How to connect a eye trek fmd 200 to my laptop

Hi

I bought an eye trek fmd 200 from olympus
Which comes with the 3 colours rca cables


I m trying to connect it to my laptop dell inspiron 8100

So I got 2 adaptors

one for the video using a “7 pin” adaptor (7 pin output, jack for the input)
Because my dell has a 7 pin output which I usually use to connect to my TV (successfully)

and one adaptor for the sound (1 output, 2 inputs for red and white cables)


Now somehow when I plug everything and turns the eye trek on
It still says no video input

Even when I go the pc configurations and enter 2 screens

Why is that and what do I need to do or get for it in order to work?

Thank you

It is not possible to connect your eye-trek directly to your computer.
you need a signal-converter (vga to av).
Have a look on ebay (e.g. this one on german ebay: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=380041599591
description is english).

Only the much more expensive fmd 700 has a built-in converter.

V LCD Monitor D19W12 how do I adjust color - it is all PINK?


Make sure that the "data" cable between the computer and the monitor is tightly-connected at both ends.

Try a different "data" cable.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer (laptop or desktop).
Note that 'WHITE' is generated by mixing all 3 "primary" colours.
If the video-card on your computer is not generating all 3 colours, then 'PINK' could be the result from mixing the remaining 2 "primary" colours.

I have an HP L2208w monitor which has been ok for the last two years. Suddenly, it started to display patches of different colours. Also vertical and horizontal colours appear across some pf these patches....


hi steven_katas

Im thinking that this maybe a LCD panel problem (dead pixels) already. some LCD panels last for 2-3 years depending on usage. even if you haven't dropped it or anything the LCD panel's pixels ten to give way slowly or die down since these pixels are like bulbs. here's what you can do. Try connecting a different cable from your monitor to your computer if the issue is still the same, try connecting a different computer or maybe a laptop to your monitor just to eliminate the probability that it can be a cable or a video card problem.
If you have already connected a new computer say a laptop and it is still the same it might already be a hardware problem with your monitor and might need you to bring it to the service center for repair.

Hope this helps please let me know

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

Monitor changed to yellow colour.... what is the problem...?


Monitors mix the 3 "primary" colours, in various proportions, to produce all other colours.

Mix equal parts of all 3 colours, and you get WHITE.
Mix equal parts of only 2 colours, and you get YELLOW.

So, either:
1. your computer's video-card is not sending the 3rd colour;
2. your video-cable between the computer and the monitor is broken, and is not transmitting the 3rd colour;
3. your video-cable is not TIGHTLY connected at each end;
4. the electronics inside the monitor that SHOULD be producing the 3rd colour have failed.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, with the same video-cable. If it works correctly, your video-card is the problem.

Try connecting the monitor with a different video-cable, to see if replacing the cable fixes the problem.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, with a different video-cable. If it still is incorrect, then the monitor needs repair/replacement.

My screen just turned yellow for no reason. I tried restarting, shutting down, and system restore but it is still yellow


Screen-colours are "additive" -- mix just 2 of the 3 primary colours, and you could get "yellow" -- mix all 3 or the primary colours, and you will get "white".

In order of "easy" and "cheap" to "difficult" and "expensive":

Check that the "data" cable is tightly connected at both ends,
so that all 3 colours are being transmitted from your computer.

Try a different "data" cable between the computer and the LCD.

Try connecting the LCD to a different computer (laptop or desktop).

Try adding a different video-adapter into your computer.

Need to connect my DSTV decoder through my sony amplifier (5.1) not sure of a the cabling or the connections, does someone perhaps ahve a wiring diagram to connect TV, dstv decoder and sony 5.1 amplifier?...


well this is easier than you think, get yourself a set of RCA's (the red and white and yellow cables that DVD players come with) look behind your decoder and place them colour to colour, then behind your Amp you will read (TV IN) do the same, then with just one yellow RCA plug it into (monitor) that one will then go to the (AV input) behind your TV.. And presto!!! now set your amp input on the remote to TV and your off!! good luck

Check the cable to the back of the LCD and also where the cable connects to the motherboard on your laptop. These can come loose over time from the lid being opened and closed and will cause the fault you describe.
If the cable has moved out of the back of the panel itself, then apply a small amount of tape to hold it in place once pushed back in where it should be.
CAUTION NOTE:
These screens are fragile. Take extreme care when inside.
