Hi,
This may sound silly but it is often overlooked by many people......Have you changed your T.V channel to AV? There is usualy av1 and av2 options. Try these and let me know if you have any success or not.
Regards,

IBM T20 screen bad, IBM i1400 screen good-Compatible?


Yes, it's possible, but unless you are a qualified laptop technician, I recommend that you take both computers to a qualified technician, to get the job done properly and safely and correctly.

Thimkpad t20 s-video not working


You don't go into display properties; you just tell your computer to output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and another key on your keyboard; sometimes its F4...it will have a picture of a screen on it...

Looking at a blurry picture of the keyboard, it looks like the key could be F7.

So, first connect your computer to the cable and to the TV. Set the TV on the input that you are inputting to. Press FN + F7 and it will route the display from your screen to the output. If you press Fn + F7 again, it may route the display to both the screen and the TV.

Thanks and please remember to give this a thumbs up rating.

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.
