ThinkPad T21 and S-Video Output

Anyone here successful with getting their S-Video output to work to a television.

I purchased the cables from S-video.com to watch video on a tv/projector. I cannot select a "TV" profile under Monitor #2.

Please post any possible solutions. Thanks in advance.

    No success. I just downloaded the latest S3 driver from Lenovo's website, I do not have the option of selecting the 2nd display as a TV.

    I've changed the setting to 800x600, pressing FN-F7 does not work.

    This is frustrating.

The lcd display screen has to be set to 1024x768 60hz refresh rate 1st to be able to send the signal to a tv.
then try the function/monitor on keyboard or boot with it connected.

  1. 1 Determine what kind of inputs your TV has. Many sets have the HDMI, DVI or even VGA inputs common on most newer PCs. If you have an older TV with only an analog signal, you will have to get a video card that supports your TV's connection. To determine what kind you need, take a look at the audio/video inputs on the side of your TV. S-video is circular with a bunch of pins; composite video is yellow; and component video is red, green and blue.
  2. Step 2 Find out what kind of video output you have on your computer by looking at your video card. DVI is pretty standard on most computers manufactured in the last four years. Multimedia PCs will have DVI and HDMI. Of course, if you swapped out your video card to accommodate an older TV, your machine will not have either of these connections any longer, but will instead have the one that matches your TV.
  3. Step 3 Purchase cables to run from the TV to the computer. The video cables you need will have the same name as the type of connection on your TV. (For example, if you have S-video, look for an S-video cable.) Note that you will need a stereo-mini-to-RCA cable for the audio as well. All cables are available at most electronics stores. If you shop online, try MonoPrice.com to save some money. (See the link in Resources.)
  4. Step 4 Connect the cables. No matter what type you have, one end will go in the TV and the other into your computer's port (the video cable in the video card and the audio cable in the audio card). It will be fairly obvious what goes where due to the shape and coloring of the ports. Once both cables are hooked up, make sure the picture and audio on the TV both work. If not, check your connections.

Ibm thinkpad t43 backlight inverter issue


Did you say the the video output flickers on and off when you connect an external monitor to the video output. If the inverter is faulty this would not affect the video output and the external monitor would not flicker but if the external monitor flickers it would point to a video card problem.
