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.

How to I hook up my pc to a TV


Check your PC for "S-Video" output or for a "HDMI" or for a "composite-video" output.

Check the back of your TV for an available S-Video input, or for an available HDMI input, or for an available "composite-video" input.

Buy a cable to connect from your output to your input.

Cannot conect presario V4000 to projector


Set your screen-resolution to 800-by-600 at 60 Hz.
Then, use Fn-F4, to see if the projector accepts 800-by-600 input.

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!

Can I go from VGA to SVGA?


If the question is can I convert my composite video output to a super video input then the answer is NO,

The composite is coaxial (2 wires) the S-Video uses 4pins and there is no S-Video output on a Presario 1200 laptop.

You can however use a Multi-AV SCART adaptors with Input/Output signal switch where you plug in the composite video output into the top video and 3.5 mm jack stereo audio into the mono audio connections on top.( via a stereo to mono 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).

Can i watch tv through my epson projector?


Yes, if your projector has a video input. Connect your projector's composite video input jack (usually colored yellow) to your video source. You said you want to use it to watch TV, so you'll want to connect it to the video output of a video tuner (such as a digital TV converter box) or a VCR with a built-in tuner. Set your projector to the video input and you're good to go! If your only tuner is your television, you'll need to check your owner's manual to see if it has an "output" jack. Some do, some don't. If yes, you're in luck. If not, try one of the other sources I mentioned earlier. Good luck!

How do i connect my projecter with my pc


Hi,

Your Sharp XR-10X will only allow video inputs through the:
1. RGB/ component input (15-pin HD)
2. composite video input (RCA phono color yellow)
2. S-Video input ( 4 pin mini-DIN )

Depending on the output(s) available from your PC, you can use any of the following:
a. the yellow RCA female
b. S-Video output (4 pin mini-DIN )
c. VGA (which normally goes to the monitor) but would require a VGA/HD to HDMI Format Converter such as the one here

Should this be not enough information, please post back with what PC brand/model that you have. Additionally please specify what Video Card are you using if your PC is a desktop.

Good luck and kind regards.

Laptop to tv


Hi you don't have enough info to give a complete answer but maybe I can help. The modulator converts the video (and/or audio) output of a DVD player (or camcorder or video game or PC) into a channel 3/4 signal that is compatible with a TV's cable or antenna input. It makes it so the standard audio/video outputs and the cable input (even passed through a VCR) work simultaneously. So... The "S-Video to RCA" convertor plugs into the "Video In" on the modulator; this allows you to take your S-Video Signal OR your Composite Video to an "RF Coaxial Antenna" input signal. You should have 3 pcs. the S-video to 3-RCA cable and the coax cable and the modulator. Here is a link to a pic that should help http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/videoware_1965_3477147
