My Toshiba P305D S8836 won't connect to my TV

I've connected my PC to the TV using S-Video Cables. The only activity i get is a flicker on the screen when i attempt to make a connection. My buddy uses an older model Toshiba and he connects to TV with no problems. I'm not understanding what's going on with my PC.

    I haven't installed any new video drivers. I did decrease the notebook's screen resolution, and i've adjusted the control panel to connect to external display. I have not seen any recognition in my control panel regarding the type of TV that i've connected the PC to.

    Does your notebook have installed the latest video card drivers?

    Have you tried to decrease notebook's screen resolution to 640x480?

    Does your video card's control panel (or settings software )recognizes attached TV set?

Have you pressed the Fn button and the associated F key to transfer the signal to the S-Video output? If so you may need to configure the display setting for monitor 2 in the display setting in control panel as it will differ from the monitors settings.

Acer aspire 3610 screen flickering


It sounds like your video cable or your Lcd Inverter cables might be loose. You will need to take the lcd apart to get to them. The video cable is on the back of the LCD screen at the top. Remove it, then push it back in and use a piece of tape over where it connects to hold it in place. Also remove the other end of the video cable from it's connection and plug it back in. The lcd inverter is at the bottom under the lcd screen. It has two cables going into it. Remove both cables and then plug them back in. Put everything back together and hopefully your problem of flickering will be solved.

I need to replace the LCD screen on my Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8828. Can you provide step by step guide with photos or a video?


Replacing LCD is not a big deal. Just follow these steps:-

1. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery pack.

2. Locate the rubber screw covers around your laptop screen. There are typically four, but some models may have more.

3. Remove the screw covers. Take care not to lose any. They pop off.

4. Place your fingers between the front bezel (the plastic piece around the LCD screen) and the screen. Gently work your way around the screen to remove the front bezel and expose the screen assembly.

5. Remove the inverter from the screen assembly. It is held on by tape in most models. To disassemble the screen, you will need to either unscrew the screen from its metal holder, or just lift the screen out.

6. Disconnect the wires. One wire goes to the backlight, while the other goes to the video card.

7.Use exact serial no. LCD for exact replacement.

8. Connect the video wire and the backlight wireand affix it using the tape that held the original in place.

9. Put the screen back in place if you need to, and snap the front bezel back on.

10. Screw the front bezel screws back in, and place the screw covers back in place.

Hope they work for you. All the best

Lost bios password on toshiba satellite P305D-S8836


Lost BIOS password?
If you can remember, it will be much better,
If not, try rebooting in safe mode as administrator(hold down F8).
Else you need to put a second disk in another PC and run some password reset utility likeWindows Password Recovery Basic. http://www.windowspasswordrecovery.net/

If all these can't solve the problem, you have to reinstall the PC.

Screen stays black


Get a vga cable and connect it to the side of the laptop, or where you can see the vga connection then send signal to either a monitor/ tv (if they have a vga connection).

by doing this you will be able to find out if its the screen that is faulty or the graphics card.

if you cant see anything else on external screen then its either the graphics card or the laptop motherboard.

if you can view pic, then its the screen, then you can decide if its worth replacing?

Change video output to s vedio connection


If the computer does not easily and automatically show the computer screen on the tv through the S-video output, make sure the tv is switched to S-Video and Hold down the Fn + F5 keys to toggle through the video output manually on the laptop. Just make sure that only one video source is connected at a time. Your laptop will not support two output sources at the same time. Below is the user manual in which it discusses the use of an external device on page 70.

Laptop to tv problem


This is pretty common if using S-video connections and quite often there is little that can be done apart from use high quality cables.

Even that is not always 100%

A better option if you can is to use component cables or DVI to HDMI which is the best way.

Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it. and I suspect that is what you have.
