Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I am trying to connect my laptop to the Polaroid LCD TV, as i would like to use the TV monitor as a computer monitor (my laptop monitor is broken). So I connect the correct wire to correct places, however there is no VGA signal, only when the computer starts, the TV monitor also shows the first picture - like "Microsoft, windows..." in dark background. however, when the laptop monitor starts to display the desktop with different items, then the TV monitor stops showing anything and just says - "no VGA signal". so how to connect these monitors that the TV could show the PC desktop, etc.?

The simple patch that I found (same problem) was to start by using any old monitor that I could borrow to set up my Dell Laptop.
After getting the Laptop booted on a regular monitor I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties then to the settings tab.
Here I found the dual monitor settings (#2 will usually be dis-abled by default.)
Click on #2 monitor and set the resolution to the lowest number (800 x 600 works well)
Then I clicked on "make this monitor my primary monitor"
As soon as I clicked apply the PC Windows screen appeared on the Polaroid TV screen

Earlier I had set the secondary monitor as "extend this screen to this monitor"
This also worked but I had to "drag the current screen to the right all the way off the
"borrowed monitor" until it appeared on the TV screen. The mouse pointer will be there also.
At first it took a little getting used to but in a few minutes I was up and running.
Hope this helps your situation

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.

I want to hook up my computer to my tv. Is there a plug.


Check your tv for a blue DB15 port. That would a direct connection for your computer. All you need is the monitor connectio cord from your monitor. If you monitor is hard wired you can buy monitor cables at local electronic stores for about 10 dollars.

Use as a computer monitor?


The Polaroid TLX01511C 16" Class (15.4" Diagonal) is capable of receiving audio and video signal in ATSC and NTSC systems. With the host computer, use as the display terminal and connect the 3.5mm (diameter) audio cord to your computer’s audio main board so you can listen to music from your host computer through the Polaroid TLX01511C.
