Question about RCA Analog (RCA) to Digital (VGA) Converter for PC (displays TV image on PC) (AD01)

Open Question

VGA RCA connector

I have a vga rca connector and I'm trying to connect my first desktop I had, DELL OptiPlex GX150 to a SANYO Tv "Not LCD or Plasma" Just basic Tube type. and I don't get anything but the normal blue screen. The same screen set for my Nintendos or PlayStation2. I hooked it up to my Sony PSone's little LCD and I get a picture but its black with somewhat like white rain coming down the screen. Still no display. The seller told me all I have to do is just plug it in, No Drivers needed. To see what I have go to images, type "vga rca connector" and its the very first image of what my VGA/RCA cable looks like. Yellow RCA, Purple S-Video, Blue VGA.

The Tv has "NO" AV ports only a Cable Jack witch my AV ports are run off the VCR. The Tv is a 30" I think and the only date I could find on the back of the Tv is SANYO 1994 Color Black. I plane to get a New 40" LCD Tv later but can't afford one right now. I went to bestbuy to check some and they come with AV Ports, S-Video and even a VGA Port NOW.

But right now I want to find out how to get it to work on my current Tv.

ok so what you need to do is put the cable from your cable provider/ antenna (or what ever you use)to the combo players CABLE IN connection.. then color match of the red yellow and white cables from the OUT on the combo to the IN on the TV your tv has to be set on AUX sometimes called L1 or L2 depending on your tv and which set of red yellow and white holes on the tv you use... your combo will also probably need to be turned on.. try that should work!

SOURCE: RCA TV lost Color

It sounds like your grandson found the "monochrome" setting in the menu on your remote. It may be in the "picture settings", "set-up" or "advanced" setting.

How do i use my tv sa a monitur for my pc but has no VGA on the back just a HDMI plug and scart socket.

Chris, what happens when you plug the hdmi connector into the TV and your adapter, while your computer is running and connected to the adapter?
Are there drivers required for the adapter?

As an alternative, you could install a video board in your Dell that includes an HDMI output. I have a laptop with one, and connect it to my TV often; works fine.

How can i connect my vga dell laptop inspiron to a rca sanyo old model tv


You need a converter to connect. At the links below are some resolutions that I found doing a google search.

That would convert the VGA output to RCA input... then you just need a 3.5mm to RCA left/right audio cable...
Like that one... to connect the headphone jack to the audio inputs on your TV.

I need to connect a Dell Optiplex GX520 PC Desktop to a TV that is non-HDMI Can you assist?

As I see you have two choices to connect your PC to TV.
1. Use VGA to RCA Component Cable

2. Use VGA to Scart Cable - It is hard to find that one.

So if you choose the first option, you have to connect VGA to your computer (it is marked with 9 in the picture below) and RCA end to the TV.
Before that, lower the resolution of the computer and set the frequency of the Video adapter to 50Hz.
Make sure your Video card software initializes the TV.

That's all. Simple as that.
Good luck!

I want to connect my dell optiplex gx 280 desktop computer to my sony television, my tv manual says i can connect my computer to a port which i can easily locate on the television but i have a problem...

Every Sony LCD TV comes with VGA port (15 pin D-Sub connector) assuming you have LCD T. You can connect your monitor cable to this port & select the input on TV from the menu.

Cables to hookup to tv

Does your TV have a VGA input? Does your Video card have RCA output?

If one or the other is true ... you can probably do whata you want.

How do i connect a dell latitude 610 to a mitsubishi tv (has RCA inputs) I think thats what you call the red/white/yellow things? Sorry I just don't know anything about this.

Usually if you want to connect your laptop to a Tv/Lcd you will need to have a vga cable, because your laptop has a vga port only. If your tv has rca inputs only, you need to get a vga to rca cable. you can get that from a local electronic shop.

Connect Laptop to TV

It depends on what kind of TV you have. If you have a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, it may have a VGA connection already installed. If that is the case, all you need is a standard VGA cable to connect from your notebook to your TV.

If you have a TV without a VGA connection you will need a scan converter to convert your signal from VGA to RCA or composite video signal. These can be purchased online or from electronics stores like Radio Shack. You plug your VGA connection from the computer to the scan converter, then RCA or composite video cables from the converter to the TV.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
