S-video out isn't working

When plugged into monitor doesn't show. My S-video out on my Toshiba laptop worked fine for months. Then occasionally, the image would flicker. Now the image and display do not show up at all unless I'm holding the s-video cord in the computer the right way. This leads me to believe the pins are loose on my actual graphics card. Is it possible to fix just the s-video output, or do I need to replace the entire graphics card?

Have you tried hooking up an external monitor to it and seeing if it works? I would try that first to rule out a video card issue. If the external monitor works fine, here is a website with pictures on how to disassemble the laptop to replace the screen:

Toshiba lap top half screen rainbow lines


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Monitor will not boot up is reading no input signal


So either the computer isn't generating a video signal, the cable isn't carrying the signal to the monitor, or else the monitor isn't capable of receiving a video signal.To test this, first try a video cable that you know is good, in case your cable is bad, If it works with the other cable, the problem was your original video cable. If it still doesn't work, put your original cable back, and hook another computer up to the monitor. If the monitor makes the same message, the problem is with the monitor. If the other computer works when connected to this monitor, your problem was that the original computer isn't booting (which could be due to several reasons I will list below), or the video adapter is broken.Possible reasons for the computer not booting: bad power supply, bad power button, bad hard drive, bad memory, bad motherboard component. If you determine that it isn't booting, unplug everything except the keyboard mouse monitor and power cord, to see if that makes a difference. If it boots after that, something you unplugged was causing the problem, plug them each back in one by one, rebooting in between, and when it stops booting properly, the last thing you plugged in is causing the problem.

TFT185W80PS monitor is not working


Check if your monitor power led indicator is on if it is, try to check the cables of your monitor if it is properly plugged to your CPU if it isn't plugged it properly if the problem still doesn't solve try to open your cpu and and uninstall your video card if you have a separate one and clean it with a pencil eraser then install it again and try it if it will work. But if your video card is built in, there is a problem with your video card or maybe your monitor try to contact a reliable computer technician..Hope it will help you.

My computer was working this morning and then when I tried to turn it on today, it is showing no sign of power to the computer. The only light that is on is the light showing that the computer is plugged...


Hi,

The problem with your laptop isn't related with power supply. Even if your battery isn't working, it would have started with the help of the Charger/External supply.

The actual problem seems to be related with the Planner/Motherboard. When it stops working, it causes major problem. You should consult the manufacturer of your computer and if it is in its warranty period, they'll repair/replace it for free.

I have a Soyo Monitor MTNIDYLM2286 monitor. It was working fine for 1 year. 4 months ago it lost red and blue color so I replaced the laptop computer connection cord and the color came back. I was away ...


You know if it pops back and forth this could be an indication that the video card on your PC may not be doing well. The way to really make sure is plug your monitor into another working computer and see if you have the same issue if not and the monitor works fine you may want to replace the video card for your computer. Monitors are a dime a dozen these days especially CRTs that would be how I would approach this issue. Do not invest in a repair unless it is a flat screen monitor if you are going to pay for a repair at least do it for a flat monitor I have about 23 of them in my garage giving them away they are around. Thanks for using FixYa! John

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.


Hi,
Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Problem with overheating.


Hi Dear. Always Pick n Place notebooks very carefully. When need to pick with both hands you can pick it in any direction but when need to pick with single hand, always use vertical position, without pressing and forcing any area. Place it on any flat surface where you are sure that exhaust system of CPU's fan is well ventilated. Heating problem may occure due to many reasons. Verify CPU fan function in BIOS, Clean CPU cooling fan and exhaust system with Electric Blower. NEVER use continuous charging, plug out charger wire when battry is 100% full, charg again when low battry alerts. This will increase battry life & backup time.
