Monitor showing no signal and button not working


The monitor needs a signal ( source), i.e., DVD, TV, to show a picture. If your monitor shows no signal then either the source is not connected or not functioning. Check the connections from the monitor to the source. Also, check that the source is functioning properly and is receiving power.

How do i connect my toshiba tecra s1 laptop to my tv.


First you will need a double female ended VGA cable, plug into the blue triangular socket on the lap top and to the same socket on the back of the tv, as long as the tv has a VGA socket you will be ok.
Make sure that the signal source on the tv is set to pc, on the pc right click on the screen to enter the display properties, goto the settings tab, in the settings window at the bottem you will see a slider for the resolution, change the resolution to 800 by 600, on the right you will see the bit setting change this setting to 16bit or 24bit and click apply click ok to keep this setting, restart the laptop, as long as everything is connected correctly when the laptop boots you should see the windows screen on the tv. good luck and i hope this helps.

I have a toshiba satellite m55-s135 and i just bought the cord to hook it up to my LG tv, but when i push input to pc, there is no signal, i have tried fn and f5, but nothing happens. What do i need to do?


Hi, since you connected a "Output Device" a [TV] to your Computer, its become another Monitor; so the Computer is trying to identify another Monitor being connected. This is what you need to do; (right click) on a [empty] area of the Desktop Screen, in the "shortcut" window, select the "Personalize," in the next window which should be the [Personalize and appearance...], select the "Display" applet, and open to the Display Setting window. Now since your "Primary Monitor is the Laptop, the "Secondary Monitor" will be the TV [ Monitor 2], click on the Identify Monitors. Next, once the Computer recognize the TV, click on the "Apply and OK buttons. Note: You may be required to "Restart the Computer for the effect to take properly." If all goes well; give the solution a "Helpful Rating," thanks.

Connecting my laptop to DVD recorder and recording onto the recor


You FIRST need a way to get the Signal, INTO the laptop, you need to get a USB to TV/Video Dongle, Now using this and the software that came with it, as well as other software, You Hook up the OUTPUT from the DVD Player, to the Video Input on the USB Dongle, Either, Component (Best) or Composite, (OK) Video, and AV Audio, and set to "Record" on the PC, and "Play" the DVD and then the PC will "Record" the incoming signal from, the DVD player, to the HDD in the PC. Once digitised, and saved it can be manipulated, any way you want.
Now if you want to do the REVERSE IE: Take a signal FROM the PC, to the DVD, then you simply setup the DVD as a Second monitor, use a TV to set it all up, once it is all working on the Laptop and TV, simply swing the Output, away from the TV's Input, to the DVD's Input,and select record, the PC, will then output whatever, to the screen, and whatever is displayed on-screen, will be recorded by the DVD's hard drive.
You First though must setup the PC to have multiple monitors, it is best to get the most up to date drivers and install them in the PC. FIRST. Go to this MS link below it shows you how to set u,setup as CLONE mode, I think will be best, also don't set initial resolution too high to start, set it to say 800x600 32 bit, to start, and work up, until your TV complains and stop. As related once setup, swing the PC's output to the DVD, and record.

Trying to connect my toshiba satellite a205-s5804 laptop to my sony bravia lcd 1080 t.v. I have connected VGA from laptop to t.v.VGA pc in on t.v..Also headphone out to sound in on t.v.. T.V. not excepting...


Please double check that your VGA cable is working properly and you have installed the most updated version of video drivers.
Is the TV not even playing the sound? Are you on the right channel? Only try checking the sound on a AV channel by using a headphone jack to AV jack cable.
If you have a S-Video port try connecting with it you can get that cable for a buck in a dollar store.
Hope this helps.

Toshiba laptop Dual display issue


To switch between screens try pressing the FN key and F5. You should not have to restart you computer. As for the TV error "invalad signal" you might have to change the screen resolution on you computer. You might have to try a few different resolution before you find one your tv accepts.
1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

I am trying to connect my laptop to the Polaroid LCD TV, as i would like to use the TV monitor as a computer monitor (my laptop monitor is broken). So I connect the correct wire to correct places, however...


The simple patch that I found (same problem) was to start by using any old monitor that I could borrow to set up my Dell Laptop.
After getting the Laptop booted on a regular monitor I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties then to the settings tab.
Here I found the dual monitor settings (#2 will usually be dis-abled by default.)
Click on #2 monitor and set the resolution to the lowest number (800 x 600 works well)
Then I clicked on "make this monitor my primary monitor"
As soon as I clicked apply the PC Windows screen appeared on the Polaroid TV screen

Earlier I had set the secondary monitor as "extend this screen to this monitor"
This also worked but I had to "drag the current screen to the right all the way off the
"borrowed monitor" until it appeared on the TV screen. The mouse pointer will be there also.
At first it took a little getting used to but in a few minutes I was up and running.
Hope this helps your situation
