    Nothing to thank me for, i wish i could solve your problem, but i couldent. Its sad that you need to use that poor S-video connector, the differens betwin a S-video and the VGA is like night and day.
    Well, i dont give up, i will search for answers for you, and if i find any i will reply them here for you.

    Hi again!



    I just spoket to a friend of mine who works at Epson here in sweden, he told me that (as i sayed before) its a setting known problem. You will gett a green picture from a dvd-player if you dont manually change the incoming signal to component.



    Do you use a splitter to connect both your pc and dvd to the projector or do you move the cable betwin them?

    On the projector, you have 2 vga ports, witch one did you connect the cable on? the one to the right or the one to the left ?

    Hmm...

    Strange, its almost always the sittings with problems like this.

    Check the connectors on the cable and make sure that they are full pin connectors

    Its just a setting issue, you need to set the projector, it dosent automatic recognize where the sourse is and where the signal comes from. Even if the signal passes thrue the same cable there is differens from a dvd and a pc. Every time you change the signal source you need to change the settind on the projector. You have to find the right settings, thats all you need to do for making it work.

I think, the issue might be because of lenght of the composite cable. Not all projectors can "recognize the signal" on too long composite cables, try a "standard size" cable used on monitors, it is i THINK 1,8 feet long...? Dunno. Try two short cables and see if you get "green" - if not, then your cable is too long and gives the signal to much "resistance", so your projector can "read" only one of the color channels, in your case green. If your projector setup requires long cables (and it usually does ;) ), you will have to stick to Cinch connectors and analog video signal, which I have tested on 35m long cable without any visible quality loss. Hope this helps. ;)

Your TV doesn't have video output on either HDMI or Composite video. (There are a few TVs that do have a video out but often that is only available for some input/output combinations. You would need to check the manual but the PC input is usually not available for the video output.)

You could get a VGA to composite or component video converter and direct the signal to your new TV from your PC. One example of the first converter is here: http://www.cablestogo.com/product/29548 . An example of the VGA to component video is here: https://sewelldirect.com/audio-authority-vga-to-component-pc-to-hdtv-converter.asp . There are other models available. A few VGA to HDMI converters also exist. However, since those need to convert an analog output to digital, they are more expensive.

I hope this helps.

(A few VGA to composite cables exist. They will not work for your purpose. They are designed to connect projectors with RCA ports and understand the VGA RGB signal to a computer.)

How to connect laptop to vga projector?


you need a cable. it may be the one that usually connects a computer to a monitor = depending what the input is on the projector but it sounds like an ordinary monitor cable as projector is VGA ( the other type has a digital input at one end ;but Im pretty sure thats not it.) If you have another computer set up just borrow the monitor cable and try it. There's already an input for one end in your laptop if its ok buy an extra cable

Hi how can i connect from my pc's s-video socket to a projector which has a jack socket? I have all the right cables I've been told to press fn f4 but my pc doesn't have fn


If it's a laptop, they've usually got a vga connector on the rear panel which you can use to connect to an external monitor...or a projector if it's got the same (vga) connector. If your projector only has a jack socket, then that's not a standard connector for a video input and maybe you should consult your projector's user guide for clarification of the connectors (are you sure your jack socket isn't actually a phono or RCA socket? if it is, then your laptop video output signal probably isn't compatible with the projector as there's no way to make s-video output feed anything other than a s-video input (different signal levels and standards) Regards, nicam49

Hi my laptop went in for repair and they said it cant be fixed as the vga isnt working? what is this and could it be solved


A Video Graphics Array (VGA) connector is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector. The 15-pin VGA connector is found on many video cards, computer monitors, and some high definition television sets. On laptop computers or other small devices, a mini-VGA port is sometimes used in place of the full-sized VGA connector.
DE-15 is also conventionally called RGB connector, D-sub 15, mini sub D15, mini D15, DB-15, HDB-15, HD-15 or HD15 (High Density, to distinguish it from the older and less flexible DE-9 connector used on older VGA cards, which has the same shell size but only two rows of pins).
VGA connectors and cables carry analog component RGBHV (red, green, blue, horizontal sync, vertical sync) video signals, and VESA Display Data Channel (VESA DDC) data. In the original version of DE-15 pinout, one pin was keyed and 4 pins carried Monitor ID bits which were rarely used; VESA DDC redefined some of these pins and replaced the key pin with +5 V DC power supply.

How do i connect my laptop to my television


You need a VGA to TV cable. If your TV has a component input, you need a VGA to component cable, like the following one:

http://www.amazon.com/Male-3RCA-Component-Video-Cable/dp/B000SJ2TJ8/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1266279733&sr=8-9

The VGA connector is for your laptop (you connect in on the side) and the RCA connector (3 plugs) is for your TV

Check your TV for a green, blue and red connector on back.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Thank you

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

I am trying to connect my PC to my TV. I have a Sharp HDTV and my PC is a Toshiba with windows XP. I have a componert video cable which is connected to the TV and PC. I have used Fn and F5 didn't work....


what model of TV was it please,
Does your computer have tv out video card installed?
For video to tv you will need a vga to tv converter,this is an external device and will work on the computers vga output straight into a vga input and give you 1 x vga out,1 x rca out, 1 x s/video out,comes supplied all prebuilt with onboard graphics solution. no extra power required runs straight of vga output.
Once the computers video output is established then set the TV up to tune into the converters output signal.
HD TV can be set up to run thru rca and components and if model is late enough shuld come equip with serial vga input for computers.Other than that HDMI seems to be the better quality of picture over rca component.Cost verses dollar really and function.

Cheap fix VGA to TV CONVERTER
Expensive Fix HDMI to HDMI

(it is posible to hdmi over cat5e)
NO COMPARISON FOR QUALITY.
