SOURCE: 19'' Dynex TV does not come up as a Computer Monitor.

I had this same problem with the 19" model as well. I had to reinstall video driver with the tv hooked up in order for the resolutions to work properly. In order to do this I used an S-video cable which worked well enough to reinstall the video driver. I did not try safe mode which might have been easier, I just did not think of it at the time. With the video driver reinstalled while the TV is attached to my computer, I know enjoy a crisp 1440x900 screen resolution. Hope this helps.

Make sure that you set your laptop to external display by using the proper F key, located on top of the keyboard. It looks as though there are two computer monitors on it. My Gateway is F4 for example. Press the function key and the proper F key simultaneously. There are a few choices, so you may have to push it more than once. I hope this helps and good luck!

How do i connect my laptop to my dynex tv?


This depends on your hardware. If you have HDMI port on your laptop and on your TV it is the best and easyest option for your case. Just plug-in the hdmi cable, go to your computer Control Panel->Display and configure the second monitor as extended. Your TV must be monitor number 2 and you should use recommended settings for the picture resolution.
From your TV go to input source list and select the HDMI port.
Now you should see your desktop background without the taskbar and icons. So you can drag and drop the application you want to see on your Dynex TV(secondary monitor) and that's it. This method will bring video and audio just with one cable. Of course you can use VGA port on the Tv, but the quality of the picture will drop and you must have separate cable for the sound.

Hi, I have a Dynex flat screen and I want to play a video. I connected the RCA cables. What do I need to do?


Hi If you have connected the RCA cables corretly, that is, Yellow, Red, and White colured sockets of video source component, may be a VCR, DVD, Blu-Ray etc; to the respective colured sockets to the TV, just switch ON both the devices, insert a video casette, CD or DVD whatever it may be into the source player. Get into the Menu of TV, surf through; and come towards its Input option and select the input you want to get through it. Hilight that option and press enter button on the remote control. When the correct input have been selected you will see the video signals plays through your TV. OK.

I have a inspiron1300,and i wondered if it is possibe to connect it to my philips hdready tv.am sure which cable to use


You never mentioned what model Philips TV you have, however I've researched several and most seem to have a VGA video port in the back of them. If you have one of these (15 pin D connector) on the back of your TV you should be able to purchase a corresponding VGA cable (you'll want female pins on one side of the cable and male pins on the other side) and plug one side into the VGA port on your laptop and the other cable into the TV. Then use your TV remote to select that input. Should work fine!
See item 8 in the attached user guide link to see what I'm talking about. http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/4/42pfl3403_98/42pfl3403_98_qsg_eng.pdf
I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck! If I can help you further, please let me know.

My closed caption on my new dynex 26L 150A11 will not turn on. I have followed all instructions in the book. I need the cc. any one have an answer? thanks cosycat


Hi,

There are several possibilities here so you will need to work with me to resolve this problem. In order for Closed Captioning (CC) to work, you need to make sure the CC settings are correct on the TV, and then make sure they CC is switched on. In addition, if you are using a cable or satellite receiver box, CC also needs to be switched on for these "boxes".

It's easiest to start with the TV. Please make sure you have done the following:

1. Check the Closed Caption settings are as follows from the TV on-screen menu as follows:

a) Press the "MENU" button on the DYNEX remote
b) Press the RIGHT arrow twice to highlight the "SETUP" menu
c) Press the DOWN arrow once to open the "SETUP" menu
d) Press the DOWN arrow twice to highlight "CLOSED CAPTION"
e) Press the RIGHT arrow or the "ENTER" button once to open the CLOSED CAPTION MENU
f) Make sure the Closed Caption option "CC MODE" is set to "ON". This can be changed using the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight "CC MODE" and using the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to switch between off and on.

The "Basic Selection" and "Advanced Selection" settings are for analogue and digital closed-captions respectively. In addition, the "Options" sub-menu can be used to change the size and style of the digital closed captions (Advanced Selection). All three of these options should eventually be set according to your personal preferences, but for the purposes of making sure it is working, I suggest you set them as follows:

Basic Selection = CC1
Advanced Selection = Service 1

These options are the basic settings which will display only the spoken dialogue of the TV program.

g) Press "EXIT" on the remote to close the menu and return to viewing mode.

2. Press the "CCD" button on your Dynex remote control. This can be found in the bottom right-hand corner of the remote. Each press of the "CCD" button will cycle the closed captions between ON and OFF. (CCD means Closed Caption Display)

3. Check the Closed Captions are displayed and then adjust the Basic and Advanced Selection options until the type and appearance of the closed captions are how you like them.

If you have done the above and still cannot get it to work, please let me know whether you are using a cable or satellite receiver and the brand/model number. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

Connecting my laptop to my samsung tele


Most common problem is the VGA cable. Make sure you have the 15 pin VGA Monitor cable.

1. Switch off the TV & Notebook
2. Connect the VGA cable to the TV and Notebook.
3. Switch on the Notebook. Set the resolution to 800 x 600 Pixels (Go to Control Panel - Adjust Screen Resolution). Then go to Advanced settings and set 'Screen Refresh rate' as 60 hz in the Monitor tab,
4. Switch on the TV. Go to Source button from the TV remote and select PC as input source. Alternatively, you can go to 'Menu' and select 'PC' as input source. If the connection is made properly, PC option will NOT be GREY anymore.
5. Press Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depending on which Notebook brand you have)
