Every laptop has at least a VGA (computer video connection) and s-video cable port. A VGA cable is preferred if you want to be able to read text on your LCD TV. Check to make sure that your LCD TV has a VGA connector. It's a port that accepts a 15-pin connection so it's pretty easy to spot if it's there. It's just like a computer monitor cable if that helps. Should be able to find it at any local retail store that carries computers. VGA or RGB cable.

I have a toshiba satellite p755, it use to be able to hook up to my HD TV with the HDMI chord but now its not connecting..whats the problem?


Make sure all connections Power ,HDMI and any other connecting leads have secure dust free connections also check each lead for any kinks / bends .
Connecting a Toshiba Satellite Laptop to a TV is an ideal way to enjoy videos, photos and other media on the laptop on a much larger screen.
Satellite Laptops can be connected to TVs using VGA, S-Video and even HDMI, though the TV has to have compatible inputs as well.

Connect the RGB cable or S-video cable to an open input on the TV.
Depending on the type of TV, it may or may not have a RGB input.
S-video may have to be used instead.
Connect the 1/4 inch to RCA Y-cable into the TV using the same input as the VGA or S-video cable.
Connect the other end of the VGA or S-video cable and the audio cable into the laptop.
The video ports are on the sides of the laptop.
The audio cable should go into the headphone jack of the laptop.

How can i connect my Toshiba Satellite PRO A120 to LG TV 42 ins HDMI port


I looked up the technical specs on your laptop and it does not appear to have a HDMI port. See below. It does have a VGA port. Several TVs have VGA in. You could try to connect your laptop to the TV with a monitor cable. It would function similar to a projector and you could use your TV as an additional screen or mirror your main screen.

Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 white screen on stat up


Don't assume. Diagnose.

Problem could be graphics chipset, Video Cable, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Graphics chipset:

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.
(Back of laptop - Blue)

Example of a VGA Cable, and a VGA connector, (Port on laptop),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If you have a CRT type of monitor (Looks like a small TV), you can use it, or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

The Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook PC, also has a DVI connector on the back of the laptop. (Next to the blue VGA port)
You can connect a flat LCD screen monitor with a DVI cable.

Example of a DVI Cable, and DVI connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default the display should be on the external monitor.

If not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, (Bottom left), and tap once on the F5 key.
The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

You will see a list. It 'hot cycles' through the list, until you come to the external monitor device you are using.

External monitor display shows no white screen?
Your graphics chipset is good.
Go on with the diagnoses.

Problem is with the Video Cable, or in the Display Assembly.
(Screen Inverter or LCD screen)

Video Cable:
The Video Cable attaches to the motherboard under the Switch Cover, and about at the F2 and F3 keys.
It then routes under the left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.

From there it connects to the screen Inverter, and back of LCD screen,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p105/big/toshiba-satellite-p105-11.jpg


From;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p105/take-apart-1.htm

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-P105-P100/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-1.htm

Due to normal opening, and closing of the laptop, the Video Cable may become pinched, and pulled on.
This can lead to a simple loose connection of the Video Cable TO the motherboard, or TO the back of the LCD screen.

(The screen Inverter connection should also be checked)

Visual inspection will NOT do. You need to physically see if you can plug the motherboard connection, and LCD screen connection in.
It could be just loose enough you won't be able to see it, but will affect the display.

Sheath of Video Cable needs to be visually inspected for signs of damage. Signs of damage to the sheath, may also mean damage to the tiny wires inside the sheath of the Video Cable.
(Stretched/Broken)

Assurance that the Video Cable is not the problem, means checking out, or have checked out, with a multimeter set to OHM's, to run a continuity check of all the wires.
('Mom and Pop' computer store. See if they will check it)

Or simply replace the Video Cable. (After you fire up the laptop, and see if loose connections was, or was not the problem)

http://www.batterysupport.com/toshiba-satellite-p105-s9722-cable-p-377633.html


(Left side connects to LCD screen. Right/Top connector goes to motherboard. Right/Bottom connector goes to screen Inverter)

Video Cable checks out OK?
Go on to screen Inverter.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOSHIBA-Satellite-P105-S9722-laptop-lcd-Screen-Inverter-/250759700669


The plastic thin frame in front of the LCD screen, is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is behind the Display Bezel, and mounted at a location towards the bottom of the LCD screen frame.

A screen Inverter is tested with a sensitive multimeter. Read fairly expensive,

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

It is for this reason that those who do not have access to a sensitive multimeter, usually just replace the screen Inverter.
(Also low cost, and ease of access to replace)

Screen Inverter checks out OK?
Problem is the LCD screen,

[ Bet it's the video cable, or screen Inverter, that is the problem ]

[ Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

The Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook PC, uses One CCFL for a Backlight.

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height,

General example,

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/09/replace-laptop-backlight-ccfl-lamp/

A CCFL contains -> Mercury, just like Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses.

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.
90 Percent of the Time the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Primer over.

Hey iJust bought a 42 inch Phillips lcd tv And i am trying to attatch my lToshiba E100 Satllite lap top to it via the HDMI ports on both the tv and laptop but nothing is happening


When you have the tv connected and both on, Switch the TV to the HDMI feed then press the [FN] key and hold and start pressing the [F4] key counting to 10 between presses. You have to tell the computer bios to activate the external port and send video signal to that port.

I want to connect my new toshiba laptop to my xbox 360. i do not want to use the wireless option. what type of cable do i need to achieve this? i have windows 7. my ultimate goal is to get windows media...


Both devices are "DTE" (Data Terminating Equipment).
So, you'll need a "crossover" Ethernet cable, to turn one 'DTE' into one 'DCE' (Data Concentrator Equipment). But, that is not a "complete" solution.

You could buy an external TV-adapter, and connect it to a USB port on your computer, and connect that adapter to a TV coax cable, and watch TV on your laptop's screen.

Then, connect the VGA-output from your PC to the VGA-input on your TV, and you can push the TV-image from your PC to your LCD TV.

Since you are using a laptop to connect to an extended monitor, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that both the laptop and TV are on.
  2. Connect the VGA cable from the laptop to the TV.
  3. Then hold down the FN key and the function key with the TV/Monitor icon like the one below to switch to dual monitor display mode.

I am not able to connect to the tv by my toshia satellite pro m200, through the av cable....


What is it you are receiving when you connected? No signal?
You may need to setup your Computer to TV mode. Or even TV you may need to setup INPUT or anyother connections that required.
For example: I have sony Monitor/LCD but also works as TV it is Plazma. Has got connection with INPUT VGA S-VIDEO. I use Svideo for video connection and I use INPUT connection to Computer where I take cable tv channels.You need to see If your computer support for TV if does, make sure if You need docking station or not. My suggestion go to toshiba page and read user guide and reqs. for TV connection. probably your are missing something.

LCD Screen turned opaque at two places, I see two white opaque lines 3 inches wide one on left side of screen and other in the middle


Yes you are correct. I would say 95% of the time, you will need a LCD screen replacement. Also be sure to disconnect and reconnect the lcd cables, at the motherboard and behind the lcd itself, just to make sure the cables aren't making bad connection.
I have provided you a link to MANY lcd screen for your laptop on EBAY.
