Question about Samsung LE32R74BDX 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Using my Samsung LCD TV as monitor for my Sony Vaio Laptop

I thought connecting a VGA 15 pin PC cable to the VGA PC in cable port of my Samsung 32" LCD TV- LE32R74 BD C  would help to easily transfer my image from my Sony Vaio laptop to the  LCD TV...well it doesnt recognise  a PC source at all???...( my medical background is neither helping me much here!!)..
I wanted to stream some online movies & watch them on my big LCD TV screen...but alas its not as dead easy as it sounds!
Incidentally I found that my TV has a HDMI/DVI port.
So would just one such cable called..NEW HDMI HDTV to VGA HD15 Y/Pb/Pr 3 RCA Adapter Cable..
..help at all to transfer the image from my laptop to my LCD? ..
Some kind guidance is much appreciated.
Cheers
Arijit

    Cheers mate..
    Hope this works...
    just out of curiosity was wondering...whats the slot at the bottom panel of my Sony Vaio laptop? is it a video card slot? has it got anything to do with the Samsung LCD TV connections?

    about the slot at the bottom of your SONY VAIO is for expansion of external hardware. you just connect the adapter to blue VGA 15 pin out your Sony.
    about the resolution is nothing to worry about it because 1080p is good enough to see the picture or movie from your sony. about 1360 times 768 pixels is about max setting desktop from your sony that can accept by your Lcd tv. but this setting depend to the size of your internal vga sony vaio.....but basicly there no problem at all..enjoy the show....

My samsung smart tv hdmi ports do not work anymore


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.


If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

How could I connect a Daewoo 42sm TV?, I can't afford cable so I use a converter box(analog to digital w/rabbit antenna)on my other TV and I was given this Daewoo TV and would like to watch it;please


If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types

I have a toshiba LED TV Model 40PB200, i bought it two months now. Recently, the audio in port started producing a sound as if microphone is on and the VGA for computer flickers when i connect a laptop on...


One thing is that unless it is usb you should always have the devices powered DOWN before connecting them via" wire electric data cables". it only takes 3 static volts of electricity to damage a circuit board. when you zap you buddy when you wear sox its 20 to 30,000 volts of static electricity so 3 volts would not be known let alone felt or seen. Power down and you will be well not you .
