away. I have even tried the HDMI cable that is used for my XBOX but the TV still does not pick up the laptop! Can anyone help me out?? Ian

My friend, the easiest and by far the best way I have seen is to set the advance timings on your laptop just right and use a vga to scart cable.

Restart your Laptop to recognize again your TV on the system.

SOURCE: i have lenovo ideapad y510

Hi er_gauravpra,

I see you want to use an HDMI connection for your Video from your Lenovo Y510.

I have checked information about the Y510 and it does not have the Technology of HDMI on the Y510 system of Lenovo, Y510 system only have the VGA port where in you can use a VGA cable to get video output to an External Monitor.

Regarding the issue about HDMI I have not seen any Converters yet that can be bought from anywhere to convert VGA to HDMI and I believe that will not be possible since VGA is a lower type of video output than what an HDMI can.

I do apologize but the Y510 systems does not have the HDMI technology to on it.

I hope this clarifies everything about your Query.

Have a nice day

SOURCE: to connect with lcd with hdmi

Looks like your laptop has a HDMI port. Simply connect to LCD (HDMI if supported) port and make sure LCD is set to correct input (HDMI). It should be plug and play, but try connecting and then powering laptop, then LCD, then choosing input port on LCD.

How do i remove or reset the bios password on a Lenovo G580 laptop?


First of all, you need the present password. Then straight after turning the computer on you press F12 or insert multiple times after each other. That way you will stop the normal boot and enter the BIOS settings. There you most likely will be prompted for the password and then under security you can disable or change it.

I am not getting any option or indication when i am connecting HDMI port to work as tv


There are a couple of possibilities. First check to make sure the correct input on the TV is selected using the "Source" or "Input" button on the TV's remote. If you can confirm that the port is working with another device, check your cable to make sure it doesn't have "TV" printed on one plug end. These cables must be installed with the correct end connected to the TV, or they will not transmit your signal. (common with slim cables).

Let me know if that helped!

I wanna connect my laptop(lenovo G450) to samsung series 4 lcd through hdmi cable


Hello,

A HDMI cable can output both audio and video, whilst some computer with Windows XP cannot automatically switch to HD Audio output as Windows 7 can. Thus manual setup can solve the problem.

After connecting the HDMI cable, Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices", double-click "Sounds and Audio Devices. Select "Audio" tab on "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" window.

On "Sound playback", change "Default device" from "Conexant HD Audio output" to "NVDIA High Definition Audio".

Your television should have several HDMI ports, select the appropriate HDMI port number and check if TV is not muted.


Hope this helps.

How to connect dish tv to my laptop? It has inbuilt tv tuner.


Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV separately.

Things You'll Need

HDMI cable

USB-to-HDMI adapter

OR

S-video cable

Audio cables

HDMI Connection

Turn on your Lenovo laptop and HDMI-enabled TV.

Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has these ports. If you have a ThinkPad or other Lenovo model, connect a USB-to-HDMI adapter to your HDMI cable, then plug the USB end of the adapter into any USB port.

Press the "FN" and "F7" keys on your keyboard. This will switch the laptop's display to the TV. You can then use your TV screen as a monitor or use the laptop's DVD drive to watch movies on your TV.

S-Video Connection

Turn off your laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV on the other.

Plug audio cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of the audio cables into your TV.

Turn on the laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop screen, then select "Properties."

Click the "Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option, depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option in any version.

Click on the option that suits your system, such as "TV" or "LCD." Click "Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click "OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to the external screen.

Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

I conect my lenovo laptop Y 410 with Panasonic THP42C10 D for Vidio There are no sound in TV


Hi dr_piyushpat,

I see that you conencted your Lenovo Y410 to a Panasonic THP42c10 LCD TV, see details below.

*The Audio will dpened on what cable connection you have from the Laptop to the LCD TV,
*You have Y410 I do not think that HDMI will be an option.
*I believe that you are using the VGA port on the Machine for an extended Video.
*The Audio will really not be coming out of the Panasonic TV if you are using a VGA cable since that is only for Video you will need an audio cable Jack that will relay audio from the Laptops Audio Jack to the Audio Jack of your Panasonic TV thsi is the only way you can get audio out from the Laptop since you are conencted using a VGA cable.

* do not think that HDMI is present on your Lenovo Y410, but if ever you may have that connection/port the way to get Audio from an HDMI conenction is to change the audio PLayback properties and selct HDMI as the default device for the Audio to work using HDMI.

I hope that this helps.

have a nice day,

How do i connect my 360 to run on HDTV to a bush lcd tv?


HD is a new sort of signal transmitting/receiving technology; therefore, all software and hardware components you have to use must be able to support the relevant technology. (HDMI=High Definition Multimedia Interface)I am not sure if your 360 has an HDMI output, but if it has one, you have to use one of those HDMI cables. As well, the LCD model you mentioned has to be able to support HDMI signals. As I know, scart plugs don't usually support HDMI. Similarly, individual connector cables don't support it either. All you need to have is a digital coax cable.
