Cant connect my laptop to my LG32LC45 tv

Hi there
Below is a link which takes you to a page that shows how to cable the PC (laptop) and the TV together, with a brief explanation of resolutions etc.
If the above doesn't get you any further then the link below takes you to an LG support page from which you can download the full manual for your TV, which gives the supported connection methods and the supported resolutions.
I would strongly suspect that if correctly cabled then either the laptop external resolution is set to a level that the TV can't cope with, or the external monitor function is turned off. If the external monitor function is turned off then pressing and holding the Fn button whilst pressing a function button once and releasing both should turn the external monitor on. On a Toshiba Tecra the top line functon button you need is F5, on an MSI U130 its F3, on a Dell Inspiron 1525 its F8, on a different Dell model its F1, so you need to check your laptop and its manual to find out which button is relevant to your machine.
Sorry to have been longwinded - Good luck

How can i connect my macbook pro to my LG 50PJ350 to play movies?

I would try an s-video connection from computer to tv, it just might bypass all that copy right stuff that may be giving you problems

No picture, lines displaying

The only board that conttrols the HDMI function on this TV is the main board. The lines on the screen can be caused by this board as well or a bad t-con board .

Here is a link for both boards : Main-

T-con -

double check your part numbers.

I have a packard bell netbook and i just purchased a VGA to S-video cable. i want to connect my netbook to my tv. i have managed to do this on my old dell laptop via a s-video cable just fine but i cant...

you should have a little blue fn button near your shift key and if you hold the and one of your function keys (usualy F5) with a picture that kind of looks like a tv screen shape it should switch between display options

Want to connect Laptop to LG LCD TV. Can not get picture on TV Screen only sound. What 'F' key needs to be used to activate VGA output ?

The "F" key you need is different depending on the laptop you have. Some have a plain box with a vertical line either side of it, others have a box with "LCD" in it then a / and another, plain, box with an arrow coming out of it. Any other designs for the F key logo will be varients of these two.
Remember to hold the function key when pressing the screen key, the monitor on the laptop will usually go blank (depending on the model) then the tv will start a few seconds later.
You may need to change desktop resolution to make the picture the correct size on your TV.
Good luck!

Cannot succefully connect my hp compaq nc6000 to tv

Hold the fn key and look for something that looks like this ‘I[]I’ on your keyboard with the TV connected. The key is usually on the numbers across the top.

You just take the VGA cable that are work in the monitor and connect it between the laptop and LCD.
If the LCD have a DVI output then you need to take VGA to DVI cable.
After the connection press Function(Fn)+F7 to start connecting.....
