LCD TV and VGA output

I have an Element FLX-3202 32" LCD TV. I can get the VGA cable connection to work with my old (Dell Inspiron 4100) laptop, but not the newer laptops that we have. When I try the newer computers,the screen flickers and tries to connect, and at one point (with myMacbook) it said "not compatible." All I get is ablue screen and "no input" up in the corner. I triedfiddling with the resolution settings on the newer windows laptop, butnothing. I'm not finding much on-line because it's such a little-knownbrand. Any suggestions?

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop and tried connecting to my Panasonic TV using VGA cable, since the laptop doesnt have got an S-video port. The TV starts flickering everytime I connect my laptop. I tried all the resolution and refresh rate properties in laptop.
I connected successfully another laptop (HP) using S-video and it worked fine.
Please let me know if the problem is with my sony Laptop or the VGA cable. How can I make it work using the VGA cable?

The resolution and refresh rates have to match exactly to the TV for it to work correctly with the computer.

The newer computers are using much faster refresh rates by default. Their default resolution is also different.

Consult the manual for the TV and see if the computer's external monitor output can be set to match to what the TV exactly requires. Both the refresh rate and resolution are critical.

Connecting computer to Element flx-3211b via HDMI not working

Trying to connect our element flx2210 to a computer through a VGA cord. When plugged in and on the vga input the tv screen says not support. would the computer be too old for the tv?


Sorry that I can't give you an actual solution, but I've been checking up on this TV all night. 90% of the upset people are that way because they either didn't turn off everthing before messing with plugs, or used an incompatible VGA cable (even though I've never heard of one of those. Be careful back there, Element charges $250 for repairs before they even know what the problem is....

Hi, I have bought LG LCD ld310 . Can I connect my computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable Thanks Jatinder Kumar


Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

No VGA signal from my Lenovo laptop to the tv


Most notebook computers can be "toggled":

* video-output only to LCD screen
* video-output only to external VGA
* video-output to both device

Be sure that you toggle to select the 2nd or 3rd of the above settings.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.
