If it is a newer LCD or plasma TV it should have a VGA (PC) input on the back that you can use. Just buy a VGA cable and hook it up. If it's an older model, you'll need a video card for your computer that has a S-Video output. Then you can hook it up through the S-video or RCA inputs on your TV.

I am trying to connect a computer to my tv, this model, but when I do I get the sound from the computer but only the screen background from the computer. Not the streaming event.

OK what that sounds like is that the computer is displaying dual screens - is this a notebook computer with its own screen? If so you may see the live action on the other screen and by default the 2nd screen will show the desktop wallpaper. If you want you could drag the windows over to the other screen simply by clicking with your mouse and dragging the content over. If you only want the TV then you need to go into the display settings and change the TV to be your primary monitor.

Right click on your desktop and select screen resolution, then from the display menu choose your TV, then from multiple displays menu choose - show Desktop only on 1 - and your TV should then be the primary display.

Why does the screen shut down after 1 sec while sound continues

It sounds like bad luck to me. You cannot change any settings on a TV by connecting a computer to it. In theory you can damage any monitor by setting the screen resolution of the computer higher than the monitors maximum res. The Sharp 26" has a resolution of 1366 x 768 (1080i) so (again in theory and I have never seen it happen) if you set the output to 1920 x 1024 (HD - 1080p) it can kill the screen. Perhaps this is what has happened. You will need to take it to a Sharp service centre.

Why won't my tv display my computer screen

I suspect that there is a resolution issue. Either the TV can not support the Computer or the Computer is incapable of supporting the TV.

Welcome to Fixya!

In order to watch TV on your Computer you need to install a TV Card into your computer. Contact your favorite computer store, they will show you which one to get.

Basically you install a TV card into your computer and therefore watch TV on your computer screen. If your computer screen is an HD screen then you may want to get an HD TV card for better quality.

Take care!

    Determine what kind of video line-in connection the TV has. These connections are typically on the back or side of the TV. You also will need to determine what kind of video line-out connection the computer has.

    Types of video connections include S-Video, VGA, DVI and HDMI. The Resources section of this article offers links to sites that will help you identify the connection type of your TV and computer.

  • 2

    Purchase a video connection cable that is for the type of connection that the computer and TV share. For example, if the TV and computer both have S-Video ports, you should purchase an S-Video cable. S-Video connections are the most common and least expensive option.

  • 3

    Connect the end of the S-Video cable that matches the connection on the computer to the computer video line-out port. Connect the other end to the video line-in port of the same kind on the TV.

  • 4

    Convert video from VGA video to S-Video or even component video. Do this if the two connection ports on the computer and TV are not compatible. You will need to purchase a scan converter box, a VGA video cable, and either an S-Video or component video cable. Connect the cable that will connect to the computer jack to the computer and the converter box, and connect the S-Video or component video cable to the TV and the converter box.

    Turn on the TV and use the remote control to select "Input." Some TVs will have multiple selections. Turn on the computer and play a movie or display an image on the screen. As you are scrolling through the "Input" options on the television, you will see a matching image of what you opened on your computer on the TV screen when the correct input is selected.

  • 6

    Adjust the screen resolution on the computer if the image on the TV is distorted, too small or too large. Do this by going into Control Panel and Display Settings on the computer. Select a different screen resolution until the image on the TV fits the TV screen

    How do I get my PC video signal to my TV. I s there a way with a wireless router and how will that be connected to my TV. Thank you.

    Hi, you can use basic video cables to get your TV to act as a monitor. It depends on which ports your computer and TV have. You can use an S-video cable, a serial cable (with the blue connector that many monitors use), an HDMI cable, or a DVI cable. If both your computer and your TV both have any of these same ports, all you need is the cable and you can have your TV receive video signals from your computer.

    Hope that helps!
