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.

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.

I would check the video setting on your laptop. The resolution or refresh rate might have been changed and the LCD TV might not be able to process the signal. Try changing the laptop's resolution to the lowest setting(right-click on desktop and pick properties) and see if the TV produces a picture. Also verify the video output on the laptop is working by hooking it up to a computer monitor if available.
