Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a samsung LN32A450. When I connect my laptop to to it via the vga port the tv doesn't recognize it. I tried different resolutions and two different laptops: compaq Evo 180 & IBM ThinkPad. I know that the laptops vga outputs are functioning properly as i tested the same settings on a SONY Bravia KDL-32M3000. Thanks in advance.

TV won't recognize PC through HDMI port anymore

Thanks for all the background, super detailed! I had a similar problem on a new Samsung that was really flaky with my HDMI from a raspberry pi. Would have to do all kinds of unplugging, cycling power etc like you're doing to get it to work. Once on it would work until I turned the tv off (actually doesn't turn off, but goes to sleep) and back on. Finally figured out that the resolution I was outputting wasn't supported, BUT sometimes it would work. Once I changed the resolution to a supported resolution it worked all the time.

Connect hp pavilion to mitsubishi ws55511

Well, I do have an answer for this one, but your not going to like it. The only resolution this tv is compatible with through the VGA input is 640x480 @ 60 Hz. I have hooked my laptop up to a tv similar to this one and the best way of doing it is basically any other input that is available out of your laptop. Mine was an S-Video port. It just doesn't look good through the VGA. I know it's not the answer you were looking for, but it's the truth.

Jvc 56dlp connect computer

If you are getting an invalid input its because the resolution setting on your computer is probably set too high. The JVC only accepts 2 resolutions one is like 600x400 and the other is 1280x768. I had this problem all the time with vista. It can't seem to remember what resolution to use. The exact setting are also listed in owners manual.

Cant connect VGA form laptop to TV.

Sounds like you may be trying to use a resolution or scan rate the TV does not support. Many of these televisions do not support 720p, but DO support 1080i.

Good luck.

Connecting the laptop VGA output to my Sony-KP-53HS30

There are products such as VideoSecu PC to TV Presentation Converter. I haven't used them. I'm not sure you are going to get the resolution that you want. A DLP projector does a pretty good job. I know that is not what you are looking for.

Type "PC to TV Converter" in Google. They are about $40 to $60 bucks. Before you buy one, read the reviews.

PC Connection problems with TV LE40R8

I've managed to fix this problem with my setup - A Tranquil T2-WHS-A3 using the built in SiS 662 Mirage 1 IGP.

I had the same issue. When I connected the computer to the scren using the vga lead, the screen would power off. I tried a number of different (in spec) resolutions - all the same result. Note that this computer worked fine with two other monitors.

I have now put a KVM between the computer and the monitor. This KVM is serving no pupose but getting in the way! However, it now works!

My guess is that either my video card is outputting slightly over the spec voltage on one or more of the vga lines, or the TV is being picky and wanting lower than the max spec. With the KVM in the way, some of the voltage is dropped across and so it works.

One thing to note I still can't get the largest spec resolution (1360 x 768) to work. but 1024x768 and 1152x864 do work.

Hope this helps!

Samsung LCD TV not receiving PC signal

Check your vga cable. Some cables have only 14 pins, some have all 15. The missing pin is pin 9, in the 15 pin cable it carries 5v from the graphics card to the screen. Without that 5v signal most LCD and Plasma television screens won't recognise a PC input. I had the same problem and only managed to fix it when my girlfriend swapped a cable over for me and as she did so glanced inside and said "it's got a bit missing" The cable that came with your PC most likely only has 14 ins as that is all a monitor screen needs.
You can buy a 15 pin cable at most PC or electronic shops, just check that isdoes have all 15 pins befiore you buy it. The cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones unless you are buying 20 foot cable. For 6 foot cable the cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones.
