Hi, When I connect my Samsung RF711 laptop to my Sanyo LCD-42XR9DA TV HDMI to HDMI, and source the HDMI 1 input and press OK I do not get any laptop display on the TV screen at all. I have spoken to both...


I suspect that the TV can't read the signal from the computer on the HDMI port. You would get a signal from a VGA connection. (Computers send a slightly different signal over HDMI than a DVD or blu-ray player.)

In general, when connecting a TV to a computer, turn off both devices before connecting the video cables. Then turn on the TV and set it to the source (with the no signal message). Then turn on the computer. Next set the computer to output the video on the external video port. (Depending on the laptop, you may need to enable the port in the BIOS. To access the BIOS, press Esc, F1, F2 or F10 repeatedly as you turn on the computer. The key depends on the brand of computer.) Next set the video output in the OS (depends on the OS). For Windows 7, right click on the desktop (anywhere there are no icons or running programs), select Graphics Properties and set the desired monitor choice (laptop monitor, external monitor, both or extended). Click Apply and then confirm this when the display changes. (At least this works for my HP laptop on the VGA port.; my desktop lets me change monitors under Screen Resolution.)

The manual for the TV is available here: http://www.sanyo.com.au/resources/manuals/tvs/lcd42xr9da_im.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

Does the acer 5315 have a separate video card for running the monitor?


Find the "serial-number" of your ACER notebook.

Access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://secure3.tx.acer.com/FindSystem/FindSystem.aspx?title=Information%20About%20Your%20System

and enter the serial-number, to find the complete specifications for your specific unit.

I have an IBM T40 Laptop and I wanted to display my video to the television screen via the SV output. When I hook everything up, all I see on the television is the Windows Desktop background, no icons etc....


You set it to Multiple Monitors (if you move the mouse, you will probably be able to see it on the TV once it "goes out" of the laptop desktop). You need to change output mode to external S-Video.

First of all try hitting Fn + F7 key to switch to Ext-S-Video. If it works, that's it, of course. If it doesn't, TV output is not enabled.

Right-click on the desktop to bring up the Properties, go to Settings. You'll see two monitor images there, 1 and 2.

Click Advanced, then go to Displays. You'll get CRT, TV and LCD. Turn on the TV button and tune your settings.

At this point, the hotkey Fn + F7 is enabled to cycle between LCD and TV.

If it still doesn't work and you see the blank desktop, go again in Display Properties, choose LCD as Primary Display, select Secondary, and verify that "Extend desktop on this display" is NOT checked.

No Signal on DVD to Samsung 2333HD Monitor/TV


I had the same problem connecting the monitor to my Philips DVD player. After a couple days trying to determine if the monitor or cable was bad, I went to the Philips user manual and found that the Video Output setting had to be specifically changed to YPbPr/Component (which I needed). Apparently the player sends the signal in only one format at a time. Hope this helps.

S-video output not working


I think your problem is because the monitor is not activated. Right click desktop, click properties, click settings. Drag the gray scaled monitor on top of the black monitor and click ok and it should send the signal to the external monitor. try draging the mouse over to it because by default the external screen will be black.

Hope this helps!

Using s video output


Hi,

Two things you can try:
1. You need to Activate your TV OUT feature in the Monitor setting of your display properties and select Clone so as to mirror what you see in your laptop's display in your TV. As you posted, the S cable must already be inserted before powering up your laptop; and/or

2. You may need to lower your laptops screen resolution. Most but not all TV units have lower resolution capacity than monitors. Perhaps try with the lowest possible setting (800X600) and when it shows on your TV, slowly increase till it blanks out again. pressing escape would revert you back to last setting that worked. Additionally you may need to lower likewise your laptop's Color Quality setting and/or the Screen Refresh rate.

Hope that this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The screen will not turn on


Yes these Monitors encounter problems:
1. Bad Inverter
2. Burned out Backlight
3. Power supply issues
Sounds like your inverter board is bad and backlight will probably follow!
