    When you hook it up do you change the output on your laptop? It should be a F key that changes the screen

Your laptop will have a VGA output or possibly a S-video out. For the VGA you'll need a standard VGA cable. Plug the cable in to your laptop and the PC input of your TV. If your TV does not have PC input it may have a DVI input. IF it does you can use a VGA/DVI adapter to plug it in. If it doesn't have a DVI input you can use the S-Video output on your laptop with a standard S-video cable. After the connection to your TV is made you will have to toggle alternate display by pressing and holding your [Fn] key and pressing F4, or F5, or another F# key. It's the one that looks like a TV screen. Press once to turn on output, press again to turn off your laptop screen, press again to go back to laptop screen only

I want to connect my Sony Vaio VGN-NR120E to my TV Samsung. But I have no idea how to do that. Could you give me advice ...


Hi,
Your Sony vaio does not have any TV-out port to output the display on any analog TV. You can use your VGA (by using VGA cable) port to output your laptop on LCD / Plasma / LED TV (with a VGA port also)). If you still want to project to analog TV via the VGA port, you need to find a VGA to RGB adaptor. But bare in mind, it's hard to find one.
VGA port is like the port on computer monitor. RBG consist of three colored port.
Good luck ;)

My lcd is really bright then all these black blocks coming from the right going to the left no pictures, laptop works with a external ok. What am I looking for?


Hi,

Please restart the computer and press the F2 key to access the BIOS setup. If the issue persist in the BIOS also then the issue is with the LCD screen, in that case service will be required to replace the LCD screen. You may either contact Sony Service Center at:

https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do

Or you may also contact your favorite hardware vendor.

Based on the information, it seems that those are dead pixels and a LCD replacement will required.

The following are the Display part numbers:

A1062138A- Sharp Display Model# LQ170M1LA04
A8119991A - LCD Harness
468257801 - LCD Hinge (L)
468257701 - LCD Hinge (R)
468238001 - LCD Hinge Cover
147862922 - LCD Inverter

Thanks!!!!

My problem is when I connect my laptop Sony Vaio (model: VPCEB18FD) at my TV Sharp AQUOS (Model: LC-42D64U) via HDMI cable (v 2.0), I don't have sound...... Thanks!


On the Vaio:
right click volume on system tray and select playback devices
select hdmi/ sdip as default and then in the properties deselect dolby

If you don't have those options you may need new drivers installed on your Vaio. Do you have windows xp? The driver can be found here: support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/info/info.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&url=Vaio/Original/AR2_Drivers.zip&ip=RAID_AR21.htm

If you have vista the driver can be found here:
support.vaio.sony.ie/downloads/updates/updates.asp?site=voe_en_IE_cons&c=0&s=VGN-AR&m=2418&os=7&osl=1

On the television make sure you are on the right input. Press menu--setup--hdmi setup--audio select--digital

Hope this helps

Not able to connect sony vaio to projector or LCD TV


Hi,
The monitor switch on a Sony is usually done by holding down the Fn key and tapping one of the F keys that has the icon of a monitor on it, sometimes you have to tap that key a couple of time for the switch to activate.
