Hi I'm trying to connect my laptop to play photographs through the TV screen using windows XP. No success at the moment. How do I connect up please? And can i get a manual for the TV anywhere...


For making the physical connection between PC and TV first we need video cable.
PC has S-Video port that should be connect to the S-Video input of your TV using S-Video cable.
Connect the computer to the TV using VGA ports or via the DVI to HDMI cable. These Macs need Adapter for a VGA cable.
RCA for audio, connect RCA to your PC and red and white colored sockets of RCA cable to TV (left audio-white, right audio-red).
In your PC open the Display Settings and activate output to the TV screen.
In your TV open the menu from that open the External inputs. And change the video to HDMI depends on the connection.
You can also change the screen resolution of your TV using the Personalize and Display Settings options in your Control Panel on PC.

After giving the connections you can watch the movies and everything is running on laptop on TV.

L am trying to connect the TV to PC and the screen get black and the power indicator light blinks steadly. What should I do?


Hi lammecksawu
Use a VGA (RGB) cable to connect it to the TV from the computer. If you have a desktop computer, you have this cable already connecting the PC to the Screen. Or you can use the HDMI cable.
Turn the poer off, connect the PC and TV with the cable, then power on
From the TV menu select the appropriate input source
From the PC desktop, select the appropriate resolution.
You should be able to get the computer screen display on the TV pretty easily.
Hope this will help you
If it helped, give a rating
Cheers

Connecting Laptop to LCD


VGA cable doesn't carry any audio: use your audio output from PC into TV audio Input (standard RCA).
You need to configure your Display Properties to manage TV screen to get an effective connection.
Either you have a generic Video Grafic Driver add on (I'm using Intel Graphic accelerator) on your display properties either you are using a specific (NVIDIA) driver for your video card.
To check go to CP/ Display, settings Tab and in advanced you should be able to check your choice (if you don't want to go to user manual.
You can also (in CP/ Display, Settings tab configure TV as a monitor and select your option accordingly: use screen resolution on screen # 2 not over native resolution of your VIZIO screen (1080 x 960?) and be sure to use all the parameters as TV can accept.
As soon as TV is configured as per resolution and refresh etc..
check the presentation function on your PC: it's normally a FN key showing a screen icon on key top (on my Acer travelmate is FN + F5) on aspire may be it's FN + F4.
This function key will circle between: PC mail screen -> External screen (as you configured on Display settings) -> both screen.

Having prob connecting my laptop to a TV via hdmi


try playing around a bit with the display settings, there are not many laptops that are setup to automatically adjust to the dual screen setup with an lcd tv. Also, iv found that Not using the lcd as a duplicate of the main screen is a good idea, set it up as a separate screen...if you know what i mean, if you do it right you will see only yourbackground on the tv and no start menu bar or icons.... In this configuration you can set the resolution to the max for the best quality possible for your television.

Connecting my laptop to my Cello mtv21d flat screen LCD TV


Depending on the laptop, the usual way to do this is to connect the VGA cable to the laptop and the TV. Select the VGA input from the television remote and press FN+F4 to switch the image to the television set.

You need to go into the display settings of your computer once the cable is connected and change it to a dual-monitor setup. I'm going to assume you have windows 98/xp, you can find the display settings in your control panel under the title of "display". it'll be under the last tab of the window called "settings".

Keep it in mind, in reality there are a ton of ways to run two monitors. Chances are the one that your going to find easily is to "extend" your desktop onto your tv, making them both run as one screen. Hopefully that doesn't happen to you (you'll probably find it extremely annoying). Also, some video players wont let you play videos on your TV because their worried that your going to copy the video onto vhs.

The display on your tv will be blurry with s-video, and you wont be able to read text easily (hd-tvs are different if your video card is new enough to use the hd-tvs features, and/or your hd-tv can run computer displays. You can purchase a computer monitor to hd-tv cable online or at computer stores) but videos and pictures will look good. And if you have problems and you accidentally switch your display to the tv and your monitor is off, turn off the computer and unplug the s-video, it should go back to normal although it may happen if you put the s-vid cable back into the pc.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I have lots of experience doing this.

Pc and lcd tv


that's really easy. just plug in a VGA or DVI cord from the PC to the Sova TV (those are both regular cables that normally would go the computer monitor). then press the source button on the remote (not too fast, it takes a second to detect the signal), until you see VGA or DVI, and your computer screen should show up. use the display settings on your computer to get the best resolution on the tv. depending on your computer, you may have a program that can save different screen resolution profiles for you (since the Sova TV resolution and the computer's optimized resolution using a different screen (such as the built in screen on a laptop -- or a different monitor with better resolution than the Sova TV), this way you can easily toggle between settings depending on what monitor you use.
