Using s video output

I plugged the s video into my television to use as monitor but my tv says no signal. I tried restarting the laptop with the svideo plugged in and that did not work. I can find any specific instructions on how to do this (I thought the laptop would automatically send the signal like it does with the standard monitor plug.

Hi,

Two things you can try:
1. You need to Activate your TV OUT feature in the Monitor setting of your display properties and select Clone so as to mirror what you see in your laptop's display in your TV. As you posted, the S cable must already be inserted before powering up your laptop; and/or

2. You may need to lower your laptops screen resolution. Most but not all TV units have lower resolution capacity than monitors. Perhaps try with the lowest possible setting (800X600) and when it shows on your TV, slowly increase till it blanks out again. pressing escape would revert you back to last setting that worked. Additionally you may need to lower likewise your laptop's Color Quality setting and/or the Screen Refresh rate.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Additionally -
    On Toshiba laptops you need to press the FN+F5 simultaneously four times to get the TV-Out setting. In some versions of Toshiba, it is Fn+F7.

    Cheers.

Please describe your how to hook up and compaq nc6220 to a tv. I have tried an adaptor with the three prong yellow/white/red to a video adaptor but no luck.


The easiest way to hook up any laptop to a tv is with either an HDMI cord, or an Svideo cord. It looks like your laptop supports Svideo, but make sure your TV supports it as well. The connection should look similar to this: snowyrat_0.jpg
If your TV does have the port, go to a nearby electronics store, and buy an Svideo cord. An employee there should be able to help you find one for a fairly decent price. If your TV doesn't have an Svideo slot, you should be able to get an Svideo to AV converter cord along with your Svideo cord. You can connect the Svideo to your laptop and the Svideo slot in the converter, then plug the AV cords into your TV. Hope this helps!

First tell me, how did you connect the laptop to the television what connection did you use? did you use VGA or Svideo?

When i plug in to s-video port on my toshiba m45-s169 laptop to my television it doesnt work.how do i enable the port?


Change the display settings on the laptop to 800x600 - right click on the desktop > properties > advanced tab You will need to select TV out to enable that function use the FN key and the F5 key together and each time you press it will toggle through an output, not necessarily in this order
❖ Built-in display panel only ❖ Built-in display panel and external monitor simultaneously ❖ External monitor only ❖ Built-in display panel and external video device simultaneously (This should be SVideo TV out) ❖ Other external video device only (This should be SVideo TV out)
Press the FN key and the F5 key 4 times
On the TV you will need to select the TV input for the S-Video connector - This may be by selecting an Input AV1, AV2, AV3 etc - without the make and model of the TV I cannot say which to select
Here are some instructions on how to use S-Video - it covers a number of laptops including Toshiba http://www.svideo.com/compaq1700.html

Laptop to tv hook up


most modern tvs have vga connector for doing just that look at the back of the tv should be one there. If not then look for what is called a Svideo socket will be a small circle plug with about 5 pins and dont forget to put the tv mode to its respective setting ie P.C or Svideo/ AV1

Pc to tv problem


The most common problem is that the tv dont understand the s-video signal. You can try to change the signal input on the tv to s-video, but it will only work if your tv support's it. I have a s-video to scart but I dont get any collours because my tv can't understand the signal. My solution tip for you are: Get a tv that you are shure can understand the s-video signal.

Multiple monitor problem


1: First check wether your graphics card is able to support 2 monitors. Not all built-in ones can do that.
2: If you re sure it should be able to work, try restarting the pc after you connect the monitor, it should open a popup and ask what you want to do.
3: If not try updating your drivers and repeat step 2.

As for the tv as a monitor, most digital tv's are able to do that, yes.

I hope this helps,

No color


does the tv use Svideo as an input from whatever device you're using on the main screen? if so , try changing out the cable for a new one, svideo carries 2 signals, color and brightness (ie color and black signals) if your cable is bad or broken, you may only be getting one of those signals ( the black one) try a new cable if it's s-video. if it's not, get back to us.
