Can i hook my computer to tv ?


Hello

You can connect your Sylvania LC320ss8 to a computer. There is a socket at the back of your TV to connect it with a PC via VGA cable. One end of that cable must be connected to TV, and the other end of the VGA cable must be connected to PC's monitor out jack.. You have to purchase on VGA cable for this purpose, and is available at most of the electronic spare part shops. A "mini-plug audio cable" also is needed to connect the audio from PC to TV. Its one end to be connected to PCs Audio Line Out jack and its other end to TVs PC in audio jack. Both Jacks can be located at the back side of the TV. After connecting it select the TV to receive PC signals according to its manual says. OK.

I cant find the av jacks to hook up my dvd player


This model doesn't have any A/V jacks. Many low-end RCA models didn't include any special features. They can only pick up signals over the antenna input. What you'll need to connect your DVD player is an RF converter, which takes the audio and video signals from the player and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 TV signal that the set can pick up.

RF converters aren't hard to find. Radio Shack, Sears and Wal-Mart all say they sell them, and you can certainly find them online. Hooking one up is just a matter of connecting the necessary cable to the player and TV, connecting the converter power and setting the output channel. Then put the TV on that channel and you're set. Unfortunately, this will give you lower picture and sound quality than you get from a TV that allows direct A/V inputs, but it's the only option.

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.

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

I have an acer aspire 5100 laptop i need to hook up to my tv for a presentation tomorrow. there is no s-video output on it,. how do I hook it up to my tv?


If your TV has RCA jacks on the back or front. Input type. Then you can go to radio shack and get a vga cable to RCA jack converter. That is all you can do. Is the TV a flat screen if yes then you can hook up you pc with a monitor cable like your usine now in your house. Find out the type of TV.. Ask someone to check the tv for a computer port on the back.

I am trying to hook up my tv with a vga to av(rca) cable,but I can't get it to work.What do I have to do to get it to work?


If your notebook has RCA composite video out, you need to hook it up to TV composite video input jack, usually the color of this RCA jack will be yellow. Why do you not use the VGA port on the back of the note book to feed the signal into the TV's VGA connector, just mke sure to set the resolution of the laptop to be at TV native resolution.

Hook up a Sony VGC RA 840G desktop to a Samsung 46 inch TV


Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!
