Connecting laptop to TV using Composite Video ? RCA connector
I am using a Toshiba laptop and tring to connect to Sony Trinitron TV using a RCA connector.
I have changed the display properties to multiple monitors. But I am not getting any display on the TV even after typing Fn+F5. The screen is blank on the TV.
And i would also like to have the audio connected to the TV from the Laptop. I would like to know what cable can be used for this. If possible attach a photo of the cable so that it would be easy for me identify when buying the same.
Thank you very much in advance.

Assuming what you are trying to do is make your HDTV a giant monitor, your HDTV will need analog video input capability --either a standard d-type VGA connector or RGB composite RCA plugs. The laptop has a d-type VGA output. You will need a cable that has matching end for your laptop and TV....either VGA-to-VGA (d-type) or VGA-to-composite. This will handle the vcideo. You will also need a min stereo-to-mini-stereo cable to connect the audio from the headphone output of the laptop to the HDTV.
The TV inputs are as follows Red and white RCA connectors is for left and right stereo audio Yellow RCA connector is for composite video. You need an adapter to convert 15pin video to RCA audio and composite video This WEB site has this adapter. www.amazon.com/Gino-S-Video-Composite-Adapter-Converter/dp/B0087ZB1E4
Use three RCA cables, yellow, white and red to connect DVD player to TV as shown in the diagram below. Connect yellow to yellow and white to white. Connect red to red. Select on the TV, the A/V input where the DVD is connected using the TV remote control. Power on TV and DVD, place a disc in tray of DVD player and press PLAY.
Component video IS analog. It is also known as Y-Pr-Br. These connections are typically RCA connectors colored Red/Green/Blue.
Component will give you the highest quality signal for analog connections (vs Composite Video (yellowRCA) or S-Video(the round 4 pin connector) Of course HDMI will be best if it is supported.
Keep in mind video signal formats are NOT interchangable, you cannot plug a Composite Video into a Component Input
All you need is a component source (typically a DVD player) and 3 RCA cables and match the colors up.
You will also need to connect the Audio connectors (Red/White) with RCA cables, as the Component is Video only
I hope this helps,
Usually video and audio outputs from VCR comes in composite (yellow RCA female connector) or S-Video outputs for video and L and R (white and red female RCA connectors) for stereo ouputs or black RCA female connector for mono output, you must look for the matching analog inputs at your TV set, the RF output can be used too, you only must tune the TV at the channel used by VCR.
if you are connected the S video output of ur dvd to ur tvs s video input , the u should connect another two RCA cable fo audio.S video connection is only for video input. connect the audio out put of ur dvd to the corresponding S video audio input, using a stereo RCA chord.
Yes, you should be able to. You will need to buy a $20 adapter. Sewell Direct sells them, also Amazon.com. They are called VGA to RCA composite video converter. This will convert your laptop's VGA output to RCA composite video for connection to your TV yellow video input. Connect an audio cable from laptop's earphone output to the TV's RCA audio inputs (white and red) using a 3.5mm to RCA adapter cable available at Radio Shack for about $10. This will work. You can see everything that the laptop displays on the TV. You can even hookup a VCR to record it all.
Yes you can. If you have composite video out. Composite video is the Yellow connector like you see on TV's, DVD's, VCR's, and other items. It uses a standard RCA connector.
If your laptop doesn't have a composite out you can purchase an adapter that will supply this. These adapters are usually connect to your USB port.
Check your notebook for "S-Video / TV out" port that has a 7-pin jack instead of a standard 4-pin S-Video jack. Check your laptop before ordering this adapter.
The newer your computer is, the better chance that it comes with either a RCA Composite or SVIDEO connection. Some notebook computers also have video outputs on them. When buying a new computer always look for the words "TV out" or "video out" in the computer description.
If you only have a VGA connector and don't have an HDTV then your best choice is to buy a newer video card with an S-Video connector. There are other third party solutions out there but the quality is very poor and we do not recommend it.
The VGA port is the connector that's connected to your PC monitor (the TV like device that came with your computer). This connector is usually only usable for VGA Monitors or HDTV setups. If you have an HDTV this will give you the best image possible.
If you have an RCA Composite connector on the back of your computer, then you can use that. You may also need to power down your computer and reboot to be able to get the signal. You need an RCA Composite cable that will be long enough to reach from your computer to your PC. Connect the cable to the back of the computer to the back of your TV SET.
S-Video is superior to that of RCA Composite and will give you a clearer picture. If you have a fairly new TV you should have this connector in the back. You will need to buy an S-VIDEO cable, which you can buy just about anywhere you buy home video products. Connect the cable to your S-Video on the back of your computer and then connect it on the back of your TV
Your Sony has several varieties of possible connections. They include,
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
Make sure that the appropriate choice with in the menu "SETUP" option matches the connection at the rear. If this is done correctly and you still have now picture it may be an issue with the cable or the connector on the end. Check the tip to make sure that there is between 1/8 to 1/4 inch of the internal wire past the end of the connector. If this looks ok try a different hook up such as the "S-VIDEO" cable and seperate left and right audio "RCA" cable. If you have no image after trying one of the other connection types then the issue may be with the TV itself which would require servicing. Hope this helps
