Connecting laptop audio to tv

I cannot connect my IBM Thinkpad to my Samsung LCD TV LE19R7 using the tv's onscreen menu, no matter what I try. The manual doesn't help much either.I am using a simple jack plug from the headphone socket to audio in on tv.The lead is fine as it works pc to dvd player to tv, but I can't get it to go direct.

Re: Connecting laptop audio to tv

I had the same issue with a thinkpad T61 which i was connecting using VGA and a audio jack going straqight from the headphone socket to the back of tv.
I had picture but no sound and i found that once connected the issue could be solved by rotating the projection setting on the laptop(Fn+F7). Basically switched back to laptop only display, then back to laptop and projector display again and teh sound just kicked in. 
i think it's related to the projector setting on the laptop rather than an issue with the tv.

Re: Connecting laptop audio to tv

Is it a double sided audio jack? or is it simple audio jack plug to phono (usually red and white) jacks?

Connecting my laptop to my sansui 42" lcd tv via the hdmi cable, i get clear picture but no sound

Does your laptop feed sound through the HDMI connection? You may have to use the HDMI 1 jack on the HDLCD3200. Change the HDMI setting in the audio menu on the tv to DVI and run a seperate audio cord from the laptop to tv. I hope this is helpful

To play laptop thru samsung tv I am attempting to play laptop movie thru tv. I have tried the rca y cable with 3.5 mm plug from headphones of laptop to red and white audio in on the samsung tv., no sound....

So you are connecting the laptop to the TV using VGA port of the TV, right? To get sound in the PC input mode, you need to use the PC audio input jack (green jack, mini 3.5mm jack) not the RED and White RCA audio input, they are for Composite Video AV inputs. That is how I have my laptop and TV setup to watch Netflix.

Nothing appears on my LCD TV display

1 Ensure the LCD TV display is turned on.
2 Verify that all the cables are properly connected to the LCD TV
display, including the power cable.
3 Check to see if there is a blue or amber light on the lower,
right-hand corner of the LCD TV display. A blue light indicates
the LCD TV display is on. An amber light means the LCD TV
display is in power save mode.
4 Ensure the proper source is selected in the Input Select menu.
See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information.
5 Reconnect any devices that are currently connected to the LCD
TV display. If you are using multiple devices, connect and test
one device at a time.
6 Connect another device that you know is working properly.
7 Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset.

Problem Possible Solution No sound

1 Ensure mute is not turned on. Pressing the Mute button on
the remote control turns the mute function on and off.
2 If only certain LCD TV channels do not have sound, then you
need to correct the Input Select menu in the TV Menu (see
"Input Select Menu" on page 24).
3 Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the
audio input connectors on your LCD TV display and audio
output connectors on your devices. Ensure that the cable colors
match the connectors colors.
4 Also, ensure that the audio cables are connected to the same
row as the video cables. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on
page 5 for the location of the connectors.
5 Reconnect the device using the same type of connector. For
example, if you are using the composite connector on the
bottom, try connecting the device to the composite connector
on the side of the LCD TV display. See "About Your LCD TV
Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
6 Connect the device using a different connector. For example,
if you are experiencing the problem using a composite
connector, try using the component connector.
NOTE: To connect to a different connector, you need the
appropriate cables for that connector. See your device
documentation for a list of supported connections.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
7 Test the device on a different TV.

Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:

If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
  1. Make sure your TV and computer are off.
  2. Using a 15 pin D-sub (standard) video cable, connect the Video Out jack on your computer's video card to the PC In jack on the back of your TV.
  3. Using an audio cable with a min-stereo plug on one end and two RCA jacks on the other, connect the Audio Out jack on your computer to the left and right PC Audio In jacks on your TV. (Note: If you have your computer connected to separate speakers, you can skip this step)
  4. Switch on the Notebook and Adjust the Resolution (800 x 600 pixels would do). You can go to Control Panel and Adjust the screen resolution. (Keep ‘Screen Refresh rate’ at 60hz in the Monitor Settings)
  5. Switch on the TV and try to Select the Source as 'PC' (you can do this by either pressing the 'Source' button several times on your TV remote or go to the Menu - Setup and Select the 'PC' as source there).
  6. In most cases, after following the above steps, the TV would start to show 'Auto Adjusting' message and it will start showing your Desk top on the TV. But incase it doesn't work, you can do the following:
a. Mostly the problem lies with the VGA cable. Make sure you have the right one (15 pin) and its securely attached at both ends. If you are not using the right VGA Cable, it means that there is no connection between your TV and Notebook. Your TV will show 'PC' in Grey in the Source Input list (Go to ‘Menu’ from the TV remote).
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.
