    i'm trying to hook up my Samsung HDTV LN-T3253, to my

    SONY VAIO Model VGN-SZ230P, with WinXP Pro, and Nvidia Card.

    I've read the Samsung manual, went to Samsung website, followed the "How to" instructions.



    Nothing is working.

    I'm using a VGA connection to and from, I have toggled the FN/F7 key, and when i go to Source, the 'PC" option is still grayed out.

    Can someone help?

My acer laptop screen has broke and i would like to know if its possible to connect it up to my 42" samsung plasma ?


Most laptops have a 15pin D-sub connection that allows you to attach an external display. Most LCD and plasma TV's also have a 15pin D-sub connector to connect a PC to.

Look on the side of your laptop and the back of your TV for this connector and if both have it just find a standard monitor cable to connect them.

Your laptop will have a function key to enable or disable the external display.

My dvd player is hooked up to t.v. but only plays movies in black/white


How is the DVD player connected to the TV? If you are using component video, check that the cables are connected correctly.

If you switch the order on two of the cables, the black and white result is common. So double-check that the red, blue and green connections (RPbPy) have been connected to both devices in the same order. Next try a different set of component video cables, in case one of the wires is damaged.

If possible, try a different type of connection to rule out a damaged input/output. Connect the TV to a different DVD player or the DVD player to another TV, if possible, to rule out similar damage.

Please add a comment with the connection type for additional support. I hope this helps.

Normally all one has to do is use a 15pin VGA lead to connect the laptop to the TV socket, select PC on the TV and that should be that. There may be problems if your laptop in a MAC and if the resolutions do not match.

Probably the Controller unit for the TV. Try hooking it up through a different connection type e.g. HDMI, component. See if that fixes the issue for the time being. If it dies then those ports you used previously are malfunctioning.

My dvd player only plays movies in black and white. When I watch tv, it's in color so I know its not the tv.


Hi,

I suspect you may have connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.

COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded red, green, and blue. COMPOSITE only uses one RCA type video cable - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded yellow.
If you connect the yellow video cable to one of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.

If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check your connections. Make sure you have not connected to any sockets - either on the TV or the back of the DVD player - under the heading of "COMPONENT" - or individually marked "Pr", "Cr", "Pb", "Cb" or "Y".


If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV and the DVD player. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

Can't connect my emachineT3638 to 50" plasma PN50B530S2F


the problem is the tv is not getting a signal start. all devices in #digital give a signal to say what they are and the right format to display, some devices don't send the signal if its not the right setting, if you are trying to send an analog signal to a digital socket it will not work . and vice versa.

Lead from external harddrive to tv- to show films,--usb connection from harddrive to 15pin to tv


Dear ragalgey,
As far As I can remember, most TV design to receive the signal to watch whatever you want limited to available TV station in your local broadcaster.
If you think you connect your harddrive to TV USB or 15pin (VGA cable) then you can watch the movie file from harddrive is a totally wrong!
You need a drive or a player for those file that capable to configure your TV to play them. Or at least you need a PC or Laptop Computer that played your harddrive then send the images/video via Video Out Jack (Yellow) from your laptop, or connect the 15pin VGA jack from Laptop PC out then plug in to your TV. In this case you'll need the Jack/adapter to convert from 15pin VGA from laptop to available Video jack on your TV.
Good Luck!

Best Regards,

How to connect samsung pasma tv to pc?model number is PS42B450B1XUM


Hello,

That does depend on the PC, but I'll assume it's a pretty standard PC.

You ideally need a Male 15Pin VGA cable to Male 15Pin VGA cable. (aka A normal Monitor Cable) The same as you probably have connected between your PC and Monitor.

Your TV has a 15Pin VGA Female socket on the back, this cable plugs into here.

For Sound the TV has what looks like a headphone socket next to the VGA Plug. You need to use a Stereo Jack Plug to Stereo Jack Plug Cable. 3.5mm. This goes from your PC's Audio Line Out (rear of the PC) to the Plug on the rear of the TV. It is usually marked Aux In or PC Sound.

Enjoy, The PC will look great on the Tv.
