My samsung q320 will not detect my projector


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

What kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?


Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

ComI have connected my laptop to Sansui 32 inch LCD through VGA cable but the i am not getting the notebook screen displayed on tv continuously. the screen gets displayed for a second and goes off, it is...


You may need to enable the notebook VGA output. They can switch between notebook only, notebook + VGA or VGA only. You usually press the "fn" key and one of the Function keys at the same time. On my laptop, I press "Fn" and "F5". Please note that it can take some seconds for the switching to be completed so press them together once and then wait 10 seconds to see if it does what you want. (remember it may be something other than F5, look for a picture of a monitor or a square symbol).

I have just bought an acer aspire 7720g laptop and i want to connect it to my 50" lg plasma tv, can you help


If your TV has a VGA input, you can use a regular VGA cable from the computer's external VGA connector.

If the set doesn't have a VGA input, you can get an adapter cable (here's one) to go from the computer to the TV's component video input.

You might have to enable the computer's external monitor from the keyboard. One of the function keys usually does this, see your computer manual.

Cannot get video to tv with vga to s-video adapter


try to use the vga output enable function key. it should be one of the "F-keys" (F5, F6...) hold the "Fn" key (generally in blue for the acer aspire 5520 series) and press a key that has a drawing resembling two monitors, but not the one that has a brightness drawing inside on of them, as it will turn off your main screen backlights. in the acer aspire 5520, it is the F5 key. look for a picture of this model's keyboard and you should see a similar key on your netbook as it is a manufacturer standard.

Connecting Dell Inspiron 1501 to TV, Windows Vista


The PC card you have doesnt appear to work with that adaptor. Dell Has its own Svideo / Video output adaptors.

You need a converter not an adaptor. Try looking on Amazon for this: ITV-900 PC to TV Converter

Connecting plasma tv to pc


You need to either connect to the TV the cord that your computer monitor would connect to or have a video card that supports S-Video and the appropriate cables S-Video and RCA audio out cables for either.

Then you must select the appropriate input on your TV, such as VGA or S-Video (and audio in.) .

Let us know how you make out.

for the HD15 connection you need to set your TV to PC mode

 

the only thing I can think that you may be doing wrong is that you need to "ACTIVATE" the external outputs on the laptop,as they are not on by default.

 

To switch video output mode  LCD / CRT (monitor/PC mode) /TV mode plus some dual modes LCD + CRT / LCD + TV

 

I have found that the overlays used for video playback do not work in the dual modes,  (and I have found that CRT monitor mode is best for connecting to a large TV)

 

so switch your TV to PC input,  connect your HD15 cable and SWITCH output mode on your laptop (usually Fn F5) press until you get an output,

 

you will also need to connect audio, so get a phono -> 3.5mm jack plug and plug that in also, and you are ready to rock and roll
