How are you connecting your laptop to the samsung TV? Is it DVI/HDMI or thru more-common S-video cable? I have successfully ported laptop screen to TV with S-Video. After you connect your S-video cable, right-click on blank desktop of laptop and bring up the Display Properties (usually the last entry on pop-up menu). Got to last tab, usually called Settings. You should see two monitors displayed on top part of this page. One of these (most likely #2) is your TV. Click on #2 monitor and check the box that reads "Extend my Windows desktop to this screen" (or words to that effect). Be sure you have the TV turned on and facing you because you may find yourself clicking on icons on the TV screen. You'll probably have to play with which is primary display because some video players have trouble playing to a secondary screen. You may also try the Fn+F8 (CRT/LCD) button on your laptop (those are the keys on my Dell). That may turn on the TV-out on the laptop. Lastly, remember that this will only get you video. You'll have to connect a 3.5 mm cable to you Line-Out port on the laptop and connect it somehow to your TV or SurroundSound speakers. There should be a audio-in port on those other devices for that. Or you can just play the sound thru your laptop speakers.

I'm not that familiar with the DVI-out but I suspect that it would work very similiarly. Good luck.

I believe that is the display or exit button.when you find the correct button, the display will cycle through a few formats and then disappear. JVC is a lot like Sony in that you better never lose your remote control.

JVC TV (LT-32E478) Stuck (loops) in standby mode...? Buttons on TV have no effect... Will not turn off?

Do you mean the JVC Logo keeps appearing?

If so, call JVC for the software update. I believe it may even be posted on their site. You can check in the TV menu to verify. You should have F108 or higher.

If the update doesnt apply, you need a Digital PWB for the TV because it is defective.

JVC LT-32DS75SJ issue with HDMI

Try this

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.
