Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.

I want to hook up my PC to my TV and can't get it to work. I've tried using the s-video cord and the yellow, red, and white ports. When I try this with my older note book it worked with the s-video cord. Is there something I need to change or input to make this transfer? I have a Gateway desktop with Vista Home Premium with the media center and a 50" Hitachi. I want to try using Hulu ect.

Okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

Your problem is in the TV. I'm not familiar with your TV, but you should look for an option to turn it to normal or to try and scan for channels with xbox plugged in and running. I'm pretty sure that if you get HDMI cable, your problem should be solved.

I cannot seem to get my vcr to play and I 've hooked up all the proper cables to the tv including what is required on the direct tv receiver


It may not be on the right channel. If you hooked in up by RCA cables (the red, yellow, & white colors) then you will have to change the TV to the correct input. Look next to where you plugged the cables in and it should say input? where the "?" is replaced with a number. Either use a button on the TV or your remote that says "TV/Video" or "input" to change to that input. If it is the old single black cord (which I doubt) then it will be either channel 3 or 4.

Good luck

How do I hook my tv up to my acer netbook? I dont have a tv port but do have a port for a second moniter and have the cord to hook it up but it will not work...


If the TV doesn't have a VGA input, you have two options. If the TV has component video inputs (3 RCA jacks color-coded red, green and blue, not just a single video jack coded yellow), you can use a simple adapter cable. Here is an example.

If your TV only has a single yellow video input jack (called composite video) you can't use the simple cable. But you can get a VGA to video converter. This device takes the VGA signals and converts them to the form the TV can use.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

I tried to hook up my dvd player and i get picture but no sound. when i put the cords in the back of the monitor there is yellow red blue green holes no white spot. Do i need different cords. I have tried...


That could be a result to that TV either not having the ports you need, or you may need different cords. On my TV. With the 360 they have two cords. Red,white, and yellow and also green blue and i think red but im not 100% sure. You may need to find a different port on your TV for your cords, or do what I do and have your VCR hooked up to your tv, and your DvD player hooked up thorugh your VCR. Hope this helps and don't forget to rate ^^
(and yes that yellow and white are a necessity)

DVD plays only in black and white


Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

TV does not recognize PS2 input


On the TV you should have a video, input or mode button. If you press that button while the PS2 is on it should pickup the signal. You need to be in video mode instead of cable mode since you are using the red, yellow, white cables. Many TVs have a few video modes so press it wait a few seconds and try again if it does not work. Hope this helps:)
