Hi,

Assuming that you have hooked it correctly using the correct VGA cable,there is power to the LCD TV and the laptop is running and can be seen on its own LCD display, then there could be two possible reasons:

1. you need to press Fn + F? key (once or a couple of times. Fn would be whatever is needed for your laptop to activate its external video output). To be able to determine what the F? key is, you need to post back your laptop brand and model; or

2. Perhaps what might be causing no display in the TV is that the video signal it is receiving is beyond its capability. To correct this, pls:
2.1. lower screen resolution of your laptop's properties.
2.2. it may also be of help if you likewise lower the screen refresh rate.
Both of the above may be adjusted through the appropriate settings in your Display Properties.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

VGA-HDMI connection fail on Acer projector using adapter


You don't say whether or not the "adapter" is simply a gender-changer, or if it actually converts the digital signal from the HDMI port to an analog one for the VGA port. Some monitors have both analog and digital input capability and can automatically adapt to the the digital signal, even if applied to the VGA (analog) port. Other devices are not so smart and need an actual digital-to-analog converter style adapter.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

When we turned on the tv it says no signal vga input? It is a polaroid Flat Screen hdtv.


This might sound like a silly question but is the VGA input the one you wish to use?
If you are trying to use the VGA input what do you have it connected too?
A) Laptop 2nd VGA output.
B) Desktop VGA output.
NOTE: If you trying to connect it to a laptop you may have to engage your 2nd VGA output by depressing the 'Function Key' and either F4 or Some times it's the F8 key at the same time.

I am trying to connect my acer PC to a tv but get


The inputs on a TV are normally via the ariel and go into a pre-amp

To get a signal in you, would again, normally connect to the RGB or Video in which bypasses the pre-amp.

The VGA cable will be outputting a digital signal which a monitor will understand but a TV will not as it prime supply is via an analog signal

You may be able to get a connection if you process the signal through a freeview box which changes the signal from analog to digital

VGA CONNECTION


You are trying to run a VGA signal to your television? Usually you need a scan converter to do that so the signals will match. Does your laptop have S-Video out? That would be the ideal method.
