Connect Sony Vaio Laptop to DVI on Sony LCD Projection TV

I have a Sony LCD Projection TV and want to connect my Sony Vaio Laptop. The TV has a DVI input. However, when I connect my laptop to it, using a VGA-DVI cable, I do not get a picture. (If I connect to another TV, it works ok, so the laptop VGA output & Cable are ok).

The Sony LCD Projection TV says: ''DVI-HDTV Input: Can accommodate a copy-protected digital connection (HDCP)to other devices (such as digital set-top boxes). The DVI-HDTV input is compliant with the EIA-861 standard and is NOT intended for use with personal computers. See the instruction manual that came with your equipment for details about connecting it with the LCD Projection TV''

Any suggestions how to get around this? Why won't this TV project the image from my laptop??

Thanks!!
Greg

Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

What cable do i need to connect my laptop to my Sanyo DP50740?


Hello jaygee7414,
Sanyo DP50747 not support for D sub conection (PC in).
To connect PC in, you can use DVI or HDMI input.
Some Laptops already have HDMI or DVI out put. Like HP mini, sony vaio.

Want to connect my Sony vaio VGN-A250 to Sharp 19'' LCD TV


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
