There is a needed interface for the tv. the video signal your laptop generates is not compatible with the input circuits of the tv.

Install the video drivers for your version of Windows from Dell's web site:

Then you may have to enable the s-video out - there should be something in the manual - you may even just have to hit the hotkey for switching to external monitor (Fn-F5 i think)

Then you should have it working

Cant get dell c600 svideo to stay on tv screen after initial startup

When you have it hooked up go into the screen resolution settings and make your tv a extra monitor. You can either have it the same as your laptop screen or a extra one. You have to enable the tv first thats probably why its shutting off. If i helped please leave me a rating. If you still need help leave me another comment.

Olevia 232T and S-Video

Are you sure you actually have an S-video input on that TV. The specifications I find don't show one. (
If you do, you might have to select video on your remote in order to see the input. If you have the instructions for the tv, look at those.
Otherwise, try downloading your users guide for the laptop and see where it points you

S-video not working with TV

Look at your Function keys. It will be either F3, or F5 depending on model. Just look for the key with the picture of a little monitor on it. Some models use 2 different keys to go back and forth between outputs. These keys toggle the video between the laptops LCD and an external monitor.

Hold down the "FN" key (located on the lower left of the keyboard), while tapping the above mentioned Function key.
