Red tinge on tv screen when laptop plugged through HDMI

Hi - when we plug the laptop into the HDMI socket there is a red tinge over the whole tv screen, also the the tv screen only shows the wall paper, if we open media player we have to drag it over from the far left of the screen. Have tried it on another flat screen and it worked fine.

Neo2123 is correct.

The HDMI output is setup as a second disply, not Primary disply.
You will need to get into the video Driver settings and configure this for a single monitor.

1. Right click on the desktop
2. select "graphics properties"
3. set up the "Digital Display"

All the steps or naming may be different on you computer, but some of this is fiarly standard.

Connecting wii to Sony bravia tv


If you have an old V.C.R that has Red, White and Yellow sockets for AV and it still works then plug it into the RF socket tune the V.C.R to your TV and connect your Wii to the Red,White and Yellow R.C.A connections and you should be playing in no time. I have done this myself on a new Samsung TV it will work. If you have no V.C.R and you have HDMI sockets in your TV you can buy an adapter to convert the existing AV port on the Wii to HDMI then simply connect a HDMI cable (if you have 1 if not they are cheap enough off eBay starting at $6.00+AUD or around $20.00AUD Retail) to the Wii and then the TV ensuring that both the TV and the Wii are powered down prior to connecting any cables at the back. The HDMI Adapter for Wii is available on eBay from $5.00 AUD to $24.95AUD depending on the country you purchase it from. If all else fails a second TV with Red, White and Yellow RCA plugs will work but also the most expensive of the fixes. All fixes suggested will work. Good Luck I hope this helps.

How can i tell wether i need an led backlight replacement kit or a whole new led screen for my laptop?


If you have HDMI access plug in and get a display on a tv. Then unplug HDMI plug. For a brief moment you should see an image on the laptop display. If you don't see anything at all, then its probably not your back light.

Were is adio red and white for sound when laptop conects to baird 42 inch


Hi there,

Connecting a laptop to a tv is usually achieved by the use of an audio cable with a 3.5mm stereo plug on one end, and male Red / White RCA connectors on the other end.

Plug the 3.5mm stereo plug into your laptop "headphone" socket, and connect the Red / White RCA connectors to your PC-in audio RCA sockets.

If you tv's PC-In only supports the 3.5mm audio socket, then purchase a lead with 3.5mm stereo plugs on both ends.


Cheers

I have a fisher price smart cycle and do not see how the wires fit onto the TV . the wires are yellow, white , red but i don't see how they fit am i missing something or some part that makes it fit?


Generally speaking, the yellow wire is for the video (the pictures and graphics on the screen), and the white and red wires are for the audio (the music and sounds for the speakers). The white wire would be for the left channel or speaker, and the red wire for the right channel or speaker. The connections for these wires are usually RCA phono plugs. These plugs have a small metal cylinder or jack in the center of the plug, and 3 squarish metal pieces surrounding the jack - the whole jack or plug looks a bit like a flower with its stamen in the middle.

These RCA jacks fit into corresponding holes or sockets on your TV that are color-coded just like the plugs are - there should be a yellow socket for the video, and a red and a white socket for the audio left and right. Most TV's have these sockets. On older TV's, there should be a yellow, red, and white set of sockets on the front or the back of the TV that the jacks from the wires you are trying to connect fit into. On newer TV's, like high-definition TV's, these sockets might also be found on the side panel of the TV.

You can check your owner's manual for your TV to see what sort of connectors/sockets it has available. Usually most TV's will have a set of RCA connectors to plug your wires into. Other types of connections include VGA, DVI, or HDMI. If you do not have any RCA connections on your TV (unlikely), then you can cheaply buy an appropriate adapter from your local electronics store or a place like Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Some of these adapters are called "Y-adapters," and allow you to connect all 3 of the yellow, red, and white wires, to the adapter, and then the adapter plugs into the appropriate connector on the TV, which might be a VGA connector, or even an HDMI connector. Again, check the owner's manual for your TV, and bring it with you if you need to go hunting for an adapter to connect your device.

For your reference, VGA connectors, the older type, are usually blue in color and have 9 pins for the male connector, or 9 holes, for the socket. Whether it's audio, video, electrical wiring, plumbing, or computers, the "gender" of a connection is always the same: the socket or holes end is female, the male or pins end is male.

The newer HDMI connectors are flat and have just one row of pins or holes inside a metal sheath.

So, basically, you need to figure out what sort of connections your TV has to plug into. If it has red, white, and yellow RCA phono connections, you are all set. I do hope that this has not confused you further! I do try to help, and I wish you all the best in connecting your smart cycle.

LG Studioworks 552V monitor incompatibility problem.


Right, well, IF your TV has a DB15 Female Plug on it then you CAN, connect it up and it will work, as a second "Monitor". OR If the laptop, has a "Composite Video" a Yellow RCA socket, then you can, connect to the TV's Composite IN. & it will be a second monitor. Otherwise you cannot, the VGA signal is NOT compatible with a TV's input. SOME cards have a connector that plugs into the DB15 and to the TV, but they are "Special". In saying that though you can "Micky Mouse" things together and get an output, but it real poor quality, and disappointing results, there are various posts on the net about doing this if you wish.
Remember DRIVERS, you also need the drivers installed & setup correctly in order for the hardware to work. As a tip, When connecting to a TV, always connect like this......First, plug all cables into TV's correct Video input(s). Connect up the Sound, plug all cables into laptop, turn TV ON. NOW, start the laptop, you should now soon see the an image.
NOTE: Some laptops & other devices, have HDMI out, sometimes, the AUDIO is not passed through, the HDMI cable, & the Audio must be run from Audio/Line OUT on laptop to AV IN on TV.Also some laptops have a socket that a multi-way 4/5/6/7 pins. A connector plugs into this, you then can connect to these connections, as you would normally. Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

Hdmi Port .


If the laptop has no HDMI port, the forget the whole HDMI thing cause getting it through that port when the laptop or desktop is not made for it will end up costing as much as a new computer altogether. You need to find out if the laptop has any Composite or Component outputs. Those are relatively easy to spot. a Composite output is usually a RCA jack and also usually colored yellow, and goes into the yellow RCA port on your TV next to the red and white RCA ports which are the left and right sound channels. The Component outputs are also RCA jacks, but are usually red green and blue cause each wire sends its own color to make up the TV's image. They will also go on the back of your TV near all the other RCA ports. Wether your TV has just HDMI and no other porte or not, or if it has either Composite or Component inputs or both, that i don't know cause i don't know what your TV is. As for the sound, if you also want it on the TV, you just need to go to the local electronics store and buy an adapter/wire that goes from a 1/8 stereo headphone jack to 2 RCA jacks on the other side, one being white and the other being red. See where i'm going with that?:P Plug the 2 RCA jacks from the wire you bought into the TV in the corresponding inputs that go with the input you plugged the image in, and the 1/8 stereo jack into the headphone output of your laptop.
