The VGA cable/connector has 15 pins and the RCA only 2 --- how would you know which to connect where, I know I wouldn't want to guess! Without knowing what it is hooked up to, no way to make it work.

    VGA connectors have 15 pins, RCA connectors have 2 pins. You'd have to know which 2 pins to use, and without this info there's no way it can work.

    The cable that has 3 (white, red, yellow) is usually White = Left, Red = Right, Yellow = Video for the configuration (I think) you are describing. If this is not what you are talking about then let's try again, none of the 3 are putting out RF.

I JUST CONNECTED THE PC TO TV WITH VGA TO RCA CABLE BUT PICTURE WON'T COME ON THE TV SCREEN


Make sure that you have the correct display mode selected. While many connections like a VGA to VGA connection will automatically detect, I don't think a VGA to RCA adapter will. Go to control panel/display and see if your computer has detected the second display.
Also make sure the RGB or RCA is selected as the input source on your TV.
Once these are both set correctly you should be in business!

How do I connect my Laptop Acer 5735 to my TV Sony KDL-40NX700, what kind of connection cables do I require?


If Your TV and Laptop have HDMI Port then you just need a HDMI Cable.
But if you dont have HDMI port. then you need two cables one from video and one for audio.
For Video you either VGA Cable(if you have VGA Port in your TV) or VGA to RCA Cable (Yellow Pin will be for video)
For audio You Need 3.5mm pin to RCA (white and Red for audio).
This pic is of VGA to RCA Cable

Hi, could you tell me how/if i can connect my Acer Aspire 5742 laptop to my televison please, Thanks Alix


Hello,

Hopefully your laptop has a VGA output, if you do not know what that is there is a link below:

http://www.computertroublesolver.com/image-files/laptop-vga-connection.jpg

Now check to see if your tv also has a VGA output most modern tv's do now, if it does buy yourself a VGA cable but with both the same connectors at each end then just plug one side into your laptop then the other into the TV.

if not buy yourself a vga to rca cable which look like this: http://networkcable-tester.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/vga-to-rca-cable2.jpg

hopefully your tv does have an rca output.

here is where you can by a VGA to VGA cable quite cheap: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002N2KY54/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_2?pf_rd_p=103612307&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000WTT0EG&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=1K0C1AGYT9XC9CHTQ1KV
here is a VGA to RCA cable : http://www.amazon.co.uk/1-8M-VGA-LEAD-CABLE-LAPTOP/dp/B000P3NZ68/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1310838406&sr=1-1

Hope this helps.

What cable do I need to connect my Sony vaio VGN FS640 Laptop to my RCA TV and where does this cable connect to, on my laptop? My RCA TV has a SVideo connection.


To output video from your laptop you will need to use VGA out.

What you want to buy is a VGA to S-Video adapter, making sure that both the VGA and S-Video have male connectors.

This solution will not output audio.

Is it possible to connect the emachines E525 with an LG LCD tv if so how?


It is possible to connect your laptop to any LCD TV. For which you need to locate the external VGA port on your laptop. As your Laptop doesn't have S-Video port you would have to deal with the VGA port.
There are several adapters available in the market which can solve your problem:VGA to RCA orVGA to S-Video orDual VGA cable
Your LCD TV should be equipped with all the ports mentioned above that are:RCA (AV)S-VideoVGA In
But as I don't know the model Number of your TV I don't know whether your TV has S-Video or VGA ports but the RCA (AV) are the most common ones which I am pretty sure you would have.
Here are some pics of the cables.
^Dual VGA cable
^VGA to RCA or S-Video
You can buy these cables from the market and easily connect your system to the TV.
If you need further help, please feel free to contact me.

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.

Connect Laptop to TV


It depends on what kind of TV you have. If you have a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, it may have a VGA connection already installed. If that is the case, all you need is a standard VGA cable to connect from your notebook to your TV.

If you have a TV without a VGA connection you will need a scan converter to convert your signal from VGA to RCA or composite video signal. These can be purchased online or from electronics stores like Radio Shack. You plug your VGA connection from the computer to the scan converter, then RCA or composite video cables from the converter to the TV.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
