Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I bought a connector that you would use for an ipod but, I still have no sound. On the back of my Vizio TV...where the RGB cable is hooked up, there is a small headphone size jack there. Is that the one I'm supposed to be using to play sounds through my computer?

Clarifying...

You are trying to play audio from the TV through your computer?

You need an adapter cable that has an 1/8" stereo phone plug on one end, and two RCA male jacks on the other end.

The RCA connectors are to be plugged into your RV using the AUDIO OUT jacks (usually red/white) and the small plug goes into the auxiliary or line in jack on the back of your computer.

Then, Double-Click on the volume icon in the system tray (this should bring up the system mixer), unmute the line in sound if it is not already and run the "slider" control for that input up about half way.

then, Tune the TV to whatever channel or input you wish and adjust the volume level on your computer to a comfortable listening level.

ps. Some TVs don't use fixed level audio outputs, and the volume will vary as you run the volume up/down on the TV, too...

We are trying to hook up a VIZIO sound bar model#S3820w-Co to our Vizio TV we also have Directv and a dvd player hook to this tv which wire do we hook from sound bar to Tv


If the TV and sound bar have an optical connector, then get the optical cable to connect the two. If not then use the audio out jacks on the TV and don't forget to change the audio set up to switch the sound to the sound bar.

Make sure your DVD player has HDMI or Component RGB output,you will also need RGB component cables or HDMI cables to connect the DVD player to your Vizio,once you have attached one of the above cables you will need to press the input button on your TV'S remote to select either HDMI or Component.

How to hook up TV with set top Cable box


If you have a new HD cable box then I would use the RGB cables. It is a 5 cable cord with color codes of RED-GREEN-BLUE and a Red/White for audio. They will go from the output of the cable box to COMPONENT INPUT on the back of the set along with the audio in. This will give you the best possible picture and sound.

TV displays RGB code and then displays, no signal and then shuts off. What does the RGB code mean?


It means the source is not set correctly. Switch the source to input 0 (cable or antenna depending on your particular set up).

I can not get TV to pick signal from PC


I had a problem where my VO22L was giving me a "No RGB Signal" "The Power Will Be Turned Off" message when I had it in RGB mode (with VGA input from my PC). Anytime I left my PC on and turned off the power of this unit, I got this message. I just got off the phone with a very friendly and patient Tech Support woman at Vizio, who talked to several different techs who all came up with things that didn't help. Finally, while we were talking, she came up with the idea of going into the settings menu and doing a "System Reset" to see what happens. What do you know, it worked!

To anyone else having this problem, try this. With the PC and TV on, in RGB mode, go into the menu screen with the remote. The far right tab is "Setup". Use the arrow keys to go down to the "System Reset" option. When prompted "are you sure" select "Yes". I powered the monitor off and on, and the problem is gone. Now if it happens again, I know what to do.

Extended my monitor to a Vizio 37" LCD TV Echoed Sound


You have an HDMI connection on a Thinkpad T20???
Per definition, HDMI is supposed to send video and audio data from the TV to the PC -so, yes, it should work.

I say "should", because I tried to hook up my PC that way and I went back to a VGA connection (and sent the sound to an old stereo), because the resolution was awful.
I rather think that the audio cable is the culprit here - if the connectors are not fitting perfectly, they can create a lot of distortion.

Also check your audio settings on the PC (updated driver, settings not on maximum volume, etc.)

If you want to try HDMI, there is no need to get the ultra expensive "Monster" cable. Look here for an example.

Can't play ipod through TV


The new iPods don't work like the previous ones. The cable you need for yours most likely uses the dock connector on the bottom. I ran into this as well. Why do they do this? Oh, yeah... money. ;)

It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure. From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables. From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable. From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right). Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
