I am trying to connect a Sony Trinitron TV and HP Pavillon laptop through the S-video cable. I press FCN F4 and the image appears in the TV, but it only lasts for 1 second, then it disappears..As if the Tv couldn´t handle the image. Do I have to make changes in my computer resolution?

I want to connect my sony tritron tv to my hp laptop


If you Sony TV has a VGA video input socket then connect a VGA video cable to the TV and the other end of the VGA cable to the VGA video connector on your laptop.
Power up the TV and go to the Input selection Menu and select PC connector then boot up your laptop and the Windows video data will automatically to the TV.
You can toggle between the TV the LCD or both by pressing Fn key plus F4 key.

Broken Laptop screen, trying to connect to tv.


OK, you have to hit the FN (Function Key) + the F4 key to get the image to display on the TV. Press and hold the FN key then hit the F4 key and the image should appear on the tv if you have a VGA cable connected to the TV and to the HP Netbook.

Once you see your desktop on the tv you can get your files off my purchasing a USB Flash Drive of at least 8GB or 16GB (Just depends on how big your My Documents folde is). Then put the usb flash drive in the usb port and copy whatever files you want. Most of the things you want will probably be your documents, music, pictures and videos. These are normally found in the My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, My Videos folders. There is no need copying things like programs or other stuff because they will not work. They have to be installed thru the normal process to update the windows folders, settings and registry.

Tried projector no work


Connect your projector to your laptop using a VGA cable. Now turn ON your projector and your laptop.

To make your screen projected, look at your function keys (F1 to F12). Look for the icon which looks like a laptop LCD and a TV. It should appear like LCD icon/TV icon. In some model it is in F4 while F3 in Lenovo. Example, you found the icon in F4, just press and hold down the FN key and press F4 to send your desktop image to the projector. This combination is called the "dual monitor" setup which in your case, the second monitor is a digital projector.

Laptop to tv


Your model laptop has S-Video out capabilities. Depending on what model TV you are connecting to, you would then need an S-Video to (whatever input connection your TV supports: S-Video, VGA, RCA, HDMI) cable. Once you have the cable connected, set your TV to the input method for the cable used, and press Fn + F4 on your laptop Keyboard to project the image over. May need tp press more than once depending if you wish to only display on one screen or both. S-Video is only a video out cable, so you will alos need to run an audio connector cable from your laptop to TV as well, or just use a pair of external laptop speakers for your sound.

Hooking up my hp laptop to a sony trinitron tv


Hello,


Let me explain on how to connect the TV to HP notebook.

There are two ways to connect the TV to the notebook. One is with the S-Video cable and another one is HDMI cable. (If you computer had HDMI port)

Connecting notebook and TV with S-video cable:

You need to get the Svideo cable and connect it to the notebook Svideo port to TV Svideo port and press Fn+ F4 to get the notebook display on the TV.

For the first time pressing the Fn+F4 keys, you will get the display on the TV and there will be no display on the Notebook.

If you press the Fn+F4 for second time, you will get display back to the notebook and Tv screen becomes blank.

By pressing the same keys again will show the display on both the screen.

Samething connecting with the HDMI cable, if your computer had HDMI port.

If you won't get the display on the external screen even after following the correct process, then once you need to reinstall the display driver.

If the issue persists, then you have to check with another cable.

Note: No need to install any software on the notebook to connect the TV to the notebook.
