    Ours did this at first, but we unhooked everything, found out we had a lose connection. Reconnected everything and now it works great except, after watching for about 20 min the laptop goes blank (even though there is no screensaver on) and you have to shake the mouse then it comes back. We have a vizio tv as well and a dell laptop

Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

Ibm thinkpad wont connect to LG TV


Lower the screen resolution to 720 dpi.

Another issue is the reference to RGB. Is it the 3 cable (YPBPR) or the standard 15 pin VGA? You may need a converter.

Where to connect my pen drive in my sony bravia lcd klv32s400a?


Hi Radhika,

Your TV has USB port on back side. Just plug your pendrive there. Then go menu on TV ( use your remote commander) and go to this input. Your TV will read the file on pendrive accordingly.

Are you able to use the VIZIO 47" Class 1080p 480Hz SPS LED Backlit LCD HDTV as a computer monitor and use a wireless keyboard and mouse to browse on a pc through rgb and speaker jack?


Hi there,

Yes, all new TV's of 1080p specification will have a dedicated PC connection (and should have either a 3.5mm audio socket or 2 x RCA inputs for audio).

The most common way is to use a VGA lead (with 3.5mm audio lead) - VGA out of pc to VGA in of TV. 3.5mm audio output of pc (ie headphone socket) to 3.5mm audio input of TV.

You will just require the correct VGA lead long enough to connect to your pc.

The wireless keyboard and mouse will need to be connected to your pc, and must be within "line of sight" to the wireless receiver.

If you specifically want to use pc output to RGB input (and RCA audio in) of your TV, then you will need to obtain a long VGA to RGB conversion cable, plus 3.5mm audio lead. Have a look on Ebay for a coversion cable.

NEED INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP WIRELESS HEADPHONES FOR VIZIO TV


From the manual:

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio
source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source
has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the
supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and
white) RCA jacks.
2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN
socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter.
3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then,
connect the adapter to an electrical outlet.
Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position.

How i am connect Wi Fi or internet to my TV.it is vizio and model number is J V 50 P HD TV 10 A. and Serial number is PHLANCJ2804679. I WANT CONECT WITH INTERNET FOR NETFLIX PLEASE LET ME WHAT CAN I DO.


As I type this, I am using my Vizio 50" plasma. All you need to do is ditch your current monitor you use for your internet service and use the same cord from the monitor to plug it into your RBG port on the back of your tv.
Next for sound there is a 1/4 jack next to the RGB port on your tv. Connect your tv to your audio out on your computer. (headphones or aud out)
Select RGB on your tv, and your good to go. I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse for my computer which makes it more convenient.

The vizio e322vl headphone jack is not documented by Visio. There is an "Audio" spot next to "RGB PC" and I tried various jack sizes b none works. If you have a soulution, can you...


that audio jack is input only it is stereo jack to connect from the comptuer to the tv when using the RGB input. most headphone jacks if they are there would be on the side of flat panel tvs. otherwise the audio output may be digital(optical) or normal rca (red and white) that you can hookup to the headphone system.

Hello, Currently I have Vaio laptop connected to my Vizio 42" inch flat screen TV. There's no audio coming from my Vizio TV. So I connected an audio cable connected to the stereo jack. Where do I connect...


You need a 1/8 in cord on both ends. Normally, its an 1/8 inch audio connection in your tv to work with PC (the same connection as when you plug it in your comp) So u would need a wire that both ends are 1/8 inch (Headphone jack sized)
