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 laptop screen is bright. Brightness control works but no picture. The picture is ok on external monitor. Sometimes a faint and incomplete picture appears on startup but disappears after a few seconds....


This might be a sign of a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Dell Latituse D600 display goes dark


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is faulty or bad, since it goes black after few seconds, it means the picture board of your laptop has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the laptop to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself. in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

My screen is dark, appears like no back light, but everything else still works fine. can faintly see screen


Hello
If you can faintly see the screen I would guess the back lights are like you said....not working.
Can you hook up a external monitor or TV so you can still use it and get your files in order. or until you choose to get it fixed. I would get a couple of estimates first
I also found this video if you want to replace the back light inverter yourself.

My screen is broken and i want to connect it to y t.v is a compaq lab top i connected d cable but my t.v says no video signal


Did you connect a VGA or S-Video cable?

Have you tried pressing the Function key (Fn) and the F4 key together? Give it a few seconds and the image should appear on your TV. On some models, it could be Fn + F7. Look for an icon on the F key of a monitor, TV, something that resembles the idea of your laptop connecting to a TV or monitor.

If that doesn't work, the resolution on the laptop may be higher than what the TV can handle. Try booting the laptop in safe mode if that's the case, and it should go to a low resolution.

Screen Black can barely see images when boot up


well seems like the lcd has lost or the video card has an issue easy way to find out is to hook it up to a monitor and if the pitcure comes out fine then its your lcd screen and if it appears the same then its your video card.

Black Screen


try hooking up an external video source. Check to see if the computer is actually booting up. if the computer boots up, then the LCD invertor or Backlight of the screen is bad, need to be replaced.

If the computer does not boot up after hooking up an external video source, then most likely your motherboard is bad!


need to be replaced.

Trying to connect Inspiron 6000 to TV



If there is no display on your TV, HDTV, or Projector, please make sure that all of your connections are set up properly and that you have enabled the display in the Catalyst Control Center. The connectors that you will be using would be Svideo for TVOUT, DVI-to-HDTV (Component video), VGA-to-HDTV (Component video) for HDTV, and DVI, VGA, or Svideo for the projector.
737-22474-1.jpg Here are the steps to properly setup and enable TV, HDTV, or Projector:
  • Turn off your PC and your TV, HDTV, or Projector.
  • Ensure that your card was installed correctly, as per the Getting Started Guide.
  • Determine if your TV, HDTV, or Projector has a S-Video (for TV), YPbPr for (HDTV), or VGA/DVI for Projector.
  • Looking at the back of your PC, locate the needed connector or the supplied adapter cable; attach one end of the cable to your graphics card and the other to your second display.
  • Turn on your second display then your PC.
If you are connecting an HDTV to your video card, please Click here for detailed instructions on how to set it up correctly.
Starting Windows with TV or Projector Display Enabled The TV screen may become scrambled during the initial Windows® logo display. This is only a temporary effect and your screen will be restored within a few seconds. During start up, your RADEON will go through a sequence of mode settings, during which your TV display will remain blank. This process takes only a few seconds and helps program the TV display.
  • To enable the second Display
  • Right-click anywhere on your desktop
  • Click Catalyst Control center
  • View
  • Advanced view
  • Display manager
  • Detect Displays
  • You should have the second display picture under “Attached displays currently disabled
  • Drag it to the box on top of it
  • Apply
  • OK
If for any reason the second display does not get detected, please do the following:
  • Open the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER
  • Go to Display options
  • Check “Force TV detection” *
  • Apply
  • OK
* Force TV: Allows you to force TV detection if the ATI driver does not automatically detect TV-out connected to the graphics accelerator.
Possible issues:
In case the users display does not natively support HDTV display timings in the EDID, you can add standard HDTV modes so that the usual HDTV resolutions (720p, 1080i, 1080p) are listed in the Display Manager resolutions. You can also create custom HDTV timings to solve any kind of over-scan options (for cases when the windows desktop appears to not fit on the HDTV screen, and the outside boarder is cut off).
For more information on connecting your second display to your Video card, including supported output device combinations, please refer to your user’s manual.
