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.

Looking over the quick specs (http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13065_na/13065_na.pdf) for your laptop, it doesn't appear to have any sort of video out capabilities. Thanks!

Your laptop is causing this, not the TV. Perhaps there is a HDMI function menu on the laptop that you can change to correct this. If not, contact Toshiba directly, they can definitely answer the question.

I want to connect my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6863 Laptop to TV


You have to configure yout laptop to output through the s-video (which does not carry sound, so you need to either use the laptop speakers for sound, or the line output (headphone jack) to the TV).
I don't know if all toshibas are the same, but with mine, if I hold Fn (near the windows key) and press F5, it will change the output, do it a few times until you see a picture on the TV, some settings make this your extended desktop, meaning you can drag a window from one screen to another.
