I will try to help you, based on what I do with my own Panasonic 50" television. First step is to locate the S-Video output connector on your Lenovo; plug an S-Video cable into this connector. Locate one of the several S-Video inputs located on the back, side and/or front of your television, select the chosen input source (usually Video 1, Video 2, maybe Video 3.
Once this input is selected, your computer should be showing the video on the television, and you should be good to go. The television ought to be able to display the computer's signal, but if not you can try to reset the Display Resolution to something like 1024x768 or even 800x600. This answers your question!

    Could you tell me what I did to rate one thumbs-up? Was the information I gave wrong? What happened? Like I said, what I told you was based on my own Plasma television and may or may not be appropriate for you.

How do I hook-up Netflix through a Sony Blu-Ray player and a LG television


If your Sony Blu-Ray player and LG TV are recent models, each should have an HDMI cable connection. HDMI is an method to connect your digital video and audio devices with just a single combined cable. In the case of your LG TV, using an HDMI cable will allow you to send the HD video signal to your TV's screen, and allow you to hear the sound through the TV's speakers.
Your LG TV may have multiple HDMI connectors, to allow other devices to send signals to your TV, such as a cable box or satellite box or digital video recorder (DVR). Your Sony Blu-Ray player will usually have just a single HDMI connector.
Purchase an HDMI cable from your local electronics store. There are different versions of the HDMI specification, and you should get a cable that you can verify is certified for the HDMI version 1.4 specification.
Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the Blu-Ray player, and the other end into one of the HDMI connectors on the TV, noting which one you selected.
When you turn on your Sony Blu-Ray and your LG TV, you should use the remote for the LG TV to select the input source. Your LG remote should allow you to select the HDMI input connector you used, at which point you should see the display of a DVD playing on the Blu-Ray player. If you cannot hear the sound, use the LG remote to increase the TV volume.

What kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?


Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

(A DVI port is a digital video out option with ~21 pins and is usually white.)

My tv says " mode


This means that your TV is receiving a video signal that can't handle, in example, the video source is sending a 1080i video signal and maybe your TV only supports 480p signals, to fix this you'll have to adjust the video source resolution according to the one that your TV can handle, please check the technical specifications of TV in the user guide.

I bought a component cable so i could hook my laptop to my tv so i can watch movies from my laptop through my tv and i cant figure out how make it work


I'm assuming that your laptop doesn't have component-video outputs, and you bought some kind of adapter cable?

I think that you may just need to tell your laptop where to send the video signal. The default is obviously the built-in screen, but most laptops can also send the video signal to both it's own screen AND the external output; or to the external output only. You usually have to type a combination of keys on your keyboard to switch through the modes.

For example: on my laptop you hold down the FUNC key and then press the F10 key (which also has a screen symbol on it). Check your laptop manual for that.

Some TV's can only accept video output from a computer at a certain resolution (like 1024 x 768). Check your TV manual, but you may have to adjust your laptops resolution.

Finally, since the video signal is not coming from cable or DVD, you will probably have to switch the video input on your TV, so that it knows where to get it's video signal from. This is usually as easy as pressing an INPUT button on your TV remote until you hit the right input, but check your TV manual.

My gateway t-6330u hdmi cannot connect. It shows the the external monitor is connected but my TV set shows no signal. and it worked perfect couple month ago


Here is something you may or may not have tried:
With the HDMI cable hooked up to your TV set, reboot your computer. in many cases (even though it may be shown as hooked up) the video card will not send a signal on a specific output unless there is something plugged into it on bootup. Once that has been done, verify that you are on the proper HDMI setting on your TV. Many TVs have multiple HDMI inputs, so it is possible that there is a signal and it's not switched to it.

Sometimes its about going to the basics.

What do I need to hook it up to an hdtv...what type of cables..DVI-D to HDMI?


Your laptop will need a HDMI output or a DVI output for HD video. If your laptop only has a VGA out the your tv will need a VGA or DVI input. You could use a vga to dvi adapter if your tv does not have a vga connector. They do have a DVI to HDMI adapter but there are a couple of problems with that. One you will not get the sound and the TV will only obtain sound from HDMI cable when connected that way and Two the TV will have problems processing the signal from the computer due to the HDMI will only process the HD signals at certain formats and the computer video can send out many different signals. I tried and I could not get my tv to process the signal so I got a video card that has a HDMI out and my blu-ray player works great.

How do send monitor signal to my tv


It depend on what input your TV has the what output the laptop has.
Ideally you would connect over VGA cable. Your Laptop is very likly to have a VGA out put but if your TV is old it may not have a VGA input.

If not you will need to connect Via S-Video cable which all TV's & laptops have. Note that neither VGA or S-Video will carry audio so you will need a seperate audio cable if you want the sound to come through the TV speakers. This is normall just a wire with mini stereo jack on each end.

Olevia 232T and S-Video


Are you sure you actually have an S-video input on that TV. The specifications I find don't show one. (http://www.olevia.com/en-us/Products/2Series/232TLCDHDTV.aspx#2
If you do, you might have to select video on your remote in order to see the input. If you have the instructions for the tv, look at those.
Otherwise, try downloading your users guide for the laptop and see where it points you

Connecting computer to tv


If your computer has an S-video jack, (and if your tv has one)then all you need is the cable. If not, you need some sort of pc to tv converter, which run a wide range of prices, depending on if your tv has s video or not.
