Connecting Vostro 1400 to Sony Bravia BR6?

I've tried connecting an RGB cable to both (other option seems to be an s-video connection from Dell - 7 pin to 4 pin). The tv does not recognize the connection. The computer does not display on the tv. The tv gives a message that there is no connection I select the pc symbol on the tv menu and choose the cable connection. I have tried rebooting the computer to no avail. What am I doing wrong? What do I need to do? My computer is using an NVIDIA GeForce 8400M card. It's set for 1280x800 with a 60 HZ refresh rate. Will this match the 1280X768 listed for the tv? I want to be able to show photos (which tv says it can do and I can do from flash drive but it's slow) and to see how it looks as a secondary monitor - mostly photos are important right now. Thanks.

To properly drive your TV set, your computer will have to be able to supply 1366 x 768 with a 60 Hz refresh rate.

A resolution of 1280 X 800 is high. LCD and Plasma sets are very critical for the maximum resolution. You can go lower but not higher. If a lower than native resolution is used there may be some aspect ratio distortion, and the picture quality will be degraded.

There is a spec list at the link below:

How do I connect my dell inspiron 1520 to my sony bravia tv


Connect a VGA cable from the video port on your computer to the video port on the Sony Bravia.
Boot up the Dell Inspirion and hold down the Fn key and press the function key that has the monitor symbol to divert the video data to the laptop video port.
Power up the Bravia and Input button on the remote and select the PC input.
You may need to set the laptop video resolution to 1024 x 768 (a higher video resolution may not display on the Bravia).

Where to connect my pen drive in my sony bravia lcd klv32s400a?


Hi Radhika,

Your TV has USB port on back side. Just plug your pendrive there. Then go menu on TV ( use your remote commander) and go to this input. Your TV will read the file on pendrive accordingly.

Hooking up my Sony HD Tv


Couple of items come to mind.
In the menu of the receiver, is there a way to choose video and RGB?
Set the receiver to SAT
Connect the HD Cable Box to SAT
Check the TV is on Monitor RGB.
Check the input being used by the monitor RGB cables is selected on the TV.
Have a picture? NO, receiver has issues.
Yes? Do this with each input to confirm they work.
You can reset the whole receiver to factory by holding the tone button down and holding the standby button for three seconds. (This clears your speaker setups, too.)

Check the connections between the cable box and the TV. If you are using scart check the connector is in squarely if using rgb or composite you need a separate audio connection using the red and white phon sockets.

No signal sony bravia to dell laptop


Most laptops have a combination of buttons you have to press on the keyboard to get it to output on the monitor output. Try pressing the FUNCTION KEY or FUNC/FN key usually found in the bottom left hand side of the keyboard. Keep that button held down while press one of the number keys. Usually the number key will have a picture of a TV screen on it. Might be number 8 or 9. Press both keys at the same time a you can switch between laptop screen, Sony LCD or you can have both..

Connecting old DVD player to LCD


Just respect the colors. Green output from the dvd to green input tv, Red output from the dvd to red input tv and the same with blue. All 3 cables (green , red, blue) are for the picture, so you got to plug another 2 for the sound.
