Hi,

Based on your post/description:
TV - 4pins S-Video and RCA (yellow) Composite inputs;
Notebook - 7pins S-Video and VGA female.

There are several ways you can make it work:
1. Use a (7pins) S-Video to RCA cable;
2. Use a 7pins S-Video to 4pins S-Video adapter cable;
3. Use a VGA to RCA converter.

The links above are only examples of the commonly available. You may need to check with your local electronic/video store if they have similar products.

Should you like to tinker and DIY (do-it-yourself), this link shows how to make one.

Any of the above will work but video quality differs. Additionally, most if not all TVs can not accept high screen resolution of a monitor/LCD hence you need to lower your display to something like 800 X 600.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

What does scart mean?


images?q=tbn:and9gcsq3imtjhqb0abmt8dptscde8waay3n_hlomxu7sbdjgyrsqmaoxypwoa
A SCART connector is a physical and electrical interconnection between two pieces of audio-visual equipment, such as a television set and a video cassette recorder (VCR). Each device has a female 21-pin connector interface. A cable with a male plug at each end is used to connect the devices. (The 21st pin is actually not a pin but a ground shield contact.) Stereo audio, composite video, and control signals are provided in both directions. RGB video signals are input only. The interface is an industry standard
originated by the French company, Peritel. Today, most new television sets and VCRs in the European market and other countries that use the PAL video standard come equipped with a SCART connector. SCART stands for Syndicat francais des Constructeurs d'Appareils Radio et Television. The connector is also known as a Euro-connector.
Although it is possible to build your own connecting cable, knowledgable people recommend buying a commercial cable because of the detailed pin-crossovers and close pin connections. Differerent cables serve different purposes. A cable for connecting a VCR or a TV set to a high-fidelity audio system needs to use only three of the 21 pins.
It is more difficult to use the SCART connector to interconnect a VCR to a computer monitor because of the difficulty of synchronizing the composite video signal (which is companded into red, green, and blue) from the VCR with the RGB signals needed by the monitor.

Looking at purchasing a used HP MP3135. In purchasing a HDMI female to M1-DA male adaptor, will this allow me to connect my laptop etc via HDMI cable? We also would like to connect a Wii and HD TV, how do...


HP available M1 to VGA (included )
Optional M1 to DVI (available on HP accesories)
To connect laptop via HDMI to Projector you need a HDMI to DVI adapter + Cable M1 to DVI (you get ONLY Video on DVI Output)
To connect Wii to projector you need a M1 to Composite

look the manuals on page 20-30

Need to get a torpedo projector to work with laptop


Unfortunately, there is no simple VGA-to-RCA adapter cable if you're connecting to a composite video input (usually colored yellow) or s-video input. VGA output is separate red, green and blue video and synchronizing signals, and they all need to be combined. You need a VGA-to-video converter to do this.

If the projector has component video input jacks, then you can buy a simple adapter cable.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a laptop and a tv. I would like to hook my laptop up to the tv. The tv does not have a slot for a VGA CABLE and my laptop does not have a slot for an RCA CABLE. What can I do to connect the two?


You need an Video out, adapter cable, for your model Laptop, IF yours indeed does have the ability to TV out, the "output" is "Composite Video" and goes into the Composite Video "IN" on the TV. Audio is taken from Line Out in laptop & goes to AV audio in, via a Phono Jack to RCA converter plug. Also it must have correct drivers and be enabled and have desktop extended to the TV either Cloned or Spanned.
Usually one connects up to the TV, powers TV on & then Turn your laptop on.
You may have a Yellow RCA socket on the back/side of your laptop, otherwise you have to get a converter cable.

No display from composite video input


Composite video are yellow RCA jacks and are made for analog signals of standard definition video. If you are connecting a digital source or a high definition output, it may be beyond the capabilities of the projector. You may be able to find a VGA to composite adapter if you laptop or whatever has a VGA output port. VGA is along the same lines of composite (analog, standard definition).

DVI to RCA3 AV OUT


DVI to Composite Video (yellow) adapters are available in many online stores for mail order. You will need to get a separate mini-RCA jack to stereo RCA adapter to hook the audio output from the computer to the stereo audio (red and white) connections of the cable.

Search google for DVI to composite video adapter, and the mini-RCA adapter can be found at most home entertainment or electronics stores (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)

Hooking projector


You will probably need a standard VGA cable. The ends look like the connection for a monitor. Take a look if you don't know what I'm talking about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

There should be a port on your laptop and one on the projector. After it's hooked up you might have to toggle between the projection settings or select the correct source on the projector. Normally, there is a source or input button on the projector. If the picture isn't showing up on the projector but is on the laptop or vice versa, you'll need to toggle between settings. On my dell, it is fn (function) and the F8 key but sometimes it's the F7 key or some other F? key, just look for the LCD/CRT on the function button or the picture of a monitor looking thing. This is only if you don't see the image from the projector. Hope this helps you out!

Hi,

It will work only if your TV has a Video OUT either in Composite RCA, S-video or in some other form although not all TV models have this feature.

Alternately, you can hook up your projector to an old VCR which definitely will have a Video OUT and use its built-in TV tuner. Of course you have likewise to connect a cable/aerial to the RF IN of the VCR.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
