Question about Dell Latitude C600 Notebook

S-video not working with TV

Everything is hooked up alright. The image only appears for a few seconds while booting up then the image disappears. Is there a configuration problem or is the image signal not compatible with the tv input circuit... how can I solve any of these problems?

THX....

I was having the same problem as you before. Follow this and you'll be set. First go to http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/GRAPHICS-BOARD/OTHERS/Dell-Latitude-C600-ATI-Mobility-Graphics-Driver-A03.shtml
download the driver and install it. You will be prompted to reboot. After restarting right click desktop, click properties, select settings, then advanced, then turn on the TV option. Good luck, this work miracles for me.

I know this is a old thread but i was having this problem. Set display to a 800x600, turned overlays off. Used the fn keys, none of it worked for me. laptop had 7 pin s video, tv had 4 pin. what did work was turning hardware acceleration off and restart the computer.

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.

My Samsung tv has sound but no picture what needs to be replaced?


Hi Shawn,
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

My HyVision LCD TV Picture disappears after a few seconds


It seems that the "backlight" has gone bad. "Backlight" is the device that allows to see the picture in an LCD TV, when they are about to go bad the symptom that you describe is very usual. It depends on the tv manufacturers and model to expect how long the "backlight" is going to last in a tv.You can shop around for a replacement part and try to do it yourself or take it to an especialized technician. Good luck..
