    Unfortunately Toshiba did not install an S-Video out on this model, it even has the insert indicationg S-video but it's capped with a blind, and this ewas indicated in the specs so no cheating from Toshiba side. Thanks for the listing jell587 but this is exactly what I tried, these plug adapters don't work I'm afrraid.

How do I connect my laptop to my led tv?


Is there a HMDI output on your Laptop or a VGA output. Some TV's have a DSUB input source that allows VGA depends on your laptop it could be HDMI if so TV should have an extraz HDMI input on the back and you change the source input on the TV to the HDMI 2 or HDMI 3 source depending on where you plugged in the P.C. . If HDMI you need to buy a HDMI cable.

I have a toshiba satellite p755, it use to be able to hook up to my HD TV with the HDMI chord but now its not connecting..whats the problem?


Make sure all connections Power ,HDMI and any other connecting leads have secure dust free connections also check each lead for any kinks / bends .
Connecting a Toshiba Satellite Laptop to a TV is an ideal way to enjoy videos, photos and other media on the laptop on a much larger screen.
Satellite Laptops can be connected to TVs using VGA, S-Video and even HDMI, though the TV has to have compatible inputs as well.

Connect the RGB cable or S-video cable to an open input on the TV.
Depending on the type of TV, it may or may not have a RGB input.
S-video may have to be used instead.
Connect the 1/4 inch to RCA Y-cable into the TV using the same input as the VGA or S-video cable.
Connect the other end of the VGA or S-video cable and the audio cable into the laptop.
The video ports are on the sides of the laptop.
The audio cable should go into the headphone jack of the laptop.

If our Toshiba Satellite Pro 300 laptop does not have a HDMI output, is there a way we can we still hook up our laptop with our TV?


Yes. The best option would depend on what TV you have. The HDMI inputs on most consumer displays won't accept PC resolutions. Assuming you want to take the VGA output of your PC, and that it doesn't have a Display Port or DVI output, and without knowing the model of your TV, the safest recommendation would be to use a product specifically designed to cross-convert VGA to HDMI formatted for consumer displays (1080p, 720p, 1080i), such as this one.

How can I connect my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872 laptop to my TV?


Check your notebook for "S-Video / TV out" port that has a 7-pin jack instead of a standard 4-pin S-Video jack. Check your laptop before ordering this adapter.

The newer your computer is, the better chance that it comes with either a RCA Composite or SVIDEO connection. Some notebook computers also have video outputs on them. When buying a new computer always look for the words "TV out" or "video out" in the computer description. 

If you only have a VGA connector and don't have an HDTV then your best choice is to buy a newer video card with an S-Video connector. There are other third party solutions out there but the quality is very poor and we do not recommend it. 

The VGA port is the connector that's connected to your PC monitor (the TV like device that came with your computer). This connector is usually only usable for VGA Monitors or HDTV setups. If you have an HDTV this will give you the best image possible. 

If you have an RCA Composite connector on the back of your computer, then you can use that. You may also need to power down your computer and reboot to be able to get the signal. You need an RCA Composite cable that will be long enough to reach from your computer to your PC. Connect the cable to the back of the computer to the back of your TV SET. 

S-Video is superior to that of RCA Composite and will give you a clearer picture. If you have a fairly new TV you should have this connector in the back. You will need to buy an S-VIDEO cable, which you can buy just about anywhere you buy home video products. Connect the cable to your S-Video on the back of your computer and then connect it on the back of your TV

How to display internet contex on tv


This is strange setup since you have no video output. Are you sure you don't have a VGA out as it would make it easier.,It can be done without the VGA though.

You will need a USB to s-video cable like this...

Then you need this video package to connect to the TV...

Can i connect toshiba satellite a205 to tv?


Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...

I am trying to connect my PC to my TV. I have a Sharp HDTV and my PC is a Toshiba with windows XP. I have a componert video cable which is connected to the TV and PC. I have used Fn and F5 didn't work....


what model of TV was it please,
Does your computer have tv out video card installed?
For video to tv you will need a vga to tv converter,this is an external device and will work on the computers vga output straight into a vga input and give you 1 x vga out,1 x rca out, 1 x s/video out,comes supplied all prebuilt with onboard graphics solution. no extra power required runs straight of vga output.
Once the computers video output is established then set the TV up to tune into the converters output signal.
HD TV can be set up to run thru rca and components and if model is late enough shuld come equip with serial vga input for computers.Other than that HDMI seems to be the better quality of picture over rca component.Cost verses dollar really and function.

Cheap fix VGA to TV CONVERTER
Expensive Fix HDMI to HDMI

(it is posible to hdmi over cat5e)
NO COMPARISON FOR QUALITY.
